That is the M.O. of a telemarketer!
800-251-5850 keep calling and calling . We do not answer any phone calls from unknown phone numbers with Unavailable ID . We are on the Do Not Call List but it doesn't stop these Telemarketers from calling .
You make it seem like we will get the info for this number FREE. WRONG!!! you are as much a scam as the number all of us are wondering about. Shame on you. Be honest up front,you might make something.
This number has called me TWICE TODAY!!! They need to leave me the hell alone!! I don't do surveys, or purchase ANYTHING via; phone call!! I am on the no call list PERIOD!! If I want a service, I WILL CALL WHOMEVER I NEED!!!!
A child from a brother/sister marriage playing with the phone. Officially blocked
Didn't answer. Still getting calls.
If you answer - even if you scream or whatever - you get listed on their log as "answered" then you get more calls. The best thing to do is NOT ANSWER
I still don't answer SPAM.
I don't answer SPAM.
They just called me up and ten at night I went nuts on them and cursed them out hopefully they'll leave me alone after this
Keep calling & hanging up.
Caller very impolite. He said "good-bye" and hung up on me!
'Unavailable' on caller ID. Scumbag scammers!
Spam. Sex solicitor
If you have Verizon you can go to your account on line and block them for free for 90 days. Most carriers have limited free and fee blocking. Boat whistles are piercing but if you **** them off they will speed up the redial. Put all your contact list with same ringtone and when your phone rungs standard you will know without looking it is probably spam.
This number has a recording, I use my fax to call back that way they get fax tone, they have no
Option to take you off list they just say they aren't selling anything and can make the calls.
Get a good LOUD whistle and BLOW!!!
Dumb disresprctufull idiots!!
his is "research" company that goes by the name of "OTR" or "On Track Research." They call repeatedly, even if you ask to be removed from their call lists. Typically, they engage in political surveys, often engaging in polls of dubious nature designed to create public opinion, rather than understand it.
They are a shady and suspect organization. There is a whole list of interconnected companies whose relationships are obscured by a list of different names. For example, reviewing the Florida Department of State, Division of Corporations website (http://www.sunbiz.org/search.html) we find that OTR was listed as dissolved and inactive as of 09/15/2006.
A big red flag is the fact that caller ID lists them as "Unavailable." If they were a legitimate firm, they would list their company name and phone number on Caller Id. Other research firms that have contacted us have done just that.
When the telemarketer "researcher" from OTR calls, an attempt to extract information from them is met with resistance. In the two calls from this company I received this weekend, I was told that they were not allowed to give out the company phone number or address. All I was told was the company name, and that they were located in Palm Bay, Florida. When I was asked for a copy of the company's privacy and do-not-call policy, I was hung up on.
When you participate with surveys, you have no method of knowing what will be done with your personal and private information. For example, let's say you answer questions in a political survey. You do not know if as a result, your name, phone number, and address will be sold to telemarketers that will in turn, call you incessantly. They can get away with this under the guise of having done business with you before, based on your survey participation.
Fight back people! Do not accept phone calls from suspect "research" firms that skirt the do-not-call laws! Challenge the callers with direct questions, such as what is the name of the firm, their phone number, address, and most importantly, THE NAME OF THE COMPANY THAT IS PAYING THEM TO PERFORM THEIR RESEARCH!
My own research discovered that OTR is the "sister" company of "Global Marketing Research Services" according to their website: www.polling.net.
Here is the address of GMRS, and presumably OTR:
712 East New Haven Ave.
Melbourne, Florida 32935
There are several alternate addresses as well:
OTR also has a listing of:
809 Palmetto Ave
Melbourne, FL 32901
In the February 9, 2005 annual filing with the Florida Department of State, OTR listed its address at:
517 Bahama Drive
Indian Harbour Beach, FL 32937
and a mailing address of:
P.O. Box 880
Melbourne, FL 32902
This post office box was also listed as the mailing address of GMRS in a January 16, 2008 filing.
The "current" registered agent of OTR is listed as:
517 Bahama Drive
Indian Harbour Beach, FL 32937
He is also listed as a company officer and director.
The "new" registered agent of OTR is listed as:
Anthony J. Diana
P.O. Box 880
Melbourne, FL 32902
GMRS has listed Anthony J. Diana as not only the registered agent, but the officer and director as well:
Anthony J. Diana
754 Hunan St. NE
Palm Bay, FL 32907
A search for "Anthony J. Diana" in the Florida Department of State web site lists about 16 businesses, all with the same addresses as above. A search for Peter Bakolia lists 14 businesses.
They called again.... this time someone was on the line. She said she was from (don't know if spelling is correct) Calamotta Research... could be Kalamotta.... could be Kala Motta. I'm trying to find a research organization that matches this name on Google with NO luck.
I say we call them back and cuss them out !!!
Yea these people are **** they call all the time !!
ANNOYING. They call during odd hours during the day, night, weekday and weekends! They will not stop calling me! They do not leave a recording or anything else.
These people call 3 or 4 times a day and refuse to stop calling! I am sick of it! I do not answer the phone and they hang up when the answering machine goes on. They call early day, mid day night and weekends!
This phone number is frustrating. I got numerous calls from them with no voicemail or anything. Based on what others are saying, this must be a spammer.
Numerous calls, no messages
Keeps calling with out leaving any messages
Says toll free on caller i.d., won't stop calling.
Do like I do, pee on them. Just pick up and hang up immediately.
It is not a research it's a SCAM, if you bite. Annoring pests!
Continuous calls for days now
They call several times a day, sometimes several times in an hour. I'm disabled and by the time I get to the phone they hang up. This has been going on for weeks, and it is seriously annoying.
says 800 service on caller id,will not leave message.iwill not answer unknown numbers.
Keeps calling and no one on other end.
Calls keep coming right after another.
800-251-5850 keeps calling. Usually after 9PM EST.Can here background noise, usually someone talking to some else, almost like the caller isn't awareI have answered.Am on the do not call list ...

I hope they'll stop calling now, I just reported them to the FCC (http://esupport.fcc.gov/complaints.htm)
Calling several times a day for a week now. I want them to stop calling.
They keep calling and no one is there when I answer.
They said they are on subject to the laws, I am not convinced.
Been seeing a bunch of 800 numbers and this is one of them. Don't answer surveys either - sometimes we let our guard down believing it's just another J.D.Power Associates type survey and starting telling them more than what we should, like name of employer (start to call you at work), title, approximate annual earning (money in the bank), method of commute (own a car, check DMV records to track you down more), animals in the home (no guard dog, easy to clean your house empty of valuables), own or rent (check property tax records to find names of co-owners/signers) and a bunch of other seemingly details to profile you, the victim of identify theft and/or collection agents for your roommate's grand-uncle, etc.)
They called me at 9:07 PM to do a survey. When I asked for a manager, the caller reluctanly provided one after my insistance. He only gave me the name "Media Research" in Central Florida and would not say more then that. When I told him I was on the Federal Do Not Call List he said that did not apply to them since they are not selling anything. I reminded him it was after 9 PM and I had already put kids to bed for school tomorrow. He was very anxious to get off the line and offered to take me off the list as I tried to get more information about him.
This number has been calling every afternoon for the past few weeks. There is no one there when I answer. I have called back and it is a recorded message from a marketing/research survey group. I find this more irritating than when someone is actually there, whether they pronounce my name right or wrong.
This number keeps calling me, but there is never any person at the end of the line. They call at unreasonable hours and frankly are completely unwelcome. Because they are so discourteous, and do not leave any means by which to remove a number from their call list, I shall NEVER help them. In fact, I shall blacklist or boycott any person or business they name as a customer, as a matter of principle.
I have received calls onmy cell phone from this number 9* times in the last 72 hours. I have attempted to answer each time, but the caller hangs up before I get phone to my ear. If the number is called back, a message is played stating that it belongs to a political survey organization that is exempt from the Do Not Call Registry. If this is true,I would like to participate. Regardless of whether it is or not, the hang-ups are over the limit.
number called a few times ,, political servey .. said yes call back after nine, my idea , they never do ,, dont give them any info ,
Every time we answer the phone they hang up. We have had 2 hang up calls in the past 20 min.
called repeatedly and keeps calling at all hours
Calls several times a day on a daily basis. Leaves no message.
Calling several times a day, including several times after 9pm.
this number is call multiple times a day, never leaves a message.
Every day this number caqlls me, never leaves a message, if I answer; they hang up on me. trying to file a formal complaint with the FCC.
we got a call from this number today. We did not answered.
I get up to three calls daily and no is there and no message is left when my answering machine picks up. It's very annoying!!!!!!
Received the first call an hour ago. She asked to speak to the man or woman of the house. I said No, because we were on the Do Not Call list. She said that she would call back when I had learned how to speak to people! I said "*#&(%*&#)@" and hung up. Got the 2nd call just now.
We recieved this call number daily. Called back and got a recording.
I don't need roofing or siding from you. Please don't call means you too!!
3 calls today. I answer and wait, about 20 seconds later there is a click and a disconnect.
Got a letter in the mail a few days ago from Arbitron survey wanting me to participate in a survey. Even though I called the number listed on the letter to let them know that I DID NOT want to participate, my phone has been ringing for five days, three times a day. It rings three times and they hang up. They have called as late as 9:30. There has to be something that we can do! Even though they might be a survey company, they need to be held responsible.
calls at least 5x per day. Won't answer for me, everytime I pick up they've already hung up. On the Do not call list already!
They frequently call and never leave a message. I have Comcast, and I put the number in my Call Screening list. That should block them.
Daily frequent late evening calls and then hangs up!!!! PLEASE STOP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
repeated calls from this number. all hangups. told caller that if they called again i would contact the attorney general. haven't heard from them in the last hour.
It's easy enough to say answer and ask to be taken off their list but on several occasions I answer and they hang up.
I don't have a clue as to the identity of the person(s) calling, but they do not leave a message with my answering machine. Getting very annoyed with this number. Is there a way of blocking particular numbers from ringing your phone? (Kind of like spam blockers)
14 calls today so far
I called 800-251-5850 back. It is a marketing/research group. they are not subject to the DO NOT CALL list because they are not selling anything; strictly surveys. they say to answer the phone and tell the interviewer to remove your number from their list.
On do not call list and keep getting calls from this number.
When I asked the lady to please take our number off the list she said ok and thought she ended the call but she did not disconnect... I was able to hear her comment "I knew she would do that, that stupid...oh well"
Phone rings, when I answer there is only a dial tone.
call, call, call, hang up, but can hear people talking. phone company should post who owns this number when they act this way.
this number keeps calling all hours of day and night
Got three calls from this number today, Just reported them to the Do Not call registry, Complaint accepted. Do the same,, Let the FTC deal with these people.

I have had 8 - 10 calls from these idiots today! It rings twice and they hang up. Sorry, but I don't wear skates and I am sure I don't want to answer it anyway since I tried to call back and get a recording that it is disconnected or no longer in service!!!
