They tried to call me again. I didn't responded. They send me SMS asking me to send them my address so they can send me $15 check for participating in survey. Grrrrrr
Called me and told they are making survey for CITIBANK where I really have bank account. In the end of the survey asked me to spell my name and address. This is when I hang up. Maybe I'm too paranoic.
Got a call from this number last night. They wanted to conduct a survey on Citibank. I told them I was about to eat dinner and asked how long it would take. They said 30 minutes. A 30 minute survey? lol Get lost!!!
Called wanting to take a survey but it was 928 Eastern Standard Time which is against federal law
MSI West is a legitimate market research company. They never sell anything, they never "pass numbers around", they never share personal information. They are hired by their clients to conduct surveys. Some of their numbers come from the client themselves, in the case of Comcast or APS when they are conducting customer satisfaction surveys. Some of their numbers come from "sample houses" that sell phone numbers based on certain criteria. Some are RDD, which is Random Digit Dialing. Market Research companies are not covered by the Do Not Call law. When they ask personal questions such as birth date, income, race, that is so your responses are grouped with others but you do not ever have to answer those questions. It is not a scam.
ms. know it all
msi west is market research not telemarketing (they don't sell anything) therefor the do not calk list does not apply to them.
Stop calling me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
3rd party survey co. for COMCAST. Asked comcast to remove me from the MSI-West list. Awaiting reply
They, MSI-WEST, said they were coducting a survey on Comcast customer satisfaction with their service. At the end of the survey they attempted to secure my birth date; whether or not I was Hispanic and my family annual income. never gave them my personal information. It could be a scam.
I just got a call from this number too when I was out. They called at 8:00 am and didn't leave a message. I called the number back it was busy then called back again and it rang and rang. So I called the number another person showed on here to call and when I pressed 0 for the operator they hung up on me so I couldn't tell them to take me off the list. Geez, so much for paying to have my land line number private
Continuous calls and leave no messages. Very annoying!!
I would like for these people to stop playing games. Stop calling asking for someone and tjen hanging up. If this is any type of bussiness, they are completly unprofessional.
Got a call showing MSI West - several actually- but never picked up. I'm glad I didn't. All it takes is doing one of those surveys and they will pass your number around to other such firms.
For those who think filing a complaint at the DNC site does anything- it DOESN"T! Read the fine print! It says essentially that complaints are not reviewed unless a company is under investigation and then they MAY look at DNC complaints. Almost everybody has gotten calls from Card Holder Services. They operated with impunity concerning the DNC registry for a decade or more and there are thousands of complaints against them. Nobody ever did anything about it. Only recently when it was made a crime (in the US) to fake a phone number or identity have they stopped calling, at least calling pretending to be someone else.
Am I the only one who thinks it's ironic that the "Stop NCO" ad at the top of the page is actually NCO?
repeated phone calls ...do not leave message find it very annoying as i have handicapped daughter that tries to get to phone to answer harrassment
Calls, asks for someone, and hangs up
The only way anyone is going to stop these types of calls is to find out their Congressional Representatives' private unlisted phone numbers, and then forward all of these calls to them.
If they were receiving unwanted telemarketer calls 24/7, they would change the rules real fast.
Comcast is who called me
Caller rang three times and hung up. Caller ID said MSI-West with above number. I never answer numbers I don't recognize. I figure they can leave a message if legit. I can call right back. No message left here.
Got called by this number. Picked up, and it hung up immediately I called back, and it rang for 3 minutes before I hung up.
why do i keep getting these calls? i have to block them every 90 days....can't someone do something?
Just received a call from 562-864-8160. I did not answer.
I do not answer anyone I do not know.

I received a call from this company last night. I didn't answer but see that they are a marketing co. I am on the do not call list. How did they get my phone number and how do I stop them from calling?
is a marketing research Co. left no msg
If you responded to an ad consumer paper product study they are just calling you back to see if you qualify. The person you should ask for when calling back should be Cheryl. It's not comcast.
This company recruits people for paid consumer studies. I've done several of them so it's not a scam it's actually a real company that pays you cash for your in person opinion. I got a call from them again yesterday and I'm going in tomorrow to make some quick cash for my opinion on paper products.
Just noticed I had missed the mystery call from this number. Its funny that some folks say it is associated with Comcast. At about the same time the call came, I was deleting all the Comcast internet crap off my computer. haha
I received a call from this # on my cell phone. My phone said "Norwalk CA" and since I don't know anyone from there I didn't answer it. No message was left. Reverse phone search says it's a landline.
I just got a call from this number. The caller identified herself as calling from MSI West and said she was doing a survey for Comcast. I told her I wasn't interested and hung up. Who does cold-calling phone surveys any more? That's annoying as hell. Thanks, Comcast!
MSI-West. She, representing herself as working for COMCAST Cable, called and ask a few general question in which I didn't say yes or no to. Zip code. Am I the person in the household that makes decisions about removing service. I told her I was the only person in my household. Was it my decision to cancel my COMCAST service or did COMCAST remove the service. I said neither. I downgraded not removed. What is my year of birth? I don't think you need to know that information. Her computer broke at that point and would have to call me back. I called COMCAST. They said they don't employ MSI-West to do ANY surveys for them. This is a SCAM in my opinion. Don't answer anything and tell them to stop calling.
This "MSI-WEST" has been calling my home phone four times this past month & don't leave any message. I tried calling back but nobody's answering on the other side.
