A children's cancer charity looking for donations. They get you to agree to send them a donation, then send you to "verification" who tries to get you to pay with a credit card. Say no and they'll just send you paper mail so you can donate that way.
This number just called our land line at 8:30am. My caller ID box just said ALBANY. We are on the DO NOT CALL LIST, but we continue to get calls from the likes of this number. We do not have a voice mail on this phone, so I did not pick up. Rather, I just let it ring until they eventually hung up (I've read that you shouldn't even answer one of these calls because then they know what time you are at home so they can keep calling at that time).
Very pushy caller asking for a donation. Originally told me they would send me a pledge card but then aggressively asked for my debit/credit card. REFUSE TO GIVE IT, and request the pledge card. I doubt it will come and will throw it away when it does. So sad that these people are out there and make it difficult for legitimate orginzations.
This same woman called me on June 19, 2013. While she told me she represented a Charity for Children with Cancer, I was in the process of writing a letter about a similar scam. I told her, it is pathetic and shameful that scam artists, because of their bad ethics, deprive sick children in hospitals and legitimate organizations that can really help people. Really, I was writing the letter during the time she called and still wonder whether she is involved with the scam I am in process of reporting.
Caller said she was a professional fundraiser with Children's Cancer Center. Before she could continue, I told her that I already work for a major cancer center, which stopped her in her tracks. She was polite and thanked me for taking the call. However, she called at 8:40 AM. What fundraiser calls that early?
She said she is from ACS (American Cancer Society) She knew my first name she was looking to send me a pledge card to support the little children in hospitals suffering from cancer. I told her I already support several ACS organizations but she insists that I pledge to her cause and wanted to send me a pledge card I said no and she hung up on me before I had a chance to explain.
Approx location in block surrounded by Hudson Ave, Green St, Division St, and Dallas St. Try as hard as they might, don't give personal info. They try to get you to use a credit card so they can go on a shopping spree. You won't get any material from them in the mail.
Lady called claiming to be raising money for children's cancer. Wanted me to pledge $40, then $25 and when I kept telling her to send me something by mail, she continued to talk over me and then hung up when I told her no legit fundraising company for children calls at 8:45 pm on a school night!
'Vanessa' called several days in a row and since I usually screen calls I finally picked up. She asked for my husband (she had the right first name). I asked her to please stop calling. She went on with her spiel in such a manner that I thought she was an automated message. I did not stand a chance of interjecting to tell her to save her breath because I will not give money to cold-callers. When I finally did tell her that she complimented my generosity to other causes and again went on a verbal tear that I could not stop. I told her she was a horrible representative for the charity and she told me she was still training. I have a feeling 'this ain't her first rodeo'. She was very well versed in a SUPER AGGRESIVE pitch. I imagine that may work on some older folks and that makes me sad. Bottom line, RUDE, ABNOXIOUS, CLEARLY MUST WORK ON SOME COMMISSION BASIS OR SOMETHING. Sounds like a scam to me.
calls starting after 8 am called multiple times during the day. Wanted me to make a $40 donation, then $25 when I said send me something in the mail to the address you have. She hung up. Still getting call I just don't answer anymore.
Caller looking for a donation for children with cancer. I told her my daughter has cancer. If she sent me information on her organization I would research it and then after I read about it I would send a donation. She hung up on me. I guess it was a scam!!
Illegal Scam Operation and caller ID says Childrens Cancer. I just called it and a recorded happy female voice said "we're sorry, the number you called is not a working number. Goodbye". I reported it to my state senator in New York ( the calls originate in Albany, NY ) My senator said he'll turn it over to the Attorney General's Office and I left the number with a TV station in Albany. Hopefully, we can get that number taken down permanently. It's sickening and deplorable that someone would ask for donations under the ruse of Childrens Cancer. What the h**l is WRONG with these people??? I wish I could nail down an address in Albany. I'd take a short ride and pay them a visit!
