They've started calling every morning now and when I answered, the lady knew my name. BAH.
I've gotten this call many times before over the past couple years, although I would say I get it less than once a month or two or three months. This time, I answered and a woman was on the line. She said they were Disadvantage Industries, and told me that they call a couple of times a year. She said they benefit blind and handicapped, helping them to make a living. She started rattling off random items that she wanted to sell. I asked her if she was with them or a telemarketing co, and she said with this company, disadvantage industries. I asked if they had a "do not call policy" and she said they could put me on a list for it. I asked if she had a policy she could mail out to call recipients, and she said no, they don't have that. I asked who her supervisor was, and she hung up on me. They will prob. call even if you are on the DNC list, b/c they will claim non-profit status (she said they were non-profit). So, if they're a scam, and really are for profit, they are really skanky, hiding behind non-profit status to bilk money out of the kindhearted, harming true non-profits and harrassing ppl on the phone.
They called today and left a message saying Hello,hello...
this company wanted to sell me pepper spray for $28.00 each, then changed to $9.00 per bottle. something is wrong here with this picture. bbb must investigate

I don't answer; says "unknown caller"
They do not leave message on voicemail.
and when you try to call the # back you go straight to voice mail which is full so that you cannot leave a message or even get a real person on the phone
they call me constantly and when I answer they just hang up. Really annoying.
They just hung up whne I started talking about not wanting the call
When I picked up today it disconected. I have talked with an individual twice and asked to have my name removed. Who do you contact to give a complaint?

The rep was very rude and unprofessional and when I started to be asked to be put on the do not call list, he hung up on me.
No message left. They don't answer when trying to call them back. Can't even leave them a message because their mailbox is full.
No message... when I answer it hangs up.
They didn't "harrass" me, the gentleman on the phone seemed nervous but not rude. I ordered pepper spray, a bit overpriced but they don't ask for any personal financial information and prefer a money order. They obviously know people are annoyed and are complaining but at least the number is consistent across the nation and trackable.
I have received so many calls from these people it is driving me crazy! They call at least every two weeks or more wanting me to buy things from them. It makes me feel guilty because they give me a story about how they are not going to live if I do not buy from them.
I heard from the PUC...
You may contact The Attorney General Office at 1-800-621-0508
to file a harassing phone call complaint. The Do Not Call List only handles solicitations.
This has been going on for months. I don't believe this number is related to US Disadvantage because I have purchased their cling wrap that lasts forever. When the caller doesn't hang up, he is RUDE. Time for the PUC to step in!! I belive this is could be fraud if you purchased products and it is harassment!
I finally picked up on the fourth call I got from US Disadvantage in 2 days. They are trying to sell you products supposedly made and packaged by blind or disabled individuals, which are quite pricy, I might add. (seventy bucks for a bottle of cleaner!)
this is driving me crazy. I receive atleast 1 call per day and up to 4. I answer and the call just disconnects. I have called AT&T to report the issue. If I figure out who this is, they will not be happy hearing from me directly. This is harrassment.
Well, they don't leave a message, and the last time we answered, they hung up. I don't want a disadvantage anyway...
no message left
