Alright, FINALLY got a live person on the other end and they addressed me by name. They called to tell me ALL ABOUT the poor sick kids needing donations in order to fulfill their last wishes. OK, First off, I KNOW there are legitimate organizations that do this like the Make a Wish Foundation, this are NOT the same group. They called themselves the Wish Network. Although they would have you believe they are affiliated or even the same group, they are in fact Telemarketers calling from a call center.
People, I am all for supporting Charities, but DO NOT give out your personal information or money to ANYONE that calls and solicits you. If ANY of your money actually goes to the Charity, it is no more than 10% of what you gave them. If you wish to make a Donation, do your research, ask questions, and then YOU CALL THE CHARITY DIRECTLY. This goes for ALL the other "Charities" that call, Shriners, 100 Club, Firefighters, none of those truly legitimate Charities Call and solicit funds, they are all Call Centers looking to make extra money by collecting information from unsuspecting persons with their terrible "sob stories," designed to tug at your heart strings. Don't fall for it.
We didn't answer however I did a little investigating and it is associated with the Wish Network...the reason so many of you aren't getting alive person is because they use a robocaller and you aren't giving them enough time to pick up and talk to you. If these are the same people they don't rate real well. Here's an article to read: http://www.tampabay.com/americas-worst-charities/charities/kids-wish-network-inc
I have received 6 calls from them today alone. I have answered a few of them, there was no one there. I tried calling the number back on two of them, was told to hold on, I did and ended up being cut off. Then, the others, I just did not answer. What can be done about it. I am not in good health and find it difficult to get to a phone sometimes only to find out it was a scam call . Once ,ok but 6 times today alone? I got several yesterday too.
