They need to stop calling because it is very annoying. I had just put my kids to bed one nite they called and just assure as the phone rang and i didnt answer, it woke my kids up...STOP CALLING! NO ONE CARES ABOUT YOUR SURVEY...IF YOU CALL A HOUSE AND NO ONE ANSWERS THEN GIVE UP...USE SOME COMMON SENSE!!!!
I DO NOT WISH TO RECEIVE ANY MORE TELEPHONE CALLS FROM THIS COMPANY. VERY ANNOYING. ALL HELP WILL BE APPRECIATED
I ANSWERED THE PHONE ONLY TO GET A FEMALE RESPONSE OF "I'M SORRY I HAVE THE WRONG NUMBER" THIS NUMBER HAD BEEN CALLING MY HOUSE PHONE FOR THE PAST FOUR DAYS GETTING MY ANSWERING MACHINE EACH OF THE OTHER TIMES, YET THEY HAD TO WAIT UNTIL I ANSWERED THE PHONE TO REALIZE THEY HAD GOTTEN A "WRONG NUMBER". UNSURE HOW THEY GOT MY NUMBER TO BEGIN WITH.
Getting calls from 6136883615 repeatedly to my cell phone - I foolishly gave that number to FedEx when they left a package of mine sit on a truck with "No Delivery Attempt" for three days while I was out-of-town. Within days of the package problem, this number began calling repeatedly to my cell phone. They are in Canada, so they do _not_ need to abide by the restrictions placed on even surveytakers in the US.
I contacted FedEx, letting them know I am _seriously_ unhappy about this...not only do they screw up the package, they manage to make me furious with the telemarketing. Really idiotic way to lose customers, that's for sure.
Samething happens to me and I live in Montreal (Quebec). Is there any solution?
I don't answer calls from area codes where I don't know anyone. I don't answer calls from "unknown callers. I figure if they never get an answers at my number they will give up. I hope I'm right. Glad to se others feel the same way.
They keep calling and hanging up when we answer in Edmonton Alberta. They seem to be trying to establish patterns of when you are at home.
they call me to past two weeks. They hang up after 3 rings if I don't get to the phone on time
Name on caller ID shows Gatineau QC (Quebec). Didn't answer. I don't know anyone in Canada. I don't make it a habit of answering calls from unfamiliar numbers. No message left.
THEY CALLED 3 TIMES TODAY 1ST 2 NO ANSWER THE 3RD TIME I COULD HEAR SOMEONE TALKING AND I KEPT SAYING HELLO HELLO THEY FINALLY CAME ON AND WHEN I ASKED WHO IT WAS THEY SAID WEEDMAN I TOLD THEM TO TAKE ME OFF THERE LIST AND SHE SAID OK OK WE'LL SEE TOMORROW
I don't even answer the phone when i see that number don't have time for that kind of shit.
WTF WHOS THIS PERSON
ITS A GIRL WHO CALLED AND IM KINDA OF SCARED CAUSE SHE ASKED ME
IF I STILL LIVE IN THIS ADRESS , AND THE ADRESS WAS CORRECT
they are calling 3 times a day.Is the do not call registry not working?
This "survey company" was calling on behalf of the Texas Lottery Commission...and they have called several times. Each time I tell them I don't gamble and tell them not to call again.
I work for Ipsos-Reid.
I understand people are busy and are not interested in taking part in surveys. However, we don't sell anything and alot of the surveys we do are political or in regards to important issues that effect all Canadians and/or Americans. For example: We did one (focusing heavily on New Brunswick) in regards to a Nuclear Waste Facility. Alot of people didn't want to do it. BUT, I guarentee that these clowns will whine when a nuclear Waste Facility opens in there community. They are the people that whine "the government didnt even give us an option to give an opinion". Well, they did, but you were to busy watching tv.
No message called 2x in one hour
Enough is enough from sites like this. Where is the FCC when we need them
These Weedman are getting on my nerves not only are they scammers but are rude as hell! THEY LIE SO BADLY! The called one time and i picked up and they said about a their service coming around the neigborhood to spray pesticides on dead grass and i'm just like..ok? and that was all! they are sending me invoices up to $220 or so just out of the blue and i NEVER agreed to pay for anything and they claim that they told me on the phone about all the invoices! We called to complain 3 times now! the first time we told them that we didn't agree to PAY for anything and to stop whatever they are doing to our grass (it still looks the same as before btw) The second time, we called becuase they came back and started spraying our grass even when we specifically told them NOT TO! third time we called was today to complain and the lady on the phone was giving attitude and so damn rude? This Weedman is a huge joke and a huge scam! this is so frikin ridiculous! not only they they have terrible manners, they are unorganized and ridiculous!we have to take them to court soon LIKE SERIOUSLY
I got called from these guys today and I blocked them from ever calling me again. Telemarketers and survey companies will NEVER stop calling you even if you ask to be put on a do not call list. I have a CALL BLOCKER and I NEVER receive calls from any of these clowns anymore. Check out this call blocker www.interceptorid.com It will block individual numbers or whole area codes or you can use wildcards to block any matching numbers in the phone number.
I am not associated with the company but I am a VERY satisfied user of this product. It will make all these clowns go away FOREVER!!!
Rec'd call at 5:00 pm no message - number 613-688-3625
I called the number back after receiving the call. IPSOS N AM is a research company. You are able to remove your number from their list. They are not subject to the No Call List.
Keeps calling. When answering machine picks up they hang up. We do not answer callers we do not know.
They are persistent and keep calling. Can't something be done about this number? They need to be stopped.
Calls come in sometimes after 9 PM.
I GOT 3 SIMALAR CALLS FROM: IPSOS N AM. THIS NUMBER SHOWS UP 613-688-3625. I TURN ON MY OTHER ANSWER MACHINE & WHEN IT ANSWERS BACK ITS WITH A SMART NASTY OUTGOING MESSAGE. I DO NOT ANSWER UNKOWNS OR CRAP LIKE THIS.
The resolve I have had regarding this issue is to use an email blaster that will send up to 2.5 million emails, yes, 2.5 MILLION EMAILS. This device is used by all the companies that send you the annoying spam mails and as it is not a virus, there is no law against using it and using their same logic as they are out of Country, SPAM THE HELL OUT OF THEM.
I used to work at this place!!! IT SUCKED!
BUT HEADS UP TO ANYONE GETTING PHONE CALLS FROM IPSOS :
if you hang up, they will call back. Again and again and again.
If you don't want to be bothered you must said "please take me off your list" - If the staff does not hear the word "list" they WILL NOT REMOVE YOU.
And if there is no answer when they call, they will call back.
If they ask for someone, and you say they are not there, or don't wan't to talk, they will call back.
They only way to escape them is to do the survey (IPSOS NEVER SELLS ANYTHING - ALL I EVER DID THERE WAS DO STUPID SURVEYS!) or you have to tell them to take you off the LIST!
Good luck all.
Called at 6:34 pm. No message
The number 613-688-3625 has called several times within the last month.. They leave no message and caller ID says Ipsos N Am I am tired of getting these calls. Why don't they leave a message??
They have called twice today. After the first, I found this site and got a number to contact and ask them to put me on their 'Do not call' list: They pleasantly agreed. One hour later, another call: so I asked that person to put me on the 'Do not call' list. They pleasantly agreed.
They just called me again, this time they introduced themselves calling "on behalf" of FedEX.
They said to me they are FedEX survey. They even knew what day I called FedEx concerning my package.
I didn't do the survey, got online and found this website.
Now I called FedEX thinking they sold my information, but they said it's FedEX's "SURVEY DEPARTMENT" and FedEX do not give out the customer information.
If FedEX is telling me the truth, why other people on this page don't know this survey company is FedEx??
They call everyday, usually everyday after 5:00. Don't they ever give up?
Have received multiple calls from 613-688-3615 over the last month or so at our business. Caller never leaves a message. We finally called them back and pretended to be calling for someone else. When they said they thought we had the wrong #, we asked, "Is this PowerDeck Inc.?" That is when we were told, "No. This is Absis Direct, a market research firm." Don't know accurate spelling for Absis. Service rep was very congenial, though, and readily confirmed their info. Area code ids a Canadian #, too, as others have said below.
This number is in Ottawa, Ontario and is some sort of public opinion agency. It was a long name and I didn't catch more than "public opinion" when I said NO THANK YOU!! This number started showing up on my call display last week. But tonight I was home. It was 5:30 on a freaking SUNDAY evening!!!! I don't recall ever getting this type of call or any kind of telemarketing call on a SUNDAY NIGHT!!!! Piss off!!!! GRRRRRRR as if. What a sorry ass job..
This number has called my house several times and only in the evenings. Each time it rings only once and then stops so I couldn't answer even if I wanted to.
They Called twice in an hour, they got answering machine and hung up. # called was (613)668-3625
Same thing happened to me this past two weeks. They hang up after 3 rings if I don't get to the phone on time. Twice I picked up and the first time, they said that we've used their service in the past (ummmmmmmm no I don't THINK so) so I told them we are not interested. The second time I picked up, a lady said the same thing and then I told them my parents are too cheap/frugal to use a lawn service and she started quoting the bible (WTF!) about honouring your parents. And then I ask her well when did we use the service and she couldn't give me an answer.
Claimed to be doing a survey. Hung up because I don't care.
By the way, Karen still managed to get her sales spiel in, even while I was in the middle of complaining. Looks like I'm going to get some brochures in the mailbox whether I want them or not.
Had a very bad time with Weedman, today. I have two phone lines in the house; they phoned six times on one line and twice on the other, all within a span of 1.5 hours. Most were hangups, but I managed to get an agent named "Karen" on the line once. After I explained how annoying these calls were, she explained that the hangups are due to an automated system that listens for two rings, then picks up on their end and waits for a voice. When it detects nothing, it hangs up. That's why most of these calls end after three rings. By the time that we hear the third ring, the automated dialer is already in the process of hanging up.
Anyway, Karen said that she would put my numbers on their do-not-call list. She also stated that it would take up to four days for the numbers to be removed. I do know that the number removal works, but is only temporary. The last time that I was put on the DNC list, they began calling me again after exactly eight weeks.
So, in the meantime, I guess the only recourse is to call the BBB.
Tired of receiving these calls. If Weedman - or anybody else - Leave me alone - Calling here for nothing & having nothing to say very annoying!
too bad you can't edit type o's on this thing...sorry for my errors here...oops :P
After 5 calling the 1800 number back 5 times and being hung up on I finally got through to a nice lady named "pat" she, said she was very sorry for the other csr's behavior they have some young ones there, took my telephone number for the do not call list!!!
They called 2 times today, first call was a hang up 2nd one the girl was laughing, said hello mr xxx...I said i'm the mrs...she hung up on me ....I tried calling back 5 times and they hung up on me everytime.....who can we report these people to????
After an absence of nearly eight weeks, Weedman has started calling me again. So far, it has just been hangups whenever I answer the phone. Doesn't seem like a very good way to drum up any business... ;-)
calls nightly after 6pm never leaves message. hooked phone up to fax machine for a while. that sways them

We should all call the number back at the same time.........
Weedman kept calling all day on Sat. tree time! March 15, 2008 from this 800 586 0734 a woman Shila?
Weedman kept calling all day on Sat. March 15, 2008 from this 800 number.
Caller ID showed 779-4720 to 473. Phone Number showed 800-586-0734. I picked up the phone. There was no one at other end. They called at 8:28 pm CDT, March 11, 2008. No need for lawn care here for a while.
Ipsos Reid calling regarding a recent transaction with Fed Ex.
They call every year and what irks me is their pesticides are know carcinogens and have been linked to pet illnesses and even a few animal deaths.
i called it back its a call center
Regular calls from this number. I practically have it memorized. After 3 rings they hang up. What a pain.
please everyone who gets a call please call consumer protection to stop this scam. I am sure if there are enough complaints they willdo something to stop them.
It's a big scam.
one of my collegue start getting invoices for lawn services when he never asked for, he had to call consumer protection and after months of fight they canceled invoices. Just complain to consumer protection so they do soemthing about this company and their scam.
Called 6 times over the last 2 days. Did not pick up. Glad to hear I'm not alone.
They started calling two days ago, the caller ID shows:
779 4740 TO 475
779 4700 TO 471
Have called twice No. used 613-688-3615 will not answer.
I had a week's respite from the Weedman until they called again today. The guy on the phone was very pushy. When I refused their offer of a free evaluation of my lawn, he wanted to know what was was wrong with me. "But, it's free!" he kept saying.
Even if they offered to pay me to evaluate my lawn, I'd still refuse to do business with these cretins.
no answer, no message
called my office number four separate times in past week, got my business answering machine each time, still keeps calling and never leaves message
Well, they're still calling. Twice yesterday and twice today. As before, they let it ring three times, then hang up, so that the answering machine doesn't pick up. Looks like I'll have to call them again and tell them to piss off.
I can't wait until Canada's Do Not Call registry comes into effect on Sep. 30, 2008. It can't come soon enough!
Well, this is the third time that they've phoned and hung up right in the middle of their opening sentence. If it wasn't so damn annoying, I might find it humorous. Anyway, I phoned them back and actually got a real person on the line. I told him to remove my number from their database. We'll see if they honour that request or not.
"Chris" phoned again, and hung up again, right in the middle of a sentence. So far, this telemarketing technique is not making much sense.
Well, they phoned again today and I picked up. The fellow asked for me by name, then said "Hi, my name is Chris", then promptly hung up. Very odd.
Hung up no message
I live in Colorado, it's the middle of Winter, no need for lawncare, plus I don't have a lawn. Also, how did they get my number?
These buggers just called again for the 3rd freaking time this week. They called at 8:50 pm!!!! I don't have a lawn!!!!!!!!! I live in an apt. And they probably use pesticides. I sent them a nasty email to piss off. Maybe they will stop????? There is 3+ feet of snow on the ground - what's wrong with these freaks???????????? Are they that desperate??? Guess so but when they call at 10 to 9, I get really mad.
If you are on the Do Not Call List and you currently have no business with this company or have not had any business with this company in the past, then what they are doing is illegal. Report them to the Do Not Call Registry!!!
Apparently, this is the Weed Man lawncare people trying to drum up some business. They've called a couple of times in the last few days. They always hang up after the third ring to avoid letting the answering machine pick it up.
No message recieved a call from KANTAR OPS 2 minutes before.
Called my number 7 times and left no msg on VM.
Have had several calls over the past few days - they leave no message. I e-mailed Angus Reid and insisted they remove my phone number from their telemarketing list.
Hope it works. Meantime, maybe if enough of us e-mail them, they'll get the hint. Here's the e-mail address I used.
Person continuing to call twice a day. I have not answered yet. Trying to research the number. Compforting to know I'm not the only one.
They Keep calling leave no message. When you call back you get a Busy Signal.
looked up info on another complaint board on the net. They say the number belongs to IPSOS-Angus Reid in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. They are a political and marketing polling/survey company. According to their website their contact number is 1.888.210.7425
You can try calling that number and ask to be removed from their list.
Didn't answer, they didn't leave a message, the number was 613-688-3625.
This number has called repeatedly over the past few todays. Today alone I've counted 7 calls since I got home at 4:30. I've picked up twice and hung up and they keep calling back. Very annoying.
Hi, this is Shawn, I am with "some research company"...
I hung up.
Survey group out of canada
Left no msg on VM.
Origin: Ottawa-Hull (Allstream).
Did not pick up.
Received call ~12:40pm Saturday. Said they were calling on behalf of the Texas Lottery Commission to get public's ideas on lottery. When I asked if they realized we were on the Do Not Call List, very polite lady said "You're not on ours, but I can add you." When I pointed out that this was a National Do Not Call List that entailed federal prosecution for violating, she said, "Oh, but I'm calling from Canada." (!!) paid for by a Texas State pseudo-agency, yet!
No message left. Ontario.
Called at 4:50 pm, no message.
Calling, asking if it is okay to give a quote, or something. Not even in the same country as I.
calling a little late at night. no message when phoned back no answer. A little fishy suspect its a scam, especially not showing a caller id.
2 to 3 Times every night after being told each time do not call.
They call on a regular basis and at various time during the day
