YOUR TELEMARKETERS FROM WASHINGTON D.C. WHO JUST CALLED US THIS AFTERNOON @ 4:40PM SEEM TO BE RUNNING THESE RIDICULOUS TIGHT SHIFTS SUCH AS COLD CALLING CUSTOMERS EVERY MINUTE WITHOUT ANY CHANCE TO TAKE ANY BREAKS TO TELL US WHY THEY'RE CALLING AND HANGING UP BEFORE WE CAN ANSWER THEM!

Caller ID = UNAVAILABLE. Well, I was unavailable for their call, but I answered anyway (but never said "Hello"). Because they called during the news hour, I simply put my phone near the TV's speaker and let the caller listen to the TV. I never talked to them; only put the phone to my ear; only held it next to the TV speaker. After a couple of minutes, I hung up. They hadn't hung up on me, so they must have enjoyed listening to the news!

"Hello this call is from the National Opinion Surveys Organization. This is not a sales call and your responses will remain annonymous. I have a few question about the issues in your area in our country and will take no longer than 5 minutes." These are recorded questions where you answer by providing input from the phone keypad. If you input something other than what the computer is expecting the message starts over again. Was working on my PC so I had a little time between keystrokes so I kept giving invalid inputs. Finally had to give up after 31 minutes of preventing them from annoying other people.

Female voice said national @@@@@ survey this is not a sales call but we are looking for your opinion on @@@@@ issues asked question I couldn't understand with several options for answers. Pause then a beep. Male voice says that is not a valid answer. Of course not machine voice, I'm not home. Female voice starts question ove but answering machine ran out of patience and disconnected the call. @@@@@= unintelligible words.

Robo Call. Credit card scam. Fake political survey. Fake free cruise offered. If you pay the processing fee, your card will be charged to the limit. ANswering or attempting to opt out tells their system that a human answered, and they sell your information to other scams.

Have no idea who this is but have had them call me 4 times in the last 45 minutes. I have the number blocked for a long time and all they get is a busy signal but did talk to someone who had gotten this call about 5 minutes before I did and she said it is a recoding and she hung up so have no idea what it is about. I can bet I will get it again in about 10 minutes.

I received a call from a company that said they were researching the presidential election and wanted my opinion 7:10 pm PST Thursday night, April 18, 2012.

They asked if Obama was doing a good job. I could select 1: Yes 2: No 3: No opinion
They asked my opinion on a large number of political items.They asked how old I was.
They asked if I was Conservative, Moderate, or Left Wing Radical Communist Democrat.
They asked if I was affiliated with a union. They asked me who I would vote for.
They asked what my race was.
This was to a phone number for a voter in Washington State.

I answered every question, letting them know that I would not vote for Obama or any Democrat!

I checked the phone number on Google.

One reply was from a Wisconsin reporter July 14, 2011 that said: the telephone number that displayed when the call was received — 202-974-8147. It’s a Washington, D.C., number and when called, a message simply says the caller has reached the AFL-CIO.

It is NOT their phone, but OURS. They dont pay my phone bills ..........the IDIOTS !

This call was an automated survey. The first question was whether I was going to vote, I think, this November. Unfortunately one of the options for an answer was not that it was none of their business so I just pushed the # sign. I did find that if I answered their questions numerous times with responses that were not in their options they would eventually say that you have exceeded the number of answers and the call would disconnect. The caller ID did show the number but the name was unavailable. Guess they are ashamed of who they are, or they are afraid if people know who is calling they won't answer, or the just aren't sure who they are themselves. I had a little time to play so I answered. All my answers were invalid so maybe it will skew their survey a little. Got to get back to working with my State legislator on drafting a State bill to prevent these calls to anyone on the National do-not-call list.

IF YOU FOLKS WOULD TAKE THE TIME TO READ SOME OF THE MESSAGES PRIOR TO ENTERING YOUR RANTINGS, YOU WOULD SEE THE INFO BELOW. IT WAS ENTERED ONTO THIS SITE BACK IN DEC 2009. I CALLED THE PHONE # SHOWN AND REQUESTED THAT THEY REMOVE MY # FROM THEIR CALLING LIST. THE PERSON WITH WHOM I SPOKE WAS VERY HELPFUL AND POLITE. UNFORTUNATELY, THEY ARE EXEMPT FROM THE 'DO NOT CALL" REGISTRY. BUT THEY DO AGREE TO REMOVE PHONE NUMBERS MANUALLY, OR HOWEVER IT'S DONE. SINCE THE CALLS ARE OF THE ROBOPHONE TYPE, THERE WILL BE A DELAY UNTIL THE PHONE # IS PHYSICALLY REMOVED.

Opinion pollsters & political hacks are not considered "telemarketers" and therefore the "Do Not Call List" rules do not apply, even though they are a bigger nuisance. The DNC List needs to be revised to include surveys, polls etc.

Someone taking a survey on conditions in my area. Hung up. Put the number in my computer software program "PhoneTray" which will now answer this number with a prerecorded messages saying I don't participate in surveys and make sure my number is on their do no call list because the next call will be reported to the FCC.

It Cost $5.00 @ Month to Add Call Intercept To Your Phone Service (VERIZON CUSTOMERS) All Others Check With Your Phone Service Provider You can Permently Block Out These Bullshit Callers. You Have To Block Every Number These Pricks Use. Now After 3 Months I have to Say I Got 1 Call And All I Did Was Add The Number To My Blocked Call List. 99.9% of These Callers Are Not Going To Waste Time Because They Use Auto Dialers So They Do Not Have to Pay People. Look At it This Way Its Now Cheaper Than a Pack Of Ciggaretts!

They called in the middle of church on Sunday. They called me twice. The second time that I answered, there was a mechanical voice that said Hello, and that is it. I called back to find out who was calling me, and it said to leave a message, but, of course, their message box was full.VERY ANNOYING.

This calls have to stop. When we answer, no one is there but even after hanging up, the line is tied up for several minutes. This is especially irritating because this is a business line and the people here are paid to work, not answer politicians surverys. Thanks to you to all the politicians who set-up the "DO NOT CALL REGISTRY"; why am I not surprised that the politicians think the rules are for everyone but them???

Another political call. . .THANK YOU to all you politicians out there who listened to the American people when they signed up on the DO NOT CALL REGISTRY. I am glad that you heard all of us when we said we were sick and tired of all these calls. All you have accomplished by making these phone calls is to guarantee you will not receive my vote. If you cannot listen to something so simple as the people saying they do not want the calls then what makes us think that you will listen to us when it is a really important matter.

This group continues to call us, and even when I asked them to put us on the Do Not Call list, the man on the other end ignored me and continued to ask if he could speak to my wife. I've filed a complaint with the Washington state Attorney General's Office and will file a police report if it continues.

I got this call at 7:26pm. The recorded message asked questions about FL Rep. Ron Klein, candidate Alan West, and President Barack Obama. At the end, there were questions about if anyone in the household belongs to or has belonged to a union. The message said the company was National Opinion Surveys, 202-637-5249. My callerid said 202-974-8147. I did a reverse phone number look-up on FREEALITY, and both numbers are registered to land lines in Westchester, DC.

We received a few calls from 202-974-8147. Even though we are in the no-call-list. It is a recorded message from Working Americans who is conducting a survey.

I googled WorkingAmerica and called them at 202-637-5137. They removed me from the calling list. I really dislike telemarketer, especially those with recorded message.

Working America, left-wing-nuts, Inc. They're like ACORN on crack. What a waste of my tax dollars, they give respectable scammers a bad name, as if there is such a thing. You can complain all you want but I doubt Uncle Charlie will have any power over a fellow gov't entity that disappears as soon as you try to call them back. Just upgrade your phone plan to include call blocking or auto forward their number to another scammer.

The caller is Working America, which is a grassroots movement to create an aggregate union of working people in order to establish political power by controlling a large block of voters. They are, not surprisingly, affiliated with the AFL-CIO. They're NOT associated with the Democratic party; in fact, their agenda is much farther to the left (and completely unrealistic) than most of us damned liberals. Among other things, they want legislation guaranteeing a "living wage" for all jobs, with a minimum wage much higher than warranted by the skill set needed for many occupations.

They are also pests. They had a door-to-door campaign going a few years back and showed up at my house a number of times, even though I told them "no thanks," every time.

Now you can decide it you want to deal with them.

I work for the USPS as a mail carrier. I'm a union member. I got a call today from this # informing me that Al Franken had officially been declared the winner over Norm Coleman in the MN senatorial race. (No duhhhh, dipshits! U think I live under a rock?!) The recorded message wants The Hammer 2 get on Gov. Pawlenty's ass 2 sign this or that. Anyway, based on the content of the message, I'm guessing the # can be traced to a Democratic think-tank/interest-group or whatever they are called.
