The phone is ringing, and I don't recognize the number, All Caller ID says is, "NAME UNAVAILABLE".
Please help me figure out who is calling and what they want
Braddock VA | braddock va |
braddockva calls from 4 phone numbers:
calls our house 3-4 times a day
this is a recording that asks survey questions. It repeatedly calls every few minutes every evening
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).
called three times in a row, but I blocked the numbers
This is a robo call. Twice I answered the same questions they ask(oil), and still they call
called house phone 3 times week of 2/16/14
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.
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!
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!
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!!
multiple calls from this number over the last 10 days. No message left.
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.
I am on the do not call list and have a unlisted phone number.Still get these call's.
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.
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.
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.
Some anti government political group with a recorded message. Very annoying!
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 (;
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.
No message silance
This is the 4th time they have called, and left no message. Put them on the blocked list.
We ignore calls listed as unknown caller. It is good to read these reports from others citing the same thing
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.
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.
TWO CALLS TODAY . I AM ON DO NOT CALL LIST
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. :)
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.
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!
Stop calling! The message is messed up and will not even complete....it reboots.
We don't answer numbers that we don't recognize either. Went all the way to voice mail with no message left. Quite annoying.
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?
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!!
called 5 times today. This is harassment! They need to be bleeding in the street.
Daily calls from this number, no voicemail msg left. We do not answer non-recognizable phone numbers. Want it stopped.
Three calls this morning. Two yesterday. I don't answer calls that I don't recognize.
no message did not pick up. Finally I blocked it with my call blocker.
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.
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.
Third call today. 8:38am 10:44am 6:27pm
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.
called 3 times , one right after the other. never left a message. I did not answer!
Second call this morning. Called at 8:38am and 10:44am
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.
Don't pick up on calls whose #'s I do not recognize. We're on the Do Not Call list.
Called twice in one hour, did not leave a message. Caller ID says Centerville, VA
Caller ID says out of area. Rings 3 times does not leave message
They call every day 3 - 7 times. Never say anything and never leave message.
Called 3 times today. Never says anything and never leaves a message.
no one there, no message left, why call? it's on do not block and I still get calls.
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.
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.
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.
been calling at least twice a day for the last week
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.
Some lobbyist for the Keystone XL pipeline.
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!
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.
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'!
Keeps calling over the past three weeks, the one time I answered, no one there. I am on the DNCL.
3 calls today--Sunday 2-9-14
No one on line
CALLED FOR 2 DAYS LEAVES NO MESSAGE. HAVE NO IDEA WHO THEY ARE.
call came in, no message, as it clicked off is had a written message that says, Top Secret....Being on the DNCL does nothing...
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.
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.
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
a robo caller asking to send a letter about the petroleum messs to the goverment.
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
obamacare number wanting you to sign up you wife to see hairy perverted ob-gyns from arabia. Block this number and throw bo out of office!
called but did not leave message
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
ANOTHER GUTTER RAT TRAPPED IN MY CALL BLOCK. LOW LIFE SCUM BAGS!
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).
Probably political auto-dialer... but no message
Called 10/10 11:10am Caller ID said out of area, they did not leave message on machine.
Cue up the Jedi Master Yoda quote: ''Try not! Do .. or do not! There is no try.''
This number keeps calling but there's never anyone there. I called the number back today and got a recording that said, "If we have called your number by mistake, please press 9 and we will TRY to remove your number from our list." I pressed 9 and the recording said, "We will TRY to remove your number from our list." What is there to TRY?? Remove the number already!
Ok I bite, what gives here. Dead air, no probably checking to see if voice or dead line. Certainly not my phone company checking the static on my line.
If someone calls from a strange number and hangs up, it's possibly (probably?) a number harvester. Calls sequential #s looking for live humans. If you picked up and answered "Hello?", your number will probably get sold at a premium to telemarketers willing to pay to weed out dead #s and voicemail boxes.
Called cell and hung up
Got a call from this number and it just hung up too.
Received on my cell phone but a hangup. Probably some political BS, given the origination locale.
Hangup call to my cellphone from this number. Probably some political BS.
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.
It was an automated call identifying itself as a company called "Data Research" and asking yes/no questions about pets.
As I suspected, Verizon says they "unable to regulate how phone service is used" by any of their customers. They gave me a list of things you could do, but it doesn't look like any would work. I did put in a complaint to www.donotcall.gov but if this idiot is considered a "political organization" he has the right to call us. Not fair, but I guess we're stuck. I don't plan to spend any money calling this idiot's home cuz others appeared to have called and it doesn't seem to matter. ggrrr...
very frustrating, to answer and no one says a thing
Whu not just start calling this Joe Fulton guy every five minutes with a "survey".
They just keep on calling..No messages left.
Caller ID reported number and
Asked me if I was a registered voter; asked me if I considered myself "African-American", at which point I hung up.
I am in ZIP 45247.
Questions on dogs, age, etc. Sounds like thieves.
How anoying they keep calling twice a day
I don't answer it. They leave a message that they are taking a survey and will call later.
I did a reverse lookup and found this is a land line # from Braddock VA, carried by Verizon. I just sent verizon an email referring to this website and asked them to stop this phone number. I'll let you know if I hear anything -- or if I don't.
Caller ID: 571-522-1575
Reading these other entries, I'm glad I didn't answer the phone.
Buy a cheap telezapper to get removed from their call list-then pass it on to a friend. what a crock
Time: Sep 21, 2006 10:13:21 AM
Incoming Voice Mail from 5715221575 - name unavailable and no message
2nd call in since last night. Didn't answer it.
Violaton of the "National Do Not Call Registry" policy as they are masking the real intentions of the call by stating it's a survey. Please report them here: www.donotcall.gov click file a complaint. If enough of us file it will be all over for them. Good luck!!
CallerID reported FEDR on the line. After reading all this I'm glad we ignored it. I HATE election time!!! Isn't it enough to sit through the mindless political TV ads?
Multiple calls, each saying Centerville, VA
Called at 7:15 didn't know who so I didn't answer. Now I know who.
Caller ID FEDR--cal atleast three times a day.
Heard a recording saying it was a survey--then I hung up
called at 8:15pm
said UNKNOWN CALLER on caller id. I answered on third ring and no one was there. Glad I didn't actually have to talk to one of these weirdos. Thanks for the comments.
Usually they call with political messages. Today they said they were doing a "pet survey" and asked if we owned a dog, and our ages. Weird.
don't want your unsolicitated phone calls for any reason
27 Calls in one day....
while I was at work, what I'd give to have this persons home #, so I could annoy the *&%$ out of them.
I don't answer any call that comes up on my caller ID that isn't from family, friends or work. Glad I didn't answer this one at 8:30pm. 9/18/06
Calling 3-4 times a day. Needs to stop- way to much of a waste of air time!
We should forward all day long to the Politicians
FEDR shows up on my caller ID from the number above. We receive calls from these people 3 to 5 times a day.
If this turns out to be a political survey, I'm going to tell them *exactly* what I think. ;-P
They've called 3X in the last few days, Thu 9/14, Fri 9/15, & today 9/18. Reverse lookup said Land Line in Braddock, VA. No answer when I call them, and the numbers 571-522: 1500, 1574, & 1576 are not happening, so my guess is it's some wanker's PC just scrolling through numbers in order. The "anon" post who gave the link to a Joe Fuiten from Bothell gets 3 Big Thumbs Up, since Fuiten's bio gave the name of the sponsoring organization The Committee For Religious Freedom. Fuiten's church phone # is 425-488-3600. If you're upset, don't call & scream at the nice girl who answers the phone. Likewise, when you call his home #, 425-486-5245, don't yell at the nice lady who answers, just tell her we all hate unsolicited calls, & explain Karma to her. Now I'm gonna give Comcast a call & see about how to block numbers
They call my home typically 5+ times per day, and I have several others that call numerous times each day too. Thank heavens for caller ID. Unless we recognize the caller, we don't answer the phone.
My phone has rung 3x today and all are from Unknown Name. My phone # is Unlisted . I agree that they do not leave a message-people I too ignore. Why is it my number is Unlisted-but yet they keep calling.
Spew your BS somewhere else.
Joe Fuiten, the man delivering the recorded message, is a pastor at Cedar Park Assembly of God Church in Bothell, Wa.
I was pissed like everyone else about this and actually called the Groen campaign to complain. I got a voicemail back saying that they weren't responsible and that someone was attempting to sabotage their campaign. Is it true? I don't know, but the original call was so nasty that I'm tempted to believe it.
it was something about voting for the supreme court justices
Could be BIAW or it could be some astro-turf group created by "The American Tort Reform Association," which is headquarted in VA.
Republicans are Evil. This is the Building Industry again, trying to get their bulldozers and butt-ugly subdivisions all the way to the foot of Mount Rainier.
Calling all day.
Glad I ignored this one.
Republicans are evil. But even more evil is the Homebuilders Association backing this crap.
thank god for caller ID.
They call even on sunday.
I don't answer because I suspect they are bogus pests.
Thanks to those of you who have answered and posted here.
Call received 9/13/06, Caller ID said unavailable and the number. I didn't answer it, but came online and punched in the number to get an idea of who it was, and I found this site in the process.
I did not answer and I am happy also I did not waste my time thank god for CALLER ID
Did not answer. Glad I did not waste the time.
9.13.06, name unknown, and it was a missed call
Some pre recorded political survey. I wasn't home. There was a message in my voicemail.
Called today with a bogus recorded survey but went on to trash the democrat (Baron Hill) running against incumbant representative Mike Sodrel in Indiana. How low with the GOP go??
I call them back,...
I'll try again at midnite
Keep calling with no message. Call id said unknown. Seems like the no call list should do something about this.
I've had several family members receive the same call.
I haven't answered their calls, they are now calling twice a day (morning and evening) and not left any message. It annoys me to death that political polls and campaign calls are exempt from the do not call list. I don't want to talk to them any more than I do some telemarketer.
This number has come up three times on caller ID. The second time it came up it said name unavailable, the other two times it said FEDR. The most recent call came in this AM, 9/12 at 9:50 AM at 9:50...no message...line busy when I rty to call back. We are registered with the do not call list
This is the second time they called, they were from the republican party for an opinion surve
Asked patent questions, pro live, ect. If we were going to vote republican.
I think this party could do better than pay someone to ask these stupid questions! Maybe pay off 1000000% of our dept.
Mom always said pay your bill first.
I get several calls a day from these idiots. It is a computerized call so there is no way to tell them to stop the calls. I hope they realize that this is not helping their political aspirations.
Keeps calling won't leave a message. Caller ID shows Unknown Caller.
It was some sort of survey. I hung up before they got through the first question.
I don't answer numbers that don't identify. Glad I didn't. 7:58 pm
BS political poll
3:45PM AND 2:22 PM
They call multiple times every day and don't leave a message so I never pick it up.
I have very important people in my life that are in with the feds and you never know when they might be calling you from one of their prisons so never call me at my ############ again because this is crap trying to get survay's like this
I don't really know who this people are,
And why they keep calling me every day
But they will never get a chance from me,
Cus i ignore then. I don't waste my time with
This kind of phone calls. I just hope somebody
Do something to stop this freaks phone calls.
Glad I didn't answer.
These people are now calling 4 or 5 times per day. Say they are Common Cause RI
Stop calling my ###### thank you
They called twice today on 9/7/06. All it said on my caller ID was FEDR.
They're calling people in northern West Virginia with negative "survey questions" about Rep. Alam Mollohan.
This was a blatent push poll "survay". When it didn't get the answers it wanted, it went on to warn me about the bad decision I had made and threatened to send info that would change my mind. Definitely related to the jerks at 5715226400
BS political poll
They call several times a day and I never answer it because it doesn't show a name or even say "unavailable".
This push poll was used to prejudice voters against the Democratic candidate for Congress in Iowa, Leonard Boswell.
This was the most skewed and unscientific poll I've ever had. Surveys should never ask questions and refer to anything as "unfair". What a crock!!
Keeps calling my cell phone for political survey
This is some BS political survey
I believe this number is associated with 571-522-6400 number.
ID reads 'Braddock, Va." They never leave message. I am on the gov do not call registry.

They keep calling evey few days - no message.
They keep calling every several days.
I received a call from this number (571) 522-1511 on 6/22 at 7:58p and again on 6/23 at 10:08a. Really upsets me these people feel they can call at anytime and never leave a message; I thought this is what the Do Not Call registry is for!
I GET CALLS FROM PRDR CALLER ID SAYS PRDR 571-522-1511 I HAVE ANSWERED TWICE NO ONE THERE, TRIED *69 DIDN'T WORK
The robot on the line when we picked up this call began right off quizing us about our feelings about the use of public lands. They asked questions like "Should public lands be off limit to motor vehicles?" and "are you a rebulican?" It seemed pretty creepy to me. Can they expect good poll results from this type of robot ear attack? Who these people?
They called 3 times within about 2 hours. Hang up as soon the answering machine started.
Received this call at 10:49 am. I wasn't here to answer and they left no message.
I just picked up a call from the PRDR and proceeded to answer all questions with either the response--screw you or blow me--haha--it made me feel a little better.
Received calls over the past 4 days, no messages left. Calls are always in the middle of the day when I am at work, but they do not leave a message? WTF?
They expect me to just call them back long distance!? There should be a law that these companies that call must leave a msg indicating why they are calling.
I'm on a Do Not Call List and DO NOT WANT TO BE BOTHERED. 7:35 PM at nigt, my toddler is trying to sleep.
i answered the call (2x) and immediately heard a recorded voice say "this was a political survey, we may try back again"
caller id says Braddock, VA
I keep getting phone calls - 1-3 per day - no messages
Rec'd 2 calls from PRDR within the last 2 days that my answering machine picked up. The caller left no msg. My caller id said PRDR 571-522-1511
Recieved call on 6-9-06 from PRDR 571-522-1511, left no message. Busy at times, cannot get through at others. No one ever answers!!
Caller ID PRDR
2:51 PM est, no msg
Computer poll saying it was Pennsylvania Family Council. Caller ID "PRDR".
no message left, two hang up calls.
Caller ID says Braddock, VA
They left a message claiming they were the local utility company. This is really funny because I work for the local utility as the IT / Telecom supervisor and it was not anyone who works for us. We are a small company and I would recognize any one who I worked with.
4:15 PM - NO MESSAGE LEFT - CALL CAME THROUGH ON CALLWAVE (INTERNET ANSWERING)
Caller ID said unknown caller (571)522-1511
Have received two hang up calls from number (571) 522-1511 in the last couple days. Caller ID says PRDR
