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!
