I didn't answer, as soon as my machine answered, they hung up.
I guess that robocall summit did the trick, huh? Caller ID is the answer for me.
Received 2 calls in last 2 days, caller id indicated SIRS. They did not leave a message. Looks like being on do not call list does not help.
They were doing a telephone survey on shopping habits. I politely refused to participate and hung up. The number is now in my computer program 'PhoneTrayPro' which will answer this number the next time they call, give them a piece of my mind, and hang up. All that's needed is a Fax/Data/Voice/CallerID modem and the program. Check it out at: http://www.phonetray.com/ or https://www.facebook.com/PhoneTray
Called at 5:38PM on 11/16. As always, I didn't answer, letting it go to voice mail. The Caller ID read, "SIRS". This unwanted call fell in the "no message" category (the other category is "recorded message", which, fortunately, runs concurrent with my voice message greeting so that most of the message doesn't record, and pressing "77" gets rid of the rest of it). You'd think telemarketing, suveys and solicitors would wise up to the fact that we get a ton of them, despise all of the intrusions, and don't pick up for any of them. Anyone who employs them is wasting their money.
Caller ID shows SIRS not familiar and didn't answer.
they hung up as soon as i answered on the third ring .
Called at 9:30pm. Not very happy with them. I am on the Do Not Call List.
No, John, the ''not a sales call'' disclaimer is used by DNC-exempt callers because they know people like you will piss and moan anyway about perfectly legal conduct. You've been preaching that ''placebo'' argument for weeks now, apparently ignorant of all the FTC's civil actions against credit reprice scammers, fake warranty pushers, et al. In the past two years the Commission has advanced past wrist-slap fines and begun to send violators to prison.
We can argue about how much more the FTC could be doing, and I'm personally disappointed by how poorly it educates the public to guard against telecomm abuses. But we have to acknowledge it has barriers. Illegal nuisance calls as an issue take a backseat to terrorist warfare, destructive energy policy, political horseracing, and celebrity weddings. Closer to point, when the DNC program was created the criminals did not yet have cheap VOIP service and Caller ID spoofing as primary tools. The FTC is addressing the latter in a summit this Autumn, just announced three weeks ago.

Just hung up on them. I suspect a robo call but didn't bother attempting to interact with a caller who opens with an assurance that "this is not a telemarketing call"... in other words, we KNOW you don't want this call but we've skirted the rules. Whether they qualify as a DNC list violation is irrelevant because DNC is a government placebo button intended to create the illusion that the government cares about and responds to our concerns.
This person called asking for someone over 21 for an apparent marketing survey. Caller ID listed "Strum Electric" as the caller. The called was made at 2 PM on a Father's Day Sunday. Totally inappropriate and wouldn't have mattered what they were offering, selling or marketing their timing and complete disrespect for families, Fathers, and the Sabath is a reflection of what ignorance spawns
