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.
