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
PAC | P0A1C0 |
pac calls from 5 phone numbers:
This company is a RIP OFF, they had me as a customer years ago for credit card processing, they lied to me up front and had hidden charges for everything you do. I am still paying for a credit card machine I do not use, that has a iron clad contract. They have started calling again NOT IDENTIFYING themselves and just saying they are my credit card processing company and the federal laws have changed and we are due a 35% discount in our rates and they must send someone by to tell me about saving this money. LIE LIE LIE!!! If it is a federal law they would just have to do it. I called my ACTUAL credit card processor and they assured me that this telephone number is NOT associated with them. I have warned them three times today to stop calling, I have called my current processor, my lawyer, and my state's Attorney General about their business practices. THis is nothing but a harrassing company.
I had a problem with Payment Systems calling me in the past and I complained through Facebook and got someone to take me off the call list. I also filed complaints on the DO NOT CALL REGISTRY. The calls started again yesterday and again today. They either get rude or hang up. Horrible company! Here is their Facebook Link... I suggest everyone complain there too. www.facebook.com/PaymentSystemsCorp. They seem to have a lot of likes...let's see how it disturbs their business as much as they RUDELY disturb everyone else!
Caller id "BLOCKED NAME" I don't trust these people
the do not call list is a joke. I get these calls every day
Very annoying people and savage and aggressive . My god they just crazy
Company called and asked for owner. I said you've reached the store number and gave them our office number. Rep kept asking, "are you a corporation."
the company is called payment system corp., they process credit cards for merchants
this phone number just called me, and has called me many times, when I called it back I was able to talk to a person they are a credit card processing company's telemarketing office.
Someone from this number called me 4 times today and hung up when they got the answering machine. I tried calling back but could not get any identifying information. The CID showed up as UNAVAILABLE
Called 3 times within minutes after I told her I wasn't interested.
annoying a holes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I received a telemarketing call from this number, I requested to be. Put on the do not call list. I was told they don't have a listing, to which I told her that they are required by law to put me on the list for five years upon my request. She kept arguing with me so I hung up. She called me back to argue some more. I tried to call the company back to complain, but every option on the call promptly hung up on me!
Very noisy background and won't leave a message or say who they are or where they're calling from.
Unprofessional annoying and relentless.
The pain in the a*s is paymentsystemcorp.com
I finally got thru after a bunch of calls. Go ahead and call them to tie up their lines so they don't bug someone else.
F..kers call and ask if I got the information they sent me regarding I qualify for the discount corporate rate credit card processing... right...... F..en stop calling with your BS scam you scum
The most essential plead with in behalf of this is heating the make public from the sensitive miscellanea, the sod, the occurrence can also be convenient atmospheric fronts and more.
Picked up call from "Name unknown". Caller was silent. Could clearly hear in the background that the caller was located inside a large call-center. I said, "Hello". Caller was silent. I said, "You probably have the wrong number." Caller said, "Yeah, I probably do... John. Have a nice day", and immediately hung-up.
They call me just before 9pm and leave no messages. I'm tired of getting these late calls that raise my blood pressure and make my heart pound because I think it might be a family emergency so I run for the phone.
They call constantly, and hang up. I'm sure it's an auto-dialer and connects who ever picks up first out of dozens of calls made, that's why most of us get a 'dead' line.
The company is indeed PCC, or Political Call Center based out of Mesa, AZ. They're business line (I found the number after a little searching online) is (480) 649-2753. I Also got a human being to answer (480) 603-3795. I asked to be removed from their list.
For those of you who want to cause them a little grief, call either number listed above...many, many times. Tie up their business lines. Call and hang up over and over again (Why not? That's what they're doing to us, right?)
These a-holes call every day and never left a message, I finally answered and some jagoff aksed my political affiliation and I called him every foul name, including ethnicity, his female relatives, and references to oral sex.
Call came to Kansas from Political Center, 1201 S. Alma School Road, Suite 10500, Mesa, AZ 85210-1121. Call not answered and no message left.Caller ID said Political Call
The 'net advises that this is a telemarketing firm, gross sales $500,000, employees 5 to 9 staff members.
WILL NEVER PICK UP THESE KIND OF CALLS.... IT'S A WASTE OF YOUR TIME.. IF i GET OVER 2 OR 3, I REPORT
ALL UNWANTED CALLS TO THE STATE OF CA , DEPT OF JUSTICE AND THEY FOLLOW UP PROMPTLY/AND WITH GREAT RESULTS... CONTACT UR STATE DEPT OF JUSTICE FOR ACTION.
Message for 'not a loser': Please post your address.
stated is was a political action call center. I called back and there was a recording advised that political calls were not subject to the DNC list, but they would be happy to place me on their internal DNC list and to leave a message. Unfortunately the system would not let me leave a message
9/24/10: 6:00 PM I've received several of these calls this week. Usually, I do not answer them. Because my husband is napping, I quickly picked up the phone and disconnected it. Today I called the number back and received a recording telling me that they are PCC a Political Corporation or something like that. At the end, I was told I COULD have my phone number removed, which I did, and then told me to have a blessed day. I left my number and told them I despise having someone tell me to have a blessed day. I told them I hope they have an expletive miserable day and to quit calling my number.
I get the same 2 numbers calling all the time,,,I made it easy and blocked them/
I am @#$@#$ tired of this political crap. I make it a policy to vote against anyone that calls me.
Annoyed and now I Am PRO ABORTION!
Prolife Campaign for protection of unborn fetuses. Just tell them you are PRO ABORTION and abortion will prevent these s--t heads from propagating more annoying call center personnel. These s--t heads are also calling from 480-649-2753 Mesa Az. phone numbers.
Just remember to tell them you support abortion, it doesn't matter what your real opinion is it just upsets these annoying bastards!
Calls every few days. Hangs up if I answer. Never leaves a message if I don't.
I just called the Mesa, AZ Police Department at (480) 644-2211. You can call them, as well.
You can also call your local police department, and have your local police work with the Mesa, AZ police.
It's illegal, and if we report it, we can get this person put away.
"so F U jerks out there talkin crap, show some damn respect"
If the mental cripple who posted that would simply appear on my porch, it'd leave with its nose driven into the back of its skull.
VI called 480-603-3795 and got a live person. I was told Margaret Denello is the person in charge. She was not in. I express my opinion to Tomasita.
I received calls even after I requested them to stop calling. They have 2 numbers 480-603-3796 and 480-649-2753. If a lot of people were to call these numbers several times a day and leave annoying messages it just might get their attention.
Got this call for the first time. Hate it, hate it, hate it !! I just want to be left alone !!
3-6 calls a day How can you stop this
It's a scam, people. Like those people that call from FOP saying they are collecting money for fallen police officers, they have no affiliation with the group they claim to be a part of. They collect as many "donations" as they can, skim a VERY high percentage off the top, and give a small pittance to the actual cause. Anyone that is working for a genuine cause and looking for charitable donations is not going to be rude to you and make you angry at them.
you folks have no idea how far off from reality you are with respect to these call centers and i mean that in the nicest possible way
called them up "this is the PCC - we exist to connect non profit political action committees to voters. Please call back at regular business hours"
Call after call with no message left on machine, day after day..........
When will it end???????????
Number keeps calling..we let answering machine pick it up, but they never leave a message.
I answered....no one responded...only silence for a few seconds then a click. Call did not drop for minute or two.
These telemarketers list themselves as "political service centers" to avoid violating the "do not call' legislation. They change numbers often in case they are reported or their number is blocked. Usually they pass themselves off as a credit card company wanting to refinance your debt, a loan company looking for a client, a charity, etc. I have often wondered if they get paid on the number of contacts they make - even an answering machine would be a contact. They don't seem to care whether you answer or not. I received a call from 480-603-3796 and let my answering machine pick it up, but they didn't leave a message. I'll add this to my list of blocked numbers.
Beware of calls from this number. It's a guy by the name of Frank Pollacco that traffics drugs and launders money through several fictitious companies. Sure he has really nice business cards for all these companies but have you ever tried calling the numbers... for such a big time businessman (as he likes to refer to himself as), none of his companies have a receptionist and even the fax numbers go to his cell phone.... need I say more.
He will find out your vitals (SIN, dob, etc.) and use them in some way to continue his drug smuggling and money laundering.
I cannot caution enough.
Sorry, my mistake. I typed in the wrong number for the message left by Tony. Please disregard the message below.
Caller left a message saying his name is Tony. He says he's from the "_______ Service Center" (missing word sounds like "proja" or "projeck") He says he's calling, because in the last 18 months we entered our name in a drawing to win a new car, and our name was drawn to win one of their top four prizes. He gave a call-back number: 866-601-8851 ext. 1001, and said it was in our best interests to call him soon.
The strange thing is, according to another site that traces numbers, the number that called us is a cell phone in Chicago Heights. We have not entered any drawings to win a car or anything else.
If 408-603-3796 is a political call center, why did it show up on my caller ID as Communication G?
Asked to speak to the owner and said the owners would know what it was about. Attempted to get information from caller and she hung up. Owner never heard of these people.
I meant BELOW
I agree with the comment above mine. That person seems very smart. PCC called me several times and I donated to a very kind man, god bless the work of PCC, they are doing a great job, KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!!!!
All of your comments are hillarious. See, PCC is obviously a POLITICAL CALL CENTER. Simply, they call you, read you a script, ask you for money for several different campaigns. Just as any other call center, a do not call list is in place, whether you are put on this list or not is at the callers discretion. I used to work for the same exact company and location, hell, I've probable called some of you. I know for certain that people who were rude to me, I labeled as "out/not home" as oppose to "DNC(do not call)" . When I was working there I would easily make over 4 or even 5 hundred calls a day. Don't waste your time being rude, simply state that you would like to be on the DNC list, say "Thank you, have a great day" and hang up. If you order fast food and treat the staff like shit, they mess with your food, it's the same concept with call centers. Only they bug you at home and harass you like hell. Also, I was paid $11.00 base pay, + comission, most of my checks were well over $1,000.00 bi-weekly, so F U jerks out there talkin crap, show some damn respect. Alot of these people are felons and ex-convicts, ur a prick on the phone but I bet you people would be scared as hell in person. lol
I answered the phone.... no one was there.
I used to work for this company, actually, during high school. It's a room at the top floor of a tall bank building full of high school kids who need money and druggies who cannot get any other good job. Half of the people don't believe in the cause they are calling you about and the other half don't care either way. If the caller reaches a certain quota they get monthly bonusses, that is why they are so persistent.
no message, no brain. head never seen the light of day?
CALLED 6/01/2009 WANTING TO KNOW MY VIEWS ON ABORTION. I HUNG UP!

I just received a call from this number (480-603-3796).
There was no one on the line so I hung up.
I sometimes get this sort of thing from 866 calls.
George Vreeland Hill
When I answered they asked for the wrong name- I said no one here by that name- then they said the right name ( my husbands) and then mine and I said this is she- I was then told it was from a right to life political group who wanted to save lives. Then I was asked "Are you pro-life, pro-choice, or somewhere in between" I replied that I was somewhere in between, and then i hear this laughing and laughing and the women says "No you wasn't" and hung up.
I called back and waited for the answering machine- I was told on that they were not held to the same standards as other calls, so they don't fall under the "do not call" list. But, we could be taken off their internal list, but that could take 5 days- blah balh balh leave your number. And then 'have a blessed day" My message question their blessing, and that women is so un christ like and do not call me again. I am also turning th enumber into our state AG and the local station and the GOP becuase I can tell you that is where it is coming from!!
They called once (so far!) today while polls are open for a statewide ballot initiative.
They left no message. They use the political exception to the Do-Not-Call registry, but I commend them for saying so and not trying to hide.
I told my family members to call me on my cell phone after 6:00 PM, then each night I forward my land line to 202-456-1111. I figure these calls will stop pretty quickly once these suspicious-sounding calls arrive at the White House switchboard in Washington D.C.!
I did not answer # unrecognized. I added it to my Qwest # rejection list. Great service!!!!!!!!
(480)-603-3797 Political Call also uses 720.971.4690 Wireless Caller. Legally, what can be done to put these scammers out of business?
Says "political call." I don't answer
Geeeezus people, get a clue. Read the posts here. These call are not from any political organization! It is a money scam!
second call today thursday april 2 2009. Young woman identifies herself with pro-life group asks for me by name, am I pro-life or pro-choice? I told her that every time her group calls and pesters me I would make a donation to planned parenthood and any other abortion group that I could find. Maybe if congress would make abortion mandatory for people who can't feed and educate them they wouldn't grow up to work in annoying call centers. Third call this week, Remember if you can't feed them don't make them!
Quoting Annie, annie Pro life? Ask them . Why dont you take in and support all of the unwanted children in the world?
Four calls in six days from this number. That's a bit much! Politicians should have no more right than anyone else to call private numbers.
usually do not answer but this time did and nothing before the click to disconnect
Someone called from this number and they left a fake crying message on voice mail. Creepy!
Have called several times, never leave a message, this was their most recent call.
I don't care if they are prolife or not! Perhaps they are why God allows abortion!!!
Frank called with the Prolife campaign and asked me if I was pro life or pro choice. I verified his name and who he was representing (prolife campaign). I asked him if he was aware of the no call list. He said he is aware of the no call list, however, since this was a political call it does not apply. He said he would add my number to the political no call list and disconnected the call.
They are looking for and want to activate pro-life supporters.
This is PCC who connects Political Action Committees with voters. They allege they are not subject to the do not call registry. Report them anyway so they will stop.
Robert with archaic neo-con view of life, if Obaba is not an "American", he would not be able to be President in the first place! No answer on this phone, next time I'll just pick up and leave the phone off the hook, don't need some pro-life whackos wasting my time.
It was for abortion subject.
There's no election right now...why are they calling? Several times a week, never a message.
i used the *60....goodbye annoying fuckers
this number calls daily and sometimes twice a day.....caller ID says Political Call
This number called me frequently. I never answered and they left no message. Well tonight I answered. They asked for me by name. I asked 'who is calling?' They said something about 'pro life'. I said 'Hold on. I'll go get her'. Then I set the phone down and went about my business. I don't really know how long I had her on hold. She had hung up by the time I got out of the shower.
Pro life? Ask them . Why dont you take in and support all of the unwanted children in the world?
I get calls from this number. Called ID says: Political Call. Obviously, the "do not call" list doesn't work doesn't apply to politicians. When I answer the phone, the computer hangs up. Robert, get a life, dude.
They keep calling and just hang up. Even if I answer the phone.
These people have been calling daily at random times for weeks. I finally picked up. I suspect is IS political since it started off with a pro-life survey. I excused myself after the first question.
These people have called my number 5 times today. Never answered it but computer hung up on them all 5 times.
I keep getting these crazy pro-lifers calling me. They called on 2/9 and on 2/16. They are crazy. I am a pro-choice person and would never ever support these crazy people. where did they get my number. Caller i.d. says tempe, az
f*&#$ing obama b.s political call ! first time they just hung up as soon as i answered..trying to see if i like obamas b.s socialist plan ! ha! obamas is nt even an american!
Most recently we have received hang-up calls on 2/5, 2/6 and 2/10 from this Tempe, AZ number.
Ok, people here we go. If a call comes into your home and it is a number of the wall, like this one, answer the call then hit # * # * over and over and over then hang up. These calls say Political, but they are "fishing". They call your home to see what times of the day someone actually picks up. They can say they are from anywhere or any form of Charity or political firm, but they are compiling a list to sale to other telemarketing companies or charities. Ok, so when you get a call from one and they threaten or harras you, just hang up, then invest in a recorder you can record them with. When you actually get a recording, then report to FCC, FBI, local police or the manager of that company. Each time you talk to them or just hang up, they make money. If you make them hang up first, no money. So, when they call and actually speak, have fun like so many of these people have said on this report. But, if they don't say a word, hit the keys. Reason why, is if it is indeed a computer system, the computer will get confused and kick out that number thinking it is a fax, business, federal, telemarket number, etc... It's time politicians, charities (not good ones that don't call for money) and telemarketers fear us, not the other way around. Just a quick note. When you get all of that crap mail, save it and then send it to the address of this number, or stuff a ridiculus amount of the junk mail into one of those self payed envelopes and send it in, doesn't cost you a dime, but they have to open it and spend quality time opening a bunch of JUNK MAIL!!!
This stupid number keeps calling and calling my house. What the hell is it and how do I stop them? They call at all odd hours.
out of area
Second or third time they have called in the past month. I have * 69 twice, to get the number. No anwser after I say "Hello". They just hang up. Seem to always catch me at a bad time, when I struggled to anwser the phone. Very frustrating, we are on the DNC list as well.
I called the number back last night because we have received at least 3 calls the past couple weeks and it sounded like a telemarketing company in the background. I could barely understand the person that answered.
I've received several such calls. I never answer and they never leave a message. I'd not have known who they are since only "TEMPE AZ" appears on the caller ID, but according to WhitePages.com:
Political Call Center
1201 S Alma School Rd
Mesa, AZ 85210
Aren't the elections over ?
Keeps calling.. They hang up when I answer, if I dont answer they dont leave a message
They call and call, but as soon as we let it go to VM, they hang up. We are on the "Do not call list," but perhaps since they are a "non-profit," they are somehow getting around it.
lookslike someone trying to set up repubs as pain in butt nuisance callers
Calls every day, except Christmas. Caller ID shows "Tempe AZ".
Just call the number and they will put you on their own do not call list.
phone ran a few times...I did not answer. They did not leave a message on recorder.
Wo are these people?
Id themselves as Right to Life.
TJ can I have your wife's number?
1st call from this # on 11/17/08. The elections are over. Are they already gearing up for 2010???
I called them back and got a recording that said they are a Polical Call Center. I left a message with my name and number asking to be put on their do not call list. I will see what happens!!
I use 2 work for political call center in Mesa AZ and they are the people calling all they do is telephone act like they no alot of the repuplican party . but i am a democrat and i dont no squat about that. they pay good though. 15.00 hr. for a guy in hs. thats good. they say the company is legit but i dont think so i think ther scaming ppl. i felt bad for sum old ladys that donate but yea if you guys want ther managers number for political call center here it is 4806033797 bug the shit outta of them . and if you dont belive me Hi my name is----- im calling in behalf of the repuplican majority campaign. if the presidental elections were help today would you be voting for repuplican.... ect. you no the lame skit. stop them from taking old ppls money
POLITICAL CALL. Lots of calls, no messages. I'm on DNC list as well... AND the calls continue even after the elections?!?
This is MBNA. They have a do not call list. You must ask to be put on the list, and they wil stop the calls.
MBNA call, very annoying and bad time (it is always a bad time) for an unwanted call.
For those that may not be aware, political calls are exempt from DNC list. Politicans didn't want to ban their own telemarketing.
Answer and just hang up
I also get calls from this number. Yes it is political. Just so you know, political calls are not subject to he Do Not Call restrictions. They are allowed to call.
www.anywho.com reverse search shows the same as 411.com:
Political Call Center
1201 S Alma School Rd
Mesa, AZ 85210
the guy who called me at least identified himself as from the Republican political something-or-other...
caller id just said out of area, they hang up after the third ring, they do not leave a message...I have had many, many calls from this number
No message on voice mail. Caller ID says Out of Area.
I donated $25.00, then I thought better. So I stopped payment on the check. Just in case they weren't "legit".
I work for a telemarketing company and it doesn't matter whether you're on the DNC list or not. Political calling, like surveys and existing business relationship sales is still permitted. If you want them to stop calling, ask them to please remove your name and number from THEIR list (the telemarketing company's list). It won't prevent other telemarketing companies from calling you for similar reasons, but it'll prevent that telemarketing company from calling you for any reason ever again. If they continue to call, THEN you have a valid FCC complaint!
caller asked for an Edith Gonzalez??? caller id displays Political Call
Can't believe they won't stop calling us in the middle of the night.
Got a 480-603-3796 call at around 9pm. Caller ID had "Unknown Name." Figured it was garbage. I picked up without saying hello, waited, and got a soft click after a while.
has been calling constantly - leaves no message- finally picked up one day- it was a woman wanting to know my views on abortion - are you pro life or pro choice ETC ETC ETC. talked about the gruesome partial birth abortion a few seconds THEN wanted MONEY. Was presistent when I said no. Had to hang up.
Generally, this "POLITICAL CALL" is a pure pain in the rear. I get at least 2 calls a day, sometimes 3 or more. I have reported them to the DNC center, but doubt it will do any good. Still, lets ALL report them - volume complaints do work.
In the meantime, I wish I could get my hands on the home number of the jerk who runs "POLITICAL CALL" as I'd call him 10 times a day and try to sell him something (or ask his opinion about whatever) and I'd do it at dinner time.
I called the number and received a recording that said they have an internal do not call list and you can leave you rname and number and they will place you on that list. Not sure if it will work or not- we'll find out.
more wasted time, thiers, not mine.
Just don't answer calls from now until the election.
Just copied this from the DO NOT CALL website under the link 'File A Complaint':
Reminder: Even if your number is registered, companies with which you do business may continue to call you. So may charities, political organizations, and telephone surveyors.
Oh yay - just about every schmo on earth can call and bug us!
Copied this from the DO NOT CALL website under the link 'File A Complaint':
"Reminder: Even if your number is registered, companies with which you do business may continue to call you. So may charities, political organizations, and telephone surveyors."
Republican Call - asked for donation
its annoying, they call and hang up everyday!
If it's political and from Az., my guess it would be from John McCain's campaign. Just a guess.
the 480 603-3796 was a call for fund raising by pro-life advocates to fight back the pro-abortion lobbyists who want to make late term abortion legal.
I have a new plan, I now hit the speaker button on my phone. I just don't say anything. I let them talk to the dead air for a while.
Of course, if we all started answering the phone and wasting as much of THIER time as possible without purchasing anything or donating anything they might go out of business.
I think I'll start timing them and see how long I can make them talk before they get tired of it and hang up on me. Perhaps I'll even call back and ask for them by name.
No one there when I answered the phone.
It's was a caller from a republican group looking for money to stop a bill that would allow third term abortions.
I don't have long distance on the phone they call on so I called them back and left a message to take me off their list. I've been getting nightly calls for over a month now. It's down right annoying because when I do answer no one talks.
Combined political call and "supposed pro-life" call. Except the politician he said he represented is NOT in favor of pro-life! BIG RED FLAG!! The Caller knew my name! Caller stated he was with the pro life group, and asked for a $100 donantion. I SAID NO. He made a comment about a political candidate he represents, asking if I would send a donation. I said No. The caller suggested "Perhaps another time" and hung up the phone. This happened August 15, 2008 - in the late evening. I am a pro-lifer by the way. This caller is a scammer!!
I never received your call personally. It may have been on the Caller ID. I received a letter from you today that I promised to send $20.00, but that did not occurr.
Did not answer
Asked for me by name, then just hung up.
This number called me at 4:26 pm. Caller ID said "Political Call." silence, then a woman said is _____? I said who is calling? She said "Republican Majority."
I laughed extremely loud into the phone, and said "you people are going down in flames this November. We're going to kick your ____."
Most fun I've had all day. HOPE they call again.
Most of the time nothing. Then something about wanting to stop McCain. I think this is a scam to get your credit card number. Somehow they figure out your political leanings and then try to use that to get money. Either they are ripping off credit card numbers, or an operation which collects for whoever pays them. I gave money to Hillary Clinton, and then these calls started.
says political call.......didn't pick-up
This number had Political Call listed with the phone number. It is now blocked from calling here again.
I receive this call at least once a day and this has been going on for some time. I haven't ever picked it up.
They have caller everyone day for the last week or so, at varying times.....never leaving a message.
Another money-grubbing call from the f'in Republican National Committee. I asked the (actually very nice) guy who called if he knew how much the bastards in our congress made, and he didn't. The sorry SOBs make $179,000 ayear plus every f'in thing they want is free. I make 10% of what they make and I'm a single (divorced) mother of three who gets no child support. I asked him why in the HELL he thought I should contribute to those rich bastards. He didn't have an answer (They get paid by commission) but asked me if I could spare $20.00 to help get the Republican message out. What's the message? That they're a bunch of weasels??? The Dems are no better and I'm well and truly sick of politicians. Wait until Hillary the Hag, a multi-millionaire, asks you to help pay off HER compaign debt. What a bitch! I HATE politicians. And, grow up people, and read the instructions. The politicians execmpted themselves from the Do Not Call list. They don't ant to miss out on a penny of your money. Vote them all OUT. NEVER, EVER, vote for an incumbent. (By the way, $20.00 will buy five gallons of milk for my kids, or five gallons of gas for my old, broken down car. It took some nerve for the telemarket guy to want to take that away)
This # keeps calling me and since they do not leave a message I will not accept. It is very annoying to say the least. If it is a political call I will answer next time and ask them to stop calling.
I would like to know how to prevent these calls. We are on both the state and national Do Not Call lists.
Just got a call from this number asking for Cindy somebody, there is no Cindy that lives here!! Then they asked for Mr. somebody and of course that person does not live here either, duh!!! They apologized and then hung up. From the other posts this is a Republican thing, so here is a news flash, even though you asked for someone else you are still calling the wrong number because we are registered DEMOCRATES!!!!!!!
Oh and for those that stated they are the DNC list. . .here is a NEWSFLASH. . .Political Calls are not covered on the Do Not Call Registry along with non-profit organizations, companies that you do or have done business with and marketing/research surveys!!! If you don't believe me look it up on the DNC Registry website, it states what is covered and what is not!!!
The guy who called me said he was with the committee for a republican majority. These guys will do anything to stay in power.
Have received numerous calls from these bastards, all wanting money to "Stop Obama". They work both sides of the street and also have an opposing faction that wants your money to "Stop McCain". They want money for senate and h of reps to be re-elected. I asked the kid who was on the phone (try not hiring the retarded for once!) if he knew how much these a'holes made a year and all the benefits they siphon off the taxpayer and of course he didn't know. I told him....and also told him I am a single mother with two kids and a dead beat ex spouse, so I make about ten percent of what the leeches in Washington rake in a year, so why the HELL are they asking me for money???? T.J., to answer your question, yes, it's a scam, but so is everything in Washington. Never EVER vote in an incumbent. JERKS!!!! And of course they've exempted themselves from any regulation so they can keep trying for your last dollar. Some day, there will be another revolution and they've brought it on themselves.
calls approximately twice a day, regularly, caller ID displays political call, and I don't anwser -- I can only think how glad I will be when the elections are over, and generally I enjoy election season! Calls like this do not enhance our participation in politics, and do nothing for our attitude towards politician.
Dial *60 and block the number if you have the service. You'll never get another call.
Political Call Center...Margaret Demeleo, Pres.
The business owner is listed as Margaret Demeloo at previously indicated address. I can't find this person in the U.S. They are listed as a political call center.
WTF? 11 times in as many days. always 8pm est. never anyone on the other end.
Called then they hung up when I answered.. 6-23-08
Shows "Out of Area" and keeps hanging up on me when I answer!
i am so sick of hearing the ringing only to have the person hang up without saying a word so i called & listened to the message (politcal group not subject to DNC rules which i know is true) so i left a message - "you're not doing any good for the candidates using your service by hanging up when someone answers & i am going to leave my name & number so you can do as you say & take my number off the list (they say it takes up to 36 hours) & from now on, when you call my house, i will answer with a whistle blown into the phone & if i'm not at home when you call, i will call back, listen to your message again & then blow my whistle into the phone". these people have been calling for months & when i do answer because i'm tired of the incessant ringing, no one EVER says anything. five or so years ago, i never answered "unknown caller" calls but one time i did and it was actually my doctor's office calling to let me know some test results. i then started answering those calls and there were a few other times calls i needed to take came from "unknown callers". i don't know why they do this but it makes me feel i need to pick up all calls now in case one is actually important. therefore, me and my whistle take action and it's amazing at how certain numbers stop calling after getting the whistle treatment a few times.
I searched on the web a little and found the manager's direct line. It is 480-603-3797. I called and had our number removed from the call list.
I think this number is connected to Bell canada. I used to be a Bell member and as soon as I switched companies, I started getting the calls, with no one at the other end...
I have called Videotron and asked them to block the number, but they cannot because it is an 800#. I have called the police, but they cannot do anything except charge me a fee to provide some number tracking system.
And now, it's the 866-428-1656 number that calls. When I call it back, it's the recording saying leave your name, and we'll stop calling you.
Bullshit! And there is nothing you can do but change your number. It's a real invasion of my private life. I have no way of prooving that Bell is at the root of it, but I am pretty sure. Any thoughts?
4 calls, so far, in 2 days.
THE LINE RANG BY THE TIME I ANSWERED IT HUNG UP.
A dozen calls in a month. Arizona.. D oh.
5/26 1:15 pm answered but only heard strange electronic noises and finally a dial tone
5/23 5:56 pm did not answer
5/22 2:50 pm did not answer
5/14 8:49 am did not answer
An earlier call answered was someone who said they were from a political party.
I believe they are polling for McCain or fundraising for him.
Call the number back and leave a message to get off their calling list. Because they are political calls, they are not subject to the rules of the nationwide "do not call" list. They do however have their own list, and can take you off if you leave a message with your phone number.
2 or 3 calls at various hours of the day for weeks, then none for about a month only to resume same pattern. A few times when I answered no one responded but I could hear talking in the background.
Keep receiving calls from this number, they never leave a message and I won't answer.
An annoying nuisance caller that lets the phone ring and ring. They like to call just when you are sitting down to dinner. From now on I am taking my phone off the hook for the evening.
said they were from the republican party. They call everday and this is the first time i have answered.
Some Arizona Call kepts calling after 8pm, never leaves a message and I refuse to pick up. So I guess we're at an impasse.
They hung up on me after I told them I wasn't going to vote for John McCain....I looked up where they call from and they call from ARIZONA HA HA HA HA HA!
They BETTER not call me again.
Political Call Center
1201 S Alma School Rd, Mesa, AZ 85210
This caller has rang my phone several times in the past few months. When i answer ther is never anyone there. I am on the no call list but it doesn't seem to help.
Got a call from this number just now. Answered but no one there. I think they use automatic dailers and when they call you and they don't have anyone available to talk to you, that is when you get the silence. It is nice the politicians gave us the "no call list" but isn't it funny how they are the ones calling us all the time now? How about a "political do not call list."
they called several times a day recently and i never answered, i think this is the MBNA who is trying to sell medical insurance...
I finally was home when this company called. I always attempt a friendly conversation with the caller, at least the first time they call. Why? Detective work. I want to know who is behind the call and for what is the purpose. Sometimes, they hang up on me.
After the woman caller began to ask me questions about voting, I (without answering) began to ask her questions. For example, what organization was sponsoring the call? This one, the woman said, "gee, no one asked me that before," and proceeded to lookup the name of the organization. I found out that the nature of the call was to collect money, and that the call campaign was sponsored by the Republican Majority Campaign. She even gave me the website: www.republicanmajoritycampaign.com.
Now, I am not going to debate one cause vs. another, but I do know if I wanted to donate to any group, I would go to that group directly, not through a paid call center firm. Chances are, they extract 40% of all donations for their fees. Why should anyone subsidize a call center operation?
When I explained to this woman that I never donate to anyone over the phone, (and that any extra cash I have has been taken from me due to the $.596 per gallon gasoline tax imposed on me), I need her to remove me from her organization's call list.
She proceeded to lookup how to accomplish this. I heard her say "I found it" and the line went blank.
I have been getting these calls about once per day for a few weeks now. I have not been home to answer the call. After performing research about this company, I found their website: www.jobsatpcc.com
Take a look on the left border menu. You will see a link for a "Suggestion Box." Perhaps it will be worth your time to leave a suggestion for these douchebags to "Go %&*# themselves." Make sure you that you do not use a real name or email address. And if you are concerned about the morality of this approach, ask yourself, who is the victim here?
Once more they leave my phone answerer with a dial tone! Getting tired of these calls! Time to do something....like start calling back at all hours of the day and just hang up, like these bastards do!!!
I keep posting this but some people just don't get it. Just like charities, politicians hire call centers to do all of the fundraising calling for them. And many of them use the same sevice. So from this number you might get a call to raise money for Hillary one time then a little later the same number calls asking for money for McCain. I glanced through many of the posts here. Some are complaining because they are on the NATIONAL DO NOT CALL LIST or a do not call list with their state. Once again for those who don't get it. Both your state and the national do not call list are there to stop unsolicited calls BUT the government (state and national) give full excemption to CHARITIES and POLITICIANS. People sign up for these services by mail, online, or by phone but seem to never read the fine print. Complaining to the National Do Not Call list isn't going to do you any good. You want to stop calls? Look up the number for that politician or charity. Call it and tell them you will never give them money again because the call service they use to solicit money from you called too many times and pissed you off. If both excempt groups get the message that pissing off those who you want support from (usually monetary) you will lose more and more support each year. Enough people do this and call centers will go under.
If the address listed previously is right,
info on who owns this property: (sorry about the non-clicky nature of these links, just cut and paste)
It is in the Bank of America Financial Plaza:
What you do with this is your call, but I'd bet their landlords wouldn't appreciate their tenants causing folks this much grief.
Call with no one talking. Just heard what sounded like a call center in the background. Second one today (4/10/08)
Ignore my previous note, which was about a different number. Same thing applies to this one since non-profits and political calls are not subject to DNC List. I called back and was able to leave a message. Their message header says you can ask to be removed from their call list. I made sure to leave my name and number and said that the main problem was that there was no-one there when you answer. Let's see....
I have been getting calls from this and there is no-one there. However, the DNC List does not preclude marketing calls from a business you already do business with. So, it's legal, unfortunately, if you already do business with Verizon. I called them back and after 10 minutes on hold got someone named Charlotte. I blasted the person, who said there was no-one on the call because of a glitch that did not recognize that someone had answered and blamed "the IT Department". They were offering 2 free months for something, which I immediately declined and threatened to pull my Verizon accounts. They agreed to take me off the call list.
Don't know about anyone else,but I'm on a do not call list and I keep getting these no available callback calls! I get so angry when I hurry to get the phone only to be greeted by dead silence! Just once have the balls or whatever to stay on the line so I can hang up on you! YOU MOTHERFUCKER!!!
I answered as it was the first time they called. It was supposedly a rep calling from the ProLife foundation and they started telling me what they do. I hung up. Good word of advice. If you are on the no-call list, as I am, and get this type of call I would be leary of giving any info to them. They obviously like breaking rules and are not to be trusted.
dialed # listed.said "please check # or redial,# is not a working listing!" what the hell is this?
answering machine picked up. they left no message. just silence and a few "clicking" noises where heard followed by the sound of the phone being put back on the receiver. strange
call several times a week, no one ever speaks. Just silence.
they call and hang up after i answer the call. I am on the do not call list as well. i am filing a complaint
I called this number back to see who would answer. After 8 rings, a message about the Political Call Center came up. "You have reached the Political Call Center. If you are calling during regular business hours, all of our lines must be busy. Please leave a message at the tone."
Calls every single day several times a day and up to 9 p.m at night. Several people in the area have gotten calls from the same number.
White Pages shows number as "Political Call Center"
The number is answered by a voice-prompt system. It is PCC, Political Call Center, "...to connect PACs with voters." The message says they do not fall under the Do Not Call law but accept requests to be placed on an in-house DNC list.
I called this number back and got a recording saying that it is a political call center.
I called the MBNA accounts line at 1.800.404.1319 and asked if they had an email address or # to voice complaints about the telemarketers. They actually took my info to be removed from the call list. I'll just wait and see how it goes. They said 2 days for calls, 4-6 weeks for mail.
they called asking for leroy cocksford said wrong number and hung up
when you call back, a message says "we are 24-7, a service bureau serving the private sector. If you would like your number removed, please leave a detailed message...."
i called this number back b/c i get 4 to 5 calls a day from them and i don't ever answer. anyway, i got their machine and listened to the message. they say they are a political call center and do not fall under the restrictions of the DNC list. they also stated that if i would like to be put on their internal dnc list that i can leave my name and phone number and it takes about a week for that to get implemented. i did that and so we will see...
I called them back. They have a msg for being placed on their internal do not call list as they call for non-profits. Very polite.
A very friendly lady called me about donating $100.00 for the Republican party.
I refused to donate and she said "Good Night" very kindly hung up.
Don't bother telling these people to take you off their list because they don't. They have called our house on and off for over a year. Goes on incessantly for about a month then they disappear for a few months. We don't pick up the phone. Sometimes they use their automated caller to find out when you will be home (thus the nothing on the other end when you pick up) They will then keep calling you back at that time. I like the suggestion I've heard elsewhere of buying a whistle and blowing it into the receiver when you pick up every time a certain number calls.
They are calling my work number!!! If I get another call I'm at my work I'm going to call the police and have something done!!!!
These people call about 2 times a day! Very annoying! I am going to report them, too.
Is there any way to report these calls to someone who can track and sue this people?
they have called me 2 times within one hour so far today!!! and no one answers when I pick it up!!!
Received call at 5:30PM EST. Caller ID was "Out of Area". Did not answer, no message was left.
these people are ignorant smart asses just like the rest of the political parties out there. They have no respect for people.
House and cell phone numbers are on "do not call" list. I get numerous calls from this #. I do not answer unrecognized area codes.
I'm about to get nasty with these fuckers.
assholes keep calling.
When asked if I wanted a Rep OR Dem President I answered neither, and was answered with a smart ass response that I didn't want a president.
I've been getting calls from these jerkoffs for a while and finally decided to look em up on here. I'm so sick of the damn political whores calling and bugging me at home. losers.
Call frequently. I answered today & they hung up.
Call came in as "unknown name"
called several times, we do not answer
3 Rings. They hang up before answering machine picks up. 480 is in Arizona. Probably part of John McCain's new "Straight Annoyance Express".
They have called several nights asking for my wife. I started answering the phone and speaking to them in French. The guy was rude and said "Are going to go get her or are just just going to sit there?" I hung up on them. I'm tired of the calls. We are also on the Do Not Call Registry.
If you call the number back they have an answering machine where you can leave your name and number and tell them to take you off their list. I just did that so we'll see if it works.
This one's interesting. They call my cell phone constantly, 3-4 times per day. Recently, I changed my cell phone number to a new number (Bell Mobility). Within 24 hrs of obtaining the new cell phone number, the calls from (866) 701-8375 resumed 3-4 times per day. Dead air everytime I answer. These calls are from MBNA Mastercard, but obviously Bell Mobility provided them with my new cell phone number, as I share this number with NOBODY. Frustrating, as I use my cell phone for emergency outgoing call purposes only, but these idiots are trying to use up all my airtime minutes. Likely the reason Bell Mobility provides cell phone number info to telemarketers.
received 4 calls in 3 days from this number,
They're calling me cell phone relentlessly!!
It's brutal - Does anyone know how to make it stop?
Rude! Hung up the minute I told them my husband was in Hong Kong, I said I was his wife, may I, and then I heard a click. Very professional for an adult women!! It is even more suspicious when they hang up on you!
left no message
i got a call from 416 922 8653 15/1/2008 at 843:pm and they ask about my first and last name an indian guy sound alike,
he said that he is from rogers, & want to talk to me and take my sugget about the services that i have and if wanted to extended the warranty of services and asked me that if i dont extend my warranty of the internet i wont get discount
internet &home phone. and yes i have those two services, and i just switched to rogers home phone from bell becouse i got a good deal,so this indian shit asked me about those two services about the warranty with and a survey.later on i desside to call back that number becouse on my payment bell i recive from rogers that there was a dicount of two services. so i call back no one answer my call and sended me throw there masg system and it says this is della canada performance hang up.. iam from bridgewood ca
this helps alot...i was wonder who called ...and i didnt wanna call it back cause it showed up on the id as political call... so i looked it up to see what they where about...thanks youve been tons of help
This number is used by international call centers under contracts with the MBNA.
Last subcontractor who called me was:
24-7 Customer Private ltd.
they gave me this adress in India. Maybe fake.
They get their data from MBNA who buys it from a canadian data mining company. I called MBNA 1-888-876-6262 and asked for the data mining company coordinates. The flirty MBNA standardist said they will mail it to me. We'll see. I'll post the coordinates here when I receive them.
MBNA deals with canadian marketing companies who subcontract to indian call centers. They mine the data and get the marketing contracts in Canada and get the job done abroad. I believe they are the most elusive link in the telemarketing chain.
That said, the call centers' practices are really bad. I've been called for MBNA mastercard numerous time over the last year. They call 2-3 times a day for three weeks, never leaving a message and hanging up on me 9 out of 10 times. Then they stop for 2-3 months and it start all over again...
By the way, I live in Montreal, QC.
6 months ago I've asked both the Indian call center and MBNA to remove me from their lists. It was innefective. Last hope is the datamining/telemarketing agency/crooks incorporated company...
If there is enough people pissed enough, we could try a collective legal action. email firstname.lastname@example.org with Francis in the TO: line if interested.
When I phone the number back I have to dial long distance, which sucks, but the girl on the other end talks so fast that I can only get part of the namm. She says "Youve reached 24/7 bla bla bla bla, Private sector something and if I want to stop receiving their calls I can re enter my number which I will not do.
Called me 3 times in one evening. I did get offered a Mastercard a few days ago, which I denied. I used to not mind getting a few calls once in a while, but this is ridiculous.
Caller stated her name and that she was from the Republican Party. She asked for my husband (since he's the registered Republican and not me), I told her he was not in today, she said "Well, that's okay Mrs. _____, I have a quick question for you. "In the upcoming Presidential Election, would you like to see a Republican or Democrat in the office of President?" She thanked me and hung up.
call me 3 times in 10 minutes!
This number was on caller ID many times while I was out of town. They called again, and no display showed on caller ID until after their call was completed (blank screen on caller ID). They called me by name and asked how I was doing today? I asked who was calling, and she said "from the Making A Difference Christian Church".....I told her we did not accept any telemarketing or solicitation calls, and to remove me from the calling list. She said okay. Two days later, they are calling and it displays while I'm on my phone, so I didn't answer. These are scam calls, and I think they use anything or any "cause" they can to try to get money. HARRASSERS!!! I'm on DNC list, which means nothing to lots of creeps/criminals that call.
call everyday and many time a day, even late at night and no message left. I never pick up call when I see "out of area" or unknown name. I am on a do not call list and they still call. Shouldn't do not call list center do something about this?
I answered and asked who she was calling on behalf of Pro-Life. I told her that I wanted my name taken off of their list and I didn't want to be called by anyone ever again.
This is a political call. They say in their announcement they are exempt from the do not call.
Unknown caller. Not there when I answer
I too have had more than 30 calls from this number. Finally called back as I have had enough....no answer. Found that a human answers if you call their other number 480-603-3797 and they assued me I would be taken off the list.....we will see if that works. I would vote against whoever they are trying to promote, if they would tell who that was!
"Unknown Name" has called again from this number. No message left, again.
Keeps on calling me either on my phone line or my fax o.O Once they called me for a credit card but the guy could barely speak in English so got into my nerves and told him im very busy so I'll try to contac him when I'll have some time and he said in this department we can make calls but we cannot receive o.O so I said well then im NOT interested please do NOT call again. but they keep on.
Several calls a day. Finally got them to say they were with Pro-Life. I said "DO NOT CALL HERE AGAIN!" I'm sure it won't do any good though.
I waited and finally a woman began talking and asking what my name was. I asked her to take our number off their list and she just kept asking for my name. I told her to remove our number and hung up. We have been getting at least two a day from this number. SO this morning we were called by 480 603 3796 with ID Offer P.
i get calls from this number a lot. i never answer the call and they never leave a message. when i complained to the phone company they told me i could subscribe to a number blocking service, which i did, but unfortunately found out after the fact that this blocking service does not include toll free area codes. so, what good is that? if i change my number they'll eventually start calling again because they random dial. it doesn't matter if your number is unlisted. i'm so sick of this crap and wonder why there is nothing we as consumers can do to stop the harrassment.
We get at least 4 calls from this number a day, no one is ever there, they let it ring 4 times, and if we don't answer, they just hang up
This number has been showing up on my phone a lot lately. I was finally decided to answer to find out who was calling. He asked for my by name. I asked what the call was regarding. He asked, "Is this Elizabeth?" I asked, "What is this call regarding?" He asked, "IS THIS ELIZABETH?" I asked, "WHAT IS THIS CALL REGARDING?" He hung up! Can't wait for them to call again!
calling 4 or 5 times a day everyday for about a week now, I have simply not answered any of the calls, the calls continue anyway.
This call came in as a Political Call
I never answer the phone when I see "out of area" or "unknown name", but they are very frequent
these morons call 2 or 3 times a day and they are either east indian or pakastani.they do not even pronounce my name right half the time they are just pests.
Keep calling and never leaves msgs. I just called to have my number removed from their list.
All you have to do is call back this number and they will ask you to leave your telephone number + area code, and they will remove your number from their lists.
I don't understand why policital organizations cannot be added to the Do Not Call List.. Got rid of the telemarket calls since being on the list but started getting 4-5 political calls per day.. Had to invest in a "Call Manager" caller ID Box. Best $100.00 I ever spent. They can call all they want, it blocks out of area, unavailable, unkown, 800 numbers, or any number you program into it. The phone Co. should offer this service, they would make a fortune!
I answered this call and they just hung up when I answered
EXACT same situation as "baconbits" described!!!
Skyped this number back, it is for "24/7", "twentyfour seven" or some other spelling variant. Announcer says "Thank you for calling 24/7 - we are a service bureau serving the private sector. If you would like your number removed, please leave a detailed message with your name and number, including area code, and your number will be removed within 48 hours".
So fed up with them calling all the time ugh how do u get rid of them?
twice a week, I call b ack to remove me from the list
Another bunch of ass-hat telejunkers who ignore out-of-service messages. What we really need is for the FTC and CRTC to provide a toll-free number to auto-redirect telejunkers to, in much the same way as auto-fwd'ing email spam to the FTC at email@example.com for investigation.
They don't leave a message
They called me tonight for MBNA Mastercard... confirming my name etc. then asked for information I was not willing to give over the phone, mothers maiden name, my date of birth etc for the application. 1. never give that out over the phone, 2. if they cannot mail the application don't give info over the phone. 3. most credible banks will send mail and not use telemarketers.
Could be a phishing group or legitimate telemarketers but in this day and age, beware of identity theft and credit card theft using your identification and personal info people can open credit in your name without your knowledge. Want a credit card, call your bank don't go through a telemarketer.
I wish they would STOP calling me!!
Said they were calling from Pro Life Campaign.. I said "you have the wrong person"
The "unknown" call comes at least 2 or 3 times a day. We do not answer the call. Our voice mail does not register any message. This has been happening for years. Don't they have enough sense to stop calling when they cannot get anywhere with the call? I wish there would be a way to get back to them!!!
they said it does not do any good to be in the do not call list because they are not calling us to sell us anything, I ask then to take me off their list but they will probably keep calling, before I answered the phone they had called a couple of times, I did not answer before and never left a mess.
Got a call from this number and the guy said, 'it scares me the hell more than it scares you' and then hung up the phone.
no message left
They called me frequently--Today at 7:15 p.m., 11/7 at 10:58 a.m., 11/6 at 12:32 p.m., 11/05 at 10:45 a.m., and 10/31 at 7:07 p.m. This has been going on for longer than this, but that's all I had still on my caller ID. I never answer those calls.
480-603-3796.....Calls from PCC a Political Call Center. Getting calls 3-4times a day and nothing but hangups! Getting tired of this...anyone know how to email the company!
My VoIP shunted this number to an out-of-service number. Time will tell if this telejunker ignores out-of-service messages.
MBNA Mastercard telemarketer
Call comes in as "Out of area". I'm on the Do Not Call Registry but they call anyway. I do not answer.
Like the rest of you.I'm tired of these people calling too.
when I answered on the 2nd ring, they hung up
They call all the time......
First time 866-701-8375, called me and believe not the last, Along with another telemarketer 1-866-233-2777 and
905-310-2255 which have reported on the web sites. The funny thing is my phone number is unlisted but for the past two months I have forward my private phone number to a non working number,I check the last ring who called me.I never give my phone number even to my employer, so these guys are just calling random numbers from coast to coast Canada and USA.I believe even if we change and pay some $50.00 to change our phone numbers it it only a matter of time they and who ever telemarketer will call again. I believe, they will continue to call because there is no Laws in place to protect householders. Good luck to all, or move to Mexico.
This phone # (480)603-3796 calls late evening and I can't figure out whoit is that keeps calling to stop them!
They've called about a dozen time in the past two weeks and never say boo.
2 calls; 8:00 pm & 7:30 pm this week. No message left. I don't have caller ID. Found the area code was in Arizona. :P :P :P
I'm so tired of these a**holes.Politics suck.You can't trust them slimeballs that live on this planet we call Earth.
Someone should put and end to these jerkoffs.
They have called a few times and no one's talking.
Did not answer. Did not leave a message. Calls daily.
Countless calls from this telephone number. Never leaves any messages. Thank you for the information from comments.
I have gotten numerous calls - I am now using my "CALL BLOCK" feature on my phone - *60 then #01# and it auto adds last caller -
I have enjoyed ALOT of peace time since and add each of these types of calls when the come in - still cant do anything about "unknown name"
It's quite annoying, I've gotten called by this number for the past 2 weeks, once every two days. Anyone know how to stop this?
Called today. I called MBNA Canada and they say the company is legit and do work on their behalf. But they are very pushy.
I received a call from somebody offering me a gold Master Card at 0% of interest for 6 months. Unfortunately, I gave him some personnal information. I hope not go in trouble...
Rcv'd a call from this # today. My adult son answered the phone, they asked for my husband first calling him by Mr. _ _ _ . When my son told them he wasn't available they asked for Mrs. _ _ _. My son asked who was calling and they said they were from the U.S. Immigration Office. Assuming it was a scam, mom son hung up.
I'm so tired of these buttlips calling all the time.
Dumb Jerks Call All The Time !!!
Call them back and ask to be taken off their list.
They say it will take as much as 5 days to accomplish.
I got three calls from this same number for Master Card. I let the first agent go into her spiel, then I was polite, and just said Thanks, but I was not interested. The second one called wanting to verify address to send Master Card. I cut in when she started to rhyme off the address and I told her I never applied for Master Card and was not interested. I hung up. I get a call today (oh, and it sounds like the same lady each time, btw), and I told her quite bluntly this time, that this was the third time I got this call and that again, I am not interested, and I hung up. So here I am now putting this complaint in. I signed up for the Do Not Call list. I can't wait for that to kick in.
30 calls from this number. Many twice a day. I have written them requesting that they do not call. I have reported them repeatedly to the 'do not call' list -- all to no avail. Something must be done about them.
These people are relentless. Lots of messages every week. They never give details, just that it's an attempt to collect a debt. Maybe if they were a bit more specific as to where the debt is from, I would call them back!
At least one call per day for the past several weeks. How did we get on to such a lively call list--we do not give out our private number and we are registered on the DNC list. I'm addressing a hand written letter to the address that was noted on a few posts requesting that our number be removed from their call list. I am also CC the Better Business Bureau and my senator. Let him deal with the annoyance his profession has created.
I have caller ID and the number and Arizona are display. They don't leave a message just keep calling.
call me appel moi 819-321-7112 cellular phone
appeler moi firstname.lastname@example.org
We got calls like this from a similar number - no one there - no messages left. Finally my boyfriend picked it up and hit the number time again and again - supposedly it's supposed to scramble their system - never got a call from that number again - but now this one has started - maybe the same method would work...
I get calls almost every day from this number. There is never anyone on the line and they don't leave a message.
Just recieved a call caller id said "political call" 480-603-3796. I answered they asked for me and ask for my views on illegals and then asked me for a donation of $100 I told him know and he hung up.
I received calls from this number on 2007-09-10, 2007-09-19, 2007-09-24. Does not leave message. When call is ansered the call is ended.
Called on behalf of MBNA Canada. Tried to push a no annual fee MasterCard.
let it go to the answering machine and no message was left
Do not answer. Call back and leave a message requesting your number off their database and tell them you have reported this harrassment, then REPORT to Better Business Bureau
They have been calling me sense I got the Internet my guess is I filled out some kind of form and they are using mbna as a front to get our personal info you know identity thieves
They call me almost everyday and never leave a message.
Received call from this number, I didn't answer, and they didn't leave a message. I called the number back and heard an automated "Thank you for calling 24-7 representing ..." and the option to leave a voice message with my phone number & name and be removed from their list within 48 - hope it works.
I was called last night.
It showed as a political call.
Their objective was/is I was told to raise money for the objective of getting Congress to act on illegal immigration.
Also, to make sure Hillary Clinton wasn't elected. I told them I do not give anything over the phone to anyone to send me info via the mail and I'd look at it. They were very open to that and then asked me if my address was.......which they had correctly. I doubt I'll ever get any material from them
This is a group interested in border security from Arizona and are fund raising.
i never answer the it. But they just called now again and it is 9:15pm on a Friday night. This is crazy they all 5 times a day for the past month......
Many calls from this number
Asked to confirm residential information. Offered free gold master card which I never asked. Never presented itself.
Tried to answer but the caller hung up. I won't answer calls from this number anymore.
They called and asked for my dad, they call about every day half an hour before my dad gets home.
A guy called to sell master card. The poor line quality and the way he read the script with Indian accent gave me this impression that he was an employee of one of those outsourced services in India. They may provid service to different businesses. So expect different offers from them.
If you do not answer the phone they do not leave any message. The only way to get rid of them is having your phone company to block their number.
They call repeatedly!!!!!!! When will it end?????????
i don't answer, they don't leave messages.
these scammers hang up as soon as i pick up
Regarding 416-922-8653. Called Rogers about it. They say it's a Bell number and confirmed a Downtown Toronto location. I went to Bell Canada's site and left a complaint message to get them to disconnect the number. I'm also on hold right now to Mastercard to make them aware of the situation (the Teleperformance guys are giving them a bad reputation)... Short of blocking, and paying, for this number, I don't see anything else to do... I suggest looking up bell.ca, search complaint and leave an e-mail...Per the web, this has been going on since 2003... ENOUGH!
I'm starting to get these annoying calls to. I live in Victoria BC Canada. I guess I have to get call block now at my expense to stop these calls. They never say anything. Leave no messages. Just call. Makes no sense. sigh...
This shows up on my phone as Political Call Center in Mesa AZ. Today I was asked if I support tougher border patrols. Ya'think?
DO NOT SEND MONEY. They circumvent the DO NOT CALL rules by making political calls. RUN, DON'T WALK
they called. Wanted to know if i approved of military use to control illegal immigration. Wanted money. I am on do not call. Has been atleast 10 days since the last call from this number or series of numbers. I keep a runnimg spreadsheet on these guys, who they are and when they call.
Bunch of pests. Won't stop calling. I hang up. This one came from North Dakota.
I finally answered, a guy asked if Mr. or Mrs was home. I said 'speaking' and then the line went dead. Sounds like they are data mining.
Call the manager at this number (480-603-3797) and ask for your number to be removed. If that doesn't work 480-603-3795 also reaches a human.
These guys never stop calling. Despite repeated requests for them to stop they continue calling.
Called this number back, got a message: "Thank you for calling 24-7. We are a service bureau serving the private sector. If you would like your number removed please leave a detailed message with your name and number including area code and your number will be removed within 48 hours. Thank you and have a great day."
dial the number, when answered hit # then repeatedly hit 2 this will hold the line open and avoid the automatic cutoff. its a small retaliation but it feels good
Call came from North Dakota area code. Caller won't say anything. I press # key a few times and hang up.
Same story..."Political Call" and no one there when answered. They call daily or every other day. Nuisance!
I get a call from this number every week day. When I answer no one answers. It comes up Political Call. It is irritating.
Someone from this number left a nasty message on my answering machine.
oh, by the way I looked up that number and it is a land line in Mesa, AZ
I got a call from this number today, which is Sunday, at 3:45pm. No one talked but I could hear them there. I picked up my line phone and they thought I hung up and then they hung up. I called this number back and a females voice stated that the message box for the do not call box is full to push 1 or 2 for another service. They should charge them for the long distance call that I will now be charged for just to see if someone would tell me why they are calling.
call o once a day
"unknown caller" I'm going to blast them with my party air horn the next time they call.
Happened to me also they never leave a message and the number is 866-701-8375.
When you call you get this message "you have reached 24/7 sevice Bureau for the private sector. etc. If you wish your numer removed ..stay on the line and leave a mesasge. etc...
This has happened for about 1 yr It appears to be a Master card tele-marketing call . The Gentleman has a strong Accent ? East Indian in origin . I simply say no thanx & Hang -up
At least 2 times a day for several months, getting to be BS!
Every day we calls from this number and "politcal call" no one ever leaves a msg or talks.
GET CALLED ALMOST EVERY DAY EVEN WEEKENDS !!!!!
I was trying to take an online course and getting stressed out from getting too many calls. 480-603-3796; Unknown Caller
Coming up on caller ID "unknown name" several times a day but never leave a message. I'm glad to know others have posted their information here, it has helped solve the mystery caller. Thanks !
The Do Not Call List apparently doesn't apply to political organizations which is BS if you ask me, The Following was found on the National Do Not Call Registry website:
Who May or May Not Call?
Who is covered by the National Do Not Call Registry?
The National Do Not Call Registry applies to any plan, program, or campaign to sell goods or services through interstate phone calls. This includes telemarketers who solicit consumers, often on behalf of third party sellers. It also includes sellers who provide, offer to provide, or arrange to provide goods or services to consumers in exchange for payment.
The National Do Not Call Registry does not limit calls by political organizations, charities, or telephone surveyors.
They called me today, and asked me to if I wanted a mastercard and I said sure, the person that picked up did not inform me that it was this type of number until i hung up when asked about my SIN number.
First call Thursday 19July 3:30pm
Second call Friday 20July 1:19pm
called ID "out of area"
I WORKED THERE. THEY RIP THEIR EMPLOYEES BAD. I SUGGEST YOU DO NOT TRUST THIS SITUATION. DON'T GIVE TO IT. PUBLIC DOES NOT KNOW WHERE MONEY GOES.
I WORKED THERE.. TWO DAYS. THAT’S HOW LONG IT TOOK THEM TO EXPLAIN FULLY TO ME HOW BADLY THEY WERE GOING TO RIP ME OFF. $240.00 TERMINATION FEE ON QUIT OR FIRE. NO FINAL PAYCHECK ON FINAL PAYCHECK PAYDAY. NO INSURANCE, VAC,. NOTHING. MINIMUM WAGE ON FINAL PAYCHECK. HEY FOLKS IF THEY TRY TO DO THIS TO PEOPLE THEY HAVE TO LOOK IN THE EYE, WHAT DO YOU SUPPOSE THEY’LL DO WITH ANY FUNDS YOU DONATE. THIS IS A HIGHRISE OFFICE YOU PAY FOR WHEN YOU DONATE. THEY CAN’T EXPLAIN WHAT PERCENTAGE GOES TO THEIR CAUSE. I QUIT IMMEDIATELY.
July 19th, 2007 (6:30 PM PST)
Getting 1 call every other day. No one ever says anything. No background noise. Hangs up quickly when I answer.
I used *67 to block my number and called 480.603.3796.
I heard a recorded meesage saying "PCC" was not bound by the do not call list - but that they had their own internal DNC list - so I left our number.
If calls persist I will call the police.
1 call today; caller said my name twice, then mumbled something unintelligible and hung up. Sounded like a call center in the background. Caller ID displayed only "Out of Area" and the number.
Called on 7-15, twice on 7-17, and once today 7-18 at various hours of the day. No messages are left on recorder. Answered twice and no one responds.
Used to get calls all the time, then the calls quit. Now we are getting them again! 2 and 3 a day! So frustrated! Last call came in after 9 p.m. I asked the guy if he knew what time it was. "No I don't", and then he tried to start in on his spiel. I told him it was too late at night to call and he hung up.
yep..just got it
416-922-8653 has been calling for a week. I only pick up and say hello once as I know the whole automatic dialing thing. Nothing is ever said so I start playing around with the keypad to at least give the moron on the other end an earful.
It's getting really old though.
After getting many calls from this # for the past several months, finally answered with a line from the movie Elf: "Buddy the Elf, what's your favorite color?" I heard "What?" from the caller then click.
Got 3 calls in a half hours time. Caller ID states unknown caller. Have been getting these calls everyday for who knows how long. Getting really tired of them. Ready to go off on someone. If and when I donate money it will be my chose not from someone I don't know.

3-4 times a week to my cell phone in Saskatchewan, I receive call from 416-922-8653 number. I havent answered the call as of yet. No caller ID other than the number and they never leave a voice mail. Unless my bank released my number to them - I have no clue how they managed to get an unlisted cell phone number.
I get these calls also. Apparently they are indifferent to the DNC list. If someone could find out which Telephone Company provides this service then we could all call THEM and complain about harrasing calls each time we get a call.
I hung up and then got a call moments later saying in a nasty tone that I hung up on her, then two days later a call came in saying I would pay for what I did, kept repeating that. He hung up.
This number called several times. I'm writing to my senators and congressman to suggest legistation against having annoying political calls.
Stop calling 3 to 4 times a day. It's annoy, I answer and phone is dead.
Please stop calling me.
Very annoying. I get many calls from them, which I do not answer, as I do not answer Unknown Name calls.
This number belongs to MBNA bank of america master card. They want to obtain information about you to entice you into taking a credit card from them. MBNA is one of the banks cited to the US government for engaging in unfair business practices. They punish people with very high interest rates if they are day or two late with their payment. They constantly shift the due dates and they are generally considered scum. These people called my home constantly until one evening I actually had a voice at the other end who knew my name and address and then pressed me for more details. If they call again report them to the law enforcement in your area. You can read about them on the internet
again, spammers, scammers, you just have to love'em; please, please, guys, do not even pick up, let alone actually dealing with them; if you pick up by mistake just say everybody died in that household, only vampires live there, something funny like that so that they realize you're not up to their game; immediately state that you will hang up since you know the call is immoral and that's the end of the conversation, emphasize you will finish it in the next three seconds and do it!
Hang up call.
They called tonight at 620, I wasn't home, no message. I've signed up with CMA (Canada's pathetic Do Not Call) list, so if they call again, I'll inform them of that, then report them to CMA. NOT that it'll help...basically a waste of my time, but whatever.
I keep getting calls from them, but when I have answered the hang up. By the way - remember that the Do Not Call List does not apply to political calls, so unfortunatly these s---heads are exempt.
call every other day, never leave message
I just got a second called from those guys, 10 min later after the 1st one, it's kind of annoying. I told him I wanted to be remove from the list and he took a realy sad tone, like if he couldn't feed is family tonight, anyway. He said he was sorry to disturb me on the behalf of MBNA, but seriously I will never go with them just for making a private sector flood me with phone spam!!
Just got a phone call from them, when I answered there was no one at the end of the line. Many people ask why? well it's simple, they use automatic dialer and when they get someone on the line, they will as soon has they can take the call and start their "blabla". I waited for about 1min and a half and finaly someone answerer. He called on the behalf of MBNA. I told him we were not interested and not to call back again, I heard him laugh, but I don't care their just a bunch of moron!
I called the number and got an answering machine - it says you can LEAVE A MESSAGE with your name and phone number to be taken off of the list.
FWIW: Got a call from a 800#, I hungup.
Moments later (
MBNA sales pitch... from a scummy marketing company that does this on behalf of a number of client companies. The silence at the start of the call occurs because their telemarketing hardware does not switch to a voice operator until YOU talk.
Told them to never call me again.
Their main number (with alive human being!) is 480-603-3797. They removed my number right away and have received no more calls since.
have gotten this # numerous times in past several weeks. Always hangs up. No message or answer. Always shows number (in Phoenix, AZ) never a name.
Daily calls from this number; never a person or recording. Very annoying!
No message, of course. Several calls over the recent month. Caller ID shows "POLITICAL CALL."
Readout: Political Call
Was not home, no msg left

Constant calls with no anwsers! No messages left. This is annoying!!
Does any one know where PCC get our information from?
Never give them any info over the phone!
I called the number and the message says you can leave your name and phone number to get on their own do not call list. Its dumb that political calls aren't subject to the regular do not call list...
No Message just a hang up
They phoned last week and there was no answer. Again yesterday and I told them I wasn't interested. Today, I just hung up.
another one of those scam calls, just don't answer it, guys
I've gotten a call from this number almost every night for the past month. It is usually around 6-8PM ET. I usually do not pick up the call and leave it on the answering machine. I called the number back from my tollfree service I pay for (I'm a realtor), and it identified the called as just "POLITICAL CALL" which did not show on the caller ID before at all when calls come into my house. It is annoying!
received many calls from this # and never heard anyone speak. called back 480/603-3797 and asked to be taken off the call list.
Dial the # then choose 2 then dial 480-603 3797~ and it's the supervisor of PCC company. I left no message
when I called the number it had a "full" message for the do not call line.
Get calls all the time by this number. Called back, someone answered, and the guy acted like he had no idea what was going on. I'm on the DNC list too. GAH
3 times in 3 hours already.
I WORKED THERE. THEY RIP THEIR EMPLOYEES BAD. I SUGGEST YOU DO NOT TRUST THIS SITUATION. DON'T GIVE TO IT. PUBLIC DOES NOT KNOW WHERE MONEY GOES.
Wanted to know if I like Bush.
Several calls from this number asking for my Dad who is deceased. Uttered some crude remark and hung up.
I keep getting calls from this number but they never leave a message and my number is on the dnc list also.
They call every day, 2-3 times a day. When i try to pick up - they hang up. very annoying. Shows out of area on my caller id
ya this is ridiculous, they call three weeks straight (everyday) and then they don't call for a week or two and then its back to the same old.
Called 480-603-3797 and asked to be taken off call list. A man answers ...he was very polite and said hold on.. okay go .. great we'll take you off right now.
Tried to call number back and the Do not call voice mail box is full
I have receiv
I am on the no call list.
How do they get away with this?
It states "unknown name"
VJ BELOW. I live in Mesa where these calls originate from. Office located in Mesa, Arizona's most prestigious high rise office building. Stopped in to make my donation. Perfectly legit operation.
P.C.C. is a non-profit Republican Party oriented "Political Call Center" which solicits donations primarily for Right-To-Life-Leaning politicians to assist in their campaigns for election or re-election.
i called mastercard and cancelled my card because of these calls.
Since they called me several times a day for months, I have memorized their telephone number. When it comes up on my caller ID, I let my answering machine hang up on them due to their silence. I'm just thankful they don't have my cell phone number.
I called the number back. After several rings I got a message saying its the a Political Call Center blah blah blah, there was no one to answer my call at the time. So Jim was right. Call it if you want more info.
Someone from this number has been calling me for months. I have asked them to stop, I do not wish to respond to any telemarketing calls.
We get lots of hangups from this number.
3-4 times a day to my cell phone. along with a 416-922-8653 number. I havent answred the call as of yet as it seems these numbers are telemarketers. No caller ID other then the number and they never leave a voice mail. unless they are getting my cell number from my Bank- i have no clue how they managed to get an unlisted cell phone number.
other people have gotten off of the list by calling (480)603-3797. The calls are from Mesa, Arizona- Polital call Center. I am calling the number tomorrow to have my name removed.
Caller ID Political Call.
No message left.
If it's the prolife people I'm going to ask them to please support Ron Paul!
I got a call from 1-866-701-8375 at 7.05pm on Friday May 25 2007, the guy on phone was trying to approve me for an MBNA Mastercard, as I was entertaining some guests over a barbecue. I asked him how he got my number and my personal info. (phone #, address, and who know what else). He told me he got it from the bank. I asked which bank. He told me MBNA. I told him I don't bank with them. I asked him how they got the info. He told me he doesn't know. I spoke to the supervisor, and manager who told me they were calling from a call-centre marketing the MBNA credit card. I have opted-out for tele-marketing and solicitation with the Canadian Marketing Association (CMA), who confirmed that MBNA is one of their mambers. I have asked the CMA why I should have received a call from one of their members when I have opted out.
I get calls from them on my cell...constantly. Several times a day, every day, for about a month now. I have a Capital One Mastercard that has my cell number on file, and I believe it stems from that.
Unknown name shows on caller ID, get at leat one call per night on this.
And yet the calls keep coming in.
i've gotten telemarketing calls from MBNA Canada before, so i figured this was them again. called them directly (1-800-347-6262) and the agent i talked to said she could at least remove me from their internal call list, so we'll see if that helps.
These folks call repeatedly. I never answer. They never leave a message. I am going to block them based on the comments here.
They call every single day.
I am on the Do Not Call registry, so I went to their website and filed a complaint. Took about 1 minute...we'll see if it works! I listed their name as Political Call Center and provided their #.
They keep on calling and hanging up when i answer
Just got called from here. I answered, and got silence and then a click.
This number consistently shows up on my phone daily. I called it back and got a recording saying "Thank you for calling 24-7 representing the service bureau. If you would like to have your number removed, please leave your name and phone number" I left my phone number (not my name) and a message stating that if they didn't remove my number I would report their number to the property authorities for harassment. Seems to have worked, no more calls.
Hang up call on answering machine tonight. *69'd for number, then Googled and landed here. First call from the number that I know of. Discouraged by posted reports. Anyone live in AZ who can visit the address?
Caller asked for me by name, then said, "this is Anna Velasquez calling on behalf of [a republican issues organization]. In general do you approve or disapprove of the job that George Bush is doing?" I said I don't answer polls and the caller apologized and hung up.
No idea...no message left.
'Political Call' on Caller ID, 44 calls in the last few weeks, never answer the phone...
i called the # back and I get a recording that says "thank you for calling 24/7..if you would like to reserve a number..." Getting many calls from this number
2nd call in as many days.
Wanted to know if I thought it was a good idea to Have Hillary for prez... when I said no they said they needed money to make sure it doesn't happen... I just said "Fred Thompson fore President" and hung up on them.
tired of my phone ringing constantly i have resorted to answering their(MBNA) calls...i politely declined the first time thinking this would be the end of it BUT NO....they keep calling every two weeks and each time it is someone with such a heavy accent you can't understand what they are saying and each time i say i am not interested thinking it will stop but it never does....so even answering doesn't help with these clowns...so now i have resorted back to just ignoring it and letting it ring
Phone rang and I answered. No one at other end. Just got a click.
Did not answer. No message left.
Called 480-603-3797 and asked to be taken off call list. A man answers and it sounds like just a call to a residence but when asked to be removed he was very polite and said he would do it right away. We'll see...
nothing but noise and mumbling at firstThen they asked for my brother who lives 1500 miles away.
I demanded "who is this" to which they replied."so how do you think george bush is doing?"
Complaints filed with FTC and FCC and phone company.
Several annoying calls.... call back and express your feelings on unsolicited hang up calls... all 480 area codes with the 603 prefix...
real person's desk - 3790
employment office - 3797
fax - 3791
job line - 3792
Have your own fun... call 480.603.379 something and you too can entertain yourself after being woken up on a saturday afternoon... i work nights
The person that said to call 480-603-3797 to get number off list is correct. I gave them my number and they took it off immediately. The 3796 number says voicebox full. They have been calling at 9pm for the last several nights and I ripped the last person, you think they would have gotten a clue then.
ON caller ID 3 times in the last week. I am on do not call list
Next time they call... just keep saying "Hello" until they get tired of listening to you. When they hang up on you, you're always a winner!
This number has called us six times in one day. I called them back an got a recorded message.
They phoned again today and I answered- they asked for my name and wanted me to verify my address. I provided neither. Nor could they say who they were trying to reach. I asked for their business name, address and then for some odd reason we were disconnected.
I let it go to the answering machine, and no message was left.
Daily calls. I simply lift received and replace it immediately. Am sick and tired of this. Why be on "no-call" list?
They did not say anything
I called the number back and recieved a message stating that they are a political call center there for not restricted by the Do not call list. also stated was leave your name and phone number and they will take you off the list hey what can it hurt they already call you every day. probably home land security doing voice tracking stuff.
Someone with a heavy (Indian?) accent calling on behalf of MBNA to offer me some card as an affinity program for having a travel points card with Best Western (true). Asked to confirm name and address, which I was willing to do, but then started to delve into the credit application part -- how long have you lived there, what's your date of birth -- which I wouldn't disclose. I said they had enough information to send an application by mail. I doubt that will happen. MBNA uses this over-the-phone method which I'll never go along with because any identity thief could do the same.
answered the call. Republican Issues Campaign
wanted a minimum donation of $35 and prefer credit card don't pick up the call is my suggestion
Have received several calls from this number on my cell phone, but they leave no message, so I haven't called back.
Only rang twice, then hung up..don't know who it is.
They have called every day this week and when I answer, all I get is silence. Very annoying.
I left a message requesting to be removed again. Let's see what happens.
Called at 9 PM PT and asked for my wife by name. She said yes, this is her, and then they hung up. Weird.
My boyfriend has recieved numorous calls from this number as well, but every time he has answered all he hears is breathing, but no other response. These people need to stop bugging our citizans. Annoying people will get them no where!!
Have rec'd multiple calls within last wk. Do not ans unidentified callers. What is process for reporting to the states' Comsumer Protection Office?
I called the number back and a voice recording said "this is a service bureau serving the private sector". Whatever they're calling about, I won't answer.
Wanted me to sponser the republican party. Wanted me to use my credit card after caller told me she would send a letter out if we could pledge.I told her we would think it over. I talked to one lady and then she turned me over to a man to see if he could get the money by credit card. He insisted so I hung up on him!
wish they would leave us alone. one to three calls per day.
I have receive several calls from this number. And like others when I do answer I get no response. I am on the No Call list, what can be done? Very Annoying!
Got call @ 8:00 Pacific Time. Guy ask if I supported President Bush. I ask him to take me off call list immediately & that I was on DNC list. He hung up. Am reporting each incident to the California Attorney Generals office.
Got call again 3/9/07
and immediate hang up. Star 69'd and got quest phone service representative. This is a call center representing many interests, not just political!
Called and halting voice asked for me by name. I asked who's this? 2 seconds of silence, and then I hung up. I am on DNC list.
Called @ 12:24pm. When I answered the phone after the first ring, the person just hung up.
FOUND THEM- Try this number you will get through to a person and tell them in person to take your number off the list- 480-603-3797.
I have had several calls from this number but no one speaks when I answer, but I hear the click from hanging up.
No name, no msg..just silence. If anyone thinks that this is the way to sway our influence, It worked for me. I am opposed to whatever they are working for
When answered, no response. Multiple calls with this ID have come in.
It is possible to fake the caller ID number so that is not proof of anything.
Whoever is behind this must be stopped. They violate "do not call" listings.
Called the manager number,
and asked to be removed.
Will update if i get calls back from them.
I called a couple of weeks ago and left my number as their message says so they will delete me from their call list. They called again tonight. I called back to leave my # again as a "do not call" and got a voice mail saying "The mailbox - 'do not call list' - is full." Sounds like they've been busy. @@
They call at least 5 times a weeks and we haven't donated anything!
They called me a few times now. Never leave a message. I changed my machine and they thought it was a person. All they did was ask for me by my last name then hung up. (pronounced wrong) Had some accent.. couldnt place it.
They've been calling constantly for the last few weeks. We pick up but no one's on the other line.
we *69 our calls...no caller id...but they just hang up
I've started getting these calls recently. Did a *69 to get the number. No one talks, they just hang up after I say hello. It's starting to tick me off. I don't have LD on that phone, so I'd have to call them from my cell phone -- I'm afraid to call them from that number for fear of giving them yet another number to bug me at!
"unknown name" on ID
Caller asked to speak with Mr or Mrs. Told caller they were not here. Caller said she would call back later. Would not say who she was or what she wanted
Did not answer...no message left. I think we should all call the manager's number everyday and not speak...or actually talk to the the calling representative and give the most meaningless answers to their questions. "Peanut Butter and Jelly" is the perfect answer for everything!
2 calls recently, 2007-02-02, 12:48pm- "Political Call" and 2007-02-06, 6:01pm- "Unknown Name".
they call random times throughout the day. I don't answer and they don't leave a message. this is dumb! they need to stop!! what other kind of information do they have about me???
Caller Id showed just phone #. Blank in caller name field, also called 1-23and 2-1. No message left.
Political call - many times over the last month or so - no message
Repeated calls from this number. They just won't stop calling!
needs to cease
After 1 month of abusive calls, someone appears at the end of the phone ....
They call every day
i tracked them down to a manager's employment phone number- 1-480-603-3797- it connects to an actual person. call them. if they change the number you can get the new one from their 24 hour jobs hotline-480-774-7346. they call and never speak. call and let them know you don't want their calls. they claim exemption from dnc list because they make political calls. call them. let them waste their time answering the phone. They may change their tactics.
Get numerous calls at all hours from this "Out of Area" number, with bursts right around election time. As far as the Do Not Call list, I am on it too BUT political groups and charities are exempt from the DNC law. Check out www.ftc.gov and scroll down to #29.
caller id say "political call i ansered and they stayed on line for a little bit then hang up
They won't quit calling. I just turning the phone on and back off!
called again 1/15 10:15am EST
When I answered the phone no one was there but heard some background noise.
need to know who is calling
They called me 4 times in 24 hrs. no one talk and 1 time on my answering machine and no message
Can't somebody or something stop this harrassment - do we need better legislation and how do we go about it
No message. On DNC list too.
been calling everyday for a week now. no message.
Asked for my wife and couldn't pronounce our name (dead giveaway). Hung up when told she was not here any more.
Getting tons of calls from these people. I never answer it. Shows up as a "Political call" on caller ID
get calls from this number at least everyother day..sometimes twice a day. If I answer, no one responds even though you can hear them talking in the backgound, I just put the phone down and go on with what I am doing...let them foot the bill.
CALLED TODAY AND IM ON THE DO NOT CALL LIST
Repeated calls from these buttheads; they need to just go away.
I stopped answering the phone unless the name appears.
No message, they just hung up. Not sure who they think they are representing, but the twits can just go bugger off!

Maybe it could help some one
I return called the number. An answering machine picked up and the message stated they were calling for a political cause, and therefore not subject to the DNC regulations, BUT if I wanted to leave my number they would add it to their internal DNC list. I did so...we'll see if it gets better or worse.
idiots....called 4 times today already and there's NO ONE on the line...
sure wish someone could provide me with a computer phone program that would dial their number a hundred times a minute!!!!
Keeps calling at 8:46pm a few times a week. No one answers when I say, "Hello".
caller id has logged 7 calls from this number in roughly 2 weeks.
calls came in the daytime, afternoon, & early evenings- weekdays and weekends.
all logged as "out of the area"
didn't answer the phone
asked for someone with my last name
incorrect first name
I said,no one here by that name, she hung up.
Caller ID says out of area
We've had many, many calls from this number. If we pick up, we hear nothing. If it goes to the machine, they don't leave a message. VERY annoying.
Multiple weekly contacts. They do not leave a message and do not answer a pickup.
Shut these people down!!!
Also note: variation of this phone # also called (408) 603-3796. Note: same #, different area code.
What sounded like an African American male called asking for my wife. Said he was from "Republican Issues Campaign". I stopped the call then.
Calls from this number have been driving me insane. Please advise as to why they cannot read that I am on the Do Not Call List?
I have been getting calls from this number, which shows up as "Unknown Name". They never leave a message. When I picked up this time, no one said anything.
Nobody ever speaks. Calls all day every day. Says Unknown Name.
This number calls us at least once a day and hangs up or doesnt say anything when we answer. It is VERY bothersome.
At least 1-2 calls/day from this number - and when I do answer, no one is there! Very tiresome - and I, too, am on the DNC list. I'll be filing a complaint. p.s. this site is great! I just discovered it.
Call came at 16:41(pm) CST.
"Unknown Name" on Caller ID.
When I picked up the phone, I said "Hello" and there was about a 3 second delay. Then this girl starts off a script something like "I'm calling from Republican Issues. . ." at which point I hung up.
This is the fourth call to our house from this number.
Called twice within two hours so far, didn't leave a message. Caller ID did not register any info, had to *69 to get the number.
"Pro-Life Campaign committee"
When I called back it said they were "PCC Political Call Center".
Finally got a response from them after this number called me several times in the past couple of months.
Came in while at work was just googling.
no message on machine. No info on caller I.D. came in 11-07. at 11:44 a.m
I keep getting this phone call as well on my caller id. Thanks for posting this on the web so I knew who this was.
Just said NAME UNAVAILABLE picked up and they hung up
Just filed complaint with national DNC registry.
Jagoffs call here all of the time and hang up! I am on the DNC list as well.
Keeps hanging up. Called back and got answereing machine saying "Jeff"
out of area call at 2:30 est on 10/26/06
no one on other end of line
Have been calling since July 06
Caller ID shows only the # (480-603-3796). DeLorme Street Atlas USA indicates this is a Phoenix, AZ 85085. I answered announcing a ficticous business name (XYZ Garage). That way, if they ask for me I can choose to either talk or tell them they are calling a business# & dig for info w/o letting them know it is I that answered. i.e., instead of answering their question counter by asking THEM a question. This seems to work very well (& drives the caller nuts!). Anyway, I answered and got no response other than obvious office background noises.
Displays - Political Call on caller ID. We receive at least 2 calls per day
Call a couple of times a week, looking for my son who is in college.
Got another call from them.... never leaves a message
out of area
I quit answering because we are getting so many calls asking for donations. We are also on the No Call list. We have been getting several calls a day lately.
I got this call for the first time tonight. I let it go to answering machine, but they hung up. I love this site, it is really helpful!
Called 10/03 and 10/02 but hung up when answered on 2nd ring
Call with no one talking. Just heard what sounded like a call center in the background.
They have called for master card and will never give up.
Don't talk to them! Just hang up.
Been getting them a lot recently so I answered, she asked for my roomate by name, when I stated she wasn't there and politely asked if they would like to leave a message, she asked for her husband. When I said she didn't have one, she replied "o.k. well, no message" and hung up.
Another "probing" call.
5th call since 8/22.
No name, no msg..just silence. Very tiresome!Would like to know what cause? What political group???
they have called 3 times in 24hrs and never say anything
5th call since 8/22
UNKNOWN NAME 2006-08-31
If I could find out where they are I would buy some portable air horns and have fun at their offices.
Didn't answer it, they call frequently throughout the day. I am on the Do Not Call list and they still call daily.

I never answer the phone when I see "out of area" or "unknown name", but they are very frequent..5-10 a day, and I'm on the "No Call" list.
My wife donated $35 to their cause. I am worried that it is a scam and am looking for more info. Please advise.
