User Complaints for 855-246-9650
Caller name: "UNAVAILABLE" On Caller ID; SUPPOSEDLY "ADA"
THIS IS A SCAM.
First of all, this call was our FIFTH CALL in Six Days - ALL FROM DIFFERENT 855 SPOOFED numbers. WHY would a LEGIT charity need to HIDE behind MULTIPLE ANONYMOUS numbers (NO NAME on Caller ID) *UNLESS* its trying to CIRCUMVENT people's CALL BLOCKING systems???
Secondly, we used to get those letters from another so-called charity that SOUNDED LEGIT "American CANCER Research Group" but was COMPLETELY BOGUS. I was naive enough to give a few times before I started doing RESEARCH and found it was COMPLETELY FAKE, A SCAM. I alerted my neighbors; now no one falls for it and their 'letters.' These are run by a RICH FAT CAT in Michigan who has DOZENS of these scams going and no one does anything about it.
Thirdly, Look up ADA on Charity Navigator: (www.CharityNavigator.com). The "ADA" has a FAILING GRADE of 1 out of a possible 4. They are a SCAM to enrich themselves, and probably, mostly a WASHINGTON DC PAC disguised as/ POSING as a 'charity.' AGAIN you are just ENRICHING some ALREADY RICH DC CRIMINALS.
And remember, ALL TELEMARKETER-generated "donations" mean that 20% OR LESS of your funds go to the actual so-called 'charity'; the OTHER 80+% GOES to the TELEMARKETERS. So, you are PAYING them to CONTINUE TO HARASS YOU!
NO LEGIT CHARITY HARASSES PEOPLE DAILY WITH "ANONYMOUS" UNTRACEABLE, UNSTOPPABLE CALLS for DAYS and WEEKS ON END. THESE are OUT OF CONTROL TELEMARKETERS ENRICHING ONLY THEMSELVES. There is no "GOOD" to be done here!
IGNORE or PICK UP/HANG UP to break the call.
This number has called my family a multitude of times and i am on the national Do not call List. No one is ever there and they call at anytime of the day wake my kids up in the morning or at night. If i find out who they are i would like to make sure they are Charged by law for calling and not checking the list..
telemarkets name is infocision of Ohio , They have been getting fined lately so they won't put their name in the caller id. They have clients like th ADA and ACA and others whom they take close to 80% of the donations and only give 20 % to the charities. If you take a call from one of their 855 numbers report them to the FTC. Their numbers are 8552116994,8553190224,8553966952, among others.
Since they are a PAID telemarketer and Not the charity themselves They have to stop calling you if you report them on the DNC list. Make sure you identify them as you think it was INFOCISION who called you.
Do a search on Infocision scam and see what you find
Caller name: Out of Area
So far, all area code 855 calls have been from these folks. Mostly call on behalf of low payout high overhead charities like this one. Liked the prior post re charitynavigator.com, lots of useful info on that site.
