Mayor Ford? ROFL

November 23rd, 2013 Media Reporter Germany

More charges are expected against a TDSB teacher already charged with 110 sex-related offenses against pre-school children and animals.
Gordana "Gordy Stefulic", 53, charged with conspiring to kid nap and drug a child, sexually assaulting chi ldren, creating child porno graphy and best iality, had made a court appearance Friday but has not yet had a bail hearing.

Several family members of alleged victims filled the courtroom as Stefulic appeared in the court with her lawyer and $500,000 Canadian dollars bribes for the Judge.

“Creep,” one family member whispered.

November 15th, 2013 trish MI

I didnt answer because i didnt know who it was.

November 8th, 2013 Lorna UT

I also got a call from them. The IRS has an article warning about these people and a number to call if you hear from them: 1-800-366-4484


November 2nd, 2013 Buddy UT

This is a scam call, guy with a heavy Indian accent claiming to be with the IRS. Made numerous claims that we owed thousands in back taxes and threatened property seizure and arrest if I did not wire money as soon as possible.
Do not be taken in by these morons.
1. If any one attempting to collect a debt EVER makes threats, uses obscenities or intimidation (including the IRS) they are in violation of a number of federal laws.
2. The IRS will never call you, any notices would be via "snail mail".

October 11th, 2013 Not so gallible KS

Yeah I too got the IRS call and reported them---when they called again I did not let them speak rather I told them they had been reported and if they called again I would report to our state agency that is like the FBI-----no more calls did I get.

October 10th, 2013 Inge CO

I got a call from this number and the man said that the IRS had a lawsuit pending against me...

October 10th, 2013 J. CO

This is a scammer calling. "Ronnie" claims to be an IRS agent that has filed suit against you. He will try to have you send money via MoneyGram at Walmart. It's a typical money transfer/wire scam, but sounds scary because of the agency he claims to be a part of. It couldn't be further from the truth. The phone number is registered to Cavalier Telephone, LLC in the state of Kentucky, but it sounds like Ronnie is calling from India. His accent is thick and his command of the English language is questionable. He and his cohorts are losers. Do not fall for their scam.

October 8th, 2013 Michael GA

This man says he is the IRS and that he is looking for me. Never says my actual name.

Another research/polling group for one of the campaigns. BTW- those of you who say Romney is a crook, remember that Nobama stole $700 billion from Medicare and stealing money from the Health Insurance (Tricare) funding for military retirees to fund his ObamaCare law. Now that's stealing! The next time Nobama says he supports he military and Veterans, remember that if his lips are moving he's lying.

Are the political wastes of life from both parties so sure that I don't want to talk to them that all such calls come up as "unknown name", "blocked number", "restricted", or the like? Then they don't even leave a message, which tells me that they didn't even have anything important to say.

Thankfully the election is almost over! These unwanted calls will stop for a few month at least. To bad the Do Not Call list does not cover political calls also.

Victory Rally for Paul Riley (VP running mate pick of Romney)8:30 am 2012 08 14
left on voice mail attached & sent by e-mail, E-mail subject line has phone # &"no name provided" as second line of Call ID

Missed Call e-mail notification eight minutes later says: DIST OF COLUMBI
(the last characters of line two of Call-ID are truncated). my number was called twice.

Luckily I have a better more desireable thing to do that morning ->

I had tooth #15 (12 yr molar upper L) prepped for a crown,
A newly graduated Dentist had prepped it--under the supervision of my dentist at the clinic. The finished crown came back from lab along with one for #14 (6 yr molar Upper L.)
There was some touch up preperation for impressions and having the dental lab have a "DO OVER" but Dr. Alberto S. DDS advised me that the tooth wouldn't last long with a crown (failure by breaking at gum line if I bit on something wrong 'OOPS'.


I'll be busy with something MORE PLEASANT at the same time the rally is held.

Modern Dentistry IS GREAT, all the rest of the teeth in my mouth are mine.
(wisdoms excepted)

I'll be back to eating & chewing normaly in less than a week.

Too bad that can't be said about the politicing stuff.

Mark Twain's quote about kinds of lies "...lies...d*mn lies...statistics..." could add
a fourth "POLITICS"

This sound like W C Fields:
(pause) (I) never vote for politicians.

(pause--business with cigar, hat, gloves, or beverage)

It only encourages them.

but I haven't researched it. Gr Uncle Jerry

Picked up phone. No one there. The number is now in my computer program PhoneTray Free which will answer this number the next time they call, give them a piece of my mind, and hang up. All that's needed is a Fax/Data/Voice/CallerID modem and the free program. Check it out at: www.phonetray.com

When I looked up 202-800-1221 complaints on google, this is what was there:
Spoofed Numbers: Caution, 202-800-1221 is a "spoofed" number, which means that whoever called you "tricked" your caller ID to display an incorrect phone number. Telemarketers do this so you cannot complain, but they failed... you can still file a complaint here to fight back against unethical telemarketers.

Called and did not leave a message. I couldn't find who it was on a search of the number, but it occurred to me to use the "Who called me" and I found others who have been dialed by this number. My cell is on the registered do not call list.

ever since I ordered a product called "instahang" from it's source website instahang.com I have been plagued with multiple telemarketing calls, day and night. I'm not entirely sure this is them, but Quality resourced in clearwater, FL was who they sold my information to, and I got them to stop harassing my by filing a complaint with the BBB. 4 days later I start to get unwanted BS calls again. Something tells me that they are STILL SELLING MY INORMATION!?!?!?

January 27th, 2012 Marisa MA

I got the call but did not answer. I still get charged for the call. Can they be getting a cut of that just by placing a call??

January 27th, 2012 Dontanswer NM

Don't know anyone in the 202 area code and don't care to talk to anyone from DC. So.. Since they don't have the common courtesy to leave a message on our voicemail they won't be talking to us no matter what they are calling about. OH.. And we don't do surveys. If we have a bitch about something someone does we tell them to their face about it. If someone, rare as it is, ever, does anything totally above and beyond the norm. Then we tell them so to their face. We expect EVERYONE to do what they are supposed to do the way they are supposed to do it. No one should expect coodoes about doing the job and doing it right or getting downed about not doing the job right if they are doing it right. Pretty simple phylosophy considering how lazy people have been getting over the years. It's simple.. DO NOT CALL ME FOR A SURVEY! I DON'T DO SURVEYS!!

January 27th, 2012 tom CT

According to another site I found while googling, it's a survey. I got a call at around 10:30am today(1/27/12, eastern standard time)

I would like to see the Federal Trade Commission go after these kind of people, it is bad enough when it is a live person calling, but now computers telling you what they want with a human voice is even more irritating. I just hang up and keep a record of the insensitive people's actions. 2012 coming up and i am watching these types of calls very close. We will have enough of it as it is with the presidential election coming up next year and we sure as heck do not need telemarketing calls on top of that as well.

Responding to comment from "Dog" below: Dog, you could be right. Illogical as it seems as first, it is possible that these pests could have found a way to hack into the files of the Do Not Call registry. They pasted the numbers into their database, and now the robo calls go right to the numbers of people on the DNC list! It would be no surprise to find that security is lacking on that list! Maybe since the DNC list is a waste of time and taxpayers' money, maybe it should be dismantled. (I also doubt that the FCC is able to do much, either.)

Hey, Mis Priss Wiss, there are plenty of teabag retards in Washington too. Maybe it was one of them who was calling you.

December 7th, 2011 Mis PrIss Wiss OH

Got the call today at 11:56 am Eastern, which I did not answer. I know NOBODY in the "202" area code. I also do not want to answer questions in wrong way, that can be traced back to me (or my number) and used against me, by the liberal communists in Washington DC. From reading the comments on here, and it being the top number, without typing to search for it, I guess I made the right choice. And I do agree, THE FTC is not answering/taking seriously my complaints on calls like this, and me being on the DO NOT CALL list. It just seems to be a tracking database, instead of a prosecutory functionary, a promised. Do NOt Calllist isawste of time and our tax dollars... which is why I still get these calls.

December 6th, 2011 Irritated NM

December 3rd, 2011 E WV

I repeatedly called the number back until I got through. . .it is from ESG Research Group and for giggles I took the recorded three question survey: You rate these questions on a scale from 1 to 5 with 5 being the best.

Question 1: What rating would you give the Democratic party on dealing with the nations debt crisis?
Question 2: What rating would you give the Republican party on dealing with the nations debt crisis?
Question 3: What rating would you give the President on dealing with the nations debt crisis?

I think when we get this particular call we should all answer the question in the reverse of what you really believe and see what that does to their little research numbers. Hey if they can waste my time then I am going to waste theirs!!! Maybe at least now that I answered they will stop calling. There is an option when you call back to have your number removed from their call list, but no surprise that does not work since I have used that option I know a good 10 times and the calls still come.

12-02-11 What a fake. They take the DNC list and copy the numbers into their phones and dial all of them up. What do you mean the call was from Wash D.C? Probably on some crab fishing vessel out in the Atlantic off shore from some IRAQI dissident.Don't blame our FTC, they only take reports, they don't do any enforced actions.

December 2nd, 2011 me SC

this call is related to SPAM - out of Washington DC

December 1st, 2011 Ruth

Regard it as you like, but you don't get to choose the terms you agree to when you sign on to a commercial service or government program. You don't have room to complain later if you have not read and understood those terms.

To overcome the exempt status of a caller in your complaint you have to establish behavior which is not exempt. Some comments on 800Notes suggest this is the case, that yet another surveyor, said to be ESG Research, is cloaking sales activity behind a DNC exemption.

November 13th, 2011 Thom Australia

That is just a load of garbage. I'm sorry, but it is.

November 11th, 2011 Resident47 RI

Thom, the DNC program has done wonders to cut down phone traffic -- within its scope -- from legitimate businesses. What is not working is the reading comprehension of many who have registered their numbers,

Company that identified itself as "Answer Solutions". They offered a cruise a for the answer to some non sensative demographic questions. When transfered to an "operator" i asked about the company and was told the name was Answer Solutions and all they can tell me is that they are on the "East Coast". When I asked to speak to a supervisor the rep hung up on me. Very dodgy call.

suppose to have won a all inclusive cruise to bahamas...can't get thru to website to confirm or deny

September 26th, 2011 UncleBubba VA

@STUDENT: Hey, you are aware that ANI/CallerID information can be forged, aren't you? This is the new spam (well, perhaps not that "new") and its purveyors will protest their innocence--loudly--to the ends of the earth.

Think about it: if you were making a bunch of hated calls, would you make them appear to come from your neighborhood? Personally, I'd try to make it look like it came from the other side of the country (as he has apparently done).

I hope someone annoys the snot out of the bastard!

September 26th, 2011 Gladys GA

Just got a call from this number. Busy signal. Blocked it from my phone. I think its a scam.

September 26th, 2011 Tricia MN

A rcorded voice said I had won a free cruise; all I needed to do was answer a few questions. Eek!

September 23rd, 2011 Kate Christnot WI

This ia a 4 year old SCAM. Told you will get 2 free cruise tickets for taking survey, with a live person. Then told to go to web site "www.surveycruise.com", when enter your inof goes to message page that keeps saying "un handled and check tracking". The # they called from is no good either. this is all "sponsored" by United Survey Group, which has no ligit physical address or phone number. complaints on ripped-off, yahoo, etc going back 4 years!

September 23rd, 2011 Kate Christnot WI

4 YEAR OLD SCAM!!! Was told I would receive 2 fee cruise tickets if take survey. Went to "survey.com" after, as directed, filled in my info and kept going to a page that said "not handled, check tracking". The phone call and survey site is sponsored by "United Survey Group". Cannot locate any physical address of ligit contact info for them. Did find numerous complaints on yahoo, google, rip-off etc. going back 4 YEARS on this "survey cruise" and the United Survey Group.

September 23rd, 2011 Leroy

@STUDENT - if you look at that guys info, he owns an 'autodialing company' which is exactly what is calling us. He deserves to be terrorized regardless of whether it is his company doing it or not.

September 23rd, 2011 Nailer IL

September 22nd, 2011 Laraine IL

Called my personal cell phone number....not sure how that go that number. Didn't answer it; no voice message.

September 22nd, 2011 r OR

It was a pre-recorded message explaining that if I participated in a survey, I would immediately be the recipient of two free cruise tickets to the Bahamas! ot press 1 to take some random survey (that wasn't even explained in the recording) I pressed nothing but stayed on the line to see if there were more options than to "press 1 to take the survey now and get two FREE cruise tickets to the Bahamas!" .... but there was no other options, such as "press 2 to never receive a call from us again!" I just hung up.

September 22nd, 2011 ML CA

Called my personal CA cell phone. I don't know anyone from DC. Must be a scam.

September 22nd, 2011 Nathan IL

They called me promising a trip to the bahamas, but they didn't do my information correctly. hoax.

a phone call from 2024805620

September 21st, 2011 Rodney CA

This company called claiming that if I answer 10 questions I will be up for a cruise to the Bahamas. I went through answered the questions then talked to a rep just long enough to give him my name cell number and zip code. Then he sent me to a recording that said if I will go to WWW.Surverycruise.com I can register to claim my cruise. Conviently when I got on the web site the guy typed my last name incorrectly. I tried to edit but and continue with the submission but it came up with my information is inconsistent and wouldn't allow me to go any further. I then tried the link to send an email and it just gave me an error and wouldn't allow me to submit. I'm sure it is a hoax but I going to try and find a number to report them to a consumer watch group because I'm sure it isn't legal.

September 21st, 2011 Amy AZ

Message was something about winning a cruise as I hung up.

I received this call at 8:41 p. m. on my cell. I called back (hiding my number) and received two beeps and call failed notification. I then tried without hiding my number and received the same response.

September 20th, 2011 Student CA

I called the number from @ANGRY's post:

He said:
"Some asshole put my information to a telemarketing number site and I get 50 calls per day. My area code is (949) not (202)"

Maybe that post should be removed. Don't think it's worth terrorizing a random person.

September 18th, 2011 TEX TX

this call came in yesterday Sept.17th 2011 - had no message, we did not pick up as unknown number. Also our home phone is unlisted.

September 16th, 2011 me IA

I got this phone call on my cell, and did not recognize the number, although I could see that it was a DC number and knew that it was likely a phone call that I would regret answering. I accidentally (or was it?) hit the "reject" button, then came here to find out who it had been. Thanks to the site, I will add this number to my list of rejected numbers (actually, it's the inaugural number. Congratulations?)

September 16th, 2011 artemismoon

Received on my mobile which is unlisted and on the Do Not Call list. I didn't recognize the number so I ignored the call.

September 15th, 2011 Cielo NV

I don't give my cell # to ANYONE, so this is an automated calling system which is in violation of federal law because I'm on the national DNC list. I filed a complaint at callercomplaints.com (along w/208 other victims) hoping that if enough of us do, this creep will go out of business. THANKS to whocalled.us & contributors for letting us know who he really is and his real address & phone #. You guys ROCK!

September 15th, 2011 none OH

Cruise recorded msg, no company name, no way to opt out or speak to live person. Seems illegal telemarketing

September 13th, 2011 DrPoop DC

Hung up as I answered. Called back a few times and it hung up automatically each time. Was busy every other time.

September 11th, 2011 table turned

Folks, give ole Montes a call every time his system calls you. Send a letter to Verizon wireless and to ole Monte telling them that you are officially telling them to cease. I plan on calling Mr. Monte everytime his stupid machine calls me. Lets see how he likes it.

Same call. Same cruise. Everyday. Won't stop. I gave them there own ringtone, so I know when not to look at the phone.

cruise free offer

September 1st, 2011 Very annoyed

I keep recieving calls from this number (several times a week for several weeks now). Its a recording that says its a public opinion poll and for my answers i'll receive 2 free boarding passes for a cruise to Nassau Bahamas. I know its a scam, so I hang up. There is no option to say "no" to the survey.When you try to call the number back, its a busy signal or the line just goes dead. I want them to stop calling me!! This is ridiculous!

August 25th, 2011 jim TN

kept calling until I answered and took short survey on BS. The said I won 2 all inclusive cruise tickets and directed me to website to claim them but you can't..alla scam

August 23rd, 2011 huh CA

got the call about the free Nassau cruise (with the foghorn and captain cheesiness), did the survey, gave my real name to a real person...when they asked if this was the best number to reach me at I asked "for what purpose?" They didn't answer, just asked again, "is this your home number?" I repeated "for what purpose?" and they hung up.
just googled "phone survey free bahama cruise" and spent the last 15 minutes skimming various sites, blogs, etc. Still not sure exactly what their goal is or what they'll do with the information I've given. We feel like our information is obviously quite accessible to just about any company out there, devious or not, based on all the junk mail/email that we get regularly... so I'm assuming this won't really make a big difference...
but the curious thing is that even though the records on this same sort of phone call go back now like 3-4 years, so far I haven't found a definitive answer as to who this is, what they're doing, how it works, or what to do about it.

August 20th, 2011 j

Robocall Cruise scam. Got the same call from a number that had a caller id of all zeroes the other day.

August 19th, 2011 dhrm

Some kind of cruise scam automated message. They called twice 2 days in a row. The second time, I tried to call back to have my number removed from their list, their system hangs up immediately.

It was a recording of Judy Baar Topinka recommending I vote for Mark Kirk for US Senate. Ironic that they're spoofing Caller ID with the name "Hattie Jackson" at the same time Congress is trying to pass a law to make Caller ID spoofing illegal.

October 19th, 2010 rich p PA

call from "Hattie Jackson" It was a survey from NJ Republican party

October 18th, 2010 Glen71 FL

No message, caller did not leave a message, ID gave Hattie Jackson as the caller.

It is a scam, please do not give them any personal information and report them to the FTC. www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov

September 3rd, 2009 Deborah NC

I had credit card fraud and identity theft done to us about 3 yrs. ago, I lost about 10.000.00 and am still suffering from the fallout of all that, I never got a penny put back into our bank account and I found out who did it and prosucuted them and they were found guilty but I still have never received a dime of our money back and the bank was Bank of America, we had over 2,000.00 worth of overdraft fees which was supposed to be returned to us after the conviction but never was. People that do this to other people should be hung up by their you-know-what. We are honest people and I have been trying to get a grant thru the gov. so naturally I thought this call was ligetimate. please lock them all up!!!!!!!

i would like a grant to exstean my college at mott

March 29th, 2009 RW NY

Called 3/28/09, 11:59am. They left this number, as well as saying I qualified for a grant of 25,000.00. I have not visited the site. Ironically I had just finished filing all our phones and cell phone numbers on the "Do not call registry". Weird. I googled the phone number 202-683-1404 and found many people have also been called. Sounds like a scam to me.

March 28th, 2009 Mike

Call actually came from 202-683-1455, referring me to call this number. While the message was playing, call waiting went off and the same number recorded the same message to my voice mail. Two sales calls to a cell phone on the do not call list. Where is the FTC/FCC on enforcement? Maybe they should apply for a grant so they can hire some staff to take care of this.

March 27th, 2009 Barbara NY

I have recieved two calls from Reguest a grant. The phone number is 202-683-1404.This is a scam. Please do something about these people.

March 25th, 2009 kathy johnson KS

I also received a call from this number.I called this number back and i got a recording saying that i was elgible to received a grant and to leave my name,and address,e-mail address, and they would send me more information. And i could go to REQUEST A GRANT.COM. The phone number that i called was202-683-1404. If this is a scam these people need to be caught and jailed. Times are hard for folks and everybody is looking for help,(good),and there are others that are looking for a profit.I hope they get caught if this is a scam.

March 12th, 2009 Travis Risner

this is a scam

March 4th, 2009 lynda NC

I got a call from requestagrant.com. it said that the govt had 50 million dollars to give away on grants. It took a valid email & phone # to be qualified for a 25,000 grant. It also gave me the Washington, DC phone number.I was tempted but it's too good to be true.

February 26th, 2009 Tracy CA
