Unprofessional Lieberman Research Worldwide at 1-800-GO-FU** yourself?
On Friday, April 6, 2007 we got a call in the evening at our home in the Bay Area from a cold caller who said he was calling from Lieberman Research Worldwide and wanted to ask us some questions related to DVDs.
When I declined and asked him to remove us from his calling list he said he would do that only after we finished the 2 minute questionnaire. When I asked him for the phone number he was calling from -- he responded that the phone number was 1-800-943-GO FU** YOURSELF.
Considering that these cold callers are calling us without our permission, wasting our time and spamming us, is this the kind of behavior Lieberman Research Worldwide promotes for its clients? Do their clients know about this?
I'd emailed them back on April 6 to ask for a response but have yet to get one almost two weeks later. Such companies' clients should be warned that consumers won't put up with such unprofessional conduct.
New 4/7/08: It appears that there are two companies that are named Lieberman Research: Lieberman Research Worldwide and Lieberman Research Group. I recently got an email from Lieberman Research Group's CFO disputing that their contractors or employees had anything to do with this, and that they don't do DVD surveys. If that is the case, then my apologies. I had linked to both websites since it was unclear which company was at fault, or whether the two companies are related.
