Called @ 2:29, 2:05, 1:16, & 12:47. Geez
THIS PHONE NUMBER KEEPS CALLING AND CALLING. I ASK THEM TO STOP. THEY ASK ME FOR ANOTHER COMPANY NAME.
Called left message saying they were the CDC and Oregon Department of Health gave me a 888-920-4962
Called number and asked why they are working so late and asked them how they got my number. He then took my number to add to their do not call list.
They called at 841pm
The lady who called said they were gathering information about a hail storm that happened near us. She said it would only take a minute. I told her I do not answer questions over the phone and hung up. First of all, I don't know of any hail storm in our area and if there was, I don't understand why this would have anything to do with me. These people are annoying.
sounded like a 'butt dial' to my unlisted work telephone number on a Sunday. Bizarre.
Called twice and left blank voice mails twice.
Morons called an unlisted, public safety agency (emergency operations)cell phone. Unfortunately, DNC regs exempt organizations conducting "surveys". But that doesn't exempt them from being ignorant, annoying assholes.
Called 2/25/14 no message left
Called 2/28/14 hung up when I answered

kiss my asp Aug 24th, 2013
offered 15 bucks to take poll no thanks I like my pole
Claims to be from CDC in Virginia
Some stupid pain in the ass.
They called, 7:30 pm. Lots of mumbling noise. Asked to not call again. They called 10 minutes later. Noise on background. I said nothing, they hung up after 10 seconds. They called again 2 minutes later.
I have no idea who this is. They called, got our answering machine and I heard the hang up as if it were a live person, not a machine.
Got a call about 5 minutes ago. Girl said she was from some political polling organization. I asked her who is paying for the poll, and she replied in all seriousness, "oh, the poll is free." I said, no, who is paying your firm to take this poll, to which she replied... wait for it... "I don't know." I told her that she should never call my number again and hung up.

I am on the no call list. Why do these folks think they can call me?????
The unwanted calls has become just numerous and out of control, I really think the phone companies have something to do with it so everyone sign up for unlimited call plans.
They started calling two weeks ago in the evening. Only dead air when I answered the first time. Now I decline the call. What a pain.
They are calling my cell phone even though I signed up for do not call...they called me today at 7:21 EST and 2 days ago...I called the number and it is Issues and answers...research center for opinions. Still I do not want them to call my cell and I do not know where they got the number. Seriously, I want to file a complaint!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Called around 8:30 p.m. I don't know anyone in Virginia so I didn't pickup. Will file report with FTC (see below) and suggest others do the same, especially if they are on the DoNotCall Registry like myself. Form is very short and quick.
Left creepy voicemail with really heavy breathing for 13 seconds... DID I MENTION CREEPY!!! I called the number back after reading these comments and it said it was the Issues and Answers network and we did recently finish a claim with Allstate... I might call Allstate and tell them that these people are very unprofessional.
I am on the do not call registry and still keep getting
calls from this number!!!
This number has called incessantly for the last two weeks. All hours of the day, and late into the evening. Never leaves a message, but lets the phone ring 20+ times before giving up.
they called my cell but didnt leave a message???
4 calls to my cell phone in 2 days. Never leaves a message.
Tom, ''the whole idea'' of the federal DNC registry was to help us control sales callers. It's been a great success in this house and many others I know. If you'd like to go back to chasing down every compliant sales caller with your no-call demands, go ahead and drop your registration.
You were never promised relief from every single call which you personally don't want. ''The Feds'' are not about to waste their time on DNC complaints regarding calls *WHICH ARE EXEMPT* from the Telemarketing Sales Rule. As to what you ''understand'' of the rules, surveyors are not held by federal law to the thirteen hour daily calling window imposed on sales and debt collection calls. The more polite firms observe similar hours, and only your state law might say any different.
Q&A: The National Do Not Call Registry
Resident47 Aug 10th, 2012
you have to fill out the form in the National registry DNC list.they need a time and date this all happened.You,need to do your part ,to get these dirt bags off the streets.
After a couple hours of trying I finally got through to 1-800-234-7783
to tell Issues and Answers Network Inc. to take me off of their calling list. A live human came on and switched me to a person that could remove me. Of course that person wasn't available so I left my name and number and told them to remove me from their list. I'll probably be making another post when they call again.
The call came at 9:39 p.m. local time. As I understand it, it has been illegal to call after 9:00p.m. local time before no call lists started. What good are NO CALL lists when there are so many exemptions from them? The whole idea is that we don't want to be bothered by people we don't know regardless of why they are calling. The Feds never even acknowledge that they have looked into our complaints let alone taken any action. At least the state of Missouri usually sends you a letter in a few months tellin you the action or lack of ability to take action that they have pursued.
They don't leave messages
For any # I don't recognize, or that comes up "private caller" or "unknown", I answer by saying; "_____ (my town) Police Department". BOY! does THAT get rid of calls like this in a hurry!!
(We're a small Township with no local P.D., so I can get away with it.)
Steve Dogan Jun 22nd, 2012
Called 3 times in 52 minutes; 4 times total in 2 hrs. Callback yielded message that they are Issues & Answers, a survey firm, and telling me I could call their PR liaison at 1-800-234-7783
. I was put onto someone's voice mail to leave my name & number to be taken off their call list. We'll see! This is only going to get worse between now and November. Politicians wrote the do not call laws to exempt themselves. My only hope is that these people are smart enough to know it's a waste of time asking opinions of someone who is already enraged against you, and will actually delete my numbers.
I called the number back, and I got a recording thanking me for calling Issues and Answers. The recording said that if they had called me, they were interested in my opinions on some marketing something or other. I hung up before the recording finished. I just read the comment from Nathan, and if he is correct, it would have been a legitimate call. We have recently filed a claim with Allstate, and they did say they might follow up with a customer service survey.
1-16-2012, received a call at 9pm. Called this number back and got a recording, Company is Issues and Answers, trying to conduct a survey. Said if you have issues or if they have bothered you to call their corporate office at 1-800-234-7783
and ask for their public relations liaison. Presumably you can have your number removed from their list. I will try it tomorrow and see.
Called at 8:04 pm and hung up when the voice mail picked up. Caller ID said Norfolk, VA. We don't know anyone from there.
Sounds like something the f'___ing DNC would do.
Issues and Answers was hired by Allstate Insurance to do Quality Control surveys for their adjusters. They called to ask how the service was following a recent claim that I filed. It was a legit call that I was expecting, although I didn't expect the outfit to be called Issues and Answers, so at first I thought it was bogus. After listening to them, they clearly had info from Allstate about me and my claim, and they only asked legit questions about how the adjuster performed his job. So, in some cases, at least, they are legit. There was a long pause at the beginning of the call, though, and I almost hung up.
this number called 7-25-2011
Called on Sunday afternoon. Just jumbled noise in the background on the answering machine. I live in virginia.
Called my KY cell phone while traveling in AZ. Doesn't match the Oregon Health Dept. pattern.
I do not answer calls that I do not know who the number is. Hence it is a lost cause for them because I laugh evertime they call. I've been tempted to return their call late at night (between 2am and 3am) to ask them what they wanted. The temptation is getting harder to resist.
Received call from this number, heard background noise, I said hello and the party hung up.
Then I sugggest that anybody that has access to this number. Share her number with us and we can bombard her with phone calls. Say are from the department of
Please do not call unless I ask you to delete me from your list
Called at 10 am but did not leave message.
Reported as a DNC list violation.
Hangs up as soon as answering maching comes on.
don`t want this # calling
This IS the American Diabetes Association. It is non-stop endless calls daily on multiple numbers: 301-223-0109; 410-202-0108
. They are becoming an annoying group. I have supported them in the past and have an ADA membership but no more. I'm fed up with this type of solicitating. (see comments from Fed Up below, same as mine!!).
I have a "Do Not Call" number. Why are you calling a blocked number?
Rec'd call 3/7/11 asked Q/I questions about allstate. I answered NO to about 5 questions caller hung up. Caller was a female who sounded like she had a cold, alot of background noise.
Rang my cell phone. Call went to voice mail. They must have put the call on hold because there were three minutes of a hold beep. No message. My cell phone is not "published." Quite an annoyance.
Chicago Ed Mar 02nd, 2011
Called 3 times last night-after 9 PM-two "messages" were just beeps the third had a mans voice who started speaking before the recorder started but he said he will be calling me back. Not if I can help it....
Called numerous times. Stated calling for oregon health dept. I called the Oregon health dept. They are doing a survey. Silly to have it from an out of state survey group. I told them so.
Recevied a call from this Norfolk, VA Number. By process of deduciton, we believe the call to be associated with Identity theft from a Chinese women who resides in the Norfolk area and along with her associates conducts identity thieft. Earlier she and her Chinese associates hacked into our email account, when we recovered the email, then she tried to elicit our password from the account using a recognizable email address that we could trace, also she created a false myspace page in China with our name. We have documentation on this. We were hoping the Norfolk police would do something about this harassing and nusiance calls. We tried to talk with Nationline who distributes the number, but they were unwilling to help.
I keep getting calls from this number and they won't stop.
I have gotten 10 calls from them in just a few days.
They call me several times a day too.
No message, sometimes it's a real person, but sometimes it's an automated call.
I'm like Glenn Below Got a call from this number and 757-769-7127
No one left a message. (So I blocked both numbers from calling me. Aw the Beauty of VOIP, Block anyone you want.)
JustLikeGlenn Feb 17th, 2011
I get calls from this number several times a day. They never leave a message when I don't pick up. I'm really getting tired of them.
Got this call on a weekend to my cell phone, and like many others, am on the Do Not Call list. No message left. This is getting really annoying, I've got several calls like this, not necessarily from the same people, but when I look up the number, I'm always directed to these sites. I wonder who's been selling my cell number.
I receive a call from this phone number that just does beeps over and over for about 5 minutes on the message machine. This is about the 20 + time they have called. Nobody responds if you try to talk to them for me.
Received two calls from this number but did not answer. How do you get the number blocked??
I am getting sick and tired of getting many phone calls on my cell phone from 757-769-7127. My phone is registered with the do not call registry but somehow they are getting through anyhow. They never leave a message but call in the late evening. Annoying!!!
called everyday for the past 5 days, last wednesday they called four times. I screen all my calls, they never left a message which I think is very rude. I was beginning to think I had a stalker, and was getting a little spooked with the last couple of calls. I was concerned enough to start searching the internet for a reverse directory then just entered the phone # and searched and found this site. Next time they call I am going to pick it up and give them 'some answers" they may not want to hear lol!
I live in OR and am tempted to call and complain to this person mentioned by OREGON Resident:
Any questions or information call Renee Boyd 971-673-1145
Public Health Division Portland,OR.
Got 2 calls around 7 pm on my cell. No message left. Don't know anybody in VA. I blocked number thru Verizon spam filter.
caller identified himself as a health care survey for our state. after way too many questions, much of them ones no one should answer, the topic turned to tobacco. I think this so-called survey is a ruse for the tobacco industry to direct their marketing
about a dozen calls in the last 3 weeks. i'm ignoring, but am getting pretty tired of this..............
Answered the phone. No one on line, a couple of clicks and then hung up.
I'm annoyed becauseI keep getting calls from this number and I'm on the Do Not Call list like others have posted here. If what people say is true that it's a survey then that's the issue because they may be exempt from the do not call list. I this listed on https://www.donotcall.gov/faq/faqbusiness.aspx#ExemptOrg
"Exempt Organizations include charities or certain non-profit organizations, organizations engaged in political solicitations or surveys, or Sellers or Telemarketers that call ONLY consumers with whom they have an established business relationship or from whom they have obtained the express written agreement to call."
So apparently do not call list is only for telemarketers that want to sell you something and if you do not already have a relationship with them (e.g. you bought something from them before or you agreed to let them contact you ... watch what you sign online or on paper).
Probably some political BS
Called and was extremely rude when I told them I don't want to participate in anything they had to offer. They kept me on the phone for quite some time.
Answered the phone. No one on line, a couple of clicks and then hung up.
This # called our home 2X within a 10-15 minute timeframe. Left no message. I did not pick up. We are on the do not call list and do not have any friends or relatives in VA.
Issues & Answers Marketing Survey. Got answering maching
I received 2 calls from this number (757-769-7127) One at 6:52 PM and one at 7:19 PM. First one was unanswered so answering machine would pick up, but unknown caller left no message. On 2nd call, wife answered after 2 rings, but after saying hello, no one answered or said anything. I am on every no call/no mail known but still continue receiving these calls from various people/organizations. Believe this one to be a telemarketer or someone conducting a survey, which I don't do. If I receive one more from this number, it will be reported to the state attorney general's office for appropriate action.
Called my cellular, I didn't answer, and s/he didn't leave a message.
some sort of market research firm. They called after 9pm. I told them as much, and that I didn't appreciate it. She apologized, and I hung up.
Issues and Answers, consumer survey's.
Called my home phone, was doing a survey on # of visits to downtown Norfolk VA. it was not apparent that it was a telemarketer, so i answered the phone. The person doing the survey was incredibly polite.
Called my cell phone every within every 48 hours, never leave the message. I called back the number and machine answering saying that they are with Global Market Research Network doing survey and to call 800-234-7783
. I think everyone should be avoid with this numbers and contact FCC for more information.
Called my cell 3 times within 10 min. No msg left
Issues & Answers Network, a Global company attempting to contact "you", is the outgoing announcement.
I answered but didn't say anything. After about 5 seconds they hung up.
Called twice but never left a message
I've received multiple calls on my cell from this number. Never leaves a message! I won't answer because I don't know who it is!
This number called our house and said she worked the Oregon Department of Health and...I don't remember the rest. She asked how many adults lived in the house. She wanted to interview my husband who said he was not interested. She wished me a good evening and hung up. I wondered what a person in the 757 area code was doing representing themselves as working for the State of Oregon.
Has called repeatedly and has not left a message
Have called my work cell phone 4 times in 48 hours. No voicemail. Really annoying!
