Vulcan7 is seilling YOUR private phone numbers DESPITE being on DONOTCALL list

2016-SEP: I had my home listed for sale on MLS. Never were my private mobile or home telephone numbers listed or published online. Moreover, all of my phone #s have been on the DNC DoNoCall list for 5 - 8 years. After my house sale was suspended from MLS, ALL of my private phone numbers .. home, mobile, work mobile, spouse mobile .. all began receiving solicitation from various realtors, pitching their services. I asked 5 of these callers to identify from where they obtained my PRIVATE phone# and they ALL said "Vulcan 7" (company main# 513-217-****) which is a PAID-FOR service provided to realtors. The better question is HOW did Vulcan 7 obtain my PRIVATE, UNPUBLISHED and DONOTCALL-registered phone#s .. and what gives them the right to (1) provide these numbers and (2) get paid to provide my private info?! I am OUTRAGED as my privacy has been compromised by VULCAN7.

Vulcan7 is a Real Estate Lead Generation company, based in Cincinnati OH. Other similar companies are RedX, Mojo.
3814 West Street Ste 104 Cincinnati, OH 45227 -- support@***.com -- sales@***.com
Vulcan7 primarily collects contact info (home address, mobile and home telephone).
They also denote if numbers are on the DONOTCALL LIST and pass this fact to Realtors. Realtors are clearly ignoring the DNC.

Here is a copy of VULCAN7's own privacy policy ( http://www.vulcan7.com/policies/privacy ) which is a joke in and of itself, since it boldly claims to dishonour the DNC lists. Please note that I have NEVER called them. Hence, they do not have my personal phone#s. Yet, when I did call to complain to them, I employed a prefix of *67 so as to block my number from their caller-ID services. Yet, all attempts to reach a HUMAN were rerouted to voicemail, as if this was a surprise.

"Telecommunications Privacy: Protecting the privacy of your telecommunications information is important to us. When users make phone calls to or from telecommunication services provided by us, we may track information about the name, phone number, and other information about the call. We do not share this information, unless required to do so by law. We may use this information in the aggregate to analyze trends or to improve the service.

By contacting us via telephone you are allowing us to contact you even if your phone number is on any legal DNC (do not call) lists.

Service Announcements:
On rare occasions it is necessary to send out a strictly service-related announcement. For instance, if our service is temporarily suspended for maintenance we might send users an email. Users might not be able to opt-out of these communications, although they can deactivate their account. However, these communications are not promotional in nature." < - - - THIS IS ALSO A LIE.

You have to request to be on the do not call list every year. If you requested them to be on there 5-8 years ago, you're not on the list anymore.

Not true, your registration on the DNC list does not expire - https://www.donotcall.gov/ ALERT!Someone pretending to be from the FTC is sending out fake emails telling people that their Do Not Call registration is expiring.Registrations never expire. Once you add a number to the Do Not Call Registry, you do not need to register it again.
