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.
Caller name: Childrens Cancer
calls starting after 8 am called multiple times during the day. Wanted me to make a $40 donation, then $25 when I said send me something in the mail to the address you have. She hung up. Still getting call I just don't answer anymore.
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.
Caller name: Called asking for a donation
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.
Caller name: Children's Cancer Fundraiser
Seriously, 8:12 in the frigging morning? Woke me out of a sound sleep this morning. I tried to call the number back but could not leave a message because it was full. Maybe it is a good thing they are full!
Caller name: Childrens Cancer
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.
This number called my landline twice asking for a donation for the children's cancer hospital. We asked for information about it because we like helping out and hung up in my face . Then when they called again they asked for my credit card. So I hung up on them
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!
Caller name: Childrens Cancer
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 name: Children's Cancer Center
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?
Caller name: Childrens Cancer
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.
Caller name: Children's cancer
Lady called claiming to be raising money for children's cancer. Wanted me to pledge $40, then $25 and when I kept telling her to send me something by mail, she continued to talk over me and then hung up when I told her no legit fundraising company for children calls at 8:45 pm on a school night!
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.
Caller looking for a donation for children with cancer. I told her my daughter has cancer. If she sent me information on her organization I would research it and then after I read about it I would send a donation. She hung up on me. I guess it was a scam!!
Caller name: cHILDREN'S CANCER
THIS NUMBER CALLS ME ON A SATURDAY MORNING AT 8:30 AM WAKING MY HARD WORKING FAMILY. IF I WANT TO CONTRIBUTE TO ANY ORGANIZATION I WILL DO IT ON MY OWN. I HAVE NEVER DEALT WITH THESE PEOPLE AND AM ON THE DO NOT CALL LIST LANDLINE CALLS RECIEVED
Caller name: Children's Cancer
Disgusting fraudsters. Aggressively calling daily at all hrs of the day and night. Refusing to send/mail information for their "children's charity" and insisting on trying to get a credit card number from us.
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).
This phone number has called me numerous times over the last two weeks with request to solicit from my neighbors for their "charity" "Bridget" is very sweet but gets obnoxious. l At a loss as to what to do to get them to stop calling!
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.
These number has called me several times as early as 8 Am and at night too. 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.
This is a COMPUTER call!!! Got the same call last Saturday at 8:30am!! Same speil "you all are harder to get a hold of than the last pickle in the bottom of the pickle jar " What a load of c**p! When you speak there is no give and take she just keeps talking....computer! when i asked if it was a computer....dead silence then hang up, there are bigger fines from the do not call registry if they use a computer!
Caller name: Childrens Cance
Wanted credit card or pledge for donation to Children's Cancer Fund. Do not donate to cold call solicitors. Believe full name of "charity" includes of America. Less than 5% of their collections reach cancer care.
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.
Caller name: UNKNOWN NAME FROM UNKNOWN NAME OF COMPANY
RECEIVED CALL FROM A FEMALE WHO WAS LOOKING FOR MY HUSBAND. UNFORTUNATELY HE WAS NOT AVAILABLE. I DO NOT DO BUSINESS OVER THE PHONE. I AM ON THE "DO NOT CALL LIST" WHEN I ASKED THE FEMALE REP WHO WAS LOOKING FOR FUNDS TO BE DONATED TO CHILDREN WHO ARE CANCER PATIENTS. SHE STATED SHE WOULD SEND IT TO ME. I ASKED HER HOW SHE GOT MY NUMBER AND SHE TOLD ME THAT SHE DID NOT KNOW, SHE STATED SHE DID NOT NEED TO TELL ME. SHE ALSOS SAID SHE IS IN TRAINING. I CONTINUE TO TELL HER I DONATE TO OTHER ENTITIES HOWEVER I DON'T DO BUSINESS OVER THE PHONE DUE TO FRAUD PURPOSES. SHE REITERATED HOW SHE COULDN'T HEAR ME. I ENDED THE CALL POLITELY.
We also got called by something like Children's Cancer etc., probably same number. That outfit is known to keep most of donations for administration. Then Note that cancer physicians are the highest paid doctors in the $300,000 per year, so why should I donate to them being a retiree living from Social Security?
