The phone is ringing, and I don't recognize the number, All Caller ID says is, "NAME UNAVAILABLE".
Please help me figure out who is calling and what they want
GALLUP ORGANIZA |
galluporganiza calls from 1 phone numbers:
If it is not important enough to leave a message, then it is not important enough to dial my number in the first place. Stop calling me!
On do not call list. I don't give out my cell number to anyone except family, close friends and work. These people are violating the Do Not Call registry. Why aren't these laws being enforced? Time to call our congressmen, oh yea, that's right, they are busy taking vacations!
BEWARE! Caller ID will be "Gallup Organization" and may be lower-wage hired personnel. They may ask for you by name; before identifying yourself ask them to identify themselves. They’ll probably tell you they are from your bank (or according to comments found elsewhere, that they’re from your hospital/doctor’s office etc). If you want, you can tell them that the person they’re asking for "isn’t there". They will then attempt to obtain personal information. An example might be, "Is there another name on the account?" Do NOT answer ANY questions! Call your bank (or medical provider, etc.) and if you’re told "We hire them for surveys" complain strenuously; add that your next call would have been to the Federal Trade Commission (and that you had been seriously considering terminating your relationship with your bank). Insist that your institution remove your name and phone # from all usage of this type. You have this right under the laws governing Privacy of Information.
That's basically a fraction of the very rich; any distribution that you business is a lot of info about him.,
WELLSFARGO GOONS SNOOP POLICE..............WELLS FARGO WHY ARE YOU ALLOW GALLUP POLL TO CALL.......--WILL NEVER PICK UP THE PHONE EVER IF THEY CALL BACK
Gallup poll called claiming they were calling on behalf of Wells Fargo asking questions/// Scamming con white american male calling to get info and not giving out any
Stop calling. I'm not going to answer . It's Sunday ! I don't do biz with them,
Jeebus! I work for one of the 5 Gallup call centers. The DNC list does not apply to anyone you do business with. Read it. If you are going to be angry with anyone, be angry at the business that gave us your number. We are NOT ALLOWED to leave messages. We couldn't care less about you at all.We are just doing our job.
They call usually at 8:30 PM and never leave a message.
Called my at 7:38pm asked for me by my legal name. Would not say who they were.
Got a missed call on my cell phone! No one left a message!
This number called me claiming to be "Gallup poll calling on behalf of Regions" and wanted to do a brief survey about my experience at my Regions bank yesterday. (Yes I do bank at Regions and I was at my bank yesterday; seemed legit.) I agreed to the survey but when I advised that I had only gone through the ATM and didn't see a teller, I was promptly hung up on. Sheesh.
This is a polling company called Gallup.
Wells Fargo Survey
This number wanted to tango me.!!! Did not answer
Got call from 402-952-4444 today at 4:20 pm
and yesterday i mistakrnly answered a call from 458-201-1273. Both to my cell.
Now i have them labeled as Scam2 and Scam3 and previously Scam1 605-889-0527.
Another one added to my blocked calls. Why don't these bums just get real jobs?
Calls and doesn't leave massage and calls late at night
called many times a day for a week. coming through as international call from Germany. seems like a person(s) scamming, not a company ... with a fake local US number.
Call several time a day even night times,say nothing
Didn't pickup, this is second call I am getting. No message left
Has called my cell repeatedly - missed call:4 days in a row, each day is one or two hours later than previous day. Only rings twice, never a message.
WhitePages Rev. Lookup now says this number belongs to "Sydney Chasin", but NONE of the other information ('full listing', 'see in map', or anything else*) seems to be working.. except the ads (surprise). When I click 'On' "Sydney Chasin", a pic of an older man & woman are shown, but that's it. "WhoCallsMe" says it's from GallupPoll, Omaha,NE (like noted in these posts*)... but dexKnows Whitepages RevLookup still shows "Sydney Chasin", in FLORIDA.
So much for looking this up on the computer ...
missed call, no msg
I do not know anyone in Nebraska, thanks but, no thanks.
My cell # is on the National DO NOT CALL REGISTRY, however, these obnoxious folks continue to call my #--I don't answer unknown calls..they NEVER leave a message..
Called my cellphone twice today. One missed call and the second I was with my phone. It was some kind of survey the woman said and I told her I did not like calls like this on my cell phone and declined to answer questions.
This is a phishing scam. If you get emails from "Wells Fargo" as well and you do not have an acct with Wells Fargo, I'd suggest you stay very clear. They seem to be asking banking questions. Those who answer yes, that they were in one of their banks, used one of their ATM's/Kiosks, or who have checking or any accts, they'll eventually try to get you to give your banking info to "correct" the situation. DO NOT respond to these calls. In fact, I urge you to contact Wells Fargo and complain that you are going to switch banks because of this. The only people who will have enough power to get rid of these fake callers is Wells Fargo themselves. This goes also for FedEx. Same thing. There's a scam going to that too.
I have a mortgage with wells fargo, and I see others say it is a wells fargo survey; however a reverse look up shows a residential(?) number registered to sydney chapin. The number has appeared on my caller ID 4 times during the week of 5-14, 3 times at 6:30 pm and one time at 8:45pm. Weird.
Number shown on caller ID was 309 402 952 4444
Asked about banking activity, if I made a transaction on a particular day. Didn't have time to converse at the time. Also called earlier and didn't leave a message.
Call hang up at 530 pm PDT.
Called me on my cell phone at work. Didn't answer. My number is on the do not call list. I am hoping this isn't because I opened a new account with PNC.
The number is now in my computer program PhoneTray which will answer this number the next time they call, give them a piece of my mind, and hang up. All that's needed is a Fax/Data/Voice/CallerID modem and the program. Check it out at: www.phonetray.com
I said I'm not on the "do not call list"...they said "ma'am I'm not selling anything"...REALLY??? Wells Fargo isn't selling anything?? If your not selling anything, then why are YOU calling me?? I don't have an account with them!! How dare these companies think it's okay to use up our dollar on something we don't want. If I want your services...I'll call you!!
I just start sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ. Drive them nuts!
Very annoying to say the least. Why aren't things like this stopped or penalize the company that keeps calling.
hung up on me, seems strange if it's wells fargo
comes up as "Gallup Poll" asking for my husband. Said he wasn't here. Then he asked me if I have a wells fargo credit card. Told him no. He asked me if I was on a joint account with my husband... then asked me if I was just at the wells fargo on ""street name"" in the town of ""town name"". Told him no ; he said thank you and just hung up.
Download Mr number app to block
I have received calls from this number at random times of the day and night. But wasntnsure who was calling and didn't want to answer. thought if it were important enough they would leave a message.
How does one get them to stop calling!
this number keep calling me and it is getting annoying.
Asked about Bank activity at a non existant branch of Wells Fargo
said they were from the bank that my dad uses. when he told them to talk to me then they hung up
I was at work when a woman named Lindsey said she was calling doing a quick Gallup poll. I needed a break anyway so I said I didn't mind. She then asked if I had used my local bank account card on a specific date in question. I was very worried and replied that I absolutely had not. She then asked if someone else was joined on my account had made a withdrawal. I told her absolutely not. She seemed flustered and said those were the only questions she had, then thanked me for my time.
I saw someone else had a similar post from 2 months ago to the same effect, so if anyone has advice or suggestions for next steps, I would be very grateful. Thanks.
This phone number is on the national do not call list. Please leave me alone - I don't do surveys
Sure seems sad that even if one registers a number with the "Do Not Call" list, it still gets called by a computer program. What is one to do?
seriously, stop calling me. i don't want anything to do with your stupid survey.
I got call from this phone number, a guy was the other end and he said he works for Gallup Poll.
He wanted to do a survey about "quality of life".
These arrogant people have the audacity of calling every day for the last week with no message... Like we don't have enough to deal with in Sandra aftermath
Message light indicated a missed call on my home phone ... but no message. Caller ID registered this #.
Trying to find it using a "reverse # look-up" at White pages said it couldn't find the number (but of course I could go & buy a report from Intellius...what a joke). After determining the 402 area code was not going to result in an international call, I dialed back, and a recording says it's the Gallup poll organization...and they would have asked for participation in a survey. Don't know whether to believe or not ... if its a legit #, why can't you find it except on sites like this or 800 notes etc ?!?!?
Call once or twice a day for several days. Really annoying especially with its 4444 number! Can the official or the police do something with their spam calls?
Hospital phone and need to stop with surveys. Asking if voting for obama. Personal.
Are you kidding??!!
I did not answer.
Asked if I was _____ (Me). I said no. U have the wrong number. She said thanks, hung-up.
I added # to my block list on my Ph. I now have 6 on my Blocked calls. It does not ring, but they can leave msg. if they wish, which I promptly delete.
Received a call from this number who claimed to be from US Bank. She asked if I was this person and I said yes. She then inquired about a deposit made on a certain date and if I did that deposit (which I didn't). She then asked who did the deposit and I gave the person's first name only. She then asked if I had his number. This was a last and final question I was gonna answer. This was more of an interrogation than anything else. I didn't answer her last question and asked her what this is about. She then said this is a "service call"...what ever that means. She asked me again about the deposit's name and I yet again asked again what is this about. She said it's a service call, they wanted to know how he was treated on that day at that branch. So, I said this is a survey then. She yet again said this is a service call...I said it's a survey. She finally said, yes, it's a survey. I told her I didn't have the depositor's number off-hand. She then said thank you and to have a nice day. Her tone and meaner was one of a collection type agency. Very stern...and I don't take well to interrogations. This sounds like a company who does survey's for other companies (such as banks). I really don't like the fact that she knew my full name and that a deposit was done on a certain date.
did not leave mgs
I did not answer the phone when this number called. Like most fraudulent companies, they did not leave a message. I recieve between 1-10 of these types of calls every month ever since I purchased a refrigerator at BrandSmart USA in Florida. The calls come from all over America: TX, CO, NY, NA, OR, CA, IN, OH and others. They all come from different numbers, but they seem to sound the same when I answer. It's usually an automated service that calls. It's silent at first and then an automated voice speaks asking me to stay on the line. Then there is a long wait before someone comes on the line and starts grasping at threads (figuratively speaking), in a harassing and belligerent mannor, trying to somehow swindle money. They try to get me to give them information on others, or somehow convince me to pay other people's aleged debt. Its a scam, but they do their best to sound legit...even though what they are doing is illegal. So I choose not to ansure the phone if I'm being contacted by an unformilure number. Espesually if it's a out of state number. If they ever do leave a message on my voicemail, than I can use it to press charges.
Picked up phone. No one there. The number is now in my computer program PhoneTray Free which will answer this number the next time they call, give them a piece of my mind, and hang up. All that's needed is a Fax/Data/Voice/CallerID modem and the free program. Check it out at: www.phonetray.com
Hmm ... I've received 3 different calls, with Caller ID saying 'Gallup Poll.' However, I think this is bogus. Person answering phone said he was from Wells Fargo, not Gallup, and when I asked to be taken off phone list, he said he didn't have to, and wasn't going to. Gee, that's pretty unfriendly - and downright aggravating. I've asked not to be called, because I consider it harassment & an invasion of the privacy of my home, but whoever this is, continues to harass us.
So ... I don't think this is legit number, or company.
And I've been thinking about some of the 'positive' comments posted on other sites - I'm quite skeptical that these are legit as well. Think about it - who would take the time to look up a number, and post a positive review, unless they were an employee or other agent/rep? I certainly wouldn't. Why would I? It takes a number of 'bad' calls to get me to look up a number. So, unlikely that any 'positive' comments are anything but furtherance of harassment/fraud.
And I don't buy the 'gee, I'm just doing my job.' Plenty of telemarketers, sex traders, polluters, scam artists, etc. are 'just doing their job' as well. Just because you are being paid for work doesn't mean you should be doing that job. And just because you are doing a job doesn't give you license to harass people in their homes. If I ask you to put me on your own internal 'do not call' list, please do so. Quit claiming that because you don't 'have' to, you shouldn't.
And for what its worth, I have degrees in political science and math, and these so-called 'polls' are at best suspect, and at worst are 'push' polls, that bias answers from the get-go -- not objective, or scientifically valid in the first place.
Just say no to these calls.
IF this is survey for Wells Fargo, I`ll give you a survey.YOUR HORRIBLE 200 negative stars for you and THANKS for the $5000.00 screw up on your end.Guess I`m such an idiot thinking that computers can`t EVER EVER go wrong,can they. I don`t know about you, but I don`t have $5000.00 stashed somewhere to cover bills,guess all of my utilities will be cut off.We are fighting with the VA to get my wounded soldier equipment and benefits and if that ain`t a pain in the butt already,I don`t know what to tell you and then to get the run around from Wells Fargo`s customer.service accusing me of all of this being my fault.MY FAULT REALLY!?!?
YOUR computer system unchecked boxes for automatic bill pay.I`ve got enough on my plate and needed help from the bank to make sure my bills get paid and you couldn`t even admit it possibly could have been your computer system.GUESS what jerks, one of your own set it all up for me at my local bank. I wanted to make sure that it was done properly,so I went to our bank and sat down with a rep, he did all of it, but your computers are what runs everything, BUT IT`S MY FAULT. Customers are ALWAYS wrong, according to you. Thanks A$$e$, besides I`m going to move my money over to NAVY fed. I will get (cents).36 % more in interest on my money, better than your 0.01 % interest. Hope your CEO`s are fat and happy, for we can`t even break even for one moment.There`s your survey.yYu Suck.Thanks for making our lives so easy.CUSTOMERS ALWAYS WRONG, RIGHT !?!?
Called my cell, left no message.
The number showed The caller ID as No Name. When i called I received a recorded message and found that the number was the Gallup Poll people. Recorded message mentioned that you are not able to speak to a representative but that they will call you again to ask you to take part in a poll.
Some gal called from this number with "Omaha, NE" and kept saying they were with "(something unintelligible" ). I'm already deaf in one ear and about 70dB loss in my "good " ear, and I kept asking her to repeat it. Even my hearing son couldn't understand her on the speaker phone. It might be "Gallop" as it had that number of syllables. I told her to put my number on her do-not-call list and she said "we do not have a do not call list" and I told her to get one.
She claimed they weren't out to sell anything or were not a telemarketer and I said I didn't care what she claimed she was, when the caller ID information is missing and they are claiming to be some other company, I've no way of verifying the information, so again, please put me on your do not call list. She kept saying they don't have it, and then would say other stuff and speed up so I couldn't understand. I kept telling her I couldn't understand, she was going too fast.
I kept telling her to put us on do not call list and she kept denying they had such a thing, so I basically told her I was going to report their number and hung up on her.
This is not Gallup. This is a scam that keeps trying to ask survey questions to be able to sell you cruises. My advice is to send the info on to the local States' Attorney Generals because it is a scam.
The number actually had a "+" (plus sign) in front of the number and caller ID said Romania. Weird.
called w Wells Fargo survey/ Scam
Biff, please do tell us how a survey firm is able to violate your FDCPA rights, and how your comment is not yet another misfire from a paper mill law firm known for carelessly spamming these unknown caller forums?
Jerkoffs violating my FDCPA rights! I use LEMBERG & ASSOCIATES to successfully sue collectors who violate the law. Money into your pocket and the creeps disappear.
A recorded message from Gallop Poll service.
Recorded message from Gallop Poll.
If I ever find anyone who works for Gallup, I'll skin them with a rusty spoon. Because it hurts more.
ID SHOWs omaha ne have called my cell twice left no message. I never give my cell to anyone but family.
Wait, I cnnaot fathom it being so straightforward.
Caller ID - Out of Area. Did not answer, no message left.
Some stupid survey group wasting my time and minutes. I am reporting them to the do not call list.
I Missed the call and they didn't leave a message so I'll not answer the next time they call.
No message left, unknown name was on caller id with this number.
Hmmm, possibly Wells Fargo, huh? No message, and a caller ID simply of Omaha, NE? Warren Buffett and Berkshire Hathaway are HQed in Omaha, and are substantial shareholders of Wells. Though Buffett does believe in superior customer service, this would seem a little devious, wouldn't you think?
These a--holes keep calling our cell phones, but never leave a message. Good chance they are just phishing for information. No bank (especially Wells Fargo)has our cell phone numbers, so these a--holes are just randomly calling numbers hoping to find a real bank customer. Don't give them any information - they are not legitimate. And do report them to DNC.
ID showed Gallup and that they called twice
Before spewing venom on another surveyor, why don't you try reading the rules you agreed to when you registered your numbers with the DNC list? See items 28 through 32 in particular.
Person refused to give name, stated she was calling for "Local Community Banks". I stated I was on the DO Not Call List & this was a private # & to please remove my #. She gave me a raft of S--T, stated she didn't have to honor the DNC List, as it has nothing to do with her. Like WTF, I hung up & proceeded to add this # to be permanent Block List. These people are complete morons. the DNC List is worthless, just like the current administration.
did not answer
They keep calling my cell, and leave no voice mail. if they were important they could at least leave a message. I do not want them calling back!
People- No one can call your cell phone number without your permission or consent! It is an invasion of privacy.
File a report with the FCC against this number. Document the times, dates and details of the calls with them so they
can investigate and fine the abusers. Cell phone numbers are exempt from public phone listings and are considered private!
This has gotten out of hand since most folks are using cell phones instead of landlines now. It still doesn't mean
businesses can harass a cell phone user. Know your rights!!!
They called our house & asked if I was a "head male of household", "male household" & "anyone over 18", I told them "no" on all counts. I hung up on them after they said that "they will call back." I won't be answering that # again if it ever comes up on my caller ID.
I just got my new cell phone over a month ago. Only a hand full of people know my new number, and none of them are of any business I am doing with any bank or store or monthly bills I pay. I am pretty sure this is phishing. My child, same thing. We just don't answer. :
Called my cell phone. Said they were from Gallup poll.
I keep getting a call approximately daily on my cell phone. Only time I answered person claimed to be Gallup pollster. When I immediately protested that the person was calling a cell phone, they did not respond to to that but instead launched into their spiel. I gave them a piece of my mind and hung up. Alarming to see that they also claim to represent Wells Fargo. This is some kind of fraud that should be shut down by authorities.
I told them 2 days ago I didn't want to partipate in their survey
Not a telemarketer: a pollster. This was a Gallup customer satisfaction poll about the bank I use for my business accounts. That is why they know your name.
Getting calls from this number 402-952-4444 at 8:30pm. Asked my full name and even spelled it to me like he knew me. Come to find out this is another telemarker call and I have no patience for this. 9 mths pregnant and I am being woke up by this company. You tell them not to call back or they have the wrong number and they will not listen. Almost like you have no choice but to change your phone number because they will continue to call you!
Caller said they were from "the gallup organization". They called once a day the last three days. Each time I've asked them not to call back. Say they are taking a "survey of cel phone users". I sent an email to Gallup from their website asking them cease and desist and to make sure their callers are trained how to respond if people ask not to call back.
Surveyors *should* use the DNC list though, since it's available. They always say "we are not subject to that"... but if it's out there and available, it's not *rocket science* that people on that list don't want these kind of calls. (I mean, if the DNC list had "radio buttons" giving you the option of saying "I'll take survey calls, but not sales calls", I suppose there might be some people (probably mostly people who can't read that well, and maybe a few corner cases) who might check the box... but I would expect it to be less than 5%. So a surveyor calling someone on the "dnc" list is probably a very "bad bet" in terms of getting any useful work done, and likely to just generate bad feelings. The fact that the "do not call list" exists and a surveyor calls you anyway shows how much the survey company does not care about who or how they bother people.
UP 'til now I hadn't put my cel on the DNC, but I just did today (although it won't help with this type of call until the legislature (Hopefully) plugs the loophole.
No answer on my cell phone.
Have called my cell 5 times in the past two weeks. I let voice mail screen my calls and no message has been left. My number is also on the DNC.
Pollster asked me a couple of soft-ball political questions, then launched into a group of health-related questions. She didn't like I refused to answer those and hung up. Looks as if they're drumming up info on Obama's Death Panel Healthcare System.
Junk junk junk - hung up - blocked the number - Nice day... Bye bye.
[did not answer]
Call and then they hang up. Annoying as I'm also on the DNC list.
They hung up and I am on the do not call list. Don't know why they would be calling me.
Called and babbled on about a Wells Fargo Survey and recent transactions at Wells Fargo. I think he got the message and finally said he would call back later and hung up.
It's the Gallup Poll. Call the number back and you'll get a message about the call. They also mention Gallup's website. You can leave a message there too.
Idiots called again and hung-up within 5 minutes.
Bank at B of A instead.
This was an unsolicited call made who identified themselves as Wells Fargo. The had noticed that I had called the service center multiple times recently (untrue) I haven't to talked to Wells Fargo for months and generally do do things online when I do have too talk to anyone.
11-20-10 Wells Fargo survey leaving a fake name of Gallup?
11-22-10 Wells Fargo Survey leaving a fake name of Gallup? Get a life Wells Fargo, Peddle elsewhere.
Don't know how this number is accessible to anyone except my friends but I have a nephew in NE, so maybe it leaked out somehow
Gallup survey? I'm supposed to be on the do not effing call list...
I don't like being disturbed. by anyone. ever. period.
The DNC registry is for telemarketers, meaning sales. Charities, debt collectors, political speech, and surveyors are all exempt as they are not included in the FTC definition of "telemarketing". This was made known to you when you registered your numbers. The exemptions can arguably be sales by another name, but that's the rule as written.
I'm on the national do not call list. I get a call from this number at least once a day and sometimes more. I want them to stop calling me. I have nothing to say to them!!!!!
This number calls doesn't leave a message.
Asked this company to remove my name from their call list for the third time and have had 2 calls since. They say they are the Gallup survey group. Who knows?!!
Oh yeah, I'm on the DNCL. Worthless.
I know that this company got my number from circiutpalace.com which took my info from facebook and is sending me emails every minute wholeass bassturds. I know this because that is the only place that had my cell number on it. I also know that they didn't get my number from a internet purchase because I only by locally so WTF.
It's just a phone call. Nothing to get upset about. Well, I have to get off the computer now because my Mom's coming home and she'll get mad. You see, I'm a 45 year old virgin who still lives in his mother's basement. My only satisfaction in life is harassing people and being a dick on these message boards. Oh well, see you later!
This stupid dude need to stop calling me.
So freakin' annoying! He called my home phone so many time!
He needs to stop! >:(
Obviously on some roto/robo-dialer b/c call came in at EXACT same time as yesterday's. Of course no message left, only rang 3X. Won't ever answer anyway.
Received call #5 from this phone number, Caller ID shows up as Omaha,NE. I didn't answer it.
My phone number is still unlisted and is still on the DO NOT CALL REGISTRY LIST!!!!
Another one I won't ever answer. I don't know the number, I don't answer; simple as that.
Received call #4 from phone number 402-952-4444,Caller ID showed up again as Omaha,NE. I didn't answer it. My phone is still unlisted and is still on the DO NOT CALL REGISTRY LIST!!!!
Received phone call #3 from Omaha,NE. I didn't answer it. My phone number is still unlisted and is still on the DO NOT CALL REGISTRY LIST!!!!
Received this call on Sunday at 7:20 PM, caller ID showed Omaha,NE. I didn't answer it, this is the 2nd time I have received this call. My phone number is still unlisted and is still on the DO NOT CALL Registry!!!
Report them to your States attorney General by phone or at their Web site
Also reort your call to FTC
Just received this call, it came up as Omaha, NE. Since I don't know any one out there I didn't answer it.
My phone number is unlisted and is on the DO NOT CALL REGISTRY LIST!!
dont answer unknown calls-no message left so I figured its either a debt collector or solicitor
Today is Sunday. We are on the Federal No-call list. We conduct no business with any legitimate business in Omaha, nor do we have any business with Wells Fargo, if that's who really called. There is no valid reason for this call. Whatever the reason, they can be assured we'll NEVER use whatever they're hyping.
I do not appreciate getting these calls as I am on the "Do not call list".
i received this call on my cell today. who are they? and why do they keep calling
I called the number and it is GALLUP organization about a poll that they want you to take.
Lots of conversation here about telemarketer or not and violations, or not, of the do not call registry. It is my choice to not receive these calls which is why I purchased a cheap PC from eBay and loaded it with a product called audio caller id. They call me once, I block them and from then on they get a dead-end fax tone when they call and I never hear from them again.
this call came in to my cell phone. Do not approve!
They called my cell ... this is not a big deal why does everyone want to report someone for giving a survey? Just give them a few minutes of your time ... heaven forbid we have to miss a minute of TV.
says it's a wells fargo survey
This number (402-952-4444) called me and said they were with Suntrust Bank and was returning my call and then asked how they could help me. Be VERY CAREFUL and do not release ANY information.
How do you report them? I too am on the Do Not Call list and get these calls....
3/6/10: I answered. Identified himself as National Gallup poll. I asked if he knew what # he dialed and he replied that a computer dials randomly and repeated my unlisted home #. I then asked did he know who he was calling and he replied no, so I informed him that I was not inclined to answer questions if he didnt know who he was calling. He thanked me and hung up. They called again 3/7/10 (damn random computer dialing). I added their number to my phones BLOCKED call list. ;)
Left no message. Could be Wells Fargo/Gallup. I have an account at WF.
A little puzzeled about their call. They left no message and have called several times. When I pick up they hang up. Sometimes they call and let the phone ring twice and hang up. I am not wasting a dime to call them back to see who they are but if they are going to call they could at least identify themselves...
They call every day and don't leave a message. I am on the do not call list. How can this be stopped????
Hung up when I answered.
I have received more than one call, one of which I answered and accepted a survey. It does seem a little strange to have such broad variances in lines of questioning, but all in all the only problem I had was being called late in the evening. Called the number back, pressed "1", and left a message with my name, number, and a request to be taken from their lists.
Have recieved several calls this week from this number showing up on Caller ID as Out of Area. Interesting enough, have also gotten some that have shown up as " GALLUP ORG".
look everyone.dont let that call annoy you.see i got on who calledus to see who they are.pick the phone up when you see the number and turn your music up real loud and bust ther ear drums or fart in their ear.i dont want to here nothing about wells fargo.try

The keep calling, never leave a messagg, and are beginning to aggravate me........
Probably survey call because I closed account with Wachovia yesterday. They did not leave a message.
ve no friends so i like these calls.. I'm not joking...
I'm on the DNC and this number keeps calling...it comes up as: GALLUP and UNKNOWN NAME. What good is the DNC?
First of All - this Schmoo character needs to get a life. This is not a CHAT LINE!!
Second - don't tell us to answer our phones... There is a reason why we are on the DNC list its because of IDOTS like you. People have had their identities stolen and we are not about to give out PERSONAL info. Besides that we can tell people stuff till we are BLUE IN THE FACE and no ones listens anyway...including SCHMOO. Thank GOD for caller ID!!!
Third -- I WILL NOT ANSWER my phone on Sunday's for any GALLOP POLL or any idiot beside my own friends and family. I pay for my phone bill and I will answer whomever I fell I want to talk to. Last I checked this was a FREE COUNTRY!!!
After reading most of these posting, one thing is very clear. This company does not give up once you answer their calls. Speak another language and see if they can keep up with you, try Italian, German, French or make up your own language. Works everytime.
Gallup calling on behalf of a Medical Center I recently had surgery at. It was a follow up after care survery to evaluate my satisfaction with my stay at the hospital.
wells fargo dosn't call for something like this. this is the same thing i am getting from the #402-982-0771, i turned them into federal trade commission for fraud,they say something about credit card insterest. but it comes from the same place. im on do not call also.
STOP CALLING EVERYBODY RANDOMLY IF YOU WONT TALK WHEN THEY ANSWER
shmu, you ignorant slut!
questions progress from general health to your personal banking?-discontinued at that point-what does your opinion of banks have to do with your well being. duh?, the economy, stupid. whose $ is being spent on this? get rid of this stuff, the irs-go for flat tax-save $
Called to do a national poll; ID read "Gallup"; we are interested in politics and usually do these, but the questions became increasingly strange/personal--not a "typical" opinion poll. For some reason, I am now uncomfortable about answering the questions, where usually I love to give my opinion. I am not at all a paranoid person (or I wouldn't have agreed to do the poll), but I wonder what the heck this was for. Gallup is supposed to be a respectable polling group(which is why they are exempt from Do Not Call); but now I wonder if it really was Gallup. Very strange. Why would they care how many days a week I have my 5 fruits/veggies and whether or not I felt angry yesterday....
This Gallop never give up they have been calling for ever, never leave message.
THey are persistent and wont stop calling after numerous requests to be taken off there list..........
this number has called me every day for the past 4 days. very annoyed.
Do not know anyone from this number or the name Gallup we are also on this do not call list and wish to report them.
They are continuing to call my home. No message left
They called my cell phone, of all the annoying things to do! I wasn't available to answer at the time, though.
Polls and Surverys and Political calls are EXEMPT from the DO NOT CALL LIST aren't we all lucky that our government thought this was important ;-)
Hey shmoo don't you have anything to do but answer peoples online comments. Sounds to me like you are a telemarketer.
This number showed up on Caller ID twice so I called it and got a message that explained it was a poll and they would be trying again to call. It also said that can go to their website at www.Gallup.com. I'am on the do not call list too.
One sure way to get them to stop calling is if they ask for you (your name) tell them they have the wrong #. Works everytime
I am also on the Do Not Call. Wanted to do a survey on my bank. Told them I wasn't interested and do not call back.
How do these boneheads get your cellphone number and what gives them the right to call? I pay for this phone, not them!
Caller id showed Gallup. I did not answer, not home.
An opinion poll company?
Called over the weekend to our church - left no msg.
Some pollster from Omaha asking personal questions about the area we live - not! We're in Canada, eh!
Only the number showed up on caller id. No message left.
No message left...called yesterday @ 6:12pm and today @ 7:03. I missed both calls. They were to my cell phone.
Actual polling org. the DNC registry does not cover polling/charity places so reporting these calls is stupid. call back, get to the recording and it will tell you how to be removed or answer the call and ask to be removed.
Male said he was doing a customer satisfaction survey on my recent experience with Fifth Third Bank. Questions were non-intrusive initially, then he wanted to start another line of questions on other topics, I said no thanks.
The same number called the previous day (unanswered), entry on caller ID showed out of area.
I, too, am on the do not call list.
Wells Fargo Survey about recent visit.
I have a prepid cellphone and this number called me. I called back and got a recording saying they were performing a survey and that by calling that number I could not reach anyone, but not to worry they would try again at another date! How rude, I have a prepaid cellphone, I should not be on any list. Look out for these guys.
You guys are silly. Why don't you read the fine print about the Do Not Call Registry? Understand that you can be called for opinion polls whether you are on the list or not.
Seriously folks, if you freak out about a phone call, you need help. Why not just answer it and kindly tell them to not call anymore. Or is that to easy?
Why are so many of you uptight? What will you do if there's a food shortage and gas is $10 a gallon?
These People keep calling, I keep telling them we are on the DO NOT CALL LIST
I WANT TO KNOW WHO CALLED WITH HELD AT 12:39AM MY NUMBER IS 9852322680
If you call and press 1 to leave a message, you can tell them ur name and number and they will remove you. Someone on another site had said that their doctors office had hired them to do opinion polls about there service. Appearently certain polls and fund raising groups don't count for the do not call lists. Just what i've heard
The call probably twice a day. They need to get a life!!
I am on the do not call list.Do not know who this is , I received a call from this number
in January 2006.they called every day for 3 months, now they are going to start again. this is why I am reporting them.I rec the first call 5/15/2008 .never leave a message.
Called at 12:24pm on 5/5 - left no msg.
How the heck is Gallup? Why is this call occurring?
Bastards keep calling. I am in national do not call registry. They are pissing me off! I am reporting them...again
These guys are easy to block!! They called my husband's cell phone to conduct a survey. I went to the website: Gallup.com and completed the "Contact Us" form, requesting they block all of my phone numbers and listed cell and home numbers. I got the following response within a few hours:
We contacted our long distance provider to have your phone numbers (XXX-XXX-XXXX, XXX-XXX-XXXX, XXX-XXX-XXXX, XXX-XXX-XXXX, and XXX-XXX-XXXX) permanently "blocked" so they can never be dialed by anyone from Gallup again. Please note that this
ON THE DO NOT CALL LIST AND HAVE AN UNLISTED NUMBER
please no more calls if its a survey or poll DO NOT CALL ME ANYMORE!!!!
HEY SHMOO YOU FRIGGEN MORON..LET ME GUESS..YOU ARE THE ONE MAKING ALL THESE CALLS ARENT YA????SAY YOU LITTLE JERK OFF..OR ELSE YOU WOULDNT BE DEFENDING THE CALL..YOU CAN KISS THE CRACK OF MY HINEY...UNDERSTAND??????????????????? NOW GO TAKE YOUR MEDS AND STOP CALLING EVERYONE IN THE USA STUPID RETARD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Started calling daily - a real pain as it's running up minutes on my phone. Will report as I am on the do not call list.
I never answer any calls on my cell from numbers I don't know. So this one will never be answered by me.
it is a gallop poll. i just called them back. a recording says they want to ask you questions and they are not trying to sell you anything. they promise to be brief. i too, am registered with the do not call org. perhaps we should report them.
I keep getting calls from 402-952-4444 and it says gallup on it. Someone said it may be the gallup poll calling for a survey. They never leave a message. It is very annoying that they call more than once per day & for no reason. If they would just leave a message, I may call them back.
gallup, but could be phishers as they mentioned a specific bank and wanted to know who if anyone in the household used it. I told them no one does, and for all I know that's true. I have a terrible memory for places I've been and am generally useless to survey people, people in general. At least the other services have the courtesy not to employ people in their industry. Computers are so much easily ignored. Anyway, there are only two polls which I'm interested in joining and that's my state's primary and General election. I have two disernable grievances with life. A) I work at home and assholes from Gallup are calling me while I work, and B) the government is trying to cut funding in the research/education of my trade.
