Public Interest Communications Inc is hired by non-profits/charities to call you. They have a list of the non-profits on their website www.pubintcom.com Go to the right hand column of their website and click onto Clients/Markets We Serve. A partial list of the non-profits will come up. If you support or have ever supported any of those non-profits then email the non-profit telling them you are dropping monetary support due to the harassment by Public Interest Communications caused by that non-profit giving Public Interest Communications your personal information. Tell them that the tactics Pub.Int.Comm. uses is a reflection of the non-profit and request to be removed from all their mailist and email lists and to not give, lease or rent your personal information to any more third party companies. Public Interest Comm also has a section in their website, click onto

I have received multiple daily calls. Finally answered and told the person not to call anymore. She then tried to tell me that she had something to tell me, I hung up suspecting that she just wanted to start her telemarketing script.

Other posts here suggest calling back and they were offered a chance to get off the call list. When I just tried calling all I got was that the number is no longer in service, or at least not accepting calls somehow. Went to their site and found pubintcom.com It presents itself as a way to stop them calling you, but then requires: name, address, and email. Does that mean that they won't call just deluge your inbox and mailbox in the same harassing way? I don't know but I don't want to find out either.

I have received calls daily from Pub Interest. If, I answer the call no one talks and they hang up..If call is not picked up, no message is left.

January 23rd, 2012 johnson CA

They call every single day once or twzice a day. How can it be stopped?

SUCCESS - I have not recieved another phone call from this number after faxing cease and desist demand!!!!! Was just written on plain paper in magic marker - do not call this number (listed my number) again - on the national do not call list - will file with State Attoney General's office if I received one more call. That was on July 20 - normally 3-4 calls a day - not a single call since 7/20/2010.

Here's the fax number I used:Fax: 412.622.7374

I don't answer this phone but an answering machine is hooked up to the number. These people call 3 times a day for weeks and leave a short message that is nothing but dead air, but the machine records it. In one week I got 18 new messages from these people, which weren't messages at all. If anyone knows how to stop this annoying robo-call short of contacting the authorities I'd love to hear it.

they keep calling and nobody is ever on the line. sometimes i can hear breathing, but that is all

CALLER LEAVES NO MESSAGE ON ANSWER MACHINE, THEREFORE, CALLER IS SOMEONE WITH WHOM NOBODY WANTS TO TALK.

October 3rd, 2009 Dave CA

Daily calls up to 3 times per day. If I use my phone's blocking feature, they change the number they use to call.

August 12th, 2009 anonymous NJ

This outfit represents many clients. I just got a call from this number for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), whom I've supported in the past.

To those who report "hangup" - This is a "robo caller." When you first answer the other end is on hold; when they see you've picked up, then they pick up (if they aren't busy talking to someone else.) Annoying, ain't it!

July 30th, 2009 Kathy WI

I get calls at least twice a day from this number, with the name Pub Interest Com above the number on my caller ID. I never answer. About once a week a recorded message is left: "This is a courtesy call from PIC"

July 23rd, 2009 Bev

This number calls at least 2-3 times every day (along with Pub Interest CO). I never answer, except this evening I picked up and just said into the receiver "not interested", and didn't hang up. Don't know if it helped, but it felt good.

This number called my house (I live with my parents) and asked for me by name. I am no longer a minor, but I would really like to know how they got my name and what they want. They told my sister they would 'call back later', but they usually only call when I am at work.

I've been getting calls 2 or 3 times a day for weeks. If I don't pick up they don't leave a message. If I do pick up there is no one there - there's no way of telling them to stop calling. I don't what the point of their calling is though since they don't talk when you pick up. how can I stop these calls??????????? I am on the do not call list.

May 29th, 2009 allie CA

this number comes up out of area but, they are calling once or twice a day for weeks now.

Why can't we find a way to stop these people? They call for weeks on end at all times of the day and night and never leave a message.

May 7th, 2009 Fed up IL

Same situation as everyone else! This is just one of several unsolicited marketing calls that I get daily or at least weekly from the same number. I am really pissed that the do-not-call list doesn't protect us. From now on, if a business or website tries to pry personal info from me, I will stop patronizing them. Online, I will look for another website that respects my privacy and doesn't require me to enter my personal data. What I especially hate is when you are enjoying some peace and quiet when the phone rings and you run to see who is calling because it might be a family member but it turns out to be a telemarketer. Those are unnecessary disruptions and it is a burden to screen my calls like this.

April 14th, 2009 Hk PA

Call every day, morning 8:30 am and 8:30 pm evening. Never leave a message. It's getting ridiculous! I would answer if I had a clue on what this was about but never a message left. This number should be disconnected!

Received many calls - no messages left. I called the number suggested below (by Nancy) and after 4 or 5 rings, you can leave a message asking them to remove your telephone number from their calling list. Sure hope it works!
That number is: (412)622-7387

February 21st, 2009 soddy GA

called our phone every day for a week. we answered, and they asked for our son by name. told them he was not here (he really wasn't). they replied "oh my. i'll check later", and hung up. went to the website for these folks, reviewed the list of clients, and see the metropolitan opera is one of their clients. our son bought tickets to the met about a month ago, so that must be the connection. if they call back, we'll ask that they no longer call this number. more importantly, we'll tell our son to stop giving out the home number to organizations.

Frequent calls from this number.I don't answer.They are relentless. They have been calling for months. Why?
Why won't they stop since no one answers and apparently doesn't want to talk to them.

12/18/2008 12:50pm couldnt leave a message if they wanted to, because 646-367-3289 played music untill the machine was full (preventing a message about a household memeber having car problems - a 83 year old lady had to take taxi home rather than get picked up and car fixed).

November 5th, 2008 Paul

I too, receive several calls from this number as well. I am not one to just sit here and complain about something that really bothers me without taking action. I logged onto their website to find out a little more about them as well as a little more about their SOURCE of INCOME:

www.pubintcom.com

Sure enough, WETA is one of their clients. My wife and I used to be big doners to WETA until they changed their format. I called WETA about everything that was happening, i.e., PIC's annoying autodialing machines that call without leaving messages several times a week aas well as their abusive practices. WETA did not deny that they hire PIC for fundraising, etc. I further explained that PIC is hurting WETA financially with their abusive telemarketing practices.

WETA apologized for the endless calls and assured me that my number would be removed from their telemarketing list. They also appeared very concerned about PIC's telemarketing practices as well. If there is a company on the client list of the aforementioned website that you used to support or currently support, then I beseech you to contact that non-profit organization an do the same as I. Complaining without taking action will only expend energy without results...

Good luck!

I HAVE BEEN GETTING SEVERAL CALLS A DAY AT DIFFERENT TIMES OF THE DAY FROM THIS NUMBER. THEY HAVE BEEN CALLING FOR MONTHS. MY CALLER ID REGISTERS THEM AS PUB INTEREST CM. I NEVER PICK UP THE PHONE AND THEY DON'T LEAVE A MESSAGE.

July 14th, 2008 Anonymous PA

What amazes me is that you people will go through the time and effort of posting these comments but won't take two seconds to speak to a representative . I spoke to some one a few days ago who helped me a lot. This is a company that raises money for non profit organizations that all of you must have supported at some time in your life. Here's what you do A. Listen to where the person is calling from (Like I stated it's an organization you've given money to) B. Take the call or ask to be removed from the call list (trust me when you're nicer it's quicker) C. Hang up. Also, I was told that new equipment is on the way so that should help with the hanging up problem. And I was also told that IF YOU DON'T PICK UP YOU'LL CONTINUE TO GET CALLED! Believe it or not. Who knew?

July 9th, 2008 Nancy WY

Public Interest Communications phone number is 703-847-8300. This is the number to call to speak to someone in person. Also if you call back the 412-622-7387 number you will be able to leave a message that you want to be put on their do-not-call list. Hope this helps.

May 5th, 2008 pmquade MD

wish they would'nt call me anymore, if the can't respond when I answer why do they bother calling what a bunch of jerk's.

April 25th, 2008 KK CA

Just got a call from 412-622-7387. Didn't answer, no message.

April 25th, 2008 Joelle MA

Keep in mind just because you are on a state or nation wide Do Not Call List, groups like charity and political groups are exempt from this list because they are not considered telemarketers. However, with a charity that outsources their donation solicitation calls to this company (and others), I would recommend you make a complaint with the National Do Not Call Registry www.donotcall.gov and contact the charities you have donated to in the past and ask them to be put on their Do Not Call list and tell them why (because of this company they chose to do business with to solicit donations).

April 10th, 2008 Ildiko PA

No message left. Just on my caller ID

April 4th, 2008 Kelly GA

I just called back the number and the recording says that you can request for your number to be removed from their calling list. Let's see if this helps any.

They have called me at least once a day for the last few weeks. It is very annoying. The caller ID says Pub Interest CM at 412-622-7387.

There have been several phone calls a day from this number for the past serveral weeks. It is getting rather annoying, the calls come at all times during the night and day. I do not answer since I do not recognize the number and they do not leave a message. I am on the State and National No-Call List, how can I keep companies/people like this from calling?

March 20th, 2008 A.S.

It's Public Interest Communications - www.pubintcom.com They are a telemarketing firm which represents nonprofit organizations and other political organizations, with offices in Pittsburgh, PA, Falls Church, VA, Salt Lake City, UT. Nonprofit/political/survey organizations are not subject to the "Do Not Call" registry, so it's likely they are not breaking any laws by calling you. However, if you don't want them to call you on behalf of whatever organization they're calling for, you'll have to answer the phone and tell them that. Here is the info from the FCC Do Not Call site: "Political solicitations are not covered by the TSR at all, since they are not included in its definition of

Charlotte, NC - They have called my phone several times in the past week. At first on my home phone, leaving a message that was interrupted with signals of some sort and impossible to understand. Then I received two calls on my cell phone. No message on that phone. Both numbers are registered on do not call list, so they are ignoring that. What a nuisance!

January 18th, 2008 Mike DE

This phone number has called us over 40 times! How do I make them stop? They bother us at the worst possible times and it is really, really frustrating!

have called three times asking to speak with my 15 year old son. Tonight when they called I told them that he's too young to be speaking with telemarkers and they ARGUED with me that he wasn't. I hung up. I'm going to take the advice from "Fight Back" posted below and contact them directly to stop calling my son!

December 4th, 2007 Kathryn GA

This group has called 4 times today! I answered once and got a voice recording that said a representative wanted to talk with me but due to call volume . . .and I hung up the phone. I will be reporting them to the no call list next.

November 10th, 2007 nootkabear

After pulling up the website and looking at the "clients" listed, I see that an organization was most probably trying to raise funds. In the past, I have given to WWF, Defenders of Wildlife, etc. I suppose that is how my number was acquired. They did not leave a message. If people wanting to raise funds legitimately want to contact someone, they can do it by mail or email.

August 12th, 2007 Linn Carpenter NJ

They have called my house every night for the past two months. Every time I see them on my caller ID, I would pick up the phone and hang it up. That didn't stop them. Last night they called, and I picked up the phone and screamed into the phone "Don't call my house again!" Then I decided to call their number which was on my caller ID. I got a voice mail message saying who they were and if I wanted to be taken off their calling list, leave my phone number and let them know. I really let them have it. I said I am on the "Do Not Call" registry, and I gave them my phone number telling them that I was sick of them calling my house every night for over two months, and if I got another call from them, I would report them to the phone company, the Better Business Bureau and the police department (of course I know the police can't do anything but I wanted to scare them a bit). Tonight was the first night I did not receive a call from them. You might want to call their number and try the same thing. Make sure you sound angry because I literally screamed into the phone. Let them know you will take action against them.

July 31st, 2007 Cathy DE

I get called just about every day by this number. I don't pick up but it is annoying just the same. The caller ID identifies it as "Pub Interest CM". I am on the DO NOT CALL list.

Mine was a particularly creepy phone call... All I heard was a low and stiffled chuckle and then they hung up...

That number just called but thanks to whocalled.us the call didn't go through as the number is listed.

July 13th, 2007 s carter WY

Answered a call from this number yesterday, told the person to stop calling. Got another call this evening, told them again to stop calling. I now get more calls from that number than any other nuisance calls.

July 12th, 2007 Chloe NY

I've been getting calls from this number every other day for the past 2 weeks and at odd hours. The person I spoke to said she was calling on behalf of Met Opera (of which I've been a patron in the past and is one of the clients on the list) in their efforts to raise funds. I told her I wasn't interested, she was understanding, and we hung up. Hopefully I won't be getting any more calls after this.

July 11th, 2007 Debbie Dugan CA

My voicemail recorded a call. It started with a pre-recorded message and part way through a live lady started talking and asked for me specifically. When she realized she got voicemail/answering machine she said "great" and hung up. I don't think she knew she was being recorded.

July 10th, 2007 CP NY

SOLUTION:
Go to their client list page:
www.pubintcom.com

Figure out whose list you're on then email the org that outsourced them. Soon they'll have no clients = no money = no business.

July 8th, 2007 Kate UT

They've called me twice in the last several days. They called last week as well---I didn't pick up but did try to return the call a few minutes later, in hopes of identifying the caller. I heard a machine recording but wasn't able to decipher it.

Got several unsolicited calls from this number. When I answer with a company name they hang up. This is clearly a spam caller. Lately I'm answering junk calls to tell them to remove me from their call list. Works with some.

May 20th, 2007 Larry NY

Pub Interest called on 5/17/07 5/18/07. Both times they hung up and left no message.

May 6th, 2007 Bill Samuel

A further note. Go to their Web site at www.pubintcom.com They have a list of their clients. See which ones you support, and write each one to say you will not support them any more, and explain why.

Non-profits have to be held accountable for the methods they use.

May 6th, 2007 Bill Samuel

This outfit has been harassing us with calls every day, sometimes several times a day. They never leave a message, and our voice mail says specifically it if is a solicitor not to call back.

I have filed multiple complaints with the Do Not Call Registry. I encourage everyone to do this. They may at least claim to be calling for nonprofits, but if they themselves are a for-profit firm, I believe they are covered.

I also have emailed Ken.

People like this should be behind bars.

April 26th, 2007 ChuckZ

There are many companies that use a random phone number (that's how they get your unlisted number) and automatic dialer to make these calls. They mask themselves as a survey company to try and get around the Government rules, but will more than likely try to sell you something in the end. When you pick up the phone, it may go to a recorded message asking questions where you hit a key on your phone for the answers. When you're done with the survey, it rolls over to a telemarketer, if one is available. The calling company may dial 100 numbers and have about 10 folks to answer the calls. That's why you may get a hang-up because no one is available to take your call. They play the odds that 1 in 10 folks will get through the survey and want to go on with the call.

The following is taken from the "Do-not-call" information page: "If the call is really for the sole purpose of conducting a survey, it is not covered. Only telemarketing calls are covered — that is, calls that solicit sales of goods or services. Callers purporting to take a survey, but also offering to sell goods or services, must comply with the National Do Not Call Registry."

So if you receive a call from this type of company, file a report with the FCC at the following web site in hopes of putting these crooks out of business:

This number 412-622-7387 has called several times in the last few weeks. Most of the time we don't answer. They hang up on the machine. We answered a couple times and they just hung up on us too. What is this Public Interest Communications anyway? They must not want anything important if they just hang up on everyone or don't even know what to say when they don't.

Received a call on my cell at 8:23 PM. First time I'd seen this number, but I have family in PA, so I answered. A man said "Hello. You have just missed one of our representatives," then said something about calling on behalf of Kicks? Interesting to see all these other posts.

December 8th, 2006 A Real Pain NY

They call 2-3 times a day, almost every day and night, and leave no message. They are a real pain especially when you want to go to bed early for work.

I've gotten calls for the past two months (like several a week) from 412-622-7387. I've picked up twice and just hear a click, so I can't even say anything to anyone.

December 4th, 2006 Lucia CA

I have been receiving calls from this number for about 2 months. They never leave a message. Today I answered to tell them to stop but they hung up.

December 2nd, 2006 Kirsten NY

I received calls with no answers from them on 12/2/06 and 11/30/06. I registered complaints with the National Do Not Call Registry. I see from their web site they are a telemarketing group for non-profits though, so I doubt it's the last time I'll hear from them on behalf of their clients.

They have called every for the past month, sometimes a few times a day. They are telemarketers.

I have been getting calls from this number for at least the last two weeks. I have not answered the phone. They call many times per day. One of the days, a recording came on and then a person spoke and said hello and then they hung up. This was all recorded in my voice mail.

These guys tortured me, interesting given the fact that they were calling on behalf of Amnesty International. After they called me 15 times and I had first asked them to stop, then ignored them, and finally asked them to "stop the f*** calling me" it continues. Arrrrgh.

Twice a day for the last week. I called and left a message asking them to remove me. Still getting calls.

Called at 10:22AM on 10/19/06. Didn't answe...said the call was from PA. Didn't leave a voicemail. Hope this doesn't because a repeating pattern like it seems to have with others who have posted here.

I get almost daily calls from this number, most recently 9/10 in the later afternoon. Read out on my caller ID is PUB INTEREST CM. I have answered a couple of times, intending to tell them to stop calling, but there is never anyone on the other end. They never leave a message either.

August 31st, 2006 Joe B. CA

I received a call from this number today as well. As mentioned elsewhere, lame auto message followed by a telemarketer saying hello, hello.

The company name is Public Interest Communications, Inc. They are a telemarketing firm, working with non-profits (and probably others). A quick Google search turned up the company's web site:
