I answered the call, even though it was SUNDAY, because it showed 'University'... thinking another college was trying to get my senior class daughter into schooling.
The man answered with "Hello, I'm calling from Quinnipiac University, and we're conducting a poll..."
To which I said, "No thanks", and promptly hung up.
It is the lizard people trying to get me to join the Illuminati. Ummmm......no. I like my beer too much.
Ummm, Jessica...Shut up!!
some kind of survey ??? Quinnepiac Univ
"Dominoes Pizza, can I help you?" worked for me too. The caller said, "Oh, I'm sorry, I have the wrong number".
Hi y'all, they have like called me two or three times a day for the last week. I like most get the Quinnipac University whatever it is called as caller ID. I ignore the calls and I made this entry just to have a more current entry on this number. I do not do surveys for I have doubts they take the information accurately anyway. Maybe if the questions are asked by an automated system, that might be harder to change the answers. Blessed Spring 2014 to y'all!
They called me twice yesterday, the last time at 8:52 p.m. That is way too late to be calling someone.
These calls are from the Polling Institute @ Quinnipiac University. Frequently cited by New York Times, The Washington Post, USA Today, The Wall Street Journal and on national network news broadcasts, in addition used by public officials and researchers, the independent Quinnipiac University Poll regularly surveys residents in Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Iowa, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and nationwide about political races, state and national elections, and issues of public concern, such as schools, taxes, transportation, municipal services and the environment.
If you do not wish to participate, contact The Polling Institute at 203-582-5201 or email@example.com and asked to be removed from their program.
WHO Gave the #
They want me to submit to a survey and dont give me a chance to say NO THANK YOU
Message said, "My name is Anthony and I'm with Quinnipiac University and we are calling to conduct a poll. Sorry we missed you and would try again later." Came up on Caller ID as follows:
Just got a call fomr this number myself and I just got my new prepaid cell on monday so I would not get these bull calls anymore. I called the number they gave to remove me from their list and told them i have no clue where they got my number but they best not call me again and remove me.
Tell me what good does a survey do? Does it change anyone mind in Washington D.C. ? Does it change the minds of any particular party?
I don't know these people. I never asked for them to contact me. I really have no need to give them any information, they are not entitled to it. I don't own them anything for me to feel guilty in giving my information. They are invading my privacy and wasting my time which I do value. They called 2x in less than an hour when I didn't answer the first time.
What I hate are places like this using names that make them look more official or important or more benign in nature.
I am on a do-not-call list and would like to report this number as a scam.
Not exactly true. I have answered and THEY hung up! Called them back and got the recorded message they are from Quinnipiac University Polling Institute and they will likely call again soon unless we call to let them know we leave our number with them at: 203-582-5201. When I called THAT number, they did not identify as Quinnipiac, and then they hung up. That's twice. I called right back and got the same person and I told them they just hung up on me and she didn't identify herself as Quinnipiac. She ,said she had but didn't hear anything so she hung up.and kept talking over me. Again asked her to identify who she was calling for. She told me she already had, but now she gave the whole Quinnipiac name and continued to talk over me even as I tried giving her my number while she calmly repeated "if you would just give me your number..."Then she hung up. Again. Called back and she answered for the third time "POLLING CENTER", as now I can understand her. Finally SCREAMED my number. I was NOT cool. What kind of poll results do they get? I am happy someone responded to your request so easily, but obviously that is not always the case. Save your judgements about what is rude and aggressive.
I called the number listed above (203) 582-5201 and supposedly they took me off the list. A national survey doing random number calling is what they said.
called my cell phone! I wish I knew who gave them the cell phone number! On a Saturday morning of all times.
They just called my cell phone. It's on the no call list.
For all you out there-This is from 800-notes an online sheet music company. They call but never leave a message.
Been getting calls from this number every day & night.. I would like it BLOCKED.. thanks
203-582-3050 called my cell phone. I do not respond calls from people whom I did not give them my phone number.
Stop calling me. Take me off your list, I am not interested in anything you have to say. I don't take surveys or patronize telemarketers......ever.
QUINNIPIAC UNIV on caller ID. FAKE NAME
Don't know how they got my UNLISTED #.
these people have called me 2x in 3 hours and it is really getting annoying. I have to focus on my schoolwork, I have a monologue to memorize by tomorrow and these stupid people are calling.
Unknown call from 203..582..3050
No calling cell phones using up minutes is unacceptable...ALL politics aside...look them up before you answer, call back if you feel the need to spend.
called 815 pm sunday night calls at 8am every morning! sick of this! how can i stop this??
Tired of QU calls
I have asked them to stop calling me twice. The calls keep coming. Surveyors may be exempt from the
no-call list, but I doubt they are exempt from telephone harassment laws. Following is some contact information for the Executive Director of QU Polling Institute. Perhaps contacting him will help those of us whom they keep calling after being asked not to. If that doesn't work, keep a log of when they call you, get the name of the caller if you can, and then give that information to your local law enforcement agency as well as QU's local law enforcement agency.
