Rose Stama, 85, finally has relief.
NY1 called Verizon and STI and they determined that STI technicians accidentally listed Stama's number as the outgoing number for STI's calling cards. The two numbers, as it turns out, differed by only a digit.
To compensate Stama for the aggravation, STI gave her a $1,500 check and, more importantly, stopped the calls.
"It wasn't just that they gave us the money and that was it. They actually did fix the problem," said D'Amato. "We can actually sit and eat a meal without having to get up 10 times to answer the phone."
