we're in the DNC directory...why are they calling and why at 5:38pm during our dinner time?!
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???
Calls have been coming twice each day, morning, afternoon, evening - including Saturday & Sunday. I do not answer.
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.

Next time they call they get a blast from my air horn. Badfish, I hope it's you.
I get calls constantly from these people trying to sell magazine renewals. I am also on the DNC but they don't seem to get fined or stop.

Should you receive a telephone call from: 804-200-1426
, 757 333 0911, 801 683 4631, 312 335 5804, 775 920 1972, and or 208 327 1751
If they can't leave a message, don't bother to call !!!
called me..so I called back...I am female and oh so curious..the recorded message told me they had called me regarding a subscription..blah blah blah...
I thought it was my guys ex gal pal as she lives in Idaho...OOPS...jealousy does suck!
"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.

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.
Received numerous calls in past three weeks
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.
has called me 7 times the last two days. I suspected BS so I have not picked up. What are their home phone numbers so we can call them all night??
This number/company can go suck an egg! Just for THEM posting comments on this - I plan on telling them to cancel all my magazine subscriptions...wonder if they are also the same A$$wipes that send out renewal notices in the mail......Sturner and Klein can go SUCK AN EGG!
Repeatedly calls. We don't pick up. Don't know who they are.
I just received a couple calls from this number. It was from AOL.
Called twice on 8-9-07 and twice on 8-10-07
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
Caller ID with Struner Klein from Idaho 208-327-1751
. Not answered and never will be.
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...
Call Them 301-881-2720
, does anyone have their CEO phone #? we should all get it and call him/her at the same time!!!!!
Received a call on my home phone at about10:45AM on 050807
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.
L. Glickman May 02nd, 2007
Called almost everyday for a week. No one is on the other line, however, when I mentioned their name and phone number on my caller id, a male acted as if they did nothing wrong.
Lol jokes on you. works out perfect for a part time college job. do well and you can make almost 18 an hour at your convenience!
S K employee Apr 12th, 2007
"haha you people are retarded i work there."
Joke's on you. You can't hold a real job.
I have been receiving callls for about a month. I do not pick up calls I do not know and they NEVER leave a message
As most marketing agencies, messages are rarely left on machines.
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.
This number comes up sometimes twice a day,or twice a week in the last 2-3 months. What magazines do they sell?
haha you people are retarded i work there. were allowed to call even if your on the "do not call list" cuz you subscribed to our magazines. and we can call tell nine. so deal with it haha
I receive a call from this number on a nightly basis, the latest 9/8/6. I have also received calls from "Sturner & Klein" with a phone number: 301-881-7221
I did not answer the call, but the caller id had 301-881-7221 and ID was Sturner & Klein. No message was left on the answering machine.
Many calls over the past few weeks and at a late hour for us. Past 8pm. We are on DNC list.
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....
I have rec'd this caller ID call twice in the last week. I am on the "do not call list".
Diane L Rollins Aug 31st, 2006
Has called several times in the past 3 weeks. Caller ID says Sturner & Klein.
Brenda Thomas Aug 24th, 2006

Mike Semple Aug 24th, 2006
