They call every single night and hang up when you answer the phone. Caller Id shows "TNS." When you call the number back to tell them to quit calling you never get a real person, just a recording. Even if you leave a request not to call on the recording, they still call.

In 1999, Alliance One Receivables Management Inc. was created by mergers and acquisitions of five different companies.

Teleperformance boasts over 275 call centers and is positioned in 45 countries.

Their client roster includes over 500 government entities and courts

Most collection agencies operate on a contingency basis, which means that they do not get paid by their client unless and until they collect from the consumer. If and when the agency receives monies from a consumer, the agency then gives their client a pre-determined percentage of the monies recovered. The remainder belongs to the agency.

Oftentimes, debt collection agencies buy these debts for just pennies on the dollar. The debt collector is free to seek as much money from the consumer as they can regardless of what they paid to buy the debt. This amounts to large profit margins for them.

Typically, employees of debt collection agencies are motivated with performance-based bonuses determined by the amount of money they are able to collect from a consumer.

Regardless of what specific methods a debt collection agency uses in their attempts to collect a debt, it is clear that the agency is in the business of making money first and foremost. And that money comes from you – the consumer. Hopefully, you now have a better understanding as to why collection agencies use such aggressive behavior in their interaction with consumers.

Consumers around the globe have long complained about the unfair and often unethical tactics used by debt collection agencies and thus, the FDCPA - a federal law meant for the protection of consumers. It encompasses a set of rules governing the activities of collection agencies.

It's just a market research company doing phone surveys. TNS Global Market Research (A company from Zimbabwe if you can believe it) http://www.tnsglobal.com/ Just answer and tell them to take you off their list (If you can actually get anybody on the phone that is, I keep getting a dial tone)

If you have given your phone number to any one of a number of businesses, they do cooperate with each other, and will sell/ give your number to each other. I recently signed up for an online survey group. I haven't reached the minimum payout but a thorough research of the site convinced me it was safe. I was called by this number just a few minutes ago (see time stamp in upper right hand corner of this post) and my caller ID said it was TNS. I always screen calls from people I don't know. They did not leave a message.I do not speculate whether TNS survey research group is a legitimate survey company or not. I don't care, I hate talking on the phone.

Got my first call from them tonight. Didn't recognize the number. Didn't answer. Searched the number on the internet and found this site. I will be programming my phone to reject or ring "silent" for no more interruptions from these scam idiots. I will not play their little game of answer the phone to give telemarketers a list of who to call and what time to call simply because the phone was answered. Those who answer this phone number are sure to be future victims. Be smart. Don't answer any number you don't recognize. Google it first. Then, let your conscience be your guide.

Continuing they said they don`t do telemarketing & that if You were called it is for a research project.
They continue their message by saying to call 1-800-350-8356 Ext 1289 if You want to be part of the research
project or if You want to be put on their DO NOT CALL LIST.
This isn`t right !!!! They called Me on a cell Phone which I have to pay for My minutes!!!
I shouldn`t have to call them to be put on their do not call list!!!!! Nobody should be allowed to be
making any unsolicited phn calls to cell phn nbrs
These companies have things backwards.

Called indicating doing a survey for a major company. They would not disclose for which company when I asked. Asked (1) what I believed to be the most serious issue facing the country, (2) asked if I owned any annuities purchased personally, outside of work, (3) asked if I owned any personal life insurance purchased outside of work, (4) asked my age, and (5) asked my occupation, which I declined to give. At that point the rep thanked me for my time and the call ended.

I've seen posts on another website which says this number is a marketing/surveying company. One poster said she actually spoke with them and it was as result of a recent Verizon purchase. Just coincidentally, I, too, just made a Verizon purchase. So, I'm thinking Verizon (and/or other companies) are employing this company to conduct legitimate marketing surveys. Just a thought.

We get the calls several times a week including Sunday usually around dinner time and as late as 9 pm on a week night (we are in PST). We usually don't answer, the one time we did they hung up without speaking. Our number is unlisted and we are on the DNC list. I did a reverse lookup and found it is from Hatboro PA. When I searched on TNS Hatboro PA I found this site. Thanks for sharing the info. We need to reconnect the telezapper.

This is a market research company that calls you to record whether or not you are home. They sell the data of whether you answer or not at a given time to telemarketers so they know when to call you and when you will likely pick up.

Called my cell phone 5 times in 2 weeks haven't answered it yet. Checking with bbb and my lawyer about this since it cost me money, cell phone air time, and its a federal violation to charge someone money to have to listen to something they never asked for. See if its worth my time to answer just so I can sue them. Maybe then they will get the message.

I spoke with someone today. They are a group the surveys customers on their satisfaction with a company. In my particular case, I had a problem with my cell phone and called customer service. This number called me back to rate that experience.

Asked me to do a survey about computers and Servers. Offered a "financial incentive" for my participation. After about 7 mins. and about a dozen questions the lady told me that the "quota was full for this particul;ar type of response" (????). She then hung up. Pretty bad. Most reputable research companies will pay for your responses without regard to a quota or some such nonsense. My advice?...don't answer the call.

This phone number appeared on my cell phone, but I did not answer because numbers that i don't recognize i don't answer. I figure that is the best technique if is important they'll leave a message right? But what i don't quite understand is the fact that nothing can be done to stop this stupid people that don't have anything better to do (get a life).

Just recieved a call from them. It's 12:00 pm. 4/15/2007. They asked me if I did a survey at a mall and what did I do a survey about and hung up. They knew my name before messing it up with other names like gregory and then saying my name without me correcting. TNS is on my caller ID.

got a call about a "bak survey". Checked the number online, lots of instances of people saying it was suveys for things, though i find it interesting that according to yellowpages.com its registered to verizon in philadelphia. Would a legit company call people from a cell phone? Probably not.

This number has called numerous times over the past week. We never picked up, but they are VERY persistent. I'm thinking of changing my voicemail message to include: "if you are from TNS, don't bother calling again, we will never answer." It worked with another company, The Pisa Group.

Everyone who receives a call from these guys should email rob.wengel@tnsintersearch.com
Maybe if he starts receiving thousands of unsolicited emails he'll get the message!

Send email to rob.wengel@tnsintersearch.com and request to be put on the company's no call list. It can't hurt...they already have our phone number.
