No such thing as Childhood Leukemia Society. Calls early in day often before 9am. This is a scam.

In response to:

automated voice that says my Master Card has been stolen and gives an option to "talk to a representative".... I don't have a Master Card

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: Confused

On my caller ID, the name associated with this number says Creative Consultant. I've answered in the past, where the caller says they calling on behalf of Childhood Leukemia Society. What a scam! Glad I found this site!

This group has NOTHING to do with the Leukemia Society. Our son died from the complications of leukemia and this is an insult to anyone even remotely involved with this difficult disease.

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.

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 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.

This number calls repeatedly week after week. There is never anyone on the line. Calls come in the morning (between 8 and 9) and at night (between 8 and 9). This morning, I did not get my dial tone back for over a minute.

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.

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"
