Read what was stated Brett Westernwats dickhead, "It does absolutely nothing to prevent continuous annoying calls from jerks who could care less." Any individual, company, organization, whatever, that believes it has a right to unilaterally and at will impose on someone's time, invade their privacy, ring their phone, etc. is flat out a jerk, or worse.

It does not matter if your on the do not call list! Surveys, charities, and political, and people not selling you anything can call all they want get your facts straight or shut up!

When you get dead air is when the auto dialer is connecting to you and if you wait for a response someone will answer its not some conspiracy to find out when your home, its computer lag! If you don't know what your talking about you should not talk! The more times you open your mouth the more opportunities you have of putting your foot in it!

Western Wats is the largest survey company in the united states and all the surveys are confidential to both parties! Big companies, political groups and market research firms hire them to get important public views! Most of the employees are college students trying to make ends meet so if you care at all about other peoples lives and not just your own you will take the time to answer the 5-15 min. survey and help them and their family make a living, not waste their time and cost the pay raises! Being a human being is not too hard!

These rat bastards just won't quit, every other day they call. The phone company could easily put an end to shithead callers but it makes too much money off of fraud phone callers, scammers, con artists, etc. They all use a phone. The "Do Not Call" list is a farce. It does absolutely nothing to prevent annoying calls from jerks who could care less.
Have received multiple calls...two rings...then dead line. Obviously 'autodialer' and they respond to the first call and leave the others in the dust. DO NOT ANSWER! They don't treat OUR time serious...and I don't respect their techniques.

Third call I have received from this number in the past 2 days. I answered this time and only heard a beeping sound. The previous times no VM was left.
I am so tired of coming home to these odd ball phone calls. 4 or 5 calls in a day. I ignore these calls. I do not believe I should have to opt out from receiving survey calls. My fear is that they would take my number and distribute it further. (if they haven't done so already) I did not give my number to anyone saying I was open to surveys. I don't get it!
I get calls from this number almost every day. I never pick up because there is no one in Provo, Utah that I do business with. It's annoying and they don't give up. They never leave a message.
Called me @ 5:45 PM, asked if my name was *************. Yes, I reply, he then states his name is Warren calling from Western Watts about Suntrust base pay, then hung up. CalllerID # was 801-623-4627
Should you receive a telephone call from: 301-595-3840
, 804 952 9988, 757 512 5888, 866 660 3488, 866 660 3497, and or 801 623 4631

Called 3 times between 7 and 8 PM and wouldn't leave a message.
Going up on there website i foun that they are a data collection firm, i called up 7 there is an ext. to leave a message to remove your no. from the calling list and thats what i did, lets hope for results...
This keeps calling - about 4 times a day to Virginia.
They called every evening for 4 days and I finally picked up and it was a lady who said she was calling on behalf of Kaiser Permanente and wanted to ask me a few questions regarding my recent medical plan with Kaiser. Then she just asked me two questions 1)are you currently enrolled in a deductible HMO plan with Kaiser 2)have you ever been enrolled in a deductible HMO plan with Kaiser... then she said thanks for your time, and hung up..
They have been calling me night after night for days. I tell them to stop calling and they don't! Caller ID said Western Wats--number is 801-623-4627
--so maybe they changed the number, The phone company said I can dial *60 and then the number and it will block the calls from that number. Whoe are these people??? What are they really doing??? I am going to report this to the Attorney Generals office of NC.
...this is Part 3 of a larger message. The full message is at:
...By mail, use the address of the business office in Provo listed above:
290 West Center St.
Provo, UT 84601
By phone, call them at:
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 Sep 25th, 2007
Haven't answered calls from this (and another similar) number, but they have been calling quite often, 3-4 times in a single day a few days ago.
A call from 801-623-4627 came in:
9/21 @ 6:69 pm
9/22 @ 11:40 am
9/22 @ 1:02 pm
Caller ID says Unknown Name.
When I answered the phone (9/21) they hung up on me.
If you have Digital Voice with Comcast, you can screen those numbers. The information is here: http://www.comcast.com/customers/faq/FaqDetails.ashx?Id=3149
They called at 8:30PM I am a cancer patient and I told them to get the F off my phone.
call came on 9/18/07. looked up number, said came from Utah. Called back and it was westerwatts survey firm. I called and told them to take me off their list. 1-801-373-7735
. hope it works
No message left. Number was just on my caller ID, with the ID of "Cellular Call."

I was not home and a msg was not left, but to Mr. "Enough Already" -- is this a way to do business? Whatever your callers are doing, saying or dialing is obviously a great negative. I think some training should be done or at least have a meeting and bring up this very webpage. Come on!
If you prefer not to be contacted, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to be placed on our internal no-contact list. For clarity, the federal do not call list prevents telemarketers from calling registered phone numbers. Western Wats is not a telemarketing firm. The purpose of our telephone calls is not to sell but instead collect your opinions.
Enough Already Sep 01st, 2007
They call 4 or 5 times a day.... sometimes less than an hour apart. It is Western Watts. You can call their # back to be removed from their list, but the recording says 2 weeks. I blocked them on my VOIP filtering and they get a recording from my # saying their call won't be accepted. My phone doesn't ring and they cannot leave voicemail. They were so annoying!!!!
These turkeys have called 3 times today.
Sounds like another scam from Utah.
Call first occured at 11:30 AM, I ignored it. Another at 1:45PM, and as soon as I answered, they hung up.
This number has called a couple times on my home number and cell phone. I just got my home phone hooked up 2 weeks ago and I don't even give it out because I don't have it memorized yet. But I did notice some of you said National City Bank and I just opened up a new account there last week.
call the VP and listen to his stupid voice mail. This guy sounds like a jerk that would run a telemarketing company.

I'm guessing it's a call center for National City Bank. The callers must look busy. If they find a number where no one answers, they'll keep calling it so they look busy, but then really don't have to talk to anyone ... or hear us give them crap for calling us. They're just trying to earn some money, so can't really blame the caller/messenger. They probably have a choice of doing that or living under an overpass in a cardboard box. Given that choice, what would you do? I don't like it, but that's what I have caller ID and voice mail for.

this number is on the do not call list. DO NOT CALL IT AGAIN

What's the sense of registering your number on the Do Not Call registry if they are going to still call you...and even better they call and don't say anything - always at dinner time. I'd rather be interrupted by someone speaking when they don't speak you end up muting your TV show thinking you can't hear them and there is NO BODY there.

i think i'll give him a call in the middle of the night.. every night.. for the next couple weeks or so.
Research company calling at almost 9pm at night wanting to ask me questions regarding my satisfaction with my banking facility. I told them I wasn not interested.
I get 2 calls per day from this number. It says cellular call. I live in Indiana. I'm heading to the website listed here to get my name removed.
Call came in, caller id was just the number. Caller said "May I please speak to (pause) " at which point the call ended.
picked up cell phone and got dead air
Left a 4 second message of nonuadible voices and tapping sound
called once, no one spoke. called again about 90 minutes later, no one spoke.
I received a call on my cell phone, no one said anything, I didn't hear anything, then I hung up. No oil change.
Survey Group .. They called me today and I called them back. I got a message asking that I go to their website and fill out surveys.
I recieved a call from this phone number today and never picked up. When I tried to call back it wouldn't dial.
We have gotten several calls from this and 801-623-4631
. They have left messages saying they represented National City Bank. National City has no offices in Utah. This sounds like a scam outfit. Have never answered or called them back but I did report the incidents to National City.
2 calls 5/22 and 5/23.
First was unknown second showed cellular call...Called back and some guy sounded like he was in the bar...claimes I have wrong number...WHO KNOWS?!?

This a market research company calling in regards to a survey
Call came to Waco, TX. Was on call-waiting caller-ID. No way for them to leave message since I don't have VM. Have seen this number on my CID NUMEROUS times.
Got a call on 4/27/07 on my business number, answered it...there was no noise or voice on the other end.
Better Business Bureau (www.bbb.org) Go onto the site and file a complaint against this company, Western Wats. They also call under the number 801-623-4627
. I'm on the do not call registry as well and after stating so, they still call back. If you are on the DNC list, file a complaint with them as well as the BBB.
4 times in 3 days. First they ask some lame questions about our electric. Now they just call and hang up. 1-801-623-4628 (4626, 4627, 4629, 4630)
These stupid people called me 3 times in 2 days. I didn't answer and when I called the number back it gave a website. It's just a stupid survey company called WesternWats.
Answered call, party said nothing.

I did not answer, they did not leave vm.
I have received several calls from this number as well as similiar numbers 801-623-4626
). They don't leave a message.
Follow-up to my 12-01-2006 post, I followed the opt-out instructions on their website as noted in my previous post and I received an e-mail back from a Judi Williams saying that my number was added to their internal do not call list. Good news for sure. I hope it's true.
I recently had my oil changed and remember specifically that the woman mispelled my name (Christian instead of Christina). The woman on the other line asked for Christian but I told her she had the wrong number. It took me a while but I know for sure that's how she got my number. I don't really know why that place gave this company my number but I sure won't be going back there again and hopefully they won't be calling again.
I just got two calls from them yesterday. Did not answer left no messgae. There are instructions on their website on how to opt-out of getting calls. go to http://www.westernwats.com/truste.htm and skip down to opt-out instructions. I just tried it, we'll see.
Call came in, and hung up after 4 rings. Showed as Cellular Call. I called it back and it was business, but I couldn't understand the computer.
When I answered the call, the guy said hello then just hung up. The next time I let the machine pick up and he never left a message. I am on the Do Not Call list.
I just called the phone number and it was Western Wats or www.westernwats.com It's a survey organization. How did I get this call on my cell phone?
Call came in 11-16-06 @ 6:54 pm to Michigan
Call came in at 7:45 p.m. There was no voice/noise on the line.
Call came in at 8:30 p.m. There was no voice/noise on the line.
this is a marketing research company - you can go to www.westernwatts.com - I called them and told them to take my number off any lists theymay have. You can just leave a voice mail.
I got a call from this number twice today. The first time, I didn't answer. The second time, I picked up and said "hello," but all I heard was the "beeping" of buttons on the keypad being punched.
we called the number back. western watts - polical survey firm
Showed "Provo, UT". Maybe it was Fletch?
One girl on the phone, one in the background noise. Hung up after answering. Call came to San Diego.
This is a Provo UT cell number, according to whitepages.com.
At 6:09PM, I got a call from 801-623-4627
. a polite man's voice said "Hello? May I please speak to Jean?...Hello?" and hung up.
At 7:42PM (same day), A woman's voice on my machine said "Hello?" and hung up. I'm guessing this is some kind of political survey. I'm on the do not call list, and politicos are somehow allowed to harrass us anyway.
Call came in on 10-17-06 said unavailable and the call came to Las Vegas
