THESE SCAMMERS CALL ALL THE TIME JUST TELL THEM TO TAKE A HIKE. IT'S GANG INTERNET FRAUD. THESE GANGS HAVE CRIMINAL WEBSITES HUNTING NEW VICTIMS ALL THE TIME. TURN THEM OVER TO THE FEDS. SO THAT THEY CAN TRACK THEM TO THEIR CELL PHONES AND THEIR PHONEY WEBSITES. NO LEGITIMATE CHARITY WOULD DO THIS.
Just got a call from this number. Gal on speaker phone (I could hear an echo) said she was calling for "Children's Charities". Said she called before and that I said I would not mind helping and that she should call again. I NEVER spoke to her before and did not ask her to call again. This is NOT a legitimate organization. When I told her I was unemployed and on a limited income she tried to get me to give her $15. I told her I couldn't and instead of a polite thank you or anything she just hung up on me. Any REAL charitable organization would never do that. Caller ID just said "Michigan". When I tried to call back I got a recording that the caller's mailbox was full. When I researched the phone number on the Internet I found numerous other complaints and a website for this number but I don't think that is legitimate either. There are spelling errors and no other links on this site. What do you think? BEWARE OF THIS SCAM ARTIST!!!! Report this number to FCC. It is illegal to use a phone to all and harass people for profit.
Same here. I get calls from them constantly. Most times I don't answer, but sometimes I do just to tell them to stop calling. When I do, they talk right over you with their excuse as to why it might not be them. As another person said, you can tell you're on a speaker because you get the echo feedback sound. I have a Paal personal safety alarm and use that when a human telemarketer won't quit. Just pulled it out and put batteries back in it. Now I'M ready for THEM!!
