Caller name: Childrens Cancer

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...

Caller name: Joe

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.

Assuming to be fraudulent - no prior involvement with entity and also assuming they want 'donations'. Go fund raise elsewhere.

Caller name: Children's Cancer Recovery Program

Knew my first name, wanted a commitment of at least $20.00 a month, told me to not hang up because the next person would be taking my information. I told her she could send info in the mail. Scam...you bet, especially when they know your first name. Scam for a Saturday a.m.

Caller name: Childrens Cance

Called at 8 PM, and again at 8:30 PM. What is this? If you don't answer, they keep calling? Thank goodness for caller ID. Guess I need to take the phone off the hook when I don't want to call out.

Caller name: Childrens Cance

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?

Caller name: Children with Cancer

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?

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.

This is likely someone from the NSA targeting you after you left a comment critical of the government on a website. It's intended to be a threat -- or a promise, as I am being hit with directed energy weapons.

Caller ID simply said Springfield, IL. They let it ring 4 times so that answering machine or voice mail would not answer.

If you want to your give money away, try giving money directly to a research hospital. St Jude in Tenn is a good place to start instead of these scammers. At least you know its legit.

Caller name: CHILDREN'S CANCE

Called, no message. Reading from these other posts, I'm assuming it's a scam.
It's really low using kids to squeeze money from unsuspecting folks.
Trying to figure out how to block calls from the landline phone. As for now, I don't answer.

If you talk to them at all, even believing they are not legit, they get very nasty...beware.
