Message left on my cell. Most of message was not understandable. Sounded like she was in a fish bowl. Parts that were sort of clear were demanding that we go somewhere in the city where she would be for a few hours and being ID and sign some papers, but if we settled, send a stop order. Then she gave a name of the filer and this number. Then it sounded like she made a threat that she would come to our house. First of all, the phone she called is a buy minutes phone that I have had at least five years. The number is not published and only family and a few friends have the number. I have no debts, so either she had the wrong number or they are calling random numbers trying to scare people. I have also gotten debt collection calls for someone with a foreign name. My poor mother in law gets calls all the time demanding money that she doesn't owe. I can only guess that the scammers (thieves) are out in force.

You called asking to speak to the youngest male in the household. Your timing skewers your results when you call during basketball playoffs.
You called re Lannsing Michigan Potter Park. Potter Park is a "Quality of Life" asset that not only serves the people of the community but also helps bring new entities into the community.

As for theory - you have to find it yourself. As for practice - maybe I could give some help. I found an interesting program on one of the thematic forum recently. It searches for combination automatically. Nice one, though poor in interface.
Program is based on Martingale system with the corrected algorithm. It`s based on searching and waiting a series of results («red or black» usually). But this one I got is for «head or tail».
There were discussions «pro and against» this soft, but I downloaded it and explored for about half an hour and left it in automatic mode till morning. What I found in the morning was 250WM.
But use this soft wisely, admins in casinos do not welcome these things.

i work for this company... and yes we call you alot.

we are NOT covered by the federal DO NOT CALL law since this law is only for the TeleMarketing firms (those sales calls you usually get) and since WE at WesternWats are doing surveys and not making calls that asks money or donation... all your efforts of filing a complain would be worthless. So better take the surveys, and look at its bright side... You help companies make and do good products and services for you (demanding consumers) and even help the government figure out issues and create agenda to serve the nation well... YES!!! even the government pay us to call you!!!

Call them and speak to a live representative, they will remove your number (at least they did with mine). Leaving a voice message or emailing them does not work.

Never give your number out to Kinkos! I don't know where else pays this company to issue this type of "surveying", but obviously they do not respect anyone's privacy.

This is the worst form of spam for a business to receive. it takes away from actual business calls and wastes time STOP CALLING
Chris Downs

Like many of you, we have seen far too many calls from these guys.

The solution is very simple...http://westernwats.com is displaying the http://www.truste.org logo.

Since it obvious that westernwats.com is a scam company that does not respect do not call lists, or any one's right to privacy, or the fact that calling cell phones and toll free numbers costs the people that DO NOT want to hear from them. They are clearly in violation of the membership in the truste.org privacy based program.

That said, if all you folks do as we have done and file complaints with truste.org and the FTC and FCC, then soon, this company will be out of the game, and all of us will be able to enjoy the peace we deserve and stop paying to receive their unlawful calls.

Best wishes..

Western Wats called my mother. She said they called her and asked her who won the VP Debate. She told them Biden. And then they asked her if she knew that "Mark Udall voted against the 850 Billion dollar bailout?" Mark Udall is a Democratic Congressman who is running for Senate here. Westernwats is a data company contracted by the RNC. I can't really say for sure that this was a "push poll" or just information for the RNC. I found this info from another phone number blog www . whocallsus. com

for the third time I have received a call after 9:30....9:47 to be precise. I thought this was against the law......I answered the phone, for the third time, and as with the other two calls on other dates, they said absolutely nothing. If someone is paying this firm to do research, they are getting a con job. How do I get them to stop calling, especially at this time of night?????????????????

This number calls two to three times a day. I don't pick up because I know it's an unwelcome call. Our numbers are listed on DNC which, to us, means we don't want to be solicited for surveys or money from anyone. Following that, 877-795-2279 calls. That's "police" or "fireman" with their hands out.

received marketing call in NH, identified themselves as Target Consulting. *69 revealed this phone number. I called it back to complain as I am on the Do Not Call List, but that # just leads to machine msg of Western Wats research/marketing company -- you cannot reach a person. To get more information re: Target Consulting, or to complain, call 703-565-8505 (Target Consulting). The employee there (Trevor) told me they have hired Western Wats to do phone surveys, and received the phone list from the Republican National Committee, and must, if asked, let the person called know they have received support for the survey from the Republican Natl Cte. I was told since they received the registered voter phone list from the Republican Natl Committee they do not have to abide by the Do Not Call List. They have instructions how to opt out of their calls on the website westernwats.com
Report any push pulling or violations of the Do Not Call list. Let's keep this election clean!

A recorded message from Virgin Mobile reminding me to use the auto top-up option before my phone number expired.

The call came from a data collection company called Western Wats. www.westernwats.com. Under their "contact Us" tab is the following number: 801.373.7735 I called it and got the voice mail of a pleasant-sounding woman who instructed me to leave my number if I wished to be removed from their "internal" call list. I only left my number and requested I be removed.

I just recently switched phone carriers. I've never had a problem with solicitors before. All of a sudden I'm receiving calls from 801-623-4621 and 801-623-4631. The do not call list doesn't protect us from these annoying calls. I noticed that if you block one number they use a different one the next time.

I actually was dumb enough to take the survey. It is a REALLY long survey. I thought this was Comcast and I was hoping to get something for taking this dumb survery -- it's full of questions like "on a scale of 1-10 how was your Comcast install" and crap. On a scale of 1-10 these people get a shutup!

It is a survey company called Westernwats.com (yes, that's ONE t, not two).

They do surveys and apparently 'push pols' as they have a 'tagged on defensive statement' about push pols. They must have made the news back in November 07. They just sloppily tagged their denial of the practice right on their page.

I have no idea why they are calling me. Especially on a cell phone where I have to pay for the minutes.

Note: I did call the number back (it was a hang up because their computer apparently dialed me before they were ready to talk to me. So it just hung up when I answered too soon. Sorry to inconvenience you Western Wats!!!). After calling a couple times I did get a recorded message with the company name and an explanation of how convenient it was for me to talk back to companies through this survey and let them know what I think.

I'm not sure what company is calling, but here's my message. It's rule, if not illegal, to call my number and then have your computer terminate the call if you're not ready for me. You shouldn't call anyway, but if you do, you might keep in mind it is YOUR EMPLOYEE who should wait for me to answer teh phone.

Someday we'll get a public with the brains to kill some political fortuntes if the politicians don't get off their dead arses and put some laws in place to stop the machines from calling us.

Just a note for everyone who keeps complaining about being on the "do not call list" - you can complain all you want, but they are not breaking the law. The do not call list applies specifically to telemarketers who are SELLING something. These market research companies (Western Wats, BRG, etc.) do not fall into that category and so are not stopped. If you want them to stop calling you, just not answering won't be very effective. They'll just call back. If you want the calls to stop, I suggest politely answering the phone and asking to have your number added to their company's no-call list. Done and done. No more calls. And please, don't be rude. I once took a job at one of those places when I was desperate and couldn't get another job. Rude people suck. Just imagine being on the other end of the line.

I've called my cell phone provider after one of the additional lines on my cell phone account received a call from this number and have found out that this number is from Western Watts which is a surveying company for T-Mobile. I had recently added 3 new lines to my account and they were calling these lines possibly to see how the number's owner's experience was within the store, however they were not the ones who went to the store and got the line. I recommend that if you have recently changed your cell phone plan and they are calling you directly after, that you try calling your provider to see if perhaps this company is contracted by your provider.

When I get more than one call from the same number and I do not recognize the number. . .I answer my phone
"____(insert name here)____ Police Department, how can I assist you?" They will either hang up or they will ask for someone. That is when I start asking a lot of quick question, Who is Calling, what is the company name, what is the address, what is the phone number, name of the person I am talking to, etc. I then state that this line has been tapped due to an investigation for telephone harrassment and the information will be used for prosecution. It is amazing how quickly the calls stop.

Just a warning. . .I am not sure doing this is legal, but then again I figure: 1. These asshole companies do not have to follow the law, so why should I and 2. It is my phone, I pay for it and I can answer it anyway that I want!!

Hope this helps!!

Finally they picked up when I answered and started telling me how they were a marketing company. They had called earlier today and not picked up when I answered the phone. When they called, it woke my daughter. Anyway, I told them to never call here again and she was all "we're not selling you anything" and I told her not to call back. We'll see if she does.

Now, having revealed who is behind 801-623-4621 to -4631, we know that they're conducting legitimate surveys. No big deal.

But if they have really, really ticked you off, or if a CSR from Western Wats was rude to you on the phone, then call the office at 801-373-7735.

Personally, i don't mind legitimate surveys, but some people out there might want to stick it to 'em, usually to make up for some personality defect of their own. I don't recommend it, but if someone wanted to annoy them just as they were annoyed, then here's how to do it (for purely informational purposes only!)

The call center's address is listed in Part 2 of this message. Although the business office in Provo certainly has a mail-room, sending mail to the call center might gum-up the works enough to annoy someone. It only costs 41 cents.

Since you now know their office number, repeated calls to their switchboard would spread the secretarial staff thin, and make important calls go unanswered. Don't just call up and say "you sux" or something stupid like that. As long as you have a legitimate question to ask when you call, then you have every right to call them up, and will never stray into the gray area of harassment.
I See Them

...this is Part 3 of a larger message. The full message is at:
http://whocalled.us/lookup/801-623-4631

...By mail, use the address of the business office in Provo listed above:

Western Wats
290 West Center St.
Provo, UT 84601

By phone, call them at:

801-373-7735

I hope that helps to clear up the mystery of who is cluttering up your phone's caller log. Yes it is very annoying that they block their outgoing caller-ID, but that's not the fault of the poor young people working as phonejockeys. Don't take your frustration out on the people who call, because they're already frustrated themselves. If they had any career prospects right now, then they wouldn't be slaving away on the phones for a pittance over minimum-wage. Most are students who couldn't give a darn about what survey they are carrying out, and this type of work makes them develop a pretty thick skin, pretty quickly. They develop what I call "personality callouses" so any foul language you might hurl at them just washes right off (and your rant will likely be recorded anyway, so don't be a jerk!)

On a sidenote to Western Wats: why don't you change your outgoing caller-ID to say "survey" instead of "unavailable"? If I see "unavailable" on an unknown incoming call, there's just Zero Chance that I'm going to pick up. But if I see "survey" then I get the option to decide whether I'm not too busy to answer a few questions. I'm betting that you only get a few "hits" per 1,000 placed calls. If your caller-ID said "survey" then I'd bet that you'll double or triple your number of "hits".
I See Them

Now, as to who these callers actually are...

Western Wats has two locations in Provo, Utah (about 20 miles south of Salt Lake City):

290 West Center Street in Provo, UT 84601. At the corner of South 3rd Street West, two blocks east of Pioneer Park and two blocks west of University Avenue. This is the business office.

701 Timpanogos Parkway in Orem, UT 84097. Orem is on the northern outskirts of Provo, and Western Wats is at the corner of Timpanogos Parkway and Research Way, just across the railroad tracks from Orem Cemetery. This building is their call center.

Why don't they answer when you pick up? Because their automated dialing system calls a batch of numbers at once, and the first one to make a live connection is routed to one of their phonejockeys, and the rest of the calls are dropped. Yes, this is highly annoying, but it is the most efficient way (in their eyes) to get the maximum number of completed surveys per hour.

How can you get them to stop calling you? There are three ways. First, when you get a call from 801-623-4621 or -4622, -4623, etc. through -4631, you wait until a real person speaks, then just ask them (in your sweetest voice) to "please remove this number from the call list." If the phonejockey is not a complete a-hole, they will tap a few keys and remove your number.

The second way is to go online to their website. Just add ".com" to the company's name. On the website, there is a link to a page where you can enter your number and ask that they remove you from their call list.

Here's who is calling on this number. It is a survey company called Western Wats located in Utah. They use eleven phone numbers: 801-623-4621 through 801-623-4631. They do customer research on contract for many companies, notably for Kaiser medical, Time Warner Cable, and various banks. Also do research for the Democratic National Committee. In mid-2007 some who have received calls from this company are asked about "temporary" residents of their house, or are asked for a Spanish-speaker in the household... which indicates that they are trying to reach undocumented aliens for a survey, although who would pay for a survey like that is anybody's guess.

Western Wats is not required to respect the National Do-Not-Call List, because they are conducting legitimate customer research surveys on behalf of their contractees. If you have an account at a bank which then hires WW, then they have every right to call you and ask how the service from the bank has been. If you have communications service from Time Warner, then WW has every right to call you on TW's behalf and ask how your service has been. If you are an American citizen, then WW has every right to call you on behalf of the Democratic National Committee to ask you what you think about politics.

Dial tone when I answered. I think they hung up because I let it ring so long before I picked up to answer. I only answered because I thought it was my Utah customer calling me.

Also on the DNC list, received a call tonight from 801-623-4621,with no response from the caller. Could this be construed as a blatant form of telephone terrorism? Hello...Homeland Security?
