Calls continuously. When I answer just says hello and hangs up. The call is coming from Farmingdale, NY.. very annoying
Calls every day - if I answer there is no one on other end. Feb. 22, 2014
Many calls over many months from this number. Caller ID shows up as Farmingdale, NY.
Calls every evening. Never leaves a message.
Called and said collecting for law enforcement when I identified myself as a police officer they hung up.
Says he's from a police society...
Said he is from a The police conference and wants a donation..
Caller states he is Joe Macco from the Police Conference.. Asking for a donation...
Calls as frequent as daily....sometimes a few days apart. No one answers when I say hello. But they don't hang up either. Possibly they are using an automated dialing system, which are notorious for causing delays on the callers side after you answer. Very annoying!
Update. Called back the number the guy answers the phone doesn't save who is told him I get calls from you every day can you take me off your list I hear a beep and transferred to a third-party the third-party agency tells me that this is a police fundraiser and the police can't fund raise for themselves so they are calling to fund raise. I asked to be removed from the list and they tell me that they see my phone number as 516 so on and so on. I have to explain that I am not even in 516 area code and then have to talk to two different people including the manager to get my actual phone number taken off of the list no further explanation is given I do tell them however that I've actually worked on marketing plans like this myself and am aware of the fact that this operation seems suspect, and doesn't sound like it adheres to FCC and AMA guidelines (laws!) for telemarketing. For instance... When someone calls you they have to announce both their first and last name as well as the company that they are representing, the reason for the call must be completely transparent and stated upfront. If you ask to be removed they are required to confirm that you have been removed and tell you the timeframe that it will require for them to fully remove you from their list. On average this is about two to six weeks. Especially if their running on an automated dialing system where their data may change and be different from location to location. In general I understand the need for organizations to utilize all means necessary to reach potential clients donors etc. however that should never be to the point of harassment!!! Any legitimate company utilizing telemarketing understands this. The last thing they want to do is to upset their potential customer base: you. If it sounds fishy or if they don't announce themselves know that it is probably a scam. Ask to be removed, hang up, and if necessary report them to the FCC.
I live in a 518 area code . getting at least a call/hangup a day , up to 8pm ... 6 days a week ..
Caller ID says unknown. Called back, it is NYS Police/Trooper organization. When they receive donation, they will send my "welcome kit" with "official decal" for car window. I asked if my taxes weren't enough for this organization. Told him when my ankle monitor is removed, I'll send a donation. He hung up on me.
get a recorded message that claims I must call a 877-361-0970 number and speak to process server David Weinburg regarding a legal matter. I don't have anything pending of a legal nature and have always paid my bills. I have this number on my Call Control "blacklist", but still get partial messages left on my voicemail. I also do not live in NY.
Calls + hangs up when answering machine kicks in.
Says I represent NY Police Conference. Wants a donation. I hang up.
I live in the 518 Area Code. I have worked with and know many NYS Troopers. I was also married to a NYC police Lieutenant . I was told by the Troopers and city police that they do not solicit for donations and that this NY Police Conference does not represent them in any way. I was told not to donate because this is a private group conducting these solicitations.
We too are from 518 and have been getting calls from this # and hang ups on our machine. Tonight he repeatedly said hello into the answering machine waiting for us to pick up. I guess I was correct not to answer!
Leaves no message. I blocked number n my phone.
Called the first time and my husband answered. They hung up. I called the number back and a man answered saying he was joe macho and collecting for the police dept. told him this was a scam and hung up
This number calls almost daily in the evening. Never leaves a message, since I don't answer unfamiliar numbers. Just comes up on my caller ID as Farmingdale, NY
Calls everyday. Hangs up most of the time. When I call back, says he's with Police Conference & is looking for "sponsorship" . I said I was on Do Not Call registry but he said that it didn't apply to Police Conference. I told him I did not want to be called again and to add me to their own do not call list and said I would be filing complaint with NYS Attorney General's Office.
I get calls everyday. When I call back a man answers and just says hello hello....
Soliciting a donation... I told him I work nights and to remove me from his list because next time he wakes me up *I* was going to call the police and report him... he said he would remove me... we'll see what happens...
