''Political Survey'' is their excuse to circumvent the National Do Not Call regulations. Robo-call says: ''Hello this is John from Political Opinions of America, you have been carefully selected to participate in a short 30 second research survey and for participating you will a free 2 day cruise for 2 people to the Bahamas courtesy of one of our supporters.

Called my do-not-call cellphone. Hello, this is John, from Political Opinions of America. I hung up after that.

Political Opinions of America

Thursday, 29 March 2012


Political Opinions of America begin with a political survey and then offer for free a cruise from Caribbean Cruise Lines that you have to pay for. These cruises are provided by Celebration Cruise Lines. These scumbags masquerade as a political organization to get past the TCPA, the FTC and FCC. They call, try to get you to take a political survey so they can try and sell you a cruise.

http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-954-567-9353


you answer a quick survey, then they tell you to please hold for Carnival Cruises, then they go on about a lovely vacation in the Bahamas, and its completely FREE, however, they need your credit card to pay for the taxes

These folks hide their identity and are not licensed in any jurisdiction I can find with the DBAs Political Opinions of America or POA and their Legal Counsel conveniently refuses to accept service for any legal action against them. Their domain registration is cloaked and their website has no contact information.


Sanscrainte may think he is sly, but there is one thing that he overlooked. His client utilizes caller id spoofing (putting misleading information on the caller id). I could make an easy case of misrepresentation on that alone.

http://www.fcc.gov/guides/caller-id-and-spoofing

Personally, I suspect Political Opinions of America are Caribbean Cruise Lines.

There are literally hundreds or even thousands of complaints about these scumbags all over the Internet. I have found no DBA/Corporate filings for [Political Opinions of America], [POA] or any variation in Florida, Delaware, New York or any other place that I can find.

They own and operate PoliticalOpinionsofAmerica.org and PoliticalOpinionsofAmerica.com which are hosted in Florida and use a domain registration cloaking service provided by godaddy aka Domains by Proxy.

The closest thing to an address of service would be their legal counsel that sent a response to a complaint about their activity.

Here is their attorney threatening one person that complained with a claim for cost for litigation:


My client, PoliticalOpinionsOfAmerica.org, has shared with me your email in which you threaten legal action against it based upon the Telecommunications Consumer Privacy Act, the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, and/or the Federal Do Not Call Registry.

PoliticalOpinionsofAmerica.org does not engage in any activity that falls under Federal telemarketing/telephone statutes (i.e., the Telephone Consumer Protection Act and the Federal Trade Commission’s Telemarketing Sales Rule). PoliticalOpinionsOfAmerica.org delivers political opinion and survey calls, and these are exempted under these federal statutes/regulations. In addition, PoliticalOpinionsOfAmerica.org does not engage in any activity that falls within the pertinent statutes of the State of Colorado. Accordingly, any action that you file against my client would be frivolous, and thus subject to a claim by my client for its costs associated with defending against same.

My client also immediately complies with any request to opt-out of any future calls delivered by my client, even though under Federal and State law, it is under no obligation to do so. Accordingly, if you have asserted an opt-out request, your telephone number has already been added to my client’s internal Do Not Call list. In any event, as of my writing of this email, your phone number has in fact been placed on my clients internal Do Not Call list.

This correspondence in no way provides you with permission or authorization to serve notice upon me or my office with regard to any action you may file against my client.

Here is what the New York City Bar Association had to say when Joe wanted to be a judge:


Joseph W. Sanscrainte
Not approved by reason of the candidate’s failure to affirmatively demonstrate that he possesses the requisite qualifications for the court for which he is a candidate

Personally, I would never use Caribbean Cruise Line because their representative, Political Opinions of America, in my opinion are are scum.

Dragt, please make yourself stop. No one else reading this page can revoke consent to call on your behalf. Dumping the same plea on this site three times in three minutes and providing no new information for the readers is helping no one.

Greg, your post sounds more like an endorsement for google voice than a real post offering info on a"scammer" -- you mention google voice 3 times and never tell us anything about the calls. You sound like the scammer to me. If you aren't, then look around and get another carrier. My carrier not only has a call block feature, it puts the caller id up on my television so I can see it before I answer if I happen to have the tv on. I'm sure you can find similar carriers, just look around.

This scammer keeps calling despite my phone being on the no call list. The only number I share is my Google Voice number. At least then, I can choose to block the caller. My real home phone does not have a blocking feature. The carriers could easily add this feature, but we are not treated as customers; we are sales leads for their commercial customers. I can have my home phone forwarded to my Google Voice number and block it there. I have done this from time to time and it can help.

Look into The free service provided by Google Voice. I have blocked many unwanted calls. I also block businesses when I find out they shared my number.

Some sort of a survey.

When I called them back, I had to dial 2 twice to get removed. The first time failed.

I am sure the company will call back.

I no longer answer unknown phone numbers and block these numbers so I have greatly cut down on this crap.

How can these SOBs call my cell which has been added to the Do Not Call List? I don't give my cell # to just anyone.

Richard, yes it did activate something else! Told them it's a valid number which they'll now keep calling as well as give to other scammers/phishers! NEVER answer a call you don't know and NEVER push any numbers. If you DO inadvertently answer one of these calls, just hang up on them.

Was slected to take short survey, and win a trip to the bahamas, push 9 to decline and be taken from call list. Worried that pushing the 9 button activated something else.

Called after 8 p.m. Rang 5 times and hung up before machine could kick on. Caller ID said Unknown Name. I don't answer unknown names but the hang up was so quick one wonders why they bother to call and after 8 p.m. on a Friday night is a nuisance.

If telemarketers call on your cell phone, file a report with the FCC.gov under 'Wireless' and complete the questions.
If you speak to them, if it's a recording or live call, DOCUMENT everything! Make sure your phone numbers are registered on the FTC.gov DO NOT CALL webpage (instructions and info are all there). You will get a confirmation email from the FTC and filing a report for cell phone nuisance calls you will receive a confirmation number after submitting a completed complaint.
Most of all, don't get too upset because it's not worth it.

They called late at night while people are sleeping. They wanted me to take part of a survey & i hung up after that. I don't like when these people call, especially when they are trying to go to sleep.

They left no message. It's a common tactic. The goal is merely to reach your voice mail in hopes that the recording includes your name. That's vital information for telemarketers. Then they take that name and number combination and sell it to other telemarketers. Neat trick, ay? You should never have your full name in the voice mail greeting.

If I don't know the number or it shows up TOLL FREE.. I DO NOT ANSWER IT! No one should answer unidentified calls! If we don't answer them they will eventually learn that hiding behind an unidentified phone number is NOT going to get them the responses they are looking for. Also... REPORT callers like this to the NDNCR! No matter who they are or why they are calling! If you include specifics of your experience with callers such as these jackalopes eventually the Feds will do something about them for us. They seem to move faster on numbers with higher complaints so the more we complain about a number the faster something will be done about them!

didn't answer, caller ID works for me. On DO NOT CALL list, for what reason I don't know, it doesn't seem to work.
