Caller name: Childhood Leukemia Society

I receive calls from the above number at least 3-4 times a day. Never leaves a message, just makes annoying calls. There is in fact a Childhood Leukemia Foundation located at 807 Manoloking Rd., Brick, NJ, 08723 and they are accredited with the BBB. I honestly believe The CLS is a "SCAM"

Caller name: Childhood Leukemia

Received this call this afternoon. Answered the phone, but no one was there. Googled this name and number and it came up as a scamming number. Tired of the number of scamming calls that continue to come in. I'd like to know where they get my number from. I have reported previous calls to the FTC before.

Caller name: Childhood Leke

We moved over a year ago and had to get a new phone number for our landline. Since then, we have been getting calls from 317-472-8016 at least once or twice a week. Usually we don't pick up. We are on the Do Not Call list. Yesterday I picked up and someone asked for someone I didn't know (but I think he might have had our phone number before us). When I explained I didn't know that person and he had the wrong number, he apologized and hung up. Today they called again but when I picked up and said hello, they hung up.

Caller name: Childhood Leke

They called before 9 am so they Do Not Care About Laws. Caller id said "Childhood Leke" (for lekemia). My calls are down to almost being non existent and this is how I made it happen.

When you file a worthless DNC complaint, the DNC puts your new fresh name at the top of the DNC list, which will help these jerks when they start adding new numbers to their robocall list. You'll have your fresh new phone number at the very top of their sucker list. DNC complaints from citizens are worthless and ineffective. I have stopped filing DNC complaints months ago. The answer to our common problem is using a hand held tape recorder and repetively tape the (disconnected/out of service) telephone tone/sound. The same one that telezaper uses and sells. I started using a repeated two minute recording of the same sound as telezapper and my calls have gone from an average of 4-10 calls a day, down to none to one per week, up until today. I played this new jerk my nice new tape. They hung up in about 15 seconds. If their like past callers, they won't call back. It works. My last call before today 09/13/2012 was over a week and a half ago. This is how you do it. Have the tape already going before you answer the phone and continue playing it until they either hang up or you think that the tape is close to the end. If so then you hang up. They won't call back, I've proven it to myself already after just using it a few weeks. Prior to using it I've put up with over two years of these nusinance calls.

I think this is a scam. This number (317-472-8016) has called my home and cell several times lately at different times of the day. When I answer the phone there is never anyone at the other end. I get the feeling that they are trying to figure out when I am home, and when I'm not. When I called the number back I got an answering matching saying that I had reached the Childhood Leukemia Foundation, I would have expected to get some kind of automated phone dialer, so I'm thinking that it is someone spoofing the caller ID of the Leukemia Foundation.

Caller name: Childhood Leukemia Foundation

I have had four calls this week, the fourth time time I answered. The caller identified herself as from "Childhood Leukemia Foundation". My number is a wireless number. Caller ID says "UNAVAILABLE". Telemarketers are required to display their phone number on caller IDs. I think this violates multiple aspects of Federal law (Telephone Consumers Protection Act of 1991 and Truth in Caller ID Act of 2009).

Caller name: Childhood Leukemia Foundation

Caller ID is Childhood Leuke. A landline Indianapolis IN. Childhood Leukemia Foundation, 4770 South Emerson Avenue, Suite C, Indianapolis IN 46203, 317-788-2600 Per CharityNavigator.org its a very small charity with assets of under $2 million. It has a very poor one star rating based on the percentage of monies raised going to those that it is intended for. It has the lowest rating of any charity out there! Per CharityNavigator it looks like Childhood Leukemia Foundation does a lot of expensive advertising & fundraising & literally pays out half or more of what they take in to cover this. Their CEO or the person basically running this small charity takes a fairly hefty salary for such a small charity. Their salary is $140,000 a year & is around 6% of the total revenue for the charity.

got a few calls from this, doesn't leave messages
anyway, tonight I answered, just to figure who it is.
gut knew my name, wouldn't tell me who he is until I admitted who I was but I didn't and he still figured he will try anyway. ames from the childhood Leukemia Foundation dis his spiel about Christmas Basket etc, I told him I do my donations online and asked for their website, he said "that's ok, we'll pass"
And hung up.
I did call the number back which answered with said "Childhood Leukemia and leave a message"
Any legit organization will not hesitate to give a website, after all, donations made in one form or another still goes to the company.
Don't give any information at all.

Caller name: Innovative Teleservices on behalf of Childhood Leukemia Foundation

Live fundraising solicitation call w/blocked Caller ID (x*x) yyy-zzzz recorded 07 April 2014 ("Laura of Innovative Teleservices" professional fundraiser for Childhood Leukemia Foundation)
Caller ID: completely blank

Note: called December 29 & 31, 2013 also from a totally blocked Caller ID

Live fundraising call from "Innovative Teleservices on behalf of Childhood Leukemia Foundation" using completely blocked phone numbers.

I never contribute to "professional fundraisers" because they rarely give more than 10% of collections to the charity and I wouldn't support this charity because of their conscious reliance on such an inefficient collection method.

Following is a transcript of this fundraising solicitation call:

[me] Hello?
[they] Hi, John?

[me] Who?
[they] Well, my information might be wrong. My name is Laura and I'm calling you today on behalf of the Childhood Leukemia Foundation in Brick, New Jersey. This year the Foundation is delivering gift baskets to sick children that are in cancer treament centers and these baskets have some really great things like toys and games, there's pajamas and even a $75 gift card inside. What we're trying to do is help lift their spirits as they go through their cancer treetment. I'm with Innovative a professional fundraiser and we have not mailed out anything to you yet. We want to make sure we can count on your support for a tax deductible donation. Most are helping with our Gold sponsor at $35 and Silver sponsor at $25. Can the children count on you for one of those?

[me] Uh, this is for children with leukemia you say?
[they] Yep, yep and we're, we're raising money for the gift baskets that I mentioned and also in addition to that the Foundation provides human hair wigs for the children who lose their hair during chemotherapy treatments.

[me] Uh, yes, I think I can contribute to that.
[they] Ok, would you like to do the Gold for $35? Or the Silver for $25?

[me] Uh, I'll, I'll go the Gold.
[they] I'm sorry, didn't hear you?

[me] Gold.
[they] The Gold for 35? Well that's very generous, now can I get your first name?

[me] My first name is Jason.
[they] And Jason your last name?
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[ I provide her a fake name and address courtesy of FakeNameGenerator.com ]
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

[they] Excellent. Well first I want to thank you very much for your very generous pledge of $35, next I'm going to transfer you to our Records department. What they do is confirm the pledge. They're also gonna go over your address one more time, make sure I didn't do anything wrong and they're the ones who get the information together and mail it out to you and they uh they'll let you know what to look for in the mail, ok?

[me] Aw right.
[they] Please stay on the line sir, they'll pick right up.

[me] Awright. [you can hear me taking a deep breath]
[Records dept] Thank you for holding, are you comfortable with the 35?

[me] Yes I am.
[Records dept] (she verifies my address, asks if there's any "apartment or post office"?) Ok, um, you'll get it [pledge card] in about three days that's just when we ask you to send it back, ok?

[me] O h k a y .
[Records dept] All right, thank you so much, you have a nice evening.

[me] Ok, thank you, good night.
