Caller name: Albany

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).

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.

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 name: Vanessa

'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.

How disgusting. Asking for money for children suffering from cancer. As a survivor of cancer it pulled at my heart strings. As soon as they wanted my credit card information I knew it was wrong. People like this make the ones who need the proper help never receive it. You disgusting pigs

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.

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.

Caller name: Childrens Cancer

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!

They just called again tonight from this number listed to Albany, NY,
several calls so far. I called the number back using *67 to block my
number but I find businesses can find out your number anyway. The
woman only had a message with a spiel to donate and leave your
name and no way to speak to anyone or delete your number from
their calls. My number is with cable voip and is not listed in a phone
book listing. Also had calls from HBW for auto insurance and Direct
Energy to select them for electricity instead of Con Edison which I did
get stopped. I never used to receive such telephone solicitation calls.

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?

This number called my home twice today, once at 12:41pm and again at 2:10pm. The first called ended when my answering machine picked up. The second time they called my answering machine picked up and this time a woman asked for me by my first name and then hung up. I hate getting these calls especially on the weekend on my days off. If I wanted to or could afford to donate money than I would do it on my own not from a cold call.

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.

I have received many calls from this phony childrens' cancer "charity" and I never pick up the phone unless I recognize the number, but I just couldn't resist giving an earful to a scammer who would call at 8:45 PM on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. She never stopped her spiel while I was calling her out. I finally told her to drop dead and hung up. I am reporting this the NYS Attorney General's office (not that it will do any good).

Received call 8.30 am and again at 4.30pm. Have been receiving calls consistently but do not pick up generally. Sometimes caller Id lists number, other times it says "Children'sCanc". I agree that it is a scam. Since these calls have been coming in for a while I did answer at one point and asked that we be removed from the calling list and that I don't give money over the phone. They still call and have a well rehearsed speech to race through.

When I answer the phone I respond very politely that I am in a SS fixed benefit...but the woman won't let me finish and very rudely would tell me "it just 30 dollars." "how can you not afford 30" dollars". and again I try to explain, but she is nasty and hang up on me.

why would people take advantage of sick children with cancer to solict money from others something has to be done with these kinds of people. This is ridiculous. Parents are praying wishing, hoping for a breakthrough for their dying kids with cancer and these losers are looking for a quick way out to get money for themselves. I pray that it is reverse and that they will know what it's like to be sick and taken advantage of in their times of sickness. Maybe they'll think about how low down and dirty they are.

Got a call from Vanessa at 830AM looking for someone else. Since she had the wrong number or name she starts in on me, asking for a small donation of $40 and said she would send a donation card. I almost did it but decided that I can't give personal info to stranger/ cold caller. Seems a little fishy.
