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
Cincinatti Ohio |
cincinattiohio calls from 2 phone numbers:
Is this the cincinnati office of the IRS
Voicemail for the place says "Microsoft technical support." this is fraudulent, The Microsoft tech line is NOT a 513 number, an they will not call you. Best to not answer any questions or give out any information!
This actually was a callback from Microsoft Tech Support to see if I was happy with a recent inquiry. Problem is their CallerID doesn't identify them appropriately.
Apparently they asked my brother for "Becca" which is a nickname that pretty much only my friends call me. I am living at home with my parents, and I'm only a teenager. How did they get my number, and why did they ask for ME?
This number keeps calling and shows (800) 955-7070. But looking at number it comes up with 5135313690. Keeps calling and finally I answered and they hung up. Keeps calling about 3 times a day at odd hours.
UPDATE: I just reported them to the FCC. I am also looking for a way to report this to my cellular provider. Apparantly, entering your number for their Do Not Call list is meaningless, as I have done it 3x.
This is the first time I answered.. They do leave a message and, when you call lback, lets you "enter your number to be added to their "do not call" list. Yet, I still get calls. Today, I blasted the caller, saying this is the 12th time they called and this is after entering my number for the "DNC" list. Caller got cocky with me, saying it was his first time calling and "what do you want me to do"? I told him I don't want these calls anymore and that it is now borderline harassment. He gave me a half-hearted "I'll add you name to the list, have a nice day" and disconnected the call. We'll see....
It creeps me out when I get a phone call from the sam number over & over yet never a message left.
just got another call picked up but no answer..same last time too...real annoying
That's researchfm.com - they will pay $5.00 in Amazon gift certificates for every music survey you complete for them. Sounds like a good deal - I signed up. It's a crappy and lowdown way to drum up business but I'm gonna do it.
They called me 3 times today and when I answer, there's no one there. It's getting old. Not answering it anymore.
Have received 3 calls in the past 6 days. Answered once and no one responded. I was told that someone can put a bug on your line with this method and that you can reset the phone by removing and replacing the battery.
I put in a complaint with the do not call registry. I am tired of this phone number calling me all the time.
Called 6 times in one night. Some came up as private call and some with the phone number. This was all on 11-26-2008 between 7:59PM and 8:36PM.
keeps calling me but never leaves a message. several times a day
Answer and tell them you'll get the owner of the house and leave the phone for a good while. They hate wasting time because they could be making money with someone else.
This number does the same to me. Calls constantly at all times of the day. I don't answer it, too scared its a scam of some sort. They need to be put out of business. Apparently exempt from do not call list. WHY??? They are more obnoxious than some of the telemarketers I know.
I have gotten calls from these people before. They are not really doing radio surveys. They are just saying that as a pretext for gathering personal information on you. Yes, this is called pretexting. It is illegal. These people are criminals, just like the former chairman of Hewlett-Packard. Don't even answer the phone.
Call came through at 4:19 p.m. on 10/8/08. I was out and no message was left on my machine. Caller ID showed only the number and Cincinnati, OH
I get calls from them about once a month. They are doing a survey for radio stations. I have never had a problem with them, and their calls are always professional. They have me listen to bits of music that the radio station I listen to plays on a daily basis and then ask me how I feel about the song based on their rating system. In the even that I am unavailable to take the survey, they leave me alone until the next month.
what happened to a do not call list... have received numerous calls from them... did not answer phone... nor did they leave message...
I see this number on my caller ID a lot. Today, I decided to call the number back. A nice recorded message states that they conduct radio surveys ... blah, blah, blah ... and that they are exempt from the "Do Not Call Lists", but if you would like to be removed from their system, all you have to do is enter your 10 digit telephone number and you will not be bothered again. I tried it ... we'll see what happens.
It's Clear Channel that is calling your or is selling the numbers to this place. I figured this out because I entered my number into a Clear Channel owned radio station website. That was when all the calls started and they haven't stopped.
Let this be a warning... do not enter your phone number into any Clear Channel owned radio station website. I know it may be too late but people should know about this. I normally skip entering my phone number on the internet unless I have to and when I entered my number at www.thebuzz.com, I started to get many called from this number. At first it was only a few times they called and I answered the call, took the radio survey. But after a while I grew tired of answering the questions and stopped answering the calls. After that, I would get several calls a day from them and at its peek I got ten calls in one day. Now after nearly a year, I only get two or three calls a month. I wish they would get the message and stop calling me.
calls several times a week lately but doesn't leave messages
I received a call from this number on my cell phone at 9pm on a Tuesday night. I rarely answer numbers that I don't know or don't recognize, if it is important then a message will be left so that I can return the call. I decided to call the number back and got a recording stating that it was Radio Ratings and that if I would prefer that I no longer get any calls from them then all I had to do was input my phone number with area code. I did and it said that it would be removed so we shall see about that. Anyone else ask to be removed already? Was it successful? I already had to change my number once due to these types of calls on my cell phone, I really don't want to change it again.
My god 1168 calls reported on these jerkoffs.
Did not answer, caller did not leave a message
Missed the call, no message.
Called, did not leave a message on answering machine.

Interrupted an ongoing phone conversation
came up Cinciatti no message called at8:46pm
Called on my kids cell phone - which has been on the do not call list for years now. Will be complaining to Cincinatti Bell or whatever the service provider is as well as the FCC complaint site.
Called once, asked for me. Without acknowledging it was me, I asked "who is this?" and the woman hemmed and hawed and then said the name of the organization (I couldn't catch it). I said "this number is on the do not call registry" and she immediately asked "but is this (my name)?" I hung up.
Then, she called back two more times in a row. I picked up and hung up without speaking. After the third call, she stopped calling. Until the following day. But we weren't home, so they left an empty message and didn't call back again. I assume they'll call tomorrow though.
Multiple calls; never leave a message.
a guy called me for a survey about my favorite radio station. I said I've never talk with them before, but I took the survey. He just wanted to know my name and ecnithy...I didn't care at that time, but my boyfriend talk me about unknown calls. I'm really afraid with that even thougth I didn' give them any more information and I started look on internet to find more about this number.
Called after the standard hours of telemarketers.
Said amy young woman voice said MY Radio Survey. In my state, bullshit. 6:20 pm
No one on the line when I answered
no message left
Called my cell and did not leave a message
they just call on and off even when you you tell then dont call,there got to be a way to make then pay for harrasment
answer and they hang up. call twice a week at night.
just the # shows on id I call back no answere
They said they were Radio Ratings. The Ask what stations I listen to, Said I don't. They ask some personal quetions, name, age, race. Gave them answers not completely true. Don't trust phone surveys these days.
This same number keeps calling my cell phone. Will not leave message. I work nights and most of the time I am asleep when they call. 513-531-3690
Following up with the message a few comments up with the contact information for these chode-biters, here is Robin Maddy's contact info at Jigsaw (some lame professional networking site). Apparently this douchebag is the EVP of finance for "Critical Mass Media" the pukes who do market research for Clear Channel Communications (go figure), thus the ass-hats ultimately responsible for calling all of us. Also, here's a list of his prick co-workers at Clear Channel:
Google them, email them, sign them all up for porn sites and SPAM.
This number comes out of the town of Norwood in Cincinnati, Ohio. A skuzzy little area in Cincy where I would EXPECT to find ill-mannered, disrespectful mutants who would be happy to harass people over the phone daily for minimum wage so as to be able to purchase their crack for smoking while watching The Jerry Springer Show.
1 513 531 3690
I felt sorry for the person as I used to do phone surveys as well. She asked my name, age, race and if there was anyone TWELVE (which I thought was illegal-you have to be 13) to 64 in my household who she could also speak to. I said no and she quickly hung up. They've been calling my cell for MONTHS so I finally answered Sunday when it was free. Now I'm sorry I answered at all.
The phone rang with the number listed above and was from Cincinnati, OH. I didn't bother to answer the phone.
Bastards call me all the time on my cell....that shit isn't free....got their contact info....I blow this guy up like there is no tomorrow....sign him up on every list you can..lets fight fire with fire boys:

these people call all the time, they are so annoying! my daughter answered the phone and they were totally rude to her...jerks! all it is, or they say they are, is some dumb radio survey. i dont know why they would ask, or keep callin, cause i listen to the same radio stations over and over all the time...doesnt make sense...i just dont, or wont answer the phone anymore, and neither will my kids.
Has called 4 times w/o leaving a msg. I can only bring up the history of 2 of them on my cell. Jan 27th and Feb 27th at different times. Too coincidental. And I have my number on the do not call list!!!
I had ATLEAST 7 missed calls from this number within a 3 day span.
Called them back and got a recording, added my # to their do not call list. I guess we'll see if it works.
Didn't answer - no msg
Identified Caller as, "Houston Radio Survey". I was told I signed up to answer surveys for them via some email offer, so I complied. Once. They kept me on the phone for 30 minutes, and then started calling 4-5 times a day. I expressed several times that I should only be called during a specific time on a specific day, but apparently that information has no weight with them. It has been almost a year since I stupidly answered their survey call, yet they continue to call...everyday. I haven't even picked up the phone in over 8 months. If this was an ex-boyfriend, I'd file stalking charges. BEWARE!!
I didn't take the call because I was unsure of the identity of the caller. I called the number back and they allow callers to enter their phone number of which to remove from their list. I tried this, we'll see how many more calls I get from them and other telemarketers!
Left a message and sounded like 'Houston Radio Research'.
I called this number back and it allowed me to take my number off the list.
Microsoft Technical Support, usually calling back about an open support case. Despite the 513 area code, the caller is usually in India.
I got a call from (513) 531-3690 at 10:30 pm one night. I asked who it was at this time of night. they said a radio survey but I know that surveys and such are limited to before 9pm. They would not give me a name of the company calling.. the caller would not identify themself either. I hung up on them. I have had several calls since, another this evening. as well the caller id says unknown caller. I have not yet tried to call the number back.
I have been getting this call for months and months. It always shows up as "OHIO." Never leaves a message.
This is for a company surveying radio listeners... call the number back... listen to what the lady states... after about 30 seconds they ask you to enter your phone number so they can REMOVE your name from the list. Since they don't solicit or sell items, they claim they are exempt from the "do not call" registry. I'll post back when I have confirmed they have stopped calling. At this point, I'll do anything. They call morning, noon, and night.
called and hung up
They call on Sundays typically...usually between 8 pm and 9 pm mountain time although today they called at 4:50 and 6:30. I never answer, they never leave a message.
Caller ID said "Ohio" didn't leave a message.
Ever wonder where drug addicts, prison parolees, and newly released mental patients go? They become debt collectors....oh.....that's why they're BRAIN DEAD DIRTBAGS!
The number came up on my cell phone, I didn't know the number so I didn't answer but I don't like people like that calling my cell.
Called my cell phone and hung up when I answered
Just calls my cell phone- no message.
called twice in 5 minutes - I didn't answer - didn't recognize the number
Called around 8:45 p.m., I didn't pick up and they didn't leave a message.
This link has a thread about the number:
they told me they are doing a survey for colorado radio stations. don't know how they got my number since my phone is on the do not call list.
Called about radio surveying. They call atleast twice a week..
I called the number and got a recorded message. They identified themselves as "Radio Ratings" and report to be collecting consumer data for various types of clients. They will report back to their clinets with information so they can best serve "consumers just like [me]. How nice. They claim to be exempt from US DNC list since they are not selling anything. However, they will allegedly remove you from their call list if you enter your phone number when prompted.
this is the first time i've gotten a call from them i think... Why would they be calling random people from different states? I think there should be people who track assholes like these and do something about them.
I called the number back and there was a recorded message that said this business was exempt from the 'Do-Not-Call-List. There is an option to enter a telephone number to remove the called number from their list. I entered 513-531-3690.
Didn't say anything. Just hung up....
They call about twice a week. They hang up when I answer and when the machine picks up. It seems as though they're only interested in validating the number, or verifying what times I'm home.
Claimed to be exempt from Do Not Call List because "are not selling anything."
I have been receiving these calls for several months now. They call in the morning, afternoon and evening. They do not leave a message and if you pick it up they hang up. I left a complaint on the fcc website but I seriously doubt they will do anything about it.
I received a call from (513) 531-3690 at 8:52pm on 12-6-07. No Voice Mail was left by the caller and when I called it back, an automated system announced/identified itself as Radio Ratings.
I am so very sick of these f____ing people calling my house and hanging up, and they are always chewing very loudly that slam goes the phone. This has been going on endlessly for a couple of years. Geesh.
These people call constantly.. every day, several times a day, all different times. I don't answer, and they never leave a message.
More than likely this "Ohio" telephone number is owned by a firm that has been hired to automatically call pre-screened would be consumers to find out what time of day they are home and by their telephones.
In this manner, they ("OHIO") can forward this information to the firm that they are actually hired by.
That firm is probably a telemarketing group that will try to sell you their products.Or perhaps it could be a survey company that has hired "Ohio". Just a guess. That way "Ohio" is off the hook as being labeled as a telemarketing bunch of jackasses which they are to us anyways.
Where is the government when we need them to help us from jackasses like these?
DON'T ANSWER THE CALL.
The URL was stripped from my previous comment:
If this is Arbitron, explains why they can legally call, and adds that you can ask to be on their "opt out" list:
> Does Arbitron call households that are on state "do not call" lists?
> In a word, yes. Many states maintain "do not call" lists, and it is a violation for telemarketers to call these households. However, there is an exemption for legitimate market research. Arbitron does maintain an "opt out" list of our own, and we also use the "opt out" list of one other organization. Otherwise, we will call your household if your number is part of our sample.
I recently entered a drawing at the Home Depot and have recieved calls from at least 3 survey groups since. This is the first from this group. Hung up on them.
this number calls my landline at least 3 times a week. i never answer.
hung up, no response to my greeting
I seem to be online every time they call, and they won't leave a message on Callwave, they just hang up.
Kid you not, this number calls 15 times throughout the day, back to back calls about 3xs and the rest seem to be by the hour. Have never answered.
Radio Ratings/Surveys (exempt from the DO Not Call Legislation because they are not selling anything). Listen to the message and enter your telephone and they will remove your number.
Called last night and today already. No message left, just annoying. Further research I found this: www.timezonesforpcs.com
they called and didn't leave a message, this is the second time they have called in two weeks
This number calls me repeadtedly. I haven't answered in months and they still continue to call. I'm about to get fed up with it and report them.
yeah they call my house at 11:00 at night. wakes up my kids every time...
In addition to radio surveys they appear to work for collection companies. They started calling after I stopped answering calls from 2 collections companies who were looking for someone I never heard of. They may keep calling to document when you are home or if you answer, ask you questions to assist the collection company. Whatever you tell them about yourself and household will be shared.
Found out a a while back that this call was from Arbitron Radio. I called the number back and a recording claims they DO NOT want to bother us. If we punched in our phone number they would immediately remove us from their calling list. Well, apparently they have short term memory because they're calling me AGAIN!
called and asked me to do a radio survey. They asked me what radio stations I listen to and then played music which I then I had to rate, unfamiliar, no opinion, like, don't like, favorite. it took about 10 minutes.
THEY HAVE CALLED SEVERAL TIMES OVER THE PAST WEEK. EVERYTIME I ANSWER THE PHONE I TELL THEM THAT I AM NOT INTERESTED IN DOING THEIR RADIO SURVEY AND NOT TO EVER CALL ME AGIN. OF COURSE, THEY STILL CONTINUE TO CALL. THIS LAST TIME I ASKED THEM RADIO AND TV SURVEY QUESTIONS INSTEAD OF THEM GETTING TO ASK ME. THEY GOT UPSET WITH ME AND HUNG UP. HOPEFULLY, THEY WON'T CALL AGAIN.
they want to do ratings on local radio stations - as i listen mainly to christain radio, they don't want to talk to me
I received a call from this number as well. Just the number appeared and since I didnt recognize it I did not pick up. I see that it has appeared for people have been told that it is a radio survey. If they truly are doing a survey for research, they should only call three times. I work in market research and when we make calls, we leave a message and then usually do two follow up calls with no message. If we still have no response we consider the number to be dead and dont call again.
This number rings our phone nearly every day! What can we do about this abusive intrusion?
They call between 7:50pm and 8pm while I'm at work... I don't know anyone from this area code so figure they can leave a message if it's important, they never do....
Since people are saying it was a "radio survey", I can only think it is because I had won something from my radio station recently. I provided it to my local station, but I assumed that would not be given out (yea right). They called 3 times on a Saturday. I never picked up but it's annoying. I was curious as to what this number was and I googled it. Thank god I found this site. So, if you have provided your number to a radio station or something like that, you will probably get a call from this number. It hasn't happened again, but I wouldn't be surprised now if I receive another call.
Called and hung up
Keep getting calls from this number......at least 3 per day...called it back and it says they take surveys. They are not soliciting so they are not touched by the National Do Not Call law. You can enter in your phone number to have it removed from their call list. We will see if it works.
very annoying... I keep getting this call, no one answers.
JACKSONVILLE RADIO RATINGS, WHO I USED TO DO SURVEYS FOR, BUT AFTER THE 5 CALLS A DAY THAT HANG UP WHEN I ANSWER, I HAVE REMOVED MYSELF. WHAT AN ABUSE OF SOMEONE BEING COOPERATIVE!!
I called the number back. The message says they are a radio survey company. They do not sell anything.
Called Austin, TX at 8:23pm, no message, no Caller ID (just out of area).
Two calls tonight on my cell. No message...annoying!!!
This number calls me 2 or 3 days a week. I missed the call the first few times, but since they didn't leave a message, I never called them back, figuring it was the wrong number.But they call multiple times a day...and I don't live near Ohio!!
Recieved a call from these guys.
Let me say that this company has been calling me for over a year now. The number has now changed!! The first time they called they told me they were taking surveys but I did not qualify since they already had enough entries from my "group". I did not recieve a call for months. Now they call me on an almost weekly basis. Back in August, they called me at 1030pm, an inappropriate time in any case, since I work shift work I answered the phone, told them I was at work and to stop bothering me with their damned calls!
They didn't call me at all in until today.
No one was there when I answered. I blew a raspberry into the phone, said inappropriate words, and hung up the phone.
Now that I read here this is the radio survey, I am sorry I did not pick up the phone.
I have done two of these surveys in the past and truly enjoyed taking them.
Next time I see this number, I am picking up the phone.
Will comment again if not the survey I did previously.
Again!! I've asked 3x now to be put on their Do Not Call list. They say they are calling from Mix 100.7 in Tampa FL, to encourage me and my friends to sign up for a contest to win $500. (The caller, to her credit, was very polite.) I asked again to be put on their Do Not Call list. I also called the Mix 100.7 promotions person and left a voicemail asking how I can get off her list.
Again! I have previously asked this company not to call me. They just called again.
Is there any way to help put these guys out of business?
They call and say they are from a radio survey call late at night and at least 4 times a week. It is fake!!!!
Here's some good information for everyone:
This number has called us for months now, multiple times a day, everyday anytime between 8am and 10pm.
I picked it up once, took their survery but that didn't stop them from calling again.
I picked it up several weeks later told them I wasn't interested in taking their surverys anymore and asked that they remove our number from their call list. It didn't work.
I also called the number back and put in our number to have it removed automatically, that didn't work either.
We're also on the do not call list and today I put in a complaint about this number on their site...donotcall.gov
We're so tired of this number calling us. If they continue to call I'm going to file a complaint about them each time they do.
don't know who it was. no message.
Just tell them you work for a radio station - it's worked for me in the past.
Always aking for my husband about a radio survay.
Saw this same # on my CID as well numerous times, especially last night; they called twice while I was on the phone long distance important call. When my husband answered & asked the woman on the other end at this Radio Ratings Survey place to not call so late (9:00pm) because of the fact that we have a 10 month old baby who goes to bed at 7 pm, the woman was very rude & became quite sarcastic towards my husband. My husband became very irate & asked to speak to the woman's superviser whom also was very sarcastic with my husband. She was very, very unprofessional & this company should be put out of business do to their rude acts!!! If you wish to be removed from their call list, simply call the phone # back & you will hear a recording that states what their company does & if you wish to be removed from their call list, just enter in your phone # once the recording stops playing. We did it just last night, so we will see if these calls truly stop. My husband asked to be removed, but the superviser gave him a very hard time! They say that they were with the Hartford Radio Station Surveys
They Keep calling me and i ask them to take me off the call list and to stop calling me and they dont stop calling.
Have recieved many calls from this number. As soon as I pick up they hang up.
Hung up on us without saying anything.
this number keeps comming up on my caller id and i have no idea who it is and how tey got my cell number but they did
Did not answer since I didn't recognize the number. Called 3 times in 4 hours
often calls but never leaves a message and I don't answer
Big Jon is right; these people are harmless. I know we've got to watch our backs this day and age but holy smokes, some of you people are PARANOID. This company has no ties to the government, collection agencies, and they are not tapping your line....however, they are annoying as hell. They've called me up to 8 times in one day and I've asked numerous times to be taken off the call list. However, I do find that I can keep them from calling for a week or so when I just hand the phone to the nearest animal or toddler.
Called and spoke to my husband. Said they would call back...hope they do not.
If you call the number back you can add your name to a do not call list
These people are harmless. They do surveys for radio stations, and assist them in creating playlists for local stations. When they call, I help them with the survey. You listen to short song clips, and tell them if you like them, or hate them, and they provide that info to radio stations in your area based on your listening preferences.
caller id says: Cincinnati, ohio.
Hung up when I answered.
I received a call from this number on an early evening week end day.
I agree with one of the previous posters. This number is associated with a COLLECTION AGENCY. If it's any help to anyone, I was recently served court papers from ASSET ACCEPTANCE LLC. They're trying to collect on a very old debt which is no longer collectable as it is beyond the statute of limitations for collection. FYI one should always show up at the courthouse for something like this. Especially if it's an old old debt that is legally no longer collectable.
called today, i reported them as im on the do not call list
Call the number and enter your own telephone number to have you removed from the list.
These people call all the time. After about the 10th call, my husband finally answered their stupid survey. They called us again today asking for my husband with the same survey. I told them to stop calling us and was told only my husband can tell them to stop calling since he's the one they were asking for. What idiots are running this company? I filed a complaint with the FCC, regardless if their exempt from the DNC list. This is a form of harassment and they are a menace. Who honestly wants some annonymous idiot calling them in the middle of the night to answer a stupid survey?
I have had several calls from this number and when I answer, they hang up. Annoying!!!
I am pretty sure these scumbags are working for collection agencies. They verify that they have the right phone number so that they can subsequently sick the heavy duty assholes on you. The telephone system is antiquated and stupid. Phone numbers are passe. We need a system that allows called-party control so we ONLY get calls from those we whitelist, NEVER get calls from blacklisted callers, and others have to jump through hoops that are too arcane for computers to navigate. Write to your PUC, Congressman, Senator and ask them to pass legislation requiring telecommunications carriers install and offer for free an incoming call control feature. We won't get it as long as everyone keeps taking this crap, and the solicitors keep the government in their pockets.
My mother gave them my cell #. they call too much for radio surveys.
i pick up they hang up happening more and more getting tired of it might have to make a trip to there location and trust me they dont want that!!
Missed call and didn't leave a message.
They've been calling me daily for a long time. After 3 times today I decided to call back and they had an automated way to remove you from their list. Hopefully it works. I did find it funny that their message is basically just about getting them to not call you anymore, also very condescending, with all their talk about not having to obey the do not call list...
Asking way too many personal questions. Wanted to know my age group. Filed a complaint with the FCC.
you can call back and get your number removed from their call list
THIS IS PISSING ME OFF. this stupid number keeps calling me constantly 3 times a day. =.=;;
They've called many times but hang up when they get an answering machine.
They called 8/27/07 at 5 pm...close to dinner hour, if course. I don't answer numbers I don't know and they left no message when machine picked up. Caller ID said 513-531-3690 Cincinnati, OH. What can be done to stop these kind of annoyances?
Called and hung up. When i called back, i got a message explaining that they were a "survey" thing and did not sell anything, therefore were not included in the do not call act.
called 8:27 pm then hung up
I answered the phone but no one would talk on the other end.
check out this website on telemarketers:
My mom just called me from home but THIS number showed up NOT my HOUSE number..bizzare
Someone needs to MONITOR this company. As in don't call me!!! Will BLOW my whistle in the earpiece if you call again
This number calls my home daily under a UNKNOWN listing. Normally, when I do answer, they hang up. They never leave a message. Once I answered when it said Radio Survey. She asked me what radio stations I listened to, then went off on my shopping habits and income. I said bye and hung up. Today, they called back under UNKNOWN and I answered. A man told me they were trying to make radio stations better for the listeners. I asked if all he was going to ask me about was radio and he said, well maybe some other things to better know the listening audience and it would take 8 minutes. I said bye and hung up and they proceeded to call back 5 times in a row withing 2 minues. I called the number back and got a recording that first told me they didn't have to abide the no call rules or soliciter rules and could call any time wihtout consequence. Then it let me enter my number to get on their don't call list. We'll see what happens.
Got several calls from this asking me to do a radio survey. They call several times a day.
All you guys have to do is call the number back and add your number to be removed from the Radio Surveys. I just called it back and since they aren't selling they can keep calling. Its your choice to remove YOUR number from their list.
Nobody answer. Just a noise.
i have received a call from them 1nc or 2ce a month. They never say anything and just hang up
Caller ID hit 8/14/07
it sounds like radio ratings. it is a survey company. as with all survey companies ask to be taken off thier list. and the best way to do that is to ask or demand a supervisor
keep getting calls from them. they are some radio survey compan like others have said. very annoying
ive been getting around 1-2 calls from them a day for about 6 months. i cant get them to stop! messed up
We've received several calls from this number and no one is ever on the line. Now we don't answer.
Not even from Ohio; live in FL. Called me. Left no message. Unsure. Lame-os.
This number called and no one spoke and then hung up. I called back and it was recording about a company called Radio Ratings requesting survey information.
My phone rang just as we were starting the grill for dinner. I was on duty that night so my heart sank when the phone rang, thinking I would be missing dinner with my family. Imagine my irritation when there was dead air on the line!!!
They seriously have called me for the past few months about 5 times a day. I answered this weekend and they said it was a survery, I told them I was busy and take me off their list... that didn't happen. I just try to ignore them and don't answer... still annoying though
Everytime this number calls, they dont say anything and I hang up on them. Then I get another call from an unknown number that hangs up on me. It has happened that way every time I got a call from this number and its been going on for months!
Caller ID hit 8/6/07
Hung up as soon as I answered.
If you call them back as of today. They will (according to the recording) remove your number as a courtesy since they are exempt from the DNC list.
Received a message that this is radio ratings. They said that you can remove your name from their list by entering your phone number. Since I do not know who is calling, I am not doing that. Hope this helps.
PS They said that they are not soliciting and are exempt from Do Not Call
Did not answer
Wes indicates that the callers are indeed survey takers. The law says they are exempt from Do Not Call restrictions. I've done telephonic surveys (not telemarketing, but legitimate surveys), and the common instructions are that you don't bother leaving messages, just go on to the next caller.
My suggestion is simple. Answer the phone when they call. Listen politely for the introduction, and then say (a) "yeah, sure, I'll participate in your survey," or (b) "well, now's not convenient, can you call back later?" (and they will), or (c) "thank you very much, but I'm afraid I'm not interested in participating."
Either a or c gets you off the list for that survey; b gets you a call back when you want it.
Sorry, folks, but lots of these surveys have a place in life. (Of course, one must be on the lookout for scammers who claim to be conducting surveys ... but then again, a survey about credit card numbers or bank numbers is pretty much a giveaway, isn't it?).
This "survey company" as they identify themselves when I've called the number appearing on my caller ID, also indicates they will remove your number from the list if you enter it on your phone. This is all automated. I'm not biting....yet. I'm hoping the just GO AWAY SOON. They've been calling for the past 5-7 days as many as 3-5 times a day, and I will not answer. They don't leave a message on my voicemail. I'll have to decide if I want to enter my phone number (don't they already have it?) to TRY and get rid of the calls. UGH....unbelieveable!!!
I did radio promotions, not quite like the one you describe, they are permitted under the DNC law. Only if you are actually sell something are you required to follow it.
This could be radio station researchers, so if you listen to country music in Nashville, take it.
Some of these promotion are 'secret listener' promotion. Ever heard someone's name called out at about the same time each day? They were called in this fashion, and signed up. They listen for their name, and if they hear it they have to call back anywhere from a few minutes (promo often ties to the frequency) to 30 minutes. If you hear your name and call in, you win from $100 to $1000.
A variation is the 'trip a day' promotion, done by smooth jazz stations promintently. The difference here is that you win an actual trip.
These are legitimate. FCC rules require there to be an actual prize and they must follow the rules given to you or in the complimentary email they may offer to send you.
They are of limited duration, usually only a couple of months, during key ratings periods. Sometimes they will let you know you are in the running for it at a later promotion when it runs again.
phone rang ... i said hello ... they hung up!
this number keeps calling me and it is getting on my nerves. I don't answer to numbers that I do not know. I just want this number to stop calling me.
most of the time they either hang up when i answer...apparently they don't check the do not call list OR listen when you ask them not to call back.
Let's try this. Contact your local member of Congress that's up for re-election and scream at him that if he doesn't get something done, that he is going to be out of office in a year just like Georgie Bush !!! Tell him you HATE Republicans that allow this sort of thing to persist !!! Make yourself heard in Washington and maybe someone there will get off their butt !!
If you call the number back, there is an option to enter your phone number to have it removed from the calling list.
Called but didn't answer
I didnt recongnize the number so I didnt answer it and just googled the number and this website showed up.
Very rude! Asked very personal questions and i am a minor!
I reported them to www.donotcall.gov
called and left no message
CID said "OHIO". They hung up as soon as I answered.
I live in Evergreen, CO. Just got a call at 8:24 PM.
Called tonight. No message left and we won't pick up for a number we don't recognize.
Didn't answer because this was the 5 call from the same number and the other times they said that they were doing surveys.
Said that he was would like to do public radio survey for someone 25-34 years old. He asked if he can call back at 6 p.m. tomorrow.
calls and never leaves a message. Shows up as unknown
Asked me Age, Race, First name & Last. Aked me what radio stations I listen to.
they called me today and i searched for the number. when i came across this i realized this number used to constantly call my friend with surveys. i answered her phone and asked them to stop calling and they did. so try that!
They called me 3 times in 24 hours, 2 of those times within half an hour. I never heard my phone, so I didn't pick up, but they never left message. Just the number came up, no ID.
My CID said Cincinnati, OH. I answered at 3:02PM and they hung up.
Some fruit doing radio research.
Multiple calls throughout the day 07/14/07
Called 4x no messages. Annoying. Shows up as Cincinnati, OH.
I wonder if this is like a conspiracy-theory-like situation...
Like the government is behind this or something creepy...
PS. Does anyone know how they got on their calling list?
They say they are exempt from the do not call list. YOu can give them your number and they say they will take it off. They probably sell it to other dumb fucks just like them.
These idiots called my house, and as I saw that I didn't know the number, I refrained from answering. It went straight to my answering machine, which they hung up on. Hey, if you're not going to leave me a message, you're not worth talking to. I looked it up here and saw that the number goes to some "Radio Ratings Center". Hmmm. I read about this in a magazine.
I think next time, I'm going to answer the phone in the manner that Anon specified, except instead answering in Spanish, I'm going to creep them out by answering in Latin. Wonder how they'll like that....?
hey ok. got a call from them tonight. i called back and got a recording. it says they are exempt from the do not call list because they are not soliciting anything. they do, however, go on to say that if you want to not be called by them anymore then type in your 10 digit phone number. i did and the recording said it was removed. done.
they ask about what radio station am and fm your listen.
also they your name, last name, age, race, etc etc.
i stop to give more information.
Showed up on my caller id, so far more calls from this number. I'm on no-call, hope someone in authority is looking into this.
The called my cell phone 3 times on Sunday and when I answered once they hung up.
they do a survey about the radio and continuously call you, subjecting you to the same survey over and over should you try to answer it. if you call the number back you can enter the your number and it should remove you.
they say on the recording that they are not telemarketers and do not have to abide by the do not call list.
I pick up the phone, then answering machine after a guy answer and I ask him what's your call. This number was listed in do-not-call list. After that he hang up.
Called 5 times in past week. I don't answer the phone for numbers I don't recognize.
They call me at least 3 times a day and when i have answered its dead air, they call and call and call and it drives me nuts!
Said they were doing a survey on radio. Told them no one listens to the radio and hung up.
He asked for my wife by name saying he was with a radio survey: I said this is a 'no call phone number'. He said that's OK I'll call back and try again, completely ignoring my words. It's like a home invasion, very intrusive and arrogant.
No message left
This number calls repeatedly, at all hours of the day. I have told them not to call, by calling them back and entering in my phone number, as the recorded voice directed, but they still keep calling. My husband even tried speaking to someone who called, and then hung up while he was telling them not to call again.
I get several calls a week from this number. In fact, got 2 today. I never answer numbers I don't know.
Been calling since Sunday. Always hangs up when I answer. Tired of it!!!!
Has anybody here bought a car lately? I have been getting these calls ever since I bought my car threee months ago.
I get a call from this number at least three times a week and never pick it up. The caller never leaves a message either. I sent a text message to the number once and a default response came back "your message was successfully delivered to an answering service".
I have received calls from this company several times and have asked them to stop calling. They call at least once a week.
Came up as "Ohio Call" on the cid. I picked up and said "hello" but there was no one on the other end.
I have similar experiences with this number. They've caled numerous times and I've never picked up. The Caller ID states "Cincinnati, OH". Maybe it's Pete Rose calling for betting advice.
Called my phone at 10:30pm. No courtesy for people who have to work.
I don not answer calls from unknown callers, had calls from same number several times today today.
Filed a complaint to the National Do Not Call Registry. YOUR COMPLAINT HAS BEEN ACCEPTED
Thank you for filing your complaint with the National Do Not Call Registry.
Oh, and another note, they said they were from something like OMI research or something like that. Not radio reasearch, just OMI research.
They called again and the girl asked if someone between the ages of 24 and 29 was home. Yesterday, it was a guy and he asked for a female between the ages of 18 to 29. These people are freaky! They are also calling on a number that is not even my number. It is a different ringer number. Someone needs to shut these people down and fast. I did not appreciate them communicating with my child , either.
This is for a company survey radio listners.... they have called me off & on for the past four months & will not stop calling me!! Help!!!!
Man, the nerves these people and companies have. None stop calling. we have to report them, but don't know where to begin. all these telecommunicators.
I live near Pgh and just got the call from this number. CID says "Cincinnati, Ohio" and lists the number. On the voicemail, they stayed on long enough for the machine to pick up them hanging up the phone. So weird.
BTW, their recording does state that they are not under any obligation to adhere to the "no call list" law BUT I have asked numerous people from they organziation who have called to take me off their list. By not taking me off their list the 1st time I requested is AGAINST THE LAW!
they call frequently and never talk.
The key to this company is to NOT simply hang up. Actually, answer the call and request to be removed by a manager. I did it and they haven't called since. When you hang up you are just asking to get called back.
This number has been calling me for weeks now. I don't answer and they still call. They are calling my cell phone.. they called 5 times today alone!!
They have called before and it was the radio station others refer to. This time, they hung up when I answered. They are pissing me off!
Have called every night, sometimes more than once, despite the fact that I have told them to quit calling me. Keeping a log and will report to Ohio Attorney General.
i went thru arbitrons whole management list of people until i founda legit e-mail adress and i wrote and told them to take my number off their call list . i actually got and instant e-mail appology and a assurance that i was now on their "do not call list "and today i have had (0) calls from them as before all day long they would call.
questions attention: larry black
contact him and get on the do not call list
Somehow they got my cell phone number!! I've been getting alot of calls to my cell phone people wanting me to buy things or give them money.
I received nearly 3 dozens calls in 3 weeks & as many as 4 in one day. I have called the number back and get some message "sorry the number you are trying to reach..." I can't them to stop.
I answered the phone when this number called and asked to speak to a manager. I was then directed to someone named "Tasha" who promptly hung up on me when I started to ask to have my number removed from their list. What professionals they have there .
I haven't picked up yet(screening w/caller ID) but after reading all of the complaints here a surveyor for radio listeners sounds right- I just entered an on-line sweepstakes sponsored by a radio station yesterday and already have had 4 calls from them today. I guess I'm screwed like the rest of you.
I received this call and didn't know who it was so i didn't answer. i looked it up on here and decided to call back. i was only half listening to the message but they are "radio ratings" and are somehow exempt from the do not call registry. you can enter your number if you listen to the message all the way and they say they will remove your number if you type it in on your keypad. we'll see...
I got a call from this number this evening...showing "Ohio" on my Caller ID. I picked up the phone and put it down without speaking or listening to whoever was on the other end. I figured since it wasn't an 800 number, and it was long distance, they would be charged for the call. At least I hope so.
Why have a DNC list?
I still get unsolicited
calls like these.
They hung up and this wasn't the first time they've called. Caller ID reads Cincinnati, OH and that's it.
asked me what i listen to most, I said mostly I like to listen to my balls in your mouth, loser.
I continously get calls from this # they call at the oddest times also. I had talked to one of the people on the other end and they never ask any questions about Radios or radio stations. I had told them that I would not like to receive any more calls from them and I still get them. I have also called them back in hopes to get a manager and just get a recording asking if I wish not to receive calls from them then leave my info. I left my info and I am now getting more calls, this has been going on for about a year! I just don't answer my phone any more. I turn of the ringer so this wont wake up my 4 1/2 old son and school age daughters. I tried to report them and I can't get any where with that. I am also on the do not call list and I also have a private # so I do not know how they even got my # in the first place! Maybe what we should do is make a petition to make the do not call list a bit more broad or the phone company to do something to help stop this!
I have got calls from this number in the past ,they call ALL THE TIME!!They called again yesterday at 4:27 p.m.
i read all your posts about who it is ,so i called back this morning and got the recording, so i left my number to be taken off their list. Hopefully this helps,and they stop calling
Called, but i didnt answer.
Well they called me today and asked for just a few minutes of my time. 45 minutes later I was still on the call. Im not the type to hang up on somebody so I answered all of their questions. Dont be a sucker like me that is 45mins of my life I wont get back.
Here is the info on the company -

We've had this phone number call us at least 6 times tonight
I have been getting calls from this number for months, sometimes they call 5 times in a day, then they don't call for a few weeks. I finally called it back today and got a voice recording saying they were doing surveys and to put in my phone number if I would like to be removed from thier call list. I hope that works!!! They call at all hours!
I just called and had my name removed from their list. I think everyone of us should do this and really fill up their messages
Just go the call too.
Talking about dollars and winning sounds bogus
got a call from 'em -- hung up right when i answered.
so sick of them calling!!!!!!!!!!
they called on a sunday afternoon! didn't leave a message.
I called the phone company to block this number because they keep calling and hanging up. Phone company said I can't block it because it is long distance. I sent a complaint by email to the FCC and I recommend everyone do that. Maybe they can put a stop to the calls. Someone should be able to stop this
Call several times a day, almost every day, but hang up as soon as we answer
Call and hung up.
i have talked to these radio surveyers before, they play clips of music and ask me to rate them.
Caller ID, didn't leave a message
I got the phone calls 2 days in a row.
Nobody talked for the 2 times.... stupid call!!
Called, I told them we were on the no-call list and they said it's not a soliciter, but a survey which is ok.
Didn't answer. No message left
They aske dme if I would like to do a 5 min survey and i was bored so I said yes...15 mins later they are still asking away...I told them I had to go and they begged and wanted me to stay on the line so I just hung up...a year later the keep calling to do a follow up survey and they are annoying me every week. I even acted all sad and told them that the person they are looking for has past away and yet they still call
Me again. What do we all have in common?
They from Cincinnati, Ohio dude they called me and I'm from Hermitage, TN. As soon as I said hello they hung up whats up?
Just to let you all know, just re-dial the number back and listen to the recording. You can enter your phone number in and they add it to their own "do not call database"
SAME THING - GOT A CALL NO MESSAGE ON THE ANSWERING MACHINE TRIED TO CALL THE NUMBER BACK AND RECORDING STATED PHONE IS NOT ACCEPTING CALLS TRY LATER
They called once about 2 or 3 months ago and I did do the survey that they had called about and I thought that it was only a one time call. But they call at least 1 or 2 a week if not more and I had just been ignoring the calls until tonight when they called a 9:45p so I did what Tiffany did and it gave me a recording saying the same thing and to type in the number you wish to have taken off the list so I did and we'll see if they stop calling. They better because I am annoyed with them.
I've received this call several times, I never pick up on calls I don't know so I don't know if there was acually anyone there.
Calls about once a month.
On Caller-ID answering machine, no message - now blocked by number...
call everyday,today three times its been going on for weeks this is harrassment
I answered the phone but they disconnected without speaking.
Why should I have to call back to get my number off the list, this crap pisses me off@
I've gotten a few of these calls also. But, I'm using a caller ID blocker and the phone never rings. Also, I have it connected to an answering machine that plays ma bells "disconnected" tones and they think my number has been disconnected.
Called said name was Alex (I believe) and told me the call numbers of the radio station which I didn't write down. Said he was calling to tell me how to win a trip (I think). He got his tongue twisted and hung up the phone.
Okay, they called twice in a row today. What is wrong with them. I am annoyed with the phone continuously ringing, so i pick it up and then hang up. A mere few seconds later they call again. They must call like 20+ times a week. This needs to stop, I am going insane.
This number has been on caller id several times. They always hang up. I say give them a taste of their own medicine. Call them collect or something. Bug them like they bug us.
This number called me on a Sunday afternoon. I missed the call. When I called it back, the recording said it was "Radio Ratings", and continiue with a message of blah blah blah...
This # called. I missed it the call. They didn't leave a vm.
Called, no message. Hopefully they won't call again.
Have been on caller ID before but not for a long time. Called today while we were gone-no message left. Says Ohio call.
Same as most of you. Dont answer and they never leave a message. I have received 6 calls from them just today. I called the number back and got a message stating that they are not required to abide by the do not call list as they are not selling anything to you. Also, it gives you the option to enter in your phone number to stop the calls. I did, so shall see if that really works. The calls are really annoying.
These surveyors should be blocked just like telemarketers are.
I get calls from this number several times a day. I never answer and never get messages. After reading other comments I called the number back and followed the prompts to be removed from their call list. Hopefully this will work. Thanks everyone.
As other people have mentioned:
1. Being on the Federal Do Not Call list does not apply to survey companies.
2. If you call the number and listen to the WHOLE message, it gives you an option to remove your number - which I did and it worked. It took 30 seconds.
So annoying I had to research who the hell they were. 3 and 4 calls a night! Thanks to all here that pointed to the right direction.
Some guy coughed then hung up.
I didn't pick up cuz I didn't recognize the number...i googled the number and this site came up! wow i hope these people don't call me anymore.
CID: 5135313690,CB_CINCINNATI,O 04182053.
If you Google CB_CINCINNATI, you get.
THE BOLIVARIAN CONTINGENT.
Received call at 7:48. Left no message
If it's a survey, they really are exempt from the do not call list. I know, stupid, but true.
The best way to get them to stop is to answer no to the first 3-4 screener questions. They'll figure no one in your house meets their quotas and will take you off the list. It worked for me.
I got five calls from them last nite. I'm starting to think it is to listen to my ringback song. I just might answer one time and string them along so that they might be done with me after that.
this number calls me relentlessly- I refuse to answer!
their statement about the dnc is worthless. they called my cell phone 4+ times per day. i never gave them, or anyone else, permission to call my cell. that is a direct violation of the mobile marketing association (MMA) their lawyers have been notified.
called, waited for me to answer and hung up
I've received a dozen calls from this number over the past month according to my CID, never any messages on machine. The one time I did answer there was no reply from their end.
they are recording what they hear in the backround and correlate if you are listening to radio or tv
latest trick is recording you when you are on hold
use mute button if you have it
Showed up on my caller ID as Cincinnati Ohio, left no message. (imagine that).
Read below... they are trying to see just how pissed off you will get, thats what their "survey" is... they want to see how passive and agrressive you get. Its BS but in the end they know people will get mad and yell so in the end they win!

This number called me today and hung up on me when I picked up.
I don't answer calls I don't know numbers to. And it's real disturbing when I have added my cell phone number to the DO NOT CALL REGRISTY and yet I'm still getting calls at odd hours of the day
After reading past messages, I called the number back. The recording identifies the company as Radio Ratings and states they collect opinions on US Media markets. It also states the same as others have noted, that they are exempt from DNC laws b/c they are not selling anything. After stating they do not want to bother anyone they do offer the ability to enter your 10-digit number for their internal DNC list they keep as a courtesy. COURTESY? Do they know that word? I do find it interesting that most complaints involve cell phones. Also, has anyone who previously submitted their number to Radio Ratings DNC list had any more calls? I will let you know if I get anymore.
I've never answered, they never leave message. The same number calls 1 - 5 times a week. Sometimes, twice a day. I've filed several "Do Not Call" complaints, to no avail.
They're pain in the ass. They kept calling me every hour every day starting at 2pm till 10pm. Even though I registered at the Do Not Call list, they still keep calling. Hence, I've been filing complains on each time that they called at the Do Not Call List. Unfortunately, they haven't stop.
called and hung up for 3 seconds
They will NOT stop calling me! Calling started a couple months ago. The first and second time they called I just told them what radio stations I listen to so they would shut up. But that's the ONLY radio question they ask. The other questions involved my race and age. I stopped answering their calls after the second time. Both people I spoke to sounded like they never made it past the 3rd grade. My phone is on silent a lot of the time when I can't answer it throughout the day and they always call and just hang up. Then I get a ton of "missed call" alerts. I just called the number and typed in my phone number for them to remove me from their list. I sure hope that works.
call it and put your number in it will take you off the list
I just got a call from this number. I had to say "hello" several times before they responded. Then a male voice asked to speak to a male in the house between the ages of such and such. I said there was no one fitting that description living here. He then said, "Oh, okay" and basically hung up.
I just got my first call from this number on my cell phone. I don't answer calls from numbers I don't know. They didn't leave a message, so I Googled and found this site. I called the number back heard the prerecorded message saying they were Radio Ratings and they don't legally have to comply with the do not call list because they are not trying to sell anything. After the recording, I entered my phone number. Supposedly that will take you off of their list. We'll see.
They now have a recorded interface allowing you to enter your Number and be permenantly removed.
Call the # and enter yours!
When I called the number back after not receiving a message, I got a recording. Since they are not trying to sell us anything they are not under obligation to uphold the do-not-call list! Isn't this nonsense? How about I don't want to answer any silly survey, so don't freaking call back list?:-)
However they did call my cell phone
Answered took a small survey bout the music i liked
They have called me multiple times and each time I answer the phone they hang up.
Have called in excess of ten times in the last three weeks; no message is left
a ignorant guy called up and said "is there anyone here with the name of 25-50" my dad lied and said no
I called back and listened to the automated msg. They don't sell and are immune to "Do Not Call" lists but you can enter your number at the end of the message to be taken off their call list.
I found my name, and company listed below as suggested source for these irratating phone calls, discussed in this thread.
This was reported by "Dan 126.96.36.199... on 10/29/06." He states: "I did some research and I think I've found out who these people are. I found an Ohio based company that conducts radio surveys via constant phone calls. You can visit their site at www.audiographics.com They also sell the survey information from the URL www.rradionetwork.com."
Audio Graphics is in no way connected with these, or any other phone calls. Our surveys are conducted online, using a group of internet radio stations.
I'm not sure where your calls are coming from, but they do NOT originate from Audio Graphics, Inc. or any company that we do business with.
Just wanted to set the record straight.
Audio Graphics, Inc.
Chagrin Falls, Ohio
I don't know what is up with these people. They constantly call my house. They call like 15 times a week. It gets very annoying. They have called 3 times today, which is the most in one day so far, for the last 3 months. They don't ever give up, sometimes they hang up on me, and today they started asking my mother random questions. If they call again, I swear I will start yelling at them. SERIOUSLY .... GET A LIFE. But I decided to look up the phone number online, and apparently you guys are having to deal with these people too, we really need to figure out a way to stop these people.
i called the number back and i got a recording telling me that they were just taking surveys for the media. they can not be put on the do not call list, cause they are not selling anything. at the end of the recorded message, it said just type your phone number in if you do not want to be called any more
Everytime they call which is every night or at least three times a day. They say hello and i say hello and then they hang up..they are very rude and annoying..
Called and hung up! Rude!
Perhaps they are using one of those spygear devices that call your line and then leave it open so that whoever is on the other end of the phone can listen in on your home? I admit this is only a theory, but still.... those devices exist and are sold at the spygear type of stores. They sell them as baby monitors!You can listen in on your baby? Oh well!!!
Many calls from 513-531-3690. No message left. I looked up the radio station and it is a college radio station in Nashville, TN DIFFERENT #!!
Nashville State Community College
120 White Bridge Rd. • Nashville, TN 37209
615-353-3333 • 1-800-272-7363
I am getting dozens of calls every week from this number and I don't know who they are. No message is left. They just keep calling.
I've gotten a few calls from them; they come up as "Ohio" on the CID. When I finally answered them they asked me a few questions about my radio listening...seemed legitimate but they are annoyingly persistent.
The party hung up as soon as I answered.
Uggg...this "company" keeps calling me at least once a week, often it's a few times a week. I keep hanging up on them but they keep calling. This should be illegal! How can I file a complaint about their unsolicited phone calls?
Called me on my cell today, but I never answer the phone if I don't know who is calling. They didn't leave a message.
Called and hung up on my machine 2 days in a row.
Called and hung up.
the person said they were from research group and they said they were doing a survey on radio stations.
I receive 7 calls or more from this # every weekend. They say they are doing surveys but how many times you gonna call somebody about the same stuff?????
they call 2-3 times per week. ANNOYING. i've never picked it up, but once someone called while i was on another line. not sure who it was because the caller id won't work when your on another line i picked up and they said it was something about a radio survey. i'm assuming it was them since so many people are reporting that.
Im not sure who this is. ALl i know is my dad i never met lives in Ohio and this number is from there. I cant answer b/c of long distance charges
I answered once and did a survey that sounded like someone sitting with a tape player. I haven't answered since. They call EVERY DAY!
Well, I just completed my second survey with them. I am a music lover, so it doesn't really bother me. Maybe they will play more of the music that I like. I usually get angry about telemarketers calling, but this is about music, so I can't help myself.
WTF.. this # calls at least 8x a day and only rings once!! I finally caught a person and they hung up... Get A lIFE YOU fUCK STICK!!!
No voicemail left.
They keep calling my cell phone, I just let it roll over to voice mail, of course they don't leave a message
Called, left no messsage
I received a call from this number last night. A woman introduced this is a Radio Survey and asked what Radio Station I listened to in the last 7 days. I named the stations and then she asked me my first name, I told her that my name is not a common name and hard to spell. She asked and I said a shorter version of my name. Then she asks my last name, then I asked back, why do you need my name for a survey? Then she disconnected. Very suspicious.
called and before i could answer hung up?
O and dont try calling them back. Cause it's a machine talking to you and it has you enter your 10 digit phone number so that they dont call you anymore.
The called and started asking question's for some kind of radio survey. I answer the first question which was "what radio station do you listen to most" but then they asked my name and age and I hung up on them. Does anybody know what the hell they REALLY call for?
I did not pick up and no message left. call came to my cell.
Caller id show a few today simply from Cincinnati, Ohio...no message left.
Answered call and they hung up.
called and asked for Adrienne, called me 5 times over the weekend already, must be prankers. had an accent in his english
A woman say "Hi this is Christine, please return my call at 513-531-3690."
No Company info???
I answered and after a few seconds silence the line went dead.
I have participated in a few of their surveys, but they are fairly frequent in nature. The caller is always politer and professional, and if I have the time I do it. They play about 25-30 short audio clips and ask me on a scale of 1 to 5 how I like it. If you don't want them calling tell them and they will stop.
Have recieved many many calls from this number. Only answered once, no one was there. They never leave a message.
Came up on Caller ID as "OHIO". Why would they call me if they are a redio station survey> I don't live in Ohio and do not listen to any Ohio radio stations!
Was frequently called from this number. Didn't answer. I answered once, a while ago, and did ask questions about what kinds of radio stations I listened to. I answered them, then they hung up. Now they're calling again?!
Called-Hung up. Shows on ID as "Ohio"
513-531-3690 has called almost daily for a week now. we dont answer numbers we do not know, and they have never left a message. caller id says "ohio call"
This number calls 2-5 times a day and hangs up every time. It's getting old.
Someone from this number has been continuously calling me for about 3 months now, even after I told him to stop calling. Sometimes I'll have 7 missed calls in one day from him.
Do not call my cell phone number anymore. please remove me from your list.
They not only call my house, they call my previous residents, and hassle the current resident about where I am!!
If you've got XM Radio, that's how they found you ...
got a call from these idiots at 9:18pm
They keep caling me, too!
Called me a total of 15 times this week. 6 yesterday alone, but either don't leave a message or hang up when I answer.
Called my cell at 9 pm. This needs to be stopped!!
didn't leave a message.
they said they represented a collection agency for "FirstUSA MasterCard" and were asking for a previous tennant who no longer lives here
I've answered their call before and they do radio surveys. They play about 36 songs over the phone and ask you to rate them using a 1-5 scale. They are with Clear Channel and are listed with the Better Business Bureau (www.bbb.org). I DJ for Clear Channel and wasn't familiar with them but I looked them up on BBB.org before I participated in the survey. They randomly call people from a database they use BUT they only have your phone number if you signed up through your local radio station to rate songs (which I did).
I've also been getting numerous calls from these people. Called the number back and listened to a message saying they were specifically exempt from Do Not Call legislation because they don't ever try to seel anything. They then said that they maintain their own internal list of numbers not to be called, so I entered my number, and it was acknowledged as having been accepted. We'll see the results...
This number is for a radio survey company. They'll ask you for the names of the local radio stations you listen to then play you some snippets of songs which you have to rate from something like "Sick of hearing" to "Love it". I've done it a few times and it takes about 10 minutes.
They called me 4 times within 10 minutes. Never answered the phone either time.
Survey for household ages 18-54. Survey was declined
they keep calling every day
They hung up when I answered
HOW TO GET THEM TO STOP: If you call the number, there is a message asking you to enter your phone number, and they will stop calling you. We'll see if it works.
Get calls at least 4 times a day, Getting relentlessly annoying
Called them back- recording says they're a non-profit so they are not subject to the DNC lists. They give an option to add your number to their internal DNC list.
I don't answer calls from numbers I don't know, and they did not leave a message.
these fuckers now have my number!
This is the second time this has shown up on my caller i.d. as Cincinnati, OH.
got this call on my cell and didn't recognize the number. did not answer, no voicemail left. Searched the web, found this site. I >am< on the do not call list. I can't believe this!
Called my cell phone. Did not pick up as I wasn't expecting calls from 513. Googled the number and found this site. Excellent site, by the way. I actually received a letter in the mail earlier about a TV survey, claiming I had been selected and would be called. Don't know if they are related.
Called back and used their automated message to put my # on their internal DNC list.
It is for a radio survey. If you call the number back they allow you to key your phone number in to have it blocked. Which i did we'll see if they abide.
The call constantly and never talk to me. I'm ready to turn off my land line completely.
Number showed up on caller ID- I never pick up. Left no message.
calls all the time!
I get calls from this number on my cell but I never answer.
Does anyone know somebody in the FCC?
Caller ID said "Cincinnati, OH"
just called them back and got my number removed .. it better work!!!!!
they woke up my baby!!
Been getting a few of these calls .. Only rings 2xs then hans up.
1/22 6pm first call
Five times in the last three days. It'll never end, I'm sure.
First call 1/21/2007 4:01 PM.
CID: Cincinnati, OH
called 3 times within 1 hour finally when i answered they said they were doing a radio survey when i said you have called 3 times already he said i have not spoken with and hung up i am on a do not call list
I don't care what they are freaken doing. I'm on the freaken no call list. I hope that pass that supid law so the state can fine them MORE. They call everyday, 3 or 4 times an hour just for a freaken survey. WTF is wrong with these people. Don't they have better things to do with their time. How important is this survey that they call so much.
They called my cell phone but didn't leave a message when I didn't answer. I've been called from this nuber before, and I told them not to call.
As stated below this phone number is ran by arbitron. It is from doing online surveys. Here is a link to the companies m.o. www.project-apollo.com
These f-ing people need to burn.
These people are so annoying they call me 4-6 times a day and im tired any way i can make it all stop???!!!!!
I've had a similar experience as the rest of the posts. This number calls my house at least once a week. Caller ID says OHIO. We never answer calls from numbers we don't know. They never leave a message.
This company calls us EVERYDAY - we have caller ID and let the machine pick up - they never leave a message
Found out it's in Norwood OH, from the reverse lookup link on this page. They didn't leave a message.
The idea that these companies should be exempt from the "DNC" registry is absolute nonsense and a loophole in my opinion. They may not be selling you something directly but they are profiting from you nonetheless when they sell the results of their surveys to various radio markets. These kinds of companies continue to survive because most people do not bother to formally register a complaint.
No messege left on answering machine
If they are a radio ratings research company, they are indeed exempt from the federal DNC list, although they most likely have an internal DNC list. You have to say, specifically, "Take me off your phone list". They should comply with that internally, because they are only wasting their own resources be calling you after that point. They do not get paid by how many calls they make, they get paid by the number of valid surveys they return to whomever hired them. Nielsen Media research (The Television Ratings Nielsens) and Arbitron (The radio ratings folks) operate much the same way.
If you do converse with these folks, though, think hard about what they are asking you to do. They CAN'T tell you some things becasue it would bias a survey, but if you accept to do a survey for them, you REPRESENT 100's, if not 1,000's or even 10,000's of people in your local markets, and your input DRIVES what programs are kept on the air. The surveys are paid for by Radio stations, and marketing folks, to name a few...
Interesting stuff. If you want to learn more, google nielsen or arbitron and check it out.
Got this call on 12/14 at 8:17pm. No message left on voice-mail, annoying.
Call the number back, and after about a minute you can enter in your 10-digit phone number for them to remove you from the list. Hopefully they will.
just got a call from these people this afternoon, on a sunday! i have no idea who they are, so i won't talk to them. after looking at all these reports though, guess i'm in for a treat
I just got a call from them and called right back. they give a recording where you can enter your number and be removed from their directory. hope it works
If they are continuing to call you after you have requested them not to call again file you complaint here:svartifoss2.fcc.gov
VERY QUICK TO DO ;)
dec 7 2006
have called me every night for the last 4 nights. they call themselves south florida radio ratings or radio ratings and ask to speak to a woman between the ages of 21 and 50 something. when i tell them there is no lady of the house they hang up. rude rude people. i have added my number to their do not call list and they still keep calling. it is time to call the FCC and have them get on their case. their rudeness and arrogangce at radio ratings rates a 10 out of 10.
All you have to do is tell them that you work for Clear Channel th calls will stop
Haha, dude's called me alomost everyday for the past few weeks. I usually dont answer numbers I dont recognize but I picked up last night anyway. It was a radio survey wanting me to give my opinion on certain songs. I had fun with it for a couple minutes then the call was disconnected. Anyways, today the same number has called back 14 times and its only 2:38.
I called the number back and had my number removed from their list
this annoying number shows up on my caller id 3 or 4 times a DAY...and if i pick up they hang up. extremely irritating. filed complaint with FCC.
Sometimes calls 3 to 4 times a day. Don't know how they got my # but I use to take their surveys but now they call so often I just don't have the time. I asked them to take me off their call list and they still call. Now I just don't answer.
They called Sunday afternoon while I was out. It went to voicemail, the message was a bunch of clicks.
This bitchy old lady called asking for my sister. I asked what for and she said it was a follow up call.
when i was a kid, we used to make prank calls and i remember gtting in BIG trouble for it when the police showed up at my house!! WHY CAN THIS NOT HAPPEN TO THEM! IT IS HARRASSMENT...PERIOD!
These guys have called every day for about a year. I did the survey for them once, it was a pain in the butt. Worthless! When they call now, I've started picking up and hanging up just to get rid of them. Then yesterday they called ten times! I answered and told them not to call. They called twice after that.
Guess it's my lucky day; my first call was this afternoon; they got a blast from my home fax machine. Ross, how are you blocking these calls? I haven't listened to the radio in 20 years. And why should us John Q. Publics have to do their marketing research for them for free? Send $$$, I'll think about a survey.
Called quite a while a go be for, but started up again to day twice. Just says "Ohio" I have a call screener and programed the number in!, it will never ring my phone again!, it's fun to look at the logs once in a while to laugh at the calls that were dumped!!! You can program any Number to auto dump! it's wonderful!
I get calls from this number almost everyday. Sometimes 2 or 3 times a night. I have never answered and they always hang up on the machine.
get calls from this number all the time

Even after i told them that they were calling on my mother's funeral which it was they continuet to call and my boyfriend cussed them out and they continue to call.
They called at 8:30 at night asking for my husband. When I told them he was not available and asked that they not call back the operator became rude and argumentative. They refused to remove me from their list until they spoke with my husband.
1st call I've recv'd from this number. No msg was left on my answering machine. I'll continue to track this head ache.
These people are getting on my nerves. They hang-up when you answer. They call several times a day and weekly and they call at 9 p.m. I am on the do not call list what the heck is this crap with these people.
Same as above. Ansererd the phone, they stated they are a servey company with a few questions about the radio station in my areas. Now I get a call and immediate hangup every few days. Same as everyone else. Ohio, 513-531-3690. Would love some like Dan to continue to investigate.
I checked this out on BBB.org and they are a legit survey company, but with complaints against them. I answered the call and the guy fired 3 questions at me without giving me a chance to answer and then hung up. This is ridiculous.
I get phone calls from this damn number at least 2-3 times a day. I don't answer them. Thank God for caller ID!
called me twice in about 5 min, i didn't answer they didn't leave a message... stupid jerks
Called three times in very short period of time. Caller ID showed UNKNOWN NUMBER. Typical pain in the ass company.
Its so so so so brothes me. it gets on mt last nerves stop stop stop it RIGHT NOW!
Stop F-ing calling me, I get atleast 5-6 phone calls a week from this crap phone numbers. What a bunch of wussies for not even having the balls to stay on the line so I can rip them a new asshole
I just got a call from this number on my cell and since I didnt know it didnt answer it. I called it from my work number...it was a radio guide but it said it will keep a list of numbers for people who dont want to be contacted again...it asked to just type the number in. We'll see if it works.
Have been calling me for weeks...today they called me 6 times within 5mins, they call my mom who lives in NY too...very weird and annoying.
These people call me almost every day. Sometimes twice a day. They call and I let it go to the answering machine. I just get a busy signal that's recorded. Annoying as hell...
Whenever this number calls me they call themselves New York Radio Group. These are the most persistent telemarketers I've ever encountered. They call about 3 times a day, every other day in some weeks. This has been going on for over a year. My caller ID has not been very reliable and logged less than 1/4 of their calls. Apparantly, the do not call registry does not include "telephone surveyors".
They have called me a bunch of times in the past month. Never answer but they keep calling.
calling my wifes cell almost every day for past 3 to 4 months... number registered on do not call list months before that, does no good... we saved the number as ignore on cell and set it so that it no longer rings when they call... thats probably your best bet, i don't think their is much else you can do... thats a good idea if you have a cell with those settings, if you can't set your cell to no ring then i would try to get the number or blocked or change your number
they hang up on my answering machine
I have found that by answering and then telling the caller to "wait just a minute" and then putting the phone down until I hear the disconnect tone, works pretty well at discouraging repeat offenders.
I am so glad that I found this site! This company calls me 3-4 times a week, always hangs up on my answering machine or me. The one time I talked to someone, I told them that I wasn't interested and to stop calling but unfortunately that didn't happen. VERY ANNOYING!
Just comes up 'Ohio'.
Call several times a week, roughly same time (5:54PM ET).
I have gotten at least 4 calls from this number. No message is ever left and no one is on the line if I answer.
these radio survey companies are exempt from the no call lists due to the fact that they do not sell you anything they are similar to collection agencies as they are exempt from state and federal legislation.the only way to deal with these companies is to contact a lawyer and send them a letter.
Calls 3-4 times a day including Sundays. Will not honor my request to remove my number from their call lists. SOMETHING has to be done. I'm getting ready to change my number.
They call even will call at 8:55 right before 9:00 very annoying STOP calling man!
Bastards keep calling and won't leave me alone.
We've gotten 3-4 calls just in one day from this number. What is going on?
This number belongs to a company title Radio Ratings. They have been calling me numerous times over the past month, and today I called the number back after once again not answering the call. There is a recorded message stating who they are, what they want and giving some reasoning for them being expemt from the No Not Call List. If you listen to the entire message, at the end you are given the opportunity to enter your number in order to remove your number from their files and stop the calls.
I've been getting calls from this number a lot over the past month. Today I called it back and got a recording stating that it belonged to a company called Radio Ratings. If you listen to the whole message it gives you an opportunity to enter your telephone number at the end of the message in order to remove your number from the list.
This is so f*ing annoying. This number calls me all the time!!! I finally took the time to "Google" it to see what the hell this # was. I was SO shocked to see all the responses from other people getting the same calls! This is just plain ridiculous!
We get their phone calls too.
They called at 8:30 pm 10/31/06. The caller ID said unknown name and then gave the phone number.
I'm checking to see if there are any connections between Audio Graphics Inc. and Arbitron Inc.
Unfortunately, I can't file for a restraining order in my state for harassing phone calls. I may try small claims court. For a small fee I could at least have Ken served with papers and find out if it is in fact his company behind the calls. The hardest part would be to convince the clerk of the court that I should be allowed to file here vs. Newbury Ohio.
If anyone discovers additional information, please post it here.
Kenneth (aka Ken) Dardis is apparently the owner / founder of audiographics.com You can email Ken here: kdardis@AudioGraphics.com
I'm interested to find out if the phone calls come from Audio Graphics Inc. directly or if they contract out for the harassing phone calls. I talked to a supervisor during the last call from this number and he refused to give me an address or the name of the company he worked for. All he would give me is the "hotline" number 513-531-3690. I'll try and milk more information from the next survey caller.
Here is the contact information from the domain registration audiographics.com:
Kenneth A Dardis (440) 564-7437 15935 Thomas St,Newbury, OH 44065
That number is also listed as a contact number to buy the survey data conducted by this company along with this address:
Chagrin Falls, Ohio
I did some research and I think I've found out who these people are. I found an Ohio based company that conducts radio surveys via constant phone calls. You can visit their site at www.audiographics.com They also sell the survey information from the URL www.rradionetwork.com
They called me just a few minutes ago. They asked for my name and what radio stations I listened to. I answered because I figured there was no harm in aswering. But then they started asking me questions about banks and I was like wft this has nothing to do with radio surveys. Im worried because I gave them my name.
these people will not stop calling me. they call from morning up to midnight one day. also call from sunday to saturday. need to investigate and report them. charges should be file and violations
They call almost everyday. I used to pick it up and tell them I was busy. The number is now listed as 'Ignore' in my cell phone with a very low ring tone so I'm not bothered by it.
I'm not surprised that more people have this problem.
I say we go to New York
142 West 57th Street, and set their building on fire.
And possibly shoot their employees in the knee caps.
Vote for me in the next election.
I've taken real radio surveys and usually its someone nice, not from one radio station, but a company. They ask radio related questions like, "How often do you listen to the radio?" and "What stations do you listen to in an average week?" Then they play about 25-30 samples and I have to grade them. Ever since I told them to call my cell number and on the weekends, I'm getting calls (once a day) from this number or a similar number ending in 3650.
did not answer
Called my cell several times w/o leaving a message. Douchebags.
They have called at least once a day for the past week, but no one is there when I answer the phone.
just got a message from 513-531-3690, I pressed *69, which told me what number it was, looked it up, says cincinatti,oh....have no idea what this is...??
Get them frequently. Shows Cincinnati, OH. But when you answer the phone, there's no one there. ever. Stopped answering them but they drive me nuts.
I got a call from them today at 5:21pm. He was asking what radio stations I listened to in the last seven days. I asked how he got my number and he said I "Probably answered another radio survey somewhere." He then went on to ask a bunch of questions including my age and ethnicity. When I said I was not hispanic the call disconnected. I don't know if they hung up or if I lost the call (I have Verizon so they probably hung up).
They called here asking for my husband by name and when I asked where they were from they told me Cleveland Radio research. I told them we were not interested and screamed into the phone. They called back about 10 minutes later and I just picked up the phone and coughed into it very loudly. They're getting a really loud whistle the next time.
I got a call from this number today. I have seen it on my caller ID before, but never have a message on my machine from them. I called the number and entered my phone number to be removed from the list of numbers they call.
usually calls twice a day, every day of the week (including weekends) on my CELL PHONE. damn annoying!
They keep calling and calling and I tell them not to call anymore and they say that I am not allowed to request that that the person that they need to talk to must request that. Most of the time they just call and hang up it's like every day. Can anyone do something about this?
Calls several times a week. Always shows up as "Ohio".
They even keep calling after telling them to put your number on their do not call list. Assholes...
If you want these guys to stop calling you, tell them you just got a job at a local radio station and shouldn't respond. That will normally disqualify you for their surveys.
Phonecall is over in less than 30 seconds after saying this when I do it.
I have received these calls for almost a year now. They call all the time. I finally picked up on the first ring, and game them a ear full. It didn't stop, then my husband got on the phone and told them to stop harassing our household or he was going to get his lawyers after them. It has been 2 weeks and no phone calls. It is quite and WONDERFULL!!!!!
I am sick of getting calls from these people. I only have certain people I've given my number out to, and I refuse to answer my phone for anyone else. They call me everyday, sometimes more than once, and I am sick of it. I finally called the number back, and was extremely unimpressed to find it dealt with a Radio Survey. Exempt from the Do Not Call registry, my ass. How about STOP CALLING MINORS? Take the surveys and shove it up your fucking ass...
This is the second time they have called me. I put my number on THEIR "do not call list" but it obviously did not do any good. Didn't identify an area for which they were doing research, they just asked me what stations I listened to. They then asked me for my full name, to which I was like, "yeah right." I gave them a fake name and they ended the call. Very noisy in the background. the guy sounded really goofy. Something MUST be done about whoever keeps calling all of us.
dis dam things so weird, they jus calld an askd fo lisa but ma cellfone # isnt even registerd under ma name cus ma cell use ta b ma moms, y would sum radio station in ohio noe my cellfone #...?
Here's a thought....my phone will allow me to block any number I wish, but I know the phone company will also do that for you.
There may be a fee, but it would be worth it to stop those annoying rings!!
I got a Radio Contest call from this number today(9/27/06). They were calling for WSIX Radio in Nashville, TN.
Sooooooooooo sick of these people calling and hanging up on me!!!!!!
They call about 3 times a day, usually late in the evening. I have a recording of one person getting rude with my husband when he told her to stop calling. How do you make them stop, and if this is what they've been doing to lots of people, why isn't anyone doing anything about it?
I get the phone call every Sunday afternoon. I have caller ID and it came up OHIO. We answered it once and it was a music survey and we told them we were not interested and they keep calling. Our last phone call was 9/24
I first started getting these calls nearly two years ago. I took the survey and it was rather interesting, listen to music clips and rate them. They would call once a month or so. I then started tell them no as the frequency of the calls increased to once a week. I had bought a satellite radio and the in town radio station annoyed me. I told them this on a couple of occasions. For the past three months (at least) they have increased their calls. I never pick up anymore and have not since the winter. The past two weeks have been annoying to say the least, yesterday alone they called four times and today three. I called their number and added my phone number to their do not call list but we will see what will happen.
Caller ID shows "Ohio." No message left.
I just recieved a call from this number. I'm wondering who it is and how they got my unlisted cell phone number. I don't give it out, I have a fake number I give out instead.
Keep calling me too...getting annoying.
This number called me 8 times today! And has been calling for a few weeks now - I won't answer because I don't know who it is, now I know - it's no one important!
I always suspected that Ohio was a lame state. My suspicions have now been confirmed.
Damn it! They call everyday! I have told them to take me off and they don't. I HATE THESE KINDS OF CALLS!!! I told the lady I would do her survey only if she gave me HER home phone number so I can call her house everyday just to annoy her!
Didn't answer. I checked here because they keep calling back.
They call me all the time. mostly during the weekend. i answered the first time they called and took a radio survey. then they called again a few days later for me to take another survey. i said no thanks. but now they wont stop calling. i dont wanna answer again though.
Shows Unknown Name, I ignore them, I hate the time they call (after 8PM)
I've been receiving call from this number every night for 2 weeks now. Answering machine picks up and you can hear someone there. It's annoying.
Received 2 calls from this number today. The first at 5:00 pm and the second at 8:56 pm.
This number called my house two times in one day.
8/13/06 - 5:28pm
8/13/06 - 7:57pm
i got a call from this number. they used to call my house n i told them to stop calling. now they're calling my cell? not cool..and kind of creepy.
Called asking for our 16 yr old daughter!!??? Call was very fuzzy.
Since this is a 513 Area Code and not an 800 number, it's probably a long distance call to most places. I think it would be a good idea when the number appears on the Caller ID just to lift the receiver and leave it alone for a while. Since they probably have to pay for the call, they may not call back. Worth a try?
I have received a call from this number two times in the past week. I missed the call both times and when I called it back, the automated message says that since they are not attempting to sell a product at any time, they are not required to abide by the laws under the Do Not Call Registry.
Call came on September 11, 2006 at 5:35pm - we are in Pittsburgh. Caller ID only said OHIO
CID said "Ohio" picked up said hello and they stayed on line but never spoke. I hung up after 30 seconds. I was told that they may be collecting voice samples !
They called at 8:30pm. Told them I was a police officer and if they called again I would report the call for investigation.
I began receiving calls once every couple months at a previous address & phone number 3+ years ago. When I answered there was never anyone or any recording on the other end - just silence. I noticed my girlfriend was receiving the same thing with the same frequency. We have since married, and moved into a new home six months ago. We just received our first call at our new home, however, we simply transfered phone service so we have the same number as before. I believe at least one previous call had the last four digits of the caller's number as 3650, thus a bank of phones making the calls. Quite frankly, I've responded to phone survey's in the past, and don't mind taking a couple minutes to do so, but it's never gotten that far with these people - only silence. Heck of a way to run a business.
They have been calling for days and hanging up!!!
Lets give them a call ; )

This number shows up almost daily on my cid...sometimes two or three times a day.
Very Irritating. Call every night. Caller ID shows Cincinnati, OH
what do we do to get rid of these calls? if you work from home and take conference calls (and incoming calls) from usually "unknown caller"s (from a co's PBX), this is a pain.
These clowns keep calling me representing themselves as San Diego Radio. I have received the same answering machine when I call them bak but I have reported them to the Do Not Call Registry anyway. I plan to sue them for harrassment when I find their real name and address.
I've been getting calls from this number too lately. I don't answer calls unless I know who they are from, and they never leave a voicemail.
they have been calling me everyday for the past two and half weeks. i have absolutely no idea who it is, but i do know that the area code is from OHIO. i tried *69, but the operator said that i can not reach them by that method. I tried dialing that number but my phone won't let me. so in the end, i have no idea.
Consumer survey. Claim that because they don't sell anything, Do Not Call rules don't apply to them.
if you 'return' the call an ansering machine comes on and states that if you orally leave your number they promise not to call again. they allege they are a pooling organization.
Call date 8/31/06 @ 2032 hrs no name, Ft. Worth/Dallas - TX area
They hung up on my answering machine. Came up as Unknown Caller
Call and hang up all of the time
First call from this number.
CID shows Unknown Name. I've had 4 calls from this number, they never leave a message. Had one call from this number at 10:30pm. I'd like to call them and wake them up at night!
Call several times a day. It just says "Ohio Call" I never answer.
I just started getting these calls a short time ago. They called me the past two nights in a row, both at 7pm, and they also called on Sunday afternoon. I just called the number and it was a message saying they were Radio Ratings. They said they don't legally have to comply with the do not call list because they are not trying to sell anything. After the recording you can leave your phone number and they will take you off of their list.
Calls my cell phone ALOT back to back..I had 5 missed calls from that number on 8/30 alone!!!
Calls about once a week. Always displays "CINCINNATI,OH" on CID. Usually disconnects after a few seconds, sometimes a live person tries to start a "radio survey." I never pick up any more, and they never leave messages.
Can't I call them back:o) ha ha. I mean since I'm on the "do not call list", doesn't seem right that they can still call! Wish everyone would call them back and ask them 1,000 questions:)
This is becoming so bad that my wife has put a no solicitation message on our phone. Doesn't seem to work. This number shows up as Cincinnati but when you try to call it back it rings and then is busy.
Just said ohio call, will not leave a message, i reported to the do not call registry. you need to report them too so they can be prosecuted.
This is absolutely ridiculous. These calls have been coming in at least 3 times a day for over 6 months. I'm sick and tired of it.
Usually calls 2-3 times a week, I never answer, they never leave a message
Got this call on 8-26-2006. Caller ID shows "Unknown name" and the phone number.
My dad answered, thinking it was for a job, gave it to me. Someone on the other line said, "Hello..is this Emily?" When I said yes, the call was 'disconnected'.
The phone rang 3 times. I picked up and said "hello", whoever it was hung up without saying anything.
as i was on here looking up the number they called me again! i told them to stop calling... we'll see if it works!
This number calls about 3 or 4 times a week and I dont answer it. It is very annoying. I just registered with the do not call list. Hopefully it'll work!!
Called and hung up. Caller ID shows "Cincinnati, OH".
they call a couple of times a week on my cell phone. I answered once and it was radio research and i told them i wasn't interested. i have never answered again when the number comes up but they keep calling my cell phone. I am on DNC list for home phone but did not think it was necessary for my cell phone! very annoying. will try to put myself on their "do not call" list and see if this works?
I called back this number and got a recording. I believe they are a company called Arbitron and they do marketing for the radio industry. They allow you to state your phone number to add to their own "do not call" list. They give some bullshit about how they are exempt from the gov't Do Not Call registry because they aren't solicitors. What they are is a pain in the ass. I added my number. We'll see honor my request for privacy.
I just got a call (8PM, Sunday, August 20, 2006). They said they were "Radio Research" and wanted to do a survey. When I asked who sponsored the group, the person didn't know and asked if I wanted to talk to their supervisor. I said, No, and good bye.
Been getting a bunch of these calls listed only as OHIO and 513-531-3690 with the lasted one occuring today at 4:58pm 8/19/06
They call everyday almost. Called it back and they asked that a message be left if we did not want to recieve calls from them anymore.
These people keep calling my home on a frequent basis. Whoever you are stop calling! I have notified the US FTC and my local law enforement! Every stinking day! call after call after call! Stupid company has nothing better to do than solicit people who dont want anything to do with them!
I love how they say we aren't selling anything and thus we're not obligated to follow the do not call registry..oh yea how about you all go F yourselves
i get calls from this number at least 2wice a day I tried to block them off my cell but the company told me you have to get at least 50-100 calls a day to block a number the scary thing was they somehow interupted a call and this woman was on the other line screaming my name at the top of her lungs I hung up
They keep calling my cell phone NUMEROUS times I week. I never answer it because if I don't recognize the number you don't get answered. It's about to piss me off!
PAIN IN THE ASS!!!! Useless
The calls shows up on my caller ID as "OHIO" at least 8-10 times per week.
I ignore it and turn my ringer off. Wish I knew how to stop them from calling. I am registered on the Do Not Call Registry, but somehow the call keeps coming through. here's a typical week.

When we returned from vacation, there were about 8 calls from this number on my CID. OF COURSE, there were no messages.
called 8/12/06 10:10am az time zone. Left no number we are on the DNC list.
They have called my cell before - I don't answer.
They have been calling for months
These people have now called at least three times with their radio survey. They are relentless.
There is never anyone on the other end of the phone...they always hang up on me and when I let the answering machine get it...they leave no message.
Answered in Spanish. "Do you speak English?" Responded again in Spanish and hung up....they usually don't call back.
number on my cid. i hve elderly family members in ohio. this is NOT funny or a good way to do business.
CID shows OHIO, Only rang twice. Hung up before I could answer.
My CID said Cincinnati, OH. I answered at 1:48PM and they hung up.
I have recieved numerous phone calls from this so-called radio survey company and it's quite annoying and inconvenient. I don't answer the phone but it rings at inconvenient times so I would like to find out how to get rid of these annoying clowns.
this is a company called "radio ratings" and came up as "Ohio" on my CID. I called them back and got a recording after which I was asked to leave my name and number to be added to their Do Not Call list. Their message states that they are under no legal obligation to follow federal Do Not Call guidelines because they do not sell anything.
Usually calls 4-5 times a week for the past 2 months. Our caller ID shows "Ohio." The first two times, we picked up, but no one was there. Now, we ignore them, but they're damn annoying.
"Cincinnati, OH" called at 1:45EST Saturday 7-15. Didn't leave a message.
Got this call today. I have no caller ID but I *69'ed it and got this number. They hung up after they got the machine.
never responded, finally hung up
This number calls my home at least once a week. I do not answer, I figured it was a telemarketer...I am on a "Do not call" list.
Hung up after answering.
I've noticed these jokers on my caller ID before. Sometimes they show up as "OHIO" and sometimes they show up as "Radio Survey" They never leave a message. I'm thinking of calling them back incessantly. Give 'em a taste of their own medicine.
They hung up on my answering machine. Came up as Unknown Caller.
This number shows up almost daily on my cid...sometimes two or three times a day. When I do pick up, no one is there.
They hung up several seconds after I said "hello". I believe that number has called before with the same results.
This number has come up before, a couple of weeks ago, and they called about 5 times over a weekend. I don't answer numbers that I don't know, and they never left a message.
When I answered they hung up without saying anything.
This company says they are a radio station but then asks for information that, to me, has nothing to do with a radio survey.
THis number calls my home quite a bit and as soon as we pick up they hang up.
The caler began, "Hello, my name is Ryan. We're doing a survey for Austin Radio Research."
Caller said they do surveys for radio stations. They call every week. obviously they aren't doing surveys
This is for a company surveying radio listeners
