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.

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.

They pretend to be a survey. If you answer the survey, they'll give you a free cruise to the Bahamas. They're not interested in your opinion. It's a scam. Don't bother with them; just hang up. The "survey" is how they skirt the Do Not Call law.

Scam. Caller is an automated voice that says "Hello, this is John, from ??????. You have been selected to participate in a 30-second survey and for your participation you will receive a free trip to the Bahamas. " At that point, I hung up.

This scam has been going around for several months. The "survey" asks questions about national debt. Then, you are asked for a credit card number to "pay the taxes" on your free trip.

It's a scam to get your credit card information.

Press 9 to NOT participate and your number to be removed permanently.
Some machine message saying it's from "John from Political Opinions".

Upon calling back:
"You were called to participate in a survey and now the survey has expired. If you would not like to participate in future surveys, press 2." So, I press 2. Response: "You were called to participate in a survey and now the survey has expired. If you would not like to participate in future surveys, press 2." Repeat.

They're apparently on the prowl today. Just got the call. I answered and they actually hung up. Maybe because I answered with my business name.
