    Hi I am senior consultant with over 10 years of independent consulting
    experience under my belt. This is something I never experienced
    before and I am curious to know if anyone else had similar experiences
    with this firm as I have (I did a google search and already found a
    few bad reviews). For the past few months, I've been getting calls
    from a certain recruiter from an agency called Oxford corporation
    ( To start off with, she always calls me on an
    Unknown number so I'll pick up the phone, which is very annoying!
    Each time she calls me, I've found that she is only trying to solicit
    information from me on who I can refer to her, and worse, try to get
    full info on the F/T guys that I am working with currently (this
    ranges from Jr. developers to even the Sr. mangers). I am finding
    this very unethical and extremely annoying, and I am getting close to
    a point in telling her I want to have nothing to do with her company
    and have them remove me off their data base! Can someone tell me if is
    even possible? And is there a place where I can lodge a complain
    aginst them?

    You are getting "close" to telling her this? For crying out loud Tim, just
    TELL her that you do not wish to be bothered again. At least in the US, they
    must abide by such a request by law. Better yet, if you are in the US, put
    your number on the national "do not call" registry. It's quite effective at
    stopping telephone solicitors.

    Effective, but only somewhat effective.

    Was almost 100% effective for me. Used to get 3-4 calls per day, now I
    rarely get more than a couple per month. The effect was dramatic.
