I keep getting calls and decided to see who was calling.
It's almost 9pm on Sunday!
I get calls from this number every single day - more than once a day!!!!! Annoying!
This was a waste of time. They need to pay for my time that I just lost talking to them.
Called me three times late at night and said they are doing product research. I have requested each time not to call me again and to remove me from their list. The caller ID reads "New Jersey". I'm reporting it to the FCC as I am on the federal do not call list
They called and talked to my wife for 25 minutes and as the survey progressed started asking too many personal questions. Upon telling them to disconnect they just started adamantly telling to continue. We disconnected and they started calling again after a week. Just got off a call with them again telling them that I will file a complain if they keep calling again. These people sound very arrogant and sound like they dont value people's privacy or time. I think if you keep giving information to them they would talk for an hour. I think filing a complaint against them is the correct thing to do. A simple "not interested" answer is not sufficient for them, they wont just disconnect.
I get calls from this number daily. They call at varies times and do not leaves messages. The caller ID says "unavailable"
Not sure if this helps, but I suggest fighting fire with fire. Call them. Don't say anything, let them talk until they hang up. Do this several times.

The first call I received came in from a phone number with an area code of "281", and within a week all calls started coming in from a a "blocked number"... Unfortunately I have a family member who also shows up as a blocked call and each time I answer the phone only to find out that it is Knowledge Networks calling... I too have REPEATEDLY requested to be romeved from their data base to no avail, they keep calling. They have called at least 7 times alone in the last week. It is Sunday evening and I just got another call which prompted me to get on-line to get some insight... Thanks to all of you who have posted your thoughts... I am going to send them an email right now, hopefully it will help stop their calls.
i just happened to google this number. and although NO ONE should be getting calls from this number anymore (as the call center closed in april) i find it ridiculous you would say that the money was counterfeit. as someone who has done their internet surveys in the past i can tell you the money is in fact real. i would normally not even waste my time responding but i just had to say something.
Call them, don't say anything, just let them sit there until they hang up. Do this several times. Fight fire with fire.
Call them a don't say anything. Do this several times. Fight fire with fire.
Call them and don't say anything. Do this several times. Fight fire with fire.
Call them and don't say anything. Do this several time. Fight fire with fire.
These calls started about three weeks ago and they are relentless. Yes that call at all times of the day or night. I found this site tonight and have sent the following e-mail to them @ firstname.lastname@example.org. "If my telephone number is not removed from your call system immediately I will. File a complaint with the FCC IMMEDIATELY. You have 24 hours to remove this number. 281-565-8860 from your call system!!!!!" EVERYONE receiving these calls should bombard their e-mail system with e-mails (maybe they'll get the point)!
I have been receiving calls and refused every single one of them, till I stopped picking up their phone and which ticked me off ending me blocking thier line. They have sent me a total of $3.00 encouraging my family 2 participate in their who knows and who the f really cares survey. The money they sent me are not even real, they are counterfeit of a $2.00 bill and also a $1.00... They Should be cought and thrown in jail where they belong for not only that but also harassment.. Hope they get cought...!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
folks all i can say is ditto to what you all have stated. today i sent an email to Knowledge Networks to complain. below is the email i sent and the reply from MR. Keith Norville (email@example.com)
Hope this provides some assistance.

Subject: Harassing phone calls
Dear DR. CLANCEY,
I continue to receive harassing phone calls from your research dept (908-497-8100) at all hours throughout the day including weekends, for the past two weeks.
I asked nicely the past couple times you called to be taken off your list and I was refused and even laughed at.
Well, it is now no laughing matter.
I am not interested in whatever it is you are requesting
Please show some consideration and common decency when asked to stop the calling and move on like an adult.
You are hereby put on notice; I will now begin to document these calls and if necessary take whatever legal action necessary to stop your incessant calling.
Have a nice day!!
I have been called many times in one day on a several days a week span. This has been going on for some time. My husband answered the phone about a week ago and was harrassed into to taking a survey.........????? These people call various times during the morning afternoon and evening and different times each time. It has been very irritating and unsettling that a company can continually harrass people on their own private phones. Where is there any privacy in your own home anymore. We are on the No Call List. A lot of good this does if these type of calls do not stop........There should be some kind of retribution we as a whole who are being harrassed by this company....Anybody have any ideas...... I am going to turn this number over to my phone company and file charges of harrassment. They also never leave a message and hang on the phone for a while after the message kicks in. I have caller ID so I know who they are and do not even bother to get up and answer the phone.........

The following email addresses can be contacted as well. This is PUBLIC INFORMATION ON THEIR WEB SITE. Give them a taste of their own medicine.
Also MAKE SURE you complain with the FCC. This company could/should be fined extensively for thinking they are above the law.
I'm starting to wonder if a Project Mgmt. education firm sold my number to then. Did any of you take a Project Mgmt class or something similar on line? This school was the only one that had my phone #.
Caller ID 908-497-8100.
Have called everyday for the past week. I do not answer. I have my ringer on silent. They never leave a message. I thought about answering at one point--but have read posts on this site and decided it was pointless. I will call my attorney general's office and complain.
I am on no call list and have an unpublished number
I requested that they remove me from their call list. Ed, a project supervisor for the company, said that he would see if he could find my number and remove it. We will see what happens.
I run my fax machine through the line they call in on, usually just for sending. But when I see their number show up on caller-ID, I flip it over into receive-mode and they get an earful of fax tone.... :-) It hasn't stopped completely yet, but the calls certainly are much less frequent...
Thank you so much for the very helpful suggestion. I too just called them back, and they said that they would take off my cell phone number very politely.

I've been receiving calls day and night, everyday for the past two weeks. They won't stop and I don't want to do their survey. They don't leave any messages either.
Knowledge Network (908-497-8100) has been calling my home almost daily for the past several weeks. They call at various hours, and when I ask that they no longer call me they say NO, that they CAN call as much as they want!
This is pathetic! I have an unlisted, unpublished number, but that means nothing to them.
The people calling are so rude, and smug with their "the do not call list does not apply to us". Give me a break. If I called people who didn't want me calling, I would be arrested! But these people can do it and cannot be stopped?? This is pathetic!
These folks have been calling for months have asked 3 times to get taken off their list. They even call on Sundays
Been calling for several weeks to do a survey. Getting fed up with them
We have recieved over 10 calls from Knowledge Networks. Each time they call we tell them that we do not want to do their survey. I told them that we are on the do not call list and they told me that because they were part of market research they did not have to comply with the do not call list. Is it true that research companies do not have to comply with the do not call list?
These people have no regards for the time of day. It was called at night around 850 p.m.
