The company calling is "1 2 1 Direct Response" (formerly Telestar Marketing). They're calling on behalf of Comcast, or so they claim. I grilled Karen, the PM floor manager for about 45 minutes 610-891-7100 x2665 about autodialers (their system of calling multiple numbers at once, talking to the first one that picks up and hanging up on the rest). I wanted to know how many folks they call simultaneously, but of course she didn't have that information. There are supposedly multiple call centers, she is in PA but the calls are originating from Westin, VA.

These people do work for Comcast. I found an interesting document on the Web at http://216.239.51.104/search?q=cache:gH3ViFmGxrMJ:www.ftc.gov/os/comments/dncpapercomments/04/telestarmarketing.pdf+telestar+marketing&hl=en&ct=clnk&cd=3&gl=us&client=firefox-a

The president of the company is one Alexander Saxoft and he happily gave his phone number on the bottom of his charming letter to the FTC --

The number seems to work. His extension rings "Manager's Desk."

Enjoy.

Here's the details I got from the net about this company.
Website: http://www.telestarmktg.com/

Comcast is one of their clients and they specialize in direct marketing and surveys. So I'm pretty sure this is the company. I tried to call the 800 number listed and I got the message that I cannot call this number from my area.

I'm getting calls from this number for the past month or so. Sometimes 4-5 times a day. They never leave a message and when I pick the call, all I can hear is an engaged tone. I called the number back and they identified as TeleStar Marketing calling on behalf of Comcast. I left a message and hopefully they won't call me back.
