“Hello, you’ve reached the desk of Karen Hollis with Los Angeles-based National Tax Advisory Services LLC, an A+ BBB-rated company. We were trying to reach you regarding the new zero-tax-owed debt relief program that is now open for enrollment. Our records show you may still have some open tax debt and the new zero-tax-owed debt relief program will allow you to eliminate this debt, given it will be deemed temporarily non collectible. However, you must elect during the current open enrollment. If you have tax debt and would like to enroll in the program, please press one. If you have no tax debt or are simply not interested, please press two to be removed from our list. Thanks and have a good day.”

They are now going as “National Debt Advisory Services, LLC.”
Thanks for the mention of the new name. NTAS has been the defendant in some other TCPA cases. If you look up Rebecca Miller v. [NTAS], there are actually two cases. As I understand it, the plaintiff won a judgement aginst NTAS for their robocalls, and NTAS continued to call her.
I think Shane Scofield and Mabel Arredondo might also have settled with NTAS, but I don’t know if either plaintiff has been paid yet.
I got four “ringless voicemails” from them in late Jan./early Feb. using the name “U.S. Tax Experts.” Calls to the numbers given in the voicemail are answered as “Tax Group” (a name that appeared in one of the other TCPA lawsuits I’m aware of), and eventually get transferred to NTAS. Some people answering the phones there seem to think they’re doing God’s work or something. The FCC ruled not long ago that ringless voicemails are a TCPA violation.
The originating numbers, all from my own area code, are a mix of CenturyLink and other carriers. They aren’t exactly spoofed. Calls to those numbers usually go to a recording that says something about “No one is available to take your call. Press 2 to opt-out.” Well, I never opted-in, so I might hafta sue them, too.
The callback numbers left in the voicemails also seem to be all or at least mostly Telnyx numbers, too. In two of the voicemails, the robobimbos gave two different callback numbers. I hope there’s a way to subpoena subscriber info for a civil case.
As always, good research, OGE. What are you using for reverse lookups these days?
