We have been receiving calls daily for at least a week from "Pub Interest Co". I filled this form out that another person had posted on whocallsme. I hope this resolves it.
I received this call on my landline phone. No message left.
This group is an illegal entity, they violate FTC and FCC Rules and Laws, they are a SCAM!

I have made this comment before in this forum, but it always bears repeating. Many telemarketeers claim to be soliciting donations for reputable charities. Do not give money to them. They are scams.
I too am on the do not call list and yet this outfit keeps calling and NEVER leaves a mesage. I have begun to answre as "CITY MORGUE" and when they asked for me, I answered---"well if she's here she's dead and can't accept your call". The lady chuckled and apologized for the wrong number. If nothing else, it put her off.
It never stops. The calls come in through out the day and evening. What are they hoping to accomplish. Do they think that if they harass me long enough I will pay them money to stop. I have caller ID. I do not answer the phone if I do not know who is calling, but if your expecting a call you have drop what your doing and go to the phone to check the ID. I don't know why they are doing this but common sense should tell them telephone harassment is an inexcusable way to go about it. How I long for the days when the phone rang you could pick it up and say "hello" without worrying what pushy person or scam artist is on the other end of the line.
I started getting calls from this number. I just blocked it, but I need to report it. I assume that blocking it will not stop it.
This company or whoever it is is most annoying with their calls. Constant!
Pub Interest Co. I want them to stop calling. NOT INTERESTED.
Get a call......no one talks, and you get PUB Interest Co on the ID. Why doesn't anyone prosecute these phone terrorists?
This number has called me three times in the past three days. They never leave a message. I have a warning on my voicemail greeting that my number is on the do not call list and does not accept telemarketing calls. That does not seem to dissuade them, because they keep calling.
Calling incessantly, always a dead air. Getting f'ing sick of it.
Despite "Do Not Call" listing continue to receive calls from this number.
Charities are not subject to the do not call list
Received a call today from Pub Interest Co. Found you can request to have your name removed from their call list if you go to
Hopefully submitting the form to have your name removed actually works.
gotta be dumb a**** as who would pick up a number they don't recgonize
This number keeps calling for stupid surveys! One was on voting the other time I actually answered it was for grocery shopping! So rediculous! I have even asked to be removed from there list directly even though I am on no call list! They still call!
12 calls in 8 days from "Salt Lake, UT" caller ID (7/12, 7/12, 7/13, 7/16, 7/16, 7/17, 7/17, 7/17, 7/18, 7/18, 7/19, 7/19). IF these really are legit donation calls, why do they hang up if you answer -- and why do they let the rest of the calls go to answering machine, listen to the full message and then immediately hang up. Do they get more money for each call if they can say the call resulted in some kind of response? And why be so sleezy as to list a non-descript caller ID rather than the name of their company when they know so many people won't answer the phone anyway if the caller won't be up-front with a name? Incidentally, my answering machine message says that if the call is for donations, politics or surveys to please contact us by mail; otherwise, the caller is prompted to leave their name and number so we can return the call. Now I've got to lengthen the "if ..." message to add "please hang up" also. Must be the caller, or robo-caller, doesn't know what "donation" means. As senior citizens, we cannot run in from outside when the phone rings, get out of the chair quickly, stop the vacuum cleaner, etc., etc. just to answer calls we don't want from extremely rude companies. If I ever find out that any of the charities we donate to hire this firm, I'll never donate again! EVER! Let this be a wake-up message to charities to be careful who they hire for marketing, and to set up a dummy number that they know will sound like a potential citizen, so they can check out how the company does business. The government, as well as phone companies, need to track down this scam. And Congress, the public keeps repeating the message: do something about intrusive calls. The Do Not Call list is not working. And why are 800 numbers, politicians and charities exampt?
if they get lists from charities, where do the *charities* get the list? I'm not on any list.
I have asked to be taken off of their list several times but they insist on calling daily. I know we are asked to be polite and understanding, BUT, harassment is just that. Legally after the third call it is considered harassment. and I am personally getting real tired of it......
I have repeatedly called them back and asked to be taken off of their call list. Several times I even got to spoke to a real human, who was polite. Yet I still get about three of these calls a day.
Once I tried to fool them by acting dumb, telling them I was going to get my credit card, and then I just put down the phone and read a book. But this must happen to them often, because they hung up after half a minute.
Smarter then most
I have comcast for my home phone service. I can log on to my account and change my preferances under the call screening. I can block up to 12 numbers and this number is one of them. Once I block them they will hear that this subscriber is not accepting calls at this time. On my cell phone I use Sprint, and when I log on to my account, I can block up to 99 numbers for calls and texts.
If you are tired of getting these calls and your efforts to take your name off the do not call lists fail, just block their number and your phone does not ring anymore.
I'm amazed looking over these posts how far back these jackal's calls have been going on. Not a day goes by that I don't see PUB INTEREST CO on my caller ID. Given the length of time they've been p***ing people off, I would have thought they'd have been drummed out of the country by now.
I just discovered that, as a Verizon FiOS Digital Voice subscriber, I can block up to ten inbound callers from https://www36.verizon.com/FiOSVoice/members/CallFeatures.aspx.
I don't work for Verizon; I'm just passing along this discovery to anyone else with the same service wanting to block calls.
why havent these f****ards been sued yet?! my idiot drunk of a so called parent woke me up at 8 am saying "oh it. could be a job" and she knows who they are. and i looked at that caller id and i was so fucjing enraged and i still am. those stalker a***oles need to be shut down i know i really hate having to be woken at 8 am after i couldnt sleep till 3 just for some spam. sue them and give me back my f****n privacy and freedom to sleep

THIS ORGANIZATION CALLS MY HOME SIX/SEVEN TIMES A DAY. I HAVE DONE EVERYTHING I CAN TO STOP IT. IT IS AWFUL.
I am handicapped and would not like to receive these unnecessary calls ,especially when they are not important.perhaps should be reported to police department
This was a fundraising call for public TV/radio station WETA in the D.C. area. I'm sure this organization is contracted to raise money for various charities or non-profits around the country, so the reason for the call you receive may be different. If you have a relation with the entity that's trying to raise money, can they not call you?
This is affiliated with AOPA and I'm not impressed.
