What Braun and its employees who posted here don't know (or care about) is Braun's pitch of upholding the "highest ethical staandard" of market research is absolute BS. They do not have any quality control and that's why you see hundreds of complaints (search the name to see all the other numbers they use). Legitimate researchers do not call again and again, night after night, after being asked not to call again. Legitimate researches do not use systems that arbitrarily hang up when the call is answered. Conplaints to the Company HQ and govt. go unheaded. So, bring the complaints to those who hire them. Bank of Amererica is know to use them, and now so are political parties. Let your candidates and party know that if they use Braun, they just might lose your vote. There are plenty of polling - survey firms out there to use, and I have never been annoyed with any of them like I have with Braun!

Calls come several times a day at all hours, sometimes back to back. Most often no one responds the few times I tried to answer (I wanted to tell them to stop calling). Numerous calls over past week. Nothing on caller ID but the phone number.

Oh and charles and all the other telemarketers out there how about working for a company that does not harrass people. I too am trying to earn a living which is hard to do when they keep calling my business line. The majority of my work is done on a phone but I dont call people and hang up repeatedly. Charles,find a company who choses not to harass people rserepeatedly. You will respect yourself more and sleep better at night.

There was a post from Janet in 3/2007 who gave the above link, I tried it and got an actual person who said she would take me off the list. I also emailed doshman@braunresearch.com and let him know this was harrassing and this is being reported to the FTC. Also file a complaint with the BBB 888-527-7779. The more complaints we make to quicker we can get these people to stop this harrassment. I had some guy call me yesterday who was heavy breathing then yelled something in "redneck" which I am not fluent in so I have no idea what he said. I would love to know how much "business" they really do and what the business really is. Please report these people!!!!

This is what you people don't get, Research does not apply to the do not call list because government realizes the importance of research. I realize if you are mad because the person hung up on you but most of us working as interviewers or telemarketers are normal people just like you,
Amy
 Aug 27th, 2007
For all of you who have gotten "dead air" when getting calls from 609-279-2122 I am sorry. It is because research centers have dialers that randomly generate numbers. And technology has its errors. I know you are upset with this, but Braun Research pays my bills. And just remember when one of these annoying people are trying to get you to do the survey they are just doing their job.

It rang three times and I picked up and there was no one there. Caller ID says, Unknown Name. I signed up for the DO NOT CALL and I am getting calls from cellphones from unknown annomous callers, no doubt solicitors, out the gazoo. Isn't there anyway to STOP this harrassment? grrrrrrrrr

Thanks to the tip from this website I filed a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission against Braun. I spoke with a very nice rep at the BBB in Jersey who directed me to the FTC. Check out the response I got from the moron at Braun
am sorry you feel the need to make accusations of someone you do not know. I understand your frustration when you receive a call that you are not wanting to take. Generally when I am informed to stop calling a particular number I research the phone number that is supplied to us since many numbers are just that numbers no personal information attached and research the history of the calling then and if it has not already been done disposition the number as a strong refusal/no callback.

I am quite familiar with generally the list you supplied. I was surprised that someone thought that I was a sexual deviate when they googled my name and came up with a website of another individual who lives in a neighboring state. Actually a couple of people who noticed the entry commented on my behalf. Many of those respondents had legitimate concerns and they were addressed if they called and reached me. Others left threatening messages and death threats and unfortunately I need to get by that and do my job. There are ways to address issues and then there are times when people take matters over the line. Yes I do receive letters from the BBB and Attorney General's Offices and they are addressed accordingly and we move on. The job comes with pros and cons and yes answering upset individual's emails and phone calls is part of that.

Caller ID showed Princeton, NJ 609-279-2122. Called on my ringmaster number, which is not listed. First call was on 8/10/07 at 10:30 p.m. Isn't that illegal to call someone that late at night??? I didn't answer and have no answering machine. And they've been calling at least once a day every day since.
You know, granted people are rude to telemarketers, but maybe they themselves should try to be less rude by not harassing people who flat out tell them they're not interested or don't answer their phones. They need to realize that they are intruding on the privacy of others. Instead of repeatedly calling them back and making matters worse, the telemarketers should stop calling that number. I mean, do they really think that people are going to cooperate with them after the tenth call any more than they would have on the first call???
Things aren't looking good for the future of the Braun Research, Inc, business.
Hope some of these complaints to the authorities finally work.

these people call my house now every single day! they have no idea how annoying this is! my parents decided that next time were calling the police!!! if this is all they do all day they must have forgoten to schedule an appointment with there theripist or... theripists!!! they must be mentally retarted. If they think i am retarted they have no idea how retarted they are. I am saying this because the very first time they called they said," Is this the household of the retart family?!" So I just decided to go along with it because usually when you go along with it they get annoyed and don't call you back but I was wrong. Another reason they are retarted is because they think that people are going to give there ID and imformation from where they live. THESE FREAKS BETTER GET OUT OF MY FAMILY'S LIFE NOW AND ESPECIALLY MINE!!

They called and left a voice message on my cell phone identifying themselves as Braun Research, and said they wanted to pay me for participating in a survey. I called back their company number--609-279-1600--and asked them to please take me off their call list. The gentleman I spoke to was very polite, even though I wasn't, and agreed to take it off. We'll see.

Second time from this number 609-279-2122. Called it back and got a real stupid guy. These guys need to be reported to the FTC. I am on the no call list and I told the guy this and ask for his location and he told me he was at 800 No Street on the moon and hung up. I plan on sending this number to the FTC, like they will do something, right. What a loser.

I don't think the link with the person you posted is correct. If you look at the location of the company, it is in Princeton, NJ and not in New York. That in no way is the person that is working for this company. I think you have got the wrong Dave Oshman. Maybe try your search again. Maybe you are the creepy person and the sexual swinger.
Jesse James
 Jun 14th, 2007
I just want to reply to "swiss" the very first comment posted. I work at Braun Research and KNOW Dave Oshman....I went to the website you have posted and that is NOT our Dave Oshman. Don't know if you are aware of this but many people have the SAME name. There is more than one Nichole Jones in this world. I am sure you can google that and find many other people with my same name. This is defamation of characther: You putting this website on here and saying it is Dave Oshman of Braun Research. For all of you who have gotten "dead air" when getting calls from 609-279-2122 I am sorry. It is because research centers have dialers that randomly generate numbers. And technology has its errors. I know you are upset with this, but Braun Research pays my bills. And just remember when one of these annoying people are trying to get you to do the survey they are just doing their job. I am a single Mom, Braun keeps me from having to get welfare. So, maybe doing a survey with me will keep your tax dollars going to something more productive.

6:30pm Portland Maine - phone rang on my cell, which is a number I never give out. Caller ID said:
609-279-2122. I answered the phone and no one was there. I know sometimes there is a delay for telemarketers so I waited and said hello several times, and they hung up.
I called back the 609 number and got the rote message that these calls are for your own good to improve "American commerce," and then called the Braun Research main number 609-279-1600 and then ext 103 for David C. Oshman - Vice President of Operations. I left a stern email, saying I would turn them into the FCC and/or contact my congressman and Senators and those in New Jersey (where they're based_ if they do not desist. Also, btw, I Googled this David Oshman person, and he seems to be a pretty creepy character (a sexual swinger):

You guys need to get a life. You all have something better to do beside piss and moan about a research company. I would know since I have and still currently working for one for four years now. You guys just yelling at as or hanging up without talking to us, we have to call you back. If not interested in doing the survey just tell us nicely or let us know that you are not interested in doing the survey. The results of our polls affect the services and prices of everything people use out there. Nobody answers them than the costs of things are going to go up and services will not improve. What is so hard to take a few minutes out of your day to answer a few questions and have the oppurtunity to voice your opinion? What is so hard about doing that. Also people do have testing and training to do the job for a research company. They just don't hire people Sometimes pay working for a research company is better than what some of the people on the phone are making at thier job. I bet it pry pays better than some of the jobs you guys have. Just try to be nice to us people. We have a job and serve a purpose even if you don't thinkso.

YOU PEOPLE HAVE TO BE REALLY BORED CONSIDERING THE RIDICULOUS SUBSTANCE OF YOUR EMAILS. TRY FINDING OUT WHAT THEY ARE ABOUT BEFORE YOU CRITISIZE. THEY ARE DOING THE WORK THAT LARGE CORPERATIONS HAVE REQUESTED INTERVIEWERS TO DO. THE SUBSTANCE IS WHAT IS GOING ON IN THE WORLD AS WE SPEAK. I KNOW FROM EXPERIENCE AS I HAVE TAKEN PART IN MANY LEGITMATE RESEARCH POLLS. I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO ADD THE "PEOPLE" YOU ARE CALLING STUPID ECT. HAVE TO PASS EXTENSIVE READING TESTS AS WELL AS VOCABULARY TESTING IN ORDER TO BE EMPLOYED AT BRAUN RESEARCH COULD YOU????!!!!!

Make them feel as harassed as you do. THAT is the only way pieces of crap such as this will learn. CALL AND CALL again. Their toll free number, according to the BBB is 888-527-7779

Woman called at 7 PM CST. Said my family had been chosen for a survey. Immediately asked if I was 18 or over. Did not ask if I wanted to take the survey. I said "I'll pass," started to hang up. She kept talking, asking if anyone else in the house could take the survey. I could hear phones ringing in the background like a phone bank. Google lists the number as a person's name, apparently residential, not a company. I'm not posting it here in case the person is innocent and his phone has been hijacked.

Google: "Phonebook results for 609-279-2122
