My voice mail was from a local man running for sheriff. Must be a recycled junk number.
I got a call from them. It was a recording for election,
It said INS and the number.
Just got a call from this number. They left an automated voicemail message. This call was concerning the Santa Clara County upcoming election, promoting "Kevin Jensen for Sheriff 2014."

It's very odd because the call came from 417-800-2368 (which is in Missouri) but it is a recorded message for a Santa Clara County (California) Sheriff's election campaign (which ended up on my voicemail). Which has nothing to do with the other calls here. So maybe it's a spoof of some kind or maybe a lot of organizations use this number.
I couldn't even vote against the guy because I already voted by absentee ballot.
Robo-call, left a message, trying to get me to vote for someone or other.
Repeated calls from this idiot. The caller ID showed TBD. Didn't pick up.
someone endorsing someone else for political office (California primaries)
Candidate endorsement message for Santa Clara (CA) county sheriff election. They have called both my residence number and my cell number. Call originates from Missouri. Left voice mail in both cases.
Message from Lynne Johnson, retired Palo Alto Police Chief endorsing Kevin Jensen for Sheriff. Paid for by Santa Clara Public Safety Workers for Kevin Jensen.
So, I have cops cold calling/spamming me asking me to vote for them?
The caller ID is INS
Got a call from this number. The voicemail was a recording endorsing a political candidate.
Got a call from this number yesterday, no one there. Caller ID showed INS, heaven only knows if it is real or what it might stand for. Their number now in my Spammer list so they will get a disconnected message (beauty of a nice VoIP service).
Unfortunately the DNC list is for legitimate companies. If crooks/scammers followed the laws they wouldn't be crooks. As long as you accept the service of a phone company, you accept the pitfalls of having a phone line. I imagine the local phone company is making more money off these callers than they do an individual customer (just like the USPS makes more from direct marketing than individuals).
Try living in China, Cuba, South Korea the middle east or most eastern european countries and see how you'd like living under an "iron fist" where the government is all empowering and its people are all pee-on's. So, go ahead and have your hatred for the United States Of America and expunge yourself from this FREE society. This country doesn't need ignorant, little twerps like you degrading a FREE, capitalistic society.
These infamous calls promoting some political candidate for public office, etc are so incredibly inane. It's the same old plop, plop, fizz, fizz that these political figures speak that can dupe some of the people some of the time, but has no effect on people who know better. Since 99.9% of all people occupying political positions are self centered frauds themselves, it really doesn't surprise me that they'd stoop to burning up the phone lines promoting their selfish selves amongst the American people just to get a god d a m n vote.

This/these m o t h e r f u c k e r (s) call me several times a day. I'm so f u c k i n g tired of it! If I knew exactly who was behind these calls I'd meet the insufferable p r i c k (s) with my Mossberg 12 gauge shot gun in hand.
Got call and blocked number instantly.
They call, I don't recognize the #, so they can leave a message if they want an answer. ( or sometimes I just put the phone in front of the TV and they can listen to it).
They hung up after the 4th ring.
We are in the midst of local elections so I am getting multiple daily calls telling me why I should vote for one scam artist or another. This call today was supposedly from a local police organisation, telling me that all the other callers are scammers and I should vote for his completely honest and reliable candidate. Why it has a 417 area code is rather strange, since I am in California. Hmmm....
BLOCK THEM. Problem solved. When they use a new number, block THAT one. C'mon people. I only come here to b1tch and provide comic relief, but you gotta use your heads a little, too.
I have received 4 calls in the past 3 days asking for my wife who is working and telling me she had inquired on line about health insurance....my wife has never inquired on line about health insurance....the last person I talked to was rather rude when I refused to answer his questios...I told him to send me what my wife supposedly filled out and he refused.....what can be done with these unwanted calls....I'm on the do not call list.

Just got a call; I did not answer; answering machine is OFF.
It doesn't matter if you are on the Do Not Call list. Criminals don't mind breaking the law. That's what they do for a living. Don't ask them to stop. They keep annoying you with calls until you answer to tell them to stop, then when they have your ear, they try to rope you in. If you get mad at them, they think it's funny. They are professional a--h---s.
These guys normally call me 1 to 2 times a day, however today they have called every 5 minutes for the past hour!!!! Super frustrating! They never say anything or leave a message when I send it to voicemail. I thought ignoring the calls would make them go away but they have been calling for over a month.....complete bs. There has to be something we can do to make the calls stop!
I always receive incoming calls from this number, even multiple times per minute when I don't answer! I wonder if the caller(s) found my number when I registered for cruises, but I'm not interested.
keeps calling, does not leave message.

I just got a call today from them. It is a health care scam. They left a message to call (800) 317-4701.
There are similar scams out there, so beware.

Not sure if you heard, but there are scams going around where scam artists are trying to spoof numbers. With phone number spoofing, it makes it harder to catch the culprits.
I know because I have been trying to fight this battle and know how a dialer works (I used to run a telesales dialer for a legitimate company). The person running the system just needs to tell the dialer what number to be displayed, that's all. The local phone company to where they are dialing will then try to associate that number to a name.
Anyways, since they have been calling me on my cell phone, it is easy to ignore their calls by using an app called Mr. Number. There are similar programs, I'm sure, but this is one I was referred to and so far has worked like a charm.
As for those on a land line, I am not sure if they would invent a device to mimic the same thing.
I'm getting 7 or 8 voicemails a week from this number. It is from a company offering health insurance. I called back asking that they stop calling but they contribute to harass me.
Got a call from this number today and they actually left a message - IEHP or something like that - family health insurance!
I receive a call from this number and when I answer they do not respond. So, I choose to reject the call.
