Thanks to Ronin for offering everyone your Tagalog cuss as a response to these hook-nosed bastard call center jackrings!

You do know that these guys are just trying to earn an honest living... Right? why not give them a minute or so, so they can move on. As long as what they say is true about the subcription is free.. Then go ahead, Annoying yes.. But it's better than some credit card company increasing your APR for no apparent reason..

Just like before, these people have started calling my cell phone nonstop... AGAIN.
Even if I would decide to answer, which I don't anymore, they would just hang up on me anyways.
Luckily, I don't hear it when they call anymore since I saved their number(s)
into my phone under 'Telemarketer-Do NOT Answer' and put a Silent ringtone for them.
Found that they called my cell number 12 times between 4 AM CST and 1 PM CST today. 4 AM!?
Guess it's time to contact the Attorney General's office in California and
see what they have to say about this gross violation of the Fed's DNC list...

Keep getting calls from (213)537 1439. Sent an email to remove my number from database to Spark as per my lawyer's recommendation, if they still call me, will have no choice but to take Legal action. Good Luck

Well, I'm STILL receiving ongoing calls from 213-537-1438 & 213-537-1439 and every time they hang up & never leave a message. As with other Telemarketer numbers, I do NOT answer them any longer & have saved the numbers into my cell phone under "TELEMARKETER#-Do NOT Answer" (Where # is a 1, 2, 3, etc) & chose a Silent Ring for them, so it doesn't ring & wake me up or bother me. I have done the same with past numbers as well, as this has saved me a lot of time & trouble wondering who the hell is calling me at 3 AM! These calls are coming in at all hours of the day & night, so I'm guessing it's an automated system. As my cell number is listed on the Do-Not-Call list, I WILL be reporting these ongoing disturbance calls immediately to the FCC. Also, the owner of this number is Spark Marketing, Jonathan Adler, Adler Enterprises, 8001 Irvine Center Drive, 4th Floor, Irvine, CA 92618 Tel # 949-754-3044, Fax # 949-754-4441, Mobile # 818-219-9205, and his email is: jon.adler@sparkcallcenter.com / This LANDLINE number is issued by TCAST COMMUNICATIONS, INC., Location: LSAN DA 01, CA area. But... their call centers are located in the Phillipines. Oh, and if you do decide to answer, just scream "Putang-ina-mo, Bak-la Ung-goy!" really loudly, then hang up. :-P

Keep getting calls on my cell phone. Last call was at 8:47 AM EST which is 5:47 AM in Los Angeles (213 is a LA area code) so I was saying "WTH?". Bothersome to say the least.

These people called the office yesterday and today wanting to renew free subscriptions for my employers. They do not speak fluent english and sound like telemakers from India. I told them I could not verify the information over the phone and asked them to mail the info. The second guy was really pushy. I assure you my boss knows how to renew a subscription, ie. he gives it to me to fill out. If thid company is legit why does the caller id say Survey???

Get calls a few times daily - never leaves a message - finally called them back. Their message says they are Spark Marketing - a telesurvey company which conducts surveys for industry specific magazines. Would like to get them to stop

Got called today 8-20-08 at work, I was on another line but saw the number. If it is for CRM that may make sense as I'm in the IT field.

This number continues to call once a day for the last 4 weeks. the few times I've answered they just hang up. I assume it's an auto dial machine that is rotate dialing numbers to determine when people are home. With this info, they can determine whom answers and and at what times so they can sell this info to direct marketing companies. DO NOT answer the phone when this number calls and block it if you can.

Offered free magazine subscription and was dumb enough to stay on the line and answer all kinds of crazy questions. Asked to be removed from call list but who knows whether or not they will...

Received a call they stated they were with Meeting & Conventions Magazine and were offering a free subscription. I ended the call and told them we didn't want any magazines.

1st call today from these idiots. Expect to recieve many more. Don't know who is calling but cid says 'unknown name' so it must be very important! Wonder why any honest business would block their company name.

I am receiving NONSTOP calls from 213-537-1438 AND 213-537-1439. These calls are coming in at all hours of the day AND night, so I'm pretty sure they are using an automated system. They NEVER leave a message and they ALWAYS hang up. Even if I answer, they hang up on me instantly. As I have elderly sick family and my wife travels for work, I CANNOT just turn my phone off, as some people have suggested. I have since decided NOT to answer them any longer and have saved the number(s) into my cell phone under "TM # - Do NOT Answer!" (Where # would be TM1, TM2, etc.) I have also set the Ringer Option (Ringer ID on Motorola Phones) in my Cell phone for these numbers to SILENT, so I won't be bothered from calls from them again. I have started doing this with all of the TM numbers I receive calls from as well, as it has saved me a lot of time from wondering who the hell is calling me at 3 AM CST. As my Cell number IS listed on the FTC's Do-Not-Call list, I WILL be reporting these calls on Ongoing Disturbance/Nuisance Calls immediately. I am NOT subscribed to any of the magazines that anyone has mentioned here, nor would I, after seeing their bad business practices. So, I have NO clue why in the hell they would continue to keep calling me over and over, including AFTER 9PM and BEFORE 8AM CST (which is illegal), just to hang up on me. If they wanted me to Subscribe or Renew a magazine from them, wouldn't they want to actually speak with me?

Receiving ongoing calls from 213-537-1439. Each and every time I answer, they hang up. Have since decided NOT to answer them any longer and have saved the number into my cell phone under "TELEMARKETER - Do NOT Answer". Have done the same with past numbers as well, as it has saved me a lot of time wondering who the heck is calling me at 3 AM. These calls are coming at all hours of the day and night, so I'm guessing it's an automated system.
