Direct Buy illegal solicitation
Josh 2004 Happy
Things to know:
* It is against federal regulations to telemarket to cellphones. The FCC complaint form is 1088 and is available online at http://www.fcc.gov/complaints
* The FTC do not call registry submissions no longer expire. The complaint form is available online at https://complaints.donotcall.gov/

Direct Buy is extending "invitations" to their grand opening. They use high pressure sales tactics to obtain commitments to sign up for a meeting. It seems VERY similar to timeshare sales. The callcenter sounds Malaysian, or Indonesian, but I'm not sure which. Others claim is sounds like Mumbai. One of the callcenter relay stations is 971-208-9936 out of Salem, Oregon. Everything in 971-208-99xx is telemarketing. They also use 214-269-7432, among others, and other businesses use the same callcenter, including time-shares and international pharmacies.

Some of the other reports for this callcenter imply that maybe they are phishing for information about who owns and holds the phone number.
