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:

206-462-1812
206-496-0948

This was a prize pitch scam (for a resort vacation/cruise) masquerading as a political opinion survey on the upcoming U.S. presidential election.

They are trying to get around the DNCL regulations by calling themselves a "market research" company. Quite a scummy tactic!

Automated call. Callback to number from caller ID indicated that the number was temporarily unavailable and to try again later. My phone number is on the "do-not-call list".

They call me all the time, despite my being on the DNC list. Today when they called I picked up and they hung up.
