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.

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

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
