When you call the number back there's a message that says

Very Very Annoying!!! Call over and over and over to my work. Wants names of executives. Wants to talk to "live" person in Marketing. Over and over they call. They will not leave a voicemail or message for anyone, want to speak to someone live. They are pushy, and keep calling back, trying to get a VP or something to answer a phone.
VERY annoying.
I don't care for that company at all.

Called CMP Media & they (of course) deny they are responsible for the calls.
I told them to check their marketing with respect to telemarketing policies & outsourcing to this offending company.
I told them to check this & other sites for the 1000's of complaints & asked if THAT'S good business.

I will certainly NEVER do any business with them until they STOP harrassing people in this manner (up to 10 calls per day

They call my office phone daily (FOUR times yesterday!!), never leave a message; caller id sometimes is 213-537-1383 & sometimes is 1-213-537-1383 leading me to believe it's an alias or relay number. If you attempt to dial it back, it either rings several times or there is a 30 second pause then turns "busy".
This is one of the LOWEST of lowlifes!

Have traced references to:

VAR Business Magazine
213-537-1383

parent company is CMP Media, crn.com

I don't know how accurate this info is, only that they are attempting some sort of extortion and/or

identity theft

Call from this number on multiple days to my work phone number. Left no message. There needs to be some sort of penalty for these unwanted calls.

They've called me 4 times in the last 24 hours. Never leave a message. I force them to my voicemail when I see their number, and the message was only 2 seconds long... and it was just dead air.

Whoever keeps calling me speaks almost no English and they call me 3 times a day at work. I've asked them to stop calling, but they obviously have a hard time understanding English.
