Called my do-not-call cellphone. Hello, this is John, from Political Opinions of America. I hung up after that.

Political Opinions of America

Thursday, 29 March 2012


Political Opinions of America begin with a political survey and then offer for free a cruise from Caribbean Cruise Lines that you have to pay for. These cruises are provided by Celebration Cruise Lines. These scumbags masquerade as a political organization to get past the TCPA, the FTC and FCC. They call, try to get you to take a political survey so they can try and sell you a cruise.

http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-954-567-9353


you answer a quick survey, then they tell you to please hold for Carnival Cruises, then they go on about a lovely vacation in the Bahamas, and its completely FREE, however, they need your credit card to pay for the taxes

These folks hide their identity and are not licensed in any jurisdiction I can find with the DBAs Political Opinions of America or POA and their Legal Counsel conveniently refuses to accept service for any legal action against them. Their domain registration is cloaked and their website has no contact information.


Sanscrainte may think he is sly, but there is one thing that he overlooked. His client utilizes caller id spoofing (putting misleading information on the caller id). I could make an easy case of misrepresentation on that alone.

http://www.fcc.gov/guides/caller-id-and-spoofing

Personally, I suspect Political Opinions of America are Caribbean Cruise Lines.

There are literally hundreds or even thousands of complaints about these scumbags all over the Internet. I have found no DBA/Corporate filings for [Political Opinions of America], [POA] or any variation in Florida, Delaware, New York or any other place that I can find.

They own and operate PoliticalOpinionsofAmerica.org and PoliticalOpinionsofAmerica.com which are hosted in Florida and use a domain registration cloaking service provided by godaddy aka Domains by Proxy.

The closest thing to an address of service would be their legal counsel that sent a response to a complaint about their activity.

Here is their attorney threatening one person that complained with a claim for cost for litigation:


My client, PoliticalOpinionsOfAmerica.org, has shared with me your email in which you threaten legal action against it based upon the Telecommunications Consumer Privacy Act, the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, and/or the Federal Do Not Call Registry.

PoliticalOpinionsofAmerica.org does not engage in any activity that falls under Federal telemarketing/telephone statutes (i.e., the Telephone Consumer Protection Act and the Federal Trade Commission’s Telemarketing Sales Rule). PoliticalOpinionsOfAmerica.org delivers political opinion and survey calls, and these are exempted under these federal statutes/regulations. In addition, PoliticalOpinionsOfAmerica.org does not engage in any activity that falls within the pertinent statutes of the State of Colorado. Accordingly, any action that you file against my client would be frivolous, and thus subject to a claim by my client for its costs associated with defending against same.

My client also immediately complies with any request to opt-out of any future calls delivered by my client, even though under Federal and State law, it is under no obligation to do so. Accordingly, if you have asserted an opt-out request, your telephone number has already been added to my client’s internal Do Not Call list. In any event, as of my writing of this email, your phone number has in fact been placed on my clients internal Do Not Call list.

This correspondence in no way provides you with permission or authorization to serve notice upon me or my office with regard to any action you may file against my client.

Here is what the New York City Bar Association had to say when Joe wanted to be a judge:


Joseph W. Sanscrainte
Not approved by reason of the candidate’s failure to affirmatively demonstrate that he possesses the requisite qualifications for the court for which he is a candidate

Personally, I would never use Caribbean Cruise Line because their representative, Political Opinions of America, in my opinion are are scum.

Hey everyone, with the help of my local police department in Tuscon, AZ, I've proceeded to trace the harassing phone calls down to a business in Belmont, Massachusetts. I've discovered information about the owner of the establishment via google and I'm in the process in filing a law suit against this guy. From my research I've discovered, his name is Chris Perron and it appears he's pissed off a lot of other people and business owners (according to negative feedback on his Merchant Circle account as well as other places). You guys can even see it for yourself, just type the guy's name (Chris Perron) and the business (Datboys Data Recovery) into a google search engine, you can see that guy has got some serious problems and definitely needs psychiatric help. So long story shot, if you have also been receiving death threats and harassment from this guy like I have then please contact me via email so I can link you with some references to put this creep to a stop and end the harassment. By the way everyone, Satan destroys his own!
Please email me at anon09176@live.com if you have questions/concerns.on this, I have a lot more information regarding this.

This number is a scam. It's not a political survey. That's just a ruse, and a loophole around the do not call registry. The "survey" is there in a attempt to make it exempt from the do not call rules, but it's really a scam to sell you an overpriced cruise. If you have the time, keep them on the line as long as possible. To them time is money, so use as much of it as you desire.

Not only has this company called my unlisted and do not call home phone, they also called my cell, also on the do no call. Well if they want my opinion. Impeach Obama, Michelle does not need any more vacations on the tax payers dime, nor does he. It's time politicians need to start paying out of their own pocket first and then go thru a justification process submitting their expenses like the rest of us, or MAKE IT AVAILABLE via an online public records request. Let's see how many more hookers and prostitutes the taxpayers have paid for. This last fiasco with the secret service can not be a singular incident. I sure the prostitute was quite an educated women raising five (5) children. (wink) She sure knew how to catch them with their pants down. HURRAY FOR STAY AT HOME and BREASTFEEDING MOMS!

I've been on the Do Not Call list for ages - both my home and my cell phones. I received an unsolicited call (on my cell) from 425-658-8952, offering a free cruise to the Bahamas if I answered a 30 second political questionnaire. I followed through more out of curiosity, and discovered that the questions took about 3- 4 minutes. It may have been a "push-poll" for the GOP in regard to presidential politics. Then, when I was to be transferred to an operator to arrange for my "free cruise to the Bahamas", I got a busy signal - of course! I decided to call back, and the recording announced that this was a non-working number - of course! Disgusting behavior on their part.

This is a scam pretending to be a political poll with a free cruise. Go to http://www.atg.wa.gov/BlogPost.aspx?id=29592 and see what the Attorney General of Washington is doing when a member of his department fell for it. It is done by two travel agencies in FL that want to make you attend a timeshare lecture with Robin Leach as the pitchman. If you *69 after hanging up, you will get
