Direct Energy - scum!
several time they called us. We won't answer them anymore. Where did they get our phone numbers but we usually stay unlisted phones. We are not interesting to reduce our bills. We want to keep real company than one. We are hearing impairment. We cannot trust them.
Every day, several times a day. Ridiculous.
totally a scam. they asked me if i am the person who takes care of my hydro bill. i said yes even though i live in a building where hydro is included. he then started in with a bit about my bill and that i qualify for something. i'm not sure what that something was cause i hungup on him. when they call back i might just listen to them for awhile and then scream my effing head off in his ear.
They call and just hang up.
Caller ID displays the number and "Arizona". 623 is an Arizona area code. Whoever calls more than once a day. No one I know is at this number.
Having a family member deployed, has it's own stress. Having another family member in Hospital, not doing well, is yet another stress. This # calls up to 6 times a day at all hours, even as late as 9pm. It needs to stop now.
Glad I found this site and now what turds are calling me especialy when I have an unpublished number! In a case such as this one, I hit the "#" sign four times thus canceling them from calling me again. Usually, most of the time it works and, at times, it does not.
Just for fun, if you are working or living in an environment that you could do this in, answer the phone whenever a suspected telemarketer is on the line. If you hear a real human voice and they start their shpeel, hold a gas charged air-horn to the phone & blast them for a second or two! You can get them from amazon.com for as little as $7.00 for the 1.4oz can or under $30.00 for the 8oz which will last a very long time if used in short bursts. Refill 8oz cans are about $16.00. Free Shipping often available on orders over $25.00!
Even if it's a recording, wait and see if a human takes over the call or if there is an option for them to start recording you, then blast them!
Don't get mad, GET REVENGE!
tell these annoying people to quit calling my number. they call and don't say anything. one time when they called , i told them to take my name off their calling but they haven't and i am getting sick of this. i called the number back ,some girl answers and sends me to someone else and all that does is rings. how do you get these idiots to quit calling????? thank you , terry
it isnt a scam...and the silence doesnt mean that they are ignoring you when you answer the phone, it is probably just a problem with the automatic dialer. ask to be removed from the list if its that big of an issue..
SUGGESTION: CONTACT THE BBB (Better Business Bureau of Arizona)
EMAIL INFO@ARIZONABBB.ORG TELE: (602) 264-1721 FAX (602) 263-0997 arizonabbb.org wHEN COMPLETING A FORM ON LINE IT IS NECESSARY TO PUT IN INFORMATION ON THE ADDRESS LINE, I PUT "ADDRESS UNKNOW" SO THAT I CAN FILE A COMPLAINT ONLINE. AT END WHEN ASKED WHAT WOULD I LIKE SEEN DOWN. REPORT TO THE FCC, ABUSE OF TELEPHONE SYSTEM. AFTER RESEARCH ON LINE, THIS COMPANY IS NOT JUST MAKING ANNOYING TELEPHONE CALLS BUT PUTTING CHARGES ON CREDIT CARDS..... WATCH YOUR CREDIT CARD STATEMENTS.......
I have been receiving calls from this number for a while. called the number back today. Person answered asked for me to hold. She quickly got back on phone I asked that I know longer get phone calls from them. She asked for my number and said not a problem. It is now illegal for them to continue to call me.
i called them back and asked to be off the calling list, i still get 4 calls a day with no one on the other end. 623-238-6131 its in my caller i.d. 99 times... as UMG. im about to drive to arizona to cut their phone lines down
this number's been calling me 2-3 times a day for well over a month. i finally tried to pick up, and all i had was a dial tone
They're a sales boiler room for energy resellers. Looked up www.AGRGroupinc.com. Their web site states that they are "..The premier full service sales and marketing company for energy suppliers. We are expert in every aspect of customer acquisition, lead generation, customer service and promotion in the deregulated energy industry." Their byline is "If we can't sell it Nobody can"
Their corporate offices are at: 13902 Harbor Boulevard, Suite 2C, Garden Grove, Ca.92843 800-457-1181. Matthew Judkin is the CEO and Founder. Herb Zerden is CFO and co-Founder. Adolfo Quintero is COO and co-Founder
Beth Shaffer-Ludwig is the Vice President of Business Development. I think EVERYONE should give her a call at 800-457-1181 and ask her how she feels about getting all these phone calls.
you should do what my family is doing, were calling them after hours and flooding their answering service, we dont leave names on nothing, see how they like it!
This is some sort of telemarketing in which they refer to your electric bill. UI in my case and they mention it is imperative to call them back. One might think they were calling UI back but that is not the case. Not sure what they're selling but I recommend you avoid this phone number.
i get three calls a day once i answer they say nothing it desturbs my home business
Can you please stop with the phone calls. Now I just answer and hang up on you! How does it feel?
Stop with the phone calls why answer when no one speaks on the other end! You call here 6 times a day...a little tired of it! Go away thank you!
get on and let everyone get on as well it's not serious and it sure as hell it isn't funny.... Do something productive with your time like taking care
of youre loved ones
I recently got a new phone number. Ever since I've gotten it, this number calls numerous times every day. When I answer, there is no one at the other end. I would like these calls to stop as they constantly interrupt my work (I work from home).
TIRED OF THIS CALL ALL DAY LONG
THEY KEEP ASKING FOR MY NAME AND ADDRESS, MY COURRENT ELECTRIC, NATURAL GAS COMPANY, THEY CLAIM TO HAVE ALOWER RATE.
BUL/L;L;L;' CRAP '';';';' IS ALL ABOUT SCAM ';';.;'
So, who is UMG?
I GET 3-4 CALLS DAILY!!!!! WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE ???!!!
IF ANY OF YOU ACTUALLY TOOK THE TIME TO LISTEN YOU WOULD SEE THESE ARE ALL VERY BENEFICIAL PHONE CALLS. NOT TRYING TO SWITCH YOUR UTILITY COMPANY. IF YOU KNEW ANYTHING ABOUT DEREGULATION YOU WOULD KNOW ITS IMPOSSIBLE TO CHANGE YOUR UTILITY COMPANY UNLESS YOU MOVE OUT THE AREA.
If they are working Americans they should do their job and repond when I say Hello. Instead all is get is silence. That is nothing but harasment.
i dialed *69 and got the number 623 238 6131. they call me several times a day and when i answer they do not. I called the number back today and told them that I do not appreciate these called. She said that she would have a sales rep. call me back. I said NO I wanted the calls to stop immediately.
Very rude person with spanish accent called and asked who is in charge of PG& E gas account - i said you have the wrong number, he said "well there must be someone who handles that - let me have the manager" I transfered him and he hung up.
The people that call from this number are working Americans. Trying to feed their families and fuel their vehicles. Stop your whining about your phonr ringing. Clean the J%4Z off your keyboard, go out and find yourself a real cause.
Julie Davis @ (800-968-3503 X9944) needs me to call her back about my natural gas accounts. Um sure Julie I'll get right on it and call you back in your boiler room so you can scam me on some b-s natural gas business you're running there in Arizona. Maybe I'll just notify the AG there in Arizona, have a nice day!
It's easy to file a complaint online with the FCC. It just takes a minute. Here is the link to file a complaint online:
Wants me to call back about my "account." Con Edison doesn't operate where I live. The woman forgot to hang up after leaving the message, and you could hear in the background that this is a huge call center - it sounded like the commodities trading floor!
My Caller ID only Says ARIZONA. I called at 4:59 am, and voice mail answers AGR Group. Thats all I know. THey are not leaving messages, and I don't answer the phone so.
They call my neighbor and myself at least once a week, no matter how many times we tell them we don't pay for gas. They called this morning the lady rudely said 'Hello, I need to talk to the person in charge of your gas bill" like she was pissed at me or something I told her " Call the Army they pay my bill" and she changed her tone to a scared "Oh ok I'm sorry to have bothered you"
Have called several times. Claimed calling for Con Edison want to give me a lower electric rate. Call back number is 1-800-968-3503 x 8833 leaves name as Ray Serrano
I get calls from a caller ID that says unknown name unknown number. Happens about three times a day. When I answer, I am expecting a recorded message, or a bill collector, or the FBI or SOMETHING. I say hello and there is no response whatsoever. It beginning to freak me out because I am the only one here and am the only one who has ever had my phone number.
This place calls 4 times per day. When I answer the phone there is NO ONE on the line.
IF you have CALL SCREENING on your phone you can have this number blocked. Just dial *60 (star - sixty) and you can activate the service. You can either enter the number (they usually give instructions) or it will ask if you want the last number called added to your screened numbers.
After reading the other posts about this number - I KNOW it's a sales call for heating/natural gas services.
Just got a commerical call from Conrad Jules Braun, the sole operator and owner of Homeytel, aka JB Home
Direct. He starts out his commercial messages under the guise of "Homeytel business news" or "Homeytel consumer
If he calls you with an (illegal) automated message for a business purpose and you are on the do not call list,
he will claim it was a mistake or accident. If you calls you for a political message, he will claim he's
exempt from the DNC rules and he can still call you.
Here's an informative link on his Gold Standard Corp scam:
On September 7, 1993, a grand jury indicted Braun for five counts of mail fraud in violation of 18 U.S.C. Sec.
1341 and Sec. 2, five counts of wire fraud in violation of 18 U.S.C. Sec. 1343 and Sec. 2, and five counts of
interstate transportation of funds obtained by fraud in violation of 18 U.S.C. Sec. 2314 and Sec. 2.
On April 21, 1994, Braun pleaded guilty to five counts of wire fraud and five counts of interstate
transportation of funds obtained by fraud. During the sentencing hearing, the district court1 found that Braun,
as the founder, sole owner, president, and manager of Gold Standard, was the organizer, leader, manager, and
supervisor of the criminal activity. This finding resulted in an increase of two offense levels under United
States Sentencing Guidelines Sec. 3B1.1(c). Braun was subsequently sentenced to 90 months imprisonment and
ordered to pay $1,966,694.19 in restitution.
He has spent years in prison for parole violations, battery, crimianl threats, and trespassing. He has called
numerous residents with automated messages and runs his current telemarketing business in san diego:

This might help the people who are talking about the Do Not Call listing. From the Do Not Call Registry's website (http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/edu/pubs/consumer/alerts/alt107.shtm):
#28 If I register my number on the National Do Not Call Registry, will it stop all telemarketing calls?
No. Placing your number on the National Do Not Call Registry will stop most telemarketing calls, but not all. Because of limitations in the jurisdiction of the FTC and FCC, calls from or on behalf of political organizations, charities, and telephone surveyors would still be permitted, as would calls from companies with which you have an existing business relationship, or those to whom you’ve provided express agreement in writing to receive their calls.
this is a call girl number
They didn't leave any message. Called once a day for several days
mds does not receive any $$ from anyone who gives to these charities. you send your financial contribution to the organization, they pay mds to do the leg work. think about it...xyz charity cannot keep/pay volunteers/employees to make thousands of calls everyday to everyone of their sponsors; at least not without drowning in the process, they contract out to mds for pennies on the dollar. and i put my name on the nat'l do not call registry, and read the fine print that states 'this does not apply to non-profit or political organizations.' so all of you belly-achers have no one to blame but yourself for the ignorance you display when chewing on a caller about info you chose to overlook when adding your # to a registry in your haste. have a great one!!
A Google search for 'MDS COMMUNICATIONS' came up with a site in Arizona. They indicate they are a company that is not subject to the government do not call registry because they perform calls for non-profits & political entities. Their web site has a do not call registration that is good for 5 years. www.mdscom.com
No idea who this is...comes up as unknown and doesn't leave a message. Probably telemarketer. Extremely irritating. Stop Calling
He asked for my grandfather who has been dead for almost a year and my grandpa didnt even have this number. I said he wasnt here and he hung up. Then i called back and said" obviously you're a telemarketer because he has been dead for years, douchebag" then i hung up. I was furious. The government should block numbers that are reported too much.
OK these idiots keep calling my cell phone and when I answer noone speaks. I wish i could find out who the heck they are so I can file a harrassing calls complaint with my local pd.
Numerous calls. I went to the MDS Communications website and put myself on the DO not call list.
Several calls with no answer upon picking up. MDS Communications out of Arizona. Went to web site and they have a page where you can delete your number from their call list. We'll see if they honor thier word. Take a look at the website they claim to have honor, respect and integrity as part of the creedo. The office number is 480-752-8140 and the fax is 480-752-8144, turnabout is fair play if they keep bothering you, bother them back!
I'm sick and tired of these people. They are a messaging service that robocall for companies, charities, campaigns. Call and complain as much as possible! 602-388-8058

FROM THEIR WEBSITE:
Beginning with the next business day, your name will be removed from every new list that MDS uses. Please note that you may still receive calls from MDS for a short time as, unfortunately, we are unable to clean your name from lists that we are presently calling.
They are not near as annoying or high pressure as those wanting to "sell or give me" aluminum siding and free vacations.
Stop calling me; jerks!
Whomever this is calling my cell phone is breaking the law b/c my number is listed on the Do Not Call list. They need to stop calling.
get a call from this number practically daily
When I called the number back a recorded message stated that the number was disconnected or no longer inservice
No message on answering machine. Their web site shows: www.mdscom.com Welcome to MDS Communications
MDS provides a complete array of telephone fundraising services for non-profit organizations. Outstanding results, unparalleled quality, reasonable prices and attentive customer service have led many of the nation's largest and most respected non-profit organizations to partner with MDS.
Since MDS only makes non-profit, charitable and political calls, we are exempt from the federal do-not-call registry and most state do-not-call lists. However, we do not want to call people who do not want to be called.
If you would like to be added to the MDS do-not-call list, please complete the form below.
I went to mds communications website and they have a "do not call" registration there as they are supposedly not covered by the national do not call registry because they are "non profit". I signed up for their do not call list. Now we will see if it works.
called by Agr to promote their prices for natural gas. I do not understand how is it that the state of Arizona is doing nothing about this company. With Maverik MCcaine, they should have been taking care of long time ago. I am going to call his office today and ask for action.
some chubby bitch laughing in and saying hello
"MDS Communication" calling for some pro life organization. They called my CELL PHONE!! They even knew my name and when I asked them where they got all of this information they would not tell me, just told me that "I must have signed up for some pro life / organizational stuff" or something to that effect, which I absolutely DID NO SUCH THING as I am *NOT* Pro Life. What some crap, wouldn't give me any details as to where they got my info. Hope these douchebags drown in their own piss.
Go to this link to remove your phone number for 5 years.
Here is how you can stop all these calls.
Before it goes to voice mail, pick up and then hang up.
The computer will then skip you next time because it will think the call was successful.
These calls are all computer generated and they call three at a time and the first one to pick up gets answered which is why you sometimes get the ghost effect.
But if you can trick the computer into thinking the call was made, it's worked for me!
Don't even talk, just answer then press the disconnect button.
These people call almost every day - sometimes more than once a day. It's driving me crazy. How can I stop it?
They said they were (something) for life. Anyhow, that number is now in my auto-answering program (PhoneTray FREE)on my computer. They will get a recorded message.
Said they were calling on behalf of Special Olympics, doing a survey. I hung up. Same number has been calling for
two weeks without leaving msg or hanging up if we answer quickly, as other posts mention. Nuisance.
Wanted to know my views on abortion
Great website! I've searched and searched for info on this number, and I agree 100% with all the comments here. The people at this number call endlessly, hang up if you do answer, and, I'm sure, do the other things that are mentioned here. Thanks for the info about it being a huge call center that raises money for different causes. I'll continue to not answer when it rings.
Some energy telemarketer wanting to speak to the person responsible for paying the natural gas bill. These guys have called us repeatedly over recent weeks from a variety of other numbers, e.g. 623-238-6208, 647-722-2126. Asked them to put us on do-not-call list.
Man, are these people pushy and rude!! This guy calls my house at 8:30 a.m. and tells me that our gas company has hired them to try to discount our gas prices. Basically, they are trying to get you to switch to them and to leave your regular gas company. They do not take "No" or "I am not interested" for an answer. Even when you ask to speak to their supervisor, it won't help. The super will come on and try to sell you the same thing. If you see AGR on your idea, do not answer!
Calls about 4-5 times a day, same lady, wants to put us on a cheaper gas bill.
There is no such of a thing and they do not take no for a answer.
I hadn't received calls from this number until today. I believe it is the same people who were calling from a local number here 402-218-1290. I looked up that number on Google and found another phone number search site that reported that it's a company called Call Meyer and they do political surveys and other surveys. It said you could visit their website, www.callmeyer.com to be removed from the calling list. I have called them (while put on hold forever), emailed them, and when they called again - the last time was yesterday - I yelled at them not to call back. I realize they are a political, or whatever else they do (looking at the website they have a lot of clients), and don't have to abide by the do not call list, etc. Anyway, this seems like the same tactics to me - and probably the same people.
After I emailed the Arizona Attorney Generals office and complained about the calls then told them I could boycott any and all things that came from Arizona and guess who is running for president? the calls stopped.HUM!
the website says telemarketing..mdscom.com
In past 2 weeks received several calls from this number. annoying it is.
Received two calls from 602-388-8058 today... each time, nobody responded after saying "hello"
They called 6-2-08 asked to speak to account holder on gas bill. Iwas not home.. 6-3-08 Got another call It was a hang up. Guess they only talk to those who seem scamable..They must be oxygen thiefs..
Have gotten 2 calls from this number over the last few days. It just shows up as Out of Area, and they leave no message. I have anonymous call rejection. The phone rings twice and the system just hangs up on them. It's mildly annoying.
Democrats AIDS fund raising to save the Gay Whales in the rain forest
Called several times. Caller ID says Phoenix, Arizona
THESE PEOPLE AREN'T A NON-PROFIT. THEY'RE SCAM ARTISTS!!!!
Just started seeing this on my caller ID this week.
Omg! They just called me...who are they?
Okay, listen up people. . .The DO NOT CALL LIST does NOT cover the following. . .
1. Political Calls
2. Fundraising organizations that call on behalf of non-profit organizations
3. Research/Marketing Survey companies
4. Companies that you do business with or have done business with.
You must answer your phone and tell these people to remove you from their internal call list. You can report these calls as much as you want to the Do Not Call Registry, but since these companies are not covered you are wasting your time!!!! You can however, get this companies address and send them a letter stating that you want your name removed from their call list. Send the letter certified/return receipt requested. If they call again after they have received the letter, you can take them to Small Claims Court. You do not need a lawyer, court cost are below $30.00, but you can be awared $500.00 or more. Remember to document and keep copies of everything, including any messages that may be left on your answering machines.
Continuously calls. Tonight they called at 9:06 as I was about to fall asleep. I could hear background noise, but no one spoke.
I get out-of-state calls all the time. If they don't leave a message, I erase the call and forget about it. However, since I've gotten 6 calls in the past couple of days, I decided to take a look at what google says. Waste of time. You guys worry too much. By far, it's best to erase the call and forget about it.---Horace 05/07/08
Doesn't appear from reading some previous comments that anyone reported these jerks to donotcall.com ... I'm going to!
Daily calls, no message on voicemail.
They call several times a day for a couple of weeks now. I only answered the last two times they called. The first time I was told they were calling for the Veterans of Foreign Wars and wanted to thank me for my support. I said "You're welcome" and hung up. They called the next morning while I wasn't home and as usual they left no message. They called later the same morning once again identifying themselves as the VFW. The "lady" got a bit surly and did her best to loudly talk over me while I told her I had already been thanked so she needn't call anymore. I'm afraid I was a bit rude by hanging up when only I was finished talking.
602-388-8058 called twice today already. First time, I answered because it was a 602 prefix and we know people in that area. Nobody was there. The second time, I let the ans. machine pick up. They left no mssg. Sounds like this # fronts for a whole bunch of organizations.
I did call this number back as they do not leave a message on the answering machine. This belongs to MDS Fundraising. You get an automatic system answering the telephone.
I am getting really sick of being called even on Sunday mornings!!!!!!!!!! I think we should start a class action suit against callers who do this when we are on the do not call list.
John Goff "needs me to call back" about my electricity account. Sure John - I'll call back. Nice boiler room background noise.
If anyone would like to chat with John - he can be reached at (800) 836-6961 ext. 1136.
602-388-8058 is calling many times. They do not leave message and to top it off they called at 2 AM. This is it!! I am calling the Attorney General office and reporting this.
Calls almost every day, ID is UNKNOWN NAME, and never leave a message.
Have had several calls from this number on Caller ID. Finally answered today. Someone asked for a man who has the same last name as mine but I don't know him. When I said he didn't live here, I was immediately disconnected. Hope this means they won't call again, but I doubt it.
I don't pick up on call numbers that don't id themselves or leave a message. These people have been calling every couple days but leave no message... big clue that it's nothing important! Especially the 2nd time they call.
no message - just missed call - second time in two days
i think its bullshit all theese calls from the same number but different causes every time they call and eithor i get a nigger on the fone or no answer
Up until recently, I have been keeping a a list of numbers I do not recognize. I am on the National Do Not Call list. My son finally convinced me that I need to answer these calls and ask to be taken off of their lists. I can't tell you how much better (and quieter) things are in my home. He was right, it does help quite a bit. However,, there are some who just do not get the message. This is one of those numbers. (602-388-8058. The first time they called today, I answered but no one responded, so I stayed on the line for awhile and then finally hung up. Tonight they called again. It is (at least this time) it is the RNC. I told the young woman that I would no longer be contributing to the RNC, but only to individual candidates of my choosing. I also told her that I have asked that my name be removed from their list on several occasions. I'm going back to keeping a spreadsheet on these unsolicited calls.
If anyone figures out a legal way to start a class-action suite against these people, I want to know about it. I'm sick and tired of this crap, and want my privacy back!!
some woman called our business and said she needed to speak with the person in charge of the UI energy account. I told her we don't have a UI account and she said "oh you use Wallingford (the town we're located in) electric? we do use them, but I said "I have no idea who we use but it isn't UI" then she said "but you are located in Wallingford, right?" and I just hung up. I'm always leary about people looking for a "yes" answer. seems like a scam.
Wife answered phone. Sounded like a woman. She would not leave a message but said she would call back. Don't normally answer unknown name with numbers not recognized.
I have received 7 calls in the past 2 weeks. I never answer and they leave no message.
I wanted to add, that because it is a clearing-house, there is no way to possibly remove EVERY SINGLE organization they represent. They are skirting the law here. Does someone know how to stop this monster?
Charity fundraising clearing-house for many right wing conservative groups. Computer dialing I suspect, because will not leave message.
Received call -caller ID said-Phoenix, AZ. I answered it...they said they were calling for Judical Watch.
I went to this URL mdscom.com We'll see if they'll really take my number off their list but it's worth the try--
Thanks for the information! I'll be back to this site if calls persist
The calls are from Concerned Women for America. I have personally spoken with them. I told them they are contacting a business cell phone number and will be contacted by proper authorities if it happens again (IE fines).
it is a Fund raising call center for MDS
I get calls from this number and when I answer, they hang up!
Have recieved at least one call everyday from this number for at least 2 weekw now and they never leave a message, but continually call back. This is a public nuisance and would be nice if they were stopped.
Called back and message stated they are MDS communications that calls on behalf charity organizations. I left my number to be taken off their list, but we'll see.
someone talking in the background and then they hung up
I called back and got recording. Said they were a company that did polls, political & charitable fund raising.
Called several times a day over last week or so and never left a message. However, the last phone call they did leave some barely perceptible angry obsenities.
MDS communications makes calls for non profit groups and are not covered by telemarketing do not call rules. BUT they do not want to bother you if you do not want to be bothered. YOu can submit your number to be removed from their lists. It takes a while to be removed from all their current lists and the process starts the next business day after receiving the request.
On the theory that they are really MDS Communications, I went to their website and they have a "do not call" form (http://mdscom.com/dnc.html). I figure it can't be worse than them calling every day for a week.
Can't these calls be stopped?
Called @ 3:40pm on 1/16 - no message
We get calls from this number all the time and they never leave a message.
We receive one or more calls from this number nearly every day. We never answer and they never leave a message.
i am on the do not call list. did not leave message. called at 11:21am est.
Pro life looking for $75-100 donation.
Called at 11:06am, 1/7/08 - left no message
I picked up and talked to them on Jan 2 -- it was MDS Communications calling for the Republican National Committee, looking for money.
I went to their website immediately after the call, and placed my name and number on their do not call list.
They called again on Jan 3.
Got the 100th call from this number today -- this time it was the Republican National Committee, dunning me for money. Between the telephone solicitations and the mail requests, I get 4-5 requests for money from this outfit every week. They must think I'm a kabillionaire . . . idiots.
MDS Communications markets their call center operations to politicians and non-profits (exempt from do-not-call law). You can go to their web site (mdscom.com) and enter your phone number into their own do-not-call list.
Not recognizing the number, I let it ring to the machine. Caller hung up after the machine message began.
We have received this call several times... We don't answer it... and they don't leave a message...
I think this phone number is a company who calls for various organizations. Once my wife answered and it was on behalf of the republican national committee looking for a pledge payment. We had made a pledge but had told them we couldn't send it until after the first of the year. Apparently that was never recorded because this company is looking for payment now. It makes me sorry I ever pledged anything.
I have been getting this call regularly lately. I don't answer calls from toll free numbers or unrecognized numbers. I figure if it is important they will leave a message. They never do. It is just irritating.
We get at least one phone call per day from this number. I have a loved one in the hospital right now so when the phone rings I run to see who is calling - it's extrememly irritating & annoying that they won't stop even though I've never picked up the phone when it's them calling.
Calls once a week, answered tonight and jsut silence for 10 seconds and hangs up. Malfucktionning dialler same as the last 2 times I answered it.
i am on the do not call list and keep getting calls from theses people i have caller id and don't answer
Calls about every day, but never leaves a message.
Young man asked for my husband. When I said he was not available and could I take a message, he said, "No message; I'll call back." He was not rude, but I think this is the second time this call has been made in a week.
Add me to the list. Why they don\'t talk is beyond me. I call them back but got a recording. How do we end this lunacy?
The caller said they were a paid organization to solicit on behalf of the Salvation Army.
If you see the number on your caller ID it is from a telemarketing company. They claim exemption from the federal do not call list. There is a loophole in the law. To have your name removed from their list, call their number and leave your number with this message. "This call is being recorded with a time and date stamp. Remove this number (Your number) from all your lists." Mark the time and date you left the message. If they call again you can collect damages if you wish to pursue it. Or file a complaint at, www.donotcall.gov
I've had several calls from this number. They never leave a message. It is very annoying as they call several times a day. Thanks to caller ID I don't pick up the phone as it comes up 'Arizona Call'
They call about 3 times a day and never leave a message. They call on Sunday too.
They called me and asked for me by name, but mispronounced my last name twice on purpose to get me to clarify it and talk to them. I didn't correct them but rather asked who was calling. They promptly hung up. I took the suggestion of others and registered my name on their do not call list at mdscom.com
I sent a donation to America's Second Harvest and used my sister's name. Amazing how crap now shows up in her name -- I answered this call and they asked for her - when I said she wasn't here, rather than answer me (she passed away years ago in a different state before I made the donation), they just hung up. Clearly, America's Second Harvest is harvesting names/numbers, too..
Called at 8:30 AM.
CALLED SEVERAL TIMES--11/13 TO 11/20--ALMOST ALWAYS HANGING UP AFTER FAX PICKS UP. MAY HAVE TO REPORT TO DONOTCALL.GOV ABOUT THESE PEOPLE!
DON'T ANSWER UNKNOWNS
Numerous calls, never leave message.
Best Advice - check commennts of 10/04/2006 by David and use link to MDS COMMUNICATIONS CORPORATION. MDS has an icon for DO NOT CALL. Register your name and phone number - Good therapy and better than subjecting readers to abusive language.
Don't have caller ID. Got number by calling *69. They call over and over with the message that all their operators are busy. Please stay online for an important message. Calls start early morning and go on all day long. I never stay online. How do I get them to stop calling?
Called the number back; asked if it was common for them to not respond when they call and someone answers. Girl claimed that they had a technical glitch. Yeah right honey, at freakin 9am!!! Anyhow, asked for my name to be removed from the call list; she took it off (or claimed to).
Some one from this number calls at least 3 times a day every day! They never leave a message on my machine; they hang up when the OGM comes on.
They called my PARENTS home and asked for me by my MAIDEN name. I haven't lived at home in seven years. Sounds sketchy to me.
Calls almost every day, sometimes more, never leaves a message.
No Message left. I did go to MDS website and fill out the do not call form.
I receive calls from this number every single day and have for weeks. I do not pick up because I do not recognize the number. These calls come at all times of the day.
Just received a call from this number,no message was left I've also received some very odd numbers show up on my caller ID before this and they're not even full numbers. 923018 and the other one was 1224
They call several times a day, several days a week. I don't answer, since they block their identify on caller id and since I found all these reports right here on them. they never leave a message.
I use my sister's 3 year old to screen my calls. It's great and pisses off the other end. Why not? They are wasting my time so I'll waste their dime.
Unknown name called again 11/10/07 around 10:15. I had been getting calls from this number on a regular basis, but never answered and let my call rejection hang them up after five rings.
This time I picked up and asked politely "Please do not call me again".
Caller seems to call from two phones in quick succession. The first one says 'unkonwn name". Then he used a second, separate phone that has no caller ID, but my phone showed a generic identifier "incoming call". Both times I did not answer. I suspect they are soliciting for a political donation.
I've received multiple calls per week, each time representing a different organization.. a disabled veteran group, an abused women group, etc, so apparently they are contracted to represent a variety of concerns. I haven't encountered any rude representatives, but like most people I do not enjoy solicitations to answer surveys, provide funds, sign petitions, etc. I completed the form at mdscom.com and haven't received any further calls. Piece of cake, actually. Give it a try.
This number has been calling my cell phone. I called the number last night and got a recording saying the company (unnamed) makes calls for non-profit agencies. Since non-profits are immune from the "do not call" list I was given the option of leaving a message asking them not to call either for a specific agency (they've never left a message saying what "agency" they're calling me for) or for all agencies. Supposedly it will take a few weeks for them to get my number off the list. You can bet I'll be watching!
Who the heck are these people and why can't they leave us alone?????
at 1018 11 07 2007 call came in from this unknown call phone no 1-602 388- 8058 whyen i answered the phone caller would not make any comments . I dont know how i get these call when i am on do not call list.
No one spoke
Calls everyday, I've never answered.
They call all the time but when I pick up there is no sound for a while then a hangup. V
I called the number back and got a message apologizing and offering to remove me from the list if I leave a message with my number. I did. I also said that I donate to recognized and familiaw charities on a regular basis and am not trusting of random phone calls from a "communications" company.
I've been getting calls from this number for the last 2 weeks - they claim to be some San Diego Charity helping Fire victims (weird that they are in Arizona) if this is what it appears to be (a scam using the SD fires) these people should be killed
Call them back, ask to be removed from the calling list.
i found the website for mds comm. this is their do not call me page if you want them to stop calling them. Apparently they represent many many Christian organizations. mdscom.com
They have called me more times than I can count but I have never picked up. Hopefully submitting my # to their do not call page will work. :)
have called here almost every week day for about 2 wks, we don't pick up for unknown numbers. This is getting very aggravating.
Calls me once every two weeks, hangs up immediately after I answer!
I got two calls from this number this past week on my cell. I didn't recognize the number so I ignored it. Neither time did they leave a message.
A woman called claiming that Barbara Boxer and 20 other powerful Democratic Senators (including Hillary Clinton) had started a bill that would "wipe abortion laws off of state books." They asked me for $100. I told them I didn't know what good that money would do, I'll just write a letter to my Senator. Turns out, the bill does not exist.
They call every day I always wait for a message but they never leave one I am tired of tele-marketers
I just followed Patricia's lead - I filed a complaint with www.donotcall.gov -- hopefully if enough people do this something can be done.
I found their website - or at least MDS website (www.mdscom.com). Registered (AGAIN) to be on their do-not-call list.
I emailed the three people they have on their contact page and told them their tactics are annoying and ineffective, and their business has already created a negative connotation - then pointed them towards this link. I would recommend contacting them: email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com.
Caller was a woman asking for support for a Pro-Life Organization - MDS I think. She stated that Barbara Boxr had just introduced a bill that was going to attack rights of unborn children. Caller said Boxer had upport from Hillary Clinton and about 20 other senators. She also stated that there were 100 house reps backing the bill.
She proceeded to ask me for my credit card information which I declined - (always do this!) I told her to send me information in the mail and I will donate then. They verified my address information over the phone.
I researched the web for any information about abortion bill and barbara boxer - I did not find anything recent. This is probably a hoax!
I am glad I found this site!
i did not pick up and they hung up
I get a couple calls a day and if I answer they always ask for me or my husband, I think the one time they were calling for CARE, so I just went to the donocall site and reported the number, if you get more calls,go and report it and hopefully they can shut them down.
Called at 9:00 at night!
Said they were from Direct Energy.
The company is MDS Communications and they are a fundraising company. If you call the phone number, you can leave a message with your phone number and request that it be added to their do not call list.
I've been getting a couple calls a day for the last few weeks. I tried answering once and there was no answer in the first few seconds so I hung up. They call at all times of day and on weekends. Very annoying.
I recently re-registered with the national "Do Not Call" registry..I urge everyone to keep their registration current
3 times /day but no person speaking
Missed Phoenix AZ(602) 388-8058 10/18/2007 02:07 PM.

No message the first time. Picked up phone second time an it hung up on me.
these people call 4 times a day. i'm starting to get pist off
I am absolutely sick of getting 3-4 calls a day from this number. I am glad to know now who is calling and will pursue getting removed from their list. Thanks for the info.
I have been receiving two to three calls a day from this Arizon number--from the morning hours to as late as 9 pm. If I don't answer, they do not leave a message. If I do answer, they hang up. Awful.
I've been receiving about 4 calls per day from this number for the past 10 days or so. I finally answered one and a woman asked for my husband, mispronouncing our last name. I told her he wasn't in and asked to take a msg. She politely declined and said good-bye.
