This is the Connecticut Firefighters looking for money...Talking to Firemen they said if you want to give to Firefighters ...Give to a station in the town you live in...THIS WAY ALL THE MONEY WILL GO TO THEM....Not to Telemarketers
When I answer all I hear is a series of musical tones then they hang up
When you pick the phone, you here hold music. The number has called many times, played music, and hung up. Today, a person named Mark said he was collecting for Connecticut Firefighters. When I asked why their name wasn't on the caller ID they hung up...
Phoned today, listen to answering machine, then hang up. ON the DNC list, and doesn't seem to matter.
UPFFA 860 356-0530 displayed on my caller ID. I Googled the info and it came up with Uniformed Professional Fire Fighters Association of Connecticut. Since they didn't leave a message on my answering machine, I'm assuming the call was from Telemarketers looking for donations on their behalf. If that is the case, how much of your donation will actually go to the UPFFA? I will continue to not answer their calls.
I answered the phone, male caller asked for a specific person, I asked who was calling and got the rude and abrupt response, 'its private, we'll call back later'. Oh I don't think so. I looked up the number and thanks to this site found out the UPFFA's full name, googled it, went to their website and sent a formal request to cease and desist calling my home. Here's their address, fax #, and phone # (which doesn't match the number that called. www.upffa.org/?zone=/unionactive/contact.cfm
I didn't answer & they left no message; however they're using a different number: 860-323-8086.
the fire-fighters get paid pretty d**n well...why do they need more money?
Get called about once a week from UPFFA ( on my caller ID )... I don,t usually answer it, but did tonight and only got recorded music and then a hang up. They use the number 860-323-8086. Someone should stop these scammers from making these annoying calls!
they harass me nonstop calling at least twice a day. No matter how many times you tell them to stop calling they continue.
When I answer all I hear is a series of musical tones then they hang up.
Saw call from 860-323-8086, listed as UPFFA. DIDNT LEAVE A MESSAGE, SO I GOOGLED IT. I HAVE A DO NOT CALL NUMBER, BUT THAT DOESNT SEEM TO MATTER. THANKS
I live in SC now and still have my CT number on a magic jack. I get these CT donation calls all the time. I guess that is why they continue to call, maybe using voter ID info.
Whenever you get a call from a charity, whether it is directly from them or a professional fundraiser for them, if you don't want to give and don't want them calling back just say,"Please take me off your call list." By law they have to stop talking to you and they will take you off their call list. I have used this many times. And yes, many times these charity calls are from professional fundraisers who take a cut from what you give.
Calls come daily - I don't answer........
Following up on others comments. I once gave to a Police version of this type of call. BIG mistake. Now I'm in a database of telemarketers that work for these quasi charities. I asked to be sent a brochure on the charity or how much of the money actually goes to the cause, they get attitude and hang up. So you may get out of one group, but you are in the database, they just switch out the cause. I learned my lesson the hard way.
