Calls every day, never leaves a message. I blocked them, which only seems to make them want to call more - they are now calling up to four times a day. I find them all on the caller ID.

National Do Not Call List Says:
http://www.consumer.ftc.gov/articles/0108-national-do-not-call-registry

What about telephone surveys?
If the call is really for the sole purpose of conducting a survey, it is not covered. Only telemarketing calls are covered — that is, calls that solicit sales of goods or services. Callers purporting to take a survey, but also offering to sell goods or services, must comply with the National Do Not Call Registry.

Arbitron. Probably the most persistent nuisance in a long time.
Added to blacklist in blocking phone yet they call daily, morning and night and retry once each time within a minute of getting the fast busy.
Perhaps the lucky ones get a dollar bill from them in junkmail. I took mine to mcdonalds for a large tea while I write this.

Arbitron: message on voice mail says they're doing a radio survey in my area. Called every day, for three to four weeks, around lunch and dinner time. Only began leaving voice mail messages the last three days. Apparently their final call was this morning before breakfast. Suspect it's more than just a survey given the intensity of calling, maybe also collecting data on what phone numbers pick up. If I haven't picked up the phone by now, why do they think pissing me off at 7:30 am will encourage me to answer now?

We never answer "unknown Name" or even company or city names that we have no dealings with, assuming that 95% of these will be boiler-room and/or sales solicitations & scams. In this case, the same telephone number changed it's call-out name from "unknown name" to "Columbia, MD" so that peaked my interest to find out who they are. They have called us 4 times in the past 7 months and now I see that they are a company I do not want to hear from so, since I am on the "DO Not Call List" already, and I call them to tell them I don't want any and to put me on their "personal"(?) DNC list and if they still call me, who do I contact next??

To get them to stop, I wrote the BBB in Maryland, the Attorney General in my state and Maryland and listed them here. I agree with the others, they are not who they say they are. Supposing about what radio station I want to listen to, then they want my name, address, email and all my information...for what?? The more people report them to the Attorney General in Maryland the quicker we can shut them down.

Speaking of being ''Not Who They Claim To Be'', Alex Copeland is not ''Too Smart'' if he thinks changing aliases makes his line of crap any less spam-like. The Only Response Alex Copeland Makes To Every Kind Of Call In This Asinine Capitalized Text Style Is To ''Always Answer'' ....

.... even though many telemarketers are paid for a completed call. If call centers were that concerned about their telco bills they would not consider the phone an ideal instrument to get them paid more. The only ones helped by ''always answering'' are the scammers. Makes you wonder about Copeland's stake in consistently giving such faulty advice.

More notes on Copeland's dubious advice are found here from August 2011:

ARBITRION has been calling me as many as 4 anoying calls per day from 410-312-8222 from May 2, - May 9, 2012. They would call late 9:15pm and and early 7:15am, and all thru the day. No person on the line.
I finally would not answer, but they continued calling. I blocked their number, but still had the harrassing first ring and 4 times a day.
I filed a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission, filed a complaint with BBB.org

I looked on this site and found another phone number 410-31-8000 and called it. I got a very nice receptionist who said she would have them take my number off the calling list. She also called me back to say that it was done. She said that a supervisor said that they had trouble with their phone system during this time.

This is a legitimate survey company according to the Maryland AG's office, but they should not have called like this.

I do believe that their receptionist has notified the proper person to get my phone number removed. Again, she was an extremely nice person and helpful.

I suggested some type of opt out selection by leaving a message, if no answer.

Arbitron kept calling 2-3 times a day for well over 2 weeks (we don't answer telemarketers). Finally I'd had enough and answered saying they were harrassing me (he claimed he never called before). I told him I have caller ID and yes he was. He was very persistant in lieing about never calling. Told him not to call back. That was 2 days ago and so far they haven't called back. By the way, they were calling morning, noon and night. After 2 weeks of no one answering, you'd think they'd either leave a message or take a hint.

This is Arbitron. We made the mistake of saying that we would participate in their radio ratings survey. They sent us the diaries, then called to be sure we got them, then called to be sure we remembered when we were supposed to participate in the survey, then called to ask if we had questions and "can I count on you to return your diary?" If I'm too stupid to understand the instructions with the diary either (1) I'm too stupid to take part in your survey or (2) your instructions aren't very clear. (I have a college degree, so I think I can handle this relatively simple assignment.) When he asked if he could count on me to return the diary, I started to tell him, "No, I'm going to keep it as a token of this wonderful relationship we've had." The next time they ask us to participate, I'm going to tell them that $1 isn't going to get it. I need at least $1,000 for all this trouble.

people people i used to work for arbitron and believe some of yall might think there from overseas, but there not. Theres one office in Maryland and another in Texas. Arbitron is just a research company that conducts ratings, its not bad at all. I wish everyone that called me gave me money. As soon as you answer there surveys the calls will stop, and believe me those incentives are pretty good. The cash prices are good, so i would answers those calls if i were you, its not everyday someone calls you to give you money. And the reason why they dont always leaves messages is because they havent called you enough, once theyve kept calling and still no answer is when they start leaving messages and call at earlier or later times. And if you really wanna get rid of them, dont go off by saying "stop calling", or hanging up, or not answering. The only way to stop is by saying "TAKE ME OFF YOURE LIST" those are the majic words to them.

If they want to send me a few dollars more for my time, I'll gladly take part in their survey.

i have received more than 10 calls a week for the last 5 weeks from this company. after reading many of the posts here, i decided to call them. maybe it's because i have been in sales, retail and customer service for over 20 years.... they are just doing their job. i thought about many of the sales calls & drop by-s i have done over the years. some were excited to hear from me because of the personal rapport i had established previously. some didn't remember meeting me at all. some were bothered that i was referred. the cold calls were always the worst. they weren't expecting me or my company to call on them. i kept all this in mind when i spoke with their representative.

i tried to be nice and polite. i explained that i understand the work they are trying to do and that they aren't trying to sell me anything. i know they are only trying to get me to take a survey. i then explained (NICELY) that i wasn't interested in participating.

BEFORE I COULD EVEN REQUEST IT....Taylor apologized to me for the inconvenience, she asked what my phone number was and said that she would remove my number from the list. she also said that it would take 24 hours, so to please be patient.

i'm ok with that outcome. if you would like a similar, PLEASANT, experience...i would urge you to try handling it the way i did. i couldn't call in the heat of my frustration. i had to wait a few hours after their last call. sometimes a little distraction is all one needs to calm down before a sensitive conversation.

hope you found my comment helpful! :)

This company is legit. SOme may not like it but, they ARE Legit. They people the general population for ratings.
In the last 2-3 months I have received a letter with 1 Dollar bill in it, twice, Followed by two more " thank you" letters for participating in the surveys, both of which had crisp 5 dollar bills in them. Yesterday I received another letter containing a ten dollar bill " as a gift" to participate in yet another survey, and the amounts keep getting a bit bigger.
No complaints from me. The surveys are fast and easy, and if they call at a bad time, you can request they call back at your convenience. to be honest, a few extra bucks here and there is nice. Arbitron is cool with me. and now I know whos number this was. lol

Having problems with irritating callers on your cellphone? Try checking out your phone's Settings.

There may be a Setting for Restricting Calls. If so, you may be able to set your Outcoming to All, so that you can call whoever, and restrict your Incoming to Contacts only, so that you're only receiving calls from people who you want to speak to. Just a thought.

Oh, and by the way, if you do restrict Incoming to Contacts only, you won't know when non-Contacts are calling. They'll think that they're irritating the hell out of you, even though they're really not, and, if you want to, you can always still pick up messages from them when you check your voicemail.

Hope that this helps, and have a good year. : )

So far they've called 15 times. Positive note: I'm trying to train the dog to not get excited when the phone rings, so when Arbitron calls, I just let it ring and try to teach the dog to be calm and go to his bed.

Got a response back same day (and have had no calls since): Dear Mr. x,

I have placed your number on Arbitron's Do Not Call list.

As a company, we place a premium on respect and professionalism and take your request very seriously. We regret any inconvenience you may have experienced as a result of any phone calls received related to the Arbitron ratings survey.

Thank you and have a good day,

We have been receiving phone calls from 410-312-8222 since June 27. I have answered and asked them to stop calling; we have called back and asked them to stop calling. Nothing works. I just sent an email to them requesting that they take us off the list or I will file a complaint with the FTC.

We are listed on the Do Not Call registry, but as a survey company, they are exempt from that and can all. We have not received any surveys from them in the mail.

I like AlSO's response - please list Arbitron's owner's PERSONAL PHONE NUMBERS so we can call them and see how they like it. Hopefully they will get the point of what their "business" really does - harass people at home.

When I get their numbers my call is going to go like this:

"Hello, I'm calling to do a survey on people's thoughts on receiving phone calls on surveys. Do you
A: Welcome the survery calls - love talking to strangers on the phone
B: Find them annoying
C: Too busy to talk - call again later

Thank you for your time - I will call again in a few days to see if you changed your answer.
Have a great day."

Just got a call from this number, I never answer calls that aren't in my phone. I had the chance to do a search on the number (which landed me here) but they also left a message telling me they were from Arbitron.

A few months ago I filled out a short survey they mailed me (I think there was $2 in the original and then they sent me another $5 after they received the completed survey).

For all you idiots out there complaining about harassment - chances are you filled out their survey, took their $$$ and if you had any decency at all you'd at least give them a few minutes of your time and complete the radio survey. I plan on doing it, especially since they just sent me another letter with $10. Not a bad deal at all...

If you really don't want to deal with doing the survey, I'm pretty sure if you either email or answer next time they call and tell them you're not interested in participating, they'll stop calling you.

Either way, I think you should stop complaining because, as far as I know, these people don't cold call; they only call those who replied to their initial survey. Thus making it an unsolicited call... pretty sure mine had a disclosure on it stating that they may contact me.
Colorado

arbitron media ratings sends out a questionaire in the mail that usually has $2 in it. if you fill it out and send it in they'll send you another $10. they get your number from the questionaire that you send back, so they're only calling you because you wanted the $12 bucks. just email them and they'll stop.

who or what company is 410-312-8222??
 Mar 20th, 2009
Simple Solution!

I started receiving a rash of calls from 410-312-8222, which is a company called Arbitron. I sent an email to "questions@arbitron.com" and promptly received the following email (I x'd out the phone numbers):

Thank you for contacting us with your concern.

We take our respondent's requests very seriously. At your request, we have removed the phone number for your household, xxx-xxx-xxxx, from our survey. We have placed it and xxx-xxx-xxxx on Arbitron's "Do Not Call" list. This should prevent them from being selected for any Arbitron projects in the near future. Please allow 12 hours for the system to update.

As a company, we place a premium on respect and professionalism. We regret any inconvenience you may have experienced as a result of any phone calls you received related to the Arbitron ratings survey.

Yours,
Sam Roberts

I haven't received another call since!

Good luck,
Carol

These bitches call religiously around 9 in the morning. I go to school full time and would like to have extra sleep, but I can't achieve that because Arbitron keeps calling me about some damn radio ratings. Me surveying about radios are not going to help me graduate, their not going to cure my illness. I filed a complaint to their asses so they can never call me again. That and Kantar OPS.

Endless calls at all hours

My family's unlisted phone number (which is enrolled in National NO CALL List) has started getting nightly calls from this number, which Caller ID only tells us is from "OUT OF AREA" (= long distance). Someone is definitely on the line. But, they don't have the decency to say anything after greeted. HARASSMENT!

This group has called my home for the past week, several times a day and they have left a couple of messages to return the call if we were intersted in participating in a rating program. The past couple of days they called at 7:30 am, 8:15 pm then again 7:45 am and just now at 10:20 am. They left a messsage last night saying they were trying one last time to see if we wanted to participate. As you can see, it was not "one last time".

Called today for first time at 1:21 pm, left no message. Since we are unlisted and unpublished, they must be using autobots to call. We have ability to block if they keep calling.
