In Reply to: Telephone harassment from BMW posted by Rachel on November 07, 2000 at 18:24:33:

Hi Rachael,
I had a similar experience like yours a few months ago.. I was able to determine that because I had given my number to my dealer when I taken the car in for service and they had ordered new parts (new sub woofer) for my 2.3 I had given them my home phone number (to call and let me know when my car was ready!)

I think that all service performed on a BMW is stored in a central database and any other car dealer can access that cars info give the VIN number of the BMW. (I have seen this done.. and can swear on it!) So if the dealer had taken your order number in and had put your telephone number into this system I belive that ... this is how BMW USA got your home phone number as well because they too have access to this database.

How I handled it? I now pay Bell Atlantic some more $'s a month and have a block on incoming phone calls that block their caller id.
