This is PO AMERICA .....AKA .......PACIFICTEL
Caller id = YAHOO
Now they are falsifying the caller ID

Repeated, unabated calls, pretending to be survey and/or political call, in order to skirt the do-not-call laws.
Real purpose is to scam into a vacation offer/cruise/vacation club, etc
They'll stop for a while, then restart, usually with a new phone number
Scammer computer calling cell phones, as well
They pretend to have an option to be removed from a so-called :"subscriber" list, but I tested it, It's phony.
This last call is proof of that, they changed cloned phone number & faked caller ID
Legal action needs to be taken against them

Exact same recorded message I've gotten from 253-382-9987, 503-468-5144 and now 360-529-6901. This time Caller ID says YAHOO. If you pick up, it gives you the option to answer some questions for a Bahamas cruise or Press '2' to be permanently removed from their call list. If you don't pick up, but call the number back, it says the survey time has expired and you can Press '1' to be permanently removed from their call list. First, I've found the DNC list doesn't apply here at all, so don't even think it will. Second, Press '1' or '2' all you want to be permanently removed from their call list. They just re-invent themselves with a new phone number the next week. This is getting really annoying.

When you call that number back, it says it is a survey. You will then be prompted to hit "1" to opt out of their "list".

From what I understand from another such calling service, even though someone is on the no-call list, they claim the loop hole is that they dial numbers randomly. The law needs to close this loop hole.

When they piss off enough people, someone will hack into their system I'm sure.

I recognized the Caller ID name of "PO AMERICA" as TELMARKETING SPAM and a **SCAM** and just picked up the phone then immediately hung up to break the call and 'confuse' the ROBODIALER. That seems to help cut down on the number of REPEAT calls from these numbers, although this SCAM OUTFIT has called on numerous other numbers in the past.

But, if you are home/have your cell on you, try this. It may help to slow these SOBs DOWN!

I also reported COMPLAINT to the DNC List, faithfully as I always do. STRENGTH IN NUMBERS, People. If you are registered, FILE A COMPLAINT EACH and EVERY TIME!!!

A way that I got people to stop calling is to "fax' them a request to their 800 number... every 5 seconds for 999 times. Gee, did I put in the wrong number... sorrrry... Am I tying up your line like you do mine... sorrrrry. Have 1000 people trying to 'fax' something to the company or to the scum bag lawyer and they will take your number off the call list.

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.
