We got a call from this number last week. You answer, say hello a few times to dead air, clicking, and then the line is disconnected. I star 69ed them, got the number, called it, got a bunch of "if you want such and such, press such and such a number". Fortunately, however, one of them was for being taken off of their list. I pushed that button, they said to enter the number I don't want called, I entered it, it was repeated back to me, I pressed the button for it being the right number, and was in effect promised that it wouldn't happen again. Haven't had any more calls from them. I don't know how my number gets on these lists if neither myself nor anyone else in my family put it there. If I ever find out that it's something I'm doing, I'll be sure to stop doing it. Otherwise, Payless Shoes seems to be a pretty reputable outfit. I bought my last pair of shoes there as a matter of fact.

This number called back twice. First time I looked at the caller ID and said the hell with this I don't know who this is. Then instantly they called back. I was annoyed by this time and answered, there was no one there. I said hello 3 times and then hung up. Total time on phone probably 20 seconds. I came online to google the number and this is what I found. I am on the do not call list and I have an unlisted number, so any calls I don't recognise I don't answer.

Caller ID said Payless shoes, but that's bull#@#%! It is a marketing firm in DC. They pretend to be payless shoes, and ask a lot of questions, when you refuse they hang up. Payless shoes was aquired in 2007 by the STRIDE RITE CO......This is total bullsh&^!

CALL CORPORATE AT 877-474-6379 AND ASKED TO BE REMOVED FROM THIS LIST. I BELIEVE THE DEPARTMENT WAS "DCSD". DO NOT LET THE SLAVE WHO ANSWERS THE MAIN SUPPORT LINE DISTRACT YOU! PUSH AND PUSH UNTIL YOU ARE TRANSFERRED TO SOMEONE WHO GETS PAID MORE AND IS AUTHORIZED TO ASSIST YOU.

I WASTED ABOUT 25 MINUTES OF *THEIR* TIME HAVING THIS DONE. IF EVERYONE DOES THE SAME THEY WILL STOP THIS PRACTICE!

REQUEST TO HAVE CORPORATE VERIFY YOUR NUMBER IS IN THE DATABASE. THEY WILL REMOVE YOUR NUMBER AND TAG IT AS DO-NO-CALL TO PREVENT IT FROM BEING RE-ADDED.

GOOD LUCK!

I'm on "do not call" list...I ordered from them, but don't want their calls.

Received a call from this number today. Definitely a do not call violation. I called the number back and received a recorded message. I opted to have my telephone number removed so that they will not call again. We'll see if it works.

Yes, definitely violation of DoNotCall laws. On my call I could press 3 to be removed rather than have to call a separate number. I'm calling Payless corporate tomorrow to complain (just tried, but already closed). If interested as well, their corporate number in Kansas (from website under Corporate/Contact Us is 785.233.5171, 9a-5p Central.

yes a violation of do not call but a DC based call to San Diego with a request to call an 800 number if you want to be taken off. I assume a scam that seems to be going around. When you call back they put you on hold and bill you number.

A recorded ad for a Payless Shoe Store sale.
Probably not Payless itself but some marketer they hired. This was a Do Not Call violation.
