If you are getting calls from this number simply pick up the phone and ask them to put you on the do not call list. Ignoring the calls will only make it look like to them that you are too busy to answer at that time so they call up to 15 times in a few weeks. The ratings are done 4 times a year and if you live in an area where not a lot of people get selected they will keep calling. Nielsen is a research company and the national do not call list is only for telemarketers. Nielsen does not try to harass you, they are allowed to call that many times. Trust me the people at Nielsen do not mean to upset you or interrupt your household they are simply trying to gather your option on TV. And remember the people that call your home are REAL people just trying to do research and just trying to do their job... They don't make the rules and they don't even dial your number.. It is an autodialer on a computer so next time you pick up the phone and think about being rude to them by blowing an air horn in their ear or cursing them out think about if someone treated you in that way for just doing your job. So like I said before just simply ask them to put you on the do not call list if you want them to stop calling.. Ignoring their calls will not make them go away. If you are getting calls where you are picking up and someone is hanging up on you 2 to 3 times a week I'm sure that is a scam and is not Nielsen. And Nielsen does not leave answering machines most of the time so don't bother waiting for one.
SUnday 6:50pm calls with no message - Bums
Get at least 10 calls a day from this number
Dies anyone know a site where I can find a location of this place?! A friend went to start her first day of work and has not cane home and is not answering any phone calls or messages and the family is very worried!!! Plz any info will be greatly appreciated!
Nielsen Ratings responds very quickly to the BBB complaints. We are hopefully removed from their list - they "put our number on their DNC spreadsheet". I found a very important information complaining to the BBB and receiving and info from the Nielsen Ratings. They have our number on file since we canceled Direct TV and started bugging us right after we canceled the DishNetwork. THIS CONFIRMS my suspicion if you cancel a satellite service, you become their victim.
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.
Keep getting daily calls from 813-366-9800. Would like the DAILY calls to stop. Thank you!
While you didn't stop calling and now use "Out of Area" blocked phone number to get hold of u;, you were reported to the FCC again - more information was added to the file.
How dare you send us cards "Thank you for being a Nielsen TV rating household!" ? We didn't pick up one of your 4 weeks daily annoying phone calls; we didn't opt in for anything.
A BBB complaint is following.
You make money out of the surveys, you are as bad as telemarketers.
This is true
These people keep calling my house every night after 8pm CST and I find missed calls from them during the day. I've talked to them twice and told them not to call me anymore. I have no interest in any survey or anyone who I don't know calling me constantly after I have already told them I'm not interested.
They have called my number 15 times since April 1st. I have been on the no call list since last October 2013,
You were just reported to the FTC!
They call every single day at a different times each time for almost two weeks now. VERY ANOYING. I did not ask to be "lucky to be a part of some survey" I did not give you my name, address and especially not phone number. HOW did you get it when it is not published for over 20 years? You are violating my private rights and you were just reported to the FTC!
Really? Am I really LUCKY to receive their harrassing phone calls each day? Every day at a different time? A post card ahead?
How in a world did they get my address, name, and a phone number? I am non-published, not listed on the internet!
Only one thing I know I did couple of weeks ago, that most likely triggered these so called survey call: I finally canceled my DishNetwork service after being with them for over 7 years and no loyal customer discounts. Instead of that they raised their price up each month by $5 or $10. So I canceled and said the truth, too pricey, nothing to watch anymore, even though I was paying $110/month for their stripped down local TV broadcast. Just get an antenna if you can and you will see what the satellite companies are doing, not speaking about the 480 resolution instead of the 1080 or 720 broadcasted resolution.
I am really tired of being harrassed by these people survy or no survey
Wow. 23 pages about this phone number as of this date. Take my tip: If they ever want to get a survey of something, tell them to watch "Family Feud". Survey says....
I too considered after receiving a post card and then calls...is this legit? I ask myself why these great phisher's of men, would want a small fish like me. So, I threw out my net, on Google of course. Another great phisher by the way, like facebook, and .... so many, many others, and caught some information all the loyal TV families need to know. Maybe The Nielson TV Ratings Company, once cared about what type of decent shows families are watching. Including all the ideals of why that is still worthy of admiration. However, they are a Company for profit...follow the money! Their business is to gather your likes, and dislikes, what shows, what people, and when you're tuned in. Then they sell this information to companies for optimum marketing of their products. Check them out for yourself....http://www.nielsen.com/us/en/nielsen-solutions.html .... They've got the real solutions to help your business grow =/ .... Unfortunate so many companies fall through the loop hole of Surveyors, and have for years. Maybe if they were a, not for profit company. Those Nelson's sure are great phishers, making money with every sucker they catch.... >*>>~<
YOUR WRONG I DID NOT FILL OUT A SURVEY,YET THEY KEEP CALLING..I'M SICK OF IT AND I DON'T WATCH T.V.
I WONT THEM TO STOP CALLING ME
The REALLY stupid folks are the ones that reply to a post that is nearly 10 months old. I would imagine he has been holding his breath all this time ,waiting for your intelligent, and well written, reply--what a doopa !!
What a dumb-a^^ Stupid reply!... Are you over the age of 12?!!! This has been going on for 30, nay 40 years!!!
Wait for-it,...wait for-it.... after 36 hrs can't sleep, some... Dip-sh*t wants to call you on their Idea of a schedule?!!!
Grow the f*ck-up.... There is more to life than your little f*ckin ideology!....
Got this phone # before calling me but I did not answer.
I have been getting calls from them ever since I got a home phone. I never answer these calls. It rings about 3 times and goes to voice mail and sometimes they leave a very short message something I can't understand.
I actually contacted Comcast and requested they be blocked from calling me in the future... so we will see if this works.
this # 8133669800 calls about 5 to 6 times a day they call at 10pm the name comes up is Nielsen ratings
This number is a Nielsen rating number, and a legitimate one. They wanted to send me a tv survey in the mail. I let them, and it came with $30 cash in return. No harm in ppl who call from this number whatsoever.
This number DOES belong to Nielsen Ratings. Our family has been a "Nielsen Family" for over 11 years. They give small monetary rewards for the surveys - usually between $5-10 depending on the number of questions. I guarantee you if you answer and tell them you don't want to be contacted any further - They WILL stop calling. There are people on waiting lists trying to become active in the Nielsen ratings. If you are being called it's because someone in your household either participated in a survey on-line, in a grocery store, with or at your cable company or in a fast food restaurant. They don't make "computer calls" or use automatic dialers. They have received your info from a reliable source. I honestly don't understand so much hostility over a phone call? But maybe some people just go through life being angry about small things. Being a 2x cancer survivor maybe I have a different outlook on what's important in life and don't let an unwanted call upset my fruit cart. Different strokes....... I know we enjoy being a Nielsen family and were rewarded last year with a Stainless Steel LG front loading Washer/Dryer Machine valued at $2,400.00! NOT a Washing Machine AND a separate Dryer - It's 1 machine that washes AND drys. Through the years we have chosen (from a points based catalog we get annually) cameras, jewelry, household goods, a golf bag, a Calloway "Big Bertha" Driver (a type of golf club), and a $2,800.00 voucher and over $500.00 in discount coupons for a Disney World vacation. We spent a total of $146.00 out of pocket for 4 people at Disney's Grand Floridian Hotel for 5 days! And, the majority of the $146.00......were tips to Waitresses, Valets, etc! So, trust me! Nielsen doesn't want to bother you or waste their own time. There TRUELY are people on waiting lists to be contacted. All you have to do is take 30 seconds to answer your phone and say "I don't wish to participate or be contacted again in the future" Your name will be removed from their contact list and some other lucky person will be elated to get the opportunity to participate!
A happy Nielsen participant!
Lord, thank you for everyday I'm blessed with the joy of a new day, another chance to see my loved ones smiling faces and the opportunity to make a difference to someone less fortunate than myself.
you DID ask for everyone's opinion or you wouldn't have left your big a** reply to begin with --get real, dog.
Joe, you sound like my ex. That's why he's my ex. Talk about getting upset, listen to yourself. This is a forum for people to discuss experiences with unwanted phone calls, not to listen to soap box preachers like you who are no better than the people you are lashing out at. Remember , every time you point a finger, there are 3 other fingers pointing right back at you!
