I get a call from this number at least a couple times a week. I don't answer. Now I have a fax machine and I sent the call to the fax. Maybe that will stop the calling. Thanks to all who let me know this is a survey company.

Received 6 calls from January 6, 2008 to January 6th, 2008 at various hours of the day and evening. I answered the 3rd call and informed the guy that started talking that I was on the Do-Not-Call (Which aparently our government screwed all of us by allowing these so called 'Research' companies to call us anyway!) the guy on the other end just started laughing and wouldn't say anything. In the background I could hear him making vulgar and rude remarks to his cube mates in the call center. I told him not to call again and to remove my number from their internal call list and hung up. Since then I have received 3 more calls.

Googling this number and company (Bernett Research) reveals that they have done all sorts of things from asking to speak to any woman in the house to even asking to speak to the youngest member of the family! These companies need to be stoped...

They called me late at night and my wife told them to not call back, to place our number on their do not call list. Today, they called me at 7:30 pm and I told them as well. They caled again at 9 pm, and they asked for my wife. When I told them not to call back, they said that until they speak to my wife, that they would call anytime they wanted to, and there is nothing I can do about it.

This number has been calling several times a day for many days with no message and no answer when my husband picks up the phone. We called it back and it is a survey company and have an option for having your phone number removed. Don't know if it works, but we are trying it.

I received a call at 8:55 p.m. on Sunday December 15th asking that I take part in a survey, as it was late and I was on my way to bed I politely responded "No Thank you". The phone was slammed down on my ear. I immediately called back and asked them to remove my number from their list. I hope they call back so I can let them know what I think of them and their employee's.

They called my unlisted number, not on the DNC list. This is extremely rare for us.
Read their website. They operate call centers at 100,000 calls a day for clients, gathering research, direct marketing info and to help taylor advertising for specific campaigns.
Their web site http://www.bernett.com/ says, among other things "...specific Proprietary software allows them to link respondents to company representatives and/or customer service representatives while they are online." THATS NOT GOOD, they can transfer you after you answer.
Note their partners too, they are research and advertising companies.

BTW; My in-law signed up for the DNC list, her phone now rings off the hook with surveys, campaigns and churches doing fund raising, as they now have a good working number YOU gave them. It is also an open invite for 45(?)days during the transition period. Hope it works for you folks.

Did anyone actually read what the Do Not Call List covers? The DNC List does not cover charitable organizations, marketing/survey companies, or companies that you have done prior business with. So if you are getting calls from this particular company (Bernett Research) then the DNC list does not apply to them. However, if you receive a call from them and you tell them to remove your name from their call list and they call back within one year you have the right to sue them. Go to www.fcc.gov to find out more!!

Same as for others here.
See that the company or the person w/ this number calls several times daily (sometimes from 208-822-8073 as well), and yet the person never leaves a voicemail message. The 208-232-8892 number originates from Pocatello,Idaho and the
208-822-8073 one originates from near Boise on the opposite side of the state.

I stand corrected. I went to the DNC website and it says: "If I register my number on the National Do Not Call Registry, will it stop all telemarketing calls?
No. Placing your number on the National Do Not Call Registry will stop most telemarketing calls, but not all. Because of limitations in the jurisdiction of the FTC and FCC, calls from or on behalf of political organizations, charities, and telephone surveyors would still be permitted, as would calls from companies with which you have an existing business relationship, or those to whom you’ve provided express agreement in writing to receive their calls. "

So, go to http://surveys.cybercept.com/dnc/dnc.cgi
you can enter your phone number there to remove you from the calling list.

I worked as a telemarketer for almost 5 years (unheard of in the industry)...as late as 1999, if you were on a Do Not Call list, we were not allowed to call you for any reason EVEN SURVEYS. If they are saying they are exempted they are lying. The only exemption I know of is if it is a business you have established a relationship with. Such as your cable company. Even then, most respect the DNC list.

I've been getting calls from this # 208-232-8892. There is usually nobody on the line when I answer.

Here is what I did to stop all these annoying telemarketing and so called "research" calls.

First, I compiled a list of the #s that were calling constantly and were obviously computer generated. Most of the time nobody was on the line when I answered.

Then I bought a professional referee's whistle. Every time someone responded when I said hello I blew the whistle full blast directly into the receiver for at least 10 seconds.

Almost all the calls have stopped. I think I am now on their "no not call" list.

Caller ID said Bernett Research. Went to their website and submitted a Do Not Call request. Their website explains that the official Do Not Call registry only applies to those who are soliciting money, but it also states that they don't wish to disturb anyone by calling them at home. (How touching.) So I sent an email to their CEO explaining that people who register for the list do so to avoid being disturbed by undesired phone calls (i.e., get a clue! It's about the calls, not the money!) The email addresses are listed on the website, so they are likely bogus, but it felt good anyway.

Just reported them to the DNC registry and also contacted my state attorney with their information (number-address-business name) about their harrassing calls.

Has called approximately every 20 minutes today. Remember that by answering these calls, you are letting them know that someone will eventually pick up and they will continue calling. If you ignore long enough, their system will eventually kick your number out as one that has never connected! I know it sucks, and they should NOT be exempt from DNC lists (which are useless anyway), and we should NOT have to opt-out from these things, but... that's the way things are these days.
