Same crap, multiple daily calls. Blacklisted them on my Ooma, no more calls :-)
I continue to get calls from different numbers, when my answering machine picks up, there is a loud beeping noise that continues until I shut of the answering machine, they want money, it has now become harassment, they call my home about 6 times a day.
Just got a call from this # when I saw "Survey Sampling" I just answered and put the phone down
Call three times a day every dayfor the last week. Never leave a message and we are also on do not call list.
Have received at least 5 calls from this number in the last several days. I answered last night and was told it's a survey about several important matters for my area ... can I help them? I said I wasn't interested and hung up. Then what sounded like the same woman (foreign accent) just called again. I asked her if she would stop calling if I answered some of her questions at which point she said "I see that the quota for your gender has been filled but thank you very much for your time." It's downright creepy. Now I feel like they just need you to stay on the line long enough for them to ... what? Who knows anymore what someone can do over the phone. What a crazy world.
Called twice today (February 9, 2014). Didn't answer the first time; second time I picked up receiver and then immediately hung it up. Caller ID says "Survey Sampling". I'm on the No Call list.

2:34pm (EST) - Did not answer.
6:10pm (EST) - Did answer: Woman with thick Middle Eastern accent with a lot of background noise of other people talking (call center) began survey by asking what my age was, how many people live in my home, if I have children, if I speak spanish, what different kinds of computer technology I use... PC, laptop, tablet, cell phone, etc... then asked if I'm affiliated with any political party, if I've ever attended a political protest, rally, city council meeting, if I've ever signed a petition (online or otherwise), and a slew of other like questions all of which I answered, "no". Then I was asked to answer on a scale of 1 to 10 how I would rate my personal health, if there are healthy alternatives to fast food within walking distance of my house, and so on... I would answer their questions starting with 1 and progressing to 10 and back to 1... 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1... continued doing this for the remainder of their questions before I lost all interest and hung up.
7:51pm (EST) - Wife answered and was hung up on.
9:04pm (EST) - Did not answer.

2:42pm (EST) - Did not answer.
When next they call back I will ask to speak to their supervisor and demand to be taken off their calling list... but I imagine I'll be hung up on as soon as I ask.
Just weird questions... weird.
"sampling survey" on the caller ID. If you have caller ID they make $ even if no one answers.
"survey sampling" on the caller ID. All they have to do is call numbers with caller ID to make money.
Same here. Asked for the youngest adult and proceeded into a 10 minute survey about my electronics. I hung up.
They were asking for me to answer questions for a survey.
Called after 9:00 PM (Caller ID says 9:11). Said they were with GFK. When I asked for contact information for GFK they hung up.
They have called two times in two days. Today so happens to be a Sunday and they still call. the caller id says Survey sampling.
Called 3 times asking for the oldest adult between 18 - 64.
I'm 62 and my husband is 65
They called and didn't leave a message. I've received calls from them before.
They just called my house here @ 9:07 pm, when I went to answer rheh wernt there
Caller ID says "Survey Sampling". Had one call today, two yesterday, last one at 8:45 pm. One of these survey people said they are exempt from the "Don't Call" list.
just the facts
A human called and assured me that it was not a sales call. She asked "am I talking to an adult that lives in this house hold". I said, "yes". She said, "again this isn't a sales call I just want to ask your opinions about a few things. Is that ok". I said, "no" and hung up.
I prefer when I come to 800notes.com to see something saying who the caller was instead of a list of people saying a number called a dozen times and that they didn't answer it--which doesn't tell me squat. People act like if they don't know the number they can't answer the phone. Has anyone ever considered it might be their long lost aunt Martha's attorney calling to say you were mentioned in the will?
Anyway, I try to leave info on who the caller claims to be and what they want. But I'm not going to stay on the phone long trying to figure it out when it's obvious it's a junk call.
These people called me at 7:08 pm on 10/19, which I discovered on my caller ID. Then they called again at 4:45 on the 20th, Sunday. The woman identified the company as GFK (or something to that effect) and asked to speak with an adult in the household. (Apparently, at 48 years old, I didn't sound adult enough. Should I be flattered?) When I inquired as to what is GFK, she started telling me it was a survey-taking company... and I promptly told her, "Not interested. Do not call again." and hung up. I know surveys are exempt from the DNC list but they are so bloody annoying! I swear, ever since the DNC list came about, there has been an incredible rise in "survey companies." I suspect only a few of them are legit and the others are companies trying to find ways around the DNC list.
Surveys are exempt from the DNC list - unfortunately. There should be a separate survey DNC list. Grrr!
non vocal mama
Called here 2-3 times yesterday and today. Caller ID says Survey Sampling. I never answered.
Called today, 9/28/2013, and it's a survey company. The name was something like MGK

Called at 8:16 p.m. a company called GfK services. Date august 23, 2013. Filing a complaint.
How do I get them to stop calling me?
This is some clinical trial company that wanted me to do a survey. They called me after 9:00 PM at night on a Sunday. I did not comply and do their survey and do not appreciate any company that would call that late. When you have kids that you are trying to get to bed, etc.
This number called everyday even Sunday evening, but no message.
I have received SEVEN calls from these morons in 3 days. I call back and get a fast busy. No idea who they are or what they want.
Have been getting this call for 4 days. No message left... have no idea what they want.
