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:
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.
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.
CALLED TWICE TODAY. I MISSED THE FIRST ONE, REDIALED AND GOT THE SURVEY SPEECH. TOLD THEM I AM ON THE DO NOT CALL LIST, GOOD BYE. PHONE JUST RANG AGAIN, LOOK UP ONLINE AND FOUND THIS.
Unreal. I am on the do not call list and I have been getting 2 calls per day from them for a week. This is a joke.
They are a research group based in KY, they are hired by outside companies, such as wal-mart, pepsi, coke, others to do research surveys relating to their products. Occasionally during the spring and summer they do government sponsored surveys about Medicare and Medicaid.
I called the number got a ans. machine, dialed 0 and left a message asking them to stop or i will report them on 9/17/09...we will see if they stop. Interestingly enough I got these calls many months ago and put them on a call reject I have with my phone provider. I removed the number about 2 weeks ago and they started again. If it is medicare, I am only 42 so I don't even apply to this.
Claim my number has been picked up at random from Medicare roster
Called twice on 05/05/09. Left no message
My caller ID said "Thoroughbred RE". No message left, will ignore future calls like all others that leave no message.
Called twice last night and again today, no msg left
Your buddy makes $4/week? ;)
winklerson and associates is a place that calls people for surveys located in Henderson, Kentucky where I live. they would never calll or so such a thing as pretending to be some one else like cvs or medicare or w/e they are talking about down there but they call doing surveys on those places and get paid pretty damn good money for doing so, its 8.50 an hour and during the medicare surveys which last around 2 months youget paid 13.50 and hour. thats pretty good in my book for sitting down caling people all day.
you may say how does he know all of this???? well one of my best friends works there and has for about a year, he brings home around 8 dollars every 2 weeks with the medicare surveys in tact.
called twice this evening. Once didn't leave a message, 2nd time only rang twice
Called at 8:26 pm. Said nothing when I answered the phone though line was live. We are on the Do Not Call list.
what kind of company is this? this is not the first call I got from them; however, they never leave a message.
does anyone know anything about the company? I have 2 different numbers on them.
they called me at like 7:53 pm. i didn't answer bc with a name like wilkerson ASS, i was a bit skeptic and really didn't wanna talk to an "ass" if they call again, i'll be sure to answer and give them an earful bc i was readin the one comment, where they called an elderly lady, pretending to be medicare, could you imagine someone that would give info out over the phone bc of these tards pretending to be other companies? I think its wrong for this company or whatever it really is to solicit ppl they way they do
for more information on this company, check this link: http://www.courierpress.com/news/2007/feb/24/research-company-opening-call-center/
They also operate from 270-631-0300
. Sometimes the caller ID box lists Henderson, KY and sometimes it lists A. Wilkerson. One time they got sneaky and all it said was W A !!!!!
I've been getting calls almost every day or evening for weeks. I finally googled A. Wilkerson and came upon this website. Glad to know I'm among many complaining!
Didn't answer the call, they didn't leave a message. I still want to know why the Do Not call list doesn't work for this garbage!
Forget my number!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Have called five days in as row...Will not answer calls of this kind!!!!!!
They rang 5/15/2008 at 8:36pm. It rang three times in a row. For some reason I was counting rings. The total? Each call rang 30 times! I didn't answer and have no answer machine so don't know what their deal was. I also am on the no-call list since it was first lined up and have stayed on it.
they`ve called 2 times today, didn`t answer. we are on the do not call list. they never left a message, will not take there call anyway.
They called. I said hello. They asked if this was; my name. I said yes it is. She said do you speak english. I hung up. Because it was stupid question.
Called at 5:45pm, I called back and answering service said company closes at 5:00pm. Left no message. Very odd. I dont trust them.
Called an elderly friend and told they were Medicare/Medicaid. She told them she did not respond to such unsolicited calls he got pushy. If this is a legit company they should represent themsleves as what they are. Very fishy. I think Smiley must work for them. You should not have to put your personal info at risk to get good srtevice etc.
They left a voice mail indicating they wanted to resolve a problem with an expired CVS prescription. They had a correct name for a person but that person had not resided at that phone number for more than 20 years. Very odd.
I contacted CVS and they indicated that they are not associated with this company and they will follow-up to put a stop to this and take action if any criminal activity is identified.
Wanted to talk to me,would not leave message. Wanted to know when I would be available
Called and left no message - I still want to know what good the DO Not CALL list is!?
Wanted me to take a survey, told them not interested, didn't want to take no. Called again within 2 hours. Blocked them on my line.
Go away survey Apr 22nd, 2008
They have called me twice this week. My caller ID said W A. I looked up their number and it is Wilkerson & Associates, 1010 Amiet Rd, Henderson KY 42420 and they were not listed under any of the Business Categories. They did not leave a message either time.
I have caller ID and I don't answer the phone if I don't know the telephone number and/or name.
Sounds fishy to me.
Called at approx 8:00 PM Mountain Time daily for the past week. I have federal and state blocking on my phone. No reason for these any assoc to call me. Did not answer call.
This # called me at 8:30 pm. I didn't answer & they left no message. I looked up # on net and found this.
They called and ask for the oldest adult male over the age of 18. I told them to hold, and hung up. I believe they did say they were with Wilkerson & Ass
Got a call a few minutes ago from this number. When I answered, I heard a man say something like, "drank their own bath water." He hung up after I answered and didn't say anything else.
Was told they call random numbers so they can't take me off their call lists. Doubt this is true.
marketing research companies according to the laws are not included on the "Do Not Call" list. a real nice lady from this company called me and explain to me they are doing research to improve services in my location. if you are not happy with something voice your opinions is the only way to improve products and services. some people like to whine and complain and not do nothing about it!
I got a call from these people today. Apparently, I need to call them back and inform them that I am on the "do not call list", so they better never call me back again
They called & left no msg.
Called about my father's medicare and medicaid. Didn't want to give them my dad's number so told them he would be home later on. They called again today-but I hung up on them. Sounds 'scammy' to me.
called today 7-3-2007 & 7-2-2007 did not answer they called about a month ago asking about my husbands social security, i told them never to call this number again or iwas going to report them that didnt work and we are on the no call list

Called... my father answered and they hung up on him. Weird, unusual and suspicious.
These people have called twice today. They leave no message.
They called three times today so far. No reason any "associates" anything should be calling me so I just let it ring.
left no message, but I did google the number and found that they have a website www.wilkersonresearch.com.
It's a market research company
They have called twice,
5-9-07 & 5-10-07. They don't give time to get to the phone and they leave no message. The comment by Trish is interesting. Is this the privacy breach scam?
THEY CALLED AND SAID THEY NEEDED TO SPEAK WITH ME ABOUT MY SOCIAL SECURITY
very strange message, they called and said they were bay state gas and asked me a strange question about my installation of service the other day. who are these people
