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
some jerk |
somejerk calls from 8 phone numbers:
Called twice and left blank voice mails twice.
Morons called an unlisted, public safety agency (emergency operations)cell phone. Unfortunately, DNC regs exempt organizations conducting "surveys". But that doesn't exempt them from being ignorant, annoying assholes.
Called 2/25/14 no message left
Called 2/28/14 hung up when I answered
YOU VIRGINIA RESIDENTS REALLY NEED TO GET A LIFE AND STOP MAKING OUTGOING CALLS TO US CONNECTICUT RESIDENTS AND LEAVE US ALONE! WHENEVER ANY OF YOU VIRGINIA RESIDENTS ARE USING YOUR AUTOMATIC RECORDING MACHINES WHICH MAKE OUTGOING CALLS IN SEQUENCE, YOU'RE SOLICITING AND WOULD LIKE YOU TO STOP CALLING US AND MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS!
Hang up when you answer
They are constant callers offering to lower my rates, but I have told them many times that they have told me that I do not qualify, yet they do not remove me from the list.
Another card holder services call!@#$@#$%%$^!
I received another call just now. My plan was to give a false credit card number and mess with them, but the telemarketer was too interested in talking to the person next to them. She made the pitch, but had no interest in following-up even when I told her I had 8 grand in debt at 21% interest. At that point she just hung up on me. These callers are probably only interested in getting their minimum wage paycheck and could care less whether you respond or not.
Anyway here is the only solution I can offer. It will probably do no good, but at least it can make some of our voices heard. Also with the statement about the NSA below I am trying to send a message about how the priorities of our government are misguided.
I have created a petition on the White House website. If it gets 100,000 signatures the President will review it. If you agree with it please log-in to the White House website and sign the petition and let everyone you know about it. Thanks for your support.
We petition the Obama administration to:
Crackdown on fraudulent telemarketers and Do Not Call List violations
Request the Federal Government make a stronger effort to crack down on telemarketing operations who make fraudulent offers, attempt to steal credit card numbers and frequently violate the Do Not Call list. If the NSA is capable of tracking the phone calls and e-mails of individual American citizens, certainly the US Government has the resources to discover and prosecute call centers making millions of phone calls a month from a small number of locations. Please Mr. President put a stop to these criminal organizations and end the harassment of law-abiding American citizens!
620-504-7452 - Come on is to lower your credit card interest rates. They ask a series of questions about your debt total across how many cards. The which card do you think has the highest rate. Then they ask your Zip Code. They will say for security please only provide the last 4 of your SS number. Then they ask for the credit card number and exp date. They put you on hold and call the automated system for the card. I gave them a card for Capitol One that was no good. Been replaced. I wasted as much time as possible. Said I had to go out to car get card. When I finally gave them the number they put me on hold and came back saying that the card had been replaced with a new card. I said oh yea that's correct, I grabbed the wrong card. Hang on while I go out and get the new one. He held for a while and then I came back and started to give him 4 numbers, and then stopped. I ask him why he was calling from a disconnected phone number? He said not sure what is up with that. Said I'm just the call taker. Then I ask why his number has SCAM all over it when searched online? He finally hung up. I like screwing with these jerks. Wast their time and pisses them off. Tell next time. I get 1 to 2 of these call per week. Then publish their number on every site possible.
This time this number called I played along & pretended to be old. This jerk asked for my cc#. This is a GIANT SCAM!!!!!Please remind your elderly family mambers & young adults to NEVER give out their personal info to people who call.
call every other day no message
I think is a ripoff they want your social security number and your card number BE CAREFULL
Said they were from cardholder services about my accounts. I hung up. I've received previous calls from them (altho don't know if it was from same number), and asked to be removed. Yeah, right!
Another marketing call? Who is Rachel anyway? Why hasn't Gov done anything about these people by now? "Rachel" must be on the top 10 most wanted by now!
Another marketing call? Who is Rachel anyway? Why hasn't FCC done anything about these people by now? "Rachel" must be on the top 10 most wanted by now!
this time it was account from account ervices.. they just keep calling. what the heck can we do to stop them
A scam called Credit Card Services. Don't fall for it. They hung up on me when I told them to stop calling and take my number off their list. I've tried to press "3" for remove and it doesn't' work and telling them in person also does not work. Best thing to do is keep reporting the number to FTC They call from about 6 different numbers.
Got 2 missed calls from this number. No message. When I called it back i got a recording that said "The number you have dialed has not been allocated."
It's another scam from Credit Card Services. I tried to get a hold of the customer rep but I got transferred to a recorded message. The message said to call a 1-800 number, which I did but it was a wrong number. The people at the wrong number told me that they've been getting a lot of calls like mine. They also stated that they have contacted Credit Card Services, so they can fix the problem but it still persists.
Rachel from credit card services sure has a lot of phone numbers! Total spam. Why can't the justice Dept do their jobs and stop these scammers??
Called on my cell phone. When I answered they hang up. Scammers..
Credit card scam. Says they want to lower my interest rate, but I have NO credit cards.
some type of fraud
telemarketers won't leave me alone.
I use a portable air horn that you can hear two miles away. Auto parts store about $13, runs on a can of compressed air, included. When they start talking, I give them a blast that will destroy their hearing for a few hours. They usually wear a headset and cannot get it off fast enough. I enjoy their calls, but they never seem to call back. Wonder why???
this stupid pedophillic motherfucker actually took the time to hide himself and his number, but being the turd that he is, he is unaware that there are "vays of finding you". When I get all the info on these dumbass dune coons, there will be a Jihad like no other, and we use pictures of Mohammed to do our work.
Several calls over several days; no messages left
Oregon Education Survey - they gave a 1-877 number to call back and complete the survey. -
Dont call back
they called and I did not answer, no message left
They hang up when you answer but the caller ID displayed McPherson KS
Called while I was away from phone but left no message.
CALLER ID SAYS... FALVA AND INMAN AT THE CITY LISTED ABOVE. DIDN'T BOTHER TO PICK UP THE CALL. BLOCKED THEM USING MR NUMBER.
They hung up on me when I answered the phone too.
They did not leave message
The Canadian government trying to intimidate parents who report to the police about pedophiles working in the Ontario school boards.
Please block this call it is continuous and annoying
They called and left no message.
do not call list is a big frigging joke
offered 15 bucks to take poll no thanks I like my pole
Claims to be from CDC in Virginia
Some stupid pain in the ass.
They called, 7:30 pm. Lots of mumbling noise. Asked to not call again. They called 10 minutes later. Noise on background. I said nothing, they hung up after 10 seconds. They called again 2 minutes later.
I have no idea who this is. They called, got our answering machine and I heard the hang up as if it were a live person, not a machine.
Got a call about 5 minutes ago. Girl said she was from some political polling organization. I asked her who is paying for the poll, and she replied in all seriousness, "oh, the poll is free." I said, no, who is paying your firm to take this poll, to which she replied... wait for it... "I don't know." I told her that she should never call my number again and hung up.
I am on the no call list. Why do these folks think they can call me?????
The unwanted calls has become just numerous and out of control, I really think the phone companies have something to do with it so everyone sign up for unlimited call plans.
They started calling two weeks ago in the evening. Only dead air when I answered the first time. Now I decline the call. What a pain.
They are calling my cell phone even though I signed up for do not call...they called me today at 7:21 EST and 2 days ago...I called the number and it is Issues and answers...research center for opinions. Still I do not want them to call my cell and I do not know where they got the number. Seriously, I want to file a complaint!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Called around 8:30 p.m. I don't know anyone in Virginia so I didn't pickup. Will file report with FTC (see below) and suggest others do the same, especially if they are on the DoNotCall Registry like myself. Form is very short and quick.
Left creepy voicemail with really heavy breathing for 13 seconds... DID I MENTION CREEPY!!! I called the number back after reading these comments and it said it was the Issues and Answers network and we did recently finish a claim with Allstate... I might call Allstate and tell them that these people are very unprofessional.
I am on the do not call registry and still keep getting
calls from this number!!!
This number has called incessantly for the last two weeks. All hours of the day, and late into the evening. Never leaves a message, but lets the phone ring 20+ times before giving up.
they called my cell but didnt leave a message???
4 calls to my cell phone in 2 days. Never leaves a message.
Tom, ''the whole idea'' of the federal DNC registry was to help us control sales callers. It's been a great success in this house and many others I know. If you'd like to go back to chasing down every compliant sales caller with your no-call demands, go ahead and drop your registration.
You were never promised relief from every single call which you personally don't want. ''The Feds'' are not about to waste their time on DNC complaints regarding calls *WHICH ARE EXEMPT* from the Telemarketing Sales Rule. As to what you ''understand'' of the rules, surveyors are not held by federal law to the thirteen hour daily calling window imposed on sales and debt collection calls. The more polite firms observe similar hours, and only your state law might say any different.
Q&A: The National Do Not Call Registry
you have to fill out the form in the National registry DNC list.they need a time and date this all happened.You,need to do your part ,to get these dirt bags off the streets.
After a couple hours of trying I finally got through to 1-800-234-7783 to tell Issues and Answers Network Inc. to take me off of their calling list. A live human came on and switched me to a person that could remove me. Of course that person wasn't available so I left my name and number and told them to remove me from their list. I'll probably be making another post when they call again.
The call came at 9:39 p.m. local time. As I understand it, it has been illegal to call after 9:00p.m. local time before no call lists started. What good are NO CALL lists when there are so many exemptions from them? The whole idea is that we don't want to be bothered by people we don't know regardless of why they are calling. The Feds never even acknowledge that they have looked into our complaints let alone taken any action. At least the state of Missouri usually sends you a letter in a few months tellin you the action or lack of ability to take action that they have pursued.
They don't leave messages
For any # I don't recognize, or that comes up "private caller" or "unknown", I answer by saying; "_____ (my town) Police Department". BOY! does THAT get rid of calls like this in a hurry!!
(We're a small Township with no local P.D., so I can get away with it.)
Called 3 times in 52 minutes; 4 times total in 2 hrs. Callback yielded message that they are Issues & Answers, a survey firm, and telling me I could call their PR liaison at 1-800-234-7783. I was put onto someone's voice mail to leave my name & number to be taken off their call list. We'll see! This is only going to get worse between now and November. Politicians wrote the do not call laws to exempt themselves. My only hope is that these people are smart enough to know it's a waste of time asking opinions of someone who is already enraged against you, and will actually delete my numbers.
Called my cell. I called back on LAN line and it said it was a political survey. From Greeshan, OR. Do Not Call lists seem to be a joke.
Hey everyone, with the help of my local police department in Tuscon, AZ, I've proceeded to trace the harassing phone calls down to a business in Belmont, Massachusetts. I've discovered information about the owner of the establishment via google and I'm in the process in filing a law suit against this guy. From my research I've discovered, his name is Chris Perron and it appears he's pissed off a lot of other people and business owners (according to negative feedback on his Merchant Circle account as well as other places). You guys can even see it for yourself, just type the guy's name (Chris Perron) and the business (Datboys Data Recovery) into a google search engine, you can see that guy has got some serious problems and definitely needs psychiatric help. So long story shot, if you have also been receiving death threats and harassment from this guy like I have then please contact me via email so I can link you with some references to put this creep to a stop and end the harassment. By the way everyone, Satan destroys his own!
Please email me at email@example.com if you have questions/concerns.on this, I have a lot more information regarding this.
I have been getting numerous calls from all sorts of unknown to me numbers on my cell phone in the last few months which is listed at Do Not Call. No VM, but some are txts.
Sneak advertisements: Do keep an eye open for advertisements disguised as postings about nuisance phone calls. As of this morning, I have counted at least three or four promoting home upgrade services. This is tacky.
Call on cell not answered
Message below this one is from Pac Tel whom I sent a note to. Their response is coded below
We apologize for the issues you have been experiencing with 9712201118. However this number is Not owned by PacWest Telecom. Please contact the carrier of this number Pacific Telecom Communications Group for more assistance:

Called at 1:35 pm on 3-23-12 and came up as Pacifictel ???
This call showed up on my caller ID as calling on 3/23/2012 at 6:23 PM. Other web sites like this one have specified it's a scam political "survey" where they ask you three "political" questions then promise you a "free" cruise, but you must give your credit card number. YEAH RIGHT!
I'm on the DO NOT CALL list, but "surveys" are exempt. That's how these jerks get around the law, they claim to be a "survey."
This call showed up on my caller ID as calling me on 3/23/2012 at 6:23 PM. Other web sites like this one have indicated it's a "scam" political survey where they ask you three "political" questions then promise you a "free" cruise, but they try to get your credit card number.
called on my cell phone. off limits. How do they get my number. I don't give it to anyone other than friends and family.
I have relatives who live in Oregon, but I don't recognize this number at all.
The call was a recorded survey message. The message was a list of questions for political (republican) purposes IE. Do you approve of President Barack Obama. Chicken Sh..s, gave misleading info IE, by completing the survey you will receive a free cruise to Bahamas.
Cruise scam. They want your credit card number.
Please stop calling?
political survey with 2 days cruise. It is a scammer since they want the credit card.
They called, no message. I didn't pick up. Said it was from Oregon. STOP BOTHERING ME!!!
This number reportedly belongs to a Gresham, OR, customer of Pac-West Telecomm, Inc. of San Francisco. Their email address for notfications of abuse is:
Send your complaints to this email address. perhaps if they get enough of them, they will take appropriate action.
Calling on my cell, which is on Do Not Call List.
An automated phony survey from
Another variation on the number 503-457-1194 that called last week with the SAME SCAM: "Free cruise" for answering some 'political' questions, but then THEY ASK FOR YOUR CREDIT CARD NUMBER. THIS IS A PHISHING SCAM people!
No message left on voice mail. I did not answer the call. Do not know this number or who this is???
Must be on a telemarketing company's "predictive" dialer. If you answer softly the computer will not relay back to the outbound call center rep that there's a live answer. Told them never to call ever again
No message left. Did not answer
I declined call on my cell, they immediately called back. I answered and as usual no one on the other end.
These people have been calling me several times a day for two months now, even calling in the middle of the night. On the rare occassion that I answer it there's nobody there and it hands up after a few seconds.
Called my cell, nobody was on the other end of the line, the call hung-up about 5 seconds after I answered.
This is an information harvesting scam. I got a text to my cell phone from 571-228-1056 claiming that I have won a $1000 Walmart Gift Card and a web site with a code. Went to the site (hxxp://prize-patrol.net/walmart) to see what the scam was, and when you enter the code GIFT it just starts asking for more information.
If you have AT&T and are getting spam texts, check out this article:
One thing it says is, When you receive text spam, forward it to short code SPAM (7726) from your wireless device. There is no charge to report mobile spam. Messages forwarded to 7726 do not count toward your data usage or voice package.
Got a TEXT message from this number - saying "You've been chosen to win a $1,000 WalMart gift card!!!" etc. JERKS. Sent it at 3 AM!!! HATE!!!!!
I called the number back, and I got a recording thanking me for calling Issues and Answers. The recording said that if they had called me, they were interested in my opinions on some marketing something or other. I hung up before the recording finished. I just read the comment from Nathan, and if he is correct, it would have been a legitimate call. We have recently filed a claim with Allstate, and they did say they might follow up with a customer service survey.
sent them to voice mail and they just hung up
Just sent them straight to voice mail. I am also on the do not call list but, political calls are not included on the numbers effected by the do not call list so...as long as it is a political call, we're going to be stuck with it. :(
As others have stated, this is an offer of a two-day cruise to Bermuda offered by a generous benefactor IF I would answer a 30 second political survey. Wow! How can anyone hold back on a generous offer, which as reported below, requires a deposit using a credit card. So, please give a robocaller your credit card because you have a trip. The only trip for this caller entity is to be escorted directly to jail, and do not pass go.
Unknown, no message left
I usually don't answer calls when I don't know the number. Getting tired of these idiots calling, even though I am REGISTERED on the DO NOT CALL list. I got a call from the EFA survey group offering free 2 day/2 night cruise for doing the short survey. As I heard this information, I immediately thought SCAM. Who gives away 2 day/2 night cruise for answering 30 second survey? At the end of the survey, they needed me to pay for the "port fees" to secure my free cruise, $118 per person. I have since blocked their number from calling. Glad to see the DO NOT CALL list is enforced to keep these idiots from wasting our cell phone minutes and time.
Received on cell phone. Did not answer. Will do the most effective thing to make it stop: REPORT THIS NUMBER
TO FTC. Instead of griping, report scam calls with an FTC complaint. (See the bottom of this page for directions.
If enough complaints are reported directly to FTC, then an investation can be speeded up.
It may be great to "vent" here, but you must do more: complaint to FTC.
So, based on the below, it looks like this is a "spoofed" number that the companies use to get to you, even if you're on the Do Not Call list? I got a call from this number on my cell, but I did not pick up. It's amazing how ineffective the "Do Not Call" list has been when I still get junk calls like this. Well, now you know this number is garbage!
I'm so over all of this.....why can't something be done about all the bogus calls and hangups from these companies?
Got a phone call from a number that I don't
480-535-5714 is a "spoofed" number, which means that whoever called you "tricked" your caller ID to display an incorrect phone number. Telemarketers do this so you cannot complain
Don't know if this is true of not, I copied this from CallerComplaints.com:
Spoofed Numbers: Caution, 480-535-5714 is a
I did not answer since caller ID told me that this was another spammer.
1-16-2012, received a call at 9pm. Called this number back and got a recording, Company is Issues and Answers, trying to conduct a survey. Said if you have issues or if they have bothered you to call their corporate office at 1-800-234-7783 and ask for their public relations liaison. Presumably you can have your number removed from their list. I will try it tomorrow and see.
Tired of them calling after I ask to be removed. So... took the bogus survey, listened to the spiel, gave a fake name and CC#. The guy told me not to give them phony CC numbers and waste their time. Imagine that!
Called this morning...registered on the Do Not Call Registry...worthless!
Like Stephen, my wife's cell phone (Verizon) got a call from this number. She did not recognize number so she didn't answer. No message was left.
Got this on my wife's cell phone. All our phones are registered on the national do-not-call list (worthless). Calls are automated (illegal). The FCC needs something to do, why don't they stop this?
just hangs up
Called at 8:04 pm and hung up when the voice mail picked up. Caller ID said Norfolk, VA. We don't know anyone from there.
Sounds like something the f'___ing DNC would do.
They're wasting my time.
Issues and Answers was hired by Allstate Insurance to do Quality Control surveys for their adjusters. They called to ask how the service was following a recent claim that I filed. It was a legit call that I was expecting, although I didn't expect the outfit to be called Issues and Answers, so at first I thought it was bogus. After listening to them, they clearly had info from Allstate about me and my claim, and they only asked legit questions about how the adjuster performed his job. So, in some cases, at least, they are legit. There was a long pause at the beginning of the call, though, and I almost hung up.
this number called 7-25-2011
Called on Sunday afternoon. Just jumbled noise in the background on the answering machine. I live in virginia.
Called my KY cell phone while traveling in AZ. Doesn't match the Oregon Health Dept. pattern.
I do not answer calls that I do not know who the number is. Hence it is a lost cause for them because I laugh evertime they call. I've been tempted to return their call late at night (between 2am and 3am) to ask them what they wanted. The temptation is getting harder to resist.
Received call from this number, heard background noise, I said hello and the party hung up.
Then I sugggest that anybody that has access to this number. Share her number with us and we can bombard her with phone calls. Say are from the department of
Please do not call unless I ask you to delete me from your list
Called at 10 am but did not leave message.
Left no Message
Reported as a DNC list violation.
Hangs up as soon as answering maching comes on.
don`t want this # calling
I have a "Do Not Call" number. Why are you calling a blocked number?
Rec'd call 3/7/11 asked Q/I questions about allstate. I answered NO to about 5 questions caller hung up. Caller was a female who sounded like she had a cold, alot of background noise.
to conduct a survey
its a survey
Rang my cell phone. Call went to voice mail. They must have put the call on hold because there were three minutes of a hold beep. No message. My cell phone is not "published." Quite an annoyance.
Called 3 times last night-after 9 PM-two "messages" were just beeps the third had a mans voice who started speaking before the recorder started but he said he will be calling me back. Not if I can help it....
Called numerous times. Stated calling for oregon health dept. I called the Oregon health dept. They are doing a survey. Silly to have it from an out of state survey group. I told them so.
Recevied a call from this Norfolk, VA Number. By process of deduciton, we believe the call to be associated with Identity theft from a Chinese women who resides in the Norfolk area and along with her associates conducts identity thieft. Earlier she and her Chinese associates hacked into our email account, when we recovered the email, then she tried to elicit our password from the account using a recognizable email address that we could trace, also she created a false myspace page in China with our name. We have documentation on this. We were hoping the Norfolk police would do something about this harassing and nusiance calls. We tried to talk with Nationline who distributes the number, but they were unwilling to help.
I keep getting calls from this number and they won't stop.
I have gotten 10 calls from them in just a few days.
They call me several times a day too.
No message, sometimes it's a real person, but sometimes it's an automated call.
I get calls from this number several times a day. They never leave a message when I don't pick up. I'm really getting tired of them.
Got this call on a weekend to my cell phone, and like many others, am on the Do Not Call list. No message left. This is getting really annoying, I've got several calls like this, not necessarily from the same people, but when I look up the number, I'm always directed to these sites. I wonder who's been selling my cell number.
I receive a call from this phone number that just does beeps over and over for about 5 minutes on the message machine. This is about the 20 + time they have called. Nobody responds if you try to talk to them for me.
Received two calls from this number but did not answer. How do you get the number blocked??
I am getting sick and tired of getting many phone calls on my cell phone from 757-769-7127. My phone is registered with the do not call registry but somehow they are getting through anyhow. They never leave a message but call in the late evening. Annoying!!!
called everyday for the past 5 days, last wednesday they called four times. I screen all my calls, they never left a message which I think is very rude. I was beginning to think I had a stalker, and was getting a little spooked with the last couple of calls. I was concerned enough to start searching the internet for a reverse directory then just entered the phone # and searched and found this site. Next time they call I am going to pick it up and give them 'some answers" they may not want to hear lol!
I live in OR and am tempted to call and complain to this person mentioned by OREGON Resident:
Any questions or information call Renee Boyd (971)673-1145 Public Health Division Portland,OR.
Got 2 calls around 7 pm on my cell. No message left. Don't know anybody in VA. I blocked number thru Verizon spam filter.
caller identified himself as a health care survey for our state. after way too many questions, much of them ones no one should answer, the topic turned to tobacco. I think this so-called survey is a ruse for the tobacco industry to direct their marketing
about a dozen calls in the last 3 weeks. i'm ignoring, but am getting pretty tired of this..............
Answered the phone. No one on line, a couple of clicks and then hung up.
I'm annoyed becauseI keep getting calls from this number and I'm on the Do Not Call list like others have posted here. If what people say is true that it's a survey then that's the issue because they may be exempt from the do not call list. I this listed on www.donotcall.gov
"Exempt Organizations include charities or certain non-profit organizations, organizations engaged in political solicitations or surveys, or Sellers or Telemarketers that call ONLY consumers with whom they have an established business relationship or from whom they have obtained the express written agreement to call."
So apparently do not call list is only for telemarketers that want to sell you something and if you do not already have a relationship with them (e.g. you bought something from them before or you agreed to let them contact you ... watch what you sign online or on paper).
Probably some political BS
Called and was extremely rude when I told them I don't want to participate in anything they had to offer. They kept me on the phone for quite some time.
Answered the phone. No one on line, a couple of clicks and then hung up.
This # called our home 2X within a 10-15 minute timeframe. Left no message. I did not pick up. We are on the do not call list and do not have any friends or relatives in VA.
Issues & Answers Marketing Survey. Got answering maching
I received 2 calls from this number (757-769-7127) One at 6:52 PM and one at 7:19 PM. First one was unanswered so answering machine would pick up, but unknown caller left no message. On 2nd call, wife answered after 2 rings, but after saying hello, no one answered or said anything. I am on every no call/no mail known but still continue receiving these calls from various people/organizations. Believe this one to be a telemarketer or someone conducting a survey, which I don't do. If I receive one more from this number, it will be reported to the state attorney general's office for appropriate action.
Called my cellular, I didn't answer, and s/he didn't leave a message.
some sort of market research firm. They called after 9pm. I told them as much, and that I didn't appreciate it. She apologized, and I hung up.
Issues and Answers, consumer survey's.
Called my home phone, was doing a survey on # of visits to downtown Norfolk VA. it was not apparent that it was a telemarketer, so i answered the phone. The person doing the survey was incredibly polite.
Called my cell phone every within every 48 hours, never leave the message. I called back the number and machine answering saying that they are with Global Market Research Network doing survey and to call 800-234-7783. I think everyone should be avoid with this numbers and contact FCC for more information.
Called my cell 3 times within 10 min. No msg left
Issues & Answers Network, a Global company attempting to contact "you", is the outgoing announcement.
I answered but didn't say anything. After about 5 seconds they hung up.
Called twice but never left a message
I've received multiple calls on my cell from this number. Never leaves a message! I won't answer because I don't know who it is!
This number called our house and said she worked the Oregon Department of Health and...I don't remember the rest. She asked how many adults lived in the house. She wanted to interview my husband who said he was not interested. She wished me a good evening and hung up. I wondered what a person in the 757 area code was doing representing themselves as working for the State of Oregon.
Has called repeatedly and has not left a message
Have called my work cell phone 4 times in 48 hours. No voicemail. Really annoying!
Called my cell around 6pm. Did not leave a voice mail. Called back and the message said it was an Issues & Answers survey, they left a # to call back if you have questions 1-800-234-7783.
called my CELL and left no message
He said he was calling to do a traffic survey, asked my age, where I lived and my cell phone number. he wanted to continue the call on my cell phone. i said no-if its a traffic survey why does he need my cell phone number?
Issues and answers called me at 8 pm on 7/14/10. Whats more amazing is that they were calling from Virginia a 3 hr time difference. Who carries out marketing research at 8 pm or 11 pm?
Have received calls from this caller for three years. Have blocked 8 of the numbers they use but they keep changing numbers. They always call saying they are looking for an Earl *****. Originally they were looking to collect on a lawsuit against this person, and proving to them that I am not this person seems to make no difference to them. Had my phone company contact them but they will not stop calling. Now they are calling themselves Issue and Answers doing a CDC survey. How many times to you have to say "no" before they get the message. They should have their phone service removed.
Just called me at 11:30 pm. Said it was something with Issues and Answers with Allstate. I said, it is awfully late to be calling, but if this number calls me again, I'm not going to be as nice next time!!!
Verizon Wireless has settled a lawsuit filed last month against Feature Films for Families, for illegally calling Verizon Wireless customers and employees to advertise the movie, 'The Velveteen Rabbit.' In addition to a permanent injunction preventing any future calls, the Utah-based telemarketer has agreed to a $25,000 cash settlement, which Verizon Wireless is donating to the National Domestic Violence Hotline (NDVH). The lawsuit alleged Feature Films for Families illegally used an autodialer to call Verizon Wireless customers about the movie. The lawsuit stated that over 10 days in early February, nearly 500,000 calls were made to Verizon Wireless customers and employees from the telephone number 917-210-4609.
No message left on my cell phone. Globel Research Networking, canned message, when I curiously answered.
I am on the No call List.
This number shows up on my phone between 9pm and 11pm and there is never a voice mail.
I received a missed call on my cell from this number. I don't answer phone calls from blocked or phone numbers I don't recognize but I am glad I decided to search above number on internet
I have been receiving calls from this number for a couple of weeks every other day. I never answer as a message is never left on my voicemail. I don't answer calls if I don't recognize the number. Finally, I decided to look at the area code (757) it was unfamiliar to me, and I have been receiving these calls on a steady basis.
called at 6:30 pm. i'm from new york i do not know. did not answer.
Called at 7:17 pm to my cell and left no message. I did not return the call.
they called me 2 time in 2 hours at 7 and 9pm. If they want to know about the health of people from Oregon, why the hell don't they call people from Oregon.
I had a 4 minute message on my voicemail of beep beep beep- just prior I had a block call hang up-not sure if related.

called 4-5 times in the past 2 days. Left no message
Have called and left no message 6 times in 10 minutes on both cell and home phone leaves no message and we have a Do Not Call Block on all our phones!!
I don't take calls from numbers I don't recognize. No i.d. cones up other than the number, and they never leave a message.
Called the number back (757-769-7127) and it said "Hello, you've reached Issues and Answers, a global marketing research firm". Recording goes on to say "if you received a call from us please be assured this is not a tele-marketing firm, nor an attempt to sell you anything. We are conducting a survey and want your opinion."
It's still unwelcome, in my book.
