has called at least 5 nights in a row

October 6th, 2012 nr CA

Supposing this is a legitimate research company (and thus exempt from DNC), the best you can do is wait until mid-November for things to quiet down, or actually participate in the poll. Now if I could figure out which politician or super PAC or agency was selling my number to these pollsters…

September 9th, 2012 Customer MA

Comcast really should add more than 12 numbers we can block. Like 12 is great, but my cell phone can block unlimited numbers will the Call Control App.

Your bitching isn't going to change anything. Being rude to employees isn't going to change anything. Going above the heads of Wilkins Research and complaining to the firm that has hired them, though?

That will change everything.

DON'T TALK to these cockroaches just blast them with a #4 dial-tone, they hang-up after 10 seconds, keep doing this eventually they move on, if you talk to them your phone # goes on a SUCKERS list.

February 15th, 2012 none WA

national poll research company - says not collecting money just wants opinion. Calls every night, so I give them a different opinion and mess around with them. Fun times.

February 9th, 2012 Roger WA

just called and hung up

October 28th, 2011 Andy BC Canada

Just received a call from Wilkins Research Services in regards to my radio-listening habits. Seems kind of odd that they'd be phoning kitty-corner across the continent (from Chattanooga, TN, to Vancouver, B.C.) just for a survey.

Anyway, a very polite person named Cindy thanked me for my time after I declined to answer any questions.

The following URL links to the FTC FAQ page which the DNC site *twice* coaxed you to read before you registered your numbers. See items 28 through 32 in particular.
www.ftc.gov

You will note that the federal DNC program exempts all non-sales calls and all callers who can claim an established business relationship. You will have to revoke call consent directly, requesting placement on the given survey firm's internal no-call list.

Called us at 8 pm on Friday. can we not have any peace after a long week. We are on donotcall... did not leave message. Annoying!!

It does not matter if your on the do not call list! Surveys, charities, and political, and people not selling you anything can call all they want get your facts straight or shut up!

When you get dead air is when the auto dialer is connecting to you and if you wait for a response someone will answer its not some conspiracy to find out when your home, its computer lag! If you don't know what your talking about you should not talk! The more times you open your mouth the more opportunities you have of putting your foot in it!

Western Wats is the largest survey company in the united states and all the surveys are confidential to both parties! Big companies, political groups and market research firms hire them to get important public views! Most of the employees are college students trying to make ends meet so if you care at all about other peoples lives and not just your own you will take the time to answer the 5-15 min. survey and help them and their family make a living, not waste their time and cost the pay raises! Being a human being is not too hard!

"Working Mom" is nuts! What gives her the right to annoy the crap out of people -- and then get PAID for it? "sick and tired" is right: GET A REAL JOB THAT DOESN'T ANNOY PEOPLE. The real blame lies with the money-grubbing idiots who run the cheezy Wilkens Research joint. They, too, should get real jobs.

A newly-minted phone # from an apparently less-than-ethical Chattanooga, TN "market research firm", Wilkins Research Services Inc. Program their # to be blocked, if you don't want to deal with the nuisance calls - their site boasts of "a state-of-the art calling facility and 60 call stations"!!

Prior to reporting them, note all details of the calls that you can: #/day/time/frequency/content of message or conversation. Establishing a pattern will help to build a strong case to the Attorney General to take action against them.

BS Kiwi! As long as your company THINKS it's important, that gives you the right to call people any time you wish??

Some ass from Wilkins called here yesterday saying (no introduction, nothing)"I need to speak to the 12-24 year old female that lives at your residence." Yeah, right - like I'm going to hand my 12 yr old daughter the phone when I have NO IDEA what they'll ask her, who is really calling, what foul language they might use, etc. I told the ass in no uncertain terms that they wouldn't be speaking to anyone in my household about anything regardless of how many times they continue to call!

No compnay - regardless of what "research" they might be doing has the right to invade my privacy and ask to speak to an underage minor without my consent! Wilkins was reported to my local police department because of that call!

January 25th, 2008 KIwi GA

For all of you who wonder how unlisted numbers, cell phone numbers and numbers on the DNC registry get called; research companies such as these use an automated dialing system that has area codes programmed into it and then randomly dials the last 4 digits. The machines are programmed to ring the number 4 times and then disconnect. As I have seen others explain the DNC registry doesn't apply to non profit organizations, research companies or companies that you have solicited any business or information from in the last 12 months. The company in question covers all kinds of market research from political to media, music to medical. Yes I know it can be annoying, but it's also how the US government gets feedback on important bill issues; such as immigration issues and care and services in hospitals. These companies don't just call to piss you off, although yes they do call at inappropriate times when you are eating, putting kids to bed, watching your favorite prime time show or just unwinding; but they have a job to do that plays an important part in our society of consumerism, cable TV and politics.

January 22nd, 2008 JC CO

This number has called every night for the past 6 nights right at 9:00 pm. I never did answer it.

January 21st, 2008 Tom TX

This number called several times over the weekend while I was out of town. No message but alot of hangups on my machine. Don't they understand that I'm either not there or I'm not going to pick up?

January 21st, 2008 sick and tired TX

working mom - Tell it to someone who cares!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Get a job where you don't annoy people at all hours of the day and night!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!GET REAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

January 21st, 2008 Working Mom TN

For those of you that think you are alone in this, and do not think the people working for Wilkins know what is it like.....Yes, we do. I work for Wilkins. I am a single mother, I work almost 50 hours a week and I go to college full time. I am not some trained monkey or some pathetic loser that cannot get any other job. We work for a wonderful set of sisters that provide a very good work environment for college students, single mothers and elderly people. I get up early in the morning, work a long day and still have the decency to be polite when my telephone rings. I have had my young infant wake up because of the phone, yet I have also seen what is on the other side of the phone so I have some respect. I'd like to see some of you spend a day on the phones dealing what these interviewers deal with after their long days at college. Think about that next time you answer your phone and want to be completely inconsiderate and disrespectful.

January 19th, 2008 Jan GA

I got this call today. They asked me five questions, which I should have not answered. They asked if I watched Oprah in the afternoon. I said I record it, okay so they said then we will say no. If this it is a survey about afternoon TV fine. If they are trying to find out how many people watch Oprah this is a bad survey.

January 18th, 2008 JG TX

Ally, one day when you're out of college, have just spent all day working at your tiring job, made dinner, cleaned up, did a load of laundry, bathed and finally gotten the kids in bed, then sat down for a second to unwind in front of the TV when the phone rings at 8:48 pm (and wakes the kids up), maybe you'll understand why people are so DAMN TIRED of these annoying type of phone calls!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

January 17th, 2008 OE

This is the contact info for the company with the 423-490-5694 number. I called the corporate office and the receptionist took my number and said she would pass it along to have it removed. When I asked how long it would take, she didn't know.

This number has called a atleast 2 times this past weekened and has not left a message.

January 14th, 2008 Ron TX

Market research is just as annoying as a sales call. To Ally, if you don't like what people say about your company or don't like rude people whom you are interrupting by your phone calls, then I suggest you get a different job. I don't ask to be called by anyone asking questions or trying to sell something. It's just a pain in the rear!

January 13th, 2008 Mildred AL

I wish something could be done to stop them from calling.They should not be allowed to call anybody on SUNDAY. Some people sleep late on Sunday anyway.What a rude way to be wakened.

January 13th, 2008 ceinga

Showed their ph# in my caller ID as well as their ph# - I did not recognize their number so did not answer. I figure if it is someone I know, they will leave a message.

Just found this website (whocalledus) and love it....

We are on do not call list but seem to get more calls since we registered...same with unwanted faxes...we unsubscribe and just end up getting more - What a royal pain!

today at 7:30. Wilkinson Research on caller ID. Message was recorded. It was at 239 BPM for about 1.5 seconds. Slowing it down it seems they are saying "leave the paper" WTF

don't hate tenn. we are the patron state of shooting stuff. we'll catch those people and shoot them in the crotch with air rifles 100's of times

December 29th, 2007 O_o TN

haha. we find it very distasteful and "low class" to call people multiple times per week, hang up on us when we answer, or when you call past dinnertime. kthx.

December 17th, 2007 Ally

I just happen to be an employee of Wilkins Research Company, and I find it very distasteful and low class that there are so many people on this site throwing personal attacks at this company. We are not monkeys (most of us have the job to pay our way through college), and would it hurt to say "No thank you" ? Surveys are also not included in the Do Not Call List, and if you thought about it, surveys are taken and conducted to help improve certain aspects of companies that citizens listen to or view.

December 13th, 2007 Amanda TN

My hubby answered this because its a TN number, and we live in TN and thought it could be relatives. My husband told me that when he answered this number, a lady claiming to be from a Milk company wanted us to answer survey questions about milk. He lied and said we hate milk and hung up. lol.

November 24th, 2007 Matthew B PA

After the third or fourth "Unknown Name" call in which I picked up and got only silence, I phoned Wilkins Research at the number suggested a few times on this bulletin board (423-894-9478), hit 0 and got a pleasant and apologetic operator who took down my number and promised to take it off their lists. "Sometimes the computers just keep dialing over and over," he said, sounding chagrined. Am hopeful I won't be seeing 423-490-5694 pop up on my Caller ID for a while!

Is it doing any good to have reported your number for "do not call",
doesn't seem to.

Caller ID showed number but Unknown Name. Picked up; no one on the line.

They have called 13 times in 4 days finally I answered and as she started her speil I said "I am on the Do Not Call List so Do Not Call-are you bright enough to get that" and hung up

November 12th, 2007 cyndi NC

I have had several calls from this number but they never leave a message. They called last night, which was a Sunday, at a little after 9 p.m. I thought it was illegal to make any kind of call on a Sunday and especially at that time of night.

November 2nd, 2007 E TX

I see a lot of comments about people being on the Do Not Call Registry, but this does not and will not stop all calls. The Do Not Call Registry does not cover the following: Organizations, Charities, Telephone Surveyors or companies that you have already done prior business with. These are still allowed to call and will continue. When they do call, you can tell them to take your name off of their call list, which does help occasionally.

Hope this helps!!

November 2nd, 2007 Tiffany WA

Is the DNC list just another hoax to get your number? I get calls from this # every evening, and altho no name shows up on Caller ID, the phone number (423) 490-5694 is always shown twice. When it goes into the answering machine, no message is left. My phone service has given me instructions on how to block calls from any unwanted #, and it has always worked before (3 times), so I just now entered this one. If no one calls tomorrow nite, we'll know it worked!

November 2nd, 2007 jsoos TX

same exact experience as 332 palms had.

November 1st, 2007 christina

this number has called me a few times. i never picked the call up.

November 1st, 2007 Guy TX

2nd time they called in a two days. Calling at nite (830 pm). Name on caller ID is programmed to just show their phone number, so that you do not know who they are.
No message left on answering machine.

November 1st, 2007 poed TX

These people hang up on me when I answer.... every. single. time.

October 31st, 2007 Kay

FYI, market research firms are exempt from the DNC list, which is why they can call repeatedly and at all hours. In their defense, they are NOT trying to sell you anything (if they are, they are not a legitimate research firm, and should be reported to CASRO (Google it)or the BBB), or scam your identity (you can choose not to answer any questions about income, which is about as personal as they should get). They have been hired by a business you probably have had some transaction with and want your feedback. They're obligated to produce a certain number of completed surveys, which is why they try to call so much.

October 31st, 2007 j TX

Called me at 8:50 pm no name on cid. I let the answering machine pick it up since it was out of the local area and past 8pm on into my private time. They left no message.

October 30th, 2007 NM

I am receiving call from this number 2/3 times a week for the last couple of months. When I pick up the phone, it diconnets right away.

The 423 area code is not one of Bell South's or AT&T's area codes. According to a AT&T rep out of Tennessee, 423-490-5694 is a "teleport" number.
For annoyance calls contace Tennessee Regulatory Authority 877-872-7030 or 888-966-6222.

The AT&T rep also said that the company that providing this teleport number is Teleport Communication Group, Inc.
Teleport Communications Group Inc., provides range of telecommunications services in major metropolitan markets nation wide. The company provides high quality, integrated telecommunications services, primarily over fiber optic digital networks, to meet the voice, data and video transmission needs of its customers. The company's customers are primarily telecommunications intensive businesses, hospitals, educational institutions, governmental agencies, long distance carriers and internet service providers. Their phone number is 732-392-2000 and url: www.business.com

Please report this number to the annoyance call center: 888-966-6222. If enough people call something will be done about this...

October 24th, 2007 Jeff TN

The caller hung up once the answering machine started.

October 22nd, 2007 grah4321

Called twice. CallerID said Wilkinson Research. Appears to be a marketing research company doing a survey. Firms doing surveys are not covered under the Do Not Call Registry. Only telemarketing calls are covered — that is, calls that solicit sales of goods or services.

October 21st, 2007 Justin NJ

The number shows up twice on the caller ID and we are on the National Do not call list. WTF? Nobody seem to be on the other end of the line.....

October 21st, 2007 N RunningWolf

There should be a law against these people calling after one is on the no call list, especially after bedtime.
The little snot i.d.'ed herself as calling from "The Shelton group".

October 21st, 2007 TR Canada

This is not the first time this number called. They do not leave a message. And when I called it said they were a Nat'l Marketing Company and hope it's ok to call another time. There should be an option to unsubscribe to their list!!!!

October 20th, 2007 jim A

Called 10/20/07 at 11:15 AM (saturday)
Caller ID and number both showed 1-423-490-5694. clearly trying to disguise their identity. I have device that blocks selected numbers and they're going on the list. They can call all they want now; won't bother me :)

October 18th, 2007 NO NAME TX

October 5th, 2007 GC CO

I missed 2 calls from this #. Went to voice mail but no message left.

October 5th, 2007 Fred PA

I just got my first call from this number. I seem to be making the rounds on the market research calling lists.

Some clarification about the DNC list and market research: "do not call" is something of a misnomer because it doesn't mean that not everyone will refrain from calling. It means that people selling something are supposed to refrain from selling something to you. It's very specific to telemarketers.

Unless the market research people also try to sell you something, DNC lists do not apply to them.

Believe me, it gives me no pleasure to say that. I filed two complaints about another market research company thinking the DNC list applied until I figured out that it didn't.

October 2nd, 2007 KPJ IL

Very annoying...why are they allowed to contact people on the DNC list?

Repeated phone calls from this number. Today was a medley of Country songs ending with Keith Urban "stupid boy"

September 30th, 2007 AH ON Canada

I did some checking and the company *is* Wilkinson Research. You can call them back at 423-894-9478 or email them at info@wilkinsresearch.net. Perhaps we could all send them some emails or call them and leave messages until they "get the message".

September 28th, 2007 VT AZ

Called home @ 8:30 pm. Asked to speak to male head of household for news survey. Said no, not interested and hung up.

September 27th, 2007 Sherri

Called my home, I let machine pick up, caller hung up

September 27th, 2007 XXXXXX idiot

Hey XXXXXXX.... wonder why you worked telemarketing? Because your personality fits it perfectly. You are such a loser (luzer in your l33t speak), that no company worth a crap would hire you. You would be better off in a homeless shelter... oh wait... even they have standards. Just go crawl up in a hole somewhere and die. Take your TM scum with you when you do!!!

September 26th, 2007 Alisha

Caller id showed 4234905694. i said hello they said nothing.

September 22nd, 2007 Cris CT

On caller ID, no message left at 5pm on a Saturday evening.

September 21st, 2007 XXXXXX sucks AZ

Hey XXXXXX,

Either you're proof that baboons can type, albeit very poorly, or you're a sorry excuse for a human being. Did somebody put a gun to your head and make you take that job?

Hint: the answer is probably no.

Are you staying in one of the hotels mentioned on this page?

www.wilkinsresearch.net

I'm going to knock on your door every night after you get home from your sorry excuse for a job and when you answer it, there won't be anyone there.

K?

September 18th, 2007 erika TX

Similar as others.
Number came up twice.
When I answered, I could hear someone on the other end, but they just hung up.
Called at 8:20 on 9/17/07

September 18th, 2007 shanda TN

this number called and it was just a reseach number when i called it back. but they hung up when i answered.

September 17th, 2007 Kansas

Got a call from them yesterday.

Using Derek's posted info I went to the Wilkins Research website. It is a 3rd-rate site that looks like it was done in an HTML editor in the mid-90s. Obviously not a reputable company.

September 16th, 2007 J Skelly OH

No message was left-
Just put my name on the National Do Not Call List two days ago-guess it hasn't taken affect....

September 16th, 2007 D Graham

What is the purpose in having your name on a DO NOT CALL list and then have calls--at 9:05 at night too.

September 16th, 2007 SRF CT

Called didn't leave a message.

September 15th, 2007 Dave TX

they called tonight and the number was displayed twice on the ncaller ID. There was alot of noise in the back ground and it sounded like a kid asked "do you like kids" and hung up. I did not want to call back because I did not know if I would be charged for the call. Thought it was a prank

September 13th, 2007 Just a girl NC

They call us everyday- only want to talk to the male head of household about how he gets his news.

This is the number that you can use to get ahold of them.

September 13th, 2007 kells NJ

They called tonight at nearly 9pm. No answer when I answered. How annoying. If I am on the do not call list how do I keep getting stupid calls like this?

September 10th, 2007 APag WI

Just received from my Caller ID. Did not have the name of the company. I don't recognize this number and won't pick it up.

September 7th, 2007 SH GA

They called at 8:06PM tonight and have called on numerous other occasions. They always hang up on the answering machine. It comes up on the caller ID as 423-490-5694, where the name should be.

September 5th, 2007 Al WI

Some jerk-off - [423-490-5694] - Chattanooga, TN -

"Hi, my name is Sam Johnson, and I'm with V93..." - I cut him off, and said, hold it, hold it, the last thing we need is some jerk-off marketing idiot on some moronic radio station. Drop us off your junk call list!

-Al

Clearly there are many other complaints. If you Google this number the list of complaints is almost endless. The local telcos should disconnect these numbers!

September 5th, 2007 To XXXXXX NV

This is especially to the illiterate individual who has nothing better to do than complain about us being rude to the callers?? I'll tell you what, the day telemarketers, research firms or whatever call me with patience and respect and don't hang up, I'll do the same. In the meantime if you are going to call, answer when I pick up my phone! Common courtesy, very simple!! If I tell you no, thank me and then hang up and I'll do the same. Job to do or not, there is NO need to be rude and ugly. Don't swear at me because I don't have time or feel like doing your survey. If you read these complaints again you will see that the bulk of the people are tired of the hangups and no messages!! Not just because they feel they shouldn't be called due to the DNC list....IDIOT.... Thanks!

September 2nd, 2007 now

who are these idiots? why do they call and don't leave a message?

August 28th, 2007 rebecca

August 28th, 2007 An

They have called eveyday this past week. when I asked them how they got my name and number they hung up on me.

August 28th, 2007 Bill H. NY

This was the second call from this "Firm". I objected to the call and he responded "F__K Off". How do I file a complaint?

August 21st, 2007 Gil Gamesh OR

If you want to complain about these guys go to www.donotcall.gov

August 21st, 2007 Gil Gamesh OR

A gentleman introduced himself as a marketing research Co. When I immediately requested to be removed from the list he simply said, "No Sir." and thanked me before hanging up.

August 20th, 2007 anti xxxxxxx

hey xxxxxx, give us your number and let all of us call you when we feel like it and then YOU ASK US POLITELY TO TAKE YOUR NAME OFF OUR LIST BEFORE WE LAUGH AND HANG UP IN YOUR FACE! ura hypocrite and a moron! there are other jobs to take that won't make honest people miserable. u punks always look for tha ez way out.....i spit on your kind!

August 11th, 2007 Jo

Have gotten about 3 more calls from this number-all after 8PM(usually close to 9). Wish I knew how to stop them. They never leave a message.

August 10th, 2007 Jes

I recieved a call from this number. I picked up the phone as usual and as soon as I said, "Hello" the person on the other line hung up. Weird. This has happened several times in the past four days.

August 9th, 2007 Carol IL

The caller ID showed the number twice, nothing to identify the caller. They left no message.I'm on the national do not call list.

August 7th, 2007 Toni MI

Just got a call from this number at 6:21 pm; I have received from this number before, also. Listened as it went to voicemail; no message was left. Sounds like some kind of "boiler room" operation in the background. I, too am on the Do Not Call list, but evidently, it doesn't work for this sort of thing, as it should!

August 7th, 2007 patb CA

THis is call number 3, I'm so sick of the late night calls. It shows up as Out of Area. I did not answer... THis is not the only number that i'm getting these calls, to many to list. THis all started about two weeks ago.

August 7th, 2007 Jo

Got a call from this number at 850 PM. No message left (Of course!). Number shows up twice on CID. (Now that I read some of the comments, we had someone in the ER about a month ago....??) We just don't answer any unknown numbers!

August 6th, 2007 Michelle IL

I answered this call 8/4/07 figuring it was my hubby(he was out of state) This is a Radio Research Company. Wanted to ask questions about your radio listening. I told them i didnt listen to the radio and had no problems hanging up with them.

August 5th, 2007 hesham IL

Someone called me from this number too. I didn't pick it up because the name display and number display were exactly the same thing.

So much for DNC list. These people call my house at least 3 times a day. I don't care what they are or not selling, this should be considered harrassment! Research my foot!

July 23rd, 2007 bob NS Canada

Called every night this week at 8:50 pm plus this afternoon. Always the same company but a different operator. Here in Canada these guys aren't supposed to call after 8:00 or on Sundays, but I guess they don't care, who's going to charge them

July 20th, 2007 Annoyed OH

I also got a call from this number; caller ID displayed "Tennessee" and the number, but no company name. No message was left.

July 20th, 2007 Patricia

I am on the do not call list and I don't appreciate my phone ringing with this number and disturbing my dinner or my TV time or whatever I am doing. The do not call list needs to be enforced.

July 17th, 2007 Hfx Girl NS Canada

I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia and have been getting calls every day, a couple times each evening, for about a week. Never been to Tennesse or a hospital in the States. Answered a couple times and waited about 30 seconds and just got dead air. To XXXX: I would be happy to ask them not to call me again but they never answer, just keep spam phoning me which is extremely annoying!!

July 15th, 2007 jmcnair

Tried to answer and it thought I was a FAX - squealed in my ear.

July 15th, 2007 DKing CA

They call once a day,always during work or Church hours. And have no caller ID.

July 13th, 2007 Rs PA

Called at 8:50. I answered and a I asked who she wanted to speak with. She said she wanted to speak with me (giving no names) for a second so I hung up.

July 12th, 2007 Crave NV

Got a call from them, I didnt pick up, there was a lot of background noise, people laughing.

July 12th, 2007 XXXXXX

For anyone thats is reading this and still bitching about A Research Firm calling them when they are on the DNC list... I worked for one of these reasearch companies and if you dont want them to call you all you have to do is say take me off your ist... It is not that fuckin hard. The DNC list DOES NOT APPLY to Research companies because they are NOT selling anything it only applies to telemarketers and that is in the writing if you dumbass people would pay attention! These people dont want to call you just as much as you dont want them you call you.... They are doing this to get paid and many of them are in their late teens and early twenties trying to make some moeny to pay their way through school... so STOP being pieces of shit and tryin to yell at these people... you just make a fool of yourself and they are laughing at you on the other side of the phone.... Do everyone a favor and quit bitching about the DNC list and just say you dont want to be on the research companies list anymore... is that really so difficult... I DONT THINK SO!

July 11th, 2007 Cam

Called around 7pm. Hung up when I answered.

July 11th, 2007 Kate

Got a call from this number the other day (caller ID said Tennessee) and another today at around 8pm. They just hung up when I answered. (??)

July 11th, 2007 Wendy

We got a call from this place. We get calls from other survey's or other type places and more. They should be monitoring our DNC list more since I know we are on it and that.

July 10th, 2007 L Perkins TX

This number has repeatedly called my home for the past week. I do not answer if I don't know the caller. Never leaves a message.

July 8th, 2007 susan NJ

Received call 5pm on a Sunday and I heard them hang up when I answered. Caller ID said Tennessee. If legitimate, why hang up?

July 8th, 2007 Marty ON Canada

Answering machine picked up and like TMBrown, sounded like a party in the background. Why aren't research/poll/opinion calls required to honor the "Do not call" listings?

July 7th, 2007 joe

did not answer, thank goodness!!!

June 25th, 2007 Lilly SK Canada

These calls are very annoying 3 times this weekend and they never leave a message !!!!

June 24th, 2007 ferro

I have been receiving calls from these people really late in the evening (past 9pm) and now on sundays too. I have never been to the hospital/er here in the USA. Who all gives these morons my number?

June 24th, 2007 Lewis Stroup

Call received on6/22 at 5:36 PM. Showed up on caller ID. This is the third time this same number has shown up. Who is it?

June 24th, 2007 SRoth WA

another no message no name telemarketing bunch of crap

June 14th, 2007 Just Me CA

They called 2 days in a row, and the second time I had to ask why I was getting a call after I asked the previous time to be taken of their list. I don't understand why the do-not-call list don't apply to these scumbags. In the last few months my interrupt-my-dinnertime-call volume has gone from zero to around 2 or 3 a night. What is going on? I wish there was a you-won't-get-a-dime-from-me list so that they know they are wasting their own time and money by calling me, since them wasting my time means nothing to them.

June 13th, 2007 Laura Brandley WA

My daughter answered the phone. She said it sounded like a mexican man. Poor spokened english. He said the word tv,then she hung up on him. She could not uderstand what he was trying to say.

June 7th, 2007 aggrivateddd AL

Unfortunately, this marketing research firm is protected by a pice of paper that you sign when you go to a hopsital for treatment. It's so aggrivating to get these calls and my car dealership uses a similar firm everytime I take my car in for service. It's hard to get out of getting the calls when you can't get your car or be released from teh hospital without signing this stupid anti-privacy clause. It says that they will give your information to research firms so they cn better provide service for customers. SO STUPID! The DNC list doesn't help in these instances. I got this call from my ER visit last month. I purposly do not answer any calls taht I don't recognize the number.

June 5th, 2007 cwall

They hung up when I answered.

June 4th, 2007 wayne

Same as other reports, the number showed up on my caller I.D. in both places.
I let it ring.

June 3rd, 2007 jf PA

Left a short vm with no message, just some background rustling noise.

June 3rd, 2007 Jim NJ

When I answere I identified myself as a detective investigating a homicide and asked them why they called. I got them to tell me their first and last name and that they were calling from Tennesse. I had them going for about 10 minutes getting passed up to supervisors. It was real funny to me not to them. Ha ha ha ha!
