It seems that this number has become active again after nearly a two year hiatus.

Back in 2010, it was used to deliver a screed against the U.S. Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (aka "Obamacare"). As mentioned in the earlier comment (from August 2010), the caller asked him to press 1 to sign a petition against the Act.

Today, this number is being used by the "Independent Survey Group" to conduct a prize pitch scam ("free cruise") disguised as a political survey. The same scam is also being conducted from several phone numbers. If you have room in your call block list, you could add these:

I keep getting these calls from 360-xxx-xxxx, this one is 360-322-6030 as "out of area" on June 26. Every one I have answered has been a scam. The name is usually reported as Ind Sur Group although sometimes it comes up as a mis-spelling of that or as "unknown" or "out of area". It's a fake survey to "win a cruise from our sponsor". It's may actually be a way for you to part with your private data and MAYBE buy a cruise - I don't know, I never get that far - but others' report it so. NEVER give your personal information to ANYONE over the phone! You do NOT know who is on the other end! Other numbers I've reported include:
425-390-8930 on June 29 as Ind Sur Group
360-460-1844 on June 28
360-461-4559 on June 20,
360-474-3936 on 6-18-2012,

206-496-0953 on June 11,
360-474-3915 on June 7,
503-457-1368 as Ind Sur Groiup on June 4, and
206-496-0946 as Ind Sr Group on May 31.

There were more prior to that but I'd already erased them. It is NOT a survey, it is an attempt to sell you a cruise. It starts with a teaser recorded message that you can win a cruise from one of their sponsors if you just take a survey. Press one to talk, press nine to be removed from the calling list. They obviously got the message wrong - it should be "press 9 to get ON to our SUCKER list." Atlanta, GA area.

They have called from 3 different numbers about 6 times in the last 2 weeks. First, they would just hang up on me. Then, they did a survey followed by a cruise "offer." Supposedly if you press 2 they will take you off their list. We will see. Caller ID says IND SUR GROUP.

Scam - but how do you stop them from calling? they also use 2 other phone numbers 206-496-0953 and 360-474-3921). They want money up front. Don't know if they are really selling anything or just taking your money. they need to be stopped. I've reported to the FCC.

Robo call supposedly taking a political survey. Anyone doing the survey qualifies for a "free cruise". Yeah, right. What a bunch of low lifes.

lawlady,
Wish I had good news for you. The FTC / DNC is as big a fraud as the telemarketers that ignore the "law". The government does very little and is useless when it comes to enforcing DNC. Just wait until they manage your health care. Government at the Federal level is bad at virtually everything it does. When are we ever going to learn?

I filed a complaint against these folks this morning. Anyone that has recieved calls from these scammers should also file complaints and maybe we can hit these folks where it hurts, in their pocket books.
They will have to pay a fine for each and every time they have called. Enough complaints can bring hurt them financially, and slow them down, if not put them out of business.
Sadly, they can get another phone number and start the process again, but not without paying out the ass first.
It is our only line of defense, so use it~ it only takes a couple of minutes
just click on the "file a complaint" at the link at the bottom of this page.

These flaming dickheads are now calling my cell phone while I am at work; I guess calling my home number was not enough for these nefarious bastards! They pose as a political survey but that is just a ruse and they are really telemarketing a "free cruise" that they will charge you for, and want your credit card info. You do the math. Is this a legitimate operation? NOT! If you press the number to be removed from their calling list, then you have just confirmed that your number is a live one and you can expect to get many more calls. Do not answer, do not give them any information, and block these numbers if you can. They are ignoring the Do Not Call list to do their telemarketing, so nothing they say or do is legitimate.

I thought I'd already reported this one. But they also have 360-474-3915 and probably more because I've been receiving multiple calls daily from solicitors with various caller IDs for the past 4-6 weeks. Pete and R are correct. Fake survey, sell cruise, callback unavailable.

They called my home yesterday, cell phone today. They want you to take a 30 second political survey. Something like: Should French Fries be illegal, yes or no. As a reward for doing the survey, you won a free cruise. That's right, a free cruise. All you have to pay is a small processing fee. They use the survey to evade the do-not-call list rules. They are selling you a cruise....

Cell phone took this call while I was asleep (work nights). Washington state. No message. What are they doing calling a cell phone? We must have the best government money can buy if we can't get these calls to stop. The "Do Not Call List" seems to do nothing. From Wall Street to Main Street, if you have money, you can get away with anything you want.
