Electrical Agent Phone Scam Alert! - RF Cafe Forums

The original RF Cafe Forums were shut down in late 2012 due to maintenance issues - primarily having to spend time purging garbage posts from the board. At some point I might start the RF Cafe Forums again if the phpBB software gets better at filtering spam.

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

Greetings:

I have received multiple annoying, unsolicited recorded phone messages today from a job site called Electrical Agent. After the third one in a few hours, I filed a
complaint with the FCC. I encourage you to file FCC Form 1088, too.

Yes, my phone number is listed in the federal Do Not Call list.

I am utterly sick of these headhunter websites and agencies intruding on the privacy of people. They pass resumes and personal information around without regard for
clearly printed copyright notices and warnings against distribution. They employ companies who send web bots out to download every page on websites in search of resumes
to steal, and then charge other companies for the information that they stole.

If there is a lawyer out there in the audience (maybe a patent lawyer), is there any kind of massive class action lawsuit that could be mounted to put these scumbags out
of business? This has been going on for a long time, but the Internet has really provided a fertile hunting ground for unscrupulous recruiters.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
