It is Sunday, 2-22-09, 2:55 p.m. NAP TIME! Picked up phone - nobody there. I realize these calls are automated but can't they remove a number after getting no response after a month???

If you do get calss from sturner and klein for magazine renweals or product promotions and your on the DNC there is a reason why they don't get fined or stopped. There are expections to the DNC such as a business can contact previous or existing customers and nonprofit organizations can contact whoever. Sturner and klein isn't nonprofit but they are hired to call for nonprofit organizations such as cunsomer reports and national geographic. If you wish to stop getting calls from them don't hang up usually they will just put on a loop to get recalled eventually. What you need to do is ask specifically to be taken off of the call lisit, just saying i wish you would stop calling doesn't mean you will be taken off. Also it takes time for your name to be taken off and usually its only for that magazine, sturner and klein have limited information about problems you have with the magazine or product as well because they are not the magainze company they are hired out to call for them.

"What are their home phone numbers so we can call them all night??"

Wow, haven't heard that one before. It was funny when Jerry Seinfeld said it; you, however, are incredibly un-funny.
Really, don't answer a telemarketer's call with the intention of trying to outwit them because, in the end, you only sound like a jackass.

And, really, is it such a HUGE inconvenience that this "type" of phone call required you to answer the phone and say
"I'm not interested. Please remove me from your list."? It's a simple process. I have a hard time believing that a couple of phone calls (with an emphasized professional interest, I might add) constitutes harassment.

Finally, quit attacking telemarketers for doing their jobs. It should be noted that telemarketing isn't a flexible and professional field comprised of well paid executives. Rather, the typical telemarketing firm pays roughly 8/hr and offers little-to-no benefits. Therefore, Sturner and Klein is what one would call a "bottom of the barrel employer." (Actually, you should see some of the employees at Sturner and Klein. YIKES!!!) Nevertheless, telemarketers are real people who are entitled to a basic level of courtesy and respect. Nobody begins an independent life with the intention of being a telemarketer, it just kinda happens... Often, it is transitional work. So, please, don't disrespect them for doing what they must to cover their basic needs.

"All Hail King Patrick and the FORMER verifying team!"

Each night we have received a call from Sturner-Klein, sometimes as late as 10 PM. So I finally answered tonight and told the "lady" that My number is on the "No-Call" list. She replied saying, "You do know that there are exceptions to this rule don't you?" With that, I said, "Then I'm asking you to remove ... NO! I DEMAND that you remove me from your calling list!" So she said, in a very snotty way, "Thank you so much for your time." ANYONE dealing with this ugly group will get no business from me.

How to get S&K to stop calling
1.Answer the phone
2.They will ask for a specific person, the only thing you should say is "WHO IS THIS?" - we have to identify ourselves and the magazine we are representing for that call.
3.You do not have to identify yourself, just say "TAKE ME OFF YOUR CALLING LIST AND MAILING LIST" (some magazines mail additional advertisments)
4.We then, for some magazines, have to give a legal spill...you don't have to listen to all of it...you can hang-up, but we do have to completely finish the legal spill

A loophole in the DO NOT CALL LIST allows companies to contact current and previous customers.
Note to self...Do not EVER buy anything from BOTTOM LINE, NEVER EVER!!!

This number 208-327-1751 called mynumber and when I answered they asked for my spouse by first and last name, we also are on a DNC list, we don't order magazines, so I don't know how they got our # as it is unlisted. When I asked could I take a message, they said they'll call back later. Will not answer when they call back.

all you people have to do is pick up the phone and say that you want to be removed from the calling list... make them go through the removal confirmation and there you go, your removal request will be processed. Due to the fact that you had at one point or another, subscribed to a magazine, they can call you on behalf of that publisher on grounds of "a former business relationship". Menaing, DNC doesnt mean squat

They called, left no message. It was a first call from them, I did a reverse lookup as we are a business and thought we'd lost a business call that we were expecting. Lo & behold...we came across all this crap! Glad to add my 2 cents...

They have called at all hours--since I suspected they were telemarketers, I never answer. They are very lucky for that. I would not hesitate to press charges for harrassment. I have been on the No Call list for telemarketers for a long time.

S&K has many clients on the magazine end. over 100. So if you have a subscription to a mag they represent, that is the reason they are probably calling. They also did work for AOL prior to the end of 2006.

Have had several calls from Sturner & Klein in the past six days. When we answer, all we get is silence. We are on the DNC list. I wonder if it's a company harvesting phone numbers....
