Complaint: They called me and said they were doing a study from Columbia University about how New Yorkers are doing in the recession. They said they would give $15 to participate. I told them they called me about this last week and I declined and that I want to be taken off the list. After the first call, I looked into the number and it seems like a scam. She asked why and I told her that I don't give out personal information. She offered to give information that shows they're valid. I said, I'd rather just opt out. That was the end of it for now but I suspect they will keep calling and try to get even more personal information from me so that they can possibly steal identity.
