Electrical Agent Phone Scam Alert! - RF Cafe Forums
Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.
Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

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.
