Quick internet search shows they're scammerspretending to call from a PC company re: people's computers.
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 **** 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!
