Nielsen TV ratings. Not spam call them back if you miss it
They call me 3-4 times a day, 9pm-8am-5pm, I filled a complaint many time with DO-NOT-CALL.COM we will see what happens , so far it's been a month and these one of a kind don't give up bothering citizens.
a little shady, never mailed back and some how they got a hold of my number. -cell phone-
Nielson TV ratings. Not spam/telemarketer.
Nelson TV guide, they call to follow up after survey.
Did not leave mssg
Calls claiming I signed up for something I never did. Another Obama survey. Don't answer any survey it just tells politicians how to manipulate you and what lies to tell you so they can control you.
free money for surveys
Who hates free money?
Did a simple over the phone survey, and they sent me $10 first then a week later $30. Called again today and said a simple booklet would be sent to fill out and then will receive more money. Didn't have to give any other info besides answer questions about what I watch.
Called and didn't leave a message. Identified as Nielsen ratings.
Calls but no message
I received a survey book in the mail with a dollar. I never said I would do this. I threw it away. They called last night and I did not answer.
Saw my top spammer pop up did not answer they left no message
Hung up on me
Calls every other day. The decline button is rubbing off.
They call me constantly, and when I answer someone hangs up...everytime!!!
Perfectly find hitting the silent button on these nielson surveryors.
Calling my home phone. I don't answer.
get Mr number app just hangs up on them it tells u it hung up on someone then I looked it up on here
LOL if it's Nielson they sent my $2.00 to fill out things for 5 tvs
Calls every day!
Keeps calling about a survey
Same here, offer to do survey for a week, sent five, crispy one's and started calling same day I received my "Diary"
Called me at 11:00 on night! Really what happened to common sense people are sleeping at this hour of the night !
They call too much, even when you ask them to quit!
They never get tired of dialing my number, Damn machines.
Called repeatedly and when I never responded or answered they finally sent me a survey form to fill in for one week along with $5 for doing it. I have done this once in the past couple of years so did take the time to do it for one week however before the week was even up they were calling again and this time they left a message but I just ignored them as I was mailing the completed form in the next day. They are pests however and would like them to forget my number in the future.
Calling constantly. How long do they keep this up?
It is Sunday !!! Come on!
THANK YOU PETE, for telling everyone about the Panasonic phone system in your post below. If everyone did this, this would put these PESTS out of busy and they would have to find a real job instead of pestering everyone at their homes. I saw that this number 813-366-9800 is coming from TAMPA, Florida. I won't answer it anymore..
Makes calls repeatedly and lists it as "unknown caller"! There is a Panasonic phone system that can be programmed to reject calls that do not show their phone number, identification or both. Also this phone system can be programmed to reject follow up calls from the specific telephone number. I am going to purchase and program so that calls meeting my criteria will be rejected without my even hearing a ring.And this capability costs me nothing other than paying for caller identification.
Receiving these calls is ridiculous, but on Sundays? Have some respect.
several times daily. Disturbs rest of cancer patient, and upsets family. No mercy, and keep calling, even though we do not answer.
calls at 9PM
Several calls recently from this number, left no message. I am on Do Not Call list and don't answer any callers who don't identify themselves.
8 calls within the last 2 weeks
Calls several times a day! When I answer, they hang up! Not real happy right now!
Have gotten several calls:
My number has been on the Natinoal Do Not Call Registry:
for amost 5 years now and I continue to get these calls. I don't know who is calling bcz of my work schedule, so am unsure if it's a company or an individual stalking.
If there is any way to stop these calls, please do!!!
called the numbers as suggested by other 'complainers':
no one on line
called cell phone no name.
Please, no unsolicited phone calls at my home.
Why does the phone company allow "unknown name" "unknown number" when we pay for Caller ID. We should sue the phone company for a refund!
These guys need to be stopped. I have repeatedly told them I am not interested. That does not stop them. Apparently Nielsen thinks it is above the law.
have called twice a day (9 am and in the evening up to 9 pm), even on Sunday. Am on do not call list but this does not seem to matter to them. Will report them
Calls every day close to 9pm. have told them to stop calling every time
Neilsen called almost daily. Told them several times not interested. Later received mail from neilsen. Did not open envelope, reurned it "REFUSED".THEY STILL CALL EVERY DAy!!!!!
This number calls me all the time and up to 9 or 10 pm every day and as early as 8 am .The party or who ever it is never leaves a message on the answering machine either.This is getting obnoxious.
keep calling and hanging up once my answer machine picks up.
If the people calling have as much trouble interpreting English as I do Spanish, it's no wonder they don't understand the phrase "Take this number off your list". I'm fed up with this outfit.
Called and asked for a household member over age 18. I told him I would not participate in survey with personal questions. Then wanted the person whose birthday was last!Told him was not at home and then wanted a name so they could call back. Identified himself as from Nielson Ratings from Florida. Didn't I just say no personal questions?! My number unpublished and unlisted!
THIS ORGANIZATION CALLS A LOT AND DOESN'T LEAVE A MESSAGE. I'M ON THE DO NOT CALL LIST AND CAN'T UNDERSTAND WHY THEY ARE ALLOWED TO IGNORE THAT FACT. THEY CALL USING A NUMBER OF DIFFERENT TELEPHONE NUMBERS.
They want you to complete a survey, send it in the mail to you and they STILL keep calling everyday.
call and when answer don't talk back
Called the other number for these folks at
813-366-9800 calls constantly every day, no-one there. File a complaint with Verizon since they are my carrier too!
I am on a DO NOT CALL Registery. I do not accept telemarket calls.
Hi there,For anyone else who is getting annoying calls late at night from this company, I found another blog this 800 number to call and let the representative know that you would like to be taken off their list. I called it tonight and talked to a super sweet lady who was very apologetic and said she would have my number removed within 24 hours. We'll see if I get any more calls..but for anyone else who is being called nightly, try calling 800-237-8611 and ask to be removed from the list.
i've asked them to stop calling several times & they still call.
Calls several times per day, late at night & even on weekends. Don't answer the phone. Have an answering machine but don't leave message
calls several times a day
leaves no message
Received a call from this number for Nielsen ratings, but due to other paid surveys that I have taken in the past, I knew this was possible. I answered the questions and was paid for my time.
I keep getting the calls too... what the hell... Do Not Call list isn't working
Second time I have received this call. It is annoying.
Just who is Nielson Ratings catering to when they call a home in the United States of America and respond to Hello with a spanish version of their request for you to answer their questions?
Biased? I think so. And do the operators not know the difference between Hello and Hola? I think not. And why do you have to ask the person on the phone to repeat themselves because of the broken English they use? How are you to understand them to properly answer their questions?
And how correct are their 'surveys' when the person calling speaks broken English? Just how much of what you say do they really understand?
If you want my time, pay me. My time is valuable. And as a citizen of the United States of America, have someone who is familiar with the English language make the call.
I think they have a hidden agenda. And it is starting to show. And I for one am outraged.
For every call I get I will make 10. Until they stop. You can too. The number to call is
call all the time. finally answered, some guy was speaking spanish. Something about "television". Told him to take my name off his list and not call back. He just kept talking in spanish.
I am not currently nor have conducted business with Nielsen TV, Nielsen Media Research.
I have received both live calls and recorded message.
I have requested to be added to their do not call list and yet the calls persist.
I have listed complaints with the National Do Not Call Registry. However they do not resolve complaints. The complaints are added into a data base for law enforcement agencies to use if they choose.
I want them to go away!
This outfit passes all decency limits; calls to 8-9Pm; calls on Sunday; calls 4 - 6 times per day. I don't answer any calls from un-recognized numbers.
Received a call from this number, I don't pick up the phone for numbers I don't recognize... I'm on the national Do Not Call listing... so I'm wondering what's up.
They call over and over again even after I told them to stop calling me.
calls every day and curses
These people call me at least three times a day. I am a night worker. They wake me up constantly. This gas been going on for at least a month.
How do I stop them ?
I have no idea why these people are calling me up to 5 times a day. I don't have caller id, so I can't screen the calls. I can only check the number that has called me by pushing *69 to hear the number and it is always this same number. Sometimes, they don't say anything and then hang up.
they are calling me 3 and 4 times a day, this has been going on for at least 2 weeks. I want it stopped
Won't leave message
I don't even watch tv so I am no use to them but they won't stop calling.
They actually sent me a post card notifing me that they would be calling cause my hosehold was selected for this survey.THIS IS A BUSINESS AND NOT A HOUSEHOLD!
I have caller I.D and kept letting them call and wouldn't answer it, after a few weeks I couldn't take it anymore and answered the phone.Once they knew they called a business they appologized and hung up!
ANSWER THE PHONE "ABC PIZZA" or something like that AND SEE WHAT THEY SAY! What have you got to loose.
Keeps calling my number and will not leave a message. Stop calling!!
Used Anna's suggestion to call the Neilson Company at
My friend works there. It is Nielsen Tv Ratings and they are exempt from do not call lists because they do not sell anything. To be removed from the calling list you must say the magic words, "Take me off your list" almost any other response, including, "I'm on the do not call list" will generate a call back. You may also call
HOW DO I STOP THESE CALLS? I work nights therefore sleeping days and these idiots call all the time. I have yet to have anyone say anything to me.
Is there a do not call list?
They keep calling. They are getting on my nerves. DO NOT CALL!!!
I told them I was not interested. They keep calling anyway. Why?
Won't stop calling. Sometimes several times a day several days in a row for over a month now. We are on the do not call lists. How can they continue to do this and how can we effectively stop this?
Please stop calling my number!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It's Nielsen Ratings. They are legit. I thought it was a crud call but went ahead and answered it one day. They asked if we would write down what we'd watch on TV for a week. We said ok THEN they mentioned they'd pay us 30 dollars for doing it. Several days later, they sent us all the info we needed plus 30 dollars cash. We were expecting a check so the cash was a nice surprise. My opinion? The calls may be annoying it but answer it, agree to do the test and see if they say they'll pay you. It is worth the 30 bucks.
In addition, when I tried to call them back to finally give them a piece of my mind, the number that comes up on my caller id belongs to some poor guy named Jeff, who says he gets 10 to 20 of these calls every day. Seems from my area code (585), when you dial their #, you get somebody's residence. Sounds slighlty less than legal, yes?
This company calls me at the most inconvenient times!!! I've done nothing to solicit these calls, either. Besides the fact that I am on the DO NOT CALL list, I pay a monthly fee for my phone # to be private and unlisted! What the hell gives?
They call me 7 days a week, 5-10 times per day for the past 10 years. This has to be illegal and I want to sue for all their money. I am very upset.
This phone number, 813-366-9800, claiming to be "Nielsen Ratings", continuously calls my residence. I work 45 hours a week, and this is the last thing I need to come home to. I am on the "Do Not Call" list, and want this to stop! Now!
They call several times a day - 7 days a week up until 9 p.m. at night I'm on the DO NOT CALL list-
Nielsen Ratings has been calling me for about a month now and yesterday, they called three times. Yes, it is very irritating. I signed up to stop telemarketers from calling my number, but it doesn't seem to be working.
It's just flat out irritating
Calls and I don't answer; sometimes the caller id says Neilsen ratings and sometimes it is "Out of Area"
These people are calling me each and every weekday and not leaving a message and I have no idea as to who they are. The only information I do have is that the call is coming from Tampawst, FL and it is the NIELSEN COMPANY at 813-366-9800.
I have been through this before with other corps.FORGET what you have just read--it will NOT work.Only one thing works. Its takes a little while, but its worth it. First, do NOT answer the phone, for any reason. Do not let your answering machine answer it too.If you do the computer knows that your number is a up and running number. Thats all they want to know, so they keep calling you.If you have caller id like i do,you must disconnect your machine from answering the call completely, so it just keeps ringing. After a while, the computer red lines your "bad" number. It doesnt pay for them to keep calling you, it cost them money.They consider your number a dead number. It might take a week or so, but they will stop when its not cost effective for them. It worked like a charm for the other 5 crappy numbers. Go for it-do not answer, do not talk--period.
Said he was with Nielsen Ratings. I told the individual my household does not participate in ANY phone surveys. Caller stated it was not a survey or sales pitch. I inquired if he would be asking questions to which he stated yes. I then asked if he was stupid or if failed to understand that a survey consisted of questions. A long pause and I broke the silence by telling him I would gladly participate in his survey as long as he didn’t ask any question. He then hung up. Called several times afterwards and left no message.

The same number but different names on the caller ID. Will call in the afternoon or evening!
I told them not to call im on the list. I also said if you want my opinion you will have to pay me. My time is not given away to you to make money off of.
I receive calls every couple of days. The party leaves no message on ans. machine.
I don't want to be bothered. Please take me off your list to call.
They keep calling my number as well..last night it was 8:30..I never answer if a number appears that I don't recognize, don't care who they are or what they want. It's a bit annoying since I get up at 4:00 AM..not sure how to stop these calls....
This organization is harassing us
very annoying, hope it can be stopped
I'm on every opt out and do not call list I can think of. Nielsen Ratings is a for-profit ratings agency and a telemarketer go-between. They are not an exempt charitable or political organization and should not be calling me. Ever!
Please do not call me.
I have asked this company numerous times to remove us and stop calling but calls continue, most recently today at 913am - April 3, 2008
calls 2-4 times a day for the last 2 weeks up until past 8p....I'm on the Fl do not call list......when I answer they will hear a redneck vocabulary unfit for most
They are the TV ratings group. They'll pay you to do a week's worth of TV journaling, and they pay the return postage on the journals. We got paid when they sent us the material to do the surveys.
I have gotten this number several times as well and it shows up as UNKNOWN NAME and never leave a voice mail.
This number calls my house 4-6 times a day. Don't know who it is but it is long distance.
Called about 7 times in the last week! Leaves no message
Caller called and when I answered, they did not say anything and then hung up on me.
Caller stated she was from the Neilson TV Ratings. Wanted to know how many TV's we had and age of the household and adrress information and if we would fill out a survey. Other ph # provided 1-800-237-8611. Felt later this was a scam to set up a house robbery.
They keep calling but leave no message.VERY irritating!
4 times a day everyday and just now 7 times in a row, all being blocked as unknown caller the last time identifying themselves. Who on Earth needs me to do and interview for TV (which we do not watch) THAT badly?
Call every day now for a week, left no message. Caller ID says Unknown Caller
It showed up as nielen ratings on my caller id
nielsen sorry misspelled
called me. i didn't pick up. caller left no message.
