Caller ID said "Childrens Cance" (Cancer-?). No message left. My number is unlisted. I never give it out, except to friends and my doctor.

This Phone number locates it in Springfield, IL and just off the business district. Really, they can say anything at these Call Centers. Despicable to use the Children's Cancer Society as a cover. How low can you go?

Due to the fact that I'm on a DNC list, have a non-published, and unlisted phone number, I'm assuming this is a scam charity call. CID shows that is from Children's Cancer. It's supposedly Children's Cancer Recovery Foundation seeking donations. Received the call around 9:30 am. When I had the chance I called the number back and received a recorded message with the option to have my number removed. However, it was a sappy long message. I will chose a legitimate charity on my own...I'm getting so many of these stupid calls asking for money, and think this another stupid robo call. I found many complaints on other sites that agree it is fraud/scam. So disgusting to use an extreme illness and children to scam people!

I have been getting these calls for a very long time. They keep calling through out the day. Start early in the morning and keep it up until earl evening. I'm very leery about these types of calls. I also got one from Illinois Police with that area code. Says it came from Collinsville, IL I know it is a scam so I just don't answer the phone at all. I let my answering machine pick it up. If it were important they would leave a message. They never do. So tired of these phone calls. This call came from Springfield, IL. I thought it might be from my niece who lives down there. So I went to check it and you came up. I don't know what can be done but I saw (yesterday) a list from the FTC but I had cleared out my cache on my phone.

This was actually a paid fund raiser calling on behalf of the Children's Cancer Recovery Fund. Like all paid callers, they don't give up easily. Told them to send info and I would consider. The response was "We'll pit you down for a $20 donation". Received a pledge reply yesterday and did some research on line.
The charity seems to have questionable reviews in terms of how much is actually spent for children (although not too different from other charities that use paid callers). Today , received another call from the paid caller, making sure I'd received the pledge letter and that I would respond quickly. I started to say that I would send the $20 but that I wanted my name removed from the call list since their charity reviews were marginal t best. Couldn't get it all out before the woman hung up. Called the number back and got a recorded message with options, one of which allowed me to be placed on the 'Do Not Call' list.

Number keeps calling every evening at 8:45PM. This evening I picket up. "Vanessa" sounded way too upbeat and enthusiastic for a marketer. When I provided any answers there was about 4-5 second delay every time before she (it) said the next phrase or question. Then I was transferred to verification where I asked if she is a robot. started giving me the standard " I get this question a lot" that these robo programs use. I hang up. Definitely not a human on the other side of the line.

These calls originate from Springfield, Illinois. I am from Springfield and this is a bogus charity. Do not give these people any money. They are scammers. Many different "charities" operate out of the same building at 2425 Stevenson Drive in Springfield.

This "charity" is one of those types where very little donated money actually goes to the cause. Most of the money goes in the pockets of these Osman people. They vacation in Key West and Las Vegas own expensive cars, and live on Lake Springfield.

Beware. Give to a real charity which actually helps people who need it.

They just called my number, she asked for Brandon (there is no Brandon here) then she said she was calling numbers in the area for her cancer charity thing, wanted to transfer me to another person and said she would send me an envelope for the donation. I asked where was she gonna send the envelope and why would she wanna transfer me for verification???? I asked her their location and if they had a webpage so I could see where my donation was going. She hung up. I didn't provide any information. BEWARE of SCAMMERS, do your research, luckily I was sitting in front of my computer, typed the number and it directed me to this page :). always research the number!

Kept rambling with the speech until I stated that I was going to report them to the FCC. then quickly said they'd put us on their do not call list.

These ppl called my house once, we politely said we don't give money over the phone and we would check into it. They kept talking about how safe it and and... Two hours later they called again, but this time the caller ID said it was something different. We told them the same thing as the first phone call. The next morning they called at 8:30 am waking up my dad who had just went to bed from working midnights.

These ppl need to stop. If they are legit, ppl don't wanna help because of all the calls after they have been told to stop.

This persistent "charity" keeps calling me asking for my credit card information for a donation, even after I asked several times to not be called anymore. Well they finally pissed me off for good and I bought an Ooma internet phone that allows me to block 250 numbers. And they are the lucky first number I blocked! Ah, the deafening silence is wonderful.

The address for this alleged Not for Profit looks dilapidated @ 2425 Stevenson; pringfield, IL. The National Academy of Real Estate is shown to be located at same address? though alson shown in Moline, IL. in an industrial area? Diane L. Osman is shown to be Agent for Childrens Cancer a.k.a., Leukemia Foundation. Childrens Cancer at this location may not be active. So why all the crank calls? Perhaps the carrier who transmits this crank call, Level 3 Communications could be held responsible?

They have been calling for months leaving no message. We have an unlisted phone number also. This morning I was asleep and hit the talk button by mistake, they asked for my husband, but had his name wrong (Edward, not Edmund) said he was not here. She then said she could talk to me (never said my name) and proceeded to start about the Children's Cancer... I stopped her, said you keep on calling, remove our name your list, put us on your "do not call" list. She repeated it and said they would. She clearly knew she woke me up but never missed a beat in talking until I said put me on the do not call list. We will see how long that lasts...
