I have received about 11 calls from these people, and the times that I did not pick up, no message but a dial tone!!! When I had spoke w/a person from this place they want u to give $$$ to the "Cause"!!! I am on the DO NOT CALL LIST, but it never has helped stop this cruel way of getting $$ ...I have lost family members from cancer and it really leaves me to wonder why they are able to get away w/this!?!
Being a BC survivor I answered assuming it was a legit place perhaps doing a survey which I am always willing to participate in. But, they asked for my husband and were VERY persistent even had the audacity to ask for my debit or cc info! I hung up on them, because they would not listen to my questions!
The lady greeted me by saying "You are harder to get hold of than my kids!" to which I replied ...."I'm sorry I missed you earlier... when did you call?" At that point she went into her spiel. I asked again, "When did you call, because I have had a problem with some calls that might not be getting through." At this point she politely terminated the call, at which point I said, "You are clearly following a script and had not tried to get me before."
They are scamming sympathetic people in the name of breast cancer victims. When I asked "Amanda" what portion of the money they collect is overhead and what portion is used to benefit breast cancer victims, she said "I am glad you asked that; 15% of the money collected goes to fighting breast cancer and 85% is for expenses." When I told her that she is just ripping people off in the name of breast cancer she cut the call short. I should have asked her the name of the SOB at the head of the organization so I could find and expose him (or her).
