Left the following message: "My name is Steven, and we're calling to complete a survey poll. We're sorry to have missed you and we will try again later".
huug up just as i was answering
I did not answer, just looked up the information on internet. they should not have this number as I give it to no one, no store, no doctor, no person at all except family, ....So how are they getting the number to scam, bother me...??. What low life's, don't they have anything else to do.
Going to report to the Federal Do Not Call Complaint site now and bitch, sure makes you wonder if they ever do anything about this garbage.
Quinnipiac University called me twice last night on my personal cell. I called the number back this morning. To be added to their DO NOT CALL list simply call 203-582-5201
and leave your number. Someone actually answered and promised they would not call back. We'll see what happens.
Quinnipiac Univ - Political Survey... took 12 minutes
They called me on my private cell phone that I only use for family emergencies. Left a voicemail, which I don't see the need to waste minutes to listen to since my private cell phone number is on the DO NOT CALL list. This is B.S. Why should I spend MY money and waste my time on these people? Leave us alone!
They called last night saying that my number was randomly chosen and they wanted me to participate in a survey about current issues. Then she said something garbled and I didn't hear her so I said "I'm sorry, what?" and she hung up on me. Well ok then. They tried again today and I did not answer.
They called me on my CELL PHONE, which I don't give out to ANYONE. (I have a land-line which I specifically use in case it gets on junk-caller lists.)
So, how did they get my phone number, why did they call me, and why do they think it's okay to use my minutes answering their "opinion poll".
My cell phone number is on the FTC Do Not Call List and I reported them.
And to everyone who says I have to send an e-mail or call them or make a special request for them not to call me: why should I have to do this when they shouldn't call me in the first place? If they're really using a randomly-generated list, why not check it against the FTC Do Not Call List before calling people?
They left a message the first time when calling at 6pm stating they where a polling group on behalf of CBS and would be calling back. The second call came in after 9pm. I didn't answer & no message left at that time.

It is a legit polling group from that university and according to Google, oft quoted. It is researchingublic opinion about the campaign currently.
These folks call and leave a message 3-4 times a day. I am not interested and really unclear on where they got my personal cell phone number. However, the man was very nice and simply said they were conducting a public opinion pole. No big deal. Just tell them you are not interested and block the number.
just got a call from this # telling my kid that her phone # had been breached and wanting to know if she was in a safe place, then he said he was from quinnipiac university. Put my wife and kids in a panic. what a bunch of bull shit!
This is Quinnipiac University's polling department. They don't leave a message and make repeated attempts to call whatever number they have on their generated list. If you dial 203-582-5030
, you'll hear a message explaining this, and that they intend to call your number again over the next few days. The message also has a number you can use to request the department cease calling--203-582-5201
. After two days of them calling my cell, I followed through and made the removal request message.

what do these people want
I received a call from this number on 07-13-2010 at 9:08 pm PST which equates to 12:08 AM for the person calling. I live out west. He said his name is John, and he was calling from Quinnipiac University. My question is, why would a university be calling anyone at midnight? I think this guy is trying to scam people.
Public opinion survey on current issues that "randomly" generated my cell phone number.
203 582 3050
Said he calls cell phones "randomly". When I told him he wasn't allowed to call my cell for any reason, without my giving it out first, he argued that he could for a (so-called) SURVEY.
NO, not when I'm paying by the minute!
Unfortunately, land lines voip's etc, are exempt; cell phones are NOT, to my knowledge.
I got a call from this University too. I went off on them. They called my cell and no one and I mean no one gets that number but a few friends and family. My cell and home numbers are both on the DNC list.
If you don't want to be called, email a request or answer your phone to state your wishes. (They aren't open at 8am, by the way.) This isn't rocket science, people, nor are they trying to conceal their identity and "trick" you into taking a survey. Just say no. It's that simple. "No". Try it.

if you listen to the person who calls you you might have a clue. yr number was randomly generated, and then QU attempts to make a call with it. QU does not need to "get your number" from anywhere. plenty of the calls they make are to non-existent numbers b/c they rely soley on randomly generated ones. if you don't want QU calling just tell them. its easy.
they actually left a msg the first time about some survery - they've now called 5 times in two days any where from 8 am to after 9 pm. i'm registered on the do not call list so i'm rather puzzled. also i do NOT give out my cell number to ANY type of company, survery ect. My cell is for emergency purposes only.
If u don't get answered and don't leave a message, u won't get a reply...If unknown ID, u'll never get answered...Get a hint & stop calling cuz u'r call as good as no call to me--u'll always be ignored.
FYI:...Sorry, The National Do Not Call Registry does not limit calls by political organizations, charities, or telephone surveyors.
they've called twice since 5:00PM. I'm not answering.
Picked up on 3rd ring, No one on line
Called twice, left no message on voice message.
I called this number, heard their message, but could not leave a message on their system. So, I started pushing numbers. I finally pushed the correct combination of numbers (I don't remember the combination, I was so disgusted at the time) and left a message for the Information Security Officer. Lets see if he calls back.
I find the vulgarity of many of the messages posted quite interesting. I was left a polite, yet annoying message, with an apology. If, in fact, the call was to perform a poll on current issues, the spelling, language and poor grammar in the postings would lead me to believe most of you don't have two functioning brains cells to rub together, let alone enough sense to form a coherant, informed opinion on anything with the exception of NASCAR. Pop open another beer and plop down on the sofa, the race is about to start. And before I forget, how is the weather in West Virgina?
Whomever this is calls at least once or twice a day -I am usually in the middle of something, have to drop what I am doing only to find this number showing on the caller ID. I do not answer it - but I do wish they would get a clue. Here are the clues: no answer, must have caller ID and must not want to talk to them. They never leave a message. I wish they would realize after so many calls, that their calls are not wanted and to keep harassing me with them day after day isn't going to change things - I don't want to talk to someone who can't leave a message, and to be bothered to talk to someone I do not know or wants to sell me something. Get a life, if I need something, I know how to dial the phone and order it myself, and if it is a pollster, get real - that information is my business - no one elses!
