It was an automated call identifying itself as a company called "Data Research" and asking yes/no questions about pets.
Called 7X between 9/18 & 9/22. Calling number back gets an invalid munber response(fast busy). Number was formerly held by TShirts.com in Chicago but they moved out of the city. Probably the same right wingers from 571-522-1575
As I suspected, Verizon says they "unable to regulate how phone service is used" by any of their customers. They gave me a list of things you could do, but it doesn't look like any would work. I did put in a complaint to https://www.donotcall.gov/ but if this idiot is considered a "political organization" he has the right to call us. Not fair, but I guess we're stuck. I don't plan to spend any money calling this idiot's home cuz others appeared to have called and it doesn't seem to matter. ggrrr...
very frustrating, to answer and no one says a thing
Whu not just start calling this Joe Fulton guy every five minutes with a "survey".
They just keep on calling..No messages left.
Caller ID reported number and
Asked me if I was a registered voter; asked me if I considered myself "African-American", at which point I hung up.
I am in ZIP 45247.
Questions on dogs, age, etc. Sounds like thieves.
How anoying they keep calling twice a day
I don't answer it. They leave a message that they are taking a survey and will call later.
I did a reverse lookup and found this is a land line # from Braddock VA, carried by Verizon. I just sent verizon an email referring to this website and asked them to stop this phone number. I'll let you know if I hear anything -- or if I don't.
Caller ID: 571-522-1575
Reading these other entries, I'm glad I didn't answer the phone.
Buy a cheap telezapper to get removed from their call list-then pass it on to a friend. what a crock
Time: Sep 21, 2006 10:13:21 AM
Incoming Voice Mail from 5715221575 - name unavailable and no message
2nd call in since last night. Didn't answer it.
Violaton of the "National Do Not Call Registry" policy as they are masking the real intentions of the call by stating it's a survey. Please report them here: https://www.donotcall.gov/ click file a complaint. If enough of us file it will be all over for them. Good luck!!
CallerID reported FEDR on the line. After reading all this I'm glad we ignored it. I HATE election time!!! Isn't it enough to sit through the mindless political TV ads?
Multiple calls, each saying Centerville, VA
Called at 7:15 didn't know who so I didn't answer. Now I know who.
Caller ID FEDR--cal atleast three times a day.
Heard a recording saying it was a survey--then I hung up
called at 8:15pm
said UNKNOWN CALLER on caller id. I answered on third ring and no one was there. Glad I didn't actually have to talk to one of these weirdos. Thanks for the comments.
Usually they call with political messages. Today they said they were doing a "pet survey" and asked if we owned a dog, and our ages. Weird.
don't want your unsolicitated phone calls for any reason

27 Calls in one day....
while I was at work, what I'd give to have this persons home #, so I could annoy the *&%$ out of them.
I don't answer any call that comes up on my caller ID that isn't from family, friends or work. Glad I didn't answer this one at 8:30pm. 9/18/06
Calling 3-4 times a day. Needs to stop- way to much of a waste of air time!
We should forward all day long to the Politicians
FEDR shows up on my caller ID from the number above. We receive calls from these people 3 to 5 times a day.
If this turns out to be a political survey, I'm going to tell them *exactly* what I think. ;-P
They've called 3X in the last few days, Thu 9/14, Fri 9/15, & today 9/18. Reverse lookup said Land Line in Braddock, VA. No answer when I call them, and the numbers 571-522: 1500, 1574, & 1576 are not happening, so my guess is it's some wanker's PC just scrolling through numbers in order. The "anon" post who gave the link to a Joe Fuiten from Bothell gets 3 Big Thumbs Up, since Fuiten's bio gave the name of the sponsoring organization The Committee For Religious Freedom. Fuiten's church phone # is 425-488-3600
. If you're upset, don't call & scream at the nice girl who answers the phone. Likewise, when you call his home #, 425-486-5245
, don't yell at the nice lady who answers, just tell her we all hate unsolicited calls, & explain Karma to her. Now I'm gonna give Comcast a call & see about how to block numbers
Marty Anacortes Sep 18th, 2006
They call my home typically 5+ times per day, and I have several others that call numerous times each day too. Thank heavens for caller ID. Unless we recognize the caller, we don't answer the phone.
My phone has rung 3x today and all are from Unknown Name. My phone # is Unlisted . I agree that they do not leave a message-people I too ignore. Why is it my number is Unlisted-but yet they keep calling.
Darla A. Greene Sep 17th, 2006
Spew your BS somewhere else.
Joe Fuiten, the man delivering the recorded message, is a pastor at Cedar Park Assembly of God Church in Bothell, Wa.
I was pissed like everyone else about this and actually called the Groen campaign to complain. I got a voicemail back saying that they weren't responsible and that someone was attempting to sabotage their campaign. Is it true? I don't know, but the original call was so nasty that I'm tempted to believe it.
it was something about voting for the supreme court justices
Could be BIAW or it could be some astro-turf group created by "The American Tort Reform Association," which is headquarted in VA.
Republicans are Evil. This is the Building Industry again, trying to get their bulldozers and butt-ugly subdivisions all the way to the foot of Mount Rainier.
Republicans are evil. But even more evil is the Homebuilders Association backing this crap.
David - Seattle Sep 16th, 2006
thank god for caller ID.
They call even on sunday.
I don't answer because I suspect they are bogus pests.
Thanks to those of you who have answered and posted here.
Call received 9/13/06, Caller ID said unavailable and the number. I didn't answer it, but came online and punched in the number to get an idea of who it was, and I found this site in the process.
I did not answer and I am happy also I did not waste my time thank god for CALLER ID
Did not answer. Glad I did not waste the time.
9.13.06, name unknown, and it was a missed call
Some pre recorded political survey. I wasn't home. There was a message in my voicemail.
Called today with a bogus recorded survey but went on to trash the democrat (Baron Hill) running against incumbant representative Mike Sodrel in Indiana. How low with the GOP go??
I call them back,...
I'll try again at midnite
Keep calling with no message. Call id said unknown. Seems like the no call list should do something about this.
I've had several family members receive the same call.
I haven't answered their calls, they are now calling twice a day (morning and evening) and not left any message. It annoys me to death that political polls and campaign calls are exempt from the do not call list. I don't want to talk to them any more than I do some telemarketer.
This number has come up three times on caller ID. The second time it came up it said name unavailable, the other two times it said FEDR. The most recent call came in this AM, 9/12 at 9:50 AM at 9:50...no message...line busy when I rty to call back. We are registered with the do not call list
This is the second time they called, they were from the republican party for an opinion surve
Asked patent questions, pro live, ect. If we were going to vote republican.
I think this party could do better than pay someone to ask these stupid questions! Maybe pay off 1000000% of our dept.
Mom always said pay your bill first.
I get several calls a day from these idiots. It is a computerized call so there is no way to tell them to stop the calls. I hope they realize that this is not helping their political aspirations.
Keeps calling won't leave a message. Caller ID shows Unknown Caller.
It was some sort of survey. I hung up before they got through the first question.
I don't answer numbers that don't identify. Glad I didn't. 7:58 pm
They call multiple times every day and don't leave a message so I never pick it up.
I have very important people in my life that are in with the feds and you never know when they might be calling you from one of their prisons so never call me at my ############ again because this is crap trying to get survay's like this
I don't really know who this people are,
And why they keep calling me every day
But they will never get a chance from me,
Cus i ignore then. I don't waste my time with
This kind of phone calls. I just hope somebody
Do something to stop this freaks phone calls.
Glad I didn't answer.
Another WV Pete Sep 08th, 2006
These people are now calling 4 or 5 times per day. Say they are Common Cause RI
Stop calling my ###### thank you
Rick Darling Sep 08th, 2006
They called twice today on 9/7/06. All it said on my caller ID was FEDR.
They're calling people in northern West Virginia with negative "survey questions" about Rep. Alam Mollohan.
This was a blatent push poll "survay". When it didn't get the answers it wanted, it went on to warn me about the bad decision I had made and threatened to send info that would change my mind. Definitely related to the jerks at 571-522-6400
They call several times a day and I never answer it because it doesn't show a name or even say "unavailable".
This push poll was used to prejudice voters against the Democratic candidate for Congress in Iowa, Leonard Boswell.
This was the most skewed and unscientific poll I've ever had. Surveys should never ask questions and refer to anything as "unfair". What a crock!!
Keeps calling my cell phone for political survey
This is some BS political survey
I believe this number is associated with 571-522-6400
