Phone: 650-995-7246

I get 5 -10 calls everyday from them. They never say anything if I (Man) answer the phone. If my wife answers they say they are from Publishers Clearing house sweepstakes and want to send her a gift card. My wife has told them everytime to put us on the do not call list and they still keep calling. She has handed me the phone and I have told them to put us on the do not call list. They just hang up on me. My wife has said though, that she has spoken to a female every time. She has also put them on speaker phone, they sound like intelligent white women. Not like you get from substandard call centers in the south that employ deginerate, low life, black woman who can barely speak American English.

They left a message on my machine saying, "Sasha, I have great news." and that was it. And then, once they called and said, "Is this Sasha?" I said yes and they hung up.

This number calls me at work multiple times and at night also....rings until I pick up....calls again if I just hang up...never anyone on the other end... when I call back the number on the caller ID - the mailbox is always full. The only thing happening on the other end is a recording saying you have reached PBI Mailbox Magazine.
 Nov 26th, 2008
 Nov 25th, 2008
I get this call multiple times a day. There is never anyone on the other end. I finally called the number back and it gives you the option to take your number off their list. The catch is the mailbox is always full so you cannot leave your number. The company is PPI Magazine and there are numerous complaints on the web. I have registered my number on the do not call list and will file a complaint with them if the calls do not stop after my grace period. For those interested you can use donotcall.gov and annoying calls like these should stop.

i was stupid enough to sign up for the magizine subscription and supposedly i won a diamond watch also. they called early and i wasn't thinking. i looked up this company and realized it was a mistake. i called back the 1-800-924-1399 number and they said it was too late to cancel and now i am going to be charged 16 payments of $59.80 a month for supposedly 5 years worth of magazines. i really want to cancel, but every time i call they say i agreed to a non-cancel agreement. now i am kicking myself for being so gullible. lets see if i really get a diamond watch in the mail.
 Jun 04th, 2008
I received a call from Personal Period company between 5:30 and 6:00 AM in the morning. I was awoken from sleep and answered to dead air. I called the number back 954-724-9490 and a recorded message came on saying it was PPI Mailbox and that it was full. I tried dialing 0 and any number of combinations in hopes of reaching a human with no luck. I was going to be reasonable and talk to someone before I reported them to the Do not Call registry, but since they have made themselves inaccessible, I am just going to report them.
 Jun 03rd, 2008
i'm ready to go to florida and take vengance. calls at all hours, message to not call box is full. calls for over a month now, i've had it.
 May 21st, 2008
If you really would like to do damage to this business,there is a much better way to do it than bothering relatives and neighbors of the owner. The State of Florida issues a License to Telemarketers that must be renewed annually! You may all make complaints online to http://www.800helpfla.com/compconfirm.html!! I called the Attorney General of Florida's office850-414-3300)you can also file a complaint there and they will take action when they get a critical mass of complaints- and they pointed me to the Dept. of Agriculture(of all things) for individual complaints. So, everybody file..and get these folks out of business for good!!

Someone else on another site posted this contact info. I called the number and got a live person to ask to be taken off the list (I got another call today, so I called her back again). Will keep calling them each time I get a call - maybe that will get them to take my number off the list for real.

I get a call from this number about 6-10 times a day, and have been for the last couple of months. It never rings long enough for me to answer it. It might ring once and sometimes not even a full ring. I never get an answer when I call back, it just rings until I get sick of waiting.

They have been calling me twice a day for three weeks even at 5:30 am!. this is a scam company their address and phone number to get a real person is ( My local Police Dept. gave it to me):

6331 W Commercial Blvd
Fort Lauderdale, FL , 33319-2316
Phone: 954-724-9374

I called them and told them not to call me and gave only my number, DO NOT GIVE THEM ANY OTHER INFORMATON THEY ARE IDENTITY THEIVES OR SELL THE INFO TO OTHERS! the jerks promptly called me back again as soon as I hung up!
 Feb 18th, 2008

 Feb 04th, 2008
This number has called 5 X within the hour. I am on the National Do Not Call Cell phone registry, How do I report this.
 Jan 26th, 2008
This number is calling me sometimes at less than 5 minute intervals. I don't know them and I don't want to talk to them. This is a nuisance caller.

16 calls on the first day. had to put a block on it the 2ed.
 Jan 16th, 2008
I got so caught up responding to Aundrie's message I forgot to add what I logged on for - I listened to the entire pitch from the sales representative (after they had called several times and hung up when I answered) - I declined the offer and asked to not receive any more calls - the sales representative was very polite and said she would remove me from the calling list but it could take up to a couple of weeks. I asked about the hang ups - it has something to do with an automatic dialer - I think a computer does the dailing - It's not even a person hanging up on me!! Somthing about not having a sales representative available when the call connection is made. I felt much better knowing I wasn't getting cranks.
and by the way, everyone gets a watch for participating in the magazine promotion! Buy the service, get the free gift!
 Jan 02nd, 2008
Andrie, did I read what you wrote correctly - Sounds like buyers remorse to me- why would you agree to buy something they told you was not able to be cancelled, later change your mind and try to cancel the service they previously told you was not able to be cancelled- and then say they are scammers? Aren't they just expecting you to stick to the agreement you made with them? You did say you agreed to buy the service, right?? and they had told you if you bought the service that it wasn't able to be cancelled after it was placed? Guess I am confused as to what your complaint here is??
 Jan 02nd, 2008
They were nice when I called - told them I had called before and had asked to be put on their 'do not call list' and they were still calling - they apologized - haven't heard from them since! Guess you got to tell them twice.
 Dec 27th, 2007
Do not fall for this, remind everyone that you know. I will dispute this doesn't matter if they say I agreed to it because I agreed upon lies of getting diamonds watch. Apparently all of these people also win diamonds watch, what a joke.
 Dec 14th, 2007
I won't get the actual magazines until February and I will get the diamonds watch in 14 days after I return their confirmation address that it is indeed my address, then they will send the watch. I was arguing for good 45 mins and asked "What if I don't get the diamond's watch?" the supervisor replied, "Call me and I will send another one with certified mail that you have to sign." WOW! they have disposable diamonds watch that they can just send another one if the 1st one doesn't get delivered. I'm supposed to pay $35.88/mo for 16 mos for 3 years worth of subscribing. It is a scam even though I did agree to subscribe but I only did so because I "won" a diamond watch. Which is likely not going to be the case, they insisted it can't be canceled. So I will dispute the money they took from me and never to take my money again. They already took $35.88, I'm paying for something that I'm not receiving, this is not a service. This is a scam. And by looking at the numbers of complaints, apparently there are hundreds of people who won diamonds watches. (sarcasm)
 Dec 14th, 2007
they called at 9 am pst this morning and said I won a geneve' diamonds watch from publisher's sweepstakes, 3 free magazines and 1 paid magazines, I have to subscribe for 3 years and pay in 16 months monthly payments, said it can not be canceled after the order is made because they prepaid the publishers and can't take the money back. I was skeptic from the beginning, then the lady started to get annoyed and rude. I just woke up so I fell for it but then after I hung up, I woke up and called back to cancel, it's said it can't be cancelled, in 5 mins window can't be canceled.
 Dec 14th, 2007
take my #[501-776-0571] off your calling list.when my husband answers nobody talks to him.he also has called you back and said our number on the phone to get our number removed but it has not yet.REMOVE IT NOW.!!!!!!

 Dec 12th, 2007
I asked about when I answered and they hang up - they explained it was a computer dialing system and when there isnt a sales person to take the call after the machine connects then the machine just hangs up - felt better once I knew that someone wasn't calling and hanging up on me. Asked them to put me on the 'don't call me' list and they haven't called back
 Dec 06th, 2007
I have receive at least 1 call daily for about 3 weeks. I left my # on the recorder to stop calling me, but the calls continue. When I answer the call there's no one there.
 Nov 29th, 2007
i called and got a hold of 1 girl, she said she was the only one in the building at the time. I got worried and called to see if they were real or fake because even small buisness have more than 1 person in the building come on? So they told me to go to http://www.fcc.gov/cgb/complaints.html and fill out form #1088 thats for telemarketers. If they get so many they will go after them.
To see if they are a fraud company look up Federal Trade Communications or call 1-877-382-4357.
Hope this is helpful

thank you for this blog i wil forward this and my experience to the FBI.
 Nov 17th, 2007
Bastards will not stop calling. I called the number back and the voice message said if you no longer wish to receive this call leave your number so I did but the calls kept coming so I called again repeating the process and hopefully I will not get another call...I'm really tempted to curse the MF's out if they call again.

 Nov 08th, 2007
Nobody there when I answer the phone, I asked about that and they said it is a computer dialing that doesn't send the call fast enough to a sales rep - told them to remove me from the calling list and they obliged - no more calls
 Nov 08th, 2007
I keep getting calls from this number on my cell phone. Since they are not in my phone book, it just gives the number.
 Nov 06th, 2007
I have recieved calls from this number 9547249490 for at least a monthe now. I spoke with someone and told them I had put my number in for them not to call me anymore and to put me on thier do not call list. the guy said sorry and hung up real fast. I just recieved another call from them again. This is very annoying. I wish someone would do something. I did file a complaint from the address another member on here left. I hope it helps.

We're getting the same things happening as already reported. "Personal Period" is listed on CID. We answer, but there is never a response.
 Nov 02nd, 2007
Personal Period is on the caller ID - called and left message asking to stop the calls to my number - haven't heard from them since
 Nov 01st, 2007
I called the number from my caller id and got a recording - asked me to leave my number if I wanted to stop the calls - they haven't called since I left the message - good luck
 Oct 29th, 2007
Hey everyone.. all you have to do is leave a message with your phone# and they will stop calling.. sometimes it takes up to a week, but legally, they have 30 days to remove your number!! They were pleasant with me, I spoke to someone!!
 Oct 25th, 2007
Look at Paul's message dated 8/16/07. I'm going to sue and suggest everyone to do the same.

i keep getting calls from this number three times a day
 Oct 10th, 2007
Telemarketing auto dial on my cell!
 Oct 09th, 2007
The first time they called, I was told I had 'won' a sweepstakes. As I was telling them I was not interested, they hung up on me in the middle of my sentence. Since then, they have called at least once a day and hang up as soon as I answer the phone. Guess I'll try to get on their NDC list!
 Oct 05th, 2007
The ID is PPICRC. How do we stop them from calling us?
 Oct 04th, 2007

 Oct 04th, 2007
how do u get these idiots to stop calling and hanging up?
 Oct 03rd, 2007
They called 3 times in one night and when we answer, no one is there.
 Sep 23rd, 2007
always call around 7:30 or 8 pm. hang up once i answer.
 Sep 14th, 2007
These people keep calling and from looking at the other people they are 'harrassing' without any actual message or soliciting i am starting to wonder if this is in fact a government grey op for bugging democrats. If anyone being called by these creeps are Republicans I strongly apologize, but must say, if any of you are outspoken democrats...you might think about this. I'm going to get to the bottom of it and will get back to you. At least when other solicitors call they have something to say. This is so creepy that they call ALL the time (five time today so far) and then never say anything. ciao for now.

They've been calling once or twice a night for the last week, and never answer when we do, nor leave a message when we don't. We've called the number back and there is a message stating you can enter your number to be removed from the list, but it apparently doesn't work.

I wish I knew how to get ahold of this company another way.
 Aug 31st, 2007
The number comes up "Personal Period" onCID. I've gotten calls about 10 times a night for almost 2 months. I tried calling the number back several times, and get a recording telling me it's "PBI Mailbox Magazine", I should say my phone number after the beep and they'll stop calling...Guess what? The Mailbox is almost always full. Acouple nights ago I finally got to leave a message, but they keep calling me anyway.
 Aug 21st, 2007
After a little digging, found out who is behind this...let's go get 'em!!! Call this company, all day, every day...send junk mail...sue (if you can - if you've called to have your # removed and they keep calling after 30 days, you can sue for $500 for each call!)

They are unmerciful in their calling frequency and times - it begins at 5 in the morning and ends around 7 pm. I googled the number and the name of the company (Personal Periodicals, Inc in Pompano Beach, FL), and found out their front office number - should you wish to return the harassment, the number is 954-724-9374. Happy Hunting!
 Aug 10th, 2007
infuriating! Have gotten calls every day today 4 times, finally i'm fed up and looked up the number. I'm so happy to have found this website! Now I know its a stupid telemarketing company and not a scam. But still i'm really irritated, especially since they don't say anything!
 Aug 09th, 2007
Can you tell me who to call to get my name off the list? My number is already on the do not call list.
 Aug 02nd, 2007
I finally had a person on the line the last time I answered. She apologized and promised to take me off the list immediately and explained that it was an automatic dialer and it was obviously not functioning. Havent had a call since.
 Jul 30th, 2007
This number has called me 97 times (all logged in my call list) on my cellphone since last night. I stopped answering after the first call and I googled the number to find this site.
 Jul 25th, 2007
4 calls within the past two days.
 Jul 25th, 2007
OMG, they just called again, I answered, they hung up. WHy the hell would you call if you DON'T answer OR leave a VM?!
 Jul 24th, 2007
I got 6 calls yesterday morning alone. I finally called it back today and left my number on the recording to be removed. It's absolutley ridiculous to call more than once, and within an hour? Leave a VM and leave me alone!
 Jul 24th, 2007
they call and they hang up what do they do this personal period. it sounds like a tampon company it must be since all they do is rag on you
 Jul 21st, 2007
I get 3-5 phone calls from this number a day. They called my house 4 times in one hour a couple of nights ago. It's ridiculous. Does anyon know anything about them?
 Jul 20th, 2007
Why do they keep calling?!! This number calls like 10 times a day!!!! AAHH!!
 Jul 13th, 2007
Yes, we did get a call from this PPI today on a new phone number; a girl asked
for someone at this location and then hung up abruptly. The owner of this
phone number will be held
highly responsible for all this eventually. What is their goal? They may be reading this right now and getting some kick. Or maybe they are trying to find those ignorant people who will fall prey to their scheme, just after hearing how someone answers the phone. Let's help each other and inform one another to report this kind of harrassment as soon as possible.

 Jul 12th, 2007
The phone rang once and they hung up. I called them back, and there was a recording saying "Leave your phone number after the tone if you want your number removed from the list." I didn't do it. I don't trust that kind of crap.
 Jul 12th, 2007
I was getting calls from this number sometimes 4-5 times within a 20 minute period. I called it back and they asked foor you name and numbe so it could be taken out of the database. When I tried to leave the message the mailbox was always full. I looked up the number to see where it was coming from, and saw that it was from Florida. Being that I live on the West Coast, I couldn't understand why I was getting calls from Florida at past Midnight EST? This went on for another month. Finally I contaced the Better Business Bureau of Southeast Florida and saw that this company had a list of complaints. Additionally, I also contacted the Attorney General for good measure. I suggest to everyone who is being harrassed by this number to do the same.

I have received 25 calls from this phone number. CID says it is Personal Period. It is hard to ignore since it is an autodial and system just calls back and disturbs us again. They leave no msg. I had Select Call rejection installed today (4.99/mo) to stop this company's harrassment.

Somebody please do something!!! Receiving calls every hour for two days! Have awakened me in the morning two days running. When I answer, nobody is on the line. Called them back day 1, got someone named Lois on the line, asked to be removed. The calls then accelerated. "Personal Period" shows up, and the phone is answered "PPI Mailbox Magazines". Jerks.

Similar to all of your comments, I got a call today from the above number who said that they were with publishers clearing house and then I won a diamond watch and 3 magazine subscriptions. They wanted me to order a weekly subscription, which I refused to. When I got off the phone I was skeptical, but I had only given them the year I was born and told them I use a mastercard. Based on all of your comments, it seems that no one has had any fraudulent charges, but can anyone confirm? Thanks to the individual who posted the Do Not Call registry number!!!! I have registered with them. I also called back the above number and told them I was not interested and told them to take me off the list. They said it would take up to 24 hours. Hopefully this will be the end of the story.
