Question by Janet S: Has anyone else in Virginia gotten calls from Western Wats, it’s an 801 number…?
I live in Virginia and for the past week I’ve been receiving phone calls to my cell phone from the number 1-801-623-4625. I don’t answer calls from phone numbers I dont know, especially 800 numbers, etc. This number called me atleast once a day for like a week and after I got fed up with it I called the number back and got a recording saying that ‘I had been contacted by Western Wats, and independent research company…’ blah blah and then the call ends. Starting 2 days ago, the number began calling me twice a day instead of just once and it’s really really annoying me. I looked up the company online and found some articles about this company doing “push polling” and something about bashing Mitt Romney. Has anyone else been harassed by these calls and has anyone actually participated in their survey that can tell me what the hell they’re bothering me for? I’m a registered voter in VA and I’m guessing this is related to politics… Anything anyone knows about this will help greatly! Thx
