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.
yeah, (worker), youre absolute proof why I wouldnt talk to your company. How unprofessional. Keep on calling buddy, and learn how to spell. Damn...
just got a call...sounded fishy..was doing a "scientific market research survey" on energy use and "had to speak to the male person in the household that was over 18. I told the caller we didnt do phone surveys..he said there was no harm in answering a few questions for the envorinment...and ask again to speak to the male in the house I told him to never call us again and as he continued to talk, I hung up.....

Thoroughbred Re calls my home several times a day. The number they're calling from appears as: 270-650-2080
. It's the same number each day. Who/what/where is this annoying fake company? We've been on the "Do Not Call" registry for years, but it doesn't keep these creeps from sneaking through. Glad to see we're not alone, but sorry that others have had to endure this. Make it stop!
All my opinions are a $10 minimum. If they want to pay me fine, otherwise they can get bent.
they called here..they would not identify themselves (called ID said Thoroughbred Re, whatever that is)..I told them I am on the DNC list..to stop calling me..they hung up on me
They doing it again! Calling without saying anything. Guess they are looking for some reaction but I just send a trace to my phone company and soon the enforcers will be asking why they harass people with silence.
they say they are medicare center. give me a break. these people are telemarketers and in no way am I giving my personal info to these people.
Receiving calls once or twice a week from Thouroughbred RE.
I am handicapped and no message is left on machine. # 270-450-3798
I am on the no call list and would appreciate it if the calls would stop.
no message just a hang up. Nothing research about it. Spams calls and will report next time.
Whoever these people are have no respect. They have called twice. Second time I answered phone only to be hung up on. I am disabled and it is hard to get to the phone, and then to be hung up on is really the last thing I need. They need to be put in their place - leave people alone and get a real job.

i work for thoroughbred research group. we use an autodial system, so the computer randomly creates phone numbers...listed and unlisted. Research calls are exempt from the do not call laws and the $500/call fine. All you have to do is verify your phone number and you can be taken off the list.
Thoroughbred Research out of Kentucky. Finally got sick of the calls and called back and asked for the number to be removed. Guy I spoke to was actually fairly friendly.
Called this evening at 9:08pm, left no message. Thoroughbred RE is what showed up on caller ID. Figured is was a real estate company. It'd be nice if they left a message!
I answered the phone 1 of the 6 times they have called and noone says anything. next call i will report.
let me add . . The Corp. president's Phone number is listed as: Steve Alsbury270-643-0223
Feel free to call him . .
3 calls (Un-answered) at or around 9:30-10 pm MDT, caller ID showed Thouroughbred RE and #270-650-2080
Traces to this site or "Tom Wilkerson & Associates" in or around Louisville, KY
They've been calling me from 270-650-2080
. I don't answer, but clearly it is a scam.
I don't care if this is just a survey company and legitimate. If I do not want to be bothered I should have that right. Just because they do not have to respect the Do Not Call List should not be my problem.
I pay for my phone service. If they want to pay my phone bill then they can call me.
I am sorry for college students that cannot find another job in this economy, but there are so many scams out there you cannot blame people for not wanting to deal with another unknown call situation either.

I don't care who or what they represent. I have a private number and they have no business calling my home. Thats fine that they are legitimate, just don't call me.
I too am working for this company this year, as of now, all calls pertaining to this number is for medicare, so please we are just doing our jobs, like others have said, just answer and ask to be taken off the list. But if you want medicare or other government things to improve, its best the surveys are taken. This company has been doing this same survey for four years, so its not a Democrat or Republican thing either
I called then number back after it just called me. I got someone name Janice. She was a btch on the phone. I told her i didn't want to be contacted by their company. She went on and told me that the company got their numbers from the local gas and electric companies and conduting studies on your recent experience with them. And then hung up on me.
I called back got her boss and told her the same thing. she told me i shouldn't get any more calls and then told her about Janice and she said "oh okay" and then said have a nice day. WTF! Rude ass people. Maybe i'll call upper mgt and vent on them.
My mother has started receiving calls from them. Said they are looking for my sister who hasn't lived there in 2 years. If they call while I'm there I'm going to ask them what color underwear they're wearing. Not nice I know, but maybe it'll work.
These people called me and my number is a private number I pay extra money to maintain, I am also on the No Call Registry since it was started. THEY ARE A BAD COMPANY FOR THE BASTARD SLAMMED THE PHONE BECAUSE I NICELY ASKED HIM TO TAKE MY NUMBER FROM THEIR LIST, IT IS IMPOLITE TO CALL SOMEONES HOME AND GET PISSED WHEN THEY ASK YOU NOT TO CALL AND THEY SAY ALSO THEY ARE NOT SUBJECT OR RESTRICTED TO THE DNC AND THEY ARE NOT ABOVE THE LAW AND THEY CAN RESEARCH HOW TO GRACIOUSLY ACCEPT A REQUEST TO DO NOT CALL MY HOME AND BOTHER ME, AHOLES, THESE PEOPLE ARE JUST LIKE ANY OTHER TELEMARKETERS A NUISANCE AND BOTHER DONT CALL ME I WILL CALL YOU IF I WANT TO BE BOTHERED IN MY HOME AFTER I HAVE WORKED ALL DAY, YOUR JOB MY JOB BUT IT IS DIRTY WORK AND I GUESS SOMEONE HAS TO DO IT AND USUALLY THEY ARE UNKIND AND UNREMARKABLE PEOPLE, REAL AHOLES AND WITH AN ATTITUDE AT THAT.
I have gotten 4 calls from this number in the last two days and one from 270-650-2080
. Same company. I asked to be removed from the list and then got another call and hour and a half later on my machine.

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.
I worked there. It's not a telemarketing firm. They do legitimate scientific, market, and medical research. The only times they do silly ones like, "do you drink Coke?" is during training so they do not risk real studies.
The numbers are computer generated. Half of the ones we call don't even work, so I know they aren't targeting anyone.
While I worked there we did several utility studies after the ice storm in the east and some medical surveys. There is also an ongoing market research one about newspapers and radio. They also stop calling your time zone at 9 your time. If you call them and it is not answered, it's possible that either they are very busy training or that someone has been prank calling them and they are ignoring the phones for a while. (That happened a lot.)
If you get a call from here on your sell phone, simply tell them it's a cell phone. They will log it as a cell phone and it should be blocked from re-call. If you just don't want to hear from them, nicely ask the person to remove your number. They will have to verify the number, then remove it. You should not hear from them again unless there is a computer glitch. If you cuss at them, they are usually instructed to wish you a pleasant day and terminate the call. Being mean will get you nowhere.
Besides, most of our studies only last a few minutes and some are very important.
All in all, it's a very trustworthy company with nice people working for them. There are always exceptions, but if you get a rude interviewer, ask to speak to the supervisor. They want to know if someone is not doing their job properly.
Have a good day.
I received a call from Thoroughbred RE and called them back. I told them to put me on a do not call list. The girl said they do not have a list, but they will remove me from the research list. Same difference to me. I gave her my phone number and she said they wouldn't call anymore. We shall see.
this complany calls me from this number, 270-650-2080 and from 270-450-1600
. other reports say that they ask questions about whether you watch tennis on tv, etc. i don't answer calls from people i don't know. end of story. also, i am on the no call list, so what's up?
I am on the no call list why am I getting these calls. Thye need to stop
This number calls all the time at all different times..won't leave a message. I didn't call back because I didn't want to encourage them in ANY way. It's soooo annoying!

THIS NUMBER KEEPS CALLING AND HANGING UP. ANNOYING WHEN YOU'RE TRYING TO WORK!

Too bad they're not telemarketers. They just conduct research for opinions and I"m pretty sure they don't have a "do not call" list. I figure you poeple would be smart enough to do the survey and get it over with.
I answered & the woman asked if this was a business or residence. I asked her who was calling. She repeated was this a business or residence. I asked what she was calling for. Again, she repeated the above. I asked her WHY she needed to know. She said if it wasn't a business she didn't need to talk to me or something like that. I just hung up.
VERY ANNOYING! I have rcvd calls from 2706502080 on my cellphone for the last few days. At least it doesn't go to my cellphone voicemail so I'm not paying for the call.
DO NOT ANSWER THIS ACLL FROM YOUR CELLPHONE!!!
Just call them back 270-650-2080 and ask them to remove your number from their call list. I called made my request and the woman who answered the phone took my number and said that she would take care of it. To my suprise the woman was very pleasant.
Some company doing research on the use of electric? or electric company info? (live person)
They have called every weekday in the evening between 5 & 6pm since 3/26/09. Called at 9:48am on Saturday 3/28/09. Never left a message.
Strange number just started calling here. I won't answer.
Called, left no message. The Caller ID is different that those previously reported for this number.
I don't know how these people got my telephone Number but am requesting they do not call again.What does this company represent? I am Linda at email@example.com

They called to say they had the wrong number. Really? Then why didja call?
Wilkerson & Associates is a research collection company. And if anyone bothered to read what is and is not covered on the Do Not Call Registry then they would have learned that research/survey companies are NOT covered under the DNC list. Political calls, non-profit organizations or telemarketing firms soliciting on behalf of a non-profit organization and companies that you do business with or have done business with are also NOT covered under the DNC list. It is amazing what you learn when you read all the print!!!
The only way to get rid of these calls is to actually answer them and state that you wish to removed from the companies call list and if you receive another call from them then you can actually take them to small claims court and sue them for violations of the DNC registry, make sure you have documentation of everything and you can even check to see if your State allows calls to be recorded by you!
These calls are so annoying and getting to be more frequent...they know my machine picks up after 4th ring so they hang up after the 3rd! A-holes! Tele-marketers should do jail time in my opinion...they're a low form of life. DNC apparently means nothing anymore.
Got a call from this number today. Did not answer it. No message left. Getting to be a real pain in the ass with calls coming in that are not wanted and no have right calling a DO NOT CALL number....
