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?

May 7th, 2009 Larry M. MO

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.

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.

July 21st, 2008 Cliff TX

My god 1168 calls reported on these jerkoffs.

Interrupted an ongoing phone conversation

July 4th, 2008 S PA

July 2nd, 2008 Margaret

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.

June 23rd, 2008 Mary

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.

June 18th, 2008 Bob

Multiple calls; never leave a message.

June 13th, 2008 privatee FL

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.

June 6th, 2008 Nicole

April 25th, 2008 Coot

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.

April 23rd, 2008 Michael

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

April 22nd, 2008 Sid

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:
Mary Stitch

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.

April 11th, 2008 me

1 513 531 3690

April 6th, 2008 sandy w. NJ

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.

April 3rd, 2008 Jack NV

The phone rang with the number listed above and was from Cincinnati, OH. I didn't bother to answer the phone.

March 6th, 2008 tessa CA

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.

February 28th, 2008 TW

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!!!

February 20th, 2008 Lauren MA

I had ATLEAST 7 missed calls from this number within a 3 day span.

February 12th, 2008 B GA

Called them back and got a recording, added my # to their do not call list. I guess we'll see if it works.

January 31st, 2008 K AL

Didn't answer - no msg

January 30th, 2008 Idiot TX

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!!

January 29th, 2008 Melody CA

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!

January 29th, 2008 Aaron

Left a message and sounded like 'Houston Radio Research'.

January 28th, 2008 Jennifer NC

I called this number back and it allowed me to take my number off the list.

January 22nd, 2008 Wary CO

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.

January 20th, 2008 Jay

I have been getting this call for months and months. It always shows up as "OHIO." Never leaves a message.

January 17th, 2008 Robert

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.

January 16th, 2008 cn OR

called and hung up

January 14th, 2008 Jay CO

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.

January 11th, 2008 abinden CO

Caller ID said "Ohio" didn't leave a message.

January 9th, 2008 sara ME

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!

January 8th, 2008 Delena KS

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.

January 7th, 2008 Rob MA

January 4th, 2008 Allison CA

January 3rd, 2008 ab in denver CO

800notes.com

January 3rd, 2008 mo CO

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.

January 3rd, 2008 Rob M MA

Called about radio surveying. They call atleast twice a week..

December 17th, 2007 Luis Bleu OH

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.

December 13th, 2007 Jen VA

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.

December 13th, 2007 Dave

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.

December 12th, 2007 Joe FL

Didn't say anything. Just hung up....

December 12th, 2007 Bill

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.

December 12th, 2007 anonymous

Claimed to be exempt from Do Not Call List because "are not selling anything."

December 9th, 2007 Cheryl

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.

December 7th, 2007 Anthony Wright AL

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.

December 6th, 2007 Linda PA

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.

December 3rd, 2007 Mandy MA

These people call constantly.. every day, several times a day, all different times. I don't answer, and they never leave a message.

December 1st, 2007 Artie MA

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.

November 29th, 2007 Rob MA

The URL was stripped from my previous comment:
www.arbitron.com/radio_stations/btrsu02-askdred.htm

November 29th, 2007 Rob MA

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.

November 24th, 2007 gtmom NY

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.

November 21st, 2007 sarah MN

this number calls my landline at least 3 times a week. i never answer.

November 20th, 2007 350z

November 19th, 2007 Arnett M IL

hung up, no response to my greeting

November 14th, 2007 fluff1948 OH

I seem to be online every time they call, and they won't leave a message on Callwave, they just hang up.

November 13th, 2007 about to sue

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.

November 12th, 2007 Michelle TX

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.

November 10th, 2007 Nick NC

Called last night and today already. No message left, just annoying. Further research I found this: www.timezonesforpcs.com

November 9th, 2007 rachel

they called and didn't leave a message, this is the second time they have called in two weeks

November 9th, 2007 Jessica LA

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.

November 8th, 2007 jeffry CO

yeah they call my house at 11:00 at night. wakes up my kids every time...

November 8th, 2007 John CO

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.

November 8th, 2007 Cheryl CA

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!

November 7th, 2007 Bridget MD

No message

November 6th, 2007 kate NJ

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.

November 5th, 2007 SPIKE90 OH

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.

November 5th, 2007 robert FL

they want to do ratings on local radio stations - as i listen mainly to christain radio, they don't want to talk to me

November 3rd, 2007 Sara MD

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.

October 31st, 2007 JK NY

This number rings our phone nearly every day! What can we do about this abusive intrusion?

October 31st, 2007 JK NY NY

This number rings our phone nearly every day! What can we do about this abusive intrusion?

October 31st, 2007 Babs TN

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....

October 30th, 2007 EP VA

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.

October 29th, 2007 Mary MI

Called and hung up

October 28th, 2007 Diane MN

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.

October 28th, 2007 Annoyed

very annoying... I keep getting this call, no one answers.

October 28th, 2007 brenda p

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!!

October 27th, 2007 Jeff CA

I called the number back. The message says they are a radio survey company. They do not sell anything.

October 24th, 2007 HB TX

Called Austin, TX at 8:23pm, no message, no Caller ID (just out of area).

October 23rd, 2007 Beth

Two calls tonight on my cell. No message...annoying!!!

October 21st, 2007 Claire PA

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!!

October 19th, 2007 Josh TX

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.

October 19th, 2007 Renee WI

No one was there when I answered. I blew a raspberry into the phone, said inappropriate words, and hung up the phone.

October 16th, 2007 Holly Valliant CA

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.

October 15th, 2007 Tea

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?

October 8th, 2007 Lindsay PA

They call and say they are from a radio survey call late at night and at least 4 times a week. It is fake!!!!

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.

October 6th, 2007 curious NC

don't know who it was. no message.

October 6th, 2007 Eby

Just tell them you work for a radio station - it's worked for me in the past.

October 4th, 2007 Serene VA

Always aking for my husband about a radio survay.

October 4th, 2007 Rebecca

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

October 3rd, 2007 Alyson

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.

October 1st, 2007 Lori

Have recieved many calls from this number. As soon as I pick up they hang up.

September 27th, 2007 jen OH

Hung up on us without saying anything.

September 26th, 2007 jason

September 22nd, 2007 Jenz UT

Did not answer since I didn't recognize the number. Called 3 times in 4 hours

September 20th, 2007 joe NC

often calls but never leaves a message and I don't answer

September 20th, 2007 Kay TX

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.

September 18th, 2007 Shannon MN

Called and spoke to my husband. Said they would call back...hope they do not.

September 17th, 2007 Carrie LA

If you call the number back you can add your name to a do not call list

September 16th, 2007 Big Jon

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.

September 16th, 2007 Leba OH

caller id says: Cincinnati, ohio.

Hung up when I answered.

September 16th, 2007 Heidi OH

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.

September 15th, 2007 me

called today, i reported them as im on the do not call list

September 15th, 2007 Kara PA

Call the number and enter your own telephone number to have you removed from the list.

September 13th, 2007 CHERYL CA

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?

September 12th, 2007 Mary

I have had several calls from this number and when I answer, they hang up. Annoying!!!

September 12th, 2007 captain TX

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.

September 12th, 2007 Jay NM

My mother gave them my cell #. they call too much for radio surveys.

September 10th, 2007 Getting tired

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!!

September 6th, 2007 Suzanne NC

Missed call and didn't leave a message.

September 6th, 2007 Matt VA

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...

September 5th, 2007 Brenda AZ

Asking way too many personal questions. Wanted to know my age group. Filed a complaint with the FCC.

August 30th, 2007 ling NJ

THIS IS PISSING ME OFF. this stupid number keeps calling me constantly 3 times a day. =.=;;

August 27th, 2007 Jane Doe SC

They've called many times but hang up when they get an answering machine.

August 27th, 2007 Doris NC

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?

August 23rd, 2007 David NC

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.

Ugh.

August 23rd, 2007 edd NV

August 21st, 2007 MAD TX

Someone needs to MONITOR this company. As in don't call me!!! Will BLOW my whistle in the earpiece if you call again

August 19th, 2007 Laurie TX

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.

August 19th, 2007 Erin

Got several calls from this asking me to do a radio survey. They call several times a day.

August 19th, 2007 KYM GA

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.

August 18th, 2007 Oswaldo CA

Nobody answer. Just a noise.

August 16th, 2007 Blake AL

i have received a call from them 1nc or 2ce a month. They never say anything and just hang up

August 15th, 2007 bc Suffolk VA VA

Caller ID hit 8/14/07

August 15th, 2007 katie

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

August 15th, 2007 ashley AZ

keep getting calls from them. they are some radio survey compan like others have said. very annoying

August 14th, 2007 lauren NJ

ive been getting around 1-2 calls from them a day for about 6 months. i cant get them to stop! messed up

August 14th, 2007 Wendy FL

We've received several calls from this number and no one is ever on the line. Now we don't answer.

August 12th, 2007 Jaclyn FL

Not even from Ohio; live in FL. Called me. Left no message. Unsure. Lame-os.

August 12th, 2007 Private OH

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.

August 10th, 2007 Mandy

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!!!

August 9th, 2007 Heather

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

August 9th, 2007 Ruth AR

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!

August 7th, 2007 bc Suffolk VA VA

Caller ID hit 8/6/07

August 6th, 2007 Sharon

Hung up as soon as I answered.

August 5th, 2007 Jaye

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.

August 5th, 2007 PG MA

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

August 5th, 2007 Paul F

Did not answer

August 3rd, 2007 Pay Attention

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?).

July 30th, 2007 madpa PA

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!!!

July 30th, 2007 Jim

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.

July 29th, 2007 debbie

phone rang ... i said hello ... they hung up!

July 27th, 2007 rebeca MA

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.

July 27th, 2007 jessica WA

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.

July 26th, 2007 Steve

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 !!

July 24th, 2007 rb TX

If you call the number back, there is an option to enter your phone number to have it removed from the calling list.

July 23rd, 2007 Al TX

Didn't answer because this was the 5 call from the same number and the other times they said that they were doing surveys.

July 17th, 2007 Mother OH

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.
