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

stevedawson calls from 3 phone numbers:
After reading several of the comments posted, it makes me wonder if the caller may have had something I would actully want to purchase! Maybe we could be left messages such as, "We are calling to offer you a renewal on your current subscription; we will call you back at another time and can respond then if you are interested in participating in this promotion." Polite language and information is so helpful when consumers are trying to screen calls. I miss listening to quality, courtesy sales calls - the ones with the dead air time, not getting my name right, or pretending to be long lost friends are a clue I am wasting my time.
listen fools...if they dont call u to renew ur subscription,,,,then they got morons calling them complaining they didnt get their magazine,,,so answer, quit being cowards, and resolve it...this is like a site for the paranoid and retarded.
I am on the no-call list and don't want sales calls!
Hey, pays the bills. You're right. I do work for a living. But my job doesn't entail molesting people in their homes. And, yes, I do know the law. Guess what. The fact that it's legal doesn't make it less aggravating or more justifiable. What you do is force yourselves into people's houses without being invited. Having done business with a company isn't a blank check to pester them to death. If anything, a company that respects its customers isn't going to accost them repeatedly with bullshit advertising and junk calls from people with the IQ of a field mouse. But then, I guess you're not calling on behalf of a company that respects its customers, are you? The fact that you're not on welfare doesn't automatically justify an assault on people's privacy.
I finally picked up the phone after"unavailable" called every 10 minutes X 4: Guess they don't care if someone is recovering from surgery, and trying to rest. At least "Sue, from the AFLCIO" got to start her message before I hung up! I too am registered with the "DO NOT CALL" List which doesn't seem to work against these type of calls (including politicions who want me to know their opinion and want me to agree with them).
What? just trying to see what time of day people answer the phones? Yeah lets waste money doing that. That is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard. You people are morons.
This auto dialer calls us every day at all times of the day.We never answer, because they are just trying to see what time of day pople answer their phones.They just
called, and it is 9 pm!! Jerks. How do you stop an auto dialer?
dave krueger...wow what a mouth you have...but guess what? I have one too. You know funny thing is we work for a living just like you do. I work at Sturner & Klein & am very happy with the service we provide...If impolite lowlife assholes like yourself could pick up a fucking phone & politely say I am not interested, take me off your list then "oh goodness, us lowlifes(is how you put it)" would politely say, I am sorry for the incovenience & we would remove you off the fucking list. How dare you dictate what people are considered low lifes for the fucking jobs they do to support their families & pay their bills just like everyone else. At least we don't purposely sit on our fucking asses & collect welfare or unemployment like alot of lazy sons a bitches out there. Who the fuck are you anyway, God? Nice try, you have no right to judge anyone for who they are or what they do. So who's the lowlife now, you judgemental piece of shit. We are citizens just like you, so have some fucking respect for once in your life. Oh yeah & putting us below serial killers? There's a new one, If you believe morally that us calling to renew your subscription is worse than taking a weapon & murdering someone with it, than you have some real fucking issues you need to deal with pal. #1 We have no control as reps what numbers are dialed or how many times a day they are dialed (It's called an automated dialing system). We don't dial the fucking numbers manually #2 If you weren't such an impatient ass then give it a minute, sometimes there is a delay in when the phone is picked up by you, as to when the call comes through to us. #3 The do not call list as you have already heard, does not apply to companies who have a previous business relationship with their customers, however we would be more than happy to take you off our fucking list, so we never have to talk to fucks like you again. #4 Duh, Don't hang-up, say I'm not interested & hmmm guess what? you won't get another call...dumbass. #5 We do as we are suppose to do & abide by the law, which means we can't leave messages (ever thought about that?) #6 When does the dialer (not us personally) give up? It's simple! The lead we are calling (which is you) doesn't stop being called until there are so many attempts to the number & then it magically dissapears.(if you don't like it, save yourself some time & pick up the phone-we'll identify ourselves, & then you simply say "take me off your list or I am not interested" Easy as that people. So until you follow up on what the fuck your bitching about & learn the laws (as we have rights too) then shut up about it. It really isn't hard.
I've been receiving calls from this company repeatedly over the last few weeks - I have not spoken with anyone or had any messages left.
From what I've read on this site and others they are calling to renew magazine subscriptions.
I used the link from another post on this site to obtain contact information for this company. I called the number listed there - (301) 881-2720 - and asked them to remove my number. They took the information and stated that it would take about 24 hours to process. I did not encounter any problems. Only time will tell if it actually worked.
Caller ID: 208-327-1751
Caller: STURNER & KLEIN
Caller Type: Telemarketer
This is a magazine renewal call. The rules for DNC list don't apply here because technically you are a "customer" having already subscribed to a magazine. DNC is only to stop unsolicited calls for new customers. Sturner Klien is considered an "agent" of whatever publishing company wants you to renew so again the call is unfortunately legal. Best thing is to answer, tell them you don't want to renew and have them take you off of their mailing and calling list. Stinks that they call at ridiculous times, but it is the only way to make it stop.
Who is calling, if you are going to call and someone answers then say something for god sake or don't call at all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
As I suspected they did call again. This time I was here to answer the phone. They were calling about renewing a subscription to Consumer Reports. I informed them that it already had been renewed. They thanked me and said they would update their records.
Interesting that Consumer reports is a non-profit organization and depend on donations to fund their operation. They send out multiple mailings about donations, sweepstakes, subscriptions, etc.. Now they are hiring a telemarketer to bug people about subscriptions. Seems like an odd way to spend donated money.
Called several times in the past few days, no message ever left.
I wasn't near my phone when this came in and hey didn't leave a voice mail. My number is on the Do-Not-Call list so I ordinarily pick up on these calls so I can get enough information to file an FTC complaint. I've never done business with Sturner Klein. Hmmm, wonder how that would work if a complaint was filed about Sturner Klein (caller ID info) rather than the company they say they represent???? Guess I will have to wait to see if they call again. Oops, I think I just made a joke. Of course they will call again. Their making money off these annoying phone calls.
I WORK FOR S AND K AND AM EXTREMELY HAPPY TO HAVE A JOB.
I have had several calls from this number show up on my caller ID. Can't they be stopped. No one ever leaves a message.
Unknown scammer. They have called twice so far.
These jerks call every day. I don't answer. Today they called eight times (so far). That's not telemarketing. That's harassment. The DO-NOT-CALL list is a joke. Congress won't do anything to stop this because it would piss off the lobbyists. Being mere citizens, people like us don't matter. I pay to have a phone, but 95% of the calls I get are ones I don't want and these assholes are the worst. Below they say they are just trying to do their job when they call back after someone hangs up on them. Yeah, a serial killer just does his job, too. You guys are nature's lowest life form (right below serial killers). Get the message assholes! When someone hangs up, it's because they don't want what the fuck you're selling, you morons.
DO NOT WANT ANY MORE CALLS FROM THEM.
Called around 1:30 CST and didn't leave a message.
i had subscribed to a garden magazine which has been hounding subscribers to buy a "lifetime membership". They must be going broke imo. I have not renewed so I'll bet that is reason this spammer is hounding me. If I'm correct , a "prior business relationship" gives them an exception to the do not call regs. I hope the new congress revisits that law and tightens it up. worse are the calls that come thru without a number. you cant look them up or report them. That shouldn't be allowed. I have anonymous calls blocked but I suspect they set up their switchboards this way. I just tried to call the number above and got a recodrding that the number is out of service. It was working twenty minutes ago when they called me.
I subscribe to Kiplinger's Bottom Line Personal and have for a long time. Perhaps that's why Nova One/Stunrer Klein (305-327-1751) keeps calling me? Very annoying, as they never leave a message. I just called them back, took Option 1 to leave a message, and asked to be removed from their call list. Time will tell if it worked.
Don't give us any garbage about how pure and sweet Sturner Klein. A nice summer job? Do you enjoy being harassed all the time? Because that's what you do to us! And asking to be removed from the calling list doesn't work. I did that and two days later the calls began, again.
Do you really want us to stop being angry with you? There's a simply way to fix that: STOP CALLING!
Didn't recognize the number, didn't answer. No message left.
Never leaves a message, but calls a couple of times/week
Call during dinner (6:31p)... The caller ID showed: 'Sturner Klein' and the number: 208-327-1751.
No message left. I'm located in North Florida.
This company calls 5-6 times a week, VERY annoying. They will continue to talk to the VM until these idiots get tired of dialing.
We receive several calls from Sturner Klein every day. There is never anyone on the line and they never leave
a message. Who are they and why are they calling us?
frequent calls STURNER KLEIN if answer they hang up. we are on unlisted no.
They are calling here multiple times a day, I did a google search and found their corporate offices are in Maryland, here is their corporate number if anyone wishes to "RETURN THE PHONE CALL TO THEIR CORPORATE HEADQUARTERS"! (301) 881-2720
Got a call from "Idaho" on 12-15-2005 at 8:44 pm PST. 1-208-327-1751.. Very similar to the Ontario Calls I get also. I was not familiar with the number, so I did not answer and as soon and my message machine came on and it was THERE turn to talk,, NOTHING!!!
5th call in 3 days - no message. Called the number and got a recording: "We were calling about a subscription you have with us. No need to worry, we will try again"
Also we also do calls for inmates... so if you have an inmate thats all locked up it could be one of them trying to reach you...
YOU PEOPLE MAKE ME CRAZY... of course im talking abut you people leaving comments...if you called and left sturner and klien a message saying to take you off the list...you will need to call the magazine company cause we dont even know what magazine... and we never call you more than twice a day...unless you tell us your busy and then we call you back...your fault not ours..
AND REMEMBER IF YOU WANT THE CALLS TO STOP YOU MUST SAY EXACTLY " PLEAASE TAKE ME OFF YOU CALLING AND MAILING LIST"
if you do not want you phone number or address sold to other companies then when you call to order a magazine then you need to ask them who there mailing list gets givin to. Seriously people we are all just tryin to get back on our feet. im sorry you guys get so many calls but maybe you should answer the phone and say nicely " remove my number from the calling and mailing list". easy peasy! we call for many different magazines let me list a few
National geographics ,outdoor life magazine,lucky magazine.. get my picture we call for hundreds of magazines...
that website or phone number you called to get you takin off the national do not call list if you read the whole thing it does not apply to previous stuff... like if you subscribed to Lucky magazine last year, then this year we are still allowed to call you ask you if you would like to renew. please dont be mad at us just cause we are doing our job.
WE ARE NOT ALLOWED TO LEAVE VOISE MAILS...
if you do not want to call you any more say" remove my number from the calling and mailing list" its that simple.... we will call you back if you hang up on us BEFORE WE SAY ANYTHING. its our job!!! Obviously our economy has gone to sh** and nobody can find a nice job well sturner and klien provide hunders of people with jobs all over the vally.
I happen to work for sturner and klein..we are hired by the different magazines THAT YOU HAVE ALREADY SUBSCRIBED FOR. we call you to see if you would like to renew that membership.
Magazine Subscription Renewal
They just don't give up! They have been calling for weeks. Just don't answer.
They called at least three times in three days. They don't leave a message and we don't answer calls we don't recognise.
I called back, voicemail states it is Nova One. I left a message to be removed from their call list. I think it was for a subscription offer from Bottom Line Health magazine.
Called but left no message. I am on the DNC list.
Have received daily calls from sturner klein for well over 6 months. Same thing, no message...the worst was the 2:30 a.m.call that came in last night. I am even registered on the 'do not call list'.
Caller ID just says, "Idaho". With only that much to go on, I figured they were selling potatoes, you know? Just bought a 5# bag, so I'm set for now. You'd think caller ID could get a little more specific than just the state of origin, but who am I to question the technology of the phone company? Anywho, I never answer these calls but I always check this site to see who it was. This way I know who it is I'm ignoring... Turns out, they are calling for magazine subscription renewals. I guess they're concerned as to why I have somehow "overlooked" the 50,000 subsription renewal cards they've sent. Getting away from a magazine company is like trying to quit the mafia.
Got call @ 7:55 P.M. 8/19. Called back got recording saying customer service trying to contact us about subscription we already have. Could not make out company name, and can't think of any subscriptions that would be connected to Sturner Klein. Left msg & told them to remove us from their calling list.
They keep calling but leave no message.
Am calls every day of the week. As a night shift worker this is like a 2 AM call. No messages.
This number called at 4:40 EDT. Caller didn't even wait for voice messaging to kick in. I don't recognize the number and I have no friends in Idaho, so I didn't answer.
Calls 5x a day- PLEASE STOP! Sparks, NV
I've been getting calls from this number and the caller id says Sturner Klein....usually when I answer there is no one there but this time my husband answered and they asked for me by name. He said I was unavailable and the man said that he would call back at a more convenient time.
Please Please!! No more calls
Received a call from this company wanting me to renew my Smithsonian magazine. They were very polite and took "No" for an answer the first time.
This is a telemarketing company mainly renewing magazines etc. Complain complain complain or just ignore ignore ignore!
Calls everyday for the last two weeks! Insists on talking to the individual they have in mind and will not settle on a family member.
4 calls so far today, hang up each time without talking
Got at call at 7:55am in the freaking morning from these people, I asked who they were they wouldn't answer my question so seeing how it was in the morning I was still waking up I made a mistake and said that I was who I was and thats when they pounced, Considering I was still asleep she started to talk her jibberish when I heard her say Collection Agency I said "Fu@k this" and I hung up.
Annoying. Calls at children's bedtimes. Several times in the last week.
about 4 in the last month
I have had the name Sturner Klein show up on caller ID before but they never left a message. Tonight I answered and the recording said "Sorry we missed you", DUH I answered!...then gave another toll free number to call. Thinking I would get someone I could tell to take me off their list (I am on the DNC list) I called the toll free number and got yet another recording for what apparently is a singles match up. I am happily married & have no desire for such a place. I hung up and am sure more calls will be coming from them until such time an actual person comes on so I can tell them to stop calling.
They call my house EVER SINGLE MORNING at like 8 AM, and the message is always a recording of the same lady saying to call her back, but she never says why. I am assuming collections...
I actually just called and was able to leave a message and i stated do not call me again if you do you will be fined!
Have been calling twice a night. Called number back and it stated that it was Nova One, subscription or membership line. We are on a no call list as well.
They call every night. I finally answered and there was nobody on the line.
Multiple calls in last week. Am on Do Not Call list.
I get at least 5 calls a week based on my Caller ID. Tired of this company calling. From your comments loooks like telemarketer...but how is that possible on DNC list? They called today, Sunday at 4:00 pm. SUNDAY, REALLY?
message says we are merely calling about a subscription or membership. we will contact you again. company name unintelligible.
They asked to speak to Kenzie. I said it was a a wrong number and they hung up abruptly.
I have been getting calls from this number as well. The recorded voicemail message is hard to understand, no idea of the company name, and no idea of who they are calling for. There is more than one adult at my home, so I think this is a credit confidentiality problem when a company calls with idea who they want. As long as they don't give any more information, or send something in writing that clearly shows who they are trying to reach, no one at our house will be taking any calls from this company. I have worked for six large banks and know what collector's can and can't say, especially in a voice message.
Will not leave a message
Multiple calls each week. I do not pick up calls from unsolicited unknown callers. They never leave a message on our machine.
file a complaint with the FCC
no message left
I'm getting 'em too.

When I checked Caller-ID on my phone, this was a number that had called and not left a message. I do not answer any calls, unless I recognize who the caller is. I am on the Do Not Call List.
Called me up to say I owed BMG Music for CDs I had bought. He was a gentleman who a slight foreign accent and I couldn't understand the name of the company when he announced he was from them. When he got to asking me to pay I said I had no credit cards and even if I did I wouldn't give that information over the phone. They asked if I was going to pay over phone or if I didn't they would report debt to credit bureau. I said BMG never told me anything so how did they get "account".
They asked if a lived at a certain address and I said no I had never lived there. I said they have the wrong person and he continued to ask if I was willing to take care of it today. I told him he had the wrong person and hung up. He did not call back thankfully.
Calls at least once a day...never lets it ring, it just shows that i have a missed call
I am starting to get annoyed
Calls everyday. I do not answer. Called Id says Idaho.
1 call so far
Checked Caller ID but did not reply. Caller left no message
Thank goodness for this website, no name just number and no message
Magazine telerenewal service
Called Sturner Klein at (301)881-2720 on 02 MAR 2008 4:45 EDT left message with phone number and asked to be removed from any and all of their calling lists. We'll see if it has any effect.
My phone reads, 'unknown' when this person calls. However, I looked them up and they are called Takhar Collections or something similar to that. They supposedly work for BMG Music Company, however, BMG does not admit to associating with them.
If I say "hello" and no one answers the first time or answers only after a delay of several seconds, 99% of the time it is not someone I want to talk to. I hung up and I'm glad I didn't waste my time.
every day, sometimes twice a day for a few months at least. It comes in on a line at work that is almost exclusively telemarketers do I don't answer it, I let v/m pick it up, but they never leave a message.
This is telemarking number in Boise Idaho. It is for selling Bottom Line subscriptions to a health publication. They do not leave messages.
Prior to registering for the 'Do Not Call List', Sturner Klein called us at least 3 to 4 times weekly. Sometimes asking to talk to me, sometimes asking to talk to my husband...(One time they asked to talk to my cat...Oscar Madison, who had been dead over 7 years!) Now they're calling again! I received the latest call this morning and they asked if I was home. As usual, I said no, I'm sorry she isn't here right now. They asked when would be a good time to call back and I said after 7:00 PM this evening. If they call back, I think I'll take the call just to see who they are and what they want...If I find out anything, I'll post my findings.
Late evening calls are annoying, but we don't answer unless we recognize the caller. How can we make them stop?
I guess the Do Not Call Registry does not work..... no one pays attention to it.
There ought to be heavy penalties.....
several calls in the last few days...area code 208..no message left
Called my cell phone, no message. I thought it was illegal for telemarketers to call cell phones?
so annoying!!!! multiple hang ups.
Called and threaten to ruin my credit. Sorry buddy but my credits is already F*@k up you can't do much more damage it.
Pues si que no tienen nada que hacer porque yo recibo hasta 10 llamadas al dia y eso viene sucediendo desde hace tres dias.
I hv caller ID Sturner Klein
I dont answer but they never lv a msg. They call every wk.
Many calls received in 2008. Caller ID reads "Idaho". No message left. Am on DNC.
More telemarketing garbage either explicitly ignoring the DNC, or exploiting the DNC loopholes.
Ho hum! Same old, same old. We simply ignore those repetitive calls, using Caller ID as our screening device.
Just call and don't leave a message.
What is this all about? They call at all different times and do not leave a message.

Someone keeps calling from this number. They never leave a message. When I did answer the call there was a long pause and I couldn't understand the person on the other end.
I get a call from this number everyday. Usually around 7-9 PM. I picked it up once and no one was there.
get me off their list!
Sturner Klein at 1-208-327-1751 is out of Boise, Idaho and has called several late evening times over the last several days leaving no message. After googling Sturner Klein, it turns out they closed their offices in Flagstaff, AZ and are now down to two. They have another office in Rockville, MD.
It has an impressive client list, America Online being one of them.
It really kills my 3rd shift sleep patern. I hope his or her phone goes into telemarketing hell along with them attached to it. BASTARDS!
Called twice by Nova One
Sturner Klein on 1/9/08 at 8 pm.

I am in the process of speaking with my attorney regarding these calles from Nova one.

The calls have not stopped so now I will do what I have to do.
Sturner Klein-multiple calls
We are listed on a no call list and are receiving phone calls from this number

Called two times today--on my cell phone, and at least one previous occastion in the last week. No message.
More than 5 calls a day. Very annoying.
I called the number and got an answering machine or voicemail or whatever. I left a message requesting they never call me again. We'll see what happens.......
Ijust got a call from these morons. I didn't answer the call. As soon as the answering machine answered the call, they hung up. If they call again(and from the complaints here, I bet they do), I'll answer and see if I can get some information and report back here. Actually, I think I'll call their number and see what happens.
Called my cell phone. I did not answer, nor did they leave a message in my voice mail. I am on the DO NOT CALL LIST since 2004. I am not going to waste my minutes on any calls, not even voice mail!!!
They called 4 times in 12 days and left no message. When I called the number it rang as if it was a fax number.
Called - left no message - will wait for repeat call to mess with their minds and have a little fun with the humanoid on the other line.
The call came in at 9:48pm ....how did this call get through the "Do Not Call" list here in Pa.?

Got a call from 208-327-1751 which was Sturner Klein...they didn't respond when I answered.
Call Sturner Klein at (301)881-2720 and ask to have your number removed from any and all of their calling lists. The gentleman who answered the phone was very polite and said it would take a full day to remove the number from all of their servers.
Calls on behalf of Highlight for Children, only requests to speak to my wife then hangs up. Canceled Highlights. Like any other mag that calls or keeps sending me crap about renewing when still a year left on service. Sick of them, I cancel them.
I keep getting them also. P. from Spokane Washington

Calls come in about twice per week over the past few weeks.
No Message left.
There have been three calls in three days from a caller "Sturner Klein" We have been awakened for all three calls. How does one contact these bastards? If I find out who hired them that will be the end of that relationship! Do not Call apparently has been bribed because I am registered and still get the calls. No answer -- just wake us up and then hang up.
I answered a call from this # w/out looking at caller id. It was a telemarketer from Sports Illustrated (I currently have a subscription) who said "congratulations, you've qualified for a free gift -- a reprint of the very first SI issue" -- in addition, they were going to send me a preview of some book that I was to keep for 21 days without paying anything (as a preview). If I liked the book, I could keep it and they would bill me 3 x @ 19.95 (total of about $60). I told the woman no thanks for the book, but I look forward to the reprint of the first SI Issue. She said it doesn't work that way -- I had a bit of fun with her saying that it wasn't a free gift at all then, was it???? Final story: No book & No reprint of the first SI issue. Long story short: don't answer this number.
Repeat calls today for my husband-they pronounce his name wrong (is said Jaden). When I say he is not here they say they will call back or just say ok thank you.Since i was an Idaho area code and I have relatives in Idaho I was answering it but its clear its a solicitation.
Thus far - 1 call per day and leave no message.
3 calls, all hang ups
Called number back and left a message to remove my number. Ill let you know if they call back.
This is a person with an accent, maybe Indian, asking for my husband by a name he does not go by. Said no message and hung up.

Call Solutions buys 14th firm
The Business Journal of Milwaukee
Marketing and customer call service firm Call Solutions Inc. has purchased the Rockville, Md.-based direct marketing firm of Sturner & Klein Inc., adding 600 employees, Waukesha-based Call Solutions said Tuesday.
Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
Sturner & Klein is an outsourced direct-marketing business with clients that include America Online, Architectural Digest, The New Yorker, Fortune and Scientific America. Annual revenue is about $13 million, building Call Solutions' annual sales to about $70 million.
Sturner & Klein founder Jerry Sturner will continue to serve as president of the business. Sturner & Klein operates customer contact center operations in Boise, Idaho; Rockville, Md.; and Flagstaff, Ariz.
The transaction is the 14th acquisition for Call Solutions, which was founded in August 2000. The company provides market research, direct marketing and customer call center services.
Multiple calls from Sturner Klein 208-327-1751
Asked for me, I asked who was calling. She said Lori Nits for Yankee magazine
receive nightly calls from this number for about 3 weeks now - we don't pick up
Calls every day, multiple times. Never answer the phone. Never leaves a message. Very annoying.
They called a number which I have listed with the DNC registry, they gave me 1-800-877-5416 as their customer service line, where I spoke with Summer Scheithe at extension 22 who asked her supervisor, Jill Usinger, for more information as to how they acquired my name, home address, and phone number, and said they'd get back to me within a day.
The company is NOVO1.com
Sturner & Kline are a parent co. based out of Idaho. NOVO1's headquarters is in Waukesha , Wisconsin. F. Kevin Kasper, Corporate SVP, Market Development for NOVO 1, Inc., Phone: 262-827-6404
Maurice A. Barboza, Oveidio Communications for NOVO 1 Laurel, Phone: 703-299-0408
Mr. Roger Schriber is responsible for the do not call list. If you call 1-877-810-7173 you can get the operator to transfer you to his extension. You could always call 262-827-6404 Kevin Kasper, Corporate SVP, Market Development he will certainly make a point to take action if we all call him to death
S&K is owned by NovaOne. S&K can call you, legally, as often as they want as they aren't violating the DNC List as the companies that they are calling for YOU set up the business relationship previously either by doing something online, ordering a magazine subscription or purchasing books. The EASIEST thing to do is PICK UP THE PHONE and say "sorry, wrong number, have a nice day" and let them confirm that they did try to dial you and your number and just say "they haven't lived here for years, have a nice day."
A lot of their employees have trouble finding jobs to feed their families and/or are pregnant and can't do other jobs.
They are all good people just like you.
employee from AOL days
they keep calling no msg
Caller ID: Unknown name 208-327-1751 7:18 p.m. 10-26-2007
Caller ID: Unknown name 208-327-1751 11:19 a.m. 10-27-2007
I'm on the DO NOT CALL but keep getting calls from this number, but why? all they do is hang up 1/2 the time anyway. Can't someone stop them?
I am so sick of these phone calls. I even get phone calls for people who don't even live at my house.
Calls, but nobody talks.
Called here in VA again. No mesage of course
8 calls in 2 days to our cell phone ... we never answered and no message was left.
Calls started two days ago and calls twice a day with no message
I receive at least 3 calls a week from this number. The caller I.D. lists caller as Klein Sturner. Like many other people,I screen calls and if I don't recognize the number I let the answering machine get it. They NEVER leave a message. If someone really wants to talk to me you'd think they would leave a message!! I am also on a Do Not Call list, but these annoying calls persist. I live in Manchester, NH
Calls from Sturner Klein around 7pm, two or three times this week. No message and will not talk to anyone in house but me. I am on the dnc list.
Recieve calls at least 2 times a week. I NEVER had AOL and I don't have any magazine subscriptions. I am on the Do Not Call List.
Did not answer b/c I didn't recognize the number. No message left.
So I thought I would let everyone know how sterner and klein works... along with other phone sells companies. If you let it go to voice mail everytime. It will automatically call you back, for up to every two hours. If you answer, but say your not there, they will call back. If you answer and say im not interested. they will call back for a different product. But if you answer and say please take me off your calling list. they will never call you again. just listen to the do not call list conformation!!!!
I get a call from Sturner and Klein 3X a day during awful hours. I answer and no one is there, they won't leave messages if I don't answer. I finally called it back and it is just a computer saying "don't worry we'll call you back" You can not opt out of the menu to talk to someone. VERY ANNOYING!
208 327 1751
Sturner Klein or Out of Area ... I've been getting calls sometimes 3-4 per day, no messages left.
After reading the latest comments here, I suspect the problem is Highlights for Children. Perhaps we are due for renewal. I dislike being beaten over the head, however, so we won't renew.
I called the Sturner Klein office number, (301) 881-2720, and asked to be dropped from the list. The man I spoke with was polite about it. We'll see if the calls stop.
Left no message
Nightly calls, no messages
Caller ID says:Sturner Klein
Try and stop the calls. We have all your numbers
Caller ID said it was from Boise, Idaho. Left no message just idiot operator kept calling out our name after getting the voice message.
4 Calls (and counting) October 1.
No name, just phone number, almost daily. Do not answer or better yet, answer then ask then to wait a minute, lay down the phone and walk off.
Multiple calls from Sturner Klein in the past week. Last night they called 10 min after 9PM, which they are not supposed to do. I am going to answer next time and tell them to take me off their list. Then if they call again, I can report them and they will be fined.
This company would call my home everyday and not leave a message. Finally I answered. They wanted to talk to my 10 year old daughter about her Highlights magazine subscription! I told them to remove us from their lists and not to call back and they haven't.
Do not know who these people are, and do not want to receive calls from them again! We are on the No Call List!!!
Several calls over the last month.
They have called my home at 7:30 pm for the past five days and leave no message.
My caller ID says "Nova One". They call daily in the evening. We do not use our land line for anything but DSL, so we don't answer.
Returned from vacation and had two calls from this number on called ID. Guess it's National Geographic again. They don't seem to understand that if I had wanted to read their maga-zine, I'd subscribe to it without being hounded. Is there any way to sue these people yourself? I've reported numbers over and over to the DNC and never hear anything, and the calls don't stop.
telemarketer for national geographic.
They called once, I read below that they're connected to Cook's Illustrated - a wonderful magazine, but they have email spam issues as well - too bad.
I have received 3 calls from Klein Sturner in 3 days. Portland, Oregon

Knew my name-his was Jim-renewing Yankee Mag. Said No and hungup
get these jackasses to quit calling me
The DO NOT CALL LIST has exceptions these includes companies contacting their former and current customers and nonprofit organizations.
The way a call center works is that you have a bunch of reps on computers using automatic dialers. After a call is placed the rep has to disposition the call on the computer.
If the call is a sale then the rep dispositions it as a “1” and fills out the appropriate information and the number is taken out of the system.
Telemarketers do not leave messages so if the answering machine comes on the rep dispositions it as a “90” and the number is put back into the system.
Calls for which the customer is unavailable or hangs up early the rep dispositions it as a “30” and the number is put back into the system.
In other words the most effective way to get them to stop calling is to pick up answer and then let them go through their entire speech. After they finished you can tell them no thank you and/or tell them to put you on the S&K’s internal no call list.
Of course this system is not perfect. Each rep will go through more than 300 calls in a five hour period. Because of this there are instances that in which the rep will disposition the call incorrectly. This is why some of you may have received calls even when you said no.
1. THE DO NOT CALL LIST DOES NOT APPLY IN THIS INSTANCE!
2. YOU WILL GET A CALL BACK IF YOU LET IT GO TO THE ANSWERING MACHINE
3. YOU WILL GET A CALL BACK IF YOU HANG UP EARLY
I continue to receive calls from this number 3-5 times a day. I'm on the DNC list. But it seems useless!!
Several calls in the last few weeks. No message left.
twice a day for about 2 weeks, never answer, shows as Sturner Klein
On 08/06/2007, the person who talked to me said she was calling for the Smithsonian. We used to be Smithsonian members. We have had many phone calls from this number in the past, though, and I didn't answer (after the first few times) and no one left a message.
hey guys -
I called the main number ( see link below) and the individual who answered the phone was very cooperative. He took my home number (the one they've been calling) and said the calls will stop in a few days for a couple years.
I suggest calling them.
it is spam
Because the people who hire Sturner & Klein to call for them use their customer lists, they can get around the DNC list. It doesn't matter if you're on the list or not because you're a previous customer of the person they're calling to represent. The only way to get them to stop calling is to pick up the phone and ask them to take you off the list. Just make sure that you're the person they're asking for or they won't take you off the list.
Multiple calls almost daily for the last several weeks from "Unknown name, Unknown number" or Klein Steiner
I answered this today after seeing it on my work phone 3 to 4 times a day!
I did not identify myself, just said "Answering Service" They said they were from the Children's Highlights magazine. I told them this was a business DO NOT CALL BACK!

4 Calls 7/5/07
keep calling everyday but leave no message!
I have been receiving 1 to 2 calls daily for the past few months. After reading the postings here, I believe it must be because of magazine subscriptions I used to receive. I wish there was a way to stop the calls. When I answer the phone, no one is there. Hopefully this will be resolved soon!
They call me 2 times per day. I just signed up on the do not call registry today. It's free and they have a page where you can report those who violate it.
We've started getting these calls. No message. Some creepy whackado with an autodialer?

Washington PA - Phone messages began 4 days ago and into the weekend.

We have received numerous calls from this number in the last week. They never leave a message and we do not answer calls from anyone we don't know. If someone wants to talk to us they'll leave a message!

They called and left no message on 4-21-2007
Called me 2 times a day (morning&afternoon) for the past 2 weeks! Annoying!
Sterner and Klein has the right to call people that are on the DNC list because you guys where with the magazine that they are calling to renew at one point and they are just calling to see if you want to renew it! You are the one that got the magazine!
I have worked for Sturner and Klein personally from this number and most of the business they do is with magazine renewals so if you do get a call from them and do not want to continue your magazine membership just go ahead and tell them you no longer are interested in continuing there is no real need to be pushy... if the telemarkerter is well trained they will put you in the computer as a no sale and immediatly delete you from their automatic caller.
8 calls in 6 days;
Caller ID shows: Sturner Klein
Sales people have got to be the worst people on earth. This is a telemarketing organization who has no respect for the privacy of an individual. Block the number if u can, dont'answer the call and if u do, take a name and expressly tell them to remove ur name from their mailing list "immediately"! Get mad if u need to 'cause they rely on ur manners in order to be pushy. Don't take it from them!
Idaho,208-872-2348,They call frequently and hang up even if we answer. Our # is listed on do not call
constant daily or multiple x's a day calls for about 10 days....... so annoying, but i will not pick it up... its like a computer calls and it consistantly hangs up after a set number of minutes.
its funny, that i actually let it bother me some days... but its unhealthy and it creates a distrustful society. there is enough junkmail and spam out there. cant wait to figure out how to block this number
3rd call this morning and i have only been here 2.5 hours. i have received appx. 3 calls per day for 2 weeks. i have answered and no one is ever there.
8:28pm, i just picked up the phone and hung up.

Wanted to sell a subscription to National Geographic 2nd call in two weeks
cid displays boise,id calls received as late as 9:25 pm & multiple times a day. I'm on do not call list & was under the impression that telemarketers were not to call after 8 pm. how do u get them to stop? They even call my cell phone that has the DNC request also.
Got a call from Sturner Klein here in connecticut - did not pick up - no message was left oh well :)

Daily, 2 to 3 times a day.
I have caller ID, and have taken to picking up the phone, and setting it back down. W/O talking, maybe they will stop.
I also don't answer those I don't know.
After reading this, I think they will continue.
Thanks for this website!

Did not answer because name & number unfamilar. Have received 2 calls from this number about 1 wk apart. No message left.
They have called at least 8 times in the last three weeks at all hours of the day but never leave any message.
What do you want
I never give out my phone number to anyone and these people somehow got it (its unlisted also) calling to renew one of my mag subscriptions ~ even registered with the DNC ~ this is madness
stuner and klein is not a telemarketing company, in a way yes. ill explain. we called people for the employer who hired us to call there custmors for them. witch means that if u had susscription with a mag and it ended or about to end we call u and see if u like to resign back up. witch means that senice u were a custmor with a certian magiazine,they can call u if ur susscription ended, this does not violate the DNC list. now they use to work with aol but does not anymore, they go with what ever company contract with them. witch can be almost anytyhing from macy's to magzines, but in the end u were a custmor with the company they are calling for. so answer the phone when they call, find out what it is, why and if u dont want to tell them no and please put me on the DNC list. now if they call back when u asked them not to then that repasenative did not end that call correctley thats why u should always get the name of who is calling before they proceed because belive it or not, if ur rude with them, just hang up, or do not say dont call us back, they will call back agian at some point. so be nice its a job and it pays good to some people, everyone has to work and do something to make a living, so just say no thank u and put me on the do not call list. and no we do not leave msg because its involes account info sometimes and takes to long to leave msg's. hope this gives u some insight to stuner and klein.:)
a family member finally answered phone; refused to leave a message after asking for me by name
That # comes up on my caller id every day, but never a message on the machine.
they call and we dont answer becasue we use the answering machine to screen calls of numbers on CID that we dont recongnize. they must not know how to read the DNC list as we have been on it since it first came out.
Daily calls for several months; no messages
This number was Out of Area on the CID on Sat 3/17 at 2:52 pm no message left.
They call constantly and leave no message.
208-327-1751 came up on my caller ID at 7:49pm EST. I've gotten periodic call for the past few weeks from this number. If I answer, there is never anyone on the other end. I've seen them listed as a telemarketing company for magazines.
Why would a telemarketer leave a message? The reason that know one is there half the time is because they are on a predictive dialer. So when the machine dials your #, it may reach an agent before the agent is actually ready for the call. FYI, if you get a magazine, and Sturner and Klein works on behalf of that magazine, they are allowed to call you, even if you are on the DNC list. Past business relationship allows them to do that. But when they call, you can then ask to be removed and they are required to do so.
Two calls on two consecutive nights. Did not leave message either time. Caller Id showed Sterner Klein
I've received several calls from a Sterner Klein from Idaho. I do not pick it up because I do not knw anyone at all from Idaho. No message is left.
I want to know who is calling!
STURNER KLEIN (208) 327-1751
Someone from that number has called several times, but has not left a message.
They are an agency who contracts from magazine companies to remind subscribers to renew. They only call if you had a subscription that lapsed - they are NOT trying to sell you anything new. I worked for them many years ago and they strive for good customer service. If you answer and tell them you are not interested, they won't hound you.
Lets try this again, it did not take the last time
Everone who has been called by this company should file a complaint at
If everyone does this, maybe they will get fined.
I'm on the "NO CALL" list, but it really must not mean too much when this "Sturner Klein" can't be stopped! For what it's worth I'm going to report then again!!!
Called twice in one day
Just had first call from Klein Sturner. I'm in Ga. and on do-not-call-list.
Sturner Klein - 208 327 1751
Caller ID...didn't pick up...no message...
got a call from Sturner Klein today February 17, 2007, from a "Ryan" who laughed --embarrased-- when I suggested he could talk to me without necessarily reading straight from the script. Call was to renew a Christian Science Monitor subscription from many many years ago . . . thank you Comcast for including the caller ID in your cable phone service. If I do want to renew it won't be through this outfit. Better directly through the newspaper. My five cents' worth . . . as floating credit card numbers also mean they can renew without your consent, which has happenedto me too often in these "special" deals from third-party marketers.
Number shows up as
2 calls in one week, unable to answer phone both times.
Called twice in the last week or so. They ask for a family member. When they are told he's not here, would they like to leave a message they say "NO, they will try back at another time."
they have called every day, for months - finally answered, and they asked for my sister, who has never had this number - now I understand from this site that it is probably a magazine, from a gift subscription I gave her. I asked them to take my number off their list (and I am also on all Do Not Call Lists)so we'll see!
Called asking for my mom. pronounced name wrong so obviously telemarketer like everyone says
they called me about a magazine subscription( ww)
They call but leave no message. I don't know anybody in Idaho! But they don't show up in my caller id.
daily calls for 2 weeks - no messages left.
called twice, left no messages. Caller ID listed the Idaho caller as kline sturner. If AOL is part of this scam, stop it!!!!
We have received many calls from 208-327-1751 and I did some research and they are a telemarketing firm in MD and ID that specializes in magazine subscriptions. If you have ever subscribed to any magazine this company gets your name and phone number and will call until you renew or subscribe. The no message thing is the automated service, it calls and calls and if you pick up it sends you to the next available agent. I need to get one of these and reverse the trend...
called three times this mornign
Calls from Sturner Klein every day. I live in Wisconsin. No message is left. Hangs up before the voice mail is activated.
Calls from Sturner Klein every day.
They are calling me too many times, too - and I thought it might have been a law firm - ha! So glad for this site. I'm on a Do Not Call List - I'll have to give them an earful if they ever catch me at home. Very annoying, indeed. Leave a friggin' message with a call back number, and I'll tell you whether I'm interested or not!
CallS at least once a week
Dont know the number or where it comes from.

Keep calling for my daughter - won't leave message
Annoying, I cannot stand phone solicitations!
5 calls from Sturner Klein in past 2 weeks
Now that we know who they are, we're planning to answer their next call, find out what magazine they want us to renew, then send the magazine's publisher an e-mail saying we won't subscribe to any publication that uses this service. Strongly suggest you do it, too.
The best thing that can be done about getting these people to stop calling is to answer your phone. After contact has been established, ask to be removed from their calling list. Removal from their calling list is almost always immediate.Usually, the call is in reference to a subscription that is about to expire or has expired. The 'do not call list' does not apply to a company or contracted firm for a company trying to reach an individual who has or had a prior business relationship with the caller with in the last 18 months. If the caller has the wrong number, the number (often) was furnished by directory assistance, i.e. you are receiving calls for someone you don't know and your assigned phone number is relatively new. That could be the person who had the number at one time.
Received two calls from Sturner,Klein on 1/25/07,one at 1:00 pm and another at 8:00 pm.and I am on the do not call list,how did they get our number?
These people call us every single day and its really hard because we have a baby who really needs some sleep! Its really ridiculous and I am already on the do not call list!
Called 2 times in 2 days.
My call was from a telemarketer for national geographic. They wanted to tell me about blah,blah,blah etc.
Harrasment, plain & simple. I hope all you telemarketers get carple tunnel syndrome.
Received several calls but they never leave a message. Caller ID shows Sturner Klein (208)327-1751. Last call occured on 1/22/07 at 7:11 PM.
Two calls (1/17 & 1/18) We did not pick up phone because we don't answer unless we know who caller is. We are on Do Not Call List & we don't want these calls.

I have the feeling these people are huge, smart and get complaints filed and sued all the time. After some research I discovered they know all the loopholes and are probably well-known to the FTC and FCC as well. Probably the best thing to do is get Call Reject and keep rejecting each number you see that comes up. Obviously the other avenues of complaint haven't worked probably because that's their business. Until Congress decides to get tough on these outfits and put them out of business, Call Reject is probably the only solution.
i'm in area code 510, and got 2 calls in the last two days. caller id reads Sturner Klein. both calls around 8pm. no message left either time.
We get calls from this number every other day. We answered one time and they asked for someone we don't know. I just added it to our blocked number list.
2 calls in 3 days...no messages. Caller ID displays "Nova One"
They called on 1-13-07 and many times before. Same story: no message, no one on line, Sturner klein on CID. Traced to Franklin road address Boise, ID Home phone is 208-327-1700. I think we all should call this number when ever they call us. Ha!

Received 3 calls per day for the last month. They even called this past Sunday. Enough is enough!!!
Same as everyone else here, Sturner Klein keeps calling, every other day or so, for about 3 weeks. They never leave a message, and if you answer, there is no one there! How annoying.
Multiple calls from Sturner Klein a telemarketing firm. They call every few days but don't leave a message. I am on the DNC list so why do they continue to call?

Just do a Google search for Sturner Klein . . you will get this address: goliath.ecnext.com
It will show their "company profile". . . definitely "telemarketers" and not for AOL!
I called their main corp. number at (301) 881-2720, and got a courteous promise to put me on their do-not-call list. They seemed unaware of the autodialer problem, and I told them about this page so they can see the issue is a real and widely reported one and will hopefully look into it.
Our call was on 12/17/6 at 2:22 p.m.
12/19 8:03 PM Unknown Name
12/16 2:33 PM Unknown Name

Sturner & Klein
7285 W Franklin Rd

I suppose we could write them and ask them to get lost.
woke me up! Didnt answer. no message. number checks somewhere in Idaho.
Received calls at approximately 11 & 1 multiple days in a row. No message. It's a real nuisance.
Caller ID said Nova One. First call from them today, 12-14-2006
1 call daily, after 8pm...caller ID says "Sturner Klein 208-327-1751"
STURNER KLEIN has called several times in the past few days - never a message - similar experience to others posted here. When I determine the name of STURNER KLEIN's customer, I will NEVER purchase from that firm again.
2 calls in 2 days
While this telemarketing firm does much of its calling from Boise, it is headquarters is at 11900 Parklawn Drive. Rockville, MD 20852. Phone: (301) 881-2720 and the fax is (301)881-3745. You might want to give a call to Jerry Sturner since he seems to love the phone so much.
A phone call each of the last several days
Received one call each day for the last three days with no message left.
Rec'd calls during the day, twice last week. Rec'd calls Tues and Wed of this week. I picked up the call but they took too long to respond. As I was hanging up I could hear a young lady asking to speak with "a" Dawn. I hate when they start with "a" like they don't know who they are calling! I will pick up the next time and ask them to quit calling. Oddly, this is the only marketing call that I've rec'd in months? Wonder why they're bugging me now?
Get frequent calls, both day, evening and weekend from this number, caller ID shows Sturner Klein. We do not answer and do not have an answering machine. Last call was Saturday 11:33AM
Received another call from Sturner and Klein and this time there was a person on the other end selling magazines.
No message left but when call answered wanted to update Credit card.2calls in 2 days.
No Identification except the telephone number
Received call 11/26 and caller I.D. said Sturner and Klein but no message left. Also received a call from 928-774-6704 on 11/22 from Sturner and Klein with no message left. This is in Flagstaff, AZ.
STURNER KLEIN. I get a call from them every evening. No messages are left.
Received two calls within minutes of each other; first one CID displayed number and second as unknown caller. A message began in both instances, but stopped abruptly as if their dialing system lacks the sophistication to begin the message after the welcome tone.
I will tell them to stop, if have the chance.
Continue getting calls and kept keeping track. Got another call today and I want them to stop. I'm on a "do not call list" which I guess means nothing.
Asked for someone not at this number, said they would update their records. Thanks to this site for telemarketing call info. Will never answer when they call again.
2083271751- Sturner, Klein
Nov. 18 2006. 10:06 AM. Just says Out of Area...
I have this number 208-327-1751 Found out what its is I also found the address of the company in Boise Idaho. They are a telemarketing company out of Boise, ID and others states. The address for them in Boise is 7285 West Frakling Rd, Boise, ID. I had to kinda snoop to get this information. Better thing to do is report them to the Federal Trade Commission at www.ftc.gov if you have more then three calls in one day, that would catch there Eyes and say they are harrasing. Just remember us this information wisely. (208) 327-1700 This number is not a private this is there local number. You can also see about giving them a call and asked to be put on there do not call list.
Called many times before. Called again Nov. 14 and 15, 2006. Again left no message on answering machine.
For the last month almost 2 times a day sick of them will answer next time and tell them we do not want anything take me off your list. 11-14-06

Sturner Klein comes up on caller ID, but it is the National Geographic Society. They claim they are calling about a gift certificate you sent last year, even though you deny it and state you are on the national do not call registery, they still harass you. File a complaint with the national do not call registery at www.donotcall.gov, you can register your home, office and cell phones and if you do get solicitation calls, file the complaints, they begin to stop calling within a month.
8 calls in the last week. Leave no messages. Great info. My caller ID has "reject" on it so they'll need to try a new trick after today. My reject device leaves them a message saying I'm not accepting your call and hangs up. HA HA
2 calls to answering machine leaving no message.
Wife reports 3-4 nights in a row, consistently between 8:55-9:00pm CT. We have not answered, probably will the next time they call. Sounds like this may be a magazine we already subscribe to, unfortunately... Perhaps not for much longer.
They just tried calling here, left no message. I called back and did the "press 1 to leave a msg" thing. Informed them am on both state and federal do not call list, so DO NOT CALL AGAIN!
Thanks to here, found out was 'cause used aol free trial thing. So, continued msg with "if this is about trying to get me to sign back up with aol, dont bother. I signed up for their free trial thing, cancelled during the free trial, and 3 months later they starting fraudulently billing me, so no way in hell am I going to sign back up for aol!"
A thank you to admin for this place so can find out who these people are and a thank you to every that has posted regarding who this particular number is. :)
phone rang but silence at the other end.then a hang up
Recieved 2 calls daily for the last 10 days. Call and leave no message
These folks have called my number at least 12 times in the last week. No messages left.
I did answer the call the first two times, and asked them to take me off the list they are using, but they keep calling.
Sturner Klein, two calls in as many days. I see by the map, this guy cant be good for anyone. 82401 zip
got a call from sturner klein 208-327-1751 on 10/21/006
At S&K, agents get a bonus based on their 'call completion stats'. Calls logged as sales count toward the bonus. Calls logged as 'no sale' (which includes 'do not call', etc) count against the bonus. Calls logged as 'unable to reach' don't count either way, and the number goes back in the queue.
Thus, it is tempting for unethical agents to log a call as a 'unable' when it's actually a 'no sale'.
1 to 2 calls a day over the past 2 weeks.
The only thing that shows up on CID is Boise, Idaho. I refuse to answer it, but they have called at least every other day for about the last 2 weeks. I think it's time to answer it and give them an earful.
Yeah, annoying the bejeebers out of potential customers--that's a *great* way to do business. When are telemarketers ever going to learn that?
This number calls everyday, never leaves a message. It is getting real annoying.
They called left message as if they think talking to someone then stops.
Actually have called me many times before this - several times per day...
CID just says Boise, ID
6 calls in 6 days
I want them to stop!
Call on 10/11/2006 at 8:45pm from STURNER KLEIN- we have no idea who this is but the call about once a week.
typical machine caller, all operators busy, so there is no one there.
Called at 7:53pm. Caller ID said, "UNKNOWN NAME". No message left
I recieve two calls daily. One around 11:30 am MST and one around 1:30 pm. They never leave a message and they show on caller ID as Sturner Klein. How do I stop them clogging up my Caller ID?
208-327-1751 - this time comes in as Unknown, but has come in as Sturner Klein before. Each time I register a complaint with the DNS site, but so far it's not helping much. I answer and immediately hang up since you won't get anyone to talk to.
both times no one said anything.
Simple says Idaho
answered phone and it was aol. they kept trying to get us to sign up for their "free" service. Finally hung up on them because they didn't get the hint that I'm not interested.
Different times of the day, once a day, persisting for the past week.
Calls almost daily. No message.
Had aol and cancelled it. we are on the do not call list. I've gotten 2 calls and there are no messages....
They have called our number probably about 8 - 10 times over the last week to 10 days. They will call during the day and in the evening, we haven't answered the calls as we do not answer calls from people we do not know. Their number shows on our caller ID, and they will not leave a message on our recorder.
Multiple Sturner Klein calls. - Idaho

Sturner Klein has called 6 times in about two weeks. They apparantly are calling to get me to renew Consumers Reports.
Call received in Illinois from this number at about 9:15 PM. Bastards.
MULTIPLE CALLS, ONCE PER DAY FOR THREE DAYS

I receive a call from this number on a nightly basis, the latest 9/8/6. I have also received calls from "Sturner & Klein" with a phone number: 301-881-7221.
This is a telemarketer from Sturner and Klein, hired by AOL (and other cos.)to get their customers/or previous customers buying their products. They called 3 X in a row, once with 208 # and twice with out of area number. I do not have AOL anymore. I am on the DO NOT CAll registry. This is how cos. are getting are it!!
2006 Sept 5
1 call per day for last 2 weeks
Sturner Klein calls about every 3 days. The last call was on 2006-08-31. I have never answered because I'm so TIRED of telemarketers. Who are they?
"out of area" on Caller ID. I picked up and they asked for me by name, but pronounced it wrong. I called back to see who they were, and their answering machine message identifies them as "Nova One". Haven't found out who "Nova One" is yet.
Number only on caller i.d.
Saturday August 26, 2006@ 2:16 pm.
Call from STURNER KLEIN occur every once in a while. This one was on Saturday 8/26/2006 @ 1520.
Caller ID "Sturner Klein" -- called to renew my Scientific American after I had let renewal envelopes pile up in my "to do" stack too long (I did renew) (but I -- hypocritically in this case -- do not recommend giving credit card number when you are the called party; better the other way around). Personally, I appreciate a call like this having a Caller ID and a real number I can look up. I'm on Do Not Call, but this was exempt since I was a recent subscriber; and they didn't attempt any add-on solicitations of other mags or anything.
2 calls in 2 days from Sturner Klein, no message left but now I understand why.
continue to recieve calls from this nubmer on a daily basis 8/18/06 was last call. out of area is the id on caller id
they are a telemarketer for AOL, Cooks Illustrated and other mags. I talked to the Idaho office and explained that they are having issues with the autodialer- that it doesn't connect so you can talk to someone (to tell them no thank you). as far as not leaving a message... a telemarketer firm wants to talk to you, the only way to get them to stop calling is to pick up the phone then ask them to remove your name from their list. if they continue to call after that call the fed's because they are now in violation of the do not call (which has way to many clauses to allow for telemarketers- read it sometime) and can get a $1000 fine for each call made in violation.
2 calls in past 3 days. No messages eft.
The CID shows Sturner Klien called 6 times in the last 3 weeks. The calls have come in between 1:06pm and 7:15pm and they never leave a message. We don't answer calls from anyone that we're not familiar with. I think that the Government needs to impose heavier sanctions and monetary penalties on companys that violate the DNC list. There appears to be no other way to get their attention and stop this annoying conduct.
They keep calling but leave no message.
4 calls in 8 days
