calls our house 3-4 times a day

March 6th, 2014 c TX

this is a recording that asks survey questions. It repeatedly calls every few minutes every evening

February 28th, 2014 Rambo FL

Phone rang four separate times in a four hour period. I finally picked up. It was a recording asking you to press (1) to send a letter to Obama asking him to stop dragging his feet on the Keystone Pipeline(So the Koch brothers can make billions of dollars and continue to pollute the air, ground and water for the rest of us Americans).

February 28th, 2014 losers FL

called three times in a row, but I blocked the numbers

February 22nd, 2014 RG IA

This is a robo call. Twice I answered the same questions they ask(oil), and still they call

February 22nd, 2014 Pat FL

called house phone 3 times week of 2/16/14

February 22nd, 2014 Masked Avenger CA

We finally had enough of all these bottom feeders and designed a highly specialized "capture" program that uses telephone tone codes to enter the boot directory of their auto-dialer (while the recorded message plays or a live operator is waiting), injects a slow growing worm that "eats" the motherboard over a 3 week period, and then crashes the entire system without warning. We love our work.

February 21st, 2014 Lisa FL

RON, GOD BLESS YOU for mentioning below that your Panasonic cordless phone had number blocking capability!! Just figured out mine does, too, & now they're BLOCKED!! I suffer from severe migraines & if I'm blessed enough to FINALLY fall asleep, it never fails, they will call & wake both me up & my dog as well! I've even ANSWERED THEIR PIPELINE QUESTION, but they STILL CALL, all hours, numerous times a day! Hope this stops them!! Thanks again for the info on my phone!

February 20th, 2014 Rich

11 calls that I know of in just a few days, including four on a single day. This is abuse!! I thought that finally taking one of their calls would allow them to declare "mission accomplished" and leave me alone, but then they called again last night... Your gasoline dollars at work!

February 20th, 2014 rodney IA

I looked at the caller id and didn't recognize the number so I didn't answer the phone. They are wasting their time. That's why I got the caller id, so I can screen the calls!!

February 20th, 2014 V.L. IA

multiple calls from this number over the last 10 days. No message left.

February 20th, 2014 Donna MI

It was a call about the ACA. They wanted to know if I signed up for health insurance on my states health insurance exchange. I told them it was none of their business. They told me that if I didn't sign up the president would put my name on a list with the IRS. I hung up.

February 20th, 2014 Sandra CO

I am on the do not call list and have a unlisted phone number.Still get these call's.

February 20th, 2014 Suzee MI

CID said Virginia Call. Called 3 times in an hour. I don't answer any calls unless I know who it is but it sure doesn't stop them from trying.

February 20th, 2014 A2 Michigan MI

Allowed call to go to voicemail, but they did not leave a message again. Rude behavior does not serve their interests.
I once had a fax machine that would immediately hang up on calls that I programmed as spam then print a receipt of the time and date of the call. Neat device, but it was a large machine and the fax operation is antiquated.

February 18th, 2014 Doug WI

This call is from the API (ameican petrolium institute; aka kock brothers). The robo caller says that the american people are in extreme danger if the US does not build the XL pipeline.

February 16th, 2014 annoyed MI

Some anti government political group with a recorded message. Very annoying!

February 16th, 2014 Horny FL

A robot constantly calling In the evening & not leaving a message like a stalker turns me on somehow .... Just the thought of it is giving me the chills right now (;

February 16th, 2014 Ann Garrett MI

They hang up and leave no message. From another site it said there is a recording at it's backed by Karl Rove/Republican Party. They call at all hours, 7 days a week. I am on the DNC list, but they seem to be exempt. I want them to stop calling.

February 16th, 2014 KOCO MI

Stop calling

February 16th, 2014 crabeee2 IL

No message silance

February 16th, 2014 Dave FL

This is the 4th time they have called, and left no message. Put them on the blocked list.

February 16th, 2014 Rex MI

We ignore calls listed as unknown caller. It is good to read these reports from others citing the same thing

February 16th, 2014 Larry MI

Get called from this number quite often. I just ignore it. They never leave a message. They aren't the only ones that do this. Nice to know who it is though.

February 16th, 2014 Mike MI

calls made for American Petroleum Institute. While I support the pipeline I hate robo calls. I called API at 202-682-8000 and demanded the calls stop on Tuesday, and by Wednesday they did. Nice lady answered the phone, I was ready to really bitch about 5 or more calls a day, but she was professional and I got the results I wanted.

February 16th, 2014 SUE MI

TWO CALLS TODAY . I AM ON DO NOT CALL LIST

February 16th, 2014 V for Vendetta MI

Robo call that would not even complete its call when I answered it. Its from "API" or the Koch brothers because its all related to the Keystone Pipeline, which stands to make the Koch brothers and big oil Tons of money in the name of "U.S. Jobs." I too am on the do not call list, perhaps I need to check and see if I need to renew it. You can call this number back, I did and left a very nice message. :)

February 16th, 2014 Pissed CO

Robo-call claiming to represent "API" American Petroleum Industry, message is anti-Obama, pro-Keystone Pipeline. I do not have a business relationship with them, and they are not a political party, nor a non-profit. I am on the Do Not Call List. No option provided for removal from their list when I called back. Burn these bastards.

February 16th, 2014 Deb

I do not answer calls unless I recognize the number. I've had repeated calls from this number, like others who have commented. Very, very, very annoying to get these calls since I'm on the do-not-call list!

February 15th, 2014 JL IL

Stop calling! The message is messed up and will not even complete....it reboots.

February 15th, 2014 Bev VA

We don't answer numbers that we don't recognize either. Went all the way to voice mail with no message left. Quite annoying.

February 15th, 2014 Fed UP AK

I blocked their call for the future calls, but called back this time to their number, got a voice mail and left a message that changed their family lineage to include farm animals and domestic pets. People that use the phone to harass us are Scum of the earth. When will the legislature wake up to the fact that enough is enough?

February 15th, 2014 Harrassed OH

10 calls over a three day period. Others are reporting this as the American Petroleum Institute, campaigning for the Keystone XL pipeline.
Our gas $$ being used to harass us!!

February 15th, 2014 Mike NY

called 5 times today. This is harassment! They need to be bleeding in the street.

February 14th, 2014 KM OH

Daily calls from this number, no voicemail msg left. We do not answer non-recognizable phone numbers. Want it stopped.

February 14th, 2014 do not answer NC

Three calls this morning. Two yesterday. I don't answer calls that I don't recognize.

February 14th, 2014 TomS PA

no message did not pick up. Finally I blocked it with my call blocker.

February 14th, 2014 Cathy PA

Called us twice on 2/13 and calls were not too far apart. Do not pick up if I don't recognize the number. If it says Incoming Call, forget it! Ron, thanks for the suggestion. We're going to have to get a Panasonic Wireless.

February 14th, 2014 Dorothy AK

The number (703) 829-0487 called me 3 times in a row and no one ever said anything. I asked if they were freaks and told them I was reporting them to the police and the phone company.

February 14th, 2014 Vincent Hodgson IL

Third call today. 8:38am 10:44am 6:27pm

February 13th, 2014 Ron NC

I realize this is not something everyone can do but it solves all my annoyance calls. Like most people who are bothered enough to inquire, I detest this abuse and the Do Not Call registration has little impact....and it does not apply to "political cause" calls. Your number is easily obtained and purchased cheaply. In addition, if you have ever contacted a politician or given your information for a cause, then your info is out there and shared with others of similar ilk. Anyway, here is how I took care of the problem. For the last five years I have used a Panasonic wireless phone that will store up to 250 numbers on a blocked caller list. By pushing a few buttons the number is permanently blocked. When they call back it rings once and that's it. The phone displays the caller number and a symbol showing it was blocked. I enjoy knowing I have beat the pricks. Usually they will call once or twice more before stopping. My guess is their equipment senses the block and removes my number.....love it. Also, any caller with blocked numbers or uses all zeros is automatically blocked.

I have noticed a drop off in the number of robo calls over time so perhaps my number is being removed from some lists.

February 13th, 2014 Irritated

called 3 times , one right after the other. never left a message. I did not answer!

February 13th, 2014 Vincent Hodgson IL

Second call this morning. Called at 8:38am and 10:44am

February 13th, 2014 dwasifar IL

Let it go to VM, it left a message encouraging me to "press 1 to send a message to President Obama to build the Keystone pipeline." Yeah, as if. Whether I agree with what they're asking for or not, I'm certainly not going to reward them for this telephonic asshattery by helping them out. Fortunately my Android phone has a built-in blacklist, so I will never hear from this number again.

February 13th, 2014 Irritated VA

Don't pick up on calls whose #'s I do not recognize. We're on the Do Not Call list.

February 13th, 2014 Ron NC

Called twice in one hour, did not leave a message. Caller ID says Centerville, VA

February 13th, 2014 Roger NY

Caller ID says out of area. Rings 3 times does not leave message

February 13th, 2014 Barbara TX

They call every day 3 - 7 times. Never say anything and never leave message.

February 11th, 2014 Paul IL

Called 3 times today. Never says anything and never leaves a message.

February 11th, 2014 cvt MI

no one there, no message left, why call? it's on do not block and I still get calls.

February 11th, 2014 ttomsman MI

2x in the past 24 hours. No vm. I see from other posts it is from one of Karl Rove's/Republican greaseballs. Ridiculous they can get away with this bs.

February 11th, 2014 Albert CO

Robocall. These people call repeatedly. I have had many calls from this number before. The caller ID says different things. Sometimes it's Alex Smith, sometimes Virginia, sometimes Washington, DC, sometimes other names. It's a conservative political action committee (Koch Bros). The messages are always about Tea Party issues. This time they claim to be the American Petroleum Institute wanting your support for the Keystone Pipeline. The message is really not about the pipeline. They are looking for people who will comply with the request to press 1 so they can identify susceptible people to spam for campaign contributions for the upcoming election. They have called me every day for a week, 2-3 times a day.

February 11th, 2014 Debbie WV

This number calls 2-4 times a day, even on Sunday. There's no one on the other end and a message is never left.

February 11th, 2014 Charlene IA

been calling at least twice a day for the last week

February 11th, 2014 Do Not Call MI

Don't recognize the number and I don't answer it - calls daily for several days and never leaves a message. I am blocking the number now, good riddance.

February 11th, 2014 Billy DC

Some lobbyist for the Keystone XL pipeline.

February 11th, 2014 P. D. Long VA

Whoever this is keeps calling everyday. I see the number on my caller ID, do not recognize it so do not answer. The cowards do not leave a message. I am fed up with all these calls, there are others I have not reported, and listing with DO NOT CALL is useless. It doesn't work. I contacted my Congressman and got some of them taken care of, but now a new batch of unwanted calls are coming in. What gives these people the right to invade my home!

February 11th, 2014 Joe Daddy MI

It was a group that was having a circle jerk and they were looking for a pivot man. Told them I was busy today and could not attend.

February 11th, 2014 Michelle OH

I thought calls before 9am were not allowed???? called at 8:25am. If I don't recognize number on caller ID I'm not answerin'!

February 11th, 2014 Uncle Cracker FL

Keeps calling over the past three weeks, the one time I answered, no one there. I am on the DNCL.

February 10th, 2014 Gretchen

February 9th, 2014 ROSE MCGARRY MI

CALLED FOR 2 DAYS LEAVES NO MESSAGE. HAVE NO IDEA WHO THEY ARE.

February 8th, 2014 TK IA

call came in, no message, as it clicked off is had a written message that says, Top Secret....Being on the DNCL does nothing...

February 8th, 2014 Bob IA

Got call 1259pm on Saturday wanting me to tell my elected officials to quit "Partisan Politics" and approve the Keystone XL Pipeline. Ah, NO. Hope that sucker NEVER gets built.

February 8th, 2014 PK VA

American Petroleum Institute with a pre-recorded political message. Regrettably exempt from the Do Not Call registry. Too bad I can't tell them I drive a 100% electric car.

January 25th, 2014 unkle bob OH

several calls from this number but they never leave a message. Yes, I'm on the DNCL and I've quit answering the phone a couple years ago

January 23rd, 2014 brandi ME

a robo caller asking to send a letter about the petroleum messs to the goverment.

January 23rd, 2014 RF IA

These assholes called 4 times in one day. Final time message started playing on my answering machine -- Big Oil wanted to stop the efforts to block the EPA change to renewable fuels standard

January 21st, 2014 Arlene M. NC

This number has been calling daily, sometimes twice or more. There is no one there! I am so tired of these crappy calls.

This was a particular creepy call as I kindly spoke..Hello go ahead talk to me!10 seconds passed and then nothing!Something was different here as I have not ever looked into who called.My security revealed that this was where 4 unknowns came from&that the call did not come from 703!At least a skip relay of 15 different ports

Two calls today from this number, an hour and a half apart. Added to Call Block list. I don't do surveys. These buttheads haven't figured that out yet.

Robocall, (Mr.) Gutierrez (sp?), Republican something or other. Nothing about party, but don't like robocalls.
About surveys, worthless (respondents will say anything, it is what people do that matters).

Spam. Asking who you would vote for if the election was today. A computer at that... not even a real person.

SPAM for "scientific research" - wants you to take a survey.


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.
