K&R Research called while I was painting the house. Annoying. I called the number back (since they didn't leave a message). A nice lady answered (she said, "K&R Research, can I help you?". I told her someone called me just now, whilst I was painting. She said she didn't know which agent called me, because they have "150 agents." So I asked, "Can you tell what this call was regarding?" She said, "We're a survey company. One of our agents must have called you to take a survey, but they do it randomly, so I don't know who called you." She was very pleasant and nice. But I WANTED to take the survey IF it was paid. She said she didn't know if it was paid or not. Ugh. I'm so sick of these types of calls! If it were a real paid survey, they would have left a damn message !

I'd actually rather hear from a surveyer ANY DAY than a telemarketer or one of those FAKE bill collectors who picks names out of the phone book as they go. Work has been slow at the studio lately so mebbe I will try to catch your next call and direct it up to the video office, I could stand a cute chubby chick to talk to once in a while. It isn't easy being a Nerd, you know. See ya later.

August 4th, 2011 asterisk ID

Sorry "Employee", I keep missing your call, I don't hear the phone ring, because you dial into our PBX system, however, when I am bored, I peruse the call logs and see you have called, but alas, I have missed your call. You are supposed to know the Extension of the person you want to call, otherwise, the phones will not ring, and we never know you called. Sorry! Have a nice day!!!

August 3rd, 2010 Fuming CA

Pain in the neck callers - go eff yourselves.

July 25th, 2010 Employee Part 2 NY

Awwww....you still don't like us. Come on, we have to make a living too. We laugh at all of your complaints. It's histerical!.

One South East Asian guy from call center called me for debt relief program. When I refused to sign up for that service, he said "F_CK OFF" and hung up.

July 15th, 2010 bk AZ

The guy called my wife a f****ng n**er b***h w***e. Then he kept calling back till she blew a whistle in his ear. If you see this number don’t answer.

July 7th, 2010 Karen in TX TX

Man w heavy NY accent- no idea WHY he called. I called the phone number back & got recording saying that phone number is NOT in service! Sounds scammy to me! Probably some of that "we're lower your credit card debt" BS! Reporting to No Call List.

*****Please= everyone report them to the FTC, but find out WHO the company is since they are falsifying the Caller ID with a FAKE phone number. FTC won't like that at all!

Have called at least three times today to the house phone. First time the wife answered and the person asked for someone with my and our son's name. Niether of us were home so she hung up. They have since called twice in less than 10 minutes asking the same question. The first time I raised my voice a bit to lety them know that I could barely hear them. I was told that I didn't need to shout. I again asked in a raised voice "What do you want?" I was told to lower my voice. I told them that we are on the National Do Not Call List and do not call again. A few minutes later another call asking for someone with my name. I again asked them "What do you want?". The person on the other end said something about having unsecured debt. I asked how did he know this, he then starting cussing. I told him we are on the National Do Not Call List and do not call again, and then hung-up. SCAMMERS/PHISHERS to the MAX!!!!!!!

K.S. and R. is hired by other companies to conduct research. Everyone is mad at K.S. and R., but you should be mad at the company who you did business with, that gave your phone number to K.S. and R. The people working at K.S. and R. are only doing the job that they were paid to do. Most people working here are just trying to put food on the table for their families. This is an American owned and operated company, located in an economically depressed area of Upstate NY. I totally understand people don't like to be bothered with these phone surveys, but try to remember it's a fellow human on the other end of line, not some heartless robot or whatever. No one here is trying to sell anything or scam anyone in anyway. Purely "market research".

February 9th, 2010 Employee

I work @ Knowledge Systems and Research and have for the past few years. It's a great job and all we are ever looking to do is get people's opinions on different topics. We don't bite! Sorry to bother you all so much- It's my job.

January 25th, 2010 Evets NY

Dear Employee,

SMILE AND DIAL!!! Also, work has been slow lately. Does this affect pizza day at all? Thanks.

Caller ID says Knowledge SyS&R received call on Nov3,09 at 4:56pm

October 1st, 2009 Not an employee CA

Yes, Employee, just like spammers stop emailing us when we don't respond or just delete the message? Yeah, that works really well.

No, you're not trying to sell us something, but you're still inconvenient as hell. Unless I explicitly offered my opinion, you shouldn't be contacting me. If I don't opt-in, don't bloody call me.

Calling me at 8:30 at night? Don't try to pretend what you're doing isn't bothersome. $40 isn't going to make up for the fact that you've woken up my child.

August 6th, 2009 Employee

My co-workers and I stumbled upon this website. We've been laughing about your comments for the last hour. We are a legitimate company who conducts research globally. We hold focus groups, online surveys and phone interviews with consumers and businesses. Yes, we do pay for your time. I think that's pretty nice of us. AT&T is a company we do research for. It's customer satisfaction research. We do research for a lot of other companies. Look on our website and read our client list.

The do not call list does not apply to a market research company because there are no sales. Your opinions are all a market research company wants. Sometimes you get paid and sometimes you don't. If you are not interested hang up. Have a nice day!

I am still w/ AT&T....god...what do they want??? If they are indeed from AT&T and try to call again, I will switch to other company. I am in Atlanta by the way.

June 25th, 2009 Patty PA

Caller said it was not a sales call, the name was Knowledge Systems. Wanted to pay me $40 to participate in a survey/ I hung up. I see that elsewhere they have offered $250. Hmmm.

March 20th, 2009 Robert WA

Ditto

Phone rang showing New York Call in caller ID. Interestingly, I have had a HORRIBLE experience with AT&T after I moved two miles down the road. All I needed was a transfer of services (land line phone and DSL), but I moved to new construction, and the original IDIOT who took my transfer order never indicated that anything was unavailable at the new address. After about a total of 12 hours on the phone over 6 different service calls, I had a land line connected two weeks after moving in, and I'm still waiting on DSL after almost a month. It has been ridiculously BAD SERVICE for which I was charged, of course. I'll be happy to answer another survey call from these people so I can use some really foul language about AT&T to describe the past four weeks of frustration.

September 24th, 2008 Min CA

Just got a call from someone there, who said "Hello, my name is Mercedes and I'm doing a survey, would you like to participate?" um... heck NO, since you didn't identify the company or what this survey is for. I declined and asked her not to call again. Punched their # into Google and found this site. Called the 800 # listed below and asked them to please not call me again, as "per the Internet, it seems like calls from this number occur several times a day, and I don't wish to waste my time or your dime." Person who answered the 800 # gave the greeting "KS&R" and seemed friendly enough about it.

August 28th, 2008 Chris TX

This same asshole Thomas has called our house 13 times just within the last month. We have asked him to take our name off the list and yet keeps calling. He said this last time "Well...uh...no one has told me about taking your name off the list, this is the first I've heard of it" That makes Mr. Thomas a damn liar!!!! because it has been his same voice every single time and every single time we tell him to stop calling. GRRRR!!!! so frustrating!! I will start looking into lawsuits against these jerks and bring all hell to them!

August 26th, 2008 Maria RI

annoying calls I tracked to Joe Snyder of Knowledge Systems & Research. they have quite a website and go under the guise as "survey takers" and not telemarketers; so say they do not fall under DO NOT CALL rules. they have an 800# - 1-800-645-5469. Maybe we should call them on their dime. they have no ethical values. They are worse than telemarketers, they are LIARS.

August 23rd, 2008 PS

7:30 a.m. on a Saturday! Jump out of bed to answer phone and nobody there! This number shows up at least 3 times a week on caller ID. Just once I would like to get a live person! No clue why they call. We haven't had AT&T for over ten years and haven't made any recent changes in any services.

(315) 452-6467

Hung up when I answered, I recently switched from AT&T to Vonage so I guess thats it.

May 6th, 2008 Pedro Largo NC

They offered me $250 to be part of an online research study to talk about the concerns that we are having with the present economic conditions in regards to our local IT budgets.

Okay, so maybe they can squeek around the DNC laws . . . HOWEVER, making harrassing (repeated unwanted calls) is a crime in most states! I suggest that the only way these companies will stop these 'boneheaded marketing tactics' is to be sued once or twice!

"Class Action Lawsuit" is something every large company understands!!! And fears . . .

January 22nd, 2008 none MO

They hung up when my machine answered. I can block individual numbers, so they won't be calling me again.

January 22nd, 2008 none MO

First time they called me, but I can block individual numbers, so they won't be hanging up on my machine again!

January 14th, 2008 j NJ

Called my cell...wanted to know if number was business or individual

December 18th, 2007 Maggie KS

Asked for our logistics agent by name, I asked them if they were a research firm and he said "No" I told him it was against company policy for us to participate in over the phone research, he said that he had sent our logistics agent an e-mail and wanted to verify he got it. That it was to help him out in his job. I told him he would be out for a while and he said he'd call back. I'll tell him about it when he gets back in.

November 28th, 2007 George TX

Multiple calls daily, leaves no message

November 27th, 2007 Rusty

These jerks were hired by my college alma mater to conduct a telephone survey. Called me two times within 5 minutes of each other tonight. They don't respect the national or any state do not call list and they don't maintain one of their own.

November 24th, 2007 john KY

we cancelled our dsl from att a few weeks ago, and now we are getting calls from this number. I think we should cancel all our land line service...

November 15th, 2007 W.T. CA

No message was left

November 14th, 2007 Lane TX

They called me (my office), the number showed up on caller ID, and the guy actually left a message.. Naturally, he didn't go into any detail about the nature of the call, just left their company name (k s & r) phone number and his name. I did a reverse phone lookup on them to find out who they were and eventually ended up on this site.

November 12th, 2007 Carol CA

This number showed up on my caller ID but no message. I've already told surveyors that I don't want to participate.

November 5th, 2007 John

Yes, it's people wanting to know why I dropped AT&T phone service.

November 1st, 2007 DAK

The person who asked me questions didn't know the address of the company. Asked to speak to a Supervisor. He gave me a disconnected 800# with the supposed supervisor's name. Am calling the BBB; I'm on the DO NOT CALL LIST.Told him to REMOVE ME FROM YOUR RECORDS.

October 24th, 2007 Mike KS

Left At&t for digital phone

3 calls in past 2 days.

yesterday (first time) i hung up and told him i wasnt interested. Called back 2 hours later, same guy, expressed he wasnt into telemarketing and i told him to F^&ck off and stop calling

Next day they have called again.

October 23rd, 2007 BK

have been receiving calls; d/n answer. Called back and was told KSR; wld have been calling for a survey, etc. Told them i was getting calls every day, but if i answer, no one there. She said new device, sorry if a problem that sometimes answer and no operator on yet. Said if continues to be a problem could put my number on a do not call list--or cld do that right now. Told her do it now, and gave her the number. We'll see.

October 22nd, 2007 M

Said his name was Robert, my two year old had the other extension and babbled into it. he said he would call back later. Now that I know what I know from this site I can't wait for him to call back.

October 22nd, 2007 kath

maybe we should all start emailing and faxing them our request to be taken off their list...NON-STOP!

October 20th, 2007 jake TX

I did some research on KS&R on their website www.ksrinc.com. I found the corporate office is in Syracuse and CEO's name is Vincent Camardo. He probably lives in Syracuse and you could probably find him on anywho.com and contact him at home at an inconvenient time.

October 20th, 2007 brian TX

I didn't answer since it was out of my area and probably a bot.

October 11th, 2007 fatz

I also just cancelled some AT&T services and look who has been calling. Tonite it was at 9pm.

October 8th, 2007 Dave CA

Called 3 times so far. I don't pick up, and no message is left on my voice mail.

October 8th, 2007 Kay FL

This number started showing up on my caller ID about a week ago. I am with BellSouth/AT&T and have not switched (although maybe I should!) At any rate, it says "Syracuse, NY" on the caller ID. I don't answer calls from people I don't know and they don't leave messages.

October 4th, 2007 Tuc NY

Called once late last nite, again early this morning. I won't answer calls from numbers not in my phone book. Hasn't left a message either time.

September 22nd, 2007 mare

They called and didn't leave a msg.

September 17th, 2007 Mel

Interesting as I am reading this (after getting a call today), that I too dropped AT&T a little over a week ago (due to their numerous messups when we moved and their lack of ability to correct ALL the issues). The caller ID stated Knowledge Systems, but I was on the other phone line when they called. I am so excited (not!) to see that I can expect more non-calls from them. Sigh.

September 14th, 2007 Diane IN

Wanted to know about my DSL service...

September 8th, 2007 Walt NY

Typical automated calling system checking telephone numbers to see if they ring and or are answered: That ques them to call back and see if they can hook you into answering questions. They get paid for our free answers. Owners are phd's and masters. Not a bad biz. They make millions on answers to questions they get for free!

September 7th, 2007 Q CA

called 2x as UNAVAILABLE 1912 & 1922
third call showed telephone number @ 1940

August 30th, 2007 Ramon FL

They called this morning, I was not at the office yet. I called them back she said they are American Research and Consulting, and that they are conducting some kind of investigation.

August 22nd, 2007 Andy-Janice

They have called every other day for the past 2 weeks. Never leave a message. Perhaps we should inundate their server with e-mail to INSITE@ksrinc.com.

August 21st, 2007 Sean NC

Just got called By this number and did a google as I didn't recognize them.
No one spoke when I answered.

August 14th, 2007 jeff

I just switched my cell phone service from AT&T and based on other users comments, it looks like that's what the call is about.

August 14th, 2007 J. FL

If these motherfuckers call me again, I am going to kill them all. STOP FUCKING CALLING ME OR YOU WILL DIE!

August 10th, 2007 chuck-Bob AZ

This is a huge network of credit card scamers, I have been traking them for moths, they will claim to be several diferent places: here is a list of names they use; Kay bank, financial services, alied collections and international conections.

they work out of; Panama, costa rica, Florida, arizona, ontario canada, south korea and india.

here are some numbers I have from same network; 905-365-9795, 928-493-0402, 626-512-1229, 850-432-4878, 800-301-0117

August 4th, 2007 Don NJ

Julie (?) Richardson called to say they were doing a research group of girls 8-12 in Philadelphia. She asked if there was a family member of that age; I said yes. She then began explaining that they were going to do research...I cut in: Why did you call this house? We are calling houses in Philadelphia, she said. Why this house? BalaCynWood (the location of the research) is an hour away, why call us? I asked. But it is 610 area code, she said. I am 215, I replied. She hung up.

Very strange. Why did she call my house and know that I had an 8-12 year old female in our house???

July 31st, 2007 Lisa NC

This is the second day in a row it's been on my caller id with no message...but COINCIDENTALLY, I, too, cancelled AT&T about two weeks ago and switched to Vonage. Looks like they may be hired to convince us to switch back.

July 31st, 2007 JimWA CA

This annoying caller (315-446-3403) calls our home 2 times a day, even on Sundays.

It all started when we cancelled our service with ATT.

They never leave a message on the answering machine.

July 28th, 2007 Geo NV

Like some of the other posters, I just cancelled AT&T phone service; they called today and left no message. I had switched to an IP phone service, and they are now blacklisted.

"Does the new National Do Not Call Registry affect data collection for KS&R?
The National Do Not Call Registry does not impact KS&R’s data collection efforts as it refers specifically to telemarketing activities, as opposed to research. We do not offer any telemarketing services."

Such self-righteous morons. How good is their survey data going to be when they piss off so many people? And if someone Does Not Want To Surveyed, how is repeatedly calling going to change that? Are they wasting their time as well as ours?

Morons... they deserve to go out of business.

July 24th, 2007 change the law

When I see a number I don't recognize, I let it go voicemail. These morons call all the time and don't never leave a message. Jerks! They should change the do-not-call registry so that a person can choose to be free of any call from anyone. I don't care that they are trying to survey me and not sell me something. I don't give a rat's behind. Just stop calling!

July 6th, 2007 Suzanne MO

Left No Message .. How did they get my phone number?

July 5th, 2007 jim IL

Received 4 calls tonight

July 1st, 2007 Jerry TN

I've gotten 3 calls from this service. Coincidentally I just canceled my AT&T home phone service and switched to an IP based phone. I was able to use my blocking features on the new service to stop these calls from coming in. If you can I'd suggest getting rid of landline in favor of IP phones. At least then you can block them from calling.

July 1st, 2007 smith WI

stop the calls

I just switched from AT&T to another service, and bingo this number started calling, so I imagine this is like D Mitchell described.
Probably want to know how your new service is - Then they'll try to get you back to AT&T.

June 17th, 2007 Beth CA

Knowledge Systems & Research, Inc. (KS&R)
is calling my number.
The man wanted to do a survey. I told him I did not want to do the survey.
I told him to remove my
name and number from his list. I told him I was not interested.
He again wanted to do the survey. He said he was not a telemarketer. I told him again to remove my name and number from his list.
I found the following on their site:
