They called my cell phone. I did not ans. Went to this website and i have read all of the posts.
In my cell phone i have stored all these numbers. (I gathered all of the numbers from the various posts.)
These are the numbers:
270-643-0222
270-450-3798
270-650-2080
270-985-1110
270-631-0300
270-631-0692
270-985-1422
502-458-4159

Each number I put into my cell phone. Example: 270-643-0222 "Telemarketer 0222" etc.
Sure it took time. But when they call again. I can smile and say "F@&& You" when I read it is from them.

I have only received one call so far with them using the "0222" number ... but after reading these posts, I know more calls will follow.

These folks have approx. 17 different telephone numbers that I know of.
If this is legitimate as claimed by some, they should have no problem leaving a
message on my answering machine.
Other wise, SCAM!!!!!!!!!!

This number -- 270-450-3798 -- calls an office phone which is in a room in our home. They phone multiple times per weekend, sometimes late at night. The office answering machine is off and this number just keeps calling. They will not pick up return calls. There's no "legitimate research" about this and Ms. Lauren's comment below about them being "professional" and nice people is asinine. Her comment about "If you . . . refuse to verify your number, it won't get taken off . . " shows precisely how much of a scam this is. They use the constant calls as a weapon and as leverage for their marketing. Ask them to put you on their "do not call list" and they phone you from another of their 270 numbers.

I'll register the office phone on the National Do Not Call Registry and file a complaint if necessary, but this is precisely the kind of constant harassment that makes automated telemarketeers so despised. The answer is to loose a Stuxnet worm into their computerized systems.

I have been wondering who this is, and i found this site, which I found very helpful. However I cannot ask them to take me off the list because when I pick up- they hang up. This is extremely irritating and I wish it would go away. For those of you who say it is legitimate, I disagree because it seams to be non-professional in my opinion.

I worked there. It's a legitimate research firm. They do not sell things and most of their studies are scientific, though they do some market research to pay the bills.
If they call your cell phone, say it's a cell and they'll take the number off the list.
If you just want out of the random selection pool, say to block your number. They will verify the number and then block it.
If the person is rude, ask to speak to a supervisor. They want their interviewers to be as polite and professional as possible.
If you cuss at them or refuse to verify your number, it won't get taken off. They have instructions to hang up if the respondent gets rude.

Just be nice, most of them are exactly like me. Students at MSU that can't find a job in the small town. There aren't many jobs available, and this was actually a really good company to work for. They aren't bad people and what they do is respectable. Don't assume everyone is selling something.

This was a legitimate call from Thoroughbred Research. They were calling to follow up on a call I had made to the gas company regarding a gas emergency. They asked me if I would voluntarily do a survey based upon the customer service I received. They were very courteous and it took only 10 or 15 minutes, and I wanted to give the feedback. They called two times about three hours apart, once from this number and once from a different one. I wasn't home the first time.
