Sep, 2016 – on MLS I listed my home for sale. My home telephone or private mobile numbers were never published or listed online. Most importantly, all these phone numbers were on Do-No-Call for last five to eight years.
Once the sale of my home was suspended from that list on MLS, on all of my numbers, I started to receive solicitation from different realtors. They pitched about their services during those calls. I decided to ask from these realtors in order to know from where they used to operate and got my private numbers. All of them have mentioned that they got those numbers from Vulcan 7. It was a paid-for service used by most of the realtors.
Now the question is raised that how Vulcan 7 got my private numbers which were listed under DoNotCall or Unpublished category? And what sort of right they obtain to provide such numbers or private info to third parties? I strongly feel that my privacy is compromised and I feel very outraged due to such situation which was created by Vulcan 7.
