On the DNC. Caller ID said Washington. I don't know anyone in Washington. Call disconnected as soon as the my machine got about 4 words into the message.

I just got a new phone & LOVE it!! I can program in numbers I don't want to be bothered by and no more annoyances! This number will now be added to those alread being blocked.

If I could improve on my new phone, I'd have a programing feature which would play the 3 tones & message you get when a phone number is disconnected/no longer in service so my phone number would eventually be purged from ALL telemarketing/scam/survey lists.

Specifically to Mik (comment 19 down from this) unless you answered the call & spoke with someone, you're just guessing. And if it was, as you contend, "Jay Inslee's office pushing that miserable Osamacare and his bid for Governor of WA." tell all of us who've gotten a call from this number why in the hell would his political machine be calling people nationwide who could never vote for him for Gov of WA?

Foxnews.com just posted a story about these morons. According to the Boston Law Firm Shapiro Haber & Ermy, the calls are coming fron a FL company, The Berkley Group. This much pub just might stop them!

Rest easy, conspiracy fans! This isn't Dems or Reps, but a telemarketing Bahamas cruise peddler who's found a "LOOPHOLE" in DNC - tell people you're conducting a "political" survey, and you can call us all day and night LEGALLY! They apparently use various robocall centers around the country, since the same spiel is being used from diff. numbers.
Laws need to be tightened up so AHOLES like this can't hide under the banner of protected speech to scam the public. Best bet - IGNORE THE CALLS!

Political opinion survey, if you answer you get a trip for 2 to the Bahamas and you only pay a small surcharge, airport fees and misc. charges.

This number calls my cell, i don't answer & they don't leave message. I am on the do not call list but as we all know,- thats a joke. It seems to me since I added my numbers to the list several years ago, i've got blasted with waay more spam calls than before. I simply quit answering my phone years ago, -if i don't know the number,- i don't answer.

It was Jay (Wimpsley) Inslee's office pushing that miserable Osamacare and his bid for Governor of WA.

Even if your number is registered (DNC Database), charities, political organizations, and telephone surveyors may continue to call you. Companies with which you do business may also continue to call, unless you have asked them to stop calling you. If you have asked them to stop calling, please keep a record of the date you made the request and include that information in the comment section of any complaint you submit against that company. Click Here for more information about the companies that may continue to call the numbers on the Registry.

No one responded when I said hello 3x. Must be a robo-call / auto-dialer with mis-configured settings for voice activation.
Or maybe it's just the Republicans metaphorically banging pots and pans again like they did in the Florida vote recount!
If you've already hung up on one republican robo-call they put you on the list for this harrasment.

Received a call from this number, did not answer, no voice-mail left. I have had two other phone numbers with the same occurrence from different areas around the country, and according to the info I've found online, they are all linked to political surveys. I can only assume this is going to get worse and more relentless as elections get closer.

This number dialed my UNPUBLISHED Business Line. Saw that it said "Washington" on Caller ID, so picked up and hung up to break the call without the answering machine picking up to 'confirm' to the ROBODIALING COMPUTER that it was a 'valid' number. Hopefully that will make it 'register' with their computer that this is a 'non-working' number and stop the subsequent calls.

Whomever it was, WE DON'T WANT WHAT YOU'RE SELLING and WE GAVE AT THE OFFICE!

Despite the LOOPHOLES in the DNC List rules, "DO NOT CALL" means "DO *NOT* CALL" unless you are about to GIVE us MONEY - no strings attached! OTHERWISE, LEAVE US ALONE!!!!!

Hi, this is Sarah from Political Survey Group. **It's a survey about the presidential election. Just press '9' to be removed**

political survey who randonly calls numbers, with automated voice. When this number is called an autoresponder tells you the survey has ended to be removed from the list press one. Annoying do not want this to use up the prepaid minutes on my cell phone!
They probably spoof this number...

caller id showed nothing. I returned the call and got a message that said the 'survey has expired, press 1 to remove your phone number.' which I did. I then got the message 'your phone number has been permanently removed' ... we'll see.

If you hit 9 it removes your number and hangs up. if you hit 1 you take a 30 seconds survey and win a curse for 2. Yea okay.
