Eastern Research Services is not a true research/survey company. Here is what is posted on their website: "Clients can augment surveys with digitally pre-recorded messages at any point within an interview, playing commercials, music, or concept statements and then immediately resuming the interview." They clearly are in sales, not surveys. They are subject to Do Not Call jurisdiction, despite what they say.

I received a phone call from this number twice this evening and once from 202-534-3124 all with the Caller ID of ER Surveys. I let it go to voicemail twice and on the third time, I got fed up, picked up the phone and got their "automated dialing" noise that was connecting me to someone. The person on the other end of the line asked to speak with my husband (called my husband by name). I told them they could not, but asked who was calling, they said they were Eastern Research Surveys. When I asked them politely to remove our number from their calling list, the kid on the phone told me that he couldn't do that without my husband's permission, since it was HIS name they had on their list. When I pressed further to say that it is MY house and MY phone number as well, he said it didn't matter. He needed my husband's permission to remove our phone number. I find that a bit disconcerting, since there are other people who live in this house and have to live with the phone ringing...despite the fact that my husband might not be home at the time to tell them himself (when I know full well that he would completely agree with me).

I found this site: http://www.easternresearchsurveys.com/donotcall/ that I put my phone number into and it said that it should be removed within 48 hours. Hopefully it will work!

We are a research group ourselves.
We will find your clients that you so rudely refused to name and then hung up on us and we will oppose them until they learn to have respect . Your business will suffer , Their org will fail.
We will find you. We are narrowing the search now. We as well will post your name all over facebook and all other social networks. We will destroy you. If you are ashamed of your "Client or " They are afraid to give their name they need to be bankrupted. Never call anyone without identifying your client or who is receiving the data .

Said they wanted to do a survery on drug awareness. I kindly asked them not to call again. I have received calls recently from another number identified as Omaha, NE wanting the same info. Very annoying.

A different site has this listed as Eastern Research Surveys. Here's the text from their Do Not Call page at http://www.easternresearchsurveys.com/donotcall/ I gave it a shot. We'll see.
---------------------------------------------------------
Welcome to the Eastern Research Surveys do not call list.

Eastern Research Services is a telephone data collection organization trying to contact you for your opinion for a market research or political survey on behalf of multiple organizations. Eastern Research Services is NOT trying to sell you anything. The national Do Not Call registry does not limit calls from or on behalf of political organizations, charities, and telephone surveyors. However, if you wish to have your number removed from Eastern Research Services calling lists, please enter your phone number in the box below and we will remove your number from our calling lists.

For more information about the National Do Not Call Registry and the exemption provided to telephone surveyors, please visit http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/edu/pubs/consumer/alerts/alt107.shtm and search for telephone surveys.

Called at 12:45am. Nice. I never answer unknown calls and they left no voice mail, of course.

Evidently being on a DO NOT CALL list doesn't mean anything to them because they keep calling. Ever since I did that stupid DNC (do not call) I have been getting all sorts of weird phone calls.

I have gotten three calls today. I didn't answer the first two, the third one went to
the answering machine and they hung without saying anything. There has got to be some
way we can stop this sort of thing, evidently being on a DO NOT CALL list doesn't
mean anything to them because they know the Goverment isn't going to penalize them.

I too am getting sick of these calls.. I answered the first one...no one there...now I am getting up to 6 per day and from two different numbers....213-510-7017 and 202-534-3124.

I did some research and found out they are Eastern Research Services, LLC with their headquarters in Pa! Thei phone number is 610-543-9575. Website is www.eastern resources.com.
they buy our numbers from a co. called digit.com. their number is 1-866-225-1956 and there is a message that if You want to be removed from their site to leave a message which I did. Their website is dnc@tmcallerod.com.

I hope this crap gets stopped as I am so sick of it too.

Hope this helps.

Calls several times daily -- every day. Even after I told them not to call, the calls keep coming. I consider this harassment.

They said they were taking a poll regarding music and that if I qualified I could recieve a free card of some sorts. I didn't really answer yes or no to the survey, they went ahead and asked if I had a PC in the home. I answered, they then asked if I had one at my place of work or elsewhere outside of the home. i answered and they said, thank you and hung up. ??
