MRSI - Marketing Research Services Inc. Both my Hubby and I are signed up to receive invitations to participate in a Smoker's Panel here in Chicago. We get $25 cash and 8 plain white packs of no named cigarettes with numbers on them like "E5" and a colored dot sticker on the bottom (2 packs per color). We are given 4 sheets of questionnaires that we have to fill out after smoking enough of the cigarettes to answer a comparison likeness grading scale of 1-5, 1 being nothing like your regular brand and 5 being same as your regular brand. You have to grade compared to your brand you smoke such as: harshness, aftertaste, burn rate, if they went out the same or more or less than your regular brand, etc. After filling out the survey paper on one color, you call their toll free number and answer the questions by pushing the numbers that you wrote on the colored paper. After that call you will be instructed to "begin smoking the next pack".

This probably sounds really confusing to people who don't participate in focus groups like we do all of the time. Hey...it's what we call "Beer Money" AND they give you 8 packs o cigs for free! Hope this helps all concerned. Cheers!

Everyone...We too have been plagued by this group (MRSI) and I finally "think" I got relief by contacting my phone company, reporting the incident to our local police department and they will issue a subpoena to MRSI.

In the meantime, I contacted MRSI National Telephone Interviewing Center at 513-772-7580 (spoke with Tiffany) and she assured me we would be taken off the list. I suggest hounding them as much as they have us to finally get relief.

April 26th, 2013 Virginia MA

Called me today.. I asked them "who was calling" woman stated she was from a paid market research company and asked if I was a smoker? I said no, she said "ok" and hung up. They call daily.

April 6th, 2013 Dewd WY

This number 513 562 1300 belongs to MRSI of Cincinatti Ohio. If you see it on Caller ID, don;t answer or just hang up. MRSI does market " research" but they do it it with arrogance and indifference. They will call your number rlentlessly , but never answer when you pick up. When there is finally a rea person on the other end, that person is a total jerk. When you try to have a civil conversation with them and explain why you are angry at their constant dialing and intrusion into your phone life, they become hostile bastards. Therefore, theyc annot be a legitimate useful phone marketting firm. They treat the people they call like dirt. Don;t bother.

April 5th, 2013 SneakySiss MS

December 7th, 2012 Bill NJ

Several Calls per day for the past month. Used Block Caller function of my phone service to stop

December 5th, 2012 Bette CA

This is a market research company The DNC list does not apply to them. They used to be a client of mine.When you hear about polls and opinion surveys they have been conducted by this type of company. They are selling nothing to you.

I finally blocked this number after getting a few calls and no message left. They called twice today, Sunday, within minutes of each other. My Panasonic phone now gives them a busy signal but I wish I could leave them a message - "this number has been blocked."

October 22nd, 2012 Eric Silveira CT

If you feel that you have been victimized by MRSI's calls, dial their TOLL FREE number 1-800-729-6774, choose Option 4 for their Call Center, and give them HELL. This menace to persons in our society who seek privacy, deserves nothing less than HELL.

October 19th, 2012 dontbugme CA

they call my number every singe day, multiple times. I called them and the recording said to email donotcall@mrsi.com and they would remove your number from their internal do not call list.

These people, MRIS Inc. in Cincinnati, OH, have a Facebook page! Maybe we should post our displeasure of the annoying calls repeatedly on their page!!!! Just a thought!

March 28th, 2012 Resident47 MA

Judy, I'm ever so glad that I spend time here warning people away from mistakes which will harm them, just so yet more impulsive types can tromp in later and ignore that advice which is *immediately visible* on their arrival!

One more time, and that's it .... The name of this website is ''Who Called Us'', seen in large friendly letters on every page header. The domain name reflects this unambiguously. Your caller does not maintain this site or this web page. Your caller is not going to dutifully study random complaints here. A forum like this is strictly for call recipients to share their findings. THIS IS NOT a direct or private channel to the phone bank boiler rooms we comment upon.

You have very little room for complaint about unwanted phone calls when you cannot manage to pay attention to where, how, and why you are revealing personal information. Your data security begins in that couple pounds of fleshy matter you keep floating in your skull. Use it wisely and make better decisions.

they call once or twice a day for the last 3 weeks... why?

March 12th, 2012 Resident47 RI

I guess having a minimum fifth grade reading comprehension level ''does not mean anything''. Linked below are the rules which the DNC site *twice* coaxed you to read and which *you agreed to* when you registered.

Hangs up after the answering machine says its message. Called twice today so far.

February 15th, 2012 Denise CA

This number shows up on caller ID as "OHIO". Goes to the answer machine and before our recording even gets started they hang up. Funny thing, after I yelled at another telemarketer the other day.....now I'm getting this call. And they call up to 5 times a day, 7 days a week. I wish I could thank the person who came up with caller ID on our phones. I guess being on the National Do Not Call List does not mean anything.

February 7th, 2012 lb CA

gets a call from this number every single day!!!! can't get rid of them

February 5th, 2012 Darrell

Haven't a clue what they sell. Hung up after I found out was no one I know.

December 4th, 2011 BEAR SC

called at 239pm, asked for a person that does not [and never did] live at my house. I told the bitch this, she then said "Well, can I speak to whoever pays the insurance on your house or car?". I flat out told her, "THAT IS NONE OF YOUR G.D. BUSINESS BITCH!!" and hung up on her ass!!

December 4th, 2011 Todd A. WA

Told them to p*** off

November 13th, 2011 Mollee CA

Oh, darn. They hung up after only 3 rings. I was looking forward to picking it up, not saying a thing,
and hitting the # key 10 or 12 times quickly. That's how to get rid of robocalls, I've been told.

October 15th, 2011 Resident47 RI

I really hope those are not the actual personal phone numbers of Werthman, Payne, Stern, and Daniel. It is very foolish to publicize phone numbers and email addresses where any cut-rate data harvester can find them. I'm afraid ''FCKR'' started a bad trend in this thread. You all need to deliver your no-call requests to the actual caller, which does not maintain this site or this web page. To make it stick, it may take a cease-comm notice sent via USPS Certified with return card.

While I'm weary of the ''poor college kid'' argument from people like Idiot Slayer, it was a correct statement that surveyors are not salesmen, therefore exempt from scrubbing the federal DNC registry.

This number has called me numerous times, I finally picked up the phone and the person answered "sorry I have the wrong number." I asked who are you looking for? They answered, "I have the wrong phone number" then hung up.

September 9th, 2011 Nancy VA

This number calls at least 3 times a day and drives us nuts. We are on the "no call" list.

August 16th, 2011 Genie MO

This number calls at least 2 times a day, as late as 9:00 p.m., Saturday & Sunday included. Just started about 5 days ago. I have attempted to answer several times (to get rid of them), but upon answering I only get a dial tone/hang up. Never a person or message.

August 14th, 2011 Resident47 RI

I'd talk to the FTC, Chris. They're not happy when the autodialer of a business generates abandoned calls more than 03 percent of the time.

August 14th, 2011 CHRIS WA

When I answer the phone, nobody is there. I generally think that this kind of call is computer generated and that maybe 1 time out of 5 will I actually talk to a human being. So far, no human has come onto the line but I have been getting many repeated efforts from the caller to connect with my phone. Seems like a waste of their time to me and it certainly is a waste of my time!

April 2nd, 2011 FCKR TX

This number has called multiple times over a two week period. Never leaves a message. Not a great way to get in touch with me. Guess these companies think if they annoy you to death you'll relent and pick up the phone. Not me. Either leave a message or move on.

March 23rd, 2011 M VA

MRSI called on behalf of Anthem wanting to ask a lot of personal questions saying I would get paid after each battery of questions. Anthem confirmed they would not pay anyone who participated even though MRSI and letter sent out by Anthem said they would. The said they were looking for free research so they could make people pay for the results they got from the results. A total scam from Anthem. Anthem is nothing but a bunch of liars and cheats. After having serious problems with them, I told them in writing to drop my account and never to contact me again or use anyone or any place else to contact me. That demand was ignored. A mail fraud complaint was filed against them and the FTC was told of the harassing call from MRSI. Any further contact will involve the courts.

unknown, no message, 7:35pm Friday night; this number has been calling early/late for the last 2 days and will not leave a message.

February 25th, 2011 VKH NC

I am constantly receiving call from this nunber(513-639-2399) and I'm fed up with it. They have always hung up by the time I get to the phone. It annoying and distrubing. I'm not a well person and often the calls come in when I'm trying to rest. During the last week I've received calls from this number almost every day and many times before that.

February 25th, 2011 DCS MD

Survey company asking incredibly detailed questions about my family's use of tobacco products.

When I told her that nobody in my family uses any tobacco products of any kind, she said, "Oh. That concludes my questions for today. Thank you." and hung up.

February 20th, 2011 Dog WA

On Sunday the 20th Feb So far they called every day almost. Never get me as I let it go to message unit. They don't want to waste time, Neither do I. I'll send this to FTC as complaint, and each day they call, I will send another complaint. The people at FTC will get tired of the complaint too. Maybe they will investigate it then.

February 20th, 2011 NJ WY

Someone from this number calls me continually. I think it is a call center who can't take no for an answer when they try to sell something.

February 19th, 2011 Agent WA

IdiotSlayer; What do you mean showing compassion and calling us idiots? We know that telemarketers are just that--Creepy telemarketers. They deserve the status of DNC listing and should follow the rules. SO far they haven't. They continue at their mission, destroying the peace of many households and if you request to get off their list, they cooperate and give you a fake place to call to handle the mission. The game playing goes on. You were hard up for change and worked for them to make their mission continue. They didn't really appreciate you for any talent, just do the job-slave? They are sorry to pay you a measly worth. Did you get rich? Ha Ha.

February 18th, 2011 Dog WA

They call you to verify who you are, ask an imaginary question to show that really is your number and name. Once that is verified, your name goes on the calling list which later are purchased by telemarketers and off they go on a wild tangent. Neat way to get new folks telephone and addresses.

This is marketing research. They are not regulated by FCC Do not Call law because THEY ARE NOT SELLING ANYTHING. In fact, they often offer YOU money for taking part in research. These people posting things on here are UNINFORMED IDIOTS. I live in Cincinnati and used to work for MRSI. Help a college kid out and take 5 or 10 minutes to do a survey, it won't kill you. They don't ask for your bank account or credit card number. They ask what you think about PRODUCTS YOU USE EVERY DAY. REMEMBER: The companies who PAY MRSI to do RESEARCH for them add the cost of this research to the prices you PAY. If you make it hard to get this research done by being a DOUCHE BAG then you are ultimatly costing yourself money.

January 25th, 2011 Scott CA

Phone rang once and then they hung up.

January 22nd, 2011 Business VA

I got a call from them on 22.01.11 saying that they have an emergency and they MUST have four amplifiers I have ASAP. Since I am a business, they WILL be billed for the amps. They know I have them for sale and they say they "must" have them. IF they pay, I will ship them. If not, I will post a negative report on their credit report for being a deadbeat and file a report for making prank calls. By the HUGE number of complaints, checking on their credit report which is not good at all, I can see they will have another negative report. Use the email address hford@mrsi.com since Holly Ford is the Admin. contact.

"Bread Puppies"? Is that a fried dough version of Hush Puppies?

December 4th, 2010 Bang Dead

FIGHT BACK! MRSI's 800 # is 800-729-6774 . They called you so you have the right to call back, on thier 800 # which costs them money. Also, leave long messages on thier voicemails, which can clog up thier voicemail and run up thier 800 # bill.

I broke my leg running for a call from these people that I thought was business. They call 2-3 times a day.

Try putting up signs up saying "Free Pure Bread Puppies" witht thier phone # on it.

Dont complain, make them PAY!

Got a call that showed on the caller ID as Cincinnati, OH. He asked for me by name and then identified himself as working for MRSI - Marketing Research Services, Inc. He said that they were doing an important study on insurance just before I hung up on him. My curiosity had been satisfied that it was a surveyor so no need to waste any more of my time. Wonder if the new legislature will have the guts to add survey and political calls to the do-not-call list.

June 13th, 2010 Feed Up PA

They call on Sundays, unbelievable. They never leave a mesage, and, it says OHIO on my phone. I can't believe they can avoid the Do Not Call laws and rules, and, to call on Sundays. I swear to God, I don't know how people and companies sleep at night. I don't know who sells our numbers, who feels they have a right to call and harass people, hardworking people, that's why calls on Saturdays and Sundays have disrupted our dinners, they call at night and early in the morning, and, in the middle of a Sunday dinner with my church over for a small lunch. And it's nonsense, and, please know to call some of these companies back leads to verifying that your phone number is a working number, they just sell it to others and then you'll get the UNKNOWN CALLER and UNKNOWN NUMBER that I get once a week. Are other countries dealing with this money-grubbing-mongrels crap?! That's all it is, it's about money. I do hope the do not call registry/gov finds a way to investigate this number, because it's nothing but a scam.

Called three times in one day. Did not pick up because it was a OH number.

March 16th, 2010 Anna

Opinion survey they want, then get this middle finger of my opinion on them. I wish they would all drive themselves and their families over a cliff if that is what it takes to stop these home invasion ploys...home invasion of our right to peaceful enjoyment of whatever free leisure time we have, sleep disturbed by these organized crime pigs, talking dirty to my grand kid when she wouldn't wake me up, frikking pedohiles they hire, someone plz find out where that criminal lives and burn his damn house down.

March 14th, 2010 SF TX

I don't do surveys; I don't buy anything from phone solicitors. Sod off, wankers!

December 29th, 2009 Fish OH

The company is MRSI. If you send them an e-mail to donotcall@mrsi.com they will take your number off their lists.
Put “Do Not Call Request” in the subject line and include your phone number (or numbers).

December 29th, 2009 Todd in MKE

They kept calling 5 or 6 times a week. I never answered. Finally I did answer,they asked for me by name, I asked who's calling and they stated they were from MRSI (kind of garbled). I asked them to hold while I got the person they were asking for, left them on hold for 20 minutes, when I checked they had hung up. But I did get the satisfaction of making them burn up some minutes. LOL

December 15th, 2009 J.E. Jones CA

I have been receiving at least 3 calls a day from this number for the past 2 weeks. When I am not home they don't leave a message, and when I am home, since I don't recognize the number, I don't take the call and they hang up. Very very annoying.

Got the call today. Didn't answer but after checking this site, if this is MRSI this is a legit marketing survey co. who does pay on various different surveys. Just thought I would give the heads up. Might be able to make a few dollars.

November 13th, 2009 RDM NM

Second call today; didn't answer and they left no message. Initially thought it was a wrong number until I saw all the comments here. Thanks to Call Blocker service, no more calls.

October 1st, 2009 PW MO

They call everyday! I try to answer the call but nobody talks.

October 1st, 2009 aj WA

identified themselves as MRSI (an opinion research company). He said they were doing survey on insurance companies. When asked if I (or any family member) worked for an insurance company, I replied that I did. He politely told me that I was ineligible for this survey, said good night. This was about the fourth time they had tried to get me (usually at work). THis was the first time I was available to answer the phone though.

September 29th, 2009 BW

Yes it's a duplicate. 1st call was after 5pm, and 2nd call was close to 8pm.

September 16th, 2009 aj WA

third call between september 13 and 15th. They happen to call when I can't get to the phone, but no message on ans machine.

September 14th, 2009 KS AZ

I'm on DNC list, but these guys keep calling every weekend.

September 13th, 2009 CAROL

I am on the do not call list. I did not recognize the name or number so did not answer. They hung up after 3 rings so possibly robo calling which I thought was illegal after 09/01/2009. I will not after reading these reports.

September 11th, 2009 Jones AR

They called each day for two days, 9/9 and 9/10. Says "Cincinnati, OH"--I live over 600 miles away. Thanks to this site, I will continue to ignore it.

September 6th, 2009 Smith TN

Called twice 9-6-09. Didn't answer. Call came from Cincinnati, Ohio.

August 29th, 2009 Nancy

"Cincinnati OH". I'm glad I came here first instead of calling the number. I have family there that I connect with every 10 years or so but didn't recognize the number. Thank you.

August 15th, 2009 JG WA

This number has been calling daily for two weeks, multiple calls. We do not answer. Finally this morning the woman caller left a message that said
This is "garble-garble" calling regarding your claim and requesting that we call back at another 513 number. We have no claims out for anything, that I can recall, and if this is a Marketing Research firm, why would they be dealing with "claims?"

August 10th, 2009 notmissingit MA

This number comes up on my Caller ID as "Cincinnati OH" so we don't pick up. When they get voicemail they don't leave messages. They have been calling twice a day every day for a week, including weekends. I have no intention of contacting them. I'll outlast the jerks!

July 18th, 2009 Rebecca MA

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?

(513) 639-2399

June 26th, 2009 Laura CA

The company is MRSI Marketing Reseearch Services, Inc.

They keep calling then hang up when they get our voicemail. When you call the number, you get a recorded message telling you that if you want to be taken off their phone list you have to send a request by email or mail, which we won't do, as we don't want them to have our email or mailing address for even more spamming.

They don't allow you to file a request by hone, but their general number is 1-800-SAY-MRSI or 513-579-1555.

They pretend not to fall under the Do Not Call legislation because they conduct market research, but we doubt it and report them anyway.

June 6th, 2009 RW CA

A woman said she was conducting "an opinion survey."

June 6th, 2009 JAS TN

May 30th, 2009 lolly429 VT

This company has called several times so I called it back. It's MRSI - Marketing Research Services. www.mrsi.com A "legit" marketing research firm that conducts phone surveys for their clients. So, it's most likely that they obtained your phone number from a company that you provided information to.

Since they don't solicit or conduct telemarketing, they are exempt from the Do Not Call registry. As a "courtesy" they welcome people to self-subscribe to their internal "Do Not Call" list by emailing donotcall@mrsi.com. Put "Do Not Call Request" in the subject line. Best bet - use open a free bogus email account (if you don't already have one for these sorts of things) and send it from there so your personal email box doesn't get flooded with additional correspondence from them.

May 12th, 2009 Me PA

They bin calling here and hanging up on me. when the woman answered they said they were a marketing research survey. reverse phone directory said they are from Cincinnati,OH.

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.

(513) 639-2399

They just called again.

May 4th, 2009 DGA

Don't answer calls from unfamiliar numbers, but they didn't leave a message.

April 26th, 2009 Billy Herndon

This is a scam. They tell you it is a survey but it is a scam to get information.
They also call on Sunday. It is a phising scam I'm sure.

I've signed up with DoNotCall.org, and still get calls, including this Cincinnati one.... I assumed it was a marketing call that doesn't work b/c it always hangs up... that is, if I don't first! If someone doesn't answer right away, I always just hang up b/c I assume it's just a marketing call, but of course they just keep calling... ugghh!! Even tho' most people claim not to do business with these places, there must be some people who still fall for these calls.....

April 1st, 2009 Nunya Biness TX

This is a Market Research Firm. Because they are a "Market Research Firm" they do not fall under the "Do Not Call List" rules. This is BS. Anyway, to get off of there call list, you must send an email to donotcall@mrsi.com. In the subject line you must put "Do Not Call Request". Or you can send them a letter. Fork that! I went and made up a bogus email at hotmail and sent them an email to an email address that will do them no good.

March 28th, 2009 Kevin CA

They've called me twice so far this week and I've never answered.
let no message.

March 27th, 2009 Lou MA

They left no message. I called back and got a recording for MRSI marketing research. This is the second call in a week and I have an unlisted number.

March 26th, 2009 tracey NY

I have been receiving many calls from this number too.They always hang up when the answering machine comes on. Well they just called @ 6:35pm tonight. They left a message and said"the man on the phone said I'm Jesus Christ, he said some other things too. It was quite creepy and now I have it on tape too. Something needs to be done!!!

March 15th, 2009 Robert L PA

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.

March 15th, 2009 Rob L. PA

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....

March 9th, 2009 Charlotte NC NC

It creeps me out when I get a phone call from the sam number over & over yet never a message left.

February 26th, 2009 LL CA

just got another call picked up but no answer..same last time too...real annoying

February 16th, 2009 Jo Mama

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.

February 13th, 2009 Holly CA

They called me 3 times today and when I answer, there's no one there. It's getting old. Not answering it anymore.

February 8th, 2009 M CA

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.

November 27th, 2008 Me TX

I put in a complaint with the do not call registry. I am tired of this phone number calling me all the time.

November 27th, 2008 Terri TX

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.

November 26th, 2008 OCSweetness CA

keeps calling me but never leaves a message. several times a day

November 15th, 2008 Deborah VA

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.

October 30th, 2008 Nikki TX

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.

October 15th, 2008 Michael MA

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.

October 8th, 2008 JT CT

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

September 26th, 2008 Tara NJ

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.

September 5th, 2008 jg

what happened to a do not call list... have received numerous calls from them... did not answer phone... nor did they leave message...

August 21st, 2008 Amy

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.

August 21st, 2008 Raj TX

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.

August 21st, 2008 Raj TX

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.

August 15th, 2008 bradley

calls several times a week lately but doesn't leave messages

August 13th, 2008 Elizabeth A.

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.
