These people absolutely refuse to stop calling. They claim that since they are doing research only and not selling anything the DNC dos not apply. I have called them back several times left messages and spoke to 3 people attempting to have my number added to their do not call list but I am still receiving calls. The most frustrating aspect is that the calls come consecutively 5 - 12 calls in a row. in 3 days I have received over 180 calls.
I have already filed complaints with the FTC, FCC and the NJ Better Business Bureau. I also have the call logs showing all calls as well as the calls I made to Maximum Research.
This is outright harassment and these people need to be penalized regardless of the loopholes in the DNC. Does this mean I can claim I am doing research and start calling people continuously at all hours of the day - even if they tell me to stop???
