Multiple calls on 2014-02-08 and 2014-02-09
3 calls a day are unacceptable. We don't answer unknown callers. We finally told them the person they were asking for is not at our number. I hope they won't call anymore.
Twice on a Sunday!! Fricken rude!!!!
My caller ID read "Bernett Rsch." I'm guessing the "Rsch" stands for "Research." A polling company?
Only answered because caller ID showed personal name. Caller ask to speak to the person responsible for advertising at this business. Told him not interested and hung up. Doesn't sound like someone doing research
I just filed a formal complaint w/ the FCC regarding this company who calls at all hours and torments my dying child.. I urge others to do the same - let's get them fined or hopefully put them out of business

Bernett Research never attempts to sell any product or service, nor do we release the names or phone numbers of people we survey to other firms for marketing purposes. The purpose of our call is to engage people in an interesting and sometimes entertaining survey where we gain opinions generally for the purpose of improving products and services.
As a survey research company, we are not required to subscribe to the National Do Not Call Registry - however it is never our intent to disturb people when we call them at home. If you wish to be removed from our internal calling lists, please click here.

ALSO RECEIVED CALLS A COUPLE OF DAYS PRIOR WILL LOOK UP AND ADD TO REPORT. NEVER A MESSAGE.
Called on my cell, no message
I received a call from this number. Didn't recognize it so I didn't answer. If they can't take the time to leave a message, I can't take the time to be bothered.
In addition to my comment below, they called MY phone (with MY name on the bill) and asked for my husband by his name!!? AND they called HIS number looking for him as well. Exactly how are they getting this information, especially since all of our numbers are on the DNC registry.
This telemarketer called my phone even though all of my numbers are on the DNC list. They said they were "researchers". I also reported the number on the DNC Registry. I strongly urge others to take that step as well.
don't pick up - telemarketer
Received call from these person as well on numerous occasions. this why I am reporting.
Oh phone number was 503-575-7964
. Washington calling so.cal--id: bernett r. -aka 360network. What the hell ever happened to privacy?
No message left. From the other comments left, will not be answering the phone.
This appears to be a political research group. Go to http://bernett.com/
They think they are too good to leave a message! I am going to turn them in to the Federal No-Call list which I am on. They have called both my cell phone and home phone!!!

received 2 calls from them today. first call I did not answer - no message left. 2nd call came in at 8:55 p.m. I answered. It was pretty much a call center but I didn't give them much time to speak to me. I asked for supervisor and spoke to him, told them not to call back again. Let's see if that happens
Keeps calling and leaves no messages. We got scared, but I googled the phone number and got
To get your number removed from their list, go to the Web site at www.bernett.com. There is a link on the right where you can request that your phone number be removed from their call list. All you have to do is enter your number. No other information is required. I just tried this, and am hoping it works. Their calls have been very persistent.

Ostensibly a political poll, probably designed to persuade as much as to obtain information. I answered the questions but refused to give my name. If it were a true legitimate poll, they never would have asked. Probably sponsored by one of those Super PACS. Just as well that I was able to waste a lot of their time. I refuse to give my name on the phone to anyone who calls and doesn't already know it, I don't care what they're asking about or what they're selling or giving away.
Caller stated they were doing a customer satisfaction survey for a bank that we happen to have an account with. Told them I didn't have time to do a survey, hoping they would back off. They then asked when I would be able to take their survey. Appears to be a legitimate research outfit, however I don't get involved with over-the-phone surveys.
I believe this is a true research group. I did answer after receiving many calls over several weeks. A nice young lady asked for 5-7 minutes of my time to answer a survey about newspaper usage. Her first question was to ask what county I live in. After I told her, she said the quota for that country was complete. Thanked me for my time and rang off.
So, I don't know. Unless they're trying to associate counties with phone numbers for who-knows-what I think it's legit. If it IS legit, we have no recourse. POLITICAL CALLS, CHARITY CALLS, AND SURVEY/RESEARCH CALLS are exempt from the Federal Do Not Call list. But you can report them anyway just in case. :-) Portland, OR IS suspicious. Atlanta, GA area.
Someone with name of R Bennett keeps blowing up my phone with calls, sometimes 2-3 times a day. I'm on a no-call list. I tried calling them back and you get a recording "sorry this mailbox is full" meaning you can't leave any messages. I believe this is purposeful and that these calls, sadly are going to continue. I've answered before and no one is there. Also I get robo calls from the 503 area code. There is an alarm company at the 503 areas code trying to drum up business outside of the law by violating the no call list. Be aware, jerks are on the loose!
getting calls from the same Bernett RSCH #, and as soon as answ. machine starts ( after 3 rings) it auto hangs up. We are also on the DNC list, and am starting to think that this too is a joke. UGH!
Calls DAILY, will be blocking this one today. Erg

Just got a call. Wish this a-hole would leave a message. Does anyone text back,that might be fun for him or her.
I live in Atlanta, and on 2 separate occasions (most recently last night), I noticed a suspicious car outside my home at the same time we received a call from subject number. In both instances, I approached the car, and the guy sped off; with headlights off no less. Call me paranoid, but I think there's more going on here. Does anyone else have pending issues with Wells Fargo?
Apparently they are a survey company (Bernett Research - http://bernett.com/). They've called numerous times over the past couple of weeks - when I've answered, no response. I went to their website (thanks Julie) and
There is active enforcement against actual violators of the Telemarketing Sales Rule, the legal partner of the DNC registry. The registry is for telemarketers, meaning sales, meaning all surveyors are exempt. This fact was not kept secret from you when you registered your numbers.
You will need to take your complaints straight to the source of the calls and ask that your number(s) are added to an internal no-call list. This may have to be set to paper and sent via USPS Certified with return card, should the call center prove stubbornly deaf.

Called the home phone and then my cell phone both phones are on the do not call list they did not leave a message how can the keep getting away with this what is the do not call list for if no one does something to the people\company's can abuse it anyway?
Keeps calling. Leave me alone you bastards...
Survey, very very long, repetitive questions about health care
Called 1 time on 9-21-11 around 4pm.
they call many times a day I pick up they hang up GETTING REAL OLD
hung up immediately upon my answering the phone. i am on the no call list.
Listed as Bernett R. Left no message.
Goto their website...http://www.bernett.com/telephone-surveys-web-surveys-and-focus-groups/...and u can remove yourself from their phone calls. I really hope this works?! Just got a call tonight, but they didn't leave message. Get the Bernett Rsch on my caller ID too.
Got Survey about cellphone on Metro PCS
Didn't answer, they did not leave message
They have been calling for weeks now, sometimes several times a day. I finally went to their website (they are a legit marketing firm) and found a option to have my number removed. Hopefully this will stop these annoying calls.
Caller hung up even before my answering machine announcement was finished. This started just recently, but have received several calls
Did not answer the phone. No message was left
They have called me FOUR times today! What the hell? Still not sure who this is or what it's about but would like to know.
called back to back..one showed as Bernett the other same number but unknown
Called again. I finally picked up and said hello and the phone disconnected.
This happens often.
This number comes from Bernett Research in BOS, MA.. They have called me 4 to 5 times a day for the last week. Even though I have asked them to remove my number. They also say they are exempt from the national do not call list. The founders name is Bernyce Hayes and Her contact number in Boston is 617-746-2600
EXT 2611. I plan on calling Ms Hayes everyday untill the calls to my house stop.
Caller ID was Bernett R
I did not pick up and they did not leave message.
Call was 5:32 pm EDT.
I have been receiving multiple calls from this company for days now. I ignore any calls that I don't recognize and they don't leave a message. It's very annoying but thank goodness for Caller ID.
Call our home at least twice daily, get the answering machine, will not leave a message.
Missed call @ 8:58 pm. No message, called back and got a busy signal
I live in Florida but my family is originally from Oregon. My caller ID just said "Bernett R" and the # 503-575-7964. I did not recognize the name and most of my remaining relatives which live out there are elderly. You can imagine what went through my mind… Oh no, who passed away?
I was so glad I did a reverse phone # search, I found this site and know this has nothing to do with my elderly relatives.
I am a big proponent of the Government program; "DoNotCall.gov". (I have my number listed for every phone I own.) I suggest everyone use it if you too are bothered by solicitation calls. They do caution you it will take several weeks for your number to be listed as a telephone number prohibited from receiving unwanted sales/survey type calls. This is a great program the Government started years ago. Your phone does not have to be unlisted or unpublished telephone number to use the service.
BTW, this is a legitimate government program meant to protect consumers from telephone fraudsters. The .gov extention on the end of the web address means it has to be a government-run website. Regardless of how you might feel about "Government Programs", if all their programs were this easy to use, understandable and had the safety in mind of all consumers, "Government Programs" would have a wonderful ring to it…okay, pun intended. (www.DoNotCall.gov)
They have called every day for the past week or so. Today they called three times. It sounds as if the best bet is to answer and tell them to remove your name from their list. Maybe we'll try that the next time.
Call came in at 7:20. I answered the phone, and whoever it was hung up without saying anything.
This call came in at 9:36 pm. I think that violates some law. Who should this be reported to?
Got a call at 9:30 from a woman who -- sounding like she had a mouthful of food -- that she was from a research company. Told her no but should have told her to take us off the call list because my wife said this firm has called nearly every week.
Called three times in less than two hours between 8-10pm. I answer and they hang up.
They called me after 10pm. Where are their manners!!!???? Call Cathy Williams at 208-232-8890
x 23 and complain. The manager at the time the call was made was named Trent Boot and he can be reached at 541-223-0050
. I suggest people who look 503-575-7964 up call the responsible individuals and complain. Oh, and by they way, Trent told me the company was called Mercury, even thought the name on my caller ID said Bernett Research. I filed a complaint with the FCC too. These people should be driven out of business for such abusive behaviors.
Call Type: Survey
I filed a complaint with the FCC since they woke me up at 10:38 PM.
I have receieved a call from this number twice and around 7pm and I never answer and they never leave a message. I called back and blocked my #. It goes to voicemail and says mailbox is full. Then hangs up, weird
I get a call from this number weekly...I do not answer and they do not leave a voice mail. Who are they? Why do they keep calling?
I have gotten this call every day for the past few weeks. Portland OR shows up on my phone also. They do not have the decency to leave a message. I finally answered the call and asked that my number be taken out of their system. The woman on the line was actually very nice and said I would receive no more phone calls; we will see.
The last couple of calls now have PORTLAND OR in the name field instead of repeating the phone number as I reported earlier. It looks like they are trying to confuse callers into picking up.
Now they are forging the name portion of the callerid to hide their identity. No the phone number shows up in BOTH fields.
picked up phone, immediately heard loud background noise of huge boilerroom call center, woman shouted HELLO!!!!! - hung up
