They called my cell phone -- I did not pick up as I was driving at the time. No message left.
It's 10:33 pm, and I was in bed. With elderly, out of state in-laws, it gave a jolt to hear it ringing,
Said they were some research company looking to ask residents of NH a few questions... it was 10:17 pm!
there not telemarketers they DONT SELL ANYTHING just do surveys.thats why the DNC LIST DOESNT apply to them. SOMETIMES THEY EVEN GIVE STUFF TO U FOR DOING IT.
........... Jul 14th, 2010
Just take the survey, half the time you will get an incentive. And trust me, it is legit. I do lots of surveys for these guys. Quit bickering!

According to Dante there is a special ring in the Inferno reserved just for scoundrels like these.....
DIDNT ANSWER...THEY LEFT NO MESSAGE..
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.
They keep calling and never leave a message
called 3 times, first 2x we never answered they never left a message, 3rd time when we answer the phone they hang up.
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.
Called on 5 Jan 08 @ 3:24 pm cent time. did not leave message
why they call i have no idea ........ you answer they hung up, you dont answer and they leace no message
Why they call Jan 05th, 2008
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.
Have received calls for the last 3 days from this number (12-15 thru 12-17). No messages left. Just wondering who this is.
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.
Called two days in row. No message
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.
called over and over within 15 minutes....never left message....im on do not call registery
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!!
They have been calling me every day (except weekends) around 8 pm my time(Arizona). When I pick up the phone there is no one there!
Who is this and what do they want. Do they just listen to you when you answer? HELP! How annoying!
I don't know how they get around the "No Call" List, but more and more have found a loophole.
I just don't answer if I don't recognize the number or let it go to voicemail.
they call daily in my state on indiana its against the law to call a number who on the do not call list.
Keep getting random calls from these people. I never answer.
Did not answer as I Didn't Know that number and they left no message but since found this site for reports of calls.....hopefully they will NOT call back !!!
Go to bernettresearch.com, click on remove me from call list. enter your phone #. calls stop within 2 days max.
its all a front. collection agency GC Services using surveys as fronts to get information on spouse/debtor/whoever they are looking to see if people still live there. tell them theres no other person here.
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
one originates from near Boise on the opposite side of the state.

didn't answer- didn't leave a message
Have called here repeatedly, 6 times in one day... finally answered. Said they were Christian R from Burnet Survey. Told him we do not do surveys and to take our number out of the database. Said he was doing it then. We'll see.
Started calling 9/25. Caller ID says Idaho. Called 5 times on 1 day. Never leaves msg.
Got a call from them at 7:25 PM. Answered, but there was no resonse. The line remained open about 20 seconds, then they hung up. I'm getting an awfully lot of these calls lately. Why???
Called. Unknown. Left no message.
I also get multiple calls from these people--I just called -800-370-5402
and got a real person who said he would "make sure" I get taken off the list.
Called 6 times no message
called but did not leave a message
they called i said hello several times no one said a word and i hung up
Have received calls twice. First time they didn't leave a message. Second time I answered and then hung up. I'm on a "do not call list". I thought telemarketers calling randomly was illegal now.
called by this number at 8:20 on sunday 10-07. Pocatello, ID 208-232-8892. I answered, they hung up.
keeps calling no message!!
Did not answer.. did not leave a message
Calls several times in a row. VERY ANNOYING! They never leave a message or hang up before the answering machine kicks on.W e do not answer unknown callers--especially if they will not leave a message or hide their caller ID.
They have called 3 times in the last week, each time after 8 PM. I don't pick up because I don't know the number. No msg left
They call me several times a day beginning at 8:30 in the morning. I do not answer and they do not leave a message.
They do in-home product testing then follow up with a phone call.
let answering machine pick up they hung up.
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.
Got a call this morning the guy was niced so I took his survey and he is sending me a dvd to watch (some Sitcom) and they said something about $10 for doing it so cool with me.
Did not answer since I did not recognize the number. They called right back a couple minutes later.
keeps calling 3-5 times each day, no message. I don't answer because I don't recognize the name, or number
Told me I'd get $ 25.00 to answer questions about banks. I answered questions, then told me I did not qualify.
Called 9/11/2007 4:28 pm
Bernett Research, did not leave a message. Why can't they just stop calling! No one wishes to speak to them, ever!
I am on Federal Do not call list. This number calls up to 4 times per day, and hangs up.
Peter Urberg Sep 09th, 2007
Go to Bernett Research web site and there is a "remove me from your calling list" area.
Go to www.Bernett.com and select REMOVE NUMBER and get off the, already!
Frickin' Harris Interactive Reseach -- they're taking polls
We get calls day and night from this company. I have spoken with a "supervisor" and have demanded to be taken off of the calling list. She agreed. The calls continue to come. What can I do?
Go To: http://surveys.cybercept.com/dnc/dnc.cgi
You can request to have your number removed & it's supposed to take 12-72 hours. We'll see. They call twice a day.
Bernett Research-didn't answer, won't stop calling.
Repetitive calls with no messages left.
This number 208-232-8892 called 6 times yesterday between 9:15 AM and Noon, while I was at doctor's. They left no messages on the answer machine. They've called twice today, and left no message, so I have blocked the number.
got a call from this number 208-232-8892, dont answer numbers I dont know or any so called research place.We have a private unlisted phone number..they called themselves Bernett research s. gona go buy me a whistle for next time they call.
Answer the phone with a business name and they remove you from their list!
I answered the phone with my name. She said, "Is this a business?" I answered affirmatively. She apologized for calling and hung up.
called, mentioned Capitol One, vague, wanted to ask me some questions. I'm on the do not call list so I told him DON'T CALL ME!
Called at 2:00pm on a Sunday and again at 11:32am the next day, (Monday). Didn't answer either time. We are on the "no call list".
I screen my calls and any number that doesn't specify a company or individual do not get answered and is sent to voice mail. They have so far called twice today, several times yesterdy.
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.
I answered, as this # had called before. They wanted to do a survey and I said NO and DO NOT call me again.
they asked for the lady of the house and then hung up when I said there wasn't one in this house.
208-232-8892 Jun 22nd, 2007

Saw "Unknown Name" didn't answer. They didn't leave message. Here's their website http://www.bernett.com/ On the "contact page" is "Remove Me from your call list" link. I e-mailed owner and told them I'd pursue all legal recourses if they ever called me after 30 days from today.
Called 4 times today. Told her to take me of their list
we answer and they constantly hang up?!?!
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.
Called. Wasn't home, never left a message
Bernett Research, dude wanted to do a survey and asked if anyone was between 18 and 65. Isn't that almost everybody? Didn't know who he was working for.
Just reported them to the DNC registry and also contacted my state attorney with their information (number-address-business name) about their harrassing calls.
Today, they have called my home 15 times in less than 3 hours never leaving messages and hanging up when I did finally pick up the phone to request they stop harrassing me and my home.
These people are calling 2x a day. I'm sick of it!
stated that they were doing a research study and that they would pay 85$ for two hours, on health care topic, im a nurse????is this place legit???
Mutiple calls in previous week. First this week, Monday, June 4, 2007. No messages left. I am on up to date Federal, State WI) and Cell Phone "No Call" lists.
Called multiple times w/ computer voiced message asking for someone other than myself
They called and I answered, they asked me some questions about if I had read various magazines. Then they asked me if I would read an issue of Oprah's magazine on a specific day and then they would call the next day and ask what I thought of it.
Got three calls in a row from this number, indicated as Bernett Rsrch S on my caller id. Called the number back and heard an automated message with instructions on how to get your number off of their list.
This person that called, souded as if it were her first day and was trying to ask questions on behalf of Wachovia, trying to get my bank information.. Extremely Sketchy! Did not offer information and ended call
called 3 times today. no message. maybe if we emailed management directly ...
Called twice this morning. Didn't recognize the number, no name. It's from Idaho?
THEY CALL EVERY DAY, IN ONE HOUR 4 TIMES
Call from Pocatello, Idaho. Never met Peekaboo Street so did not pick up phone. They left no message. Figured it was a telephone solicitation
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.
