After reading several of the comments posted, it makes me wonder if the caller may have had something I would actully want to purchase! Maybe we could be left messages such as, "We are calling to offer you a renewal on your current subscription; we will call you back at another time and can respond then if you are interested in participating in this promotion." Polite language and information is so helpful when consumers are trying to screen calls. I miss listening to quality, courtesy sales calls - the ones with the dead air time, not getting my name right, or pretending to be long lost friends are a clue I am wasting my time.

Hey, pays the bills. You're right. I do work for a living. But my job doesn't entail molesting people in their homes. And, yes, I do know the law. Guess what. The fact that it's legal doesn't make it less aggravating or more justifiable. What you do is force yourselves into people's houses without being invited. Having done business with a company isn't a blank check to pester them to death. If anything, a company that respects its customers isn't going to accost them repeatedly with bullshit advertising and junk calls from people with the IQ of a field mouse. But then, I guess you're not calling on behalf of a company that respects its customers, are you? The fact that you're not on welfare doesn't automatically justify an assault on people's privacy.

I finally picked up the phone after"unavailable" called every 10 minutes X 4: Guess they don't care if someone is recovering from surgery, and trying to rest. At least "Sue, from the AFLCIO" got to start her message before I hung up! I too am registered with the "DO NOT CALL" List which doesn't seem to work against these type of calls (including politicions who want me to know their opinion and want me to agree with them).

dave krueger...wow what a mouth you have...but guess what? I have one too. You know funny thing is we work for a living just like you do. I work at Sturner & Klein & am very happy with the service we provide...If impolite lowlife assholes like yourself could pick up a fucking phone & politely say I am not interested, take me off your list then "oh goodness, us lowlifes(is how you put it)" would politely say, I am sorry for the incovenience & we would remove you off the fucking list. How dare you dictate what people are considered low lifes for the fucking jobs they do to support their families & pay their bills just like everyone else. At least we don't purposely sit on our fucking asses & collect welfare or unemployment like alot of lazy sons a bitches out there. Who the fuck are you anyway, God? Nice try, you have no right to judge anyone for who they are or what they do. So who's the lowlife now, you judgemental piece of shit. We are citizens just like you, so have some fucking respect for once in your life. Oh yeah & putting us below serial killers? There's a new one, If you believe morally that us calling to renew your subscription is worse than taking a weapon & murdering someone with it, than you have some real fucking issues you need to deal with pal. #1 We have no control as reps what numbers are dialed or how many times a day they are dialed (It's called an automated dialing system). We don't dial the fucking numbers manually #2 If you weren't such an impatient ass then give it a minute, sometimes there is a delay in when the phone is picked up by you, as to when the call comes through to us. #3 The do not call list as you have already heard, does not apply to companies who have a previous business relationship with their customers, however we would be more than happy to take you off our fucking list, so we never have to talk to fucks like you again. #4 Duh, Don't hang-up, say I'm not interested & hmmm guess what? you won't get another call...dumbass. #5 We do as we are suppose to do & abide by the law, which means we can't leave messages (ever thought about that?) #6 When does the dialer (not us personally) give up? It's simple! The lead we are calling (which is you) doesn't stop being called until there are so many attempts to the number & then it magically dissapears.(if you don't like it, save yourself some time & pick up the phone-we'll identify ourselves, & then you simply say "take me off your list or I am not interested" Easy as that people. So until you follow up on what the fuck your bitching about & learn the laws (as we have rights too) then shut up about it. It really isn't hard.

I've been receiving calls from this company repeatedly over the last few weeks - I have not spoken with anyone or had any messages left.

From what I've read on this site and others they are calling to renew magazine subscriptions.

I used the link from another post on this site to obtain contact information for this company. I called the number listed there - 301-881-2720 - and asked them to remove my number. They took the information and stated that it would take about 24 hours to process. I did not encounter any problems. Only time will tell if it actually worked.

Caller ID: 208-327-1751
Caller: STURNER & KLEIN
Caller Type: Telemarketer

This is a magazine renewal call. The rules for DNC list don't apply here because technically you are a "customer" having already subscribed to a magazine. DNC is only to stop unsolicited calls for new customers. Sturner Klien is considered an "agent" of whatever publishing company wants you to renew so again the call is unfortunately legal. Best thing is to answer, tell them you don't want to renew and have them take you off of their mailing and calling list. Stinks that they call at ridiculous times, but it is the only way to make it stop.

As I suspected they did call again. This time I was here to answer the phone. They were calling about renewing a subscription to Consumer Reports. I informed them that it already had been renewed. They thanked me and said they would update their records.

Interesting that Consumer reports is a non-profit organization and depend on donations to fund their operation. They send out multiple mailings about donations, sweepstakes, subscriptions, etc.. Now they are hiring a telemarketer to bug people about subscriptions. Seems like an odd way to spend donated money.

I wasn't near my phone when this came in and hey didn't leave a voice mail. My number is on the Do-Not-Call list so I ordinarily pick up on these calls so I can get enough information to file an FTC complaint. I've never done business with Sturner Klein. Hmmm, wonder how that would work if a complaint was filed about Sturner Klein (caller ID info) rather than the company they say they represent???? Guess I will have to wait to see if they call again. Oops, I think I just made a joke. Of course they will call again. Their making money off these annoying phone calls.

These jerks call every day. I don't answer. Today they called eight times (so far). That's not telemarketing. That's harassment. The DO-NOT-CALL list is a joke. Congress won't do anything to stop this because it would piss off the lobbyists. Being mere citizens, people like us don't matter. I pay to have a phone, but 95% of the calls I get are ones I don't want and these assholes are the worst. Below they say they are just trying to do their job when they call back after someone hangs up on them. Yeah, a serial killer just does his job, too. You guys are nature's lowest life form (right below serial killers). Get the message assholes! When someone hangs up, it's because they don't want what the fuck you're selling, you morons.

i had subscribed to a garden magazine which has been hounding subscribers to buy a "lifetime membership". They must be going broke imo. I have not renewed so I'll bet that is reason this spammer is hounding me. If I'm correct , a "prior business relationship" gives them an exception to the do not call regs. I hope the new congress revisits that law and tightens it up. worse are the calls that come thru without a number. you cant look them up or report them. That shouldn't be allowed. I have anonymous calls blocked but I suspect they set up their switchboards this way. I just tried to call the number above and got a recodrding that the number is out of service. It was working twenty minutes ago when they called me.

I just called them back, took Option 1 to leave a message, and asked to be removed from their call list. Time will tell if it worked.

if you do not want you phone number or address sold to other companies then when you call to order a magazine then you need to ask them who there mailing list gets givin to. Seriously people we are all just tryin to get back on our feet. im sorry you guys get so many calls but maybe you should answer the phone and say nicely " remove my number from the calling and mailing list". easy peasy! we call for many different magazines let me list a few
National geographics ,outdoor life magazine,lucky magazine.. get my picture we call for hundreds of magazines...
that website or phone number you called to get you takin off the national do not call list if you read the whole thing it does not apply to previous stuff... like if you subscribed to Lucky magazine last year, then this year we are still allowed to call you ask you if you would like to renew. please dont be mad at us just cause we are doing our job.

Caller ID just says, "Idaho". With only that much to go on, I figured they were selling potatoes, you know? Just bought a 5# bag, so I'm set for now. You'd think caller ID could get a little more specific than just the state of origin, but who am I to question the technology of the phone company? Anywho, I never answer these calls but I always check this site to see who it was. This way I know who it is I'm ignoring... Turns out, they are calling for magazine subscription renewals. I guess they're concerned as to why I have somehow "overlooked" the 50,000 subsription renewal cards they've sent. Getting away from a magazine company is like trying to quit the mafia.

Thinking I would get someone I could tell to take me off their list (I am on the DNC list) I called the toll free number and got yet another recording for what apparently is a singles match up. I am happily married & have no desire for such a place. I hung up and am sure more calls will be coming from them until such time an actual person comes on so I can tell them to stop calling.

Prior to registering for the 'Do Not Call List', Sturner Klein called us at least 3 to 4 times weekly. Sometimes asking to talk to me, sometimes asking to talk to my husband...(One time they asked to talk to my cat...Oscar Madison, who had been dead over 7 years!) Now they're calling again! I received the latest call this morning and they asked if I was home. As usual, I said no, I'm sorry she isn't here right now. They asked when would be a good time to call back and I said after 7:00 PM this evening. If they call back, I think I'll take the call just to see who they are and what they want...If I find out anything, I'll post my findings.
