You can call Karen Dalby of Maritz Research on her personal cell to be removed from their list:
If you need to reach me, my cell is 636-346-7351
Maritz Research is a consumer research company not a telemarketing company. As such, we called you on a behalf of a company with which you are a customer that wants your opinion.
We work for many companies who use that feedback to help them do a better job meeting your needs. Since we are conducting market research, and are not selling a product or service (telemarketing), our call to you is permitted under both the National and State Do-Not-Call laws. However, when someone asks us to not call them again, we honor that request by adding their telephone number to our internal Do-Not-Call listing and ceasing any further attempts.
Please provide me with your telephone number(s) and I will immediately add the number(s) to our internal Do Not Cal List.
called my cell phone which i have not given out. dropped to voice mail that has the 3 SIT tones and a brief message charities, telemarketers, political, and surveys put me on do not call list and that they are unauthorized to call this number !
Survey for Bank of America.???
STOP IT !!!
I have been on their do not call list since august of 2011. They still keep calling. In the past two weeks, I have received at least 10 calls from them. Three of those times, I answered and informed them that I was on their do not call list. The responses were polite and they apologized, but they keep calling. They are taking surveys for Bank of America in my case - they also do surveys for others.
Today, I called BoA about it. I was informed that I had been on Maritz's do not call list since 8/2011. The BoA representative re-established my status on the don not call list.
I called a Bonnie Murphy at Maritz (Phone # 636-827-1995) and told her that I had been on Maritz's DNC list since 8/2011, but still keep getting calls. She apologized, re-established my number on the Maritz's DNC and said she would speak to her supervisor.
I told both BoA and Maritz that I would give it a week. If after that week I receive a call from Maritz, I will close all BoA accouts, take my BoA mortgage elsewhere and call a lawyer.This is harassment as far as I'm concerned.
Asking to be put on Maritz's DNC list does not work - their employees apparently don't check the list. Perhaps a class-action lawsuit will get the point across to both Maritz and BoA.
When Maritz calls wanting to do a survey, ask to be placed on THEIR DNC list. After that, you will not receive calls from them, regardless of client. Contacting the FCC will do nothing because they are not selling anything, thus the calls are not regulated by them. Very easy stuff.
Got a call, survey for advance auto. Must be survey co.Op
Called 9-15-12 and left no message. If it was legitimate, they should have left a message.
If you answer or call back, you validate your number and they will call again!
We don't have long distance service, so would have to use a pay phone to call & get off their call list. If they are legitimate, why don't they have an email address where people could just opt out? We have not made purchases, nor hired any cars, etc, so do not know why they would call us? We are in our 80's and do not answer unknown or unsolicited calls, we just hang up on them and hope that someday they will get the message that we will not take their calls.Wish us luck.
keeps calling, no one at the other end when you answer and never leaves messages
I have gotten this call a couple of times but It is identified as Maritz Research. I also suspect a hijacked number. I never answer phone numbers I don't recognize. The DNC list is a joke!
One more thing (these people really got my dander up because they play outside the rule): I contacted Maritz Research directly via their website Contact page with a complaint, informing them that their internal opt-out system is not working and this is written notification: they are instructed to remove my phone number from call lists, and to register it as opted-out. Told them I'm keeping a record of this online note and will send it to the Federal Do Not Call Registry and other consumer oversight groups if the calls don't stop within 3 business days.
Here is "Contact" page URL: http://www.maritzresearch.com/contact.aspx
Maritz "Research." http://www.maritzresearch.com/
Presumably finding out how your Bank of America-related experience was. That's not for our benefit, it's for BoA's marketing.
I've done some more of my own research on their relationship with Bank of America, noted here in many entries. I too am on Do Not Call, filed a complaint there several weeks ago, and have had no success opting out of their calls with their internal list by calling the Maritz Research 800 number for opt-out.
I do have a banking relationship with BoA, so today I've gone to BoA's site and done 2 things -- these pages took a lot of time to find, buried deep in the site, so here they are for everyone's convenience:
1) Registered with their opt-out program, and after opting out, stayed on the page & entered specific complaints about Maritz on the Feedback popup form (lower right corner of screen):
2) Looked up their affiliated businesses, on this page:
https://www4.bankofamerica.com/privacy/Contro ... cnsmraffiliates
Nowhere on the page (or in the BoA site keyword search) does Maritz come up. So I filled out the popup feedback form here with a complaint.
I also re-filed a Federal Do Not Call complaint with more information, and indicated Maritz should be fined again (one contributor here says they have been heftily fined already) & at an amount that will actually stop them from making a nuisance of themselves to thousands of people every day who cannot make them go away.
Good luck, everyone! Give 'em h*ll.
Caller ID says Maritz Research. They still call about once a week even though I have instructed them to put me on their Do Not Call list when I've spoken to a person, and have also used the 800 number (weeks ago) to put my number on their Do Not Call list. They don't take no for an answer.
To my dismay, this is a Spoofed Caller ID, which happens, not surprisingly, to be a scam.
So, supposedly, someone from "Bank Of America" is reporting some "fraudulent activity" in your account and all they need to steal your identity... errr, I mean, "to verify that your information is safe" (yeah, sure) is your SSN, current address, DOB, bank account information, your blood type, the name of your pet and even your high school diploma.... information which obviously, no one with an upper-double digit I.Q. would release.
So, you can calmly and courteously tell them to go soak their heads (or use harsher words, depends on your style). Or if you want, use the air horn thingy as someone suggested here. Problem is: in my particular situation, that will scare the beejeezus out of my co-workers with that unorthodox technique.
Instead of getting on her and crying that someone is calling me and I am on the Do Not Call List, I read some of the more informative posts. It is just a company that does surveys. They are nice enough to offer a phone number for you to call and have your number removed from their internal list. 1800 864 8601 I have done it and it worked. Take the time to do a little research and you will have nothing to cry about anymore.
son of the mustard tiger
I got a call saying she was from Capital One wanting to ask me about my recent phone call in to customer service...I couldn't remember calling them at all and the only thing related is I just changed my address online. She didn't seem at all concerned that I, the only car holder, had not made any calls in to Capital One and then ended the call promptly. Can only imagine all she cared about was my "satisfaction", not whether I made the call in the first place...
these people need to leave a messege if they are legit.
They just called me and got an airhorn blast - will not be hearing from them again. If you want to stop these calls (or at least reduce them) you should go to WalMart and get a $20 air horn and blast that thing in the receiver when ever a telemarketer, survey taker, bill collector, etc calls. Want to hear something funny? Listen to their reaction.
We are on the do not call registry. Should not be receiving calls from this company.
i agree with pat hhhaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

Unwanted. called 3 times in 4 days. wanted to verify our satisfaction with their service on long distance calls.
Don't know them and don't want their calls.
Called Twice in 24 hrs both after 5pm

The home health care company who owns that number I'm sure appreciates it.
Another call from them. Silence when I pick up and then the robot hangs up
Maritz Research, calling on behalf of Bank of America. Called at 8:47pm on a Wednesday nite. RUDE!
