Picked up call from "Name unknown". Caller was silent. Could clearly hear in the background that the caller was located inside a large call-center. I said, "Hello". Caller was silent. I said, "You probably have the wrong number." Caller said, "Yeah, I probably do... John. Have a nice day", and immediately hung-up.
They call me just before 9pm and leave no messages. I'm tired of getting these late calls that raise my blood pressure and make my heart pound because I think it might be a family emergency so I run for the phone.
They call constantly, and hang up. I'm sure it's an auto-dialer and connects who ever picks up first out of dozens of calls made, that's why most of us get a 'dead' line.
The company is indeed PCC, or Political Call Center based out of Mesa, AZ. They're business line (I found the number after a little searching online) is 480-649-2753
. I Also got a human being to answer 480-603-3795
. I asked to be removed from their list.
For those of you who want to cause them a little grief, call either number listed above...many, many times. Tie up their business lines. Call and hang up over and over again (Why not? That's what they're doing to us, right?)
Call came from Mesa, AZ to Kansas at 16:02 hours CST on 1-18-2011. Call not answered and no message left.
This number is in the the phone bank with 480-603-3796
, and belongs to the Political Center, 1201 S Alma School Road, Mesa, AZ, a well known telemarketer in the area.
Goodbye, and have a quality day; you will never be able to call my house again.
These a-holes call every day and never left a message, I finally answered and some jagoff aksed my political affiliation and I called him every foul name, including ethnicity, his female relatives, and references to oral sex.
Call came to Kansas from Political Center, 1201 S. Alma School Road, Suite 10500, Mesa, AZ 85210-1121. Call not answered and no message left.Caller ID said Political Call

Message for 'not a loser': Please post your address.
stated is was a political action call center. I called back and there was a recording advised that political calls were not subject to the DNC list, but they would be happy to place me on their internal DNC list and to leave a message. Unfortunately the system would not let me leave a message
9/24/10: 6:00 PM I've received several of these calls this week. Usually, I do not answer them. Because my husband is napping, I quickly picked up the phone and disconnected it. Today I called the number back and received a recording telling me that they are PCC a Political Corporation or something like that. At the end, I was told I COULD have my phone number removed, which I did, and then told me to have a blessed day. I left my number and told them I despise having someone tell me to have a blessed day. I told them I hope they have an expletive miserable day and to quit calling my number.
I get the same 2 numbers calling all the time,,,I made it easy and blocked them/
I am @#$@#$ tired of this political crap. I make it a policy to vote against anyone that calls me.
Annoyed and now I Am PRO ABORTION!
Prolife Campaign for protection of unborn fetuses. Just tell them you are PRO ABORTION and abortion will prevent these s--t heads from propagating more annoying call center personnel. These s--t heads are also calling from 480-649-2753
Mesa Az. phone numbers.
Just remember to tell them you support abortion, it doesn't matter what your real opinion is it just upsets these annoying bastards!
Calls every few days. Hangs up if I answer. Never leaves a message if I don't.
I just called the Mesa, AZ Police Department at 480-644-2211
. You can call them, as well.
You can also call your local police department, and have your local police work with the Mesa, AZ police.
It's illegal, and if we report it, we can get this person put away.
"so F U jerks out there talkin crap, show some damn respect"
If the mental cripple who posted that would simply appear on my porch, it'd leave with its nose driven into the back of its skull.
not a loser Jun 11th, 2010
VI called 480-603-3795
and got a live person. I was told Margaret Denello is the person in charge. She was not in. I express my opinion to Tomasita.
I received calls even after I requested them to stop calling. They have 2 numbers 480-603-3796 and 480-649-2753
. If a lot of people were to call these numbers several times a day and leave annoying messages it just might get their attention.
Got this call for the first time. Hate it, hate it, hate it !! I just want to be left alone !!
3-6 calls a day How can you stop this
It's a scam, people. Like those people that call from FOP saying they are collecting money for fallen police officers, they have no affiliation with the group they claim to be a part of. They collect as many "donations" as they can, skim a VERY high percentage off the top, and give a small pittance to the actual cause. Anyone that is working for a genuine cause and looking for charitable donations is not going to be rude to you and make you angry at them.
you folks have no idea how far off from reality you are with respect to these call centers and i mean that in the nicest possible way
called them up "this is the PCC - we exist to connect non profit political action committees to voters. Please call back at regular business hours"
Call after call with no message left on machine, day after day..........
When will it end???????????
Number keeps calling..we let answering machine pick it up, but they never leave a message.
I answered....no one responded...only silence for a few seconds then a click. Call did not drop for minute or two.
These telemarketers list themselves as "political service centers" to avoid violating the "do not call' legislation. They change numbers often in case they are reported or their number is blocked. Usually they pass themselves off as a credit card company wanting to refinance your debt, a loan company looking for a client, a charity, etc. I have often wondered if they get paid on the number of contacts they make - even an answering machine would be a contact. They don't seem to care whether you answer or not. I received a call from 480-603-3796 and let my answering machine pick it up, but they didn't leave a message. I'll add this to my list of blocked numbers.
Sorry, my mistake. I typed in the wrong number for the message left by Tony. Please disregard the message below.
Caller left a message saying his name is Tony. He says he's from the "_______ Service Center" (missing word sounds like "proja" or "projeck") He says he's calling, because in the last 18 months we entered our name in a drawing to win a new car, and our name was drawn to win one of their top four prizes. He gave a call-back number: 866-601-8851
ext. 1001, and said it was in our best interests to call him soon.
The strange thing is, according to another site that traces numbers, the number that called us is a cell phone in Chicago Heights. We have not entered any drawings to win a car or anything else.
is a political call center, why did it show up on my caller ID as Communication G?
I meant BELOW
SUM1SPECIAL Jul 10th, 2009
I agree with the comment above mine. That person seems very smart. PCC called me several times and I donated to a very kind man, god bless the work of PCC, they are doing a great job, KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!!!!
SUM1SPECIAL Jul 10th, 2009
All of your comments are hillarious. See, PCC is obviously a POLITICAL CALL CENTER. Simply, they call you, read you a script, ask you for money for several different campaigns. Just as any other call center, a do not call list is in place, whether you are put on this list or not is at the callers discretion. I used to work for the same exact company and location, hell, I've probable called some of you. I know for certain that people who were rude to me, I labeled as "out/not home" as oppose to "DNC(do not call)" . When I was working there I would easily make over 4 or even 5 hundred calls a day. Don't waste your time being rude, simply state that you would like to be on the DNC list, say "Thank you, have a great day" and hang up. If you order fast food and treat the staff like shit, they mess with your food, it's the same concept with call centers. Only they bug you at home and harass you like hell. Also, I was paid $11.00 base pay, + comission, most of my checks were well over $1,000.00 bi-weekly, so F U jerks out there talkin crap, show some damn respect. Alot of these people are felons and ex-convicts, ur a prick on the phone but I bet you people would be scared as hell in person. lol
I answered the phone.... no one was there.
I used to work for this company, actually, during high school. It's a room at the top floor of a tall bank building full of high school kids who need money and druggies who cannot get any other good job. Half of the people don't believe in the cause they are calling you about and the other half don't care either way. If the caller reaches a certain quota they get monthly bonusses, that is why they are so persistent.
no message, no brain. head never seen the light of day?
CALLED 6/01/2009 WANTING TO KNOW MY VIEWS ON ABORTION. I HUNG UP!

I just received a call from this number (480-603-3796).
There was no one on the line so I hung up.
I sometimes get this sort of thing from 866 calls.

When I answered they asked for the wrong name- I said no one here by that name- then they said the right name ( my husbands) and then mine and I said this is she- I was then told it was from a right to life political group who wanted to save lives. Then I was asked "Are you pro-life, pro-choice, or somewhere in between" I replied that I was somewhere in between, and then i hear this laughing and laughing and the women says "No you wasn't" and hung up.
I called back and waited for the answering machine- I was told on that they were not held to the same standards as other calls, so they don't fall under the "do not call" list. But, we could be taken off their internal list, but that could take 5 days- blah balh balh leave your number. And then 'have a blessed day" My message question their blessing, and that women is so un christ like and do not call me again. I am also turning th enumber into our state AG and the local station and the GOP becuase I can tell you that is where it is coming from!!
They called once (so far!) today while polls are open for a statewide ballot initiative.
They left no message. They use the political exception to the Do-Not-Call registry, but I commend them for saying so and not trying to hide.
I told my family members to call me on my cell phone after 6:00 PM, then each night I forward my land line to 202-456-1111
. I figure these calls will stop pretty quickly once these suspicious-sounding calls arrive at the White House switchboard in Washington D.C.!
I did not answer # unrecognized. I added it to my Qwest # rejection list. Great service!!!!!!!!
Political Call also uses 720.971.4690 Wireless Caller. Legally, what can be done to put these scammers out of business?
Says "political call." I don't answer
Geeeezus people, get a clue. Read the posts here. These call are not from any political organization! It is a money scam!
John in CT Apr 03rd, 2009
second call today thursday april 2 2009. Young woman identifies herself with pro-life group asks for me by name, am I pro-life or pro-choice? I told her that every time her group calls and pesters me I would make a donation to planned parenthood and any other abortion group that I could find. Maybe if congress would make abortion mandatory for people who can't feed and educate them they wouldn't grow up to work in annoying call centers. Third call this week, Remember if you can't feed them don't make them!
Quoting Annie, annie Pro life? Ask them . Why dont you take in and support all of the unwanted children in the world?
Four calls in six days from this number. That's a bit much! Politicians should have no more right than anyone else to call private numbers.
usually do not answer but this time did and nothing before the click to disconnect
T. Robinson Mar 30th, 2009
Someone called from this number and they left a fake crying message on voice mail. Creepy!
Have called several times, never leave a message, this was their most recent call.
I don't care if they are prolife or not! Perhaps they are why God allows abortion!!!
Frank called with the Prolife campaign and asked me if I was pro life or pro choice. I verified his name and who he was representing (prolife campaign). I asked him if he was aware of the no call list. He said he is aware of the no call list, however, since this was a political call it does not apply. He said he would add my number to the political no call list and disconnected the call.
They are looking for and want to activate pro-life supporters.
This is PCC who connects Political Action Committees with voters. They allege they are not subject to the do not call registry. Report them anyway so they will stop.
Robert with archaic neo-con view of life, if Obaba is not an "American", he would not be able to be President in the first place! No answer on this phone, next time I'll just pick up and leave the phone off the hook, don't need some pro-life whackos wasting my time.
Truth hurts Mar 09th, 2009
It was for abortion subject.
Sharon Young Mar 06th, 2009
There's no election right now...why are they calling? Several times a week, never a message.
i used the *60....goodbye annoying fuckers
this number calls daily and sometimes twice a day.....caller ID says Political Call
This number called me frequently. I never answered and they left no message. Well tonight I answered. They asked for me by name. I asked 'who is calling?' They said something about 'pro life'. I said 'Hold on. I'll go get her'. Then I set the phone down and went about my business. I don't really know how long I had her on hold. She had hung up by the time I got out of the shower.
hold please Feb 27th, 2009
Pro life? Ask them . Why dont you take in and support all of the unwanted children in the world?
I get calls from this number. Called ID says: Political Call. Obviously, the "do not call" list doesn't work doesn't apply to politicians. When I answer the phone, the computer hangs up. Robert, get a life, dude.
soundmandj Feb 24th, 2009
They keep calling and just hang up. Even if I answer the phone.
These people have been calling daily at random times for weeks. I finally picked up. I suspect is IS political since it started off with a pro-life survey. I excused myself after the first question.
These people have called my number 5 times today. Never answered it but computer hung up on them all 5 times.
I keep getting these crazy pro-lifers calling me. They called on 2/9 and on 2/16. They are crazy. I am a pro-choice person and would never ever support these crazy people. where did they get my number. Caller i.d. says tempe, az
WTF? They keep calling me every night. Also on my notables of annoying #s...888-888-8888
, 480,603-3796, 999-999-9999
, 904,259-4351, 978-570-2296
. This is just from the last two weeks. What is the use of having my # registered with donotcall.gov, when a holes like this obviously dont care.
Pissed off too Feb 12th, 2009
f*&#$ing obama b.s political call ! first time they just hung up as soon as i answered..trying to see if i like obamas b.s socialist plan ! ha! obamas is nt even an american!
Most recently we have received hang-up calls on 2/5, 2/6 and 2/10 from this Tempe, AZ number.
Ok, people here we go. If a call comes into your home and it is a number of the wall, like this one, answer the call then hit # * # * over and over and over then hang up. These calls say Political, but they are "fishing". They call your home to see what times of the day someone actually picks up. They can say they are from anywhere or any form of Charity or political firm, but they are compiling a list to sale to other telemarketing companies or charities. Ok, so when you get a call from one and they threaten or harras you, just hang up, then invest in a recorder you can record them with. When you actually get a recording, then report to FCC, FBI, local police or the manager of that company. Each time you talk to them or just hang up, they make money. If you make them hang up first, no money. So, when they call and actually speak, have fun like so many of these people have said on this report. But, if they don't say a word, hit the keys. Reason why, is if it is indeed a computer system, the computer will get confused and kick out that number thinking it is a fax, business, federal, telemarket number, etc... It's time politicians, charities (not good ones that don't call for money) and telemarketers fear us, not the other way around. Just a quick note. When you get all of that crap mail, save it and then send it to the address of this number, or stuff a ridiculus amount of the junk mail into one of those self payed envelopes and send it in, doesn't cost you a dime, but they have to open it and spend quality time opening a bunch of JUNK MAIL!!!
This stupid number keeps calling and calling my house. What the hell is it and how do I stop them? They call at all odd hours.
Mary C. L. Feb 06th, 2009
Second or third time they have called in the past month. I have * 69 twice, to get the number. No anwser after I say "Hello". They just hang up. Seem to always catch me at a bad time, when I struggled to anwser the phone. Very frustrating, we are on the DNC list as well.
I called the number back last night because we have received at least 3 calls the past couple weeks and it sounded like a telemarketing company in the background. I could barely understand the person that answered.
I've received several such calls. I never answer and they never leave a message. I'd not have known who they are since only "TEMPE AZ" appears on the caller ID, but according to WhitePages.com:
Political Call Center
1201 S Alma School Rd
Mesa, AZ 85210

Aren't the elections over ?
Keeps calling.. They hang up when I answer, if I dont answer they dont leave a message
They call and call, but as soon as we let it go to VM, they hang up. We are on the "Do not call list," but perhaps since they are a "non-profit," they are somehow getting around it.
lookslike someone trying to set up repubs as pain in butt nuisance callers
Calls every day, except Christmas. Caller ID shows "Tempe AZ".
Just call the number and they will put you on their own do not call list.
phone ran a few times...I did not answer. They did not leave a message on recorder.
Id themselves as Right to Life.
TJ can I have your wife's number?

PCC x Agent Nov 13th, 2008
POLITICAL CALL. Lots of calls, no messages. I'm on DNC list as well... AND the calls continue even after the elections?!?
For those that may not be aware, political calls are exempt from DNC list. Politicans didn't want to ban their own telemarketing.
Answer and just hang up
Home Phone Oct 17th, 2008
I also get calls from this number. Yes it is political. Just so you know, political calls are not subject to he Do Not Call restrictions. They are allowed to call.
www.anywho.com reverse search shows the same as 411.com:
Political Call Center
1201 S Alma School Rd
Mesa, AZ 85210
the guy who called me at least identified himself as from the Republican political something-or-other...
caller id just said out of area, they hang up after the third ring, they do not leave a message...I have had many, many calls from this number
No message on voice mail. Caller ID says Out of Area.
I donated $25.00, then I thought better. So I stopped payment on the check. Just in case they weren't "legit".
I work for a telemarketing company and it doesn't matter whether you're on the DNC list or not. Political calling, like surveys and existing business relationship sales is still permitted. If you want them to stop calling, ask them to please remove your name and number from THEIR list (the telemarketing company's list). It won't prevent other telemarketing companies from calling you for similar reasons, but it'll prevent that telemarketing company from calling you for any reason ever again. If they continue to call, THEN you have a valid FCC complaint!
