July 15th, 2015 Kim CA

Keep calling my cell. Which is weird since NO ONE has the number. I DO NOT give it out nor do I use it except for work and my mom. So how the heck did they get it????? I don't pick up because I have never since the number before.

January 31st, 2014 Yasobara WA

This number calls me everyday. I don't want to answer the survey. I went to Universal survey web site and asked to remove my number, but they called me today twice. I am going to block the number.

January 28th, 2014 dg8515 CA

After not picking up 2 to 3 calls a day from this number (caller ID Universal Survey) I picked up and requested my number be removed. The caller spoke over me very loudly to insure it was not a sales call! I responded I understand but want my number removed from your list. I advised I am ill and the numerous calls are interrupting my rest and affecting my illness. Again she very loudly stated it is not a sales call and began with the question, how many adults over 49 in your household. I stated do not want to participate and I have this number will report the harrasment.

October 28th, 2013 M NY

These people call at random hours. If u call the number back- there is a voice message saying it is a survey company.
Go to their website and click the contact us section.
suggest your phone number be removed off their list- I just did it for the first time- so I'm not sure it works. Hopefully it does.

October 9th, 2013 Stacy MI

2nd call in 2 days on my cell, no message left, I called the number got a recording that its Universal Survey and they are not telemarketers just want to ask survey questions and that was the end of the message.

September 30th, 2013 jcross1231 KS

Didn't leave a message.

September 20th, 2013 Craig ME

They've called my home twice today. The first time my voice mail picked up. All I heard was voices in the background. No message left. The second call was at 9:14PM. This time I did pick up the phone. I said hello, heard some background noise of people in their call center talking and the line disconnected. I have no intention of doing any surveys but had a little time to play some mind games with these people and maybe spoil their day.

September 7th, 2013 Mike CA

Calling me from this number and also a 212 number, blocking both thanks to my Android phone.

September 7th, 2013 Izzy CA

I googled the number and came up with the information. I clicked on contact us to leave a harassment email. Then I saw please add my number to the do not call list. I hope it works.

They call and call and call and if you ask them to stop, they start arguing with you, explaining how important your opinion is. This time they wanted to speak to the youngest female in the house. I'm blocking their number from now on because I'm tired of them calling 2-3 times a day.

June 1st, 2013 FL WA

Dumb guy who knew my name, says he's calling for Universal Surveys wanting my opinions of things in my area. Told him to take me off the list. Bleh

They won't stop calling so I did some stalking and found Keith Strassberg's (Universal Survey's CEO) new home phone number as they keep changing it.

He has company right now so feel free to annoy him as much as he has annoyed you!

February 21st, 2013 lsm CA

Called several times today. Picked up. Said it was a survey. Told them to stop calling and take my name off the call list. As I was putting down the phone the woman said that they weren't trying to sell anything. Who cares? Take me off the list!!!

January 25th, 2013 Me2 IL

Universal Survey has called me several times too. I've never picked up their call and they've never left a message. Time to put them on my block list.

Tried to argue with me when I asked to stop calling me even when I said I was on Do Not Call list.

August 29th, 2012 GLTirebiter CA

Got a call from them tonight -- courteous woman with a very strong Jamaican accent. Claimed to be conducting a mail-in survey that I would receive $5. I bet. I gave my address anyhow, we'll see if anything shows up. I already get tons of advertising junk anyhow. She did ask if there were teenagers in our home, I said there are not, then went into something about the number of console and handheld video game systems in our home as if teenagers are the only ones who play with those. Annoying but not as awful as some I've had. Next time I'll cue up "Three Little Birds" and play it into the receiver.

June 16th, 2012 chris CA

Didn't answer the call. No message was left.

June 13th, 2012 ALBERTO GALINDO CA

I got this helpful way to respond to such callers from Reader's Digest and it works.

When unknown, wireless caller, unavailable etc. calls are received, do this:

1. press # once, then immediately press # again and HOLD. The caller will receive a loud ringing in their ear and if it's a robo call, the connnection will be broken at once. After a few times, the caller (s) will give up and you get the satisfaction of giving a human caller an earful that hurts!!!!!!!

April 26th, 2012 Susan CA

December 15th, 2011 G.Kahn CA

This call was in Chinese. When I asked him to speak English he apologized and hung up before I could ask him to stop calling. There have been 4 calls so far. I called back the number and a machine identified the company as Universal Survey Center. Googling that I got the number 212 391 5243 and got the operator who transferred me to someone who could stop the calls at x136. I left a message to please stop calling. We will see.

told caller I was on "No Call List" he said that list was ONLY for selling and he was taking a survey, I disconnected call

May 24th, 2011 Steve MI

If the posts advise that they didn't answer, the dialer is going faster than the call center agents. While its on the first or second ring, that unknowing attendent has been waiting to make his pitch, it feels like a real long time, and just before you pick it up, he disconnects; thus the giant pause. joy.

April 12th, 2011 nblisa WA

They did not leave a message.

March 31st, 2011 Pete TX

Andrea Patrick called us, asking for the owner. She got all in a tizzy when I asked her name and return phone number, but she said it was 1-888-391-9991.

I mentioned the do-not-call-list, and she was quick to point out that they are exempt. She said the biz name was GFK Research.

I asked for a supervisor, which upset her, but she complied, and 2 minutes later I talked to Nina Goodman. She said she was a supervisor and asked "what my problem was".

I asked her to remove us from their calling list, which she replied she would do.

December 5th, 2010 Ted NY

Everyone please calm down. These people are just doing their jobs. If they are doing policital surveys, they are excempt from DNC rules.

However, they have an easy way to unsubcribe by going to their web site - someone posted it below.

Now if they continue to call after a couple of days, that is different. Then report them. But relax, it's just a phone call and not someone knocking on your door.

November 26th, 2010 Resident47

That's a cheap excuse. Computers can only take orders from their human masters.

November 26th, 2010 Sandy

After constant calls I answered. Told them I was on Do Not Call list and was basically informed the computer did it. I guess that is the way they get around it. Pretty sneaky. I told them I was not interested.

August 24th, 2010 FrankLeeDoobyus MD

I hate to belabor the obvious, but ...

Universal Survey is a fairly well documented (see 28 pages of complaints above) bunch of a**holes. So, what rational being would go to their website and give them your phone number? Ostensibly to have it removed from their calling list? Which they never do?

• Lodge formal complaints with the FCC;
• BLOCK their phone number (if your phone system allows you to do so)
• Use one of the old phone company messages (above), "Be-e-e-ep! We're sorry. Your call cannot be completed as dialed, because you're a scumbag jerk-off!" ... or even something less subtle.

August 22nd, 2010 karen in tx TX

why doesn't the law protect us from survey companies as well as telemarketers!?! BLOCKED!

August 14th, 2010 Stephen AB Canada

They have called at least a half a dozen times and I havent answered once since its not an area code I recognized. Yet they still persist in calling again and again... Not the same city or even the same country. I thought Global harassment from people like this was supposed to stop..

March 19th, 2010 Alexis CA

Got a call from this number. The person on the other line asked to speak to me (used my first and last name). I said, "speaking." He said, "I am calling from EMC Research and we are conducting a survey..." I asked the name of the company again and looked it up online while I was on the phone. He said, "Can I confirm that I'm speaking to Alexis W." and I then asked where EMC Research was located and he said he couldn't disclose that information. He then asked if I was registered to vote. The entire this short conversation was going on I could hear him typing in the background. I hung up the phone. Wondering what information they were trying to get and what they wanted to use it for.

March 11th, 2010 Mark Harrold OK

March 2nd, 2010 Dan AZ

They called and started a survey, first question was if anyone in the household works for a telecommunications company. I actually do, but I told them I don't want to answer that question and she said Thankyou and hung up. Phishing for info, that's what it is. Not really a true survey, it's just marketing feelers.

September 14th, 2009 Jaydub CA

They call about 5-10 times a day for the last week. I just finally picked up the phone and told them to take me off their call list and stop calling as they call every day. The guy has the audacity to argue back that it's impossible for them to call that much every day. However, since I have a caller ID log, I have proof that they call that often.

Tbey'd better take me off their call list, otherwise I will contact the BBB.

I got a call from them a few days ago.
These "surveys" are really phising for information on you to add to commercial databases. This is just as intrusive as government spying on citizens. They never really want your opinion. If they ask for it, it's just to avoid raising suspicion.

Unfortunately, this is not illegal. They are one of the many types of calls exempted from the DNC list. If you don't like it, call your Congressman. Might help to look on FEC web site to see how much he received from telemarketers and consumer database companies beforehand. In the EU, this is illegal.

These folks have called several times, at least once after 9 p.m. When I answer the phone, they do not say anything, just the sound of activity like a call center in the background. Everyone that is on the do not call list, please report them. It is a shame that our government fails to enforce its laws. Maybe if they get enough complaints.......... Well, it's a new year.

They've called me about 6 times in the past week or so. Always shows
the "Universal Survey" on the I.D. So I usually pick it up & hang up-
not interested in unsolicited surveys, esp. now with the election over!
When they called yesterday, I was prepared & simply blew a whistle
into the phone when I picked it up!

As soon as I knew someone was on the line, I told them to put me on their do not call list. The guy replied he would need info to do that, and I told him I was already on the Do Not Call list. He said they were taking a survey, I said I wasn't interested and hung up. He was not rude, and had a foreign accent. I have read that if their calls are recorded, they need my voice telling them to put me on their do not call list, so maybe this did it. If my answering machine gets it, it sometimes records these calls and then I still have to delete from my phone. Aggravating.

September 17th, 2008 Barb AL

Told me they were conducting a survey. Wanted to know if I made the financial decisions in my home. I told them it was none of their business and I didn't wish to participate, hung up. Said his name was Adam.

August 3rd, 2008 Carol

Survey call. Gave his name as Dean Luria and the phone number as 212-391-5143. Called no answer.

August 1st, 2008 Bob PA

Called @ 9:24pm on 7/31, wanting to take a survey about wireless service, I presume - thank GOD I don't have a cell phone, and God willing, NEVER will. He thanked me, said, "Have a nice day," and we parted ways.

July 31st, 2008 STACEY CA

Some kind of survey and said "I'll see what I can do" when I requested to be removed from their list.

July 8th, 2008 Vito MA

646) 467-6665 called on 7/8/08 @ approx. 9.45 am et to eastern Mass. ID unavailable.

July 5th, 2008 Tom NC

"unknown" displayed on caller-id... heard background noise similar to that of a call-center? no msg left.

June 27th, 2008 Rex CA

Has called several times a day for last 6 days

June 25th, 2008 Ann VA

I took the advice of one of the folks below and emailed the VP of this so-called marketing company saying:

"Please take 703 830-1XXX off of your call list. There are enough complaints about your company on record to start a lawsuit regarding harassment. Out of curiosity how exactly do you handle ridiculous, continual calls at your home phone number? I'd be curious to know what an executive VP of a "surveying/marketing" company does to protect himself and his family members from these types of intrusive calls."

Just for kicks I am also going to forward all email spam I receive at home and at work to this Keith Strassberg so he has a mountain of extra headaches to deal with...I wonder if I can forward other telemarketers/survey takers to the number listed for this company. It would be great for them to receive harassing calls from other similar companies

June 22nd, 2008 El CA

Received calls: Mon 6/16/08 7:11 PM and Wed 6/18/08 at 4:14 PM, 5:04 PM, 5:54 PM. My number is on the DONOTCALL list, for whatever that's worth.

June 21st, 2008 brad GA

Just found this site. It's great and thanks. Keep getting this call from 646-467-6665 and no one will say anything but they must like the sound of my voice I thought because they hold the phone then hang up. The calls repeat within minutes. Other sites reported it was a cell phone but then I found this one. I feel better now I thought I was going to have to get paranoid. Thanks guys for the info!

June 20th, 2008 aceman NY

I have been getting A lot of calls from these people now I think I know how to get them not to call when I see this number come up I have A aircompressor and will turn it on put the phone near it when I hear a person its not real loud but they will get the message try it I am

June 20th, 2008 Tommie TX

Called this morning and asked if a male was available. I just called the number and a lady answered and gave the company name but I didn't understand it. She did say they were taking surveys and were not a telemarketing company.

June 17th, 2008 B

Calling twice a day. Never leave message.

June 17th, 2008 StopTheHarass TX

As of 6-16-08, this company is Universal Survey Center, website: If you have been called, answered & asked to be removed from their call list but still receiving calls, or just hung up on upon answering, send a "Cease And Desist" email including your telephone number to be removed from their call list, to any one or ALL of the following executive officers: Keith Strassberg, Executive Vice President, or Leslie Dillon, Executive Vice President, or Mike Lefkowitz, Strategy, Planning and Business Development, Be SURE to keep a COPY of the email you send. If this does not STOP the calls, please post again. A class action lawsuit may be in order.

June 17th, 2008 Bob LA

What p's me they call at 9:30 at night. Will not say anything.

June 16th, 2008 BH VA

They are calling almost every day. Left no message. Usually see it on Caller ID. Tired of seeing number.

June 14th, 2008 PissedInOrlando FL

Was receiving this two times a day for the past 4 days. Finally answered. It was a survey. I asked if he realized he was calling me on a cell phone and he said, "yes." I asked to be removed from their list. Let's see how long that lasts.

June 13th, 2008 Tammy

called at 9:27p.m. CST - said they were a very respectible company. I hung up, anyone calling after 9 pm is not respectible unless they know me and know I want to speak to them (I thought there was a law against calling after 9 for businesses)

June 13th, 2008 D. Hill CA

Got a call to me in Southern California from a "National Marketing Research Company" at (646) 466-6665 even though I am on the National Do Not Call List.

June 12th, 2008 F FL

called me at 8 PM. When I answered - nothing. Rings up on caller ID as "unavailable."

June 11th, 2008 Tony

Received numerous calls from this number...luckily don't use home phone...just constantly appears like a psycho caller.

June 10th, 2008 dove CT

caller ID unavailable........... continuous calls without the message

June 3rd, 2008 anon

these idiots call twice today - so far

May 24th, 2008 Linda Moore TX

I've received 3 calls from this a**hole since noon (and reported all 3 to the Do Not Call registry). The last time, I answered and they hung up. The next time I answer, I'll say something other than "hello."

May 24th, 2008 Linda Moore TX

This jerk has called me twice in the past hour. I guess I have to answer on the second ring to actually talk to a person.

If I do manage to pick up the phone, I guarantee you they'll regret it!!

May 24th, 2008 Linda Moore TX

This is the third call I've had in just a few weeks. And it's the third one I'm going to report because I'm on the Do Not Call List.

May 23rd, 2008 Ed CA

Leaves no message

May 22nd, 2008 Lori MN

She called at 9:45 and I asked if there was any emergency and she said no and I told her it was late and asked if there was a problem again and she said I had the problem and hung up on me.

May 19th, 2008 Linda Moore MI

Was a woman from a "national market research firm." I told her I didn't participate in surveys and hung up.

May 17th, 2008 Linda Moore MI

My answering machine picked it up; they left no message.

May 16th, 2008 J AZ

Received this call immediately after I got a call from Jeni Huppenthal... had a very annoying bullshit message claiming what John Huppenthal did. Upon calling back the phone number forwarded me to another number then this number called me immediately afterwards...

So lesson learned... even if you stay on the line to say, "remove me from your list" and or call back to have it done they will just spam you with another call.


May 15th, 2008 DM CA

I intend on reporting this company, if indeed it is a real company. They called once on 5/13/08 and hung up when we asked to be removed from their list. Then we got a very vile prank call from them THREE TIMES in the middle of the night. Another call the next evening, but very polite when I again asked to be removed. I expect I'll probably receive another call from them tonight.

If that happens, I'm going to make it a personal goal to take them down!! What losers!

May 13th, 2008 jan

a young latino sounding girl started reading from a script saying it was a survey and I stopped her instantly telling her that I was on several do not call lists and that what she was doing was illegal and to please remove my number from her list and then she proceeded to quote the law to me and said "Since I am not selling anything, the do not call law does not apply, that's only when someone tried to sell something to you ....." and she had an attitude and I interupted her again and told her "Don't quote the law to me, what you are doing is illegal and you are disturbing me so you listen to what I tell you!" and then she hung up on me, I have noticed this number on my caller I.D. box for several days now, we must all go to that report a call website, I have to find it, people like this need to be stopped, who knows who they are and why they disturb us, when I try to call the number back, I get a tape telling me to check the number and try again, it must be a scam of some kind, when I don't want to be disturbed by anyone selling or not, that is why I get on the do not call lists, we have to stop them, this is all George Bush's fault as usual!
Vote Hilary and fix up the country like only a woman can!

May 12th, 2008 Dayne Sullivan

This company called our company and when asked to be removed the caller made a rude noise and hung up.
How do you expect a company that is suppose to be professional represents others.
Would love to talk their CEO.

May 12th, 2008 GD CT

Showed up on my caller ID, but I wasn't home. It shows up as unavailable.

May 10th, 2008 Ryan AZ

This was the 3rd time in 2 days that this number called me. I answered the phone each of the three times, and only on the 3rd time did someone on the other line respond to my saying, "hello." The caller was speaking in a low tone of voice, so was not entirely clear to hear, although the line connection appeared to be not at fault. He began by explaining that he was not selling something and was going to ask me some questions for a survey. I said, "That's fine, but I will need for you to speak up because I cannot hear you very well." Very rudely the caller said "NO" and then hung up on ME!

May 6th, 2008 Amy CT

This is Universal Survey calling. What you have to do is when someone comes on the line, automatically ask to speak with their supervisor and or manager. Since it is a call center they MUST put a manager or supervisor on the phone. When they come on the phone tell them that their company has called your house multiple times in one day and you would like to be placed on their "DO NOT CALL" list. I spoke with an Anthony who was a supervisor.

May 5th, 2008 Burke VA

May 1st, 2008 irritated MI

They call everyday around the same time, I never answer the numbers without names included but I got so irritaed from these persistant calls I wrote the number down and diled them back the prerecored message says they are an independant research company. I don't know if they are also a great number of unavailable & Unknown Number number calls I've been getting as well.I'm on the "Do Not Call" list and they should respect that. Does anyone know how to block a phone number?

April 28th, 2008 Susan FL

These MF'ers called my house after 9 pm and I have an infant daughter that I had just gotten to sleep and put in bed. I let them know what i thought of them and told them to never call this # again. I just saw that they also called 2 nights ago after 9pm. I wish these MFers would die slow, painful, agonizing deaths!!!

April 16th, 2008 J

Market Research. Asked a lot of questions about opinions on phone, internet and television service and companies that provide it.

April 8th, 2008 Advise

Just to add a quick note and please excuse my french. If these f*cking scumbags want to call you, let them! Here's what you do and it works very well, (if you have the time)! The next time one of these schmoe's call and want some of your time, tell them oh yes, can you hold on for about a minute i'll be right back? Go back in about thirty seconds and if they're still there tell them sorry then do the same thing because you are not done (with the excuse you laid on them), just be a second and just leave them hanging. Repeat if necessary! If you look at it this way, if we can keeps those d!ckheads on the line long enough they wont bother as many people.

April 7th, 2008 MG FL

Most recent calls were on 4/6/08 3:18pm, 3/31/08 9:11pm, 3/28/08 6:27pm, and 3/27/08 7:49pm, but they have been calling every few days for the past couple of months. It never stops. I never answer the phone unless I can tell by the caller ID that it's someone I know... you'd think that after a while they'd give up on me since I don't answer but it doesn't look like they will. From what I've read below, asking them to stop calling doesn't work any better. :-(

April 6th, 2008 AC GA

they have called twice, both around 5:30 pm, today is Sunday and we were having dinner for heaven sakes. I only answered because the area code is similar to one my friend has then too late I saw the number, it was the same guy who called before. I told him that I told them before that I am on the no call list and to stop calling, I've reported them. For all the good that will do...

Called us this evening. Did not leave message.

April 2nd, 2008 John NM

Left voicemail saying they were Echo Survey getting information from IT professionals. Left a call back number and a survey number to reference. They have called before not leaving a message. This was unsolicited. They called our receptionist and were transfered to my number.

April 1st, 2008 JD LA

The company calling is:
Universal Survey Center

March 25th, 2008 me NY

have gotten 4 calls from them in two hours tonite...first time, I didn't answer....2nd and third time, I answered and though I heard voices in the background, no one said anything to me, so I hung up...4th time, I let it ring.

when i called the number back, I got a recorded message saying something about it being a survey company and then it disconnects on its own.

i'm getting incredibly annoyed now.

March 13th, 2008 B Arthur

Got a call from this number tonight---Caller ID said "unavailable"--Nothing said

February 26th, 2008 Jessica NY

Called twice. Called ID gave the number and said MARKETING. When I called back a recording said that they had called because they were doing a survey. I waited on the line and was finally disconnected.

February 23rd, 2008 JB

Noticied on caller ID that this number had called, did not leave a message.

February 21st, 2008 Jenn

Just reported them to the Do Not Call Registry since our phone number is listed on it.

February 19th, 2008 Kayla CO

Calls repeatedly... URG I wish they would leave me alone!!!!!!!!!

February 19th, 2008 Aaron Slater WA

Could hear person on other end of line speaking to a colleague, lots of background noise. They hung up after I confronted them about not answering.

February 18th, 2008 Norm RI

Call came up on caller ID as unavailable, I did not answwer and let the call to to answering machine. Of course they do not have the courtesy to leave a message they just let the machine go on until yoou getthe message from the phone company "if you want to make a call, please hang up and dial again". I refuse to answer any calls that show up by state, unavailable or what ever these clowns choose to have come up. How stupid can they be when they know people have caller ID and will not answer anyhow. There should be a law that requires these clowns to identify themselves when they call.

February 17th, 2008 cj

It's universal Surveys. Whats sucks is they can legally call you repeatedly, even if you are on the list.

February 16th, 2008 Don CA

Called repeatedly left no messege.

February 16th, 2008 Co OR

Universal Services opinon ? Said that my number was randomly generated. Gave me his name really heavy spanish accent. Told me that calling the number back on my caller id woulnd not work.

February 14th, 2008 Laura CA

They call daily. No message.

February 13th, 2008 Germaine DE

The woman asked me if I was interested in a survey. I told her "NO," so she and I both hung up.

February 12th, 2008 babin

i am on the do not call list. this number calls at least 2 - 4 times a week. i have repeatedly asked to be removed.

they always want me to participate in a "survey". i always refuse.

tonight, when i saw the number on the caller id, i picked up and said, "i do not wish to participate in a survey". the female said that it would only be a couple of questions and that it wouldn't take long. i immediately hung up.

January 19th, 2008 RCD CT

Why doesn't my ANONYMOUS CALL REJECTION service block calls from "UNAVAILABLE" anyway?!
I let my answering machine pick this one up & the guy sounded like a telemarketer swine.
He said HELLO a couple of times & then hung up.
Everyone hates TELEPHONE SPAM, so we should push our legislators to make all spam an imprisonable offense.

called the number back and a guy answered.. told me i had the wrong number which was a lie because i called directly off my caller id.. al i can think of is SCAM!!!

January 11th, 2008 kj WA

There was no message on my voice mail, but whomever it was that called left their phone or head set off the hook so I had 5 minutes of personal conversations and back ground noise left on my voice mail.

January 11th, 2008 JM NM

A suggestion; Our household has a recorder that you can not leave a message on. What we have migrated to is the SKYPE Phone Service (VoIP). In order for you to call my home, you must be in my address book. All of my immediate family & friends are in the SKYPE address book, ergo: no phone calls from strangers or survey companies. The phone line with the recorder, that does not record and that you can not leave a message on was part of the QWEST DSL package. We don't use that phone except to make local outgoing telephone calls. We had even turned the ringer off on the QWEST phone line. I have no stock or business interests in SKYPE, but I do like the option to block all calls unless they are in your SKYPE address book. My EMAIL SPAM Filter works exactly the same way. QWEST or none of the Cell Phone Companies have this option to date.

January 11th, 2008 JM NM

Twice so far, got the fake recorder (You can not leave a message). They don't say anything then hang up. DON'T ANSWER THE PHONE!!!

January 10th, 2008 Linda FL

They called my office on 1/9/2008 and spoke with a co-worker. Told her they were doing a survey of paralegals about their jobs etc. Told her to call back and use code "LW109" (wonder if the code has anything to do with the date or if its just a coincidence) and that she would get paid $50 for her time. She passed the information along to me, it didnt sound right so I googled the phone number and ended up here. Glad I didnt waste my time or energy.

January 10th, 2008 Fela

Called 8:55 pm.

January 9th, 2008 Liz MA

Aggavating survey ctr-calls at 9pm at night. If you call the id number you get a message saying they can call you. The nerve! To talk to a human and demand they take you off their list (and what a run around they give you) is 212-391-5243.

January 3rd, 2008 JGurtz CT

They called again tonight 3 Jan 2008 at 18:17. CID still UNAVAILABLE. I pressed talk and said nothing, then put the handset on speakerphone and set it right next to the cooling fans on my Cisco 3600 series router (it has a nice high pitched whine). After about 10 seconds they hung up.


January 3rd, 2008 jgurtz CT

Got a call from this number at at a quarter past 7 on 1/2/2008. CallerID said UNKNOWN. I called 1-888-391-9991 and a man answered saying it's a survey company. I told him I was getting calls and wanted to be taken off the list. He said he couldn't do that because it was the evening shift and to call back between 9 and 5.

I posted the number 1-888-391-9991 on myspace asking ppl to call and ask the boiler room err office staffers to take fun surveys ;)

December 31st, 2007 CM

I received a call from this number 'unavailable' 1-646-467-6665 at 744pm 12/30/2007 (a sunday night!). I am sick of polls, surveys etc and am on the do not call list, so I have been commenting on these sites to share info with others who are being harassed by these calls. This evening the person said hello this is Ray from national survey something or other I don't know because I don't care and don't want them calling me so I just said "goodbye Ray" and hung up. I see from the above posts that these calls are from New York. I live in Georgia. Hopefully they won't call back. I also still file a complaint online with these numbers on the DO NOT CALL list anyway, because by the different stories above, you don't what they are or claim to be except a bunch of LIARS!

December 22nd, 2007 George

Calls constantly - I never answer and they never leave a message

December 22nd, 2007 K MN

it's from the company universal survey center however it's not the same number you call to actually get a hold of someone from the company. More than likely it's a computer glich.

December 19th, 2007 mare MO

Caller ID said unavailable so I didn't answer and they left no msg.

These morons have a number they expect incoming calls on. It is 1-888-391-9991. They don't like it when people call in on this number to make complaints... HINT.

November 29th, 2007 newbie MA

How cool that this site exists! I just got a call from this number but didn't answer because an alcoholic ex-friend had the same area code and I couldn't remember the rest of his number. So I googled the number and found this site! I'm glad I didn't answer the call. Oh, btw, caller ID said "Unavailable."

November 29th, 2007 Kat VA

They call here two or three times a day. I never bother to answer and they never leave a message. I wish they would just away.

November 20th, 2007 Kristina AZ

This same # has called me twice, asking for me by my full name. Each time they call it has been nearly 10pm! I told them they were calling a family's home and to try again at a decent hour.

November 20th, 2007 sheri CT

not sure who this is but it keeps showin up on my caller ID

November 20th, 2007 Debbie MD

I am so sick and tired of these jerks calling my phone. I suspect this is a political pollster or some other annoying bum.

November 17th, 2007 S.

Has called numerous times on weekends. Caller ID says "Cellular Call", but since I don't know the person I don't answer the phone. They hang up on my machine. Looked them up and found this site, and just filed a complaint with the FCC. "Universal Survey", or whoever they are, should be shut down. Now I'm going to call the phone company and see if I can block the number. Thanks for all of the useful information!!

Caller ID said New York.

Female asked if I could take a web survey on cars for 20.00 bucks.

Wanted me personal email for the log in for the survey, I gave them a web mail addy and some generic info. From what I have read , over 1.5 years and NO complaints have stopped them? Found this site on Google because she never gave me the web addy to take the survey just took my email and wanted to know how many cars I owner, that's it! Strange? Strange enough to have me google the number. I can only hope and pray that by "taking the survey" they will now leave me alone. Seems very off they can strike our homes with impunity as if they are above all laws.

I have told them repeatedly not to call. They apologize. They call 3 or 4 times a week. I no longer answer.

November 16th, 2007 Mike NV

Said that I would be given $20 for completing survey.

November 15th, 2007 colacoca TX

Another pain in the ass low life nuisance calls multiple times a day.
We don't want their business, We want peace of mind.
I work the night shift, now tell me how you would feel sleeping on days
and rather than only responding to very important calls, here comes one
of them bugs ringing my phone all day.

November 15th, 2007 JG CA

Second time I've answered a call from this number; this time the person said "hello" and then quickly hung up.

November 14th, 2007 Henry NY

Found out this Universal Survey Center was harrassing people on behalf of cingular/att wireless. I called cingular/att wireless and told them I would not renew my contract with them due to these calls. Maybe now they would stop bugging me.

November 13th, 2007 Terry CA

Caller ID unavailable, got their phone number (212) 391-5247, whichis different from caller id. Claim to be EMC Research. Informed them to remove our number and regardless what they call themselves they get agressive and do not respond positively to get your number off their marketing or so called research list

November 13th, 2007 Vivien

called MANY times by this number. They hang up when I warn them I'm on a "NO CALL" LIST AND I'LL REPORT THEM.

I told them not to call back, but they do. I told them that I am on the do not call list, they say that they don't have to worry about that list because they are not based in the US.

November 7th, 2007 Al TX

Received 1 call daily from 10/10/07 thru 10/28/07--no message left on ans machine.

November 7th, 2007 D-man NJ

Oh I love screwing with telemarketers. Here's what you do ( if you want to waste thier time and have a little fun ), when your caller ID says unavailable or unknown, you just know it's a telemarketer, so pick up the phone and don't say anything. You'll usually hear about 3 or 4 seconds of silence, or clicking or a switching noise. Be patient now.... wait for it.... you'll hear "hello?" then you have a real person. DON'T SAY ANYTHING. Immediately hit AND HOLD DOWN the star or pound key. OMG it's gotta perturb these idiots to get an ear full of that tone. hehehheheh
I have a friend that got an air horn noise maker - like your hear at football games - it's basically a hand held boat air horn. AND MAN IS IT LOUD!!! He uses the same technique until he gets a real person and puts that into the phone BWAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH that'll deafen someone! HAAHAHAH - I gotta get one of those for my phone in the shop.
Don't get mad at telemarketers, get even LOLOL
Have fun!

PS - Here's another tip - If you have caller ID, you can bounce ANY number that has it's ID blocked. i.e. - I NEVER see "Blocked" on my CID because I turned on the "ID block blocker" feature and those calls never come through. They hear a pre-recorded message that tells them I don't accept calls from numbers that are blocked. "Please remove you caller ID block and try your call again" is the last part of the message.


November 5th, 2007 Jodi CT

I answered, he said, "hello" two times and then proceeded to hang up on me.

November 1st, 2007 Wendy PA

I wish there wa a way to stop these annoying calls. No messages left. I dont answer it anymore when I see it is this number. Always comes up unavailable. The very first call asked for me by name then there was breathing and they hung up. It took a couple of weeks they called again and nothing at all. SO I contacted the phone company when I tried to just block that number and couldnt and of course this number is unblockable.

October 23rd, 2007 Lee CA

Check number and I did not answer. Caller ID equals "Unavailable". No message left.

October 20th, 2007 Frank NY

The the donotcall list does not work against these "people". As long as they masquerade as a research company the law does not apply to them, however there is a way to fight back, and that is by reporting them to the company that sponsered the survey. Call them up and say these Universal Survey creatures are continually harassing you and/or they were rude. If all fails ask to speak to their supervisor and let them have it. After a verbal thrashing I'm sure they will remember to remove your name from the calling list.

Have fun.

October 20th, 2007 Rob NY

This number called me recently claiming to be from Key Bank

October 12th, 2007 Td CA

Didn't answer since I didn't recognize the number - or the area code for that matter.

October 12th, 2007 Margie TX

Called today...didn't say a word but I could hear them breathing. I won't answer next time.

October 11th, 2007 Kat VA

These people have called several times a week for months on end. I never answer since I don't know who they are. They never leave a message. I'm getting sick of this and I'm going to report them to the donotcall people since I'm on the list and keep reporting them every time they call. Let them prove they aren't telemarketers.

October 11th, 2007 RN VA

The lady on the phone said they were doing a survey for Ipsos surveys. This is the 4th time in a month. They hung up as soon as I said I was on the Do Not Call list.

October 9th, 2007 Z. Antolak IL

Called and asked if there were any males in the house 18 or older, said it was for some kind of health survey. Talked over us and mumbled.

October 8th, 2007 J. Dunky CT

They've called all week according to Caller ID but left no msg. Judging from people's comments on the page, people get hung up on right after 'hello'. This is most likely due to the fact that this operation is preying on elderly people; if the 'hello' sounds like it is from someone in their late 70's, 80's etc, they try to hook them and use whatever means necessary to extract money from them. If you sound anything remotely younger than that, you'll get hung up on. Sound like you are or are not in that demographic and they'll claim to be a 'survey' company to ask you how old you are. This company is most likely a boiler room, fly-by-night operation that preys on the elderly.

October 8th, 2007 cody CA

i answered... they hung up..called back..its said it was from the universal survey center..

October 5th, 2007 Jerry TX

If they are going to call us, they need to speak understandable english.

Got a call from this number at 9:00 PM EST on a Monday night. I didn't answer, and they didn't leave a message. I was very upset that someone would call me at 9:00 PM.

Just received call, "UNAVAILABLE" on caller ID, no message left.

September 25th, 2007 DA OR

Monday 9-24-07 5:33PM PDT They're back. ;-) 2nd *57 gathered and THIS time the morons left some sort of unintelligible message on my answering machine. Just need one more to begin the process in earnest. THis company is truly a bunch of low lifes.

September 22nd, 2007 DA OR

1-646-467-6665 & "Unknown" on Saturday, Sept. 22, 2007 @ 10:18AM PDT. When my answering machine picked up they hung-up. Qwest customer here. *57 said it captured the trace (this works despite the one paranoid commenter who is suspicious that the phone company is behind these calls to promote various services). Just need 2 more *57 and THEN the D0-Not-Call registry complaint for good measure. A blog post, and move my phone number over to the new Grand Central as soon as they offer the ability to move an existing #.

But, what is on the horizon which will REALLY tame these types of companies is a new company that Google recently purchased: which offers features that allow you to not only permanently block certain #s but also the ability to RECORD both sides of a conversation, on-the-fly (in states where legal) which would make for handy evidence collection or at least deterrent. Grand Central has the most extensive set of features for call handling that I have ever seen from any other company, and now that Google owns them they should have decent financial backing, etc. This COULD potentially be a real relief for consumers by providing us with REAL control of how are calls are handled / routed. Who knows, maybe if it gains extensive popularity it will contribute to the END of crap companies like Universal.

September 22nd, 2007 Jen

UNAVAILABLE...they hung up when my machine picked up. Anyone on the "do not call" registry can report them (file a complaint on reported another number and the calls finally stopped.

September 18th, 2007 Fab FL

Called once today at 6:48 PM, but I have received phony calls from other numbers lately, I'm in the DNC list.

September 17th, 2007 G May

The caller ID shows NY, NY.I called the phone number back. It is a working # and it is for a place called Universal Survey Center. I went to their web site and to "contact us" and sent an email asking that my phone # be removed from their calling list. I pointed out that although they are taking surveys and as such are not in violation of the list, since I am now asking that my phone # be removed (and I did print out my email message)I must assume if they do not respect my request and call again (but it does take some days to remove a name from the call directory so one has to be reasonable about giving them at least a few days to comply) then I would have to assume that they now would be in violation.

September 17th, 2007 Rhonda MA

This number called my house numerous times on 9/17/07. No messages just calling over and over again

asked if I worked for the city, when I said yes, they hung up

August 29th, 2007 James Robinson FL

Do what I do. Ask the caller if they know Mr. Robinson personally and explain they are talking to a special agent from the FBI. Tell the caller Mr. Robinson was assasinated this morning and ask the caller for her full name, date of birth, home and business address, social security number etc. and explain they may well be bringing her in for questioning!!

I could hear people talking in the backround but I couldn't hear anyone directly speaking to me! And it was very annoying!

August 27th, 2007 D.B. NC

They called at 9:12 pm my local time. Debt collectors are not allowed to call after 9 pm, by law. I didn't answer and don't intend to.

August 25th, 2007 Paula CA

On answering, it clicks over to a service center where I can hear a lot of operaters. They say, "Hello?" I just listen, say nothing. I know they can hear my TV, but I let them sit and ask, "Hello? Hello?" Finally they hang up. Has happened 3 times in about a week. Called the number back and got a short recording saying it was Universal Service; that they are a survey company for commercial and political purposes; not selling anything...etc. Maybe sometimes they hang up when people answer because they're surveying to see when people are home answering their phones!

August 23rd, 2007 Taylor PA

Called the number back, and it is a Universal Survey Co.

August 20th, 2007 J.R. TX

Recieved call at 12 noon. As soon as she mentioned a survey I informed her that they were in violation of both the state and national Do-Not-Call list and that I was reporting the call. Hung up.

August 13th, 2007 Liz

I get calls from this number anywhere between 2 and 6 tims a day. I never answer. You'd think they'd give up after not getting an answer after calling for a month.

August 10th, 2007 jm OH

someone from this number has called me 4 nights in a row to do a survey... asked them to PLEASE remove me from their list.

August 4th, 2007 Jerry WA

Same as everyone else, Unavailable-didnt answer-first call as far as I know, refuse to answer unidentifiable calls

July 31st, 2007 DC

Wonderful news everyone! I took the advice from another person's post, and contacted the website, and within two days those diabolical calls stopped! Their email is
This has been one month now, so I know those unkind people will never call me again. I had even called Universal Survey's 212 number, and a lady seemed nice and apologetic, and said they would stop, but they continued to harrass me. There has to be accountability and legal methods, and the FTC clearly solved the problem. Please try this.

The number 646-467-6665 has been calling regularly and I never answered it. I have read this board and want to thank Jim for the information on calling Pactel. I called and got a nice lady that said she would handle it and also let her know that I am on the Do Not Call List. She was very nice and helpful. My question is does this work?

July 19th, 2007 SD

My local phone company urged me to file a complaint with my State Attorney Generals Office. You can do this at the Dept of Justice web site for your state. Let's get this stopped!!!!!

July 19th, 2007 HaLo

Did anyone ever think to call the number back? When I get a chance I will.

July 19th, 2007 Jodi GA

These idiots call constantly. Last call was to my house at 9:05pm est on 7/19. I looked up the website and emailed them to take my name off their call list immediately. By the looks of other comments, am doubtful it will do any good.

July 18th, 2007 SD

I have received 6 calls in 9 days, 3 of which I answered and told them to leave me alone. They hung up on me. You can't tell me this is just a survey when they are calling that many times !!!!!!

July 18th, 2007 J C CA

July 16th, 2007 D OR

Answered the phone and said, "May I asked who's speaking?" They said, "NO!" Then hung up. They've called everyday and I'm making wierd noises and silly phrases. SOMEBODY HAS GOT TO STOP THESE GUYS!

called Paetec Communications. You can call them at 1-877-340-2600(toll free) I let them know that we filled a complaint to these numbers, and they maybe implicated in this filling, they are looking into this company, they have been getting alot of complaints, if you get this # again I would advise you to call the phone co. and log a complaint to this company phone # 646-354-2041 AND 646-467-6665 who knows it might just work.

July 12th, 2007 Colleen NJ

I had to pull the info out of her. She aked for my husband (after 9PM) and when I said, "not here" said she would call back later. I kept asking her questions and she answered them. Am looking into contacting the company b/c she did NOT identify herself as a political caller upfront.

July 8th, 2007 Becky CO

I don't answer any unavailables or unknowns, period. Whoever it was hung up before my answering machine picked up. I am on the do not call list and I don't think it works at all because I am constantly getting telemarketers etc.

July 8th, 2007 Fran

This number was on the caller id, when I answered, a few seconds went by and then they hung up without saying anything.

July 6th, 2007 Kathy

One call so far 7:30pm. No message, they just hung up.

July 6th, 2007 DC

This company, I have determined, is a weird and cruel group, with only bad purposes. They called for a month, I did not answer it, since it said "unavailable". Then, after I read the comments from other people, I answered it the next time, just to politely ask them to remove my name from their list, and politely stated that I am on the do not call list. The person stumbled through his speech, and did not even know the name of his company at first. He said they would remove my name, but then two weeks later they called again. I called back and there was only a message stating their "survey" purpose, but no ability for me to leave a message. I suggest that every possible legal means be employed by some of you, to bring justice to them. It is obviously not a reputable company and likely criminal in behavior.

July 4th, 2007 Jessica KS

They called me several times as well. This is why I never answer any "unavailable" numbers. They seriously need to get a life.

July 1st, 2007 amy CT

comes up on the caller id. So we let it go to the machine then they hang up.

June 30th, 2007 kev VA

This is a number used by a consumer survey company and is currently being used by Subway to test out a new sandwich. If you go there and you happen to get the new sandwich and this customer support rep is there they will offer you a certificate for a free sandwich in exchange for your number and address so they can conduct a survey on the sandwich and possibly send you another free coupon. However, this company is not representing Subway and is a contract consumer survey specialist used by many different companies.

June 29th, 2007 lm QC Canada

This number called my cell last night at 10:45 pm EDT. Didnt pick up because i thought it could be one of my friends. Called again today at 7:30 pm.. At least this site exists so i know never to answer..

June 26th, 2007 ChuckZ

Sending a complaint about this phone number to the FCC's website won't do much good. I filled out a complaint form and got a form letter back stating in part "...After reviewing your complaint, we have determined that we cannot take enforcement action in this case because, based on complaint, the caller is exempt from the Do-Not-Call rules." That, my friends and neighbors is our distinguished Government and out tax's dollars at work.

June 25th, 2007 Kate FL

This company has called me numerous times. When I don't recognize the phone
number and it says it's from
"Out of Area" I just don't answer the calls. No messages left on my answering machine. I will continue to ignore the calls but will report them to the National No Call Register.

Calls late at night. 10pm CST. They ring twice and hang up. I did answer once, and the woman sounded older and sounded like she was trying to get me to do a survey. They call 3/4 times per day. Very annoying.

Hung Up When Answered

June 20th, 2007 ME

They keep calling and wont stop. I have tried calling Universal, but it does no good. I asked why they keep calling and they said until I answer the survey, they will keep calling. I said then it's harassment and hung up.

Received several calls from them in early evening hours CST over past couple of weeks. I let my answering machine screen unrecognized numbers for me. They always hang up without leaving a message. Shows up as "cellular call" on my caller ID.

June 11th, 2007 Mike

Someone ought to invent an inline device that can filter out calls that YOU don't want, because the Federal Trade Commission
(do not call list) protects industry, not the citizens! They give lip service to protecting the consumer from these unwanted calls!
If I don't want calls, I shouldn't get the calls, period, irregardless of whether I have done business in the past with one of their subsidiaries or parent companies, or whatever!
Electronic whizzes, get inventing!

June 11th, 2007 Susan RI

The number had appeared on my caller ID a few times, and the caller does not leave a voice message. When calls come through I almost always check caller ID and will not answer calls I do not recognize. This includes the Unavailables. However, I was in a hurry last Saturday and did answer. After each of us exchanged a couple of hello's, she said "How are you?" Knowing she didn't care, I asked, "Is this a telemarketing call?" She said, "No, this is a survey." I said, "We don't do surveys" and hung up. Seconds later the telephone rang again. I raised the receiver and hung up to stop the ringing. I do not answer unknown calls because I do not want to tip anyone off as to whether we are home. If it's important, they can leave a voice message. By the way, we dropped Verizon due to persistent problems a year ago. Their *57 service is a scam. You never see anything for the $4 you pay. As soon as we dropped them the five months of problems abruptly stopped. After the Verizon rep was blantantly rude, I reported their scam to the Attorney General. They make a lot of $ selling services and counter-services that are supposed to help us protect ourselves from dubious callers to whom services are sold to by-pass each service we are offered.

Called a few times in the last week. On my cell phone. I tried the 212-391-5243 number listed by Aaron on 1/31/07 and told them to remove my number immediately. Asked how many times a day I needed to call that number in order to make sure that no one else calls my cell phone?
I'll also try some of Mark's info from 6/6/07. Thanks!

These assholes have been calling and not leaving messages for a couple weeks now. I finally looked into the matter, found their web site, called the number there. I doubt that will do any good from the sound of things, but the man I talked to sounded like he was taking me off their calling list.

Then I found this site...

June 5th, 2007 Jim CT


didn't intentionally leave message, but the answering machine picked up significant background noise (about 1-one thousand worth)

June 3rd, 2007 Zuzu PA

Have called repeatedly, always call at dinner time and shortly there after on weekdays, and afternoons on weekends. They sometimes don't even let the phone ring enough for us to answer it, just enough for us to get up to respond. They truly are a nuisance, and disobey the 'do not call' parameters.

June 2nd, 2007 Stephanie FL

From New York ... I called the number back and the message said it was a marketing research company.

June 2nd, 2007 Maria

These idiots claim to be with a suvey company. Woman who called me has such a thick accent, I could hardly understand her. She was extremely rude and hung up on me before I could say add me you your DNC list.

June 2nd, 2007 sunny

they are some kind of survey company asking question. mother fuckers called so many times and I also complained in the but so far no action.

June 1st, 2007 Blank CT

When I did not answer and my machine picked up, I heard a busy signal recording.

Answered the phone yesterday. My hubby hung up on them. I answered today told they said they were conducting a survey. I told them we were on the do not call list, we will see if that works.

May 28th, 2007 Pat

Will not leave a message, called the number back and got a recording stating they were a survey company NOT selling anything. Yea right....

May 27th, 2007 Amanda GA

Called May 27th, 2007 at 4:07pm. Said conducting a survey on restuarants. Told them remove our number, we will see if they do.

May 26th, 2007 Martha TX

I got a call from this ph# yesterday, & today. Today i picked up the phone, but didn't say anything. I could hear the noise of what sounded like a Call Center=Then a woman with a foreign accent said-"Hello", & I hung-up on her.

NUMEROUS calls from this number; never leave a message.

May 25th, 2007 Rob IN

I don't know how interested any of you are or if you have the time for this idea, but it's worked for me in the past. If you go here and download the "Call not completed, please check number or call operator" wav file and record it to your answering machine the calls will stop. I recorded it and let it keep running so the pause before the beep is so long they'll hang up before it so it doesn't tip them off. The only thing is, you'll need to let others know so they don't think you've been disconnected or check your ID and call them back. Here's the link if you want to try it:

May 24th, 2007 GDub TX

Said he was conducting a survey for restaurants and needed to speak with a male. When I said to put me on their "do not call list," he said they were not a telemarketing comp. i said add me anyway.

May 23rd, 2007 Jo

Got call this evening - my daughter answered (seeing that is was a cell phone) and a Spanish speaking man asked if there "was a man in the house over age 18" so she hung up. (She shouldn't have answered at all and none of us will now that we've read these posts!)

May 22nd, 2007 Amy VA

I didn't answer the phone since it was "unavailable"

May 21st, 2007 Alisia

May 16th, 2007 J CA

Very annoyed by this caller calling in the AM and PM not saying anything when picking up, not leaving messages. STILL CALLING!!

May 15th, 2007 Rose WV

Did not answer phone. If someone is trying to hide their identity on caller ID, I do not answer phone.

May 15th, 2007 Henny NV

They keep calling. They are conducting surveys. The last time they called 05/14/07 8:23pm PST

May 15th, 2007 Mimi CA

This number said it was Universal Survey Inc. and they do political and other surveys. They claim they are not trying to sell anything and are looking forward to your opinion

May 15th, 2007 Melissa IL

person hummed a tune on my voice mail

May 11th, 2007 Ray CO

I didn't answer. I hate anon calls. Thanks for the info. all.

I suggest looking into a modem that is caller ID ready and use call blocking software. I've been testing this out with some free ware and may actually build a small computer just to be my electronic call blocking, answering machine. Never trust the phone company to get it right. Do it yourself.

May 10th, 2007 KL NH


May 5th, 2007 Debbie MI

I didn't answer, and they hung up before the answering machine kicked on.

April 30th, 2007 Mr E Guest AR

Numerous calls each day, no message left on answering machine. Am going to use TelZapper machine to remove my number, which is on Nat'l and State Do Not Call Registeries.

April 27th, 2007 Carol CT

We told him we were on "Do Not Call" list and he hung up on us

April 26th, 2007 ChuckZ

There are many companies that use a random phone number (that's how they get your unlisted number) and automatic dialer to make these calls. They mask themselves as a survey company to try and get around the Government rules, but will more than likely try to sell you something in the end. When you pick up the phone, it may go to a recorded message asking questions where you hit a key on your phone for the answers. When you're done with the survey, it rolls over to a telemarketer, if one is available. The calling company may dial 100 numbers and have about 10 folks to answer the calls. That's why you may get a hang-up because no one is available to take your call. They play the odds that 1 in 10 folks will get through the survey and want to go on with the call.

The following is taken from the "Do-not-call" information page: "If the call is really for the sole purpose of conducting a survey, it is not covered. Only telemarketing calls are covered — that is, calls that solicit sales of goods or services. Callers purporting to take a survey, but also offering to sell goods or services, must comply with the National Do Not Call Registry."

So if you receive a call from this type of company, file a report with the FCC at the following web site in hopes of putting these crooks out of business:

April 24th, 2007 Rick LA

These cyber-terrorist parasites are harassing us too. There's more complaints here:

April 24th, 2007 matt OR

They've called every night between 7 and 9 PM Pacific in the past week, and it has woken my daughter up twice. We're on the Do Not Call list for a reason. They need to stop.

April 21st, 2007 Kristin

They just called on 4/21 at 12:03 PM Central time. I just Googled the number to here, answered, and hung it right back up so it would stop ringing. My husband works second shift and is still asleep, anyway. It came up as unavailable, but the number still showed? That's kinda dumb.

April 21st, 2007 Josh DC

Asked them 5 times to stop calling. They don't stop. Finally had to call block the number.

April 20th, 2007 Marc

CALLED ME 10 TIMES a survey about home entertainment

April 20th, 2007 Buzzy WA

Had a call from "Ray Johnson" of "Universal Survey." Uncooperative on identifying his company. Phone co. Last Call Return yielded the number. Caller hung up before I could request do not call again.
Why do they call since I'm on the national Do Not Call registry? Submitted complaint to FTC.

April 19th, 2007 Lori OH

Ironically, as I sat here reading the messages regarding this phone number my phone rang....and of course it was this company. They have repeatedly called and hung up and low & behold this time there was a man on the line! I allowed him to give me his name (Ron Masterson for anyone interested) and that he was calling with a survey. I let him know that I was quite amused that he would call while I was researching this phone # and the company behind the calls. He, however, did not find this is as comical as I did. I let him know quite clearly and forcefully that I was on the national Do Not Call list and while I realized that did not necessarily apply to surveys that I was directing him & his company to place me on their Do Not Call list. Should they call again I will take further action beginning with the Better Business Bureau and with the second phone call to an attorney. I'm waiting w/ baited breath to see if I hear from Ron or his company again. I will report back if I do.

April 2nd, 2007 Barry VA

They called the other night and asked about my leisure habits. I told them I enjoy a nice, quiet evening at home without unsolicited calls. They asked if there's a better time to call; I said no. Tonight they called again...I answered...they hung up. Unbelievable! Are they REALLY the company at ? I wonder if their supposed contact number (212 391 5243) is valid...

April 2nd, 2007 PD ME

Same here.

March 29th, 2007 Tony CO

they called, there was silence from them but some background noise. they hung up when i asked what they were wearing, and if their mommy had dressed them.


March 28th, 2007 CZ CA

Okay, folks, it's time to stop complaining and figure out how this scam works. Who would spend their time making calls and hanging up? Where's the profit in it if you're not talking to anybody on the other end to sell them something? These calls cost money, and somebody is paying. The question is who. My own suspicion is that the phone companies themselves are behind it, paying these people to harass everyone, and calling it a "survey" mostly as a pretense. Sure, the real survey question is "how many people actually pick up the phone"? Does that make it legal? I don't know. But what's the real purpose behind it? I can think of only one. The phone companies make a mint off the Caller ID service. If people continue to get harassing calls, they'll continue to subscribe to Caller ID. Hence the real purpose is simply to drum up business. What's the solution? Press your state's public utilities commission to make Caller ID free. Sure, basic rates will end up going up to compensate. But the phone company's incentive to fund this irritation will disappear.

When I see the phone number on my caller ID display, I simply ignore the phone.

March 27th, 2007 ubba OR

I wonder how many times it is someone younger than 16 answering the phone and they continue with the "conversation".

March 26th, 2007 Andrew TX

This is a bad one. I got a survey call about weight loss. I looked up 646 and its Ontario Canada based upon information.

March 16th, 2007 Wendy

picked up the phone, said hello, someone said hello then hung up. to whoever is calling: get a life.

March 13th, 2007 DB

Received two phone calls and one hangup / one to voicemail this morning. This is NOT the first time they've called; this is just the first time I'm actually doing something about it. They are calling my CELLPHONE. I followed the advice from Jim (see 9/14/06 posting) and called the telephone company that handles this number. The gal that answered was extrememly polite, informed her of the problem and that I am on the Do Not Call list, and they are handling it from their end. I also told her that this number has PLENTY of posts to back this up, and that people are being called at all hours of the night and hassled. I suggest anyone receiving calls in the future continue to call the telephone company, and hopefully they'll receive so many calls, this will take care of itself.

March 10th, 2007 Maria AZ

These jerks called last night and got my husband to confirm personal information because they said they were doing a survey on "elder care." I know better than to give out info on an incoming call, but somehow they convinced hubby that they were legit. He talked to them for about five minutes before I started screaming "hang up the phone." I think they are operatives working on collecting info for an illegal database of Americans.

March 10th, 2007 Mike NY

I had the same problem. Went to pick up the phone and they hung up. They seem to want to play games. Fine, I'll play. On Monday I will start send faxes to their number and any other they call on.

March 9th, 2007 Jen

They called at 9 pm on a Sunday night and 9:45 pm on the following Friday night. I told them both times it was too late at night and they weren't allowed to call at those times. The woman said she was from a research/survey company. I demanded both times that they never call me again (obviously it didn't work). These people are the lowest of the low!

March 8th, 2007 Ryan CA

Does anyone know if it's possible to find out who sold these jerks my number?

March 8th, 2007 David OK

The first call asked to speak to the person that did most of the shopping for the house.
Of course I told them that person was not home at the time.
The second call was from the same number and they hung up on me.
I called it back to complain, but all I got was a voice recording for Universal Survey Co. stating that they are a Marketing Research and survey company.

February 10th, 2007 Joe

When I answer, they don't speak, just hang up. Why bother calling??

February 10th, 2007 CA

They call several times a day and say they are Universal Survey Co. I tell them to take me off their list and they refuse. They say they will continue to call everyday until I take their stupid survey. I'm on the Fed. Do Not Call List.

They've called twice in the last two days, both in the evening time. Comes up as an Unavailable number. I won't answer.

January 31st, 2007 Aaron

I've been receiving these Survey calls and finally started doing some research.. Somehow got onto the lookup on 6463542041 but was linked back to Universal Survey company... this guy ran the number all the way down to a corporate number at 212-391-5243... I just called and told them to remove me immediately and gave the # they where calling. We'll see where this goes...

January 31st, 2007 Aaron

Been calling about every other day for the past week or two... You call the number back and tells you a message then hangs up on you... ANNOYING!

January 31st, 2007 Joan

They called Jan. 30, 2007 at 12:40 PM EST and didn't leave a message. Called back the same day at 9:05 PM. I answered. The woman identified herself as someone from a survey company (didn't catch the name) and asked me if I would participate in a survey. I asked her what it was about and she said "cell phones." I asked how long it would take and she said 15 minutes. I agreed to take the survey. She then asked me if I worked for an advertising agency. I said no. She then asked if I was between the ages of 16-75. I said yes. And THEN THE PHONE CLICKED OFF! She disconnected us.

I see from other postings here that this is their pattern. For what purpose? Are they just trying to find out when someone answers the phone?

Very strange. I recall that a man called me several days ago asking if I would answer a survey about cell phones and I said that I didn't have the time at that moment but to call back. The man said, "Oh we will" Sounds like it was the same company.

January 30th, 2007 KYG NJ

I called the number and an answer machine stated they are a survey company, not telemarketers and interested in my opinion. However, I was not connected to anyone nor allowed to leave a message. Obviously, they ARE NOT that interested in my opinion.

January 29th, 2007 Shari CO

Got a call from this number again today and after weeks of letting it ring after each 1-2 calls per day, I finally decided to pick it up to demand they quit calling me. The man on the other end asked to speak to the person in charge of buying cleaning products for my company. I informed him this was a private number on a no-call list and he promptly apologized and said he would remove my number. I am not holding my breath.

January 29th, 2007 Michael

Got a call this morning that left no msg. From what I've read here, I should answer the next time and ask to be put on their do-not-call list.

Unfortunately, surveys are exempt from the do-not-call list, even commercial ones. But absolutely everyone is required to stop calling you, once you've asked them to. If they call after that, you can make a little money suing them. I've heard it's pretty easy and they usually settle out of court.

January 27th, 2007 MBB CA

Saw this missed call from 646 467 6665. Checked the area code. Seemed weird as I know no one in Jersey - did a google search and found this page/site -- Wow the power of the internet. Great for combating idiots like these people are.

Great site! Called me at 10 to 7 tonite, something about a health insurance. When I asked how they got my number, said it was computer generated. I repeatedly screamed "did I give you my f'in number?" which led to more 'was comp generated' replies. I kept waiting for the poor moron to hang up on me, caslling him an f'tard, f'ing moron, f'ing idiot each time I asked him why he was calling me if I didn't give him my number. So I had my fun, called him an f'ing moron (I know, vocabulary isn't my strong point) and hung up.

Have called us multiple times for the past 3 days always after 9:15pm EST wanting to do a survey. Have told them each time to stop calling and take us off the list and that we have 3 small children and don't appreciate them calling so late. Seems like the madder we get at them the more they call. Always comes up unavailable but the number 1-646-467-6665 comes up.

somebody called from this number 905-365-9795, Canada,
area code i don't know anybody in Canada, do you get calls from this number ?

December 21st, 2006 REC

Many months I received phone calls in evening and weekends and they say nothing and hang up. Unable to call block the number. Then, last week, 12-12-06, they call me at approx. 2:00 AM. Female voice speaking Spanish repeating the same phrase over and over. I hung up. They called back 5 minutes later and said nothing. What profits someone with a cell phone in N.Y. to be harassing me in Dallas, TX ? Telemarketers?

December 21st, 2006 Riky

Just received a call. Did not answer but did call back the displayed number: 646-467-6665 and reached a recorded message for Universal Surveys or research. Asked in previous calls to take me off their call list to no avail.

December 2nd, 2006 DNC

NY, NY. Claimed to want a survey.

December 1st, 2006 Vermont Miss CT

Today (12/01/06) at 12:18, a person called asking me to take a survey. I asked how he got my number and he said it was computer generated and their company was exempt from the Do Not Call list. I told him I would answer questions but would hang up if he asked anything I did not want to answer. He asked only if my age was between 16 and 70. Then thanked me and hung up. Someone in previous answers said they felt these were foreign calls but the map on your site did not shop any 'flags' outside the continental U.S.

December 1st, 2006 Texas

At 20:37:76 hours this number called and there was no message left. I Thursday. November 30, 2006. Then last time they called you could the voice of a hispanic female speaking spanish in the background. Very low key as not to disturb who ever was on the phone and she was laughting as she was talking to the person on the phone. They must have listened to the automated voice on the answering device and then the beep signal sounded then a few seconds later they hung up.

November 29th, 2006 Kathleen LA

No one said anything, so I hung up after a bit.

November 29th, 2006 Tim

I know that is right. But they need show these people that we're not such push overs.

November 29th, 2006 Gary

What is the point being on the no call list if they can still allowed to call you. It doesn't make any since. Why even have a do not call list.Sounds like the system is getting to soft on law breakers.

November 29th, 2006 William

Number ( 646-467-6665 ) Is a Cellular/PCS from lower Manhattan of New York, New York. It is a collection company firm using statics like like doing surveys, or even calling to see if you are home. They also do surveilance work so they do know when you are at home when they call you. They even know when you are on the computer when they check thru your phone lines without your knowledge of them doing that. They can even get on your phone system when you are talking to someone. Some you use a cordless phone that works anround the Ghz freq. Even if it has the job of operating on so many different freqs.

That will not stop them in listening in on you.

November 29th, 2006 Do not say

The reason they say the rules and regulations do not apply to them is that they are calling you from another country. They showed a part on 60 minutes one time that showed these people in India in these small spaces with computers and head sets talking to other people here in the states. Just like when you call American Online. That is who you are talking to someone in India. So think about. Their getting away with breaking our laws and they do not even think about hurting your feelings about it.

November 28th, 2006 Bill

There was no one there when I said hello.

November 22nd, 2006 CM NJ

After checking this number on the internet, I added it to my BLOCK list with ATT's CallVantage "Call Filtering". A great feature.

November 22nd, 2006 Grant IL

Hey...there's this comedian that used to work for this company...Universal Survey. Check out his blog ( and the Sept 21 or 22 entry on this...funny! AND I've suggested he turn our frustration into a Borat style Comedy Central deal to get this SOB's to stop calling!

OH, one more thing, my telcom said to call the FCC Complaint Division at 888-252-5322 and your state's Public Utilities Commission. They can make things unpleasant for Universal.

November 21st, 2006 Grant IL

Keep getting the 646-467-6665 calls. Read someone's comments that Universal Survey can be reached at 212-391-5243. Called them and told them to take my name off their list or I would contact my state and NY state Attorney General Office. I'm also calling my telephone service provider and tell them to contact Univeral on my behalf as I feel this is telephone harrassment since I told the caller several times to take my # off their list.

November 20th, 2006 CH

Called on a Sunday afternoon. Caller ID said Unavailable but the phone number showed up. A man asked for a particular household member by name. When I asked who is calling he said he had sent a postcard to the household member and was conducting a survey. I said the person was not here.

November 20th, 2006 Sam

These people are telemarkers that are trying to gather information from you. A scam going on and use this information to sell to a third party for profit. They say they are doing surveys, or selling magazines. Please people do not give this out to anyone over the unsecure phone lines specially over wireless phones IE cell phone. You they know when you are home when ever you are on your computer, they even use and see you if you have a webcam hook up to your computer thru a dsl line. Withoout your knowledge, or even being the even the wisor that they are there observing you and getting information from you. They have toys and tool software that enables them to do this. You may think that you have the best internet protection that money can buy, but there is no such thing, cause there are ways to get around such systems without your knowledge there is someone there.

November 19th, 2006 BP MO

Company called ICR. Survey company.

November 18th, 2006 Do not say

There are some people in this world that nothing better to do but call other people up doing surveys and advertising to push and sell products. That in a way they Scam artist. They think that they are smart using caller ID block. But they are not. They are fools. They are stupid. Not very Bright on their part when they call. They think Their not breaking the law cause some information on do not call list states they can call you. But there is such laws as harrassment if they persist in calling. And they say that they will take you off their list and they do not and they still keep calling you. That is what is so great about our country that we live in. You can actually bring charges against these people. Cause even if they are hiding behind a few printed words on a website there are laws that will bring them down and teach these telemarkers that they have to read all the fine print of the law before they go out and calling people like you and I. They figure that you do not know, or have knowledge where to go to report them. They think that they can walk all over you, and get away with it. And the people that they hire. They are calling you from another country that is on the other side of the world. That is one part that is that they keep calling you. enought said. The rest you can figure it out if you do your research in detail such as I did.

November 18th, 2006 Steve

These People Started calling 10:34 AM Saturday morning as soon as I went online. They are using a system that tells them that when you go online so they know when you you are at home on your company. Now what they fail to to notice is that they have fallen into a trap that can ID the suspects even when it says unvailable on the caller ID. Another device ID's the true caller and it is quite invisible to them. They can not detect the device inline device in use. It give a picture detailed information all about the person doing the calling. Even if they think their hiding behing caller ID block. ( Like a fingerprint if you would say).

November 16th, 2006 Fred

Is this a survey company, or are they "bouncing" international calls? I have heard of such ruses. Gee, wouldn't it be a tragedy of we were unknowingly facilitating terrorism in the U.S.? Perhaps the folks that run this site can forward the information gathered thus far to the FBI, etc, and see what comes of it. Food for thought. Also, comments from Jim, right on. Make sure your number IS listed on the DONOTCALL list. If it is, don't bitch anymore, contact DONOTCALL and report these people. Inaction=apathy=continued misery. Ciao!

"Political survey" read by an East-Indian sounding accent with marginal English. I asked the name of his employer, "American Society of Friends" -- which didn't jive with his opening line ("survey for national news agency"). Wish now I'd just hung up, wondering what they were really after.

Four years ago we got an extra phone number for our kids, so we wouldn't have to take messages for our kids when they weren't home. The extra phone numbers were free (hard to believe) and we forgot about them after we got our children their own cell phones. Well, yesterday we started hearing that odd-sounding ring again that reminded me it was a call to our children's number. It was a female surveyer from the 646-467-6665 number. She called twice yesterday (the second time was at 9:30 p.m. from a blocked number, but same voice). She called once tonight. All times I've told her we're absolutely not going to participate in their survey, but they keep calling back. Is one allowed to use profanity to a telemarketer?

November 1st, 2006 private

I got a call from this number 11/1/06 at 7 p.m. The woman was conducting some kind of consumer survey. I just spoke in a higher voice, said, "Wait for my mom," and put the call on hold for 10 minutes. She hung up.

October 23rd, 2006 Jim AGAIN HI

Since I got a new phone number that forwards to my cell I got two calls from Universal Survey (owner of this phone number) They are indeed a survey company and are EXTREMELY RUDE to people. WHY YOU MAY ASK ? Because they are simply allowed by law to call you. Don't believe me? Then read this from the National Do Not Call Registry at the government's website It says under the heading of

1. To file a complaint now, your phone number must have been on the registry for 31 days.

2. To file a complaint, we need the date you got the call, and either the name or telephone number of the company that called you.

*Reminder: Even if your number is registered, companies with which you do business may continue to call you. So may charities, political organizations, and telephone surveyors. Click Here for more information about the companies that may continue to call the numbers on the registry."

So the bottom line is that Universal Survey is allowed to call you. The best thing to do is follow the procedures I outline above.

October 22nd, 2006 Denise M MI

Once again the company called. When they said they were doing a survey, my hubby asked to speak to the manager and got the following info.
Universal Survey
Chris Clabo (manager)
29 W 38th Street
NY, NY 10018
They said they would now take us off the call list and appologized. We will see if this happens.

October 10th, 2006 Dr. Stu

I got this call a couple times, and now i know why. Last month some lady came by the house and paid me to take a survey. Then she took my phone number so her bosses could check up on her so they knew she actually paid me instead of pocketing the money.

October 10th, 2006 RC LA

I've been getting a couple of calls- didn't answer. Finally I answered today, they asked for my husband by name- I said he was unavailable, could I take a msg? they then asked if this number was his home? I said yes and then she said "OH! I am terribly sorry" and hung up.

October 6th, 2006 NI

See previous messages that tell you who to call, from JIM I think. They are Telcom customers and Telcom will contact them and advise them to not call you if you are on the do not call list.3
I have received calls from 646-354-2041
Saying they are doing a survey or they just hang up. If anyone has actally done the survey, I would like to know what they ask. Better yet I would like to give a bunch of bogus answers just for fun.

September 29th, 2006 jm

Called at 6:15 p.m. MST. When I saw the call was Unavailable (and from an area code that I do not have family or friends calling from), I just picked up the phone and hung it up. This has worked in the past and the calls have stopped with other telemarketers. I'll see if it happens this time.

September 28th, 2006 M.

Called numerous times asking for male head of household by name -- very rude. Want to do a survey regarding magazine/radio/television usage. Say they are from New York, when asked gave business name and number as listed by Jim below. Supervisor's name is Richard.

September 27th, 2006 Al MA

Getting calls from both their numbers despite twice asking to be removed from their list. Suddenly I am being plagued by calls from multiple survey companies from several different states. All the rest got the message and stopped calling except for these NY clowns. Time for the AG and BBB.

September 15th, 2006 Beep Germany

it turns out to be IRC health

September 14th, 2006 Jim UPDATE HI

Gee I didn't notice that someone had posted the company's name. Universal Survey. Turns out that they have a website. They also are listed in the New York online Yellow pages, but they are using a Yahoo email address. Their website doesn't provide an email address at all that I could find. If you go to and click on their News links on the right side you will then see a menu of links on the left of the news articles. If you click on the link called Links then you will see a list of various marketing agencies in New York and national agencies. Interestingly enough when I went to each of those links, NONE of them had Universal Survey listed as a member. Kind of fishy if you ask me. I wouldn't trust these guys. Frankly I can't help but wonder if their news stories are even true. Did they really do work for ABC, CNN etc??? I'd be careful talking to these guys what info you provide. The yellow pages list their company phone number as 212-391-5243. I provide this only as a way to contact them and ask them whatever you want. If you're wondering why the area codes are different it is because that area of New York was running out of phone numbers so they added the 646 area code. Google "area code 646" and you will see a story about it on It's been nearly 24 hours and I haven't heard a peep out of them. I guess Paetec Communications did what they had promised and now this Universal Company won't take a chance that I will report them and they will have to pay hefty fines.

September 14th, 2006 Jim CONTINUED HI

You also need to be sure that your number is registered on the Do Not Call Registry at If this company does not take your name off their list and calls you even once they are subject to FCC fines of up to $11,000 per violation. Funny how I was writing this and they called me AGAIN! I spoke with the lady and asked her to take my phone number off of her call list and she kindly agreed. So you might try that. They claimed to be doing a survey. I couldn't get around to asking what company they were or what surveys they were doing, but she claimed that she wasn't a telemarketer and therefore is not subject to the rules and regulations of the FCC's Do Not Call Registry, but I don't think that what she is saying is true. Be sure to read the Do Not Call Registry's notice on how long it takes for the Do Not Call Registry to take effect. The next time they call I will try to get the name of the company and their main phone number so that I can talk to their President and tell him what I really think of what they are doing. Yes, I have some choice words for them.

September 14th, 2006 Jim HI

Found out this 646-354-2041 AND 646-467-6665 does belong to a company that has numerous complaints against them. The TELCOM company that provides the phone number to the company that is calling you is called Paetec Communications. You can call them at 1-877-340-2600(toll free) and a most polite lady will send an email to the company who is using the above phone numbers and tell them that they need to take your phone number off of their call lists. Be sure to tell the nice lady that you are on the Do Not Call List so that she can put that into the email she sends the company calling you warning them that they face possible violations/fines.

September 11th, 2006 LS IN

September 6th, 2006 C.

I signed up for my local phone company's "call block" and tried to block their calls but they still get through.

September 6th, 2006 R.

They've call me twice daily every night for the past 2 weeks. The first time they called, I picked up and a lady started speaking in Spanish saying that they were conducting a survey. I couldn't understand much else because my Spanish isn't very good, so I just said "No, Gracias" and hung up. I thought that was the end of it, but they started calling me everyday. So whenever it rang I just picked up and hung up without saying anything. They continued to call. During the 2nd week of this, I picked up the phone (there was a delay as the call clicked forward to the person who picked up). This time a man came on the phone and explained in English that they were doing a survey. I told him I wasn't interested and to stop calling me. Another week has gone by and they're still calling every day. I sick of this!

Called the # and it said "you have reached a non-working number" so I just hung on to see what happens. I don't believe it's non working, but rather an answering machine that states that. Does anyone know who this is so I can really screw with them? Called me at 5:42pm EST on 8/24/06.

Said they were conducting a survey and asked if anyone spoke Spanish here. ??

Call #2 - claiming they were from "Universal Survey" - told them I was not interested in survey. Seems suspicious that a survey company would call me from a cell phone.

I believe this is a Debt Collection Agency. Independant Credit Research (ICR) From what I have learned they are pretty sinister in their tactics. Also may be related to Independant Consumer Research..Either way theya re up to no good
