Called @9pmct and woke my child up-called back and no response!

May 4th, 2014 Fedup AL

Same with me, I answered, and there is no one there. Ignorant bastards!

February 22nd, 2014 Tatia

Central Marketing Group BEWARE! After receiving numerous calls from you AHOLES with hang ups every time, I researched the number I am being called from and found this blog. You crack pipes call my house over and over and keep hanging up! That's ok because for EVERY single call I receive from now on, I will return a call back to the 212 number and blast your ears with my whistle! DO NOT call my house again! I have an extremely sick family member that I help care for and am always waiting on returned calls from doctors offices, etc. I DO NOT have time for your BS!

January 22nd, 2014 Beth Mimna GA

Don't know who this is. Didn't say anything when answered. Called at 9:41 PM. A little late for anyone to be calling someone

May 19th, 2013 M. Allen GA

Annoying one there.

May 13th, 2013 Jack M VA

Annoying Nothing! Nuisance Call.

January 27th, 2013 Larry Fravel WV

These idiots have called my house 3 times in the last hour today. the first and thid times they showed on caller ID the 2nd time it was listed as "Unknown Caller". I answered the first 2 and got no repsonse to my "Hello". I ignored the third and will continue to do, but since I am on the Do Not Call List I am now reporting them, Doubt it will do any good, but at least I can say I did something.

January 6th, 2013 Unsure TX

They called 3 timnes in 1 hour and say nothing when you answer. I do hear talking in the back ground!

October 27th, 2012 polical Fraud MN

Places such as Delta Outsource Group (Debt Collector) will Spoof calls from various numbers and do these annoying hangups, dead air, foreign language, fraudulent advertising etc. to agitate the victims. Then they will call as themselves, for real, and be real polite. The theory behind this is that the people are so frusterated by the fraudulent and anoying phone calls prior to this, that they are actually pleased to hear a decent voice on the other end and therefore are victim to giving their personal data more freely to these Debt Collectors.

September 27th, 2012 MATT TEXAS 1962 TX

Annoyed me at 5:58pm on 9/19/12.

August 30th, 2012 john IL

these aholes call my house three times a day and after 10:00pm

January 31st, 2012 cat MO

Called our land line. Telephone survey from Central Research, supposedly regarding (our) access to internet. Caller was rude, abrupt and humorless. Didn't try to sell anything, though. MANY questions; a number of them irrelevant to internet access or to identifying our demographic. It was stupid of me to agree to answer questions; will never do phone survey again!

July 21st, 2011 shonc TX

i have recieved 20 calls in 2 hours from this number they will not talk when i answered so i no longer answer but it needs to STOP

November 4th, 2010 Pat FL

They call at least 5 times a day. No one ever answers and when I try to call back it doesn't ring. The last call was at 9:15 P.M. I want to know how to stop the calling.

November 4th, 2010 clilly FL

I received several calls this evening over a period of 30 minutes. I did not call back because it was obviously not a number I am familiar with. Sounds like a marketing scam.


November 3rd, 2010 nonB CA

I got about 3 calls from this number and when I answered they hung up. Then I tried calling back and the phone didnt ring, it just went strait to being busy. What number is it? telemarketing? what .?

September 4th, 2010 geo CA

calls and hangs up. keeps calling daily

August 26th, 2010 Smith NY

they stayed long enough on the phone for me to say my name and they hung up 8/26/10

November 23rd, 2008 Mike Bloom NY

Central Marketing is a slave driven company, run by a mindless mad ego maniac and her brigade of pundits and kiss asses never ceasing to annoy each and every caller, i hope there company folds, its a shame how they treat the public and the people who work there are morons.

October 2nd, 2008 FL

I've developed a cure for all the crank calls we get. Whwn I get the same number with unknown caller ID info more than 3 times and they don't leave a message, I answer and have a whistle ready - that stops the calls for several months at a time!!!!!!!

October 1st, 2008 S MD

1 call today at 5:25pm US EDT. Because of my work, I can tell this is an automated dialer. It appears that the caller is doing what is called "war dialing": A massive outbound call campaign loaded with a database of telephone numbers. Federal law regulates how "war dialers" can be used. Whoever is doing this is in clear violation of federal law.

October 1st, 2008 AL TX

Multiple calls on 10/1/08 with no one there from 646-453-1349.
The previous day it was multiple calls from 212-529-5461 with no
one there either.
Got another one just now that said "Out of Area" with no number. No one there.
I did call the 212-260-0070 and ask them to remove my number. (Central Research direct number)
Summarize: Understand these are political polling numbers that apparently are dialing numbers
arbitrarily; consider this; Political Polling has always been inaccurate and its a situation where
the feet are propped up and they are filling in repetitious answers for the political candidate
of their choice who you don't agree with. Therefore the Central Research Results carry no weight
at all because they are meaningless. (Like so many others) Probably one of the best things to do
is report them to your local congressman and let them know they don't speak for ANYBODY!

January 29th, 2008 Victor NY

Everyone take a deep breath. I've worked at Central Reseacrh for 5 years now. I'm an elderly gentleman who's supplimenting his SSI.We're NOT calling from Mexico. We call right from NYC. We NEVER call after 11 PM NYC EST. The computers are OLD. We've no control over the surveys at all. We've no idea what the survey is until it's on-screen. We never "push" a survey. We always introduce ourselves. We never scream, curse/yell over the phone. If you don't pick up, we hang up/move to the next call, that's why you might think we're hanging up on you.DNC calls are MANUALLY keyed in after 11PM, NYC EST. That means the managers stay & key in the DNC calls by hand. Sometimes it takes a while before the computer catches up. I't like trying to drive a car with a flat tire. We never call on holidays because our office's closed. The office's in lower Manhattan, not in Mexico, or prison. It's a big election year this year, so please be aware-the surveys're political in nature. The office's filled with people like you, trying to make an honest day's pay. We've a bankroll, & taxes are taken out. We're not prisoners. Our only crime's that we might be poor, elderly or a student with no choice at the moment in the type of job we do. Canvassing out on the street's COMMISSION. Central research's straight salary. Up to 9 dollars an hour depending on the survey. Please have a bit of mercy on us. What if it's your mother, father, sister or brother; niece, nephew, uncle, or aunt working here? What if it's your daughter, son; husband or wife? Would you try to get them fired so heartlessly?

January 27th, 2008 Abuse TX

Is This Happening To You?

On behalf of those who have previously retained us, the law firm of Fineberg Gresham is investigating complaints from consumers being harassed with calls and text messages to their cell phones. If you have received calls or text messages to your cell phone by telemarketers or others who did not have your express permission to contact your cell phone or wish to report any complaints regarding this practice, (this will send an email to our office). We are gathering factual information to determine the nature, extent and scope of the problem for those who have retained our law firm. All messages will be held confidential.

What Can You Do to Assist in Our Investigation?

If you have been the victim of this telemarketing abuse, preserve all facts and evidence of the unwanted calls or texts. Save the message. Most voicemail services only store messages for a few days or weeks. As a result, record the message in another place so that you have it. Save your phone bills which show when the call or text was received. Keep all evidence of the harassing calls or text messages.

January 27th, 2008 Abuse TX

Problem: Telemarketing Abuse

Consumers pay for calls and text messages received on their cell phones. More than ever, consumers are being harassed on their cell phones by telemarketers and businesses trying to sell goods or services. Unfortunately, these calls and text messages result in charges or a reduction in the consumers

January 26th, 2008 phil TX

I reported them to I hope the FTC puts them out of business. I don't care what excuse their employees use. It is never ok to use the phone that I pay for to harass me. It is not your phone, it is not your time, and you have no right to invade my home. Leave me alone.

January 26th, 2008 k- TX

this call is more than likely the *prisoners'* phone scam. prisoners try to make money off of this scam while doing time. somehow i'm on their call list. i was told by my phone service provider to not answer that call or call any of the numbers *they* will request unless you want a really messed up phone bill. *they* get paid for the call when you call the number that they request. it's mostly "i'm from mexico and i'm in jail would you please call my mother/wife" sad sob story, then you get billed some obnoxious amount per minute, *they* get some of the profit.

January 6th, 2008 DMK1956

Looking at messages left by other users here, I also called the 212 260 0070 and asked to be removed. They promised I would be. Then I asked who this company was, they said Central Market Research. I told them I was on a national no-call list, but they said that law does not apply to Market Research companies.
Did anyone else know this? Isn't that sobering? Sounds like we need to get our lawmakers to close up a big hole in the no-call privacy laws.

January 5th, 2008 hollie PA

the number called my house and hung up when i anwered so i googled the number and found this site so i called the 212 260 0070 number and told her i wanted removed from the list she said she would...this is the first time they called me...

December 20th, 2007 Dianne

After reading some of the comments I called 212-260-0070 and talked to a guy named Anthony. Told him I was fed up with their calls, when I answered the phone no one was there and when I called back always got a busy. I also told him about all the complaints on-line and he promised my number would be removed within 30 minutes of my call. Will wait and see.

December 17th, 2007 Mona NY

I called 212-260-0070. Guy said it would be taken off within half an hour.

December 14th, 2007 Sig

Stop calling it's really annoying, I am on the no call list, than why do I get bothered about 5-7 times within 2 hours. Bastards. Have the decency to say your name and what you want or just do not call at all. REMOVE ME FROM YOUR LIST OR I GET AFTER YOU

December 13th, 2007 Grumpy

Nobody likes the late night phone calls! In fact nobody likes to be called by Researchers. Give out your home numbers Mr/Ms. Central Research Marketing what ever, so somebody can market you at 6:00am while you're still sleeping! If it's 11:00pm in New York . . . That means it's 11:00pm for the WHOLE East Coast not just your little street.

December 12th, 2007 Jo TX

It's called Central Research Services
30 Irving Pl #7
NY, NY 10003.
I called 212-260-0070 and spoke with "Anthony". thanks to Steve who suggested this. They say because they are a market research comapny the do not call does not apply to them. Perhaps if they have to pay someone just to receive complaints they'll so something about their inefficiency. So please complain to them.

December 12th, 2007 Texas TX

Amazing! I was reading through all of the comments on the (646)#, received one this evening @ 5:40pm, and right in the middle I received a call from the (212) # (6:40pm)!! They won't leave a message and I refuse to answer, so we will see how many times they call and how late they come in. Thanks to everyone and their "tidbits" on this company/#. Will probably go ahead and call the # given by Steve to have my # removed from their list.

November 21st, 2007 Brooke

The questions are not loaded, misleading or anything like that. It's not a BS excuse. The time zone in NY is Eastern Standard time. 5 PM when we start calling. No later, no earlier. Most of those door to door polls are comission. Comission is not an option for most of us. We need a straight salary. The questions are preloaded on to the computer. We have NO control over the survey, or the phones; or the autodialer.
For some of us, this is the only job available right now. Some of us are retired, working during the day or going to school. Some of us are on a pension, or SSI.
All we're doing is asking questions on the computer screen.
We don't scream over the phone. We never call on holidays, we always introduce ourselves. If we don't follow the rules of our work, we get fired or sent home early.

November 19th, 2007 Unknown

Called @ 6:08pm est, hung up after 2nd Hello.

November 16th, 2007 Anonymous

Let me ask the people defending Central Marketing. Do you feel good about what you do? Do you feel good about asking obviously loaded and misleading questions that are obviously biased towards a particular political candidate? Do you feel good about being a public nuisance towards the general population by calling at completely inconvenient hours? Guess what. If there was any amount of accountability on the part of this company, TPTB would actually educate themselves on the concept of time zones rather than making these BS excuses about being in the Eastern Time Zone. Think about the shoe being on the other foot here. I don't care how nice you are. If you call me at 11 at night, I will get angry and you will feel every trace of my wrath. I have no problem taking surveys, but at the very least, I'm called at a reasonable hour when I take them. In essence, you guys are being exploited and your pride in this company is pretty disturbing. I must echo the sentiments of the other disgruntled people on this board by telling you that you should find a better job and apply yourselves. If you live in the NYC area, try canvassing on the street or door-to-door for a worthy cause instead of going to work every day being a mindless zombie who thinks there's some kind of honor in being cursed out at least three times a week. At least you may make a good commission promoting something like child sponsorship or protecting the environment rather than being cursed out on a regular basis and doing so for only $7.50 an hour.

November 15th, 2007 annonomys

At least we are not sucking off the government! and we are working...! trying to put food in our kids mouthes, a roof over thier head, clothes on thier back, shoes on thier feet. How would you feel ? If everyday you went to work you got yelled and cursed at? Let me just add...if you took the time to talk to a nice person for a few minutes you would only get one call!

November 11th, 2007 me

Yet another annoying annonymous hangup who is it and why are they bothering me.

November 11th, 2007 Nathan OH

Number has called 3 times today...Called 212-260-0070 and they answered as "Central Marketing"..I gave them my phone munber and they said they would take me off the call list right away and then hung up on me before ihad the chance to say anything else! We'll see if it works!

November 11th, 2007 David CO

Make 310 reports, They call an no one is there ever.

November 7th, 2007 Pat FL

Well I called 212-260-0070 We'll see if the calls stop.

November 6th, 2007 Jeff TX

Calls started coming in two days ago, the first time my daughter answered they asked for my wife or I, she told them we weren't there, they've called back between 5 - 10 times aday since. They will not leave a message.

November 4th, 2007 Eileen PA


weird b/c I'm used to seeing Unknown Name

called on 11/3/07

November 4th, 2007 John NY

This is a real job.Some of us are already working another job during the day, are going to school; or a retired. This is a legitimate company with a legitimate payroll, and legitimate paychecks. Our computers are old. The auto dialer is old. The calls sometimes have to be manually keyed in as "DNC". The DNC DID expire in August. It shows up as "unknown" because our system is a little ANTIQUATED.
We're TRYING TO MAKE A LIVING. What gives you the right to take our job away?
We NEVER hang up, scream or "push" a survey. If we do that, we get FIRED! Same as you! We are human beings trying to make a living, same as you!!!

November 1st, 2007 Stan CA

Another "Research" Company. Told them I was going to report the to the FCC as a harrassing phone caller. They hung up. On previous numbers it does stop them from calling again.

October 29th, 2007 Unknown NJ

I just received a phone call from this number. I have read all the responses. What I have to say to those who "work" for Central researches. I have no sympathy for you. If you are on the "up and up" and trying to make a living, then why do you choose to have your company marked, "unknown" on a caller id? If someone wants to participate in a survey, they will pick up the phone...get a real job!

October 27th, 2007 Matt NJ

I vented about the corresponding 212-529-5461 number on that line an hour ago. Since then I have received three more calls. I have read the pleas from the employees of Central Research and, while I don't wish to see anyone lose their jobs, I am tired of hearing the same excuses of old computers and the fact that the managers have to load the in the numbers of the people inconvenienced by their business after hours.


I recognize the value of polls and public opinion studies, but 3, 4 5 or more hang ups a day does nothing to further civilization as we know it.

October 26th, 2007 ED FL

Got 3 calls from this number today we called the main number and had us removed.

October 25th, 2007 Pissed off NJ NJ

My wife and I just had a baby and have had at least 15 calls from this so called company. All with a hang-ups & all hours of the night.

To the people defending Central Marketing: If you can not see what you are doing is completely wrong, then you are idiots. And the "just trying to make a living" line is complete BS. Get a real job like the rest of the people in this country. Daneilla & Julia please post your phone numbers so we can call you and hang up all day & night.

October 25th, 2007 Susan

I got 8 calls tonight, the last at 9:40. No one was on the line when I answered. I called the number below and they said they have removed my name from the list. I told them I am on the do not call and will report them if I get another call. Call the 212-260-0070 and tell them to STOP! And thank you Steve!

October 24th, 2007 pauline

This number keeps calling us. They have called from very early in the morning up until late at night. As early as 6:30 am and as late as 10:45 pm. The caller will not speak and stays on the line.

We called the 212-260-0070. Spoke to a woman. She asked us for our number and said she'd remove us from the list right away.

October 21st, 2007 Rina NY

I just got a call from this number, same thing unknown. I'm glad I found this site on google!

October 19th, 2007 Ron IL

3 calls
answered the first two calls no one there and the 3rd did not leave a message.
It may be related to 4:52PM call from 212-529-5461 central research.

October 18th, 2007 Ed

Got 10 calls tonight from the 646 #. If it persists I'll call the 212 # and report it.

October 18th, 2007 Lizzard

Got 15+ calls from them, no one on the line, call back is busy or N/A, call the 212-260-0070 number and tell them to take you off the list...DONE!

October 18th, 2007 Sam

Let your voices be heard! File an FCC complaint about this number!

I recommend anyone getting this call, to file a complaint. I'm on the "Do not Call" list, and this is unacceptable.

For those working for this company, please provide your phone number so we can call you all day and night!

October 14th, 2007 Miltos PA

Got called by this number literally 6 times in one hour. I called the 212 number listed on this forum and was taken right off, with an apology.

October 11th, 2007 Kurt NY

I just received a call by way of an auto dialer from 646 453 1349 followed less than 10 minutes later by a guy who identified himself as being with a Sheriffs Association "How are you tonight?" I asked him how he got through my restricted caller service. (That's the one where you have to supply our caller ID info or my phone won't even ring.) He responded with, "I'm sorry!?" I replied with a loud "NO!" and hung up.

October 10th, 2007 Bonnie

I get calls from this number 646-453-1349 at least twice a day. I have no idea who it is.

October 1st, 2007 J.West

Just got another call from this number and was hung up on when I picked up the receiver. I guess it was pay back for asking them to put me on the do not call list, being ignored by their sales agent and finally hanging up on them. This organization should not be allowed access to phones.

September 28th, 2007 rocco G NY

got a call from this number. I didn't pick up. the voicemail message sounded like background sounds and muffled talking, then hangup.

September 27th, 2007 G.E.

Called 6 times in about 1 1/2 hours. No one spoke and soon hung up. Last time caller ID read out this phone number. All other times read out unknown name, unknown number Have reported it to our phone company as a nuisance call for whatever good that will do.

September 27th, 2007 Mike MA

Called at 9:45PM, and hung up. Note to Julia - nobody cares about you making a living - stop calling us!

September 27th, 2007 stitches NJ

i got 4 call 10 min apart called back and got buzy signal between 21:00 and 21:40

September 24th, 2007 Julia NY

I also work for Central research. I must stress:
We are NOT agressive.
This is NOT illegal.
We NEVER ask for money.
Or for your name.
We ALWAYS introduce ourselves.
It's is straight salary.
We are located in NYC, for 10 years now.
The hours are 5 PM NYC time to 11 PM NYC time.
There is a 1 hour to 3 hour TIME DIFFERENCE where we are calling to.
It may be 11 PM in NYC, but it's ONLY 8 PM in California.
We are trying to make a living.
Just like YOU.

September 22nd, 2007 P TX

Received a call; "UNKNOWN"; rang for about 4 rings. I did not pick it up.

September 21st, 2007 Andrew IL

I have been getting several calls within several hours. They call every 20 minutes. This is weird.

September 20th, 2007 dodubln

Received call at 9:40 PM yesterday from 212-529-5461 and tonight at 9:48 from 646-453-1349 listed as Unknown on Caller ID and then at 9:49 listed as Out of Area on Caller ID. I did not answer these calls nor was a message left by them.

I have read the majority of these posts and know who is calling and what it is all about. I am in the Central Time Zone & I understand the calls are generated by a NYC autodialer. After further reading Daneilla's email of 8-22-2007, I feel comfortable answering my telephone now or calling Central Research & asking to be removed from their records.

September 20th, 2007 chris GA

This number has called me twice today.. When I call it back, it says the number is no longer in service, or just gives a busy signal... Who are these perverts that are calling at 9:30 pm ??

September 18th, 2007 Lori

I recieved several hang up calls from the 646 #. I sat here and read all of the complaints. Then someone gave a number to call to have your name taken off their list, I called the number, a man answered the phone, Central Research. I asked him to please take my number off their list, He said he would, He was very nice and said he was sorry, my # would be removed

September 16th, 2007 LC CA

Received a couple of calls yesterday and one so far today.

September 13th, 2007 anita TX

don't want junk calls from this number usually they don't talk or it's from a foreign country.

September 12th, 2007 amanda ME

they called and asked me who i was voting for in a local election. didn't identify themselves. very aggressive.

September 6th, 2007 Bob

They keep calling and I call back but I get a busy signal or it just keeps ringing
Im going to try to block their number

September 6th, 2007 karen IL

I have received a number of calls from this number at all hours of the night. The number is shown and the id indicates unknown.

September 6th, 2007 Jack

I just want to apologize if you were one of the people that I may have called between the hours of 5-11PM EST. I worked for Central Marketing for a month and felt absolutely dirty making those calls, or rather the ones that the computer dialing system picks anyway. I wish you all good luck in beating these guys.

August 28th, 2007 Gayle

08-27-2007 Rec'd call at 9:30pm. There were 2 previous calls showing on my caller ID during the day. Rude person...Informed her we are on the 'no call' list she stated doesn't matter, she wasnt seling anything. Informed her it was after 9pm CST and she told me she worked until 11pm EST and would be making calls until then. Informed her to stop calling my # and she informed me she would continue. At this point she was screaming! I hung up.

August 28th, 2007 Jeff TX

I've had several calls over the past several days... all were no response or hang-ups like everyone else is reporting. Finally at 9 pm I got a real live person trying to do a survey. I angrly told her that I was sick and tired of their calls and to put me on their Do Not Call List. She said, yessir. We'll see if this ends it.

August 22nd, 2007 Daneilla NJ

I understand your frustration. I sometimes work for Central Research. Please understand that the dialer is automated, and the computers have no way of knowing if you're on the "do not call list." This is a legitimate survey comapny. They've been in NYC for almost 1o years. To try to put people out of work because of a dialer/computer glitch is a little harsh. Central Research updates its files and dialer's every chance they get. Please understand that this job is part time at night, in NYC, there may be a time zone difference of up to 3 hours. If Central Research calls you at 5 pm NYC time, please take into account what time it is in New York; not in your home town. To our company, we're calling you early in the afternoon. You don't have to answer the survey. None of our surveys are "push polls" or meant to be annoying. This is for research, and the results are forwarded to other companies, who then some times publish the findings. This might be the only job for some of our employees who might be on a tight budget, going to school, or are looking for supplemental income. If our employees worked on commission, believe me; the company would have gone out of business a long time ago. Our employees work on a straight salary only. No commission, no kick backs; no nothing.
Central Research is doing what it can to adress the multiple call problem as quickly as we can update our dialers and our computers.

August 22nd, 2007 Alicia LA

I took Steve's advice and called to get off the list...however I yelled at the guy for waking up my kids. I told him I have received 17 calls in the last 3 days he said it is computer generated phone call surveys. 17 times...hello its broken!!!!

August 22nd, 2007 Lorris LA

Have been getting calls for the last few days 3 or 4 per day, no one on line need to contact someone like FBI tracers

August 20th, 2007 Darra LA

Called twice today. Early afternoon and early evening. Rang three times, then hung up before my voicemail picked up.

August 19th, 2007 robyn duff

I received a call from this number, but when I answered no one responded. They seemed to stay on the line and listen. I left my phone off the hook for an hour and they didn't call back.

August 17th, 2007 Toby TX

"this is a public opinion poll" was all I got.

August 17th, 2007 Suzi-Q UT

Use the call rejection feature -- *60 in Utah (Qwest) it may be different in your area. Remember to turn call rejection ON after or before entering the number. I use my home phone for business and it is really annoying!

August 12th, 2007 Rich

On 08/12/2007 - gotten two calls today from this number. the phone rings twice and then hangs up. I don't answer it.

August 9th, 2007 John DE

"Hello, I'm calling to see if you'd like to take a survey on prescription drugs"

August 6th, 2007 Cristina PA

Got my first call today. As Danielle also experienced there was about a 5 second pause before the hang up. During that time there was silence on the other end of the line as I repeated Hello.

July 31st, 2007 DS

Calls all the time.

July 22nd, 2007 Tee NJ

I received 2 calls in 20 minutes today from this number -

July 21st, 2007 Vee CA

I received a call and they didn't leave a message, it just said Unknown. B*st*rds woke me from a nap. Rang the number and got disconnected service blah blah try your number again. I hate phone solicitations.

July 10th, 2007 nev MO

my mother in law keeps receiving calls from this number i tried to call it back but got a busy signal!!! but they still keep calling they never quit

July 9th, 2007 Richard

I called back, it gave me an auto responder" All circuits are busy, call call at another time".
I think that it's a call center with perhaps 1-2 deranged CSR's.
There shouldn't be alot of cause for concern but perhaps they are about to steal your identity.
There are call centers for these as well but not advertised.
I'm a littler concerned. Can anyone have a tracer put on this line.
Get back to us. Thanks a bunch,

July 9th, 2007 MKA GA

It is a spame

July 8th, 2007 Ron CA

I saw the caller ID & let it ring to the answer machine. No message.

June 24th, 2007 Adrian

Have gotten 2 calls from this number this weekend, both at same time of day (about 2:45 pm), both times the phone rang just 3 times and then quit before I or my ans machine could answer. Annoying.

June 24th, 2007 Anne VA

caller hung up when I said hello.

June 23rd, 2007 KH UT

last called 6/15/07.
at least 5 or 6 calls in the past two weeks.
I pick up, no sound. Not a hang up, just no sound, so I hang up. Maybe it's looking for a fax "handshake", I don't know, but it's very annoying.

June 15th, 2007 Jennifer KY

June 15th, 2007 Carrie

June 13th, 2007 Kara OK

Go here:

to file a complaint with the BBB against this company. It is listed as "Central Marketing Inc." Don't use the phone number search--it won't pull it up. Use the business name/city/state search.

The BBB report says no complaints have been filed in the last 36 months. Let's get someone on this!

June 10th, 2007 AS

I just spoke to someone who called from this number and asked to do a survey based on ATM Fees. I completed the survey and they said they were from Central Marketing in NY, NY. Hope I have not just somehow been scammed!!!

June 6th, 2007 Annoyed TX

Thanks to Time Warner Digital Phone, I have been receiving numerous telemarketing calls. I just got a new phone number from them, and requested that it be nonpublished, unlisted and restricted. Evidently, they don't make your number unlisted right away, even if you request it. This is what "Eric" at TW told me. After reading these other complaints here, I am thinking it is some sort of scam/deal the cable companies have with telemarketing scumbags. Maybe I ought to contact the FTC or even my local news. It is just too coincidental that people here get new numbers from their cable companies and these EXACT same marketers contact them. Something smells REAL funny here. As in rotten!

June 5th, 2007 Wendy

Constant calls and hang ups even though I am on the Do Not Call list and have filed complaints

June 4th, 2007 Jerry NC

I just called "Anthony" and he said thay he would take ir off the list and that they wouldn't call again. I told him that they were not affected by the "DNC" list.

June 4th, 2007 SHAUNA

I tried calling this number back, and just got a busy signal.

May 22nd, 2007 Anastesia

This number keeps calling my home.When i answer they always hang up. I called the number back long distance and the phone line is always busy, who is this number connected to? Is it bill collectors, or is it someone pranking? can N E one tell me?

May 17th, 2007 Bert NY

646-453-1349 just called us, think it's happened before but never took much note of number. No message left.

May 13th, 2007 Dami Ahmed NJ

I often receive consecutive calls from this number with UNKNOWN CALLER on the caller id. I called back and I got the busy signal.

May 10th, 2007 anna

These calls are coming from PAETEC COMMUNICATIONS, INC, based in NY. It's a company that routes conference calls and phone calls from college campuses, so as best as I can determine, it could be just about anyone calling you using this service. Or it could actually be the company. I would be interested to know more about how their services work because I've got a crazy ex-wife stalking me who calls up to 20 or 30 times a day from unknown numbers. Yes, the phone co. is working on this and so will the police if it doesn't stop immediately.

May 4th, 2007 Moonshiner KS

Got my first call from them tonight...answered and they mispronounced my last name....told them nobody here by that name and they said sorry and hung up. Did use my middle initial. I only use my middle init. for my credit cards. I wonder if that has anything to do with it?

May 2nd, 2007 Jan

This madness has got to stop!! All of us have posted the same complaint. How is this company able to get away with this harassment? How have they been able to set up the number so when you call it back a recording says "Not in service". This is absolutely ludicrous!

April 27th, 2007 Nick

Similar to others posting here, I received a call from this number, and the caller immediately hung up when I answered.

April 27th, 2007 BIGBALLS


April 25th, 2007 John VA

This number has called my house several times over the past few weeks, and if you answer they say nothing, and then of course they hang up..

They even call after 9 PM..
This should not be allowed!!

April 24th, 2007 Mithandir

*UPDATE 212-260-0070 This number is the correct number to get yourself removed from the calling list. Thanks Steve!

April 24th, 2007 Mithandir

Yeah these jerks are calling and hanging up on me. When I call back I get a "this number has been disconnected" recording. Appearently they have been up to this for sometime. My question is WHY?

April 21st, 2007 Carlos

I received several calls from this number and they don't leave any messages on my answering machine and the calls have increased up to 5 a day. How are these people? Tried calling back and it says the number is disconnected. Any information?

April 18th, 2007 Vegas NV

Received a call around 8 pm pacific time but didn't pick up. When I called back I got to a busy signal. Listed under as unknown.

March 28th, 2007 izzy

same as what others one is there when I answer, and then when I call back is busy...recording that says disconnected.

March 22nd, 2007 Janet

I've gotten several calls from this number. When I call it back I just got a busy signal; other time, I get a message that the number has been disconnected. Then they call right back from the same number. Creepy

March 14th, 2007 Lawon FL

I received a call from this number. I didn't recognize it, so I didn't answer. When I call it back I just get a busy signal

March 9th, 2007 Roxie--again VA

Oops, should have said phone numbers related to Central Marketing NOT Central Research.

March 9th, 2007 Roxie VA

Got calls from 646-453-1349, 212-260-0070 and 212-529-5461 (They all seem to be related to Central Research).

Just got call from this #:
Caller id says:

New York NY

Hung up as soon as I said hello.

March 6th, 2007 Lenny CA

Number looked familiar, but they hung up just before the answering machine kicked in. Then I remembered. Used to get multiple calls a night for a while from this number. Not nearly as bad as when we were getting "junk fax" calls in the middle of the night. Mad props to Steve!

March 6th, 2007 Martha GA

They asked for me and I sad -I'm not here. Then hangup

March 1st, 2007 Bill in SoCal HI

We got this one tonight. I took the advice, called the 212 number. It was answered very curtly. One ring, he answered with "Yes." I was matter of fact: "I want to be removed from your contact list." Gave him my number, he said it would be removed immediately.
DNC lists don't work anymore because no one calls with "advertising" any more. They all call with "marketing research surveys," and surveys are not restricted by the National DNC list! What a scam!

March 1st, 2007 jones NJ

keeps calling my home. cakker id says unknown. if i pick up no one answers/hangs up. extremely annoying.

February 24th, 2007 Age NJ

Received a phone call at 9:46 PM from this number and I am really upset about this. Who calls that late at night...

February 22nd, 2007 scmidty

they keep calling me. 10 calls in one night. Anyone sell a pulse shock device that I can send through the phone and zap them? hee hee.

February 22nd, 2007 john MI

I'm glad that Steve listed a number to call to be removed from the list (which I've done) though I have little hope of escaping these evil minions. They used to call every few days at the break of day and wake me up. There was never anyone on the line when I answered...

Now they're calling me on my cell, which is registered with the do not call list, after I called an asked to be removed before.

Is anyone aware of a regulatory commission of any kind which can levy fines or otherwise punish this kind of abuse?

February 21st, 2007 Hal TN

several call from 646 453 1349 on Feb 21. Similar to calls from 212 529 5461

February 20th, 2007 Juan

Come home from a hard day of work, earning a living and get a f++++ing call like this, this has to stop

February 18th, 2007 Marcia NJ

I was getting calls from this number yesterday and today - I called the 212-260-0070 as suggested in the earlier emails - they said a 646 # was not theirs but they would "try" and take me off their phone list....

February 18th, 2007 Shannon OK

After days of these people doing exactly what every has stated here, I called the number Steve gave us and the company found my number and removed it.

February 14th, 2007 isabel AZ

receive at least 6 calls a day from this # with no one on the line. called the 212 # posted and asked to be removed from the list. they were very nice and agreed to remove my # from their call list

I am really getting tired of these guys!

February 13th, 2007 Toni VA

I actually answered the call and it was an opinion survey.I hung up

February 13th, 2007 REGGIE AZ

has called seven times today

February 6th, 2007 Elaine TX

I called 212-260-0070,which is their incoming call line, and was removed from their list. The guy also told me that since they do political research and surveys and don't ask for money, the Do Not Call List does not apply to them.

February 5th, 2007 JR

January 20th, 2007 Cory RI

Contact 212 260 0070 and tell them you want to be removed from the list. Do not stop calling them until they assure you that you've been removed. (Who cares how many calls it takes in a row, haven't they harrassed us long enough?)

January 19th, 2007 Barbara VA

This number has been calling and not leaving anything. They let it ring and when answered they hang up. Have called several times. Don't get response when calling them. 1-19-07 comes up unknown

January 18th, 2007 Jeannie NY

I have received calls from this number and from 212-529-5461 and have been unable to get them when I call back. There must be something that can be done about these nuisance calls. Yes..the do not call lists DO NOT work!! Oh, on one of my caller IDs the 212 number was identified as Central Research, whatever that is..certainly nothing I want to talk to.

January 13th, 2007 amy FL

thanks for the number, 212-260-0070 - the girl was friendly and said she'd take my number right off. Also got calls from 212-529-5461which is also central research.

November 28th, 2006 Katy PA

November 27th, 2006 Sam FL

Ignored the call... should I report this elsewhere... or do I need to call them and ask them to stop calling me?

November 16th, 2006 Lori TX

I have received calls from this number. Often it will be multiple calls in one evening; however, when I pick up they hang up. My number is registered on the "do not call" list.

November 13th, 2006 Jay NY

redeived the above number and 212-529-5461 numerous times tonight. tried to call both numbers, the 212 doesn't answer and the above is 'out of service'. very annoyed.

November 13th, 2006 BT

The bastards have called about 15 times thus far this afternoon and evening. At times it's from 646-453-1349 and others it's from 212-529-5461. The first # number says unknow whle the second says Central Research. Mykids are bout to go to bed. If this nonesense continues, I'm going to take someone out.

November 8th, 2006 Bob MN

Got the same call answered, screamed hello and nobody was there. If they call again I'm going to shout at them and tell them to take me off the list.

November 8th, 2006 Thomas FL

They would hang up as soon as you answer. They have called at least 10 times over the last couple of days. When I call back, 1/2 the time I get a No Longer in Service announcement. It is busy all other times.

November 7th, 2006 g

this number has called me so far about 7 times today and it is only 2:00. they call like every 20 minutes and hang up on me. you can't call backk the number because it is either busy or you get a message saying the number is disconnected. it is very frustrating.

November 6th, 2006 M FL

Just got a call from this number which showed unknown on called ID. When we answered the phone, no one was there so we hung up. 33023

November 4th, 2006 Jessica IN

I was not sure who it was, so, I didn't answer it. Now I am really curious. I want to know!

November 3rd, 2006 Buzz

No Call List is BS. How can we stop this shit?

October 27th, 2006 head OK

do not call lists do not work. There is no enforcement just like spammers who email stock reports. They never go away

October 21st, 2006 Tony

We've only had this phone for 2 Mo.and we get all these wrong numbers but with this one no one's on the phone. Yet they call and you answer the phone and they hang up. I do wish they'd STOP!

They called, it sounded like a room full of people. Then they hung up? Very Strange.

Returned the call and it was busy. I called the 212-260-0070 number. They asked me call back in two days to get removed from the list. I asked why so long, they stated that they just answer the phone and somebody that can remove my number would be in on Thursday.

It's called Central Research Services
30 Irving Pl #7
NY, NY 10003.
I called 212-260-0070 and spoke with "Anthony". He said he'd take my number off the list. He also mentioned "Linda" is the General Manager. Everyone, please call and complain!!!

Add me to the list. :( Just got my 4th call today (10-16-06) within last 2 hours and each time I answer they wait around 5 seconds before hanging up. Creepy people or some messed up auto caller, either way very annoying.

i have gotten several calls from this number. The ID just says New York NY. When I call it back I get a message that the number has been disconnected. Then they call right back from the same number. Creepy
