Last time they called was on 6-27-07 @ 8:22 PM! Plus from what I read here, they sound very much like the ppl that call from 239-275-5218
. The gov or telephone companies should come up with a way to stop these call. Get a call from these heathens..click a button & thats the end of them. That would be perfect. I have a cell phone, its number I only give to ppl that I WANT to hear from. The house #, only to ppl I DONT want to hear from. So if it rings I dont even have to look to see who it is. Most times, I have the ringer off. But when Im bored, I look through the ID caller. Some get me to wondering so I call back & hang up.
Sorry..I forgot something else. I called the number back..thinking there was a possibility that I could here info about them..instead, the phone kept ringing. How odd, it was before 5 PM, they had just called. So I figured that it was a home phone & they had the wrong number. But they keep calling so I know that I definitely do not want to waste my time. I pick up the phone and let my kid talk into it or my dog breathe on it. lol.
Oh..and the woman had a hispanic tone
These ppl have been calling me too. On my caller ID it says SRBB & the # 239-275-5218. I only pick up & dont say a word..just to annoy them & see if they stop.
A Hispanic sounding male called saying he was in New Jersey and wanted me to participate in a short survey. I said "Shoot me one question and I will decide then". He said he would like my opinion of the illegal immigration situation. I said we should roung all of the illegals up and send them back where they came from right after we tattoo "ILLEGAL" on their foreheads. He hung up. Rude bastard!
The SRBB-firm just called me again and started with the whole "this is a survey' thing. I stopped him and asked for what firm, what data, etc. He seemed sincere (they all do) and promptly told me I could check out the validity at their web site: www.pewforum.com, which deals with religion and politics. I must admit that I have been to sites that deal with conservative values and religion, but in no way gave my phone number online.
Purported to be conducting health surveys related to hurricanes they were hung up on...since they have called daily often multiple calls per day, for over one week and never leave a message.
Yup... No message ... just caller ID
Caller said they were doing a survey for the IRS. I did not give any info and told them not to call. This is the 2nd time this week. I reported them to the IRS fraud line.
I received two calls so far saying they are calling for the Tennessee Valley Authority and want to ask questions about our power usage. I said I was not interested in the survey but they called again the next night. The do not call registry will allow a survey call as long as the caller is not selling anything. I tried to call the number back from my cell phone and it stays busy. I wonder what would happen if I tried calling at 6:00 a.m.?
I have received 9 calls this past week - I have not answered and they do not leave a message on the machine. Caller ID lists them as DALE BOYD, and UNKNOWN.
called 4 nights in a row.when i told the caller not to call back in told me not to be rude. so then i was rude. cant right what i said. also filed complaint with do not call list.
Getting called every night for 3 weeks at about 8:15 pm. Caller ID is Dale Boyd.
To get off this list just call Albert Ronca in New York at 212-779-7785
. He is pne of 3 owners that run this telemarketing company. I think if everyone calls him, he'll get the message. Good luck
They have called my house repeatidly even at 9:00 at night, they have harrassed me by calling all the time, I looked up the area code of 239 and it is out of Florida. Thank goodness for caller ID, I dont answer when their number comes up anymore
I was out last night when SRBB called at 8:39pm per my caller ID, but no message left on my answering machine.
STEVE OLSON of 2845 WINKLER AVE in FORT MYERS, FLORIDA NEEDS TO GO TO JAIL...OR AT LEAST HAVE HIS PHONE PRIVLEDGES REVOKED BY BELL SOUTH.
This is they guy who is making all the calls. He needs a visit from the local authorities and needs to stop his harassing and imposing phone calls. If anyone has his home number, please forward.
2845 WINKLER AVE, FORT MYERS, FL 33916
have asked them to take me off their call list and yet they continue to call.I thought this was illegal?
Richard Sherman May 05th, 2007
There caller ID showed up as Dale Boyd.
I finally answered...They wanted me to take a medical survey..They say they represented something like "Florida Medical Association" I asked if it was a State of Florida government organization and was tol it was...I didn't believe him...The questions pertained to my personal health....He probably represents the private insurance industry...
Over the past several weeks we have noticed SRBB on our caller ID at least 3 to 4 times daily. No message is ever left. We've not answered the phone as we never recognized the phone number. We knew it was Ft. Myers by the area code since we live a couple hours north of there in Madeira Beach. We finally decided to check it out on the internet since we just received a call from SRBB at 6:30 pm on Sunday! We found the following on whitepages.com
12610 Equestrian Cir
Fort Myers, FL 33907-7584
Thanks for this website so we can now file complaints with Florida and the Do Not Call list people.
I have been on the Do Not Call list for a long time and tell telemarketers this and they go on about how it is a worthy cause and all.I finally told them that i am not donating this year,lol.And they go 'Oh,ok" & thank me for my time and hang up.
They have called my home at least 2-3 times everyday for at least a month now.I do not recognise the name or number so have never answered the phone.I just want them to stop.I suppose i could answer without speaking and lay it down like Andy Rooney does on "60 Minutes",lol.I get 2 or 3 other calls from other states,will have to write down the numbers.Thanks.
they called repeatedly over the last two weeks sometimes up to four times a day I never picked up and they left no message...
For the past week, they have been calling every day, twice a day and leaving no messages. I have Caller ID and never pick up. I was just curious about who would call so often, but then never leave a message.
I have 10-15 calls on caller Id from this number. I have placed a block on this number and many more with my internet phone service.
Tonight is the second time I have gotten this call. I watch my caller id and didn't answer. I have Privacy Director and am surprised that it did not intercept this call.
they just called my house in colorado asking for my grandmother who just recentely passed away. she didnt even live in the same state as i did. i wonder how they got my number.
This number called several times in several days, finally to my daughters dismay I answered their very personal health questions assumming it was a government poll and trying to stop their calling. I should not have answered their questions and hung up.
Can't get these people to stop calling.. It is a dailly 1-2x thing
SRBB - claimed to call from fl dept of heath. Has called 8 - 10 times even though we have answered the last few times and expressed that we are not interested. Thanks everyone for the info...
Male claimed to be from Florida Dept of Health conducting a survey in conjunction with CDC. Called two days in a row, although we declined first time.
Perdido Key FL Apr 20th, 2007

SRBB has been calling us once to twice a day at all hours, but usually later in the evening around 8:30 or 9:00. I'm in MN. I didn't know who SRBB was or recognize that 239 number, so I didn't answer. They never leave a message. I Googled SRBB and found this site. Thanks for the info that everyone has left; at least now I'm not so much in the dark about who this group is. I'm glad I haven't bothered to pick up and talk to them.
Got two hang up calls from this number today
WHEN THEY CALL YOU TURN THE TABLE AND ASK ABOUT THEIR ORGANIZATION, LOCATION, ASK ANY ANNOYING QUESTIONS YOU CAN THINK OF. THEY WILL GET ANNOYED AND HANG UP. ALSO FILE A COMPLAINT ON THE DO NOT CALL LIST. DO NOT GIVE OUT ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION OR ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS FOR THAT MATTER.
I have been getting them frequently while I am not at home. Today I picked it up and it was a loud fax sound!
SRBB has struck on one or two handfuls of ocassions over the past two weeks.
I have filed complaints with both the Florida Attorney General and the Do Not Call list.
wanted to know if anyone in the house was under 18, told him no one lived here, he asked how old my kids are, told him none of his f'ing business, he told me to f off and hung up.
Getting calls from Ohio, Minnesota, New York, then SRBB - each one calls at least 6 times every day, at all hours. I never answer and they never leave a message. So annoying! Thanks for the link to file a complaint.
I applied to have my health insurance transfered from one state to another just yesterday. This evening I get a call from this company doing a health survey. My number is unlisted/unpublished. The insurance company I spoke to yesterday was Blue Cross Blue Shield. I am totally suspicious that THIS company is bending the rules by hiring another company to ask questions. If there is anyone who runs this site to push the local press to investigate it would be a good thing.
Called about interactive hdtv & tv programs watched. Spoke to very polite male. He asked some personal questions as well re: ethnic, age, income etc- then I got nervous later - thought he said Co was Conan or Konan Assoc of NY - thank goodness for caller ID - but he was very polite. Couldn't find them listed anywhere until I tried SRBB. thanks for the info - at least I wasn't the only one -
After I stupidly answered some of their questions, I asked them what the survey was for.. They said "to find out if there were any Muslims in the household.
I am furious!
Just received a call indicating they were doing a survey for TIME Magazine and needed someone over the age of 18 - preferably a male.
Asked questions about travel (where we have been in last year), then about income level.
Just got a call from them and googled and you all came up! I just filed a complaint! Thansk for the link!
Here is a link for filing a complaint against SRBB in Florida. The Florida Attorney General has a good record of enforcing telemarketing laws

These calls seem to be coming from:
7431 College Pkwy, Fort Myers, FL
Category: Market Research & Analysis
I asked the last caller for location and got College Pkwy, Fort Myers.
I called their business number and asked if they were conducting "Health Dept" surveys. The response was affirmative.
These people are rude. They arrogantly state they are exempt because they are not selling anything. They are exploiting a loophole. Regardless, they should respect the intent of the do-not-call list.

I recieve calls from this number every day. I call the number back and it just rings. I was curious to see who was calling because my wife and I just recently moved north away from South Florida and have family in the Ft Myers area. Aparently it's not family.
SRBB: At least 2 times a day. I never answer, yet, they keep calling.
Amsterdale Mar 01st, 2007
I heard my answering machine kick in, looked at Caller ID, it showed SRBB and as I do not recognize that 'name' I did not pickup the phone. They did not leave a message, so I looked up their # on the Internet.
Called and left no message on my v/mail.
Thank you for the heads up on this flake!
I'll know what to say if they try calling again-
Called tonite. 5 minutes after a New York call. Asked to speak oldest male in the house. I played dumb, he got mad and hung up! hahaha!
Female caller said that they would like to do a survey on life satisfaction (last two nights in a row 9 & 7 PM). Wanted to talk to the youngest female in the house above the age of 18. I asked if they would stop calling and was simply told "I don't know" and hung-up on.
recd this call and no knowledge no message left..need to stop calling..we have an unlisted u published # upset that someone has it for soliciation etc
Have been calling every day for the past week without leaving a message. Thanks for the info. Looking forward to blasting them with an assortment of 4 letter words!!!
Got a call from SRBB at 8:24PM
Some people are so ignorant. I'm sorry I missed this 3rd attempt to harass me with crap I already made clear I didn't want to talk. Get ready for hell
SRBB: S.elling R.efried B.ean B.urritos
They're not selling items because they are getting paid to call you by a coward company exploiting the regulations. If anything they want anything besides a survey is $$ donations or enough info for some kind of scam. You can't hide buds!
That's Cypress Drive on the corner of 6th Avenue. Florida ZIPCODE: 33907-2937
Here's what the web pulled up in the white pages! They called... When I answered and they responded with the blabber I just hung up. Only to find these jerkoffs called again while I was out. Apparently from the other COMPLAINTS about this number they are total frauds. I hope they get fresh with me on the phone because I'll be more clear this time round.
1737 Cypress Dr
Fort Myers, FL (map)
Tel.: (239) 275-5218
Called 4 times over weekend but did not leave a message. Googled phone number, came up with the following info:
2845 WINKLER AVE, FORT MYERS, FL 33916
Google Maps/Hybrid indicates that this individual is located at an apartment complex in florida. Check it out for yourself.
Claimed to be with Health Department and worked with CDC called to do survey.
Knew I had been to CDC website but I left no info there.
Male person seemed to be very organized and legitimate.
Asked me personal health questions which I answered thinking this was the right thing to do since I have Lyme disease. Now I am sorry I did. Said he was calling from Virginia but caller ID was for Ft. Myers FL.
Internet search showed three names came up for phone number.
They called but did not leave a message on my answering machine. Therefore, I looked up the number on the Internet.
Oh. And both times I was told they were in New York. However, the only 239 area code I found on the internet was in Florida.
They wanted to do a survey on what sports people were
watching on TV. I told her that I had already been
called and did not want to do the survey. I asked
that I be placed on their do-not-call list and she
told me that they did not have to do that because
they were not selling anything. I told her again
that I did not want to do her survey and not to
call me again. She then told me that they would
call again some other time. Once again I told her not to call me anymore and that I did not want to do her survey. She apparently hung up after that. This is the second time they have called and from this womans attitude they apparently feel they have the right to continue to harass me into doing their survey.
