DF King & Co., Inc. Telephone Script Fidelity Investments - SEC
That is a link to the script they are supposed to read from, looks like theyve been doing this since 2004.
If you want them to stop calling you tell them you want to abstain from voting.
In addition to phonecalls, you probably have a stack of Fidelity letters that pile up at your house, like mine. If you open one, you'll see that Fidelity has hired this group to call shareholders because not enough shareholders have voted on the proposals. The mailing has information about where to find the proposal information and you can vote online. For those that don't want to vote for or against, just log in and vote "abstain" for the two proposals. They'll continue to call and send you mail until you vote, or until they get enough votes for a quorum, so best to just give Fidelity your votes. It takes 5 minutes to do, and you'll save yourself from the calls moving forward.
I get one or more calls from D King every day. I finally answered and told him to take my name of his list. I was a little grumpy and he said he was sorry and he would take us off his list. We shall see!

Caller ID says King D. I get a call every night at dinnertime. I'm getting rid of my landline thanks to this annoyance.

Calls me every day almost - I never answer. Glad to hear it's not really legit.
Calls several times a day from 7 in the morning till 10:30 at night and they never leave a message. And my caller ID state caller is a D. King since we do not know a D. King we do not answer the phone. But this D. King is getting to be a real pain in the butt

Call every other day usually after I have gone to bed around 10:30pm. No message. It is an outrageous invasion of privacy and an unacceptable nuisance.

Call every other day. Do not leave a message so I don't reply. ID say's King D Have filed complaints with the Do Not Call site.
They call me twice daily and never leave a message. I finally answered the call so I could tell them to stop calling. I said hello 4 times but no one was there. I doubt it's fidelity because I don't have any accounts with them. It has to be a scam. I wish it would stop, it's annoying.

I'm getting calls from this same number at least once a day, so I just went online to see who these people are. Useless it seems. If I answer the phone no one is there. Useless like I said.
Left 7 minutes of "air" on my voicemail...
My 401K is administered by Fidelity, so they can use that to get around the DO-NOT-CALL list. I find it interesting that these morons think it's a good business strategy to harass customers THEY ALREADY HAVE with junk calls. With friends like these, who needs enemies, right?

Keeps calling never leave message. Real pain. Seems to be calling from NY. How does one get calling to stop?
Got a call from this number claiming to be "Card Services" and said they could get my credit card interest rate reduced. When I asked who they were, they said they were "Card Services" and couldn't tell me any more until I was "pre-approved". I asked more questions, and they said they were calling from Long Island. I asked more questions, and they hung up.
This seems like a scam to collect credit card numbers, but if they were I would think they would make up better lies. But it seems almost certainly to be a scam of some sort. (Actually, the first call was from a blocked number, but as I asked for information they agreed to call from an unblocked number, which was 718-559-4093. Of course, they could have faked that too.
Has called several times. I have recorded dates and times of calls. Advised them today
that this phone is listed with Do Not Call Registry and asked that they not call again.
If they continue, I will report it to the attorney general in the state of New York.
That's about the only way to insure that these people stop their harassment.
It said Fideliy on the Caller ID. I answered. Nobody there then it started to ring 4 or 5 times. THen there was air. I'd love to know why they called at 10:30 in the morning
Kept calling, never left msg. One time I decided to answer. They are a legit company hired by Fidelity to see why you didn't send in your proxy vote for an investment plan (you know, those things you get in the mail with all the literature that you don't have time to read). I called Fidelity today to confirm that they are legit and indeed, they are. So, if you have a savings/retirment plan on your own or through work (mine is through work) that is run by Fidelity, that is why they are calling. Still don't understand why they wouldn't leave a message. My husband has an account with Fidelity also so we get double the calls. I just asked them when I answered the phone if they could take me off the list. I don't know if it works or not because we still get calls (though probably could be for husband's account).
Calls every other day, sometimes twice a day, never leaves a message - PAIN IN THE REAR!
has called 3 times this week and has never left a message
Once yesterday and two times today. Never left a message.
According to a proxy booklet from Fidelity:
"D.F. King is a third party proxy vendor that
Fidelity hires to call shareholders [...] who have
not yet voted their shares".
Called. No caller ID no message on machine. I blocked call via my internet phone service (VOIP.COM)
Sick of them calling. Will inform the FCC.
They did not leave a message.
2nd call from this number in a week. no message
