Just received a call....Didn't answer....Telephone number appeared on my tv log...They are now blocked...National Do Not Registry doesn't help much......losers.
Although I block the caller they still call
yes why does these people keep calling .I am sick and tired of these people calling my phone..do they need to do this stop now
This number call two times in two days at approximately the same time after 8pm. They left no message.
This is Arbitron survey they were purchased by the Nielsen rating services. The phone repeatedly rings twice you answer it and no now wha is there. They are nuisances at conducting surveys and have found out my cell phone number. I finally spoke to someone and asked to be put on their Do Not Call list.
Call my MIL all time and she picked up and they wanted her social security number and other info about who lives there etc. If these are survey people why do they ask for such personal message. Thankfully my MIL is smart and told them to screw off! Unfortunately they continue to call her.
Take the hint **** I don't want your crap!
this is Arbitron. they likely are calling if you agreed to do a survey diary of some sort. they usually send you a servey with a couple of dollars, then promise more when you return it. very solid compqny. so far i have made 55 dollars with 3 surveys
I picked up, phone beeped twice and automatic "thank you". Who knows.
CEO Bill Kerr
When this number calls my house it rings twice like it does for my fax number. If you pick it up nobody is there. Sick of it.
Have called at least 6 times in past week. Enough!
Arbitron number for surveys. You get money if you participate.
I make money With those pleople for couple answer
Survey company for TV/radio ratings. As they are a phone survey company they are exempted from the DNC registry but if you answer and tell them to remove your name they should be able to put you on their internal DNC list
I won't answer, but will check my snail mail 2 b sure I don't shred any dollar bills!!!!!
It's a tv and radio survey. I took the survey over the phone ( about 5 min) and they sent me ten dollars in the mail. Then they sent me another survey in the mail, I filled it out and they sent me twenty dollars.
Call but hang up soon as I answer
I hate these pain in the **** jerks.
Theyve called me, i dont want to participate in any surveys.
Sent me mail with a dollar inside letter. Said they would call for survey. Sure enough, they did. I do not answer as I do not want to participate. I am on do not call registry as well and recently updated. These people are annoying! How do they get away with calling people on the registry?!
They keep calling using different numbers, I have caller id, so when I see an unknown or unavalible with number I don't answer, and they don't leave message on my answering machine- it's very annoying
410-312-8222 called me with a survey
These rude people keep calling my home several times and I call back and tell them never to call me again yet everyday they keep calling me over and over again...they are loosers bugging innocent folks!I am now turning them into the BBB and anywhere else I can! ha!
This would normally be a survey, but not in my case. Earlier this summer, Arbitron selected my family at random to keep individual diaries of what my household listens to on the radio for a week, starting this Thursday. Judging from the posts below, not many know that Arbitron is the company that generates the ratings of AM, FM, and TV programs (or used to as far as TV goes). The rates that advertisers pay for radio and TV commercials are determined from these ratings. When they called, I did not recognize their number, so I didn't answer. But I will call them back. We'll see what they are up to....
Stop calling me!
This is Verizon Wireless. They call when your account is past due.
Called once didn't leave message. Called number back, won't return call.
Ha! Do these calls ever stop? I won't answer, I don't want to do any surveys!So far they've called 15 times. Positive note: I'm trying to train the dog to not get excited when the phone rings, so when Arbitron calls, I just let it ring and try to teach the dog to be calm and go to his bed.Calls so far: 11-14 3:54PM, 10:40AM; 11-13 6:42PM, 10:14AM; 11-12 4:59PM, 9:37AM; 11-11 4:42PM, 10:42AM, 8:36AM; 11-10 6:07PM, 10:45AM; 11-09 7:05PM; 11-07 5:57PM; 11-06 7:21PM; 11-05 11:38AMHey Arbitron! If you're reading this, try to figure out who I am and do me a favor and remove my number from your call list!

Thay keep calling at all hours from 7am to 10pm fead up with them. I am on the do not call list.
They won't stop calling. I have asked them to stop.
They will not stop calling me.
automatic call at 7:20 AM for a survey? Nonsense
Must be a real important survey to be calling at 7:30am!
Someone from this number has called my home every day for the last week or so. I do not answer and they do not leave a message. I am on do no call registry so they need to stop asap!
I want this company to stop calling me! They've called every night for the past two weeks.
call, silence, no message
This call keeps coming in every day.
TODAY, 7.08.2009, it came in @
Calls usually twice a day at approximately the same times each day. I never answer, since my caller ID tells me who is calling.
Caller name is Arbitron, Inc. They have called several times staring about a week ago. I do not answer and they do not leave a message. Since I am the do not call registry list I do ot understand how or why they continue to call. I have not filled out anything for anyone to call me for any reason.
They are not leaving a message But they call twice a day. We are also on the do not list.
please list Arbitron's owner's PERSONAL PHONE NUMBERS so we can call them and see how they like it. Hopefully they will get the point of what their "business" really does - harass people at home.When I get their numbers my call is going to go like this:"Hello, I'm calling to do a survey on people's thoughts on receiving phone call surveys. Do youA: Welcome the survery calls - love talking to strangers on the phoneB: Find them annoyingC: Too busy to talk - call again laterThank you for your time - I will call again in a few days to see if you changed your answer.Have a great day."
No message. Keep calling and we are on the colorado and the national do not call lists
Called me at 9.30 at night. Some kind of survey about auto insurance.
Calls multiple times a day. All hours. Keeps waking my kids up. ENOUGH ALREADY!
410-312-8222 listed as Arbitron, Inc. repeatedly calls our home and has done so this entire week
They have called several times just within the last couple of days. ENOUGH ALREADY!!!! STOP CALLING!!!!!! Caller ID comes in real handy for annoying calls like this!!!!
Stop the madness
They constantly call and also send text messages - Get 'em the f#*k off my number.
This ediot called me at 9:10 P M last night.Calls regularly I don't answer any calls I don't know but am getting fed up with it .I'm 71 yrs old an do not like being harresed by these calls. Hope someone gets them stopped soon.I think all these people needs jailed .
This company does not know when enough is enough! We agreed to participate in their survey, and have regretted it ever since. They have called us at least once every-other-day, and sometimes as much as 2-3 times in one day.
My husband asked them last week to stop the calls and since I've gotten 4 more calls. Today I've asked them again to stop the calls.
Multiple daily calls for weeks on end.
I usually don't answer, but recently picked up and politely requested to be removed from their call list.
Net result: Multiple daily calls for weeks on end.
unable to stop unwarranted contact attempts
Calls and hangs up
on national do not call list
I am on the National Do Not Call Registry and also, pay extra $ every month to have an non-published home phone number... Is there some kind of action that can be taken toward these people who are calling a number on the national registry?
This number calls me at least once per day and will not stop. Even when I pick up and request that I be taken off the list, they persist.
Call at 8:30 PM PST to a number listed on the national "no-call" list.
3 maybe 4 times per day, every day. no message.
no message left
Caller ID says Arbitron, Inc.
call my house constantly. was getting suspicious if it was someone pranking me as a fake co. no real co would call all times of day and night and weekends.
BESTBUY OR PANASONICPHONE COMPANY ?.
BROKEN HAND PHONE JUST ESCHANGE , AND FIX SHOP DON'T KNOW WHERE ,
By the way - the number Arbitron, Inc. is calling from is 410-312-8222 - from what I can tell, this is their website http://www.arbitron.com/home/content.stm
This arbitron, inc. place calls my house 3 to 4 times a day. My number is on the do not call regsitry but they still continue to call. I have a newborn baby and they called after 9 pm (my time) one night and woke him up - that was the final straw! I answered, waited for whoever was on the other end to connect, told him to never call here again and that it was was WAY too late to be calling me. I asked if they were a telemarketer and he said it's a radio survey. They still continue to call 3 times a day, all hours. I wish I knew how to make them stop. I am ****!
My family's unlisted phone number got YET ANOTHER cowardly silence call from the same number 410-312-8222, just 1.5 hours after I posted my prior report!
Got a nuisance no-talk call just before 7:30pm yesterday (Jan 6, 2009) by 410-312-8222. - despite that I am on the National Do Not Call List. I picked up, said "Hello" but the coward refused to say anything. Yet someone was on the other end, because liine didn't go dead 'til I hung it up. Caller ID says only "OUT OF AREA" (area code is far from my own).
No message I am on the National Do Not Call List.
Minimum of ten calls a day, every 30 minutes or so.
Calling ten to fifteen times a day, every day. Calling late at night and very early in the morning.
Called 11/12 6:14 P.M. No message
Called 11/13 10:46 A.M. No message
Called 11/13 8:11 P.M. No message
I am on the National Do Not Call List
This call came in at 9pm PST. We did not answer it. They did not leave a message.
This call came during the evening right after dinner. We did not answer and no one left a message.
I have received phone calls from this number (which belongs to Arbitron) every single day for the last 3 weeks. I told the caller that I was not interested in what they were "offering" - and still I continue to receive these phone calls.
File a complaint with the Maryland Attorney General's office. This is the information you will need: Arbitron Ratings Chris Johnson Arbitron Ratings 9705 Patuxent Woods Drive Columbia, MD 21046-1521 Phone: 800-638-7091 The Attorney General's website follows. There is a link on here for "File a Consumer Complaint" Make sure you document how often they call, what time of day they call, what is said, etc. I have already done this and have already received a response. It works and it will get these creeps stopped. http://www.oag.state.md.us/Consumer/index.htm
We couldn't stand their calls anymore. We found a very simple solution for all annoyance calls. We did some research on telephones and went to Best Buy and purchased a Panasonic phone Model KX-TG9333 DECT 6.0. This model has three handsets but you can get the same model with one, two or three. It allows you to block up to 20 phone numbers as long as you have Caller ID. It rings once or twice then disconnects the call. The caller never hears anything. The readout on the phone and the "missed call" list shows "Call Blocked". Just make sure you let the phone ring once or twice to see if it's a blocked call or someone you want to talk to. WE LOVE IT!!!!

I have told them NOT to call. am on do not call list. they are not listening!!!
How can they be stopped
Calls all times of day and evening..late evenings does this daily...I am on a no call list, seems that doesn't work with them.
multiple calls within 48 hours no messages - hangups
I'm on the no call list.
Why is this caller able to call me? I'm getting calls after 9:00 p.m. Isn't this illegal?
These people call day night and weekends at all hours, even though they were told we were not interested in answering their survey. We are on DoNotCall list and it is about time some action is taken on this company...
constantly calling, day and night, 3 times a day most days. I, too am on the do not call list. What else can we do? This should be against the law, actually, I thought it was!
won't stop calling when I told them uninterested
Told them to take me off their calling list. Her reply was "We will remove you from THIS survey." They have called every day this week and I have hung up on them and they still keep calling.
This number has been calling up to 4 times per day for the past 1.5 months.
Hey, I just had an idea. Let's answer their questions. Let's throw them off. Tell them you listen to some obscure station in your area. Like something on AM. Tell them you listen to it 24/7. That way all their sponsers/radio commericials will pay big money to advertise on that station. Hopefully.
will not stop even after repeated request to do so.
Constantly being bothered by calls several times a day at all time of the day. From early in the morning to after 9:18 PM at night.
I am tired of whoever is calling from this phone number. Every time I say hello there is no one there.
This needs to STOP!
I received my first call on Labor Day at 10 am. It was my day off to sleep late and they woke me up. They started off with telling me that they are not selling anything and that they are doing a survey. They asked me if I listened to the radio yesterday. I said, "No. You woke me up. Thanks a lot." Then I hung up on them. They called me again the same day at 8:27 pm. I let the answering machine pick it up because I don't wish to participate in their survey. My number is private and I also have put myself on the do not call registry. I guess they are using that list to actually call. They are an annoyance. I want them to stop calling me.
i am on the do not call list and these people have called repeatedly offering me credit card interest rate reductions. i do not want their sales solicitation calls.
Continually call us about Arbitron ratings survey
They keep calling us too, like, a HUNDRED times a week. Is there anyway to block numbers from calling?
These people have been told time and again not to phone but they insist upon doing so anyway. Jesus. I can't get any peace. How did I get on their list?
They call 3-4 times a day at all hours of the day, including after 10 pm and before 6 am.
I just started getting these calls as well. I tried emailing them at firstname.lastname@example.org (from an email address I never use) to get them to cease and desist.
I think everyone who receives these annoying calls should send Abritron an annoying letter or post card ... with postage due that they have to pay if possible.
Here is there address with some a-hole's name who you are supposed to write:
9705 Patuxent Woods Drive
Columbia, MD 21046-1521
Or call them from an upspecified phone number ... their number:
This company calls our home many times a day, including hours that are not legal. They just called here again this morning around 7:30am. Our number has been unlisted since we had it, and has always been on the do-not-call list.
After agreeing to participate in their survey, we received an introductory letter that included five dollars. Then they sent one diary (to record which radio stations you listen to for one week)for each household member. Each diary came with a few one-dollar bills. No problems with rudeness on the phone.
Yep, I have getting these calls too here in Texas!I just look at the call screening (a great help) and if I don't recognize thenumber I don't pick up. If it important enough they can leave a message.But I will not be answering any calls for Arbitron!Call screening...a great help in avoiding pick up of these unwanted calls!
they keep calling but not leaving msgs. If they don't want me to call back, why would I care to speak with them in the first place?
calls and says nothing
I am listed on Do Not Call and still they call.
I am sick of you calling my house day and night.
Call between 7am and 10pm. Should be illegal
I have told them I was not interested and not to sure how they got the number but to remove my number, the woman was rude and said it isnt a survey, she was caling to see if I "qualify" to do their survey, ok really now ! again told them to remove my number, next thing will be reporting them to local authorities
Calls 2-3 times a day sometimes after 9:00PM. They have left a message they are conducting a survey on radio stations. If I do not answer is because I do not want your call.
I've asked these people several times to stop calling, and they continue to.
What's a consumer to do?
They've been told to remove our phone # from their calling list, but they continue to call.
repeated calls after requesting to stop.
they call all day long and even early in the morning before 8 am. this is very annoying and we don't want to participate!
They bother and bother

calls and dose not leave
message, calls over and over.
they keep calling and calling and i am on the do not call list this is my 2nd complaint on here
They call 2 or 3 times a day every day unbearable!!
called 3 times for a survey
Calls from 7am until after 9pm--am on a do not call list & aren't there laws about calling before 8am and after 9pm??? From what i have looked up they do surveys
They will not stop calling for the last week every day two times a day early mornings and late evenings
They will not stop calling they call early mornings and late evenings Please have them stop calling!
Keeps calling wanting me to participate because they sent me a dollar. Asked them to stop several times and they still call 2 or 3 times a day.
on a do not call list, this includes surveys...If I don't know you don't call here.
Calls everyday - no answer
410-312-8222 Caller calls us at 6:30 in the morning and as late as 10:30 at night. They do not leave message, just keep calling. Very irritating.
Calls and hangs up after laughing. I am on the Do Not Call list. How would she even get my number?
Call daily and will not remove my telephone number from the call list
I am on the Do Not Call Register and have an unlisted phone number and these people are calling constantly. They call at 7:00 am and as late as 9:30 pm.
They call over and over and over. Sometimes leaving messages, sometimes not. They've been calling non-stop for at least a week. Just in the past 3 days they have called at 4:30pm, 8:45pm . . . the next day at 9:00am, 11:45am, 7:45pm and today at 7:55am, 2:00pm, 6:30pm, 9:30pm.
They left a message on my answering machine today at 6:30pm saying "We were just trying to contact you ONE LAST TIME to see if you would like to be part of our research survey about local radio stations." ONE LAST TIME, I think not. THEN they called again at 9:30pm saying "This is ____ calling from Arbitron. We aren't trying to sell anything. We do surveys on local radio listeners in your area and were just wondering what radio stations you listen to."
I told the girl we listen exclusively to satellite radio, do NOT listen to local radio stations and that it was 9:30pm and I DO NOT appreciate telemarketing calls especially not this late at night. Her answer was "Um, whatever." then just sat there on the line not saying anything until I finally hung up on her.
We shall see if that actually stops the calls . . . :(
repeated calls from this #
I receive at least 3 calls per day. On 4/21 calls were received at 11:02 am, 3:03 pm and 6:33 pm. I called and asked to have my number taken off their list and still receive calls.
this phone number showed up on my caller ID. it belongs to ARBITRON, INC. what ever that is.
Calls doing a radio survey at least 3 times a week
won't stop calling!
This number has called me probably everyday, maybe more than once a day over the past few weeks. I would love to block them
hate to say it, but read the fine print, surveys don't apply to do not call list, "technically" not trying to sell you anything
I am on the DO NOT CALL listing and am receiving calls from this number
They called me from 410-312-8222 at 7:30pm, the guy asked me what radio stations did I listen today. Then, if I would like to receive a booklet of the radio stations in my area or something like that. I said yes, but then he asked me if I would like to receive something else (I thought he was going to try to sell me something) and I hung up. but maybe it was just really a survey.
I would like to stop this person from calling me.
this caller is arbitron radio survey and i called them and they said they would put me on their do not call list, i had to make a long distance call in order to do this and i do not trust them and i threatened to bring the news media to maryland if they bother me again
these people are adamant in harrasing me when i tell them i am on a do not call list and they won't hang up and i can't get my dial tone back, i have medical issues and do not want them to bother me, creeps, we need a president who will stop this harrasment so everyone should vote wisely in the next elections
where is this 410 area code?
I just received a call from this radio rating company called Arbitron Inc., their website is www.arbitron.com. Of course, if I don't recognize a phone number, I don't answer it.
