3. Refuse delivery.
4. Return delivered but opened packages COD. If package is opened, the scamming company will refuse returns and demand payment.
5. Send a certified letter to the scamming business about what happened.

I would like to talk to a person rather than an auto-attendant.
It is actually quicker and easier to place a service call via the automated attendant than if you are placed on hold for the next available dispatcher. Our dispatchers retrieve the automated calls to expedite service and reduce your response time. However, you can ask to be placed on hold until the someone is available to take your call and enter your request into our system.
