I have been getting 3-5 calls PER DAY from this number for quite a long time. How do I get off the list? This is definitely a harrassment and infringement on our personal lives. I turn on the phone and lay it down until I hear the beep hangup, thinking it will kick me out of the system...hasn't happened. I answer it and ask them to hold until it beeps...still get the calls! If it WERE a charity that I care about, I WOULD NOT contribute because of the way they harrass! I WANT NO PART OF THIS!!
Charity call for come childrens charity. I hung up.
We have been harassed several times in recent days by this number. A call-back reaches a auto-message saying that we've been contacted for "marketing research or a sales call".

I usually don't answer this type of call, but got tired of them waking me up, so I did and they asked to speak to me by name. I asked who's calling and they said National Caregiver's Services and started their speil. I interrupted and said, Would you please remove this number from your calling list? They said it would take up to 30 days, but they would remove it. I then called the number back and a recording said I had been contacted for marketing research or a sales call.
Answered - donation solicitors for Skyward Bound Ranch in Brownwood, Texas.
This was the first time I answered - they have been calling once or twice a day for MONTHS.
I see from other callers this is Discover Card. Contrary to what some have said, we DO have a Discover Card and we are still getting these. Unfortunately that may mean in our case they are not in violation of DNC. Thank you for providing this info:
"Customer has to call 800-DISCOVER to be removed" I will give it a try
Called and no one was there upon answering. Called it back and got the recorded message of "you have been contacted for a marketing or sales call." repeats then hangs up. Will report to do not call.
we don't answer, they wait until the "beep" on the voice mail and than hangup
After just receiving my 9th call of the day I decided to call a number that was mentioned on this page - 1-800-347-2683
. I talked to a gentleman who works for DISCOVER in Utah. He said he would put my name on their list of do not call and apologized. Time will tell.
I just received my 8th call today. I do not have a DISCOVER card. I blocked the number but it still rings once before they are disconnected. I also want them to leave me alone.
They call and call and call. Three times today and it is only noon
Call came to Kansas at 09:59 hours CST on 1-18-10. Call not answered and no message left. Other posters advised that this is a telemarketer for Discover cards.
I called the number and an automated message says, "You have been contacted for a sales call or marketing research". Do NOT answer this one. It will be a waste of your time, too.
They call about twice a day. I will contact Discover next time they call. Thanks for the info.
Caller ID showed it to be yet another phone number I don't need to answer. Just another person/place I don't need to listen to.
These people are relentless!! I have spoken to 5 or 6 people at Discover, representatives and supervisers at the telemarketing company all to no avail. Each person ASSURES me the calls will stop and of course they don't. Next call is to the state Attorney General's consumer affairs office and the local TV station consumer affairs investigator. Good luck to all others who are victims of these idiots!!!!
Discover Card services fishing for offering svcs or products that are probably not needed. Must be getting desperate.

Toll Free - Hang up 15 sec. after I answered
Why are they not being prosecuted by FCC, if they are violating a law?
it is discover card calling
I received 4 calls from them today- one I actually answered
I decided then to investigate this number online and found this blog- if you're receiving calls from this number, READ THIS BLOG http://www.pcmech.com/article/were-you-called-by-866-831-4847/ it's about a girl who also received these same calls, her experience and how the HELL to try and get them to stop calling you :-) good luck guys
They called three times today, let the answering machine pick up, never left a message.
The last time they called I answered ready to yell, I spoke to a woman named "lori" from discover asking for my mother, told her she wasn't home and said she'd call back later to try and reach her?
Sounds like a major scam.
Phone company getting multiple requests to block this number. Contacted Discover directly, and it is a sales and marketing call with no regard to DNC lists, which is a violation. Customer has to call 800-DISCOVER to be removed. Oddly enough, card members are not solicited for this sales/marketing call. Enough reports on fines through Do Not Call should get their attention.
You have been contacted for marketing research (on behalf of Discover card.)
3 to 4 calls daily
how do I make them stop ?
These people call multiple times a day and only responded once and hung up.
don't know who they are, don't care, i just want them to leave me the hell alone and quit calling. i'm sick of answering the phone and it's nobody but scammers, degenerates and people you don't have a crap about.
Added to my list of blocked numbers.... why can't non-Voip providers give this service? I will never go back. This in itelf is worth my $15.95 bill each month.

They said that it was a 'courtesy call' from Discover Card. They asked for my wife and refused to talk with me.
I realize that the federal and state do-not-call lists do not apply when you have a business relationship with someone (and we have a discover card); but, you'd think that they would get a clue and tell their telemarketing departments to honor the lists -- as these are people who have taken the step of saying ``I do not want telemarketing calls.'' They are likely to be poor prospects. You're likely to just p*ss them off.
Call back gets recorded message: "You have been contacted for marketing research or a sales call."
Called here and asked for my father...asked who is calling, telemarketer scumbag replied "Michelle", asked what company and she said "I can't tell you only Robert" and hung up. Funny thing is Michelle, he is here and I would have given him the phone...I guess you don't want to talk to people huh? Are you a lazy bitch Michelle? Is that why you are jockeying a phone instead of getting a real job?
Got 4 or 5 calls from them today with no messages.
I get 4-5 calls a day, they wont take me off the do not call list
Not feeling encouraged by what I see here. Hope it's just election stuff and that I'll never hear from them again.
They call about 3 or more times aday. Just now they called 3 times within the past hour. When I called it back, it says I have been contatced for marketing research or a sales call. I am on the governments do not call list.
They call several times. If I answer they hang up.
Number calls, long distance. Pick up phone - regardless of me answering or not.. within ten second the phone hangs up. 2 times now within 2 hours.
Four calls in one day and it's not even noon yet.
This is really getting irritating – I won’t to strangle them !!!!!
"Michael called asking for a particular member in the household, wouldn't let me get a word in edgewise to further inquire about said call. He'd call back was a quick response and the call was ended.
It's Discover trying to run a test credit through your new business credit card system. They are relentless, I'm fed up with them so much that I'm going to cancel my merchant accounts and just not use credit cards if this is how it is. They call AT LEAST 6 times a day. I am not going to run my credit card machine over the phone to anyone as a test, I don't care who they say they are!
They call all the time! I called the number back because I never answer it and they never leave a message. It says that " you have been contacted for marketing research or sales call. A lot of good
it's done me for putting my number on the due not call list.
I live in Florida.
Two or more calls a day; rings; I answer and no one there. Extremely annoying. I called the number back and it said, "you have been contacted for marketing research or a sales call
This was a polling call from JM Research on the presidential campaign. I'm assuming it was an "internal" poll by the McCain campaign as there is no "JM Research" in existance that I've been able to find. I live in Florida
I get calls from this number literally back to back. It's like being stalked. If I answer, they hang up and if I don't they call back like two minutes later and they have never left a message. Super annoying.
I have receied 10 calls from this number in 2 days
Calling my cell over 50 times in the last 24 hours!
10 times today every hour on th 1/2 hour I do not answer but annoying while @ work
DiscoverCard outsource offering free 30 day credit report adn them $9.99 per rmonth after that
They hung up when answering machine started. I suspect this is just a "mechanical" caller, dialing at random and making note of numbers that are actually pick up, so that they can build lists for telemarketers.
Several calls this morning with hangups about 5 seconds into my machine recording. After reading the messages here I should say that I did indeed get a Discover Card within the last year and will call them to complain.
Got at least 6 calls from this number just today!! I don't pick up the call. Do you think they will ever get the message?
I received 12 calls in 5 hours from this number.
Based on others' comments, I believe this must be a telemarketing company hired by Discover Card. I am going to tell Discover to stop calling me for promotions. I was on vacation for 8 days and they called 20-something times while I was gone. I believe that is harrassment, but presently it is not illegal. So if you have a Discover card, don't report this phone# to the FCC--time they spend investigating this is time they don't spend investigating something that is actually illegal. Call Discover Card and tell them to stop the madness!
Now that I think about it, my father did JUST activate his Discover card, from his cellphone. He mentioned that he was asked to input his home telephone number; so maybe that's where they got it. I'll have to tell him when he gets home, then.
No names showed up on caller ID, but after several repeat calls I answered. The guy said he was from Discover Card...but I think to sell something rather than from the card service itself.

This number calls my house stating at 8:55 am and calls thru 9pm at least 6 times a day, every day. I let the answering machine get it and they leave no message.
I receive many calls daily from this number. They do not talk or leave a message.
This is Discover Card, My advice- cancel your card or do not apply for this card- they hand out your number to idiots.
Every other hour for the past three days!!! Annoying!
call numerous times a day, never leave a message. When I called back, I received an automated response that said "You've been contacted for marketing research or a sales call."
This caller called three times today.
THese people do not give up. They used to call every night a couple of times. I would never answer....now they call about 8AM every morning......still do not answer. I have called that number and it says" you have been contacted by a marketing or research co." UGH......
Called twice today. Upon answering there was silence both times.
The call is a major interruption of what I am doing. I have to much to do for this BS! I reported it to the donotcall registry. If you want to do the same, go to www.donotcall.gov . I have two other numbers I have also reported. I am going to be on this like glue to END this cr*p! Each one of these numbers calls me several times a day. It's insane and it's making ME insane! Why isn't there a law against this that actually fines the idiots who are doing it. I'm not paying to have a phone for their convenience. It's supposed to be for mine. No, they never talk. It's just calling to harrass.
I keep getting calls from this number 866-831-4847. They hang up when I answer & the never leave a message when the machine picks up. Sometimes they call up to 7-8 times a day and never speak when I pick up the phone. When you call back the number its states that you have been contacted for a slaes or marketing call. Then hangs up. So you can't even tell them to stop calling you! I am registed on the do not call list & have filed a complaint. But I also filed a complaint with the FCC today. I encourage everyone to fill out this form so that they will do something about this company- whoever they are. The FCC link is: https://esupport.fcc.gov/form1088/consumer.do

Caller left message saying it was debt collection and to call 1-800-477-1827
. Could not understand name of collector. Since this does not apply to me I will ignore. I love caller id.
My hangups were from Discover -- I'm now on their donotcall list.
morons hung up on answering machine
LOL..get a VOIP. I have blocked this number, so it never rings, and they get a constant busy signal. With VOIP you can block INDIVIDUAL telephone numbers. It is a awesome feature, yet if you look at your call log online you can still see if they are calling..and yes these guys are still calling, but they will never get through on my line using this telephone number..hahaha! I use teleblend if anyone is wondering, but there are many others that offer a number block. I don't know why regular phone companys are so slow to adopt such a thing..perhaps a conflict of interest since they also sell your numbers.
3 times yesterday, and twice so far today. I have the computer answer and tell them that I am on the do not call list, I have called Discover card and asked that it stop, I have recorded all the calls to the donotcall.gov list. An address to this company would be nice to write a cease and disist letter.
It is really a pain that these people keep calling every day for the past 3 months and sometimes twice a day.
I have had it. I am calling Discover Card and tell them to stop or I am going to cancel my card.
Martin Logsdon Apr 14th, 2008
I got 5 calls from this number: 2 on the 8th, 2 on the 9th, and one today. I was home for the last call. When I picked up the receiver, I heard nothing after I said Hello. So I hung up and won't answer in the future if/when this number comes up on the CallerID again.
Claimed to be from DiscoverCard. Offered to send my three credit reports for free. I asked multiple times if there was a charge and they said "no." They said they monitored my account for fraud and would continue to. Kept asking if they could send the packet and I kept asking about a charge and they kept saying "no." Eventually, they said I had 30 days from the postmark and then tried to steer the talk away quickly. When I asked about the 30 days, she finally said to cancel or it would be $12.99 per month.

These "unknowns" have resumed calling me daily. I do not respond but WILL file another FTC complaint.
Telemarketers from Discover Card trying to sell credit monitoring service and ID Theft protection. To get off their list call their Customer Service at 1-800-347-2683
Usually get a call from this number but never answered until today. They asked for my husband and I asked to take a message, they said it was just a courtesy call. Yeah, right.
Oh how I just love it when thay call you around 7 in the morning and I refuse to pick up the phone. They call me 3 times from fri-sun

Grrrrrrrrrr Feb 02nd, 2008
Called 2-3 times per hour from 4-9pm for the past 5 days. No answer.
Just called 1-800 Discover and they identified this number as theirs - have lodged a complaint with them and with donotcall.gov
I was also receiving several calls a day just to be hung up when answered or no message left on answering machine...
I picked up the phone and the person hung up as soon as he heard my voice.
Very bad sound quality. Lady asked for me and give an speech about something they were offering but due bad connection quality I has no Idea on what they where offering.
I don't answer phone calls from unknown area codes.
Marketing research or a sales call
Didn't answer, those bastards called 4 times today! I think I will get that phone tray software. Who do these people think they are?
Asked for my wife. Said she wasn't here could I take message. They said no and quickly hung up. I'm pretty sure this is Discover Card. Even though I'm registered on DONOTCALL, they have "right to call" since we have that credit card. One way out-Call company and tell them to stop calling for marketing and sales research...otherwise it never stops...
They did not leave a message on my office voice mail. When I called this number back, it said "you have been contacted for marketing research or a sales call". GO AWAY!!!! I hate these places. They are a waste of time!
