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.

February 4th, 2014 S. Miller OR

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.

February 4th, 2014 TomO NY

Another card holder services call!@#$@#$%%$^!

January 31st, 2014 Petition MN

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.


The text:

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.

January 30th, 2014 Concerned FL

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.

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."

December 20th, 2013 Nick CA

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.

December 19th, 2013 Jake SC

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??

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".

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.

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 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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

February 6th, 2013 Dana W. TX

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.

January 29th, 2013 M CO

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.

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

August 10th, 2012 rubin MT

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.

August 10th, 2012 Tom MO

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.

August 10th, 2012 Tom MO

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.

May 18th, 2012 Morgan CT

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.

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 anon09176@live.com if you have questions/concerns.on this, I have a lot more information regarding this.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

January 19th, 2012 Mister M. CA

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.

January 18th, 2012 bobby MA

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.

Presumably you can have your number removed from their list. I will try it tomorrow and see.

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.

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.

March 2nd, 2011 Chicago Ed NY

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.

March 1st, 2011 PGS

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....

February 23rd, 2011 SPS

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.

February 22nd, 2011 Ted

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.

February 18th, 2011 Audrey CA

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.

February 17th, 2011 Jean OR

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.

February 12th, 2011 LaMusica MI

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.

February 4th, 2011 Matt OR

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.

January 15th, 2011 Teresa CA

Received two calls from this number but did not answer. How do you get the number blocked??

January 12th, 2011 Sherry SC

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!!!

December 31st, 2010 MK WA

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.

December 8th, 2010 JP

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.

December 8th, 2010 Elle

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

November 23rd, 2010 LW

about a dozen calls in the last 3 weeks. i'm ignoring, but am getting pretty tired of this..............

November 18th, 2010 Claudio

Answered the phone. No one on line, a couple of clicks and then hung up.

November 10th, 2010 Harriet NY

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).

October 28th, 2010 Kim UT

Probably some political BS

October 21st, 2010 irritated CA

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.

Issues & Answers Marketing Survey. Got answering maching

September 29th, 2010 Ronnie

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.

September 28th, 2010 E NE

September 23rd, 2010 J OR

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.

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.

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?

July 15th, 2010 s AZ

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?

July 14th, 2010 Rich OR

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.

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.

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

May 20th, 2010 Laurel TX

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.

March 5th, 2010 C.L. MD

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.
