Caller Id says NRA>I do not answer calls from people I don't know.According to the white pages the number is a cell phone number.
This is a harrasing scammer. BLock and report.
No message is left, no name is shown under caller ID. When called back the notice says that they are a fund raising company representing a non-profit company or political organization. They state that if you want your name removed from the auto dialer to enter it and you will be removed within 2 calendar days.
I recognized the voice. The man spoke several times to us today in Best Buy and again in the parking lot as we left with our purchase. I think he must have one of those readers to steal credit card info, but he has to put the pieces of the puzzle together with followup calls. I have no doubt the man who called from this Va. area code was in Ohio a few hours earlier. Also, do not program any account numbers in your cordless phones at home. Strangers can use your remote vm access and steal your info. This is organized crime.
call very later and the phone rang many times
This # keeps showing up on my caller ID several times a day,even on Sunday.I too like a lot of others thought it was the National Rifle Assoc.I don't pick up my phone when I see this #.My cable service offers a caller ID banner on my TV so I never have to look at my phone.Most telemarketers get paid on commission.So every time they call someone who doesn't respond they are wasting time which could be used on attempting to find a prospect which is a potential $ client.Therefore calling numerous non responsive people wastes a great deal of their time.Also non producers don't keep their jobs very long.
The one time I did answer when I saw "NRA" as the caller ID, there was silence on the other end. After about 10-15 seconds, I hung up.
They call a lot.

I found many ppl thinking it's only the NRA, but when calling this # back...it's a company that makes calls for many different organizations (NRA included) to get donations. I have entered my number in their do not call list, will see how that goes!!! They call about 6 times a day starting around 5pm til exactly 8:52pm every single day!!! Hanging up on them or screaming into the phone will not get rid of these ppl lol CALL THE NUMBER BACK, ENTER YOUR NUMBER INTO THEIR DO NOT CALL LIST! If that does not work, report them to the FCC, charity or not...it's harassment if they keep calling after being told not to!

Member three years ago (NRA) haven't renewed.
So, have been getting calls from this number for a while. NRA. We had a membership YEARS ago but choose not to contribute anymore. Regardless, they call daily and I never pick up. Took the advice of others here. Called the number back and requested to have my number removed from their call list (digitally). Amazed that it actually worked. That was 4 days ago and I haven't had a call since.

Caller ID shows NRA--they call at least 2-3 times a day for the past month. I don't pick up and they don't leave a message. How effective is the Do Not Call Registry!!!!
I've gotten several calls in the past few months from this NRA. It's not the National Rifle Assoc. which I am an actual member of but some charity fund raising bull shit. I called them back and put my # on their do not call list. We'll see how it goes.
This is not the National Riffle Association. I called the number and it is a political and charitable fund raising organization. If you stay on the line they give you an opportunity to put your number on their do not call list. I had blocked their number but was still recieving 10 calls a night...I put my number on their list and haven't rec'd another call.
This number has called my cell phone 2x day for the past week. There is no way to get off the do not call list ... they are a nuisance and need to be stopped.
Called several times over the last two weeks, one time i did answer i requested to be on the do not call list and I am still recieving calls..
Call back. You'll get an recording that explains you have been called for fund raising purposes. It allows you to register for no-call in the future.
Tell them "Is this a joke???....my husband was shot and killed by an intruder last year"....lol...
These people have called several days a week while I'm at work at will not speak to anyone but me. Therefore, they rudely hang up on my wife when they find out I'm not home. They hang up before she can tell them to take us off their call list.
these people call my number ar least 4 times a day and leave a message. They need to be turned into the fcc
This is a social engineering tactic, when they call-ask them to wait a minute, lay the phone down and walk away. It costs them $ to wait; so-cost them some money, that way we can all share in the joy of being annoyed.

reverse lookup says that this number is a cell phone..... SO here's my idea
text them back and let them know what you think about their trend of harrassing contributers (and whatever else you'd like to include LOL) and since it looks like they want money, support your local ACLU chapter instead.... they won't harrass you
They called and asked for my brother??? he has never lived here or used this number for anything (at least he better not have). They call all the time and hang up or if i don't answer they don't leave a message. I called 703-398-0839 back and entered my # for their do not call list. We will see what happens. I also told them they have the wrong number. I hate it when they call at 8:30. my husband wakes up at 3:30 am and soon we will have a lil baby here. I am trying to get people to stop calling before the baby comes.
Lately, we've been getting several calls a day from this number.
they just call and call and never leave a message
Rings 4 times, disconnects before answering machine picksup. Called at 7:00 PM, same time as other calls from NRA from 202-000-0000
I called the number back. It gives an option to unsubscribe to their list by entering your number. They then confirm that they will add you to their do not call list within 48 hours. I have tried it and we will see what happens
this POS has called 6 times in August. The first call I got this message, "Hey this is Jason, you paged me, give me a call back" -now they leave no messages. I filed a complain with the Federal Trade Commission. Sick of this kind of crap.

I am severely disabled and have tried getting my number removed to no avail.

According to the list of reports this number belongs to the NRA. Once I made the mistake of becoming a member but like ALL organizations(including POLITICAL PARTIES) once you send them money they NEVER STOP ASKING FOR MORE; the correspondence starts immediately after you send your initial contribution...they send letters wanting more; when you don't respond they send a new membership card and a statement that looks like a 'bill due'..... then they start calling..... I just screen my calls. You think you do a one time contribution but they see it as a lifetime commitment and want money every quarter (or perhaps even monthly if they think they can get it from you). I've learned my lesson but I am paying the price of continual annoyance (invasion of privacy).
Strategic Fundraising, they fundraise for political causes and non-for-profit organizations
- NRA (June 7,8,9,10 of 2008) I started getting these NRA calls after "Heather from Account Services" stopped calling. These individuals have called 4 times this week looking for "Mike". The past few times I've told them either to stop calling or that "Mike" was dead. Today when they called, we played along to see what the scam involved. They were seeking credit card info to update "Mikes" NRA membership. Also, they informed us that if we did so immediately, we'd get a new leather jacket. WOO HOO! On a positive note, I talked with my phone carrier who informed me that there was NOTHING they could do and I should have my number changed. Gotta love the service.
"Heather from Account Services" again.......
- Unknown Name (5-22-8) Picked up call just to see if it was Heather again. It was and she wanted to lower my credit card interest rate. I pressed 2 to be removed from her list......... Like that will do any good.
- Ft. Lauderdale FL (5-15-8) Didn't pick up I am tired of playing with them.
- Ft. Lauderdale FL (5-9-8) Credit card reduction rates
- Port Saint J FL (5-3-8) Credit Card Rate Reduction
- Microstar Software (4-30-8) Returning my call requesting a software update (not)
- Kansas City MO (4-17-8) Extend Car Warantee
- Miami FL (4-16-8) Credit Card Rate Reduction
- Moorestown NJ (4-3-8) Credit Card Rate Reduction

Rec'd many calls from this number. I do get calls from NRA 703-398-0839
that I also do not answer. Many times right after the NRA hangs up on my answering machine this number calls about a minute later. It's a good bet this is the NRA.
This time the man asked for my hubby and when i said can i take a message, he said, "just tell him the NRA called" and the he hung up. If i am on the DNC registry how can these people keep calling me. We have never done any business with them and they aren't a charity! They call every day!!
I am so sick of the NRA calling my house. I have asked them, begged them, pleaded with them to quit calling. They promise they will not call yet each month the wake me up again. Can someone not do soomething about this?!!!!
Yes having exactly same problem. Asking for husband by name and when i say no can i take message they hang up
A man asked for my husband by name and when i said who's calling they hung up...wth???
This is a company called Stategic something.. Trying to collect money from you... and they claim to be collecting for clarity. Yah right... Call them back and have your name removed.. One of the men are very rude and abrasive, he only wanted to talk to my husband. Sorry buddy...
i keep getting 'out of area' calls from this number 703-398-0839; sveral times a day. it has to be a telemarketer or somebody we don't want to get calls from.
Asked for me by name and then hung up
if someone can tell me why this person with the number 703-398-0839 keeps calling my number it would be greatly appreciated. i wish they would stop irritating us every day or so
