They called me yesterday (12/30/09) and it was a recording about mortgages. So I stayed on the line and when a live person came on, I asked them who they were (he said it was "Federal Marketing Services"). To which I replied "I do not have a mortgage" and when he asked if I was going to buy a home, I said "no". Then the rude b***tard hung up on me.

Caller hangs up if you let it go to answer machine. If you call them you cant because there is no 411 area code.
Call *67734-542-7600 and let them know what you think of their robot calls. Dont give them your number.They will not stop calling.
Call 800-420-9366 from a pay phone. This will cost them a phone fee.
rinse
repeat as many times as you wish. (10 calls =$7.50)
THEY ARE FRAUDULENTLY USING 411 AREA CODE and the rest of number.

Got this call this morning around 11:30 am. It was a recorded message and after I figured that out I just hung up. This call was reported to the Do Not Call Registry and a complaint was filed!

Received a call 12/28 even though I am on Do Not Call list. THe recorded msg. said mortgage rates had dropped and offered to refinance my mortgage. I don't have a mortgage and obviously am not a customer of theirs nor do I want to be. The msg. advised me to press 2 if I wanted to opt out of their phone list, so I did, but nothing happened after that--no one came on the line. I hung up. I reported this to donotcall.gov and strongly urge all of you to do the same.

Hi Guys,

I got the same call as you did on my cell phone. The same robo call, the same message. It is EXTREMELY ANNOYING. I wanted to curse the caller, unfortunately it was only a prerecorded message.

I URGE everyone here. Please file the complain with FTC (Federal Trade Commission) and FCC (Federal Communications Commission). It is easy, will take only 5 minutes of your time for both complains. I am sure if enough complains filed these scumbags, their business will be wiped out as a whole.

Here are the links to file complains:

1. http://esupport.fcc.gov/complaints.htm (this is FCC)

2. https://www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov/FTC_Wizard.aspx?Lang=en (this is FTC)

Just choose the correct options for filing complain and fill out properly. I believe we can stop this CHOSEN fraudsters

I didn't recognize the number and didn't like that it said "unavailable" on the caller id, so I didn't pick up. No message. I'm sure they will call back though

This time they are calling re some FHA gov't loans. If you listen to the message then you cna supposedly hit 2 and get taken off the list. Let's see if it does.

This caller,(411) 711-2680, is Market Strategies International/ 17430 College Parkway/ Livonia, MI 48152/ 734-542-7600/ 800-420-9366. I called them and asked them to stop calling, and it stopped for a while (about 2 months), then started again.

Received this phone call AGAIN on November 14th. Did NOT pick up. Again this company is ashamed of themselves that it comes through as UNAVAILABLE. NO message. REFUSED to pick up these calls any longer.

It was a robo call, a "thank you" recording from Governor elect Bob McDonell of Virginia.

I don't know why they do it. I am so tired of robo calls. They are going to force me to avoid the polls.

I suspect the calling party is actually just a telemarketing contractor.

Obviously the phone number is completely fake.

These people called me also, with a recorded message about some mortgage plan. I pressed 0 to get an operator and it sounded like the line hung up on me. I waited about five seconds and then decided I didn't want to talk to anyone at this company, so I hung up before anyone came on the line.

I am SICK to my stomach with the amount of phone calls that come in. I am on the DO NOT CALL LIST and still I continue to receive these types of calls. Again, no name (unavailable), no message. I guess they are ashamed of themselves and cannot even put their name on or leave a message. Like the earlier posting I will not pick these calls up. I will report to the Federal Do Not Call List.

Called, left no message. Immediately after they hung up, got call from "publsur09" and a 202 #. Wonder if they're connected. Doesn't matter, I never answer numbers/names I don't know. Call until the cows come home; your call will never be answered.

ID gave this number and read out-of-area. Recorded message dealt somehow with mortgages, clearly an illegal telemarketing call. I punched #2 on the menu which supposedly is to remove me from their list.
