I received a call from this number in regards to a vaccine survey. Due to concerns with privacy and scams, I made the effort to research this number in full. I got off the call and researched the vaccine study to verify it was legitimate. I researched M/A/R/C Research (marcresearch.com) to verify they were the company selected to perform the survey. Here is a link to the details on the clinical trial that the survey is gathering data for: . Finally, I called M/A/R/C Research's headquarters phone number from their website (800-884-6272) to verify that the phone numbers 858-391-4123 and 877-542-5471 are indeed their phone numbers. It turns out that those phone numbers are indeed their phone numbers. Since this call is related to surveys for approved clinical trials, I believe that is why it is exempt from the do not call registry. This is not a scam. I actually did the home work. It took me several hours to research this. I spoke with Melanie from their HIB Study help desk to verify their phone numbers, but I did this by calling their main phone numbers that I looked up, not through the people who called me.
I had several missed calls from this number. They have called on my work blackberry. I finally answered and the guy says "Oh, wrong number", when I answered with my business "Hello, this is...." Very odd!
They have called several times a day for several days now, I have not answered & do not plan to. I am however thinking about changing my voicemail message to one directed at them. What I want to know is, are they not held to the do not call list?
Caller I.D. shows caller as 'vaccine study.' I didn't answer.
