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

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
to pay back that bailout money they got.broke ass.i enjoy answering some time just to do that.get a kick out of it.try it.shmoo why dont you call so i can fart in your ear.have some powerful one.good ones when i eat pork and bean.lololololololo.
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.
Wells Fargo Gallop Survey. Said it would take 3 minutes. I declined.
they called me, i answered, "hello" and they hung up. it sounded like they were in a car
Gallup calling my cell number. Wasting my minutes.
Caller asked if it was mt cell phone and then if I was a licensed driver? Then he excused himself that he was having problems with his computer and hung up. Hope he wasn't a phone number hacker. See if I get a bill from a call to Bezerkistan!
Interesting....I just registered for the DNC list and now I am getting calls from this #!
I don't answer calls from unknown numbers, but I don't like to get them. The key to knowing that a machine is calling is that the phone never rings more than three times.
I want these calls to stop, or I'm taking my money out of your bank. AM I CLEAR?
Hey shmoo, you are a jerk. Why don't you get a job other than monitoring the "who called us" list.
Have no idea who this is, probably a telemarketer. I'm reporting them since I am on the do not call list.
To gdawg: You are also a moron; it\'s Gallup.
Focus on the problem instead of attacking other people.
it's gallop "POLL" not "pole" u moron (mw)
Was not at home when they called, they did not leave a message. Probably taking poll on candidates, which excludes you from the "Do Not Call List". Don't you just love it!!!!! We've been on the DNCL since it was started, and that's the only calls we get.
They called my cell phone every day for several days. They did not leave a message. I am registerred on the do not call list, but they have called anyway.
Call every day for a week now, I don't answer, no message left. I don't see why they call me, I'm on the do not call list. But I guess that's not important.
They keep calling and I am on the do not call list
Did not answer. I am on Do not call list
The Wikipedia has some great info like this:
"There are many polling organizations. The most famous is the Gallup poll, created by George Gallup.
Other major polling organizations in the United States include:
National Opinion Research Center
Pew Research Center "
I love it when the phone rings and there is a pollster on the other end who wants my opinion. I'm not happy with the way a lot of things are being handled these days, but venting to my friends does nothing useful. By taking one ten minute poll I am representing the opinions of 100,000 people. My picks, my choices, my favorites, my point of view. It's fantastic!
My family was a Nielson family when I was kid and it blew my mind that what I personally liked to watch was helping decide which shows continued the next season, and whic would be cancelled. Hide from your phones if you like, it's just that much less representation for grouchy, phonophobic hermits everywhere.
I got a call from this number on my cell. I wasnt in the room at the time.
3rd or 4th time they have called me. I also am on the do not call list. Lots of good that does. I used to be a Wells Fargo customer, so I can go along with that ID.
If you call the number back, you get a detailed message about who they are (a legitimate opinion polling organization), and an opportunity to press "1" and leave them a message saying you'd rather not receive calls from them. That's what I did.
A general comment: Just because you signed up to be on the Do Not Call registry, that doesn't mean you can expect to receive no unsolicited phone calls! Nonprofit organizations, pollsters, political candidates, and companies with whom you've done business in the past are all free to call you. You'll want to speak with someone from the organization or company (or leave a message with them) asking them to stop calling you. Complaining to the FTC about them won't do anything.
The FTC can act only if a company or an illegitimate concern keeps on calling you after you have asked them to stop contacting you.
I think the aforementioned information should be posted on this web page. It seems many people who comment on here are unaware of it.
Received a call, picked up and caller hung up.
This number has called me a couple times this wee k and I am on the Do Not Call List.
I received a few calls from this guy. Says he's with Gallup and wants me to take a 7-10 minute poll. He knew one of my partner's name too and that we were subscribers to Lexis Nexis. I called 402 952 4444 back and received an auto message that described their services and giving their website of gallup.com. We are on the do not call list. He has called a few times previously and I didn't take or return his calls. He (or somebody) sent an email a couple of weeks ago asking me to take an electronic survey and i declined. This guy clearly has too much info and is worthy of reporting.
They asked about Alcoholic Beverages. Survey took about five minutes. No big deal.
They have called three times in the past five days. Did not pick up. They are calling a cell phone WTF?
Just was called by this number but I didn't answer it, so I don't know what they wanted.
This number has called repeatedly and as soon as my answering machine picks up they hang up. I am on the Federal and State Do Not Call lists and this goes on many times at all hours. It is really annoying and I need to know who to report them to.
Have received many calls from this number. I have never answered it. They have never left a voicemail. I am on the do not call list. I do not know this number and from what I can see through all these complaints they should not be calling me.
i don't answer calls from numbers i don't recognize, and they didn't leave a message.
These jerks were told NOT to call our number but they still continue to call and ask for our business owner by name, they try to pretend they "know us" and are not very forthcoming with information. LOW LIFE LOSERS!!
Shmoo, are people allowed to have opinions against telemarketing and tele polls? Why don't you have some medication and stop worrying about other peoples opinions. We don't have to answer the phone if we find out from this site the caller is a pollster or telemarketer. You work for Gallup or Wells Fargo?
The woman on the phone said she was working on behalf of the federal government and that I had been randomly contacted in order that they find about about issues of the day that concern me. After being notified that the conversation would be recorded, I told her my objection to this and ended the call.
Called to ask if I was at a wachovia bank location recently.
I am on the list and get repeated calls from this number
It's not a telemarketer. It's the Gallup Pollsters and they're looking for someone in your house willing to answer questions for their polls.
I heard voices and noises in the background, but no one ever spoke after I said, "Hello" twice. Nothing showed up on my caller ID, either. They called my cell phone!!
Because you are on the "do not call" list doesn't mean that people you don't know can't call you. If you're on the list look up the rules.
Ash if I we were opening a new account. Any place that we can complain?
GALLUP FOR SURVEY LEFT NO MESSAGE - ON MY PRIVATE CELL NUMBER - I CALLED THE NUMBER AND RECVD MESSAGE - HOW DO I REPORT AS I AM ON THE GOVMT DO NOT CALL LIST
I've been called three times in three days on my cellphone, but have not answered the call. Since I have a business relationship with Wells Fargo, I called and verified that they do not have a record of my cell phone number. I'm also on the do-not-call list, so it seems clear this telemarketer is breaking the rules.
Shmoo obviously has issues because they seem to be obsessed with ranting at people who merely seem curious at finding out what this number is for.
i googled it because i am in the middle of interviewing, and some companies require gallup tests, but it was merely coincidental. i got three calls in three days all around 8pm or so. it was helpful to read everyone's response to the call because it helped me place the phone call, not as a gallup TEST but as a POLL since none of my interviewers wanted me to take the test after all.
Shmoo--get a life dude.
i just received a call from this number;don't answer unknown callers, though
Wow. Shmoo sure has a lot of aliases and a lot of time on his hands. I'll be glad when school starts again.
I am reporting because I am on a do not call list.
Comes in as Gallup on caller ID.
This number called asking to speak with my handicapped daughter who is incapable of talking on the phone. What jerks!
called last night, called again this morning. did not leave messages.
i called the national gallup headquarters and demanded to be removed. stay tuned.
im sick of your little bull sh@# games my parents arent ever home thjere dead dont call again
if you call again ill flip the f@#ck out!
Called my parents home first and then my cell phone. My dad, the big security watcher immediately called my phone and left a message with the caller's name, who they were with, what they wanted, and not to give anything out. WHen they called I didn't answer and they didn't leave a message.
They called me about my satisfaction with Fifth Third Bank www.53.com and all they asked me was if I had banked at the Poseyville, IN branch in the last month. At first I couldn't remember where it was, then I figured it is in Posey County and I've never used that branch. After I answered that one question they hung up so quickly they were still saying goodbye. That branch was robbed a few weeks ago, I wonder if that had anything to do with their questions.
On the DO NOT CALL list
Probably a telemarketer, I will no answers the call.
Iam on the Do Not call list
i am on the do not call list... but since it is a political poll the do not call does not apply to them... just accept the harrasment.. there is nothing you can do.
I am on the do not call list. Received this call toady. They didn't even let the phone ring more than once.
Why would I give them information they are going to sell for free? IF they don't intend to pay be for my time, I feel no reason to be civil.
Purportedly a survey on behalf of PNC bank and Gallup.
Have had numerous calls from this number when we were not home. I answered today and they indicated they were performing a survey on the beverages we drink. I was asked for ages and gender of people in household. When supplied they indicated the computer had picked the youngest member of the family who was not home so he siad he couldn't do the survey with me. Let's see if they stop calling for a while. We are on the DNCL also but believe it doesn't apply to these people. However, unsolicited calls of any type are a nuisance to me!!!!!
Hey thanks Shmoo! I got calls from this #, looked it up on Google...ended up here and actually learned something. Next time they called, I just took their survey, they were very pleasant about it and we both went on our merry ways. Wasn't so hard once I understood what it was about. And yes, they are just doing their job :-)
got the same type call yesterday. We too are on the Do Not Call List. This is so irritating.
i do not like phone call.
Call to a cell phone and this is an UNWANTED call.
I am on the national do not call list. i'm reporting them for this reason.
I love sex with other asians.
I've been probed by aliens.
They weren't legal either!
Called me 3 days in a row. one of the calls made at 11:30pm. never answered, no massage left.
I've had two calls from this number on my cell phone in the past two days. Just the number appears. i won't answer calls from numbers i don't recognize.
I didn't answer when they called, but when I tried to call it back later that evening, my cell phone kept saying "call failed". They must have a block that won't let you call back
As a gay-homosexual, I LOVE receiving anal sex!
Once I had a gerbil up my pooper.
I enjoy giving good rusty trombone's
I get a phone call on my cell phone, which is unlisted, at 7:30 on a Sunday night? What crap.
As a lesbian I love to eat muff.
My boobies are small though.
I also have a yeast infection.
I just had a call and I am also on the do not call list
they've been calling several times a day for the last couple of days...very annoying....and I'm on the do not call list...
This number has called me three times this week and I can't call it back. They don't leave a message. How retarded and how the hell did they get my cell number?
I had sex with my brother!
He's got 8" and I taped it!
I was born a crack baby!
i am on do not call list they called. DO NO CALL AGAIN
Becaused I whined like a little girl, and lied because I REALLY know they didn't call me 14 days straight, and that I'm TOTALLY ignorant of the do not call list, I never get laid!
I also have a small weiner!
I get a call from these people every single day for 2 weeks now at 4 pm and I am on the do not call list
Gallup called me for a survey! It was fun!
Since they called, I get laid all the time now!
Called me at 8pm and left no message
This number called me today. It was a survey from a call I made to Wachovia.
I received a call from this number three times in one day. When I answered the call; the last time, the unidentified male stated that he was calling from BankAtlantic and wanted to speak with the main account holder.
they've called twice in two days-- you'd think they'd leave a message..
"People have a right not to be imposed upon!!!!"
After reading the Bill of Rights, Im curious to know what Amendment that is?
Who is Schmoo?
Only showed up once on my caller ID [phone number and "Gallup"] - 3/23 at 5:15pm. No big deal. Looked their number up only because I was looking up some unidentified numbers. But having read the comments, now I'm wondering about "Schmoo" and whether the guys in the white coats should be on alert.
Hey Shmoo...do you work for Gallup? Talk about stressed out...you need to lighten up! People have a right not to be imposed upon!!!!
I don't have a phone just for chit chat. Don't really have the time. My phone is there for when my family and friends need to reach me for a reason. So if I don't want to waste my time talking to telemarketers, opinion takers, or bill collectors [because I am currently on disability and can't keep up on all my bills at the present and am getting royally screwed by my credit card companies and their permanent "default" interest rates], then it is my right not to answer my phone if I don't want to. I don't always answer the phone when my family calls. If I'm in the middle of something or in the bathroom, they can leave a message and I'll call them back. Can't believe my brother has a phone in his bathroom! I bet "Schmoo" does too!
So, you're saying they called EVERYDAY for a week. 7days in a row they called. They called twice during Dinner.
1. Of those 7 days they called, why didn't you answer it? It's the Gallup Poll trying to get your opnion.
2. You think the know when EVERYONE in the country eats? My dinner is at 10pm.
3. If you would have answered 7 days ago then they probably would not have called during dinner, now would they?
Lighten up people.
Get a brain.
It's a phone call.
How would you react under something REALLY stressful?
We are on the do not call list and this number has been on my caller ID every day for a week. They called twice this evening during dinner.
they are calling on my cell...
I got a call but I didn't pick up. They didn't leave a message
Stop crying People! It's a phone call!
Didn't leave a message? Think about it. If every Gallup Interviewer left a message on everyone's answering machine how much time do you think that eats up not talking to people?
You wanna know what they're calling for? Answer the phone and find out!
It's easy. Just do this;
Now... wasn't that easy?
these people called me two days in a row. no message just called
I don't answer these calls; wish they would stop.
Wow, you guys need medication. It's a phone call. They don't know when EVERYONE eats. They don't know when EVERYONE sleeps.
They're a great American company with long tradition getting people's opinions.
The Do Not Call list is only for telemarketers selling stuff. Read the fine print.
Get Medication if you can't handle it.
If a phone call gets you this upset, what happens if something of real significance happens in your life?
Called at 8pm on 3/19/07 and 10:30am on 3/20/07. Did not answer either time. Will report to DNC complaint website.
I called the number left on my cell phone's caller ID. The message said it was the Gallup Organization. I'm on the do not call list and it chaps my hinie that they're calling to use my cell phone minutes!
unfamiliar number, let my machine interrcept the call, hang up immediately after...I am on the "do not call" list.
They wont stop calling!
I am on 24 hr call in. I sleep when I get the chance!
DAMN!! 8:34 at NIGHT!!!!
Woke me up thinking I had an Emergency call in Now I can't back to sleep cause I am so pissed off!!!
They told me they have the right because they are not selling anything just getting opinions.
How about I ask you gallup which end do you want me to stick this phone in?
How about that for a poll question?!?!
BTW, Gallup, I also am on the do not call NDNCR list!
When I they going to make Telemarketer filters for phones?
Reporting, as on Do Not Call list
Gallup always calls at supper time and have been calling 2-3 times daily. My number is blocked, so how do they get my number?
was questioning about my bank, some guy who indentified himself as Mark? I did not entertain him.
Yes, this # is a Gallup Poll call center in Nebraska. The second time they called, I answered, and it was a legitimate customer satisfaction survey for Wachovia. The ploy of using a fake # in caller ID is an unfortunate necessity for market research and public opinion polling, and is a response to "Privacy Manager" systems that are triggered by Caller ID.
The market research call center I recently retired from went to such a system last year, and after that change was not wasting considerable interviewer time identifying us verbally on "Privacy Manager" systems, a process that took 30 sec to a full minute each time.
please remove 610-377-2712
I got a phone call from these folks on 3-8-07 to my cell phone. I am on the national do not call list - home & cell numbers. What the hell is this about?
It's 7:15 here and this is the second time they've called. The first time they woke me up from a nap (pregnant with baby #2, don't get much sleep because of son!) and this time was as I was eating dinner.
I'm also on the do not call list. How do we report them?
This number called me twice in the last 2 days. Never answered and thought I'd google the number and found this page.
called several times during a span of 5 days straight. keeps on calling back
caller said she was from 5th3rd bank. i told her i wasn't home and i could take a message, old bag 4029524444
Reported this number once, but they've called me twice in the last two days.
This # came up as a missed call. I work at a Bank and for customer service reasons my company does have people to to see what kind of service they were provided with. Not bothersome at all.
I'm on the "do not call
list" - reporting them.
Calling us non stop for the last three days....surprising despite being on the do not call list.....its insane
Calls often, never anyone there when we say hello. Leaves no message.
What does that have to do with anything?
What calls are you NOT supposed to get?
Before you answer make sure you KNOW.
If you don't want ANY unwanted calls, turn off your ringer or get rid of the phone.
You people are such whiners.
Are there more important things in life to worry about than Gallup calling for you opinion?
Whatever happened to answering the phone, listening and say thanks or no thanks?
What are you people afraid of? Honestly!
Gallup. I am also on the no call list.
Why don't you answer the call and just ask? Pretty simple.
You have been advised.
please advise, I am on the do not call list. I do not understand why these calls are so frequent.
found the number on my cell phone caller id. 8:37am cst
gallup, pollsters, and political orgs can call and we can only ask them to take us off their list
Read it and weep, baby;
I, too am on the Do Not Call list and received a call from this number but did not answer and looked it up here. thanks
Gallup a scam? WTF? You've never heard of Gallup? If Gallup is calling to do a customer satisfaction survey for Wachovia, why would you think Gallup would know all that information?
Jeepers! Here's a brite idea! Why don't you Google Gallup, call them up and ask if they do surveys for Wachovia.
Hey, here's another idea! Why don't you call Wachovia and ask THEM if they use Gallup?
Doesn't require much education dude...
They keep calling for my g/f from wachovia bank. Asking if she's in, when I say no, they ask if there's a joint account holder. If they work for the bank, they should already know. I smell a damn scam.
First read this and look at #31 www.ftc.gov Read the fine print dorks! They are not solicitors!
If you pick up the phone and don't say anything, what do you expect? If I call a friend and they just p/u the phone, I call them back!
What are you people afraid of? If you don't want ANY calls, get rid of the damn phone! READ THE FINE PRINT ABOUT THE DNC LIST!
If they ask for someone by name and you say they are not home, there's a good chance they will call back. The chances are it's just them getting your OPNION about something.
THINK about it. If you had a buisness wouldn't you like to know what your customers thought?
People need to just chill out. It's a phone call.
also on do not call list
report this call to your attorney general. Usually you just leave a message with them and what was said, what time they called and they will take care of it.
I start receiving these calls around November. I get them sometimes 4-5 times a day. Once I pick up and there is silence. So I just hang up. It started with unknown caller, then gallup then unknown again.
Caller ID showed O for name and did show # on computer, and phone showed nothing for both.
Ignored the caller, and set them up with Solicitor message and hang-up, based on what I found here
Gallup called from this number both today and yesterday. I didn't answer yesterday, but today I answered, the person asked for my husband, but said there was no message when I told them he wasn't here.
I didn't answer the phone since I didn't know the number. They called 1-31-2007 at 8:55 p.m.
I didn't answer the phone because, I didnt know the number. The caller didnt leave a message...
Number was on my cell phone.
Every phone company across the country is different. Some phone companies show it's Gallup, some don't. They do identify themselves. When you answer that's the first thing they say. Obviously it at least showed the # otherwise you wouldn't be here. What's the difference if your caller ID shows the name of the caller or not? What are you afraid of? You go to the phone, pick it up and say "hello?" into it. Not to frightening, is it?
If it really is the Gallup Poll, why don't they ID themselves as such? Might answer it then. ID'd as "Unknown name", various times 01/10/07 to 01/20/07.
Sniff, Sniff... cry,cry.. Mommy! Someone called me for my opinion! I'm scared! Mommy, The phone called and it was someone I don't know! What do I do?
Jeepers people.. it's a call to get your opinion. They're exempt from the Do Not Call Registry. Read the fine print and take your meds for goodness sake!
Ridiculous! Why even bother to register on the "do not call" if they call anyway?? JERKS!
The only reason they are calling is you recently did business with a company that has hired them to do follow up calls for them. So being on a do not call list is not going to help as they are calling in response to business you engaged in.
But mainly, businesses just trying to find out how to better serve you. Not a big deal.
The past two days I have received phone calls from them. I have caller ID and the number shows up with the Gallup.
2 more calls rec'd 12/28 & 12/29
I called the number after they called here 3 or so times a day for a few days. A recording says that they are the Gallup poll, and that I can be assured they'll be calling again. I bet they will.
received call 12/28/06. caller not identified. Number is do not call registered.
They called today, left no message.
i'm on the DNC list, the list doesn't pertain to survey calls...bummer.
Thank you Amy! Remember people.. IT'S A FREAK'N PHONE CALL!!! If you get this upset over a call you need medication. If you don't want calls disconnect you phone and quit whinning.
PEOPLE DOING TELEPHONE SURVEYS DO NOT APPLY TO THE DO NOT CALL LIST. The do not call list applys to telemarketers that are selling things. Poll takers such as theses and venture data 3 do not apply and they will call you unless you verbally tell them DO NOT CALL ME!
They have called now 3 times in the 4 days...I haven't answered one yet. Im sick of it! I am on the DO NOT CALL LIST as well!
Hey dorks. Read the fine print before you complain. www.ftc.gov Look at #31. Also if you got a call on your cell phone, don't ever give the number as a contact number or forward your home number to it. Besides, why are you all afraid of a phone call? It's just a phone. get over. LOL...
they called my cell phone
GALLUP keeps calling the last call was 2006-12-7 @8:04pm
gallup poll .. asked for me by name but i told them they had the wrong number/
Georgia - unknown - called on 12/4/06 & 12/5/06. on the 4th, identified themselves as Gallup
Caller ID read "Gallup". Male voice asked me about my satisfaction with a recent transaction at my hometown BANK!!! (mentioned the bank by name). We are also on the NDC list, but it seems to make no difference to these folks.
I've received a couple of calls lately. No messages left. How annoying. Oh well.
hang ups 4:41 pm central 2006-11-28 and 2006-11-27 9:50 PM; I did the do not call list over a year ago.
I have gotten this message numerous times over the past two weeks - with call ID I do not answer because I don't recognize the number and once the answering machine comes on, they hang up - I am on the do not call list.
Who are these people they call everyday and then hang up when i answer but i can hear someone on the line
I got a call from this number with Gallup as the ID. What is this page about? I am on the do not call list and pay for a private number
It's Gallup. They were taking a survey of my experience at my local walmart. was in a good mood, so i took it. i am on the do not call list though. wasn't a big deal, he was really nice.
Same number, four times in 24 hours. I kept missing the call but there was no message. I tried here and low and behold...
WE KEEP TELLING THESE PEOPLE WE ARE NOT INTERESTED, THEY CALLED AGAIN TONIGHT. THEY WANT TO DO A SURVEY ON THE GROCERY STORES IN OUR AREA. WE ARE RURAL AND DON'T EVEN HAVE PAVED ROADS OUT HERE!
I'm on the do not call list. Comes up as Gallup and stating they are doing a survey.
I am tired of getting unknown callers when we are on the no call list
GALLUP is a reputable market research company. The national Do Not Call register does not apply to them.
I know its annoying but it's not illegal for them to call so try and be nice to the people that call if you refuse to be interviewed. They're just doing their job and they don't earn very much money.
Google led me here. Just received call on my Sprint cell phone. I am also on the Nat'l DNCL. 11/7/06, 8:33 cst. Did not answer the call.
has called every day for 5 days no message on machine, today my wife ans and asked who was calling and she said i wasnt home and i wasnt interested and the rude lady said she would call me back again.
This was from Gallup on behalf of Toyota Financial.
I let it go to the answering machine. They didn't leave a message. Caller ID says GALLUP. I googled them. It looks like they do pre-election polling numbers.
Gallup Pole called and said that they were calling on behalf of my Bank loan, I had told them to give me their name and phone # and that I would call them back, They hung up !! Beware of this Co.
Have no idea who this is. No msg left. I'm on the do not call list, so I'm reporting them since this is probably a telemarketer.
He said Hi how are you doing. Like yeh as if you
know me. Then continued i'm from your local Walmart.
Like yeh as if you know where I shop.
Very suspicious if he is using more than one MO or line about where the call is coming from. Lets catch this dude and stop him cold.
Got a call from this number, said he was from Wachovia Bank, call was at 8:30 PM. Said he was customer satisfaction Rep.
didn't answer as I didn't know the number. I am also on the NDNCR.
I get a couple of calls from this number on my cell phone each week but I never answer. Latest call was 10/30/06 at 7:51 (EST)
I didn't know who this was at first, then I started thinking. It's someone calling to do a survey about how my service was the other day when I opened my checking account. The guy warned me about them. It's kinda ironic b/c I'm doing a report for college and some of the info I used was from the Gallup poll website. Ha! They are just survey people!
I am on the do not call list, whom ever this is should not be able to call.
I am a Verizon customer...ignored the call because I didn't recognize the #...they didn't leave a msg
Have no idea what they want, do not do surveys. Called on cell, used up minutes.
they called twice under GALLUP
On dnc for cell & home!! Why must they get around everything done to protect the people? I have had it!!
Hate telemarketers! Now Gallup poles? Can't we have any privacy? on do not call & did report each one that calls...
They were taking a survey on adult beverages, i.e., beer, wine, spirits. Asking how many and what brand in the last week, month, 12 months, etc.
Calls everyday. I don't answer calls from #'s I don't recognize. Waste of time!
I recived a call from this # and I just keep hanging up on them. These people just can't take a hint!
Telemarketer no doubt. I am reporting them as I am on the DNL. Wish they would just leave everyone alone.
If you have ever signed up with any kind of online survey/marketing group,you more than likely consented to being called at the # whic you provided. if not, keep reporting them. However, since they are not technically selling anything, they are not tele-marketing. You can thank your cell phone carrier, with exception to Verizon, for selling your number.
did answer using up my cell minutes
no idea...Area code says Nebraska. I thought only 10 people lived in Nebraska..
Don't know who they are but the calls are getting out of hand.
Two days in a row I received a call from this number. Gallup Poll for Wal Mart. I informed them that I was on the NDNCR
Have called everyday in the last 4 days.
Came home and found this number on the caller ID with only "Unknown Name"
We too are on the National Do NOt Call Regtister
On the Do Not Call List
Another telemarketer!!! Called me 3 times today--is 3 some kind of magic numer for them, cuz they all seem to be doing it...
I'M ON THE DO NOT CALL LIST
i received a call from this # 8/24/06
i hung right up since a had another one a few days ago
i think it says push a # for english , another for spanish zip 89060
They just called, and I'm also on the do not call list.
Gallup as in the frequently mentioned "Gallup Poles". I know that they were calling me to a job satisfacion survey in conjunction with my employer.
Have no idea who this is, probably a telemarketer. I'm reporting them since I am on the do not call list.
Probably a telemarketer, I am reporting them since I am on the do not call list
