Comment on calls from 541-868-1309

226 Comments

November 28th, 2009 VD Employee OR

Venture Data is a Telesurvey company, based out of SLC, we have stations in Oregon (where I am) and Washington (which, I believe shut down, actually). When we call you, we usually say we're from MORI Research (especially in the DC greater area when doing stupid surveys about the Washington Post) or Call Research. Why? Not sure, I'm pretty new to the job. Our surveys are political. We don't sell anything, just ask you a bunch of questions that may seem stupid, awkward, sometimes condescending annnddd pretty push-polly.

1. Why do we call so late? Good question! Because SLC doesn't think. We just do our jobs and pray that you people will answer because the more surveys we get, the sooner we get to go home and not call people so late. It sucks, I understand but don't yell at the dialers.

2. Are you picking up the phone but nobody seems to be on the line? Our headsets are not the greatest quality. We have feedback and tons of lag-time. It's stupid. Tell SLC to give us better equipment.

3. On the National DNC list? That's generally only telemarketers. We're not selling a tangible item so we don't count. You have two ways of dealing with this. Answer 1: Call your phone provider and ask about their privacy block services. Answer 2: If you're nice to the dialer, you can ask to be put on our own personal DNC list. We'll explain to you that it'll only remove you from Venture Data and not any other survey company but that's one less, right?

4. If it were illegal to call you so late, we wouldn't be open until 9 or 10 p.m. We're a West Coast company. If someone dials you really late, ask for Salt Lake's address (or google it, it's easily available) and we'll give it to you. Again, don't yell at us. We're making minimum wage. We don't decide the hours. We don't make the rules. We're just doing our job.

5. We don't leave messages on your machine because we can't ask questions and get answers. We're looking for people, age 18+, who are registered to vote. It'd be pointless to leave a message. When we reach a machine, we dial a certain code and your number is recycled to call back again later. Same is said for people who politely refuse to take the survey. This part is completely random. Sometimes you won't hear from us for a long time, other days the machine will spit out your number like crazy. I once dialed a woman twice in a row. It was insane! The blame for this is on multiple levels. One, it's just a machine. Two, population to quota ratio.

6. "THEY CALL ME ON SUNDAY!!" Again. Doing our JOB! We all can't pick and chose our shifts. And some people don't do the whole church/sabbath thing. Crazy, I know, but it's true.

7. Calls about Auto-body work! Yes! We're also paid by Allstate to call you for a 3 minute survey to ask about your service and what you thought about your repairs. This is a special survey which requires training to conduct. It's just follow up. Even non-profits do it. A lot of stores do it nowadays as well.

8. Getting asshole dialers? You're number is usually recycled unless you state to be removed or start screaming (please don't do this one) so we can't help it if you say "not now" or just hang up. We're monitored and SLC will have a field day if we're burning their sample. However, if someone is being a dick just to be a dick, then give SLC a call. They'll figure out who did it.

9. Sometimes we ask to speak with the youngest male/female in the household (at least 18, gotta be voting age!) because the surveys are split into demographics based on age and gender. We have to get equal representation and, generally, women and people born before 1950 are far more willing to take surveys. We start asking to talk to certain people because our bosses and computers tell us that we're meeting quota on said demographic.

10. Voting registration cards? If that were the case, we wouldn't be asking when we called and calling so many unregistered numbers. It's purely randomly generated. Your information hasn't been bought. Relax.

11. Again, listen to the other employees who are telling you what to do. You want them to stop calling you? Pick up and say "No thanks, please take me off your calling list." SIMPLE. Your number won't be recycled. Swearing will only have pissed of dialers call you again. Being a dick to someone doing their job isn't going to make them want to cooperate. It applies to other jobs, too. D-bag customer? Not going to help you find what you're looking for until you drop that attitude.

12. What to know who is paying for the survey we call you for? We dialers don't know. Our bosses withhold that to keep us from biasing the survey. Sometimes it seems obvious but then I found some politicians bash themselves because they want to see how easily swayed you are. There are two states that have laws regarding release of survey information. We're told before the dialing starts and tell you either before, after, or upon request. If we say we don't know, you're not that qualifying state. However, if you ask for SLC's address, they can tell you.

13. Sometimes we'll dial your FAX machine or modem or whatever else. Accident. Computer randomly generates numbers and we push in codes so it won't happen again.

14. We're not a billing company. We never EVER call to tell you that you owe to such-and-such. They have their own reps for that.

Seriously. The more nice you kids are and the more you cooperate, the sooner we can fill our quota and go home. Or to the bar to forget that everyone hates us more than we hate ourselves.

These people called my home at 10:30 pm! Who does that? They said they were a research company talking to people about their opinions on global warming; can they not ask these questions at a descent hour? Are they going to come to my house and get my kids settled back into bed? I don't think so. Aren't there laws against these companies calling after 9 pm? Idiots!

May 23rd, 2008 Russ ME

Calls late at night and no one on line!

February 17th, 2008 blah blah OH

Wow, you're remarkably rude the caller and they're rude back? Go figure.

Also, as someone stated before, if you just ask politely to be removed from the call list, it will be done. Slamming the phone down doesn't get you removed. Screaming at the top of your lungs about how this is illegal and you're going to sue sure is hell isn't going to get you removed, since it's such obvious bullshit. You're just going be the joke of the day at the company. I don't understand why you all seem to think that being a jackass is going to solve your problem. Just SAY that you're not interested, don't give some phoney, jaded excuse about how you're "so busy" right now, or "just heading out the door." You'll just get a call back later. Is that so hard?

Remember that the people calling you have a job to do. Don't tell them to "get a real job" or "get a life." I hate this job more than anything, but you know what? I'm in college, I need to pay my bills, and this is the only job I can find right now that will accommodate my class schedule. So unless you're going to offer me a job with flexible hours that pays above minimum wage, I don't really care what you have to say. I'm just going to hang up on me because I don't feel like staying on the line while you verbally abuse me.

These bastards call me 3-5 times a day and even on Sunday.

Busy signal on returning call.

March 20th, 2007 Ken AL

Called at 5:15PM. I didn't recognize the name or number on my caller ID, so I let the answering machine pick it up. They hung up instead.

I noticed someone said Venture Data3 did once ask about someone's insurance claim for auto body work, which I recently had done as well, so that could have been why they called. Never had a call from them before.

March 18th, 2007 Dave

They can go to hell !

March 13th, 2007 vicki CA

March 4th, 2007 doesnt matter

I called "Barney, Frank
frankb@VENTUREDATA.COM
5353 S. 960 East Suite 100
Salt Lake City, UT 84117
US
Phone: 801-685-8210
Fax: 801-685-8188
"

And I got an answer right away. He said my phone number came from either a randomly generated list of numbers in a specific area code or from voter registration records that were purchased.

Um...wtf...companies can buy voter registration records???

The call I got was about an area that my cell number does not belong, so i assume it was from registering to vote.

February 20th, 2007 Bob

I got a phone call from 541-868-1309 and it scared me because my fiance has a 541 number..so who ever this is needs to stop...
Thanks

February 6th, 2007 REF

Mr. 5418681309 and the datians, DON"T YOU DARE call these people idiots. YOU are the ones bothering THEM. It's kindergarten simple yet seemingly beyond your grasp. Johnnysmith has it RIGHT and so does everyone else. You think we are all idiots and that's why you want to ask us a few questions because you really need to survey US IDIOTS.
How can you live with yourselves?

January 30th, 2007 grace

Im in the 323 area code and I am not answering this 541 at 5:05 pm

January 28th, 2007 johnnysmith KY

called on a sunday afternoon. I requested they take our # off of their list. They said they couldn't even though I was on the fcc.gov no-call list because they were not selling anything. I went to thei homepage and called the 800 number for bids and estimates and requested they not call back. The thing is, they are selling something, information they collect from me to their clients. How does this not count as commerce? I hate people calling me who are not supposed to

January 25th, 2007 Grant

541-868-1309
Has been calling my house every day for 2 weeks. I never answer, ad there is never a message on answering machine. This is getting ridiculous.

January 16th, 2007 Christina MN

I've received several of these calls from both this Eugene, OR and another from Spokane, WA. Both are calls froom Venture Data. I never answer my telephone, no messages left, but the constant ringing is beginning to be a bit irritating.

January 11th, 2007 Dave AZ

Received numorous calls from VENTURE DATA3 the latest on at 1745 hrs 8Jan.
Curiously, despite seeing the number on caller ID numorous times, I can only find it listed in Caller ID once. And we have several phones.
We have never answered the call.

December 17th, 2006 5418681309 OR

If you people want the Venture Datians to quit calling, pick up your damn phone and tell us verbally to please stop calling! The do not call list DOES NOT APPLY TO THIS COMPANY! All these people are doing is their JOB! The number will be pulled from the computer system when you say DONT CALL! Idiots

December 16th, 2006 Audra SD

Have called 4 times. No voice mail.

December 15th, 2006 Jeremy

This is the first time they've called. I answered and after a very long pause a woman said hello. I said, "Thank you for calling Pizza Hut Wing Street, will this be for delivery or carryout?" She hung up, and no I'm not at Pizza Hut.

December 14th, 2006 JR VA

Called several times, but no one answers. When I try to call back, all I receive is a busy signal.
Obviously a fraud.

December 10th, 2006 Linda

I got 2 calls from VentureData3 today, Saturday. I always let my answering machine screen my calls. They don't leave a message. From my research, it looks like this company does marketing/research for others.

December 4th, 2006 Mary FL

They are calling like crazy. Its about 4 times a day for the last week. they start early inthe morning. no messgage and noboody there.

December 3rd, 2006 Walt

November 22nd, 2006 Josh KY

Intesting, just received a call on my cell phone, but no message left. I noticed the comment above regarding a body shop visit though an insurance company. I'm curious because my car was just repaired. insurance company is a large national company that starts with "A"

November 19th, 2006 max

Have started receiving calls, four so far. They do not leave a message. After reading comment from VD4EVER explaining that they will only go away if we tell them to, I will take that advice. I can somewhat understand political polls being exempt from the Do Not Call List; but elections are over. These other polls should not be exempt.These are personal matters.

November 19th, 2006 Fred

This number has called 10 times in the last 2 days. Did not answer and they did not leave a message. Always call at meal times.

November 19th, 2006 Bre

These idiots have called my home several times all different times , I do not answer theyre calls , and they have never left a message on my answering machine , but I fixed em today , put my call alert on which says " the caller you are calling does not know you & therefore is not accepting your call " and disconnected their call they haven't called back since ! too bad cause now I'm having fun annoying them ! by the way you can also call your local telephone company and report to them the harrassing calls and they can block them from calling you

November 18th, 2006 Tom CO

Called about 8 times in the last 5 days...I never answer the call.

Venture Date3 called twice today... I didn't answer and they don't leave a msg. As most of the other posts suggest political polling, what are they up to after election day???

November 16th, 2006 Debra NJ

Very annoying. They even called in the middle of the night! Received about 5 calls from them. I do not pick up calls that I do not recognize.

November 6th, 2006 Carla Borland MO

This company calls constantly! We thought by not answering the call they would give up, not them. I quess they became frustrated because a VERY CRUDE message was left on my machine. I have saved the message and I am filing a complaint also contacting the FCC. What a shame, people at home minding their own business are subject to this.

November 6th, 2006 H MD

received several missed calls from this number on 11/5/06 and the weekend before. no message left

November 5th, 2006 Tricia Eustache CA

They have been calling for the past couple of days. I have been ignoring but the calls are becoming more frequent (3 times already today). When I try to call the number it says, "we're sorry; the number you have reached is not in service..." Probably a total of 6 calls from this number. Can't wait to answer next time :)

November 5th, 2006 nikki FL

i recieved about 3 calls and no message. when i call back it is always busy. i think it is the same thing as xyz got, maybe regarding my car?

November 3rd, 2006 Selena MO

I got a call from Venture Data3...didn't recognize the #, so I did not answer. There was along pause with some slight background noise and then a male voice said very solomly..."I need help!" Then hung up...very wierd...I tried to call the # back, but was always busy.

What is the point of the Do Not Call Registry? It doesnt seem to do anything. Correct me if I am wrong but couldnt we all ban together and a do a Class Action Lawsuit against these companies? We pay for our phone lines cell phones etc we should have the right to opt out of these calls any lawyers on this site?

Why can you be on a federal no call list and yet they can call at 10:00pm. This is outrageous and rude. An invasion of my privacy.

October 20th, 2006 Rusty NV

This number has called me at the same time on the 19th and the 20th at 8:34PM PST. That is my business phone and I never answer it I just check the messages and caller ID and no message was left from this number when it called.

October 18th, 2006 Dawn AZ

Contact DAn Desatoff at 801-685-8210 to lodge a complaint. He works from 10 to 5, MST. Its his job to STOP the complaints. According to this guy, no calls should be before 3p.m. and up to 10 p.m. Whatever. I know when they called me but they removed my number from the state I live in survey list. Yes, they said list.

October 18th, 2006 Dawn AZ

Yesterday, this company phoned me at 9:00 p.m. to conduct a political survey. I explained, (nicely this time) it was 9 o'clock and they got me out of bed to answer the phone. They apologized and went about their speel. When I stated that it was late and this is inappropriate, they tell me they are exempt from any Do Not Call laws and they have the right to phone when they want to. I asked them to remove me from their list and do not call me again.

At 10:15, yep, phone rang. Woke me up from a dead sleep and this time they wanted the male voter in my house. I was pretty angry and said it was 10:00 o'clock. They said they had important work to do and began asking me questions. I stated, again, (not nicely) to remove me from their *&@'ing list and do not call again.

At midnight, yep... you know who called. Now, I screamed and stated if they call again, I don't care what they are exmempt from, but I will file harrassment charges.

No calls since.

October 18th, 2006 Tom

This is the second time they have called this week. They called again tonight. I told them that I don't like tele marketers and I don't like research companies. I asked him to remove me from there calling list. His reply was they don't have a call list. I told them they did because they called me. Back and forth a couple more times. Asked him for his phone number. Reply was they only had an out going line. I told him that everyone has an incoming number.(at this time he is getting quite bold) So than I used my closing comment "Put your supervisor on!" He finally hung up. This is Harassment!!!

At 8:26 p.m.CDT this number showed up on our caller ID. I have no idea who this is or why they would call my residence. I have ringmaster on my phone, so they could have been calling my roommate's number which is different from mine. We get these weird phone calls that are asked about on these websites all the time. If it's not a sales call, what is it?

October 16th, 2006 JimBobb2

They called Sunday and my wife picked up thinking it might be a calling card (Eugene Oregon was on the ID) call from her son...he's in Kuwait or Iraq, he can't really tell us most of the time. She slammed the phone down saying something about "market research". They just called again, I had stepped out and heard the phone but couldn't get to it. As luck would have it, I just put an Interceptor ID Console on my phone about 1 hour ago. It came in via DHL delivery today. I was soooo tired of fighting with 800, 888, 866 and all the rest I popped the $100.00 for it and so far it seems to work like a champ. I cancelled all the Bellsouth non-services since they didn't do squat. I'm about to program this number to the trash can and these folks can call all they want, the phone won't ring. Wooo Hoooo, I can't hear you now!

October 10th, 2006 Julie Sines KS

This was the second calls in twh nights. Tonight at 9:45 pm!! Research data collection. When I asked why they thought it was OK to call a private home on the do not call registry, at 9:40 pm he said, "Do you want me to explain how we can get around that?" I said "NO! I don't want you to call here again!" and he said "thank you for your time" - end of conversation.

October 10th, 2006 Ben MA

Got call tonight...seemed to be routine political polling...then turned into PUSH-POLL against Deval Patrick(D) and in favor of K Healey (R) in the governor's race for Mass. Dirty questions and dirty politics...seems to be a republican trend (ala Dubya in 2000)

I started to receive calls today, I have had 3. I missed the first 2, and knowing that I am not late on any bills I answered in order to tell them to "stop" calling. Same thing, no answer, and a click. I got angry and called the number back on my caller id. It was some lady, like it was a residential number. I told her to stop called and she swears she didnt answer. So I hung up. I doubt it will work. Its probably some kind of survey or poll for the up coming elections.

I have and unlisted/unpublished number. Caller became beligerant when I stated this... Wrote company at: www.jeffc@venturedata.com stating that I eill take legal action if they call back. This is not just an idle threat -- I think this type of telemarketing (falsely rationalized as being 'political' data gathering) is unethical and disrepectful. In my opinion, the people that hire and operate it are absolute scum.

August 28th, 2006 Chance GA

Got a call from this number about a 4 minute political survey, the lady was nice so I politely declined, it won't be that way if they call again.

August 28th, 2006 Scott L.

I have a voicemail from this phone number. It was left this weekend. I don't understand it. It almost sounds like they were at a party. I will try to decypher it more tonight.

August 28th, 2006 Wisetoyourscam CA

I believe you are connected to venture data yourselves and this is another form of privacy invasion.

August 27th, 2006 Dennis AZ

If you do a google search this is a number for a polling company. Their latest tactic here in Arizona is calling registered Republican voters and using it as an opportunity to smear a candidate, the call is paid for by Steve Huffman (R) for congress and is smearing
Rand Graf (R) for congress

August 25th, 2006 Ralph

These people have called about 10 times.They told us we owe $470 to T-moble.They also use a 800 number.

August 24th, 2006 Mick CO

When I asked to be removed from their call list the girl laughed and said that they were a research group not affected by the DNC registry. I got vulgar and she hung up.

August 24th, 2006 michael

got 5 calls in one day but no message. next day got 2 calls with no message. today i picked-up but nobody said anything and then they hung up.

August 23rd, 2006 Bill

Same as all the othe posters. I have an unlisted number and CallWave on my internet. There is 11 seconds of silence and you can tell it is from a room full of telephones. Received a call several months back, must have been the same company because the caller was rude when I informed them I was on the "do not call registery." She stated they didn't need to worry about it since this was political- and then she hung up on me!!

August 20th, 2006 Dennis WA

Called me twice on a Sunday name unavailable. From "Oregon" didn't recognize the number didn't answer.

August 20th, 2006 Mylissa CT

The thing is that if we wanted to give an opinion on the polls or whatever we should have the option to call them. It is not right to be disturbed by any kind of survey when you are on a do not call registry. Don't these people know we are on them for a reason?

August 19th, 2006 jim VA

didn't answer

August 17th, 2006 Dave NM

They called the first time at 8:52 PM My wife hung up. We went to bed at 10:00PM and they called again at 10:12PM. I let them know we were in bed, and the idot on the end said I'am sorry and continued to with his polical survery. I slammed the receiver down and fumed.

August 16th, 2006 JP MI

August 9th, 2006 Dan MD

Received my first from them. Was not able to answer the phone, tried calling back, got the voicemail run around previous mentioned. Number shows 541-868-1309 and VENTURE DATA3.

August 3rd, 2006 sue NV

They just called me back again, with out of area on machine,I asked them not to call and take my name off their list, she was rude and just hung up, does not help asking them not to call, I get about 5 or 6 calls a day from them.

August 3rd, 2006 Sue NV

Just got a call, I asked them not to call, they said the do not call list only applies if they are selling something, I'm sick of them calling, they also call on a private line and out of area, they also say they are doing a survey, more like collecting data, as their name applies.

August 2nd, 2006 Mark

Very annoying who owns venture data3 I'd like to call them at 8:30 Pm again @ 9:30 pm then just for fun
2:30 am see how they like it.
It must be the Dumbingcrats!

August 2nd, 2006 JB CO

Caller ID said venture data3
Did not recognize and did not appreciate the 9:35pm call...no message left on voice mail.
So far have received six calls at various times & no messages.

August 2nd, 2006 Richard

I have not answered and they have not left a message. Today is the first I've seen of them and they've called twice.

August 1st, 2006 Marcia TX

I just called a call from 541-868-1309, Caller ID Venture Data3.

I did not pick up the phone as to allow the person a chance to talk into our answering machine. I heard the following:

Hello? Hello? then some grumbling and laughing and the guy hung up.

Seems this is a political polling company and I do live in Tom DeLay's district.

I have picked up the phone before from these kinds of people and I do not appreciate their way of wording things, like stem-cell research (do you believe that destroying a human embryo is murder?). I have MS - they are talking to the wrong people.

August 1st, 2006 Art FL

what a pain in the..(then they hung up.. girls voice in her late 20's.)

July 31st, 2006 VD4EVER

let me make clear that hanging up on them WILL NOT stop them from calling you back.
you need to actually say 'no' to a person, not just hang up.
if they dont hear a voice, refusing to do the survey, it is classified as 'no answer' and will be called again.
as a polling company they don't leave messages, so even if they can only get your machine it will be classified as 'answering machine' and will be called again.

also, this entity is EXEMPT from the Do Not Call Registry and many other limiting phone laws.

July 31st, 2006 VD4EVER

This is NOT a tele-marketing company. They conduct voter opinions polls. They DO NOT use a list or harvest numbers. As a polling company they generate random phone numbers (that is why they mistakenly call cell phones and fax numbers).
It is also legal for polling companies (and charities) to call until 10 PM.
If you do not want them to call you, or if they call your fax or cell, you need to pick up the phone and ask them not to call again. They can make sure that your number, though randomly generated, is not called back about that survey.

July 31st, 2006 Sarah AZ

Received about 5 calls but never received a voice mail.

July 31st, 2006 Jeff G.

July 25th, 2006 James Black OR

This entity has called between 5-6 times at varying times during the day and evening, in the last 2 1/2 days and hangs up when the answering machine picks up, leaving no message.

July 23rd, 2006 Henry MI

venture data3 sucks

July 23rd, 2006 Mili -- a P.S. IL

I called the number to see who would answer, got a recording: "Voice Information Processing System. Please dial the number of the person you are calling." No other info. By the way, 541 is Oregon area code.

July 23rd, 2006 Mili IL

Some jerk called asking my help with a poll; asked a long list of questions about NYC, and why I moved to Chicago; claimed results of poll to be used for urging Congress to act. Very very strange; don't know why I cooperated.

July 22nd, 2006 CHR

Twice in one day! I don't answer my cell unless I know who it is.

July 20th, 2006 Maria

FYI: Political calls are exempt from the National Do Not Call Registry.

July 20th, 2006 Maria

I answered their call (and wrote the following about their "poll" on my blog:

I got push polled for Tricky Ricky Santorum today!

Wikipedia's definition of a "push poll" is:

"A push poll is a political campaign technique in which an individual or organization attempts to influence or alter the view of respondents under the guise of conducting a poll. Push polls are generally viewed as a form of negative campaigning."

The poll started out innocently enough, but of course, they saved the best for last. There were ten or twelve questions that were the real "push" as in "pushing" voters away from Casey. They would read a statement and you were to answer if that statement made you more likely to vote for Santorum or Casey. All of the statement were Rick positive and Bob negative along the lines of "Santorum wants to insure that terrorist don't creep across our border, but Casey wants to let millions of aliens in. Would knowing this make you more likely to vote for Santorum or Casey?"

Ugh!

July 17th, 2006 Beverly FL

Today we were out for several hours. In the time we were out there were EIGHT calls. I went outside and came back in, and there had been a ninth! No messages, but one time the representative sounded like she was talking to someone else and said "oh my god" into the answering machine. I believe that was unintentional.

July 14th, 2006 sherry

called left no message

July 14th, 2006 Linda D.

They have called about 10 times over the last couple of months. Never leaves a message on the answering machine. My husband just hangs up but they keep calling back some other day. I am going to file a complaint with the Call Registery!

July 13th, 2006 Tom VA

Received a call @ 6PM & couldn't answer in time before going to answering machine. No message left. Caller ID showed VENTURE DATA3. They called back at 9:30PM wanting to do a "Confidential Survey." Told them no & not to call back.

July 13th, 2006 Tony CA

They have called 5 times over the last three days. I suspect it is some sort of telemarketer, since I don't answer, I guess I'll never know.

July 13th, 2006 Ed

Several calls over last couple of days. I don't answer and they don't leave a message. However, on one call, it sounded like the television was on in the background. No one spoke.

July 12th, 2006 SANDY NM

They hung up when answered. I called the # back and got a recording as "Welcome to your voice information processing system. Please dial the number of the person you are calling. If you have a mail box on this system please press #". They called on July 10th 2006 and again on July 11th 2006. Caller ID specified Venture Data3

July 10th, 2006 steve NY

They call incessantly. I finally picked up, said "remove us from your list" and hung up. Didn't work. they called a few hours later (9PM on a Sunday). I filed a complaint with the do not call registry.

They said they were asking about my satisfaction (about the body shop) on body work on my car for an insurance claim. Then they started asking about my level of satisfaction w/ my particular insurance co. I said I could not answer any questions since I have an attorney.

July 1st, 2006 Lisa WI

These people have called me at least 3 times a day for the last 5 days. It is sickening! When I answer the phone no one says anything but you can hear noise in the bakcground.

Called at 9:30 on June 8, 2006. So much for the after 9 rule....

June 9th, 2006 Steve T.

I received a call from this number to my home FAX number. It wasn't a FAX call. I have recently posted my resume on the internet with my FAX number. I don't know why phone number harvesting programs can't filter results properly when a number is designated as a FAX number.

June 8th, 2006 Guam 00 Guam

June 1st, 2006 ted

hang up when answer.


How do I stop them from calling?

  1. Ask the unwanted caller to stop calling and put you on their do not call list (they are legally required to comply).
  2. If your number is registered with the National Do Not Call Registry you can file a complaint with the FTC.
  3. Block them with a call blocker or something like Nomorobo.
