Caller states that they are working with Centers for Disease Control (but didn't understand when I said "the CDC?") Wanted to have a 2 hour interview in home with children 3-17...um no thanks.
These people have called numerous times... I have told them NOT to call numerous times... I told them that I am registered on the "Do Not Call List"... When I received the call yesterday and explained the above, I asked name, phone number, company etc and told "Latarsh Horton" that my attorney needed the information to file a harassment lawsuit... She promised me that she would talk to her supervisor about removing my number....
If you are willing to take survey, they will keep calling you and asking to do a follow up. I did that in 2008 and they still called and called and called. Guess the info I gave didn't match the research "Goals" Asking the same question a different way over and over till you say it the way the researcher need it isnt the best research practises.
(614) 247-8831 Ohio State | Office of Research Compliance
This is a Compliance problem!
RTI isn't following the guildlines!!
If you tell them to stop calling and they call back at later time/date file in writing to Office of Research Compliance
They are being pay with our Taxes!!!
Keep an eye on your kids, State of Ohio /OMAS/OSU/RTI thinks it is O.K. to ask them to take the survey!!! Are they NUTS!!!!
This number called and her name is Ms. Kirkpatrick and she is conducting a survey about health care in Ohio. I told her to remove my number and she said they do not have a way to remove my number but she would make a note not to call. Yeah right that will happen!!!
This number called my cell phone at 8:05pm. They left a one second message where somebody sighed. I am on the do not call list. I do not answer calls from numbers I do not recognize. I do live in Ohio so I believe it's the survey people listed above.
I really don't care if they are "legit" or not. The calls are NOT welcomed, and are a NUISANCE. If they really want to know my opinion, they are a pain in the A$$.
855-500-1438 THIS IS A NUMBER FOR "THE NATIONAL HEALTH SURVEY!
I WANT THE CALLS TO STOP!
1-855-500-1438 THIS NUMBER KEEPS CALLING ME? NO ONE ANSWERS THE PHONE!
these people keep calling I will find these people !!!!
Caller identifies themselves as a representative of State of Ohio. doing health care survey. wants to know if my # is home or cell, my answer, "none of your damn business" They start asking personal questions that i would never answer to a complete stranger. this starts out as a survey but ends up being someone fishing for personal info for telemarketer purposes. Only discuss your health care with your family and doctor and your own insurance company. Never with an unidentified calller. file a complaint with the feds at DONOTCALL.GOV . only takes a minute to file a complaint. everyone should do this so they can be fined out the wazoo.
I don't think it matters how many times you ask them to stop calling, they just keep right on calling. Everyone is on the Do Not Call List but it doesn't stop any of these places. I have received a call every day for the last few days from these people and sometimes more than just one call. I don't think they are who they say they are. If they are calling for the State of Ohio, they need to stop. I rarely answer my phone these days and they never leave a message.
They call here constantly over and over but don't leave a message. I refuse to answer the calls and sometimes I just pick up the receiver and drop it back down just to break the connection. I don't think this place has anything to do with the State of Ohio but if they do, someone needs to shut them down. The Do Not Call Registry doesn't work.
I keep getting those calls too, several times a week and they are annoying. I picked up the phone this morning to tell them that I am on the gov do not call list and to stop calling, and Jasmine said because they are a state of Ohio agency for state surveys not telemarketing, the DNC list does not apply to them (whom...), but she would make a note that we prefer not to be called but couldn't guarantee anything (nice...). If they call again, I am going to ask for their official business name and address so I can file a formal complaint with the state of Ohio. This is a form of harassment and invasion of privacy as far as I am concerned, especially after you have told them numerous times to stop calling and they continue to call anyway.
They just keep calling, there is no end to these people. National Do Not Call Registry is no help and there are more calls now than before it was started. I broke the connection without answering the call. They are not who they want you to think they are, another scam just after information.
I have been receiving calls from this number. Up until today when they called I ignored them. Today I answered and was given the information that this survey is being done by RTI International who was hired by the Ohio State Government to take this survey. I was given the number for the State Representative in charge of the survey (1-888-643-7787 Don Reed Ohio Family Health Survey, Ohio Department of Health).
The Lady explained that the survey was simply a research study and RTI was hired to do the brunt work for the research. I did not take the survey then but when they call back next I probably will. After looking into it from several different angles it seems legitimate and it's not like they don't already have my number.
Did not answer and I broke the connection. They have called, at least, four times in the last few days and I know the number when I see it. More scam.
They call and call but they are not the State of Ohio. I know that since I went on the Do Not Call Registry I get more calls than I got before it was established. These people call day and night and weekends too.
Someone wrote that the "Ohio Family Health Survey", it's a legitimate, multi year survey sponsored by Ohio State University and Wexner Medical Center, and that it is legit. I did google it, and they are 100% correct - it is legit. For those who are on the Do Not Call List, or pay to have an unlisted number - doesn't matter, I just read their RFA (Request for Application).
The sample frames will include Ohio households with telephone numbers assigned since the publication of
the current directories, as well as households with deliberately unlisted numbers, and cell phone of numbers
with Ohio-associated prefixes.
Found here: https://ckm.osu.edu/sitetool/sites/ofhspublic ... FHS_8-18-11.pdf (bottom of page 5). Who do we contact to get these harassing calls to STOP? Any ideas?
If you call back this #- It says, OHIO FAMILY AND HEALTH SERVICES press #1 for English-#2 for Spanish. Nothing happens you just keep hanging on! I also on the DNC list!
Got numerous calls from this number. I finally told the woman to take my number off their list. "Oh, the Do Not Call List" doesn't apply to us. I said, "I don't care if it does or not, take my number off your list". They are still calling.
They can get around the National Do-Not-Call list if they're taking "surveys".
I got another call from 1-855-500-1438 from someone name Jasman about doing a survery. I am on the national do not call list for telmearketing companys and scams. I have ask you before to stop calling me.
Will You Please Stop Calling Me.....
Got the same call as others but I started to ask her where were her children. She paused for a moment and before she could utter the next word, I told her I know where she lives......
I have not gotten another call back since! Sad it has to come to this, but our freaking government won't act to stop it despite the so called do not call list.
It's called number recycling... the most obvious answer would be that the previous owner of the number your 11 year uses.. use to belong to a drug dealer.
This appears to be legitimate. I don't answer calls from numbers I don't recognize, but I did cal this one back, in hopes of being removed from the call list.
No option for removal, but if you Google "Ohio Family Health Survey", it's a legitimate, multi year survey sponsored by Ohio State University and Wexner Medical Center.
I recevied a call from 855-500-1438 on 7/7/2012. I am on the national do not call list for telemarektinhg companys and scam I have ask you before to stop call. Will you please stop calling me.
Received a call, let machine answer and they left a message on my machine. Person said their name was Clara Holder Taylor and they were calling for the State of Ohio doing a survey regarding healthcare and how my taking this survey will help the state of Ohio. Left the call back number of 855-500-1438. Yeah not calling back.
