I don't answer it so don't know message
I just got this call in FL. I work for federal law enforcement and got this call on my agency issued phone. I sent it to voicemail, but I'm sure it's a scam.
Alleged Company: LES
Call about lowering credit card interest rate
Press 1 spoke with someone started asking them to tell me exactly who they are and they hung up
Just for fun, if you are working or living in an environment that you could do this in, answer the phone whenever a suspected telemarketer is on the line. If you hear a real human voice and they start their shpeel, hold a gas charged air-horn to the phone & blast them for a second or two! You can get them from amazon.com for as little as $7.00 for the 1.4oz can or under $30.00 for the 8oz which will last a very long time if used in short bursts. Refill 8oz cans are about $16.00. Free Shipping often available on orders over $25.00!
Even if it's a recording, wait and see if a human takes over the call or if there is an option for them to start recording you, then blast them!
Don't get mad, GET REVENGE!

Received a call regarding lowing my interest rate on credit cards.
CardHolder Services last chance to save ............
Voicemail was 1 sec. Called back. Automated reception told me to press 1 to be opted out of future calls. Not knowing who called, I waited. After 30 seconds another message played: if you wish to speak to a live operator, please dial 616-555-1234
. Obviously a fake number. Hung up.
I was called about lowering my interest rate on my credit card but do not have one. When I tried to ask a question they hung up on me. This is twice now.
you dummies. i work there. it's not a scam, you guys just don't do the entire process. I've even read ppl talking about the wrong website! also you guys should inform yourself. I don't think the "national dnc list" matters with surveys, and opinion polls. back in the day that's how they predicted the presidents, through polls by phone. and the ppl paranoid as hell omg your information is even in a phone book for the whole nation to see!! and that phone book even gives an address!! by the way all you guys saying "oh im gona get a lawyer blah blah" some of u don't even stay on the phone to be transferred to the do not call list, so really its not our fault. that shows that u guys really just don't want to be on it. another thing, we haven't been shut down!
I'm on the No Call List and intend to turn the number over to the Attorney General's Office!
told me they were calling for the feds...
Left message about lowering interest rates. Press 1 to speak with live operator, press 2 to be removed from the list. Obviously a bot that was unaware it was leaving voicemail. Company did not identify itself on voicemail.
I had two "no message" calls on my answering machine today from 231-224-2050. Disconnected showed up on the caller ID. I called the number and received an option to have my number removed which I chose. However, the company name was number identified. I just got a message saying I've reached the cumstomer service section. I'm also on the Do Not Call list and have been for a while. Even if this company is legit, they should still be honoring that list.
PLEASE STOP CALLING US. WE'RE ON THE NO CALL LIST you Morons!!!
They called my cell number. Idiots. Caller ID showed +012312242050. Something along the lines of a "lower my interest rate on my credit card to XXX%. Consider this your last notice. Press 1 to talk to an operator blah blah blah" Then it just disconnected as I sat there. Idiots and scam marketers. Now that I know who they are, I will be filing a report with the FTC, etc. Thanks for the cash, idiots.
You people who supposedly worked for "DISCONNECTED" or CTC marketing...you need to get a life where you help people rather than bother them. IT IS A SCAM!!!! If you don't list your company name and people get abused when they want to have their number removed...that's a bad sign. If it bothers you to be cursed at...do something else! I don't curse at regular sales folks when they call. I do get upset when I politely ask to have my name removed and I get a smart ass response.
They've changed the number they call from... used to get these same calls from 228 area code. When you do get a person on the line, and ask that they remove you from their database, they start yelling... UGH!

A company called CTC Marketing in Michigan is doing telemarketing and promosing cruise trips - DO NOT ANSWER THEIR QUESTIONS - HANG UP.
How do I stop these calls
I work for answer solutions as well. It is mosst deff not a scam. We work very hard at what we do and it is a lot of repetitive work. All you immature people saying fuck you and my name is hairy balls, its not cute, or funny. You just make yourselves look dumb. We are giving you an opportunity to get you away and get you on vacation which is a wonderful opportunity since no one can afford to. If you want to be put onto our do not call list, you have to actually sit on the line and be transferred to the do not call list and then type in the number you do not want called. We can not do it for you. Stop complaining and do it yourselves if you do not want to be contacted!
Annonymous Oct 28th, 2009
I work FOR answer solutions... for the record we have absolutely no control over who gets called. On our end the phone actually rings and we answer the line... we are technically considered an 'inbound' call center. Anyways, hearing on the daily to "go die" to "F*** off" etc. is very rude and inappropriate, especially from those of you that are supposed to be considered and treated as grown men and women. The economy is going down the toilet and the people that work here are just trying to get by like everyone else. We are by no means a SCAM. I have actually been on the cruise myself to check it out and its very nice... Next time you get a call and don't want to receive the free passes and never want to be called again, instead of cursing raising your voice or making up a false name like "Ben Dover" "Mike Hunt" or "Barack Obama" maybe you should be an adult and let us know you would like to be removed from the list. We then can transfer you to be removed, it's a quick, painless process... I promise you that just cursing and then hanging up on us will only cause more phone calls your way because you wont be taken off any lists until you have been transfered. You act like were the heartless because we wake you up at one in the afternoon or god forbid interrupt your meal, etc... were doing OUR JOB... by you acting the way you do, I have no hope left for America. United we stand divided we fall I suppose... Have a good night everyone.

I have received about 10 calls from this "company" on our home phone, plus on my husband's and my cell phones (I never give my cell # out so I don't know how they got the number). I'm on the Canada do not call list and have filed a complaint thru them, but just got another call. I have never answered the questions and know it's a scam, but how do I get them to stop calling????? - it's driving me crazy!, You can never get through to s live operator unless you answer the Q's.
How's it going fellaz?
I have a question thats been bugging me for a long time.. What is acai berry?
I keep seeing commercials on tv and ads on the internet so im finally beginnging to get interested.
I guess its some fruit that is very healthy for you and your skin?
I wouldnt mind losing a couple pounds so i kinda want to buy acai berry .. so if any
of you know any good online stores that would be cool!
I also saw it was featured on OPRAH so maybe there is some truth to this lol.
just recieved another call 000-000-0000
lovely how simplistic those numbers r LOL same garbage u have won 2 passes/cruise to bahamas, actually talked to a real person, asked for address n company name just in case had to talk to someone at later time, they said SouthEast U.S. said company name was Answering Solutions. They wouldn't give street address and then hung up LOL. Called Answering Solutions which is legit, but they do no such thing. Scammers b aware not everyone is as stupid to not check their accreditations. These scammers have just used a reputable companies name. I hope between CRTC and the U.S. equivalent they can nail these scammers to the wall for good.
Offer for lower interest rate on our credit card. We don't have any credit cards.
These bastards are targeting Canada now, too, and using various different phone numbers, all of which originate from mobile phones, in various states, including Hawaii 808-372-6602
), Georgia 404-798-9983
), and Michigan (231-224-2050).
I have just filed a complaint with the FTC (file #20768839).
Someone uncovered the company's REAL details, and thoughtfully posted them on his blog. I am posting them here, so that others can file FTC complaints about the company and bring it to justice.

SOMEONE CALLED ME FROM THIS # 231-224-2057
AND IMMEDIATELY HUNG UP WHEN I SAID HELLO... WOW! WHY EVEN BOTHER CALLING SOMEONE IF YOU JUST GONNA HANG UP! SOME PEOPLE HAVE WAAAAY TO MUCH TIME ON THEIR HANDZ......
I got a call from this number asking me to press 1, to lower my interest rate. Out of curiosity, I fell for it!
Next, I got a guy on the line asking me if I had any credit card debt exceeding $2000.
Before responding, I asked what company was he with. He then yelled at me, and asked me again, if I had any credit card debt over $2000. I told him to remove my number from his list. He then calls me a stupid nigger, and says he isn
Something about Bronco fans. I hung up right after I heard that.......GO RAIDERS!
Daily calls - no response when I answer

i got a phone call from this number 231-224-2053
didn't answer i found this website seen same 231-224-2050 also called that back i think that they like to bug people and scare the hell out of them because it talks about leaving cell phone and home number and voice mail never did speak to anyone could'nt find out who this was
COMMENT PART 3 (END): Some folks also said they are seeing this number as a OUTGOING number on their phones and others replied that the weird "press button X" sequence might somehow open their phone up to some kind of long distance call forwarding or such (I have no idea if this is possible, some say yes, some say no). Any way you look at it my decision will be to just report it to the FTC/DNClist folks and NOT answer any questions from this (or any 231 area) number. You make your own decision.
Just A Guy May 11th, 2008
COMMENT PART 2: Based on various comments here and elsewhere this appears to possibly be some kind of scam -- best guess might be phone number harvesting for selling to other telemarketers (not asking anything to use for ID theft as far as I can tell, but could be that too maybe). Because there are several different names associated with the callerid (CTC Marketting, Madriz, Merle Norman, United Public Opinion Group, etc) it leaves me to suspect this is possibly a "spoofed" (faked) callerid. Also, this number-block was (is?) owned by Guardian Communications which was blasted by the FTC a couple years ago for serious telemarketing rules violations.
Just A Guy May 11th, 2008
COMMENT PART 1: Got a call from these folks (CID="Out Of Area"), left no msg. According to a simple Google search this is one of the weirdest phonelines I have ever read about. Seems (if reports are accurate) they represent dozens of different purposes including travel, credit card offers, burglar alarms, gambling, political calls, Jewish holidays and marketing surveys. One person even reported getting some questions that sounded like a prelude to some kind of kinky phone sex (something like "Are your toenails painted right now?").
Just A Guy May 11th, 2008
Got a call from this number that said "unknown name" on my caller id. I normally don't pick up those types of calls, but this had a area code from within my state, so I picked it up. I said "hello" twice and the line went dead. Reading the rest of these comments, I'm glad it did.
left call go to voicemail
I've received several calls from these people in the last few months. Each time, I have informed them that I am on the national do not call list (renewed), and to please take me off of their list. I've even asked to be transferred to a supervisor, only to be disconnected after holding for several minutes (once while the phone was live and I could hear operators laughing about it in the background). This company needs to be shut down, PERIOD.
Called no answer -- line open until I hung up. Enough time foe me to get the caller id and phone number and write it down.
Just got a call about 20 minutes ago. Man's recorded voice stated he was "my captain" and I could win 2 free tickets to a cruise in the Bahamas if I answered 10 question survey. I was curious so I answered the questions. Questions such as..what type of tv do you own? does your vehicle have an extended warranty? do I have dsl, cable, or dial-up? Do i prefer to pay by check, debit, or credit? what age group am I? Do I have diabetes?...etc. Then it said to stay on the line for approx 10 seconds (it was more like 4). An operator took "the name I would like on the boarding passes" (1 name for 2 passes??? hm..), my home phone, and my zip code. (I live in Kentucky) She then said within 72 hours I would be contacted with more information regarding "my cruise". Really don't expect a call back. Hope I didn't give them too much information. Off to call the authorities right now...
A woman answered and asked for my wife by her first name. I'm not married, but the phone account is unlisted ($3/mo) and is registered in a fictitious name for further insulation. The name is known only to me and the phone company. How did the caller get that info?
OH I JUST WANTED TO ADD THAT INCASE SOMEONE FROM THE COMPANY IN QUESTION HERE SEE'S THIS SITE. WHAT IS THE POINT OF THE CALLS BECAUSE ARENT YOU JUST WASTING YOUR OWN MONEY MAKING THE CALLS IN THE FIRST PLACE ??????????????
it should be illegal !
NY mommy of 2 Nov 27th, 2007
i just received this call about 20mins ago it started with a ships horn blowing followed by a voice saying that i could get 2 free tickets for a cruise in the bahamas just by answering a few questions and it would only take 1 min to do, so i did it just pressing any key in the hopes i would get a live person to speak to, which after several questions i did in fact get a real person. she proceeded in a very hastilly manner to ask for the name that i wanted to appear on my boarding passes, i just said to her "before i do can you please tell me what this is all about because i dont understand what this is for ???? " and she hung up, now please excuse my french but "HOW F@#$%&G RUDE" i was furious thats how i found this wonderful site so glad i decided to act on this one, i looked up where the number comes from it said that it was a wireless caller from ATLANTA GA or possibly carolina ??? the number that appeared on my phone was = 1-404-849-2958
and i live in ny state. A BIG THANK YOU TO WHO EVER IS RESPONSABLE FOR THIS SITE :) !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

VEHICLE WARRANTY FOR SALE!
Keep getting 'auto warranty' calls. I have spoken to reps, told them to remove me, they don't, I keep getting calls. Last one was this afternoon, this number. They don't listen. My number has been on the do not call registry for over a year and a half now, and I still getting calls.
We kept getting the warranty call and asking to be removed did nothing. Call their phone company: LUCRE, INC @ 616-361-0128
and they say they can fix it. Maybe if we bitch enough they will cut them off. If you are on the DO NOT CALL REGISTRY, file a complaint: https://www.donotcall.gov/complaint/complaintcheck.aspx
Just got a call from this number, I didn't answer. Instead I just came here and looked it up. Now I know not to answer if they call back.
Crystal in MA Sep 20th, 2007
I get 3-5 call from this number about my auto insurance expiring (I have no car) each and every day... day in and day out for more than 6 months now. How do you get them to stop? Can't some find them and beat the sh*t out of them.
It appeared on my ID while I was away. This site rules!
They have called on both of my phone lines, telling me my car warranty is expired. we "talk" to someone, but they hang up when it gets heated. when you register on a Do Not Call list, it takes 31 days to be "official". Unfortunately you'll get the calls once a day (at least) for the next 30 1/2 days.... you'll never be able to stop them, unfortunately... 2 cheers for technological advancement!!!
Without my reading glasses on, I picked up the phone, thinking it was displaying the name of a friend. What I got was a fairly lengthy happy Rosh Hoshanna message from messianic Bible society, or something like that. Then the recorded message auto hung up.
Is this some kind of new scam whereby any crowd can funnel their pitch through a single tele number?
Sounds like they expanded their offerings from giving away cruises to worrying about the warranty running out on my vehicle. I was going to play with them a little to waste their phone time and money but by the time I got a piece of paper and a writing stick the call disconnected. Darn!
Thanks to information from one of the other people in this list it looks like this may have been a company by the name of United Public Opinion Group located in Maryland. I am in the process of sending an email to the Michigan Attorney Generals office to give them a heads-up on the phone call. Unfortunately I have another 3 days to wait before I can report them to the FTC for violation of the do-not-call list.
called, no message. they can go to hell.
This compnay KEEPS calling me illegally. I am on the "DO NOT CALL" National Registry list. When you return the call to contact someone from this compnay; a voice mail comes on and states. "you have now been removed from our list" and than immediatly disconnected. Well, that would be great but they just keep on calling! I want them to STOP Calling!!!!
This compnay continues to call ...I am on the national "Do NOT CALL" list for telemarketers.
When you try to return the call to report this to them so that they would stop calling ...they answer w a voice recording and than they disconnect you. Leaving you no option to ask them to ...stop!
These are illigal calls being made on their behalf.
Hey folks, if you want the low-down on this scam, see the post from the Real Deal dated 4/18/07. This is nothing more than a phone-phishing/timeshare scam. If you do actually call to take advantage of the cruise, expect to be told that all the lower-rate rooms are booked and that you need to upgrade to a nicer room. These folks need to read Rev. 21:8 to see what God's Word has to say about liars.
I was getting this call several times a day. The last time I waited until I got a live person, and I blew a whistle into the receiver. I don't think they will call back. I'm in Northern Nevada.
This is a solicitation call. Thrying to sell you something. BEWARE may be a scam.
I did not return the call.
Call from TMIC (231-224-2050). Message on answering machine began "we are trying to reach you" with no reference to our name. Claimed that warranty on our "automobile" (no reference to make) was expiring, and that we should have gotten a postcard alerting us to the situation. We have received no such mailing, and we have no warranty on our automobile. We apparently lost the chance to renew our "warranty" because we didn't call back by 7 p.m. Haha. At the end of the message, the guy says that if we recently got a new vehicle or no longer own the one in question, we should disregard the call. Total scam.
Had msg on voice mail stating I won travel to Cancun and Florida. Said to press 1 for more information. Looking for more info on company but my mother always said if something sounds to good to be true, it probably is!
Recording about my info being entered in a mall giveaway and that I won. I press 2 to decline everytime but it continues to call about once a week. Someone please make it stop :(
Trip to Cancun, Orlando and somewhere else for 12 days $249.00 ea for 2 people and two others are free.
Cancun travel agency.
Live in Texas. Received call from TMIC, Fremont, Mi. (231-224-2050) Have AOL Call Alert. Look up number, then block the call.
I just got this call at work, I always hang up on these types of calls but for some reason decided I would go though with it. Guess what...This place is a SCAM. The cruise line they "use" is "Imperial Majesty Cruise Lines" Check out the report.
Recieved a call about winning some trip and it was showcased on some travel channel...big scam...lol
I just got a call at work from them...something to do with a new resort in Cancun. I just called the number back and it goes directly to their "number removal" system. I enteree my work number and they said (it was a recording) that the number I gave them has been removed. Guess we'll see....
11 yo son answered andhung up after a few seconds, said it was a recording. The people that used to have this number apparently had horrible credit and we still get occasional collection calls for them after 3 years. I have a feeling they still use this number on their applications. I don't doubt this is either related to bill collections-to see who actually lives here since you won't lie about who you are to get free stuff, or some other scam.
TMIC called me, when I got to the phone they hung up. I *57 them..
i got the call and was bored at work so i went through with it. no credit card info or anything other than phone and address. i don't mind junk mail, as long as it's recyclable! lol. they only have one complaint on the better business bureau in the last 36 months. the operator was rude, but most telemarketers are. wouldn't you be cranky sitting in a cublicle calling people who hang up on you all day? so from what i am gathering, absolutely nothing has happened to anyone who got the call, good or bad. i am an optomist, so if i end up on my cruise in the bahamas i will let you all know how it went. if i don't, well maybe i'll complain to someone.
Received several calls from this number over the last few months. I don't answer it, let the machine pick up...of course they never leave a message. Now I pick up the receiver and immediately hang up. The calls are not coming as often anymore.
SAME THING THEY SAID I WON 2 FREE BOARDING PASSES TO THE BAHAMAS, ALL I NEEDED TO DO WAS ANSWER 10 QUESTIONS ALL I GAVE THEM WAS MY PHONE NUMBER AN I WENT TO THIS SITE AN SAW ALL THE PEOPLE IN QUESTION ABOUT IT NOW IM BEGGINING TO WORRIE
Just received the call they said they will be sending me two free cruise tickets. Don't know what cruiseline or the date of departure waiting to see what happen.
Do not leave your personal information on these websites! Not to smart people!
Received call 7/9 at work number in Upstate NY on Canadian border. "United public opinion polls" is the company name, complete with horn blowing and "this is your captain..."
Only answered first couple of ?s, then I hung up.
Am in Nova Scotia, Canada. Received much the same call as have all of you. Answered ten general questions for a live female and was told the person arranging the cruise would contact me within the next 72 hrs. Was told to go to Surveycruise.com to register for the two day two nite cruise to Nassau. Cruise ship would depart from Fort Laurderdale. Did as requested and received a confirmation number. Went to site and received a virtual tour of the ship- all very impressive. Next day a message was left on my machine to say they had not received my information and would I get right to it as I only had 72 hrs to respond. Went through the whole process again and got the same story. I can't figure out this scam- return airfare from Halifax/Florida only to spend 2 days on a cruise is not something I would undertake. Am still waiting to hear if there is anything more to this present version of the "shell game." I know the sucker born every minute premise and can only hope that I am not this minute's sucker. Thank you for allowing me to voice my puzzled opinion.
Current history of - 302-290-5165
/ my blog is below! Please read!
I got the same call, captain sying I've got 2 free boarding passes for a bahama Cruise. The lady gets on and ask for my name and phone number, and says hold on. I wait and hear a recorded message that says go to surveycruise.com and register, of course I don't, it's bad enough I gave the lady my name and cell phone number. this is a great site.
They called me tonight and it sounded ok at first but it was a bit odd. They didn't ask any personal questions during the survey so I did it and then when I got a person he disconnected the line almost immediately and wouldn't let me ask any questions. This seems like a scam.
Sending a complaint about this phone number to the FCC's website won't do much good. I filled out a complaint form and got a form letter back stating in part "...After reviewing your complaint, we have determined that we cannot take enforcement action in this case because, based on complaint, the caller is exempt from the Do-Not-Call rules." That, my friends and neighbors is our distinguished Government and our tax dollars at work.
Call was offering 2 boarding passes for a free cruise in the Bahamas
Helen Taylor Jun 22nd, 2007

get in touch with www.surveycruise.com
leave your phone 281-497-8388
and your ZIP 77082 we'll send two cruise boarding passes to the Bahamas
Herbert Krebs Jun 19th, 2007
Same as all of these. I came looking for my tickets too. Obviously a scam.
give me more information on the nassau, bahamas trip
tandra rogers Jun 14th, 2007
Just got this call same thing as you all have reported, I followed through with the 10 questions then spoke to a real person they took my name, told me to check out www.surveycruise.com to find out more AM NOT going to the site. They also said that even if you do not have internet access they would be in touch with me within 48-72 hours to confirm name for boarding pass. ALSO , they have yet ANOTHER phone number out of Delaware it rang into my house as 302-290-5165
, just a warning to you all. Also if you try to call back it says "Im sorry but the person youve called has a voice mailbox that has not been set up yet, good bye. "
I TOO RECEIVED THIS CALL AT WORK. I GAVE ONLY WORK PHONE NUMBER AND ZIP CODE. I TOO THINK THIS IS A SCAM.
I believe this is on the level. I did the 10 questions and went to the site and got my confirmation code. they were supposed to call within 72 hrs, but i didnt wait that long. I called Imperial Majesty cruise lines and they said they DID have an affiliation with this group. They gave me a direct number, I called it and got transferred 3 times but finally talked to a guy who knew what he was doing. I asked about fees, yada yada. He said there is a $59 fee per person required to the port authority to enter and leave the country which is paid up front over the phone, and a 19.95 fee per person for gratuity paid at the end of the cruise. He then told me that all of the crappy, lower level, bunk bed promotional cabins were booked about 20 minutes before my call, and said he could update me to a state room with 2 queen beds and a window for 99$, which is normally a 250$ upgrade. I told him I don't get paid until friday and he is going to call me back then. I thought the cabins being sold out 20 minutes sooner was just a trick to get me to upgrade, but overall i think it is legit, mainly because i called the cruise line (at a number directly from their site, NOT the survey site) and confirmed their legitimacy)I will let you know what happens.
Same as everyone else .Hope the captain enjoys his loney cruise .
Big Scam if I ever heard one.
Same thing here. Call came at work. I answered the Q's. Operator #2914. I called 231.224.2054 and was told that the number would only work from a cell or personal number(I am at work). I would also like to know if anywon has actually attending the cruise and what is the catch. Another state heard from...I am in Missouri.
Got the call at work as well... Same thing. Oh well it was only a minute of my time.....AUstin,Tx
I just got the call at work. I know better but I still answered the questions. Went to the web site and this is where I ended up. What a joke!!!
I jsut got off the phone with them. Horn sound and all, jsut like everyone else here said, but something in my gut told me to go ahead with it for some weird reason. Answered ten questions, and they took my name and number and a message said to go to a website and log in to verify my information. If it's a scam and they try to charge me with something, I'm basically broke, and I'm on disability, so they won't get anything. I'll wait and see and try to remember to update here with what happens.
Zero Interrupt Jun 07th, 2007
I just got off the phone,same "horn blowing.."this is your captain speaking.. from phone number: 702-465-2953
at 7:20 p.m. I answered the questions because I know my mom had signed me up for a call from someone about a free cruise.. (resort thing)thought it was them..doubt it. At the end of the questions..like "Are you a smoker?" ect. Live person came on to verify my name and zip code..I'm in Oregon state .. and I'll be "contacted in 48-72 hrs. And recieve my passes.Yeah, okay. I went to the www.surveycruise.com site the "captain" told me to and found all of these other people's comments about these calls! Thanks everyone for taking the time to post I think in the long run it will TRULY HELP!! I'm thinking of contacting the local news station..give them something to investigate..heh heh..
