We have a relative dying of cancer, and must have the phone on. Imagine my anger when these idiots called at 9:14 p.m. My husband answered the phone and they hung up. Time to block them, just so frustrated and angry right now.
"Kalamata Research" sounds like an olive growers consortium.
Called here several times; finally had to block this caller:
07/19/2014 - 2:19pm
07/19/2014 - 11:17am
07/18/2014 - 12:24pm
07/18/2014 - 10:16am
I refuse to answer the phone from someone called TOLL FREE CALL.
Called on a weeknight at 9:07pm (answering machine -> hang up) but it's illegal to call after 9:00 pm.
I called it back and the recording said is a company that does political marketing research. They were calling on a Sunday, which makes it worse!
Starting calling a week ago. sveral times a day and at all hours!!!! Fed up
Called us today 01'17'2014 didn't answer tired of fricking Survey calls about my views on POLITICS its NUNJA BIZNESS anyway. You want my opinion.. pay me for it!!
They called me 9:29 PM 2013-09-10

Called 3 times and hung up on my message machine. I called them back and got a recording about a political survey. So annoying! Solicitation by phone and knocking on the door should be outlawed! Find a REAL job.
This number has called me many times for awhile now at all hours. I have asked them to not call me anymore yet they still call. When I don't answer no voicemail is ever left. I have been told it was a debt collection, a political poll, and I had won a vacation IF I buy something. Sounds to me like one big scam. Only way I am to stop the calls is to block them.
I have been receiving 2 to 4 calls from this number EVERY DAY for the last week. I am on the do not call list. This is not okay.
They have called 4-6 times everyday/night and never say a thing for 6 days straight SO FAR!!! Had enough so I called the number and it was a recording telling me that it does not qualify for "do not call" program. So I sent a text to the number asking them to stop calling, now I have received numerous spam texts and phone calls from 469-464-9384 if I do not answer the calls from the 800-644-9064
. Not sure what to do anymore!!!
called here and didn't say anything.They keep changing their numbers.
no answer, they called twice, I am on the do not call list, annoying
Called 10:38AM, no one said anything!!!
"Resident47" must be one of those telemarketing assholes, the way he sticks up for them. Hey, moron, stick your opinion where the sun doesn't shine! Better yet, leave us your phone number so we can make sure you get all the calls we do!
These idiots called five times on Sunday and started again yesterday. No messages left and no one ever on the other end when I did answer. I called the number back and (insert sarcasm) was I surprised to find out it was a a political research poll. Of course it was stated on a recording and the recording did say that when they called AGAIN just tell the person to remove our phone number from their call list. Yeah like that ever works. It was much easier to call bloke them!!
First of all most of those places have a random digit dialer which means if you hang up or dont answer they will call back some other time of the day till you either A.take the survey. or B.ask to be put on the do not call list.
**Survey people are exempt from the do not call list because they do not sell anything. so you have to ask to be on the do not call list.**
nearly 8pm at night from an 800 number? Oh, please! Like i really think its really for me.... some dumbass solicitor trying to ge t me to care. bah! bug off. i never answer it unless i know the number, if they cant leave a message then they arent looking for me.
The reason a large portion of the people are having trouble with this number is because this number is being "Spoofed" by Delta Outsource Group, a collection agency located in O'Fallon, MO. They will try and gather enough information to create an account. Many bank accounts have been drained by this establishment and many "Spoofed" phone numbers have been fraudulently used to aquire information.
This not only hurts people by the harrassment, but also hurts the establishment that the number belongs to.
Note: Insight Services is affiliated with Delta Outsource Group.
Phone Fraud Aug 24th, 2012
A man who said his name was James and he was with Calimar(sp?) Research. I said no thanks and hung up. Did not let him finish his line. This was on Sunday, for Pete's sake!! They never let up!!
call said they were with citibank? asking to send payment on line. my payment wasnt due for two more weeks. maybe scam
I answered the call at 9:21pm (evening) and said "Hello". No one answered. Thanks for wasting my time.
A voice said, "It is thundering and lightning, do you want to take a walk?" After that, they hung up.
Another in a never ending series of "research" calls I'm being bombarded with. The "Do Not Call" rules gives such annoyances an exception - although that is entirely irrelevant since "donotcall" is clearly a placebo button designed to fool people into assuming that the government gives the slightest damn about them and their concerns.
seems to leave a call everyday.
Aggrivated: Please cite the state or federal statute which makes every category of nonpersonal phone call illegal within the twelve hours you've noted. Should you have difficulty, please be advised that both the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and the Telephone Consumer Protection Act allow a daily 13 hour call window beginning at 08:00 in your time zone. Only your state law or a notice to your caller revoking call permission might overcome this. The two acts apply respectively to debt collectors and telemarketers. Fundraising and political calls have no imposed calling hours, but those call centers tend to observe the limits stated in FDCPA and TCPA.
When you're finished with legal research, please point us to the dictionary in which the word ''aggravate'' has the letter 'i'. If someone after five months of reports would finally try to identify the caller, then we might actually work toward solutions.

No message, no nothing. Who the hell are these people, and what do they want? I think the world would be a better place if we went back to smoke signals.
3 or 4 calls a day, never a message or any one there, for days.

Called 3 times now, nobody on the other end. I suspect it's a robo-call. Since its an 800-number, ive been calling it about 100 times now to get their recording. They're paying for the call, so fuck them
Asked for my husband- I asked who this was- and they hung up.
