I can't tell the real charities from the fake ones. The ones that call don't get a penny from me.

On Amazon they have call blocker that actually works with high ratings. vCpr 107 and V201
work in the USA. 200 prerecorder numbers and allows up to 1000 numbers also I believe you can wildcard block certain type numbers. They are a British company.

I would use nomorobo.com if it worked in my area.

January 15th, 2014 Mom MO

This is NOT and I repeat NOT Neilsen ratings!!! It makes me so mad that people who "pretend" to be from them get on these sites and claim to be representing and in defense of the corp. it boils down to this: They are paid to say they are someone they are not by unnamed dummy corps that go to lengths you could not believe to stay hidden, moving all the time using new phone numbers with the same fervor as a germiphobe washes their hands! I am as of this date $28,654.14 invested in attorney's fees, phone calls, certified letters, and other companies who dig in the dirt that unscrupulous businesses use to misrepresent themselves with elderly, disabled and terminally ill patients, such as myself and prey upon the weak and uninformed. Knowledge is power and you have to stay one step ahead of these low-life's. I use them term loosely and with more consideration than they deserve!
ANYONE can purchase the software necessary to become someone on your caller ID that they chose to make you believe. My contact info was sold through a slimy college student at a teaching university where I am receiving treatments for cancer who was pretty tech savvy and accessed the data files on all of the patients with insurance companies who paid much better than federal and state funded government programs. YOU are RIGHT! IT is illegal and it is happening to someone else as I type this. I hope to take out as many slime balls as I can before I am through fighting for my life. At least I won't have just rolled over and let it happen and not try to fight. Good luck to you all and keep on the look out for this kind of problem. Together we all learn from each other and get smarter and stronger.

She gets out her spiel real fast before I can say anything and then asks for a small donation. I told her that I was unemployed and could not help and to please STOP CALLING US. She still had more to say as I was hanging up. So sick of these people calling and calling, begging for money. Charity begins at home, my home. It's a bad economy. Call the rich people out there, not us regular people struggling to make ends meet!

Just got the "FBI says burglary statistics are up" call in Richmond, IN

(813) 366-9800

July 31st, 2013 Craig ME

They called at 8:28PM and I didn't happen to be home so they got to talk to my voice mail. I listened to the short recording of a lady who seemed confused. Apparently their system took my outgoing message as a real person and transferred the call to her. From what I gathered from her brief message, she was doing a survey. Past experience with this company would indicate that it was likely a survey about TV. I dropped cable almost two years ago with the idea of going to a satellite provider. I found that I didn't miss TV at all nor did I miss the massive amount of commercials and never have reconnected. If Nielson wants to call and talk to my voice mail then I can do the single finger delete. It's good exercise and does provide some satisfaction.

July 31st, 2013 Joe WI

These guys could be burglars! They could be just "pinging" your phone with intent to get your phone to cough-up it's GPS coordinates. Why? Just to see if your home is available to be burglarized! Never answer these kinds calls and you will drive them just as crazy. The worst thing any nuisance caller can experience is absolutely no response what so ever.

July 22nd, 2013 Earl AZ

Have heard that this Company has been calling numerous states and has even used phony numbers on their caller ID. Definitely sounds like a scam.

July 17th, 2013 Not Buying It FL

Robocall offed "free" burglar alarm system for "merely letting us put a sign in your yard." I hung up because I suspected fraud.

(813) 200-6555

July 11th, 2013 LB FL

Finally answered the 5th call in 24 minutes. It was a recording stating the FBI says burglary statistics are up. That a free home security system could be yours if you allow them (whoever "them" is) to put a sign in your yard. The first option was to hear more, the second was to be put on their no call list which would take up to 48 hours.

No company name was provided.

July 8th, 2013 not important OK

called 2x in a day no voice message, sometimes rings a few times sometimes gets to voicemail

June 10th, 2013 Eden CT

They keep calling, even though they have been asked several times to remove our number from their list

May 31st, 2013 Jane TX

So, every time we answer a survey, or sign up for a sweepstakes, or donate money to whatever cause, our numbers get sold to everyone under the scamming sun? I have gone through my bank accounts, credit cards, and other "membership" sites and found the privacy section. I check off the do not let 3rd party subsidiaries call me or send me mail, or e-mails. And from now on, I am going to give out the phone number of the any police department when asked for a number. (Just kidding... even I can't be that cruel. I will give them my fax number)

This number just calls and hangs up on me when I answer. And when I call back says its an allocated number.
Getting really annoying.
I think they are also using (813) 793-6945

This company calls and calls and calls....UNTIL you do something about it. I just called 1-800-336-6434 and had to do it twice and the second time I actually got a really nice living breathing person. I asked him politely to remove us from the list and he did. Thats all it takes. The phone call that actually prompted THIS call was from a loud female who started talking so fast it took me two times to cut her off. I had to get rude with her and she sounded all sad and dejected after I told her to stop calling. I would HATE to have her job. But anyway, if you want them to stop calling, thats all you have to do.

January 28th, 2013 Robin TX

January 24th, 2013 Jerry TN

Nielsen Media or Nielsen Ratings has no business knowing what i watch on tv or what brand i use or where i shop. And their survey was unsolictited. My number is listed in the national do not call database so therefore they have no business whatsoever contacting me. These people are criminals who break the law and the law should do something about it.

I don't mind getting a call from this company. I need regular Continuing Professional Education in my profession. Therefore,I don't understand why they would choose to mask their Caller ID. A visit to globalcpe.com shows that their new website is www.cpe.biz.

January 8th, 2013 Sherry

This is Nielsen Media or Nielsen Ratings. They are calling to find out what you watch on TV mostly. They will also ask questions about other things like your shopping habits and brand preferences. As for some of the comments below that say this number-813-366-9800 is not Nielsen, you are mistaken. One person said it was a company pretending to be Nielsen who were actually a debt collection agency, but they called from 800-366-9800. While the numbers are similar, they are not the same. I have no doubt that debt collectors would use this tactic to get you on the phone to attempt to get some money from you, but that's not Nielsen's fault. Also, those people that said this could not be Nielsen because their company headquarters are in New York, you are also mistaken. Nielsen is a GLOBAL multi-billion dollar company. This phone number is from their offices in Tampa, Florida. If you don't want to answer their questions, just block them or call the toll-free number 1-800-336-6434 and ask to be removed from the call list.

This is NOT Nielson, it is a debt collection service using a spoof through Pacific Telecommunications in California to spoof the Nielson caller ID. 800-366-9800 is a number that is registered to Pacific Telecom and they sell the number to spammers, bill collectors and worse to use to spoof caller ID modules. It happened to me (they were actually calling for the couple who had my phone number before me... they hung up when they found out it wasn't them...) and here is an article from Wikipedia saying it happened to more than 50,000 other people; "In June 2012 a search on Google returned nearly 50,000 consumer complaints by individuals receiving multiple continuing spoofed VOIP calls on lines leased / originating from “Pacific Telecom Communications Group” located in Los Angeles, CA (in a mailbox store) in apparent violation of the FCC. Companies such as these lease out thousands of phone numbers to anonymous voice mail providers who in combination with dubious companies like “Phone Broadcast Club” (who do the actual spoofing) allow phone spam to become a greater and greater problem, if not huge at this point."

November 4th, 2012 Rhonda TN

Received calls from this number. Caller ID says Nielsen TV Ratings. I wasn't interested in the survey and blocked calls from that number. Then, we started getting calls from them as an unknown name/number. My husband answered and told them we weren't interested in participating last night (SATURDAY night) and they called again SUNDAY morning! I told them I wasn't interested in participating and was really getting annoyed by this time. As others have suggested, I called 1-800-336-6434 and asked to be removed from their call list. Lady said my number would be removed. Will see. I am also in the Do Not Call Registry.

November 3rd, 2012 Annoyed3 GA

Caller Nielsen TV Rating? If true, how did they get everyone's phone numbers? What private business gave it to them? If you don't want the sharing of customer data,
Opt out of disclosures. Many Companies do not disclose who their 3rd parties are...
If it was Nielsen, they called at least 11 times? Why? Rather than cold calling customers, Internet providers, in order to market to its customers, are putting specific software on home computers and can even see what brand of TV Americans use! No respect for customes--FTC knows about what type of information is being gathered. Data is gathered in the name of the economy.

June 16th, 2012 kevin AZ

i'm with verizon and for alot of people this might work good for you.Under your security settings set it where only"contacts only" can ring your phone.What is so good about this is the fact that if someone calls you from a phone# that is not stored in your cell phone the person will be directed to your voice mail and if it's someone really legit really needing to talk to you they'll leave a message and your phone will notify you that a voice mail was left,whats better is the fact that your phone doesn't even ring when the idiots call and most likely they won't leave a voice mail anyway,so far i've reduced unwanted calls on my unlisted cell phone to zero"0".Just set your incoming calls to "contacts" and leave outgoing and messaging set to "allow all".works for me!.Again this blocking feature works on the device it self and anyone calling from whatever nuumber can atleast leave a voice mail message instead of ringing your cell phone device like grand central station.By the way,even by my cell phone not ringing it will log calls that were blocked and i can quickly check that on my cell phone just to see if it's a number i might reconize,but i only check that at the end of the day.

I received a phone call about a package that was delivered to my house . The package had the name of Jeffrey Brown written on it with my actual address. I left it outside exactly were it was dropped off... There's no one here by that name. However my daughter shares the a somewhat similar last name ( Browne) with an e at the end. I had no association with this package of any kind and to my confusion started receiving calls on my cell number. How the F**k did they get my cell phone number and why were they harassing me for a package I knew nothing of? The first time they called I told them the package was sitting right where they left it- by the time I reached home that day the package was gone so I assumed they picked it up. However the following day they called again and I f*****g lost it. I asked them not to call me regarding this again and hung up.

This company, Nielsen Media, has called my house every day and night for the past week. I finally picked up the phone, mad as hell that they have invaded my privacy and do not call registry, and told the woman on the other end that she had better not call this number again...and she said "Mam, this call is recorded". You know that is really chutzpah! To call my home and then make it seem that I am the intruder! I just wish I could have reached through that phone and slapped her! I know she's an employee, but anyone who would take a job interrupting people's lives for their own private agenda has to be nuts!. Nielsen you should observe the DO NOT CALL registgry!

We never answered any mail, phone calls, or survey or showed any interest, yet they call several times a day. Might be scammers phishing for a live line, faking their number, and using the Neilson name...

December 17th, 2010 SD NV

What is the point of being on "the do not call list" if scum like this can still get your number and call? I never received anything in the mail for Nielsen TV Rating and if I had I wouldn't have mailed it back. Anyone that works for this so called company or as a Telemarketer I would like to inform you that you are the lowest of the low. And you should expect to get chewed out for what you do because believe it or not WE DON'T WANT YOU CALLING US WITH THIS CRAP! They are calling me on my home phone I use for business at all hours of the night and I am SICK OF IT!

They called me like at 11:34 AM today and when I answered some man told me they were Nielson T.V ratings. I told him I wasnt interested but he kept talking as if he didnt hear me so I just hung up. I never sent in a questionaire nor did I say I was intersted in their study. They have been calling me for 2 weeks now & this is the first time I've heard of this nielson Ratings. So I dont know what they want since I've never had any contact with them.

Why would they call you on a cell phone from inside a call center? Other "who called me sites" indicate that this is a scam to get your credit card. This number called me this evening. If it were legit they would have left a voice mail.

Oh, and I have never been a Verizon customer. They called my Vonage number.

I've been getting called by this number at least once a day for a couple of weeks. I had received a postcard in the mail saying that Nielsen Ratings would be calling me. Then they did (with their name on the CID), and I told them I did not wish to participate now or ever. Since then the same number, with "unknown" in the CID now, still calls me once or twice a day. I just double-click the phone to disconnect the call, and I may report them as a DNC violation if it keeps up much longer.

May 3rd, 2010 wutang WI

yes, this is nielsen t.v. ratings, they will only call you after you send them back a questionaire (that for me, included $2.00 cash) and telling them you are interested in doing their t.v. study. They will then call the phone number that you gave them on the questionaire you sent back, just basically verifying the info you provided to them on the questionaire. Then on this phone call you will be getting from them, they will then ask you if you still are willing to participate in their ratings study and if you say "yes", They will send you diaries to conduct the study at home along with cash, for me they sent me $30.00. Hey, why not?, it is a free $32.00! For those complaining about these calls, either you, or someone that knows your info and is trying to pull a prank on you, sent this questionaire back to the company telling them you are interested, if not then how could they possibly get your phone number? - Think about. Or just do like me and say yeah, sure, I could use an extra $30.00 ! and just do the stupid study for them. How can anyone pass up a chance to get $30.00 cash in the mail?!!

Yes, 813 615-6111 is one of USAA's numbers. This is a VERY legitimate insurance company and one with which I have had a policy for many years. Unfortunately, the call came thru as "Tampa, FLA" so I did not pick up initially. Sometimes, their calls from other numbers do show "USAA" on my caller ID. I think their Claims Center is in Tampa.

I don't remember what I did to get on Nielsen's list. But they call me too. I actually called them back and took a quick survey. Twice a year, they send me books to record what I watch on TV for a particular week. They give you $30.00 for participating and it gives you a chance to help out your favorite TV shows. 30 bucks isn't much money, but I participate because I want my favorite shows to have higher ratings.

Caller asked for me by first name and said he was calling from Verizon Wireless and gave a telephone number other than that which showed up on my cell phone.. Said my Verizon Wireless service was up for renewal within the month and asked if I was planning to renew.
Since this is a corporate phone, I told him that any renewal would take place by corporate headquarters. I gave him no other info.
He thanked me for my time and we hung up.
From the noises in the background it seemed like a call center.
Caller was not rude.

The people that do the TV ratings are called The Nielsen Company, not Nielsen Ratings. Their office is in New York. The phone number I've been called from for "Nielsen Ratings" is in a Florida Area code. I do beleive there is some scam work going on, not sure how the 5 dollars ties in though

January 19th, 2010 Chris FL

They called, I didn't answer and found this website instead. They have previously sent a package with $5 cash in it to me to fill out a form and send it back so it is likely related to that (I did send it in and kept the moolah). From what I have seen below, I don't think they run an effective marketing campaign. It appears that the only people that would answer would be naive people who don't screen calls - and this is what sets advertising rates on tv! No wonder this country is going down the drain - our commercials are directed towards idiots, the smart people are skeptical!

October 3rd, 2009 navygirl TX

By the way, my mother was tapped by Nielsen last year to record her TV watching habits. They not only left her a message, they also mailed her a packet to participate. Whoever this is does not seem legit. If they keep asking you to call other numbers, don't do it. It could be a scam to charge calls to your phone number. Check your phone bills if you were duped into making separate calls. I used to work for AT&T wireless. This was a common scam even 10 years ago.

July 1st, 2009 MMR OH

Kapow in the face, Nielsen Ratings. You dial my home hoping to use my time to help you make money. I don't pick up the phone. You dial my home several days in a row, while I'm trying to get some work done, so I block your calls with my phone's handy-dandy block feature. But still the calls come in, ringing once before the block program stops it. To stop the interruptions, I decide to get my name taken off the list.

The caller ID reads 813-366-9800. When I dial the number, I get a recording telling me to call 813-366-6434.

At that number, I get another recording, telling me to dial 813-366-3000.

At that number, someone finally answers, the same Southern male voice as on the recording. I tell him I want to stop the calls to my home. He tells me to dial 813-237-8611. I tell him I have dialed three numbers already and I will dial no more. He says that's the number I have to call. I sputter and say, "You guys... run a low-class operation." He says he's sorry I feel that way, but that's the only way he can help me. I hang up without responding.

I take a deep breath and dial the fourth number. Beee-boo-bop. "This is a nonworking number."

Asked if he had the correct address as to where to mail. Before sending me the survey he needed to get demographics. Age bracket (how many over 18 for number of surveys to send), race, if I had cable, dvr, income (refused to disclose). Said the information would be received in the next couple of days to start the survey on Wednesday (tomorrow). Have not received anything.

This company does not ever leave a message. I have not picked up the phone because I screen my calls. They have called beyond normal hours a company should call. One time they called at 9:34pm on a weeknight - unacceptable to me!!!! I am usually in bed and that is NOT OK to be woken up by a phone call from some company I haven't ever heard of!!! I have reported them and reported the time they called as it's passed acceptable/lawful times!

March 14th, 2009 Dogsayswoof

These people are really unbelievable! They called me all hours of the night, (once at 11:15pm). When I picked up their calls I would get a dead line then they would call again an hour later and I would get the dead line again. This went on several times a night for weeks. Finally I got an customer representative and I asked her very politely to remove me from their calling list. She argued and I just kept repeating my mantra in a clam and relaxed tone. Usually this works but this just infuriated the representative and she started to personally attack my intelligence and then she made the mistake of threatening me. I admit I lost it at this point and there were words thrown and voices raised on both ends. I'm not proud of my behavior but low and behold it worked. She hung up and I haven't had a single call since. The Nelson Ratings company is rude, inconsiderate and at least one of their employee's have anger management issues. Shame on this company for their unprofessional behavior!

March 10th, 2009 Treasa TX

I got a call from these ppl back in jan 2009 and just last week i got their survey in the mail with $5.00. The think is i never took their on the phone survey cause when they called i told them i couldnt talk that i had a kid that was crying and hung up and so i am wondering how they got my home address when i have a unlisted number. My name isnt even in the phone book but they can get my home address. well now starting today i have recieved 4 calls from them starting at 9:13am. I have each time told them that i am not interested and to take me off their do not call list and its like it goes in one ear and out the other cause after i am done and go to say have a nice day they start asking me how many tvs i have in my home and if their is children in the household. i hang up on them and dang if they dont call back later and ask the same thing. And the $5.00 they sent me i had our local shariff take the money to the bank to see if it was counterfit cause i didnt know who this company is. I just told the shariff that if it wasnt counterfit he could keep it for his troubles but if it was i gave him the stuff they sent me in the mail so that something could be done about it. I just wonder how many more times i have to tell them to quit calling and its non of their business how and if there are any kids in my home.

March 6th, 2009 ex-researcher DC

Research companies are exempt from the do not call list. I used to work for 2 different research companies & one being Nielsen. It is like a sales job where you are required to call a certain amount of households per hour and they don't count dialed numbers, they only count actual call contacts. So a researcher would have to call about 100 phone numbers per hour just to get 5 or 6 interested participants and then you can't be slow about the collection of data either. The hardest part is that most people think you're a telemarketer and do mean things like say they're going to get someone and then never come back. They feel better but you get in trouble since you didn't meet you hh/hr requirement. So keep this in mind for both those looking for work and those receiving research co calls.

I participated in this survey (since I'm sympathetic) and received $15. Cool now participants get paid, nice incentive.

March 6th, 2009 Cris VA

Answered the phone yesterday.. told them not interested, do not call again.

They called 6 times today, I let the phone ring but they didn't leave a message on all six calls.

I called them, they gave me an 800 number to call... they said they'll get me off their list.

My point is this: why didn't they just stop calling me after I told the "researcher" the first time! Do they have more rights to my phone than I do? This company, NIELSEN RATINGS should not be exempt from the do not call list, they are actually worst than telemarketers! I think that they are putting out bad data anyway, they don't really listen.... I distintly remember that I told them I was not interested at all in what they are doing, yet they interpreted it as "call this person over and over again"!

These Nielsen Ratings people are a pest. They have been calling every day for weeks now. I don't answer the phone, because these kinds of gimmicky companies want a huge amount of your time answering surveys or they want to sell you a product that you don't need. (i.e. They want your time or money, or both) I signed up for the donotcall list, because these companies are such an annoyance. Of course some of them slip through the cracks, because they are "non-profit", but this is maddening. After two or three tries they should stop, not day in day out for several weeks. I wish there was a law that would punish these companies for using your own land line to torment you.

October 29th, 2008 Nielsen Blows TX

They've called every day for the past week. I've answered every time and told them I'm not interested in sharing my TV viewing habits with them. They clearly don't take no for an answer. "I told you no every day you've called, I'm telling you no now, and when you call tomorrow and the next day the answer will be no again."

What use is the no call registry?
