Call 800-864-8601 to stop the calls. Also go into SunTrust Banks and demand that they stop this. Perhaps if enough customers will complain they will stop.

when you call their number it does state they are a company called Maritz Research and they also say they where they are not a telemarketer company they do not fall into the do not call registry, but if you wish to be removed from their call list you need to call 1-800.864.8601

Claims to be survey by Enterprise Car Rental.
Per the instructions, call 800-864-8601 to add your number to their company do-not-call list. My caller ID showed "Enterprise" -- I did not rent from Enterprise, but only called locally for information last week. Even though they are not technically violating the Do Not Call laws, I am surprised that a mere inquiry would result in a follow-up call like this.

Rec'd call from this number, said they were a research firm and had every right to call even if you were registered on the National do not call list, which I am. Provided the number 800-864-8601 to be placed on "their" do not call list. Which I did.
I also filed a complaint on that number also. I should not have to be put on "their" do not call list when I'm registered on the National do not call list. I hate these kinds of call..........

I received a call from this number. I returned the call because I am registered for "do not call". They
do not have to comply because they are registered as marketing vs. Telemarketers however they
provided a number 1 800-864-8601, that you can call to register for their org to place you
on their do not call list. I just did it and I hope it works.

Claiming they are not a telemarketing but a research, to gather information on their company's progress. If that is not telemarketing what is? You can call and remove your number by calling 1-800-864-8601 and leaving your number with companies do not call list.

I called the number back and it says it's maritz Research, they do survey's for products and companies. they also state on the recording, even if you have your number added on the DO NOT CALL LIST, they are not telemarketers so this does NOT apply to them and they are not violating any laws. they also provide a number to call if you want to be added to their do not call list 800-864-8601 and to leave your number with the automated system.
companies like this, always have to find their way around the laws.

Maritz Research is the company, and they are a survey company, so they allegedly are not required to honor the do-not-call registry. They claim you can be put on their company do-not-call list by calling this number and giving your phone number to them.

Someone tried to call me from 202-870-5900 and did not leave a message. I called them back and got a recording that stated since this is a marketing research company the do not call list does not apply to them. The recording advised me to call 800-864-8601 and leave my phone number if I wanted to be added to their do not call list which I did. Was advised it will take up to three days to get my number excluded from their system.

Caller ID just displayed "571-431-1844" - left no message but a return call identified the number as Merits Research - a market research data collection company- They indicated that they are exempt from the DNC list, as they are not a tellamarketing firm, but they DO have their own dont call list that you can add your number to by calling 800-864-8601.

Merrit Research!! You can call their 800 number to be taken off their call list. Simply call 1-800-864-8601 and enter your phone number. They shouldn't bother you any more after that.

Called my cell at 8:30pm Sun night. I did not recognize and did not answer, they did not leave a message. I returned the call and got message it was "Merits Research, a Mkt research company asking opinions, not a telemarketing company and therefore not subject to national DNCL". I rented from Enterprise in past week. Message said I could call 1-800-864-8601 and leave my phone number on their automated system to be added to their own Do Not Call List. I did this and left my number as they said. They said allow 3 days to take effect. Sounded legitimate to me. I was very happy with my experience with Enterprise, but not too happy about call on my cell, and especially on a Sunday night.

I keep getting this company Maritz Research calling me 3 times a day. I finally called them back and on the automated it says that they are research company calling to get your opinion on products however, it does says since they are not a telemarketing they can calls you even tho you are register on the the donotcall.gov. But, they do have an Do Not Call 800-864-8601 stating to register your number and they will stop calling you it can take up to 3 days. We will see.

I had the same experience as Alfred. Rented a car from Enterprise last week, and then got a call from this number. I took Alfred's tip and called 1-800-864-8601 to have my number removed from the list by their automated system. Took 30 seconds. Thanks for the tip, Alfred.

I saw 434-878-9941on my call ID and called back. They are a market research company to ask your opinion on products and services. I rented a car from Enterprise this week too. Call 1-800-864-8601 and leave your number with the automated system and they will not call back.

I had my number removed from their calling list. Dial 800-864-8601. This is an automated line that will remove you from their calling list. Maritz is a research company located in St. Louis, MO which is where I live. It is not a debt collector calling.

I did not rent from Enterprise. But I did rent from Budget and Naional car last week. I used the 800 number 1-800-864-8601 to remove my name. They are skirting the law somehow through these rental agreements or something else they are using.

My call was from Maritz Research, a legit survey company. Call 800-864-8601 to get on their do not call. However, if they are calling for a third party who you have voluntary business with (from Bank of America to Pizza Hut), the do not call registry does not apply, but they will stop if you tell them.

These people have called a couple of times a day for the past 2 weeks. I just called them back and got a recording. The recording provides you with a phone number to call to request to be removed from their call list. It is: 800-864-8601. It takes under a minute and it is a recording. The recording states that it can take up to 3 days for the "do not call" to take effect. We'll see!

I called back the # && the REC ids as MARITZ RESEARCH, it said they contact people to ask their opionions about products and services to better assist their clients.

If you don't want anymore calls you can call 1-800-864-8601 to be put on the DO NOT CALL COMPANY LIST. You just punch your number in when promted to && it will take about 3 bussiness days for the calls to stop.

Maritz Research or Missouri Call on your Caller ID is a marketing research company that surveys customers of Bank of America, Enterprise car rental, American Express and other major companies that you do business with to survey your customer satisfaction with that company. They are exempt from the Do Not Call list. TO STOP THEM FROM CALLING YOUR NUMBER DIAL: 800-864-8601 TO BE PUT ON THEIR DO NOT CALL LIST. It is an automated number, so you will not have to speak to anyone, just put in the phone number that they keep calling you on and in 3 days you will be on their Do Not Call List. They are annoying, even calling late at night (8-9pm) and never leave a message. If you are customers of any of the above companies then that's how they got your number. They want to do a survey on customer satisfaction with you. They are NOT a collection agency, they are a marketing research company. 800-864-8601 does work in stopping them from calling you.
Do Not Call

Casey is right. Just received a call to my cell. It was Maritz Research. I called the number back and got a recording. Here is the skinny: They do surveys for companies like BofA. Unfortunately it is well within BofA's (or any of Maritz's customers) to call. Since they are not a telemarketing or sales firm, they are not restricted by federal or state do not call lists.

They gave a number to be removed from their call lists (i.e. added to the Maritz do not call list). It is 800-864.8601. It is automated so you don't have to talk to anyone. Just put in the number they called. I hope that helps.

Their claim to be exempted by the Do Not Call List is a lie. supposedly you can call 1-800-864-8601 to get off their list. We'll see if they bother to honour it.
