User Complaints for 858-391-4123
Caller name: Carlos with M/A/R/C Research
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: http://www.clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT00855855?term=hib&rank=15. 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.
Caller name: Poway, CA
We have received several calls from this number and never answered until tonight. The caller said they were doing a survey and wanted to know if he reached a residential number or a cell phone. I told him I did not care to answer the question. I told him we have received several calls from that number, and I asked what we had to do to have the stop calling us. He said he would put us on their do not call list. Caller ID says Poway, CA.
Caller name: Marco
I was told this was survey about vaccinations.
I asked who was paying for the survey.
Says the survey is being paid for by Mark Research.
Every survey has a customer, no one does these on spec.
Lie # 1
"Is this a residential line or a cell phone."
I said, that's not a health or vaccination question
Answer: it's a security question
I told him to move onto the next question.
Response: It's for your security in case you are in a car.
I told him, next question or end the survey.
He hung up.
Makes no sense. Real telemarketing and survey customers already know based on do not call registries and phone company records.
They say they're calling on behalf of MARC Research to do a vaccination survey. She said something about speaking with the person who handles the vaccines in the household and I said our youngest child is 18. I asked what it was all about and she said it was "a real study where information about children's vaccinations is collected and used to prevent future infections." Simple enough.
She then said they're looking for families with children who are early vaccination age, so 5 or younger, and said we don't qualify. She thanked me for my time and said I wouldn't be getting any more calls and wished me a pleasant evening.
No calls since.
Upon further investigation I found that MARC is a legitimate research company that does the studies. They do one for Pertussis vaccines and one for HIB vaccines. If you go through the study they give you $30 for your time. Like, I said, I didn't qualify.
Basically all you have to do is answer the first question or two and they'll tell you you don't qualify, and then you don't get anymore calls. I think a mistake people make is not answering or hanging up before you know what the call's about. I always answer and listen then decide if it's worth going through. In most cases I answer a few questions and they say I don't qualify and no more calls! :)
Also, if you look up the Do Not Call list it states that it protects you from calls from telemarketers, not from research calls. Telemarketers are the ones trying to sell things over the phone. Researchers don't try to sell anything to you.
Caller name: who knows
Look i get alot of unknown callers as well and butt dialers not real happy with those folks either but one calls on Sunday how foes that work? Most people i know are still unemployed on sundays.
Caller name: Vacine survey?
Can tell if they are a scam, but some scammers are saying they are a survey so they can get around the law that says they cannot call us. If you have any doubt about these calls, report them like all the others to the FTC at 1-888-382-1222.

Caller name: Vaccine Study
This was the second call from this number... didn't answer first. I did this time and was told they were doing a vaccine study on children... told him no children in the household and he said thank you and hung up. Just guessing but may attempting to learn more about the type of household for future telemarketing, or whatever?? Will tell them not to call next time and report if it continues, fwiw.
Caller name: MARC Research
So I actually work for these people. If you don't have any kids in your household, just answer their questions. Takes maybe thirty seconds and they'll never call you again. Just answer your phone and act like a human being for a few seconds.
It is a legitimate study. Information can be found at marc-research.com
Honestly it's not as annoying as you're all trying to say. Simply listen carefully, when they ask to speak with the person who takes care of children's vaccinations in your household just say there are no small children. You'll never hear from them again.
