Received a call from 310-448-6034 on May 2, 2013 at 6:29 PM ET and a second call at 7:17 PM ET. Caller ID Name was William O'Neil. Didn't answer phone because I don't know anyone or do business with anyone in California, so why should I answer a California phone call.

Yes, they got the daily part right... That's the least often that they call... got one trial magazine, didn't want to subscribe... politely told them no... they keep calling... Think it might just be easier to change our number...

Register on the National Do Not Call list. Then report them when they call again. They can be fined $10,000 per violation. A few of those will shut them down REAL quick.

I did take the Investors Business Daily many years ago, but it is delivered via U.S. Mail and is always at least one day late, usually two or more. Although they "tried" to have it delivered earlier, they were never successful and so I cancelled my subscription. I have told them many times through the years I am not interested in reading old business "news."
They continue to harass me via the telephone. I will try one more time to call back and have my number removed from their call list, but I don't expect any good will come from it. Hasn't worked yet except to solidify my disgust and anger towards them. Won't they ever learn?
 May 28th, 2010
Ridiculous. No is no. They're thinking "maybe if we call them again and again they just MAY decide to buy from us!" They next time they call I'm going to pretend to be working at the same office and say: "What? I work for Investor Business Daily in the call center! Omg! How did you get this number! Wait, stand up and wave your arms...yes I'm over here! look! look! No to your left! No to your other left! Wow! How's it going? What? You're looking right at me! hello! I'm waving my arms and you're not looking me! Ok you just were looking straight at me... stop. Look ahead of you! Yes, that's me...." they call so much... I don't see how five no's add up to a yes.

Signed up for Morningstar and selected the free, introductory offer of a week or two of Investor's Business Daily. When the introductory offer ran out they started calling.
They called twice daily until I told them 3 times I was not interested. Thought it was over but they started over again last month - then they called my cell while I was in Bangkok in the middle of the night. I panicked because I thought somebody had died - why else get a call at 3 am?

PLEASE CALL ME! I'm lonely and I like it when Investors Business Daily calls 4 times a day. I pretend that their is somebody on the phone instead of silence. I don't know what you guys are mad about.

This is not a shady practice or a scam. I just spoke to the company and it was explained. It's a dialer for the sales department at the Investor's Business Daily and it is very sensitive to what it thinks is a problem. If your number is for a cell phone, is attached to an answering machine, or is being handled by certain carriers that are seen to be a weak signal, then the machine hangs up and moves to another number. The company only calls people who previously accepted the trail offer from IBD. The system is flawed, it's true, but they are not trying to annoy you.
If you call the number back and simply stay on the line, the second recording you hear will let you know how to get off their phone list. --A minor annoyance with a simple solution--
 Mar 18th, 2009
They call three times a day When I pick up no one is there. Annoying
 Mar 11th, 2009
They suddenly started calling in the past week. 3 times per day to my cell phone. Note that I don't enter my cell number on anything. Very shady of them.

These jerks have called our home as early as 6 AM and as late as MIDNIGHT, and have called EVERY SINGLE DAY since September. Speaking with them does no good, if you say I am not interested the sales idiots just keep talking over you, leaving you no choice but to hang up on them. Likewise, requests to be put on their do not call list does no good, the calls just keep coming. Many paper publication have been going out of business lately and all I can hope is that this company will too.
Illinois

Investors Business Daily, stop the harrassment! We've been getting several calls a day for months. If we answer, they immediately hang up. We called the number back and the person who answered, Rose, acted like she didn't have a clue about the calls. We made it clear that we were sick of the calls. I promise you, the next day, they start calling again. It's beyond annoying. I would NEVER purchase anything that IBD has to offer. If you're lucky, you'll NEVER, EVER agree to accept the free, trial copy of their newspaper. SAVE YOURSELVES!

Hi,

Here is a solution to these unwanted calls -

give a call to 310-448-6150 ... someone will respond - request him/her to take your phone off from their call list .... this worked for me instantly-
I am no longer getting calls from 310-448-6034

Thank you to the person that provided the corporate phone numbers. I called Jerry Ferrara three times in a row leaving messages the first two times, and got him on the third call. I explained that his company seemed desperate to contact me so I thought I would give him a call. Someone there seems to think by sending you an IBD paper and you receive it, that it gives them a way around the Do Not Call list.
He assured me I would be taken off the list immediately, and I assured him that I would call again if I’m not. I suggest each off you call often until you get him on the phone, and voice your displeasure with his marketing practices.

LIKE OTHER REPORTS NOTED BELOW, THIS ONE WAS FROM INVESTORS BUSINESS DAILY. IT'S IRRITATING TO ANSWER THE PHONE AND HEAR NOTHING BUT DEAD AIR. APPARENTLY WE'RE SUPPOSED TO WAIT FOR THE CALLER TO COME ON LINE TO HEAR "THE PITCH" BUT SOMETIMES THEY FORGET TO COME BACK ON LINE. THE ONLY THING TO DO THEN IS TO JUST HANG UP.

there haven't been any reports on here since then either? : o I could be the next folk hero!

I'm going to call them and ask where they've been, cause I'm gettin lonely. I'm also going to ask for a donation to help pay for my landline which is becoming obsolete, because they are getting more use out of it than I am.

I can't believe they screwed up that bad. I about died when The CEO/Author's name came up on the I.D and I googled it to find it was the main corporate line.
 Mar 04th, 2008
Investors Business Daily were relentlessly harassing my dad after he took the free trial. They called and called no matter how many times he told them to bugger off. I was over there on the weekend and they called about 3 times before 11:30am. The 3rd time he picked it up and hung it up. This prompted them to call right back with a blocked number this time. I answered the phone this time, unable to hide the fact that I was fuming about to boil over with every word. I cut the guy off and asked him if he just called. He denied it. He asked for my dad, and I bitterly told him he was gone and hung up. They called back 10 minutes later, this time, from the main corporate line which showed up on the caller ID with the CEO's name!! hahah, I couldn't believe it. I cloaked my cell phone and continued calling the main corporate number back, which was greeted with a recording stating their Monday-Friday business hours.

After that, he never got another call from them again. I hope the weasel got fired for using the main line, this guy messed up. Anyone with the spare time, feel free to Google bomb this message (so that their name brings this up as the first hit on Google).

Is This Happening To You?

On behalf of those who have previously retained us, the law firm of Fineberg Gresham is investigating complaints from consumers being harassed with calls and text messages to their cell phones. If you have received calls or text messages to your cell phone by telemarketers or others who did not have your express permission to contact your cell phone or wish to report any complaints regarding this practice, http://www.stoptelemarketingabuse.com/contact.html. (this will send an email to our office). We are gathering factual information to determine the nature, extent and scope of the problem for those who have retained our law firm. All messages will be held confidential.

What Can You Do to Assist in Our Investigation?

If you have been the victim of this telemarketing abuse, preserve all facts and evidence of the unwanted calls or texts. Save the message. Most voicemail services only store messages for a few days or weeks. As a result, record the message in another place so that you have it. Save your phone bills which show when the call or text was received. Keep all evidence of the harassing calls or text messages.

Too much right-wing drivel is spewed by this publication, so I decided not to re-subscribe. They won't take no for an answer it seems as I'm getting daily calls with no message or anything even after talking directly to one of their reps on the phone some time ago.

Wow! I thought this was only unique to me. Been getting daily phone calls from this same number & when I answer the phone, I just get clicked off **** heads! I have been receiving their daily paper for the past week now & just yesterday received a subsciption notice($400. + for a year-yikes!) You won't believe this, just as I was typing this out, my phoned rang and sure enough, you know who was calling. This time I got this guy confirming If I was receiving the paper. I told him yes, but to discontinue. He then went on to try & push a free investors book w/ "only" an additional months subscription @ $28.00 I told him I was not interested & hopefully, I will not be hearing anymore from them.

I get calls from them way too much. I just called them back at 310-448-6034. I actually got a quick answer but it was a recording. It said "Thank you for calling the Investor Business Daily's internal Do Not Call listing service.... blah, blah, blah." Then it asks me to leave my name and number to be added to their internal do not call list. Well, I did so let's see what happens. Of course I left a little more of a message than just my name and number. Great... I probably upset someone over there and I'll get a dozen calls a day now! lol

I was once a recipient of the Investors Business Daily trial subscription. Ever since the trial subscription has ended, I receive calls. Most of the time when I am in the office and answer, the line hangs up on the other end. Today I asked to put me on their internal Do Not Call list. Great marketing campaign... Auto dial past subscribers daily and hang up when they answer. Go figure.
