My family has been getting harassing phone calls from Quin Street who were representing themselves as Home Depot. They finally admitted they did not work for Home Depot after claiming they did. They also said they were not telemarketers then turned around and admitted it in different words. Here is the complaint I filed with the Privacy Rights Clearinghouse.
“We’ve been getting calls from Quin Street who were representing themselves as Home Depot. The last time they called my girlfriend gave me the phone and after some polite badgering on my part they admitted they didn’t work for Home Depot. They also claimed that we had requested information from them early this morning which was impossible and doesn’t jive with the fact that they’ve been calling us multiple times a day for over a week. I asked how they got our information when we couldn’t have possibly submitted it and then I was told that someone submitted it on our behalf. They wouldn’t tell me who though and told me I had fax them my driver’s license before they would give me this information. I also asked to speak with a higher up and they refused, the girl claiming she was the supervisor though I strongly doubt that. They also denied that they are telemarketers then turned around and basically admitted they were in different words. As you can see from the website, they clearly are telemarketers.”
Telemarketing is Invasion of Privacy period. No ifs, ands, or buts.
