I've been getting a couple of calls a day from this number. They hang up before the answering machine picks up -- usually -- or when my message begins, "If you are not a telephone soliciter, charity, or political caller, please leave a message after the tone." I've been on the do-not-call list since the first day it was available, but it doesn't seem to help with these guys.

November 1st, 2013 Pat M. CA

Telefund calls at least once every day, usually in the evening. I am on the do not call list.

October 11th, 2013 James Vipond SD

These scoundrels keep calling my landline phone at least every two days. I went to donotcall.gov to file a complaint, but because of the government shutdown, the FTC can no longer provide the service.

September 15th, 2013 Matt Bieneman MD

This scammer has called each day for four days in a row. They never leave a message.

September 3rd, 2013 J. Demers NY

Fund raiser for various charities.

August 24th, 2013 MOL TX

Calls have been coming apparently from this number everyday for about a month. The never leave a voicemail message. So I finally looked up the number via Google search. Where it is listed on multiple websites as a persistent annoying caller. So when today the phone rang again, I just answered to the effect that "you need to put my phone number on your do not call list" Person on the line said something apologetic about "being listed as a guardian (?) for ... and sorry this must have been a wrong number" ... Dialed back and reached their outgoing message about Telefund, dial 304 to be removed. So, if you've listed me a guardian for your kids or whatever, leave a message. bye

May 31st, 2013 Jane TX

This number calls every day. All hours of the day. No set time. 8:40 at night or 9:50 in the morning. I pick up and hang up.

May 26th, 2013 Charlie TX

Number is blocked so caller gets a busy
They have called every 5 min
On this Sunday afternoon

April 29th, 2013 Kenzie AZ

They call me every day. This has been going on for about a month. I'm getting sick of this!

April 10th, 2013 TomS LA

I was in Florida last week and I received 10 calls from this company. Upon my return, I have received 2 calls per day. Enough is enough!

February 28th, 2013 JeanK CA

I get at least 2 calls a day from this number on my cell phone. Very irritating. This has been going on for 2 weeks now!

February 17th, 2013 Ann AR

They have called 7 times in 5 days, 4 of those 7 have been today - just in the last 5 hours!!

February 7th, 2013 J FL

Nearly every day there is a call. How can I get them stopped?

February 5th, 2013 Loretta CA

Call constantly I never answer they never leave a message

January 24th, 2013 Craig CA

No message left

December 28th, 2012 Don S. OH

For months I have been receiving a call from this number almost every day. If I let the answering machine get it they hang up. If I pick up the phone, they hang up. I have absolutely no clue as to they represent or why they are calling.

December 1st, 2012 jf MO

Receive calls at least once a day, usually in afternoon, for months past. The few times I have answered, there is no one there. I have no idea who they represent or how I have any connection to them. It is well past election time.

November 29th, 2012 Jim VA

Started recieving call after call after call after call after call and they will NOT stop. So Thanks "Matt" for that list of organizations this harasser is supposed to represent. I am and I suggest everyone else complain to each and every one of these organizations about the harrassement done in thier name and lets put these scumbags out of business.

November 28th, 2012 dk IL

Today I answered a call from this number. I put it on speaker and said nothing as I didn't recognize the number, but didn't want them to keep calling back if I didn't answer. After about 30 seconds of silence, someone said hello and asked for me by first and last name. They were calling on behalf of the ASPCA, which I do give money to. They just wanted to know if I would give more....lol

November 20th, 2012 bell PA

why would they call in the first place if they're just going to hang up! UGH so infuriating. I tried to call them back and got sent through a phone web. pointless.

November 20th, 2012 annoyed in NE NE

They call, I answer, but no one's on the line, and then they hang up. I have received up to 50 of these phone calls, and it's always the same. I answer, they hang up, whether I answer in the first ring, or in 3 rings, they just hang up.

If this is a non-profit calling, as it has been suggested on this Web site, then I vow I will never again give to any non-profit that solicits me over the phone. I already give to the non-profits of my choice, when I want to, not when I'm harassed into giving. The non-profits I give to never call me on the phone, but if they should start calling me, then I will cross them off my list. Money talks. If they are raising campaign contributions, someone should tell them the election is over.

I remember what it was like before the "Do Not Call List" came into existence. I would receive 20 to 50 telephone solicitations a day. I was forced to unplug my phone. My phone! The one I paid a monthly service charge to have in my home! Telephone solicitors ruined it for themselves. Evidently, non-profits are going down the same road.

Call came to cellphone. Family member out of town so I answered the call. No one there.

October 23rd, 2012 Resident47 RI

How nice for you, Ms. Rehman, and irrelevant. See my comment from two months ago.

October 23rd, 2012 Donna Rehman AZ

Call to my cell, which is on the National Do-Not-Call list.

October 17th, 2012 Resident47 RI

You can ''attest'' what you like, but commercial fundraisers tend to exhibit suspect behavior and profit quite well from so-called ''nonprofit'' groups which themselves are frequently closet profit enterprises.

October 17th, 2012 goeta gal CA

I know this is not a scam. I know someone who works there and is passionate about their work for progressive organizations. I called back and left my number at extension 304. I hope this works.

September 19th, 2012 Matt CA

Telefund is a fundraising organization. It makes calls for a variety of causes. If their client is a political organization, then the Federal "No-Call List" does not apply. If you don't wish for them to call you, simply ask the customer representative to remove you from their calling list.

I can attest that they are not a "scam".

PhoneTray Free answered this number for me, gave them a piece of my mind, and hung up. All that's needed is a Fax/Data/Voice/CallerID modem and the free program. Check it out at: www.phonetray.com

August 28th, 2012 jmf301 WI

I'vr received a few rogue calls from 'Telefund' at (213) 487-9500, the latest at 8:28pm CDT (27 August 2012). I have CallerID and Voice Mail so I don't pick up the receiver if it's a strange number or 'unknown'. Don't want to gove any hint that my phone number exists as a live numer which would result in more rogue calls.

August 27th, 2012 Resident47 RI

Audrey, this is why: The following URL links to the FTC FAQ page which the DNC site nearly begged everyone to read before you registered your numbers. See items 28 through 32.

Q&A: The National Do Not Call Registry
www.ftc.gov

See also my comment from April, only four down from yours. Now that the problem is defined, find in the next link the simple steps I took to rid myself of a major pain charity beggar by politely rubbing its face in federal laws. You will note that I never rely on verbal cease-communication demands.

I get several calls from this number every day on my cell phone. Since I don't know the number I never answer, but it drives me
crazy. I am on the do not call list. Why is it that this company can call me? And more importantly, how do I get them to stop??

August 17th, 2012 DirtyEd PA

They have a few call centers around the country. This one is in Los Angeles. Their homepage is www.telefund.com
and the info e-mail is info@telefund.com

August 17th, 2012 DirtyEd PA

Picked up phone. No one there. The number is now in my computer program PhoneTray Free which will answer this number the next time they call, give them a piece of my mind, and hang up. All that's needed is a Fax/Data/Voice/CallerID modem and the free program. Check it out at: www.phonetray.com

August 13th, 2012 Pissed CA

they are calling my home at 7am to 10pm whoever they are fuck off.

April 28th, 2012 Resident47 RI

TBragg, now that you've practiced your no-call request here, deliver it to the actual caller, which does not maintain this site or this web page.

TeleFund is a commercial fundraiser, one of many hired call centers expected to honor an internal no-call list and add any number upon request. Break that order, the FTC declares, and ''the telemarketer may be subject to a fine of up to $16,000.'' They are also covered to a point by other regulations for telepests, so you can kvetch about abandoned calls, bot calls to mobile phones, and so on.

April 28th, 2012 Larry CA

Fuckers!

April 1st, 2012 TBragg ME

Please stop calling me! I do not want or give you whatever you people are calling about. Taking me off the calling list would be your best interest or I'll pursue action! Please and thank you and may God bless you.

February 24th, 2012 J CA

received multiple calls this week from this number. they have a wrong number but continue to call

December 9th, 2011 Terry MA

After repeated calls with no message left, I finally decided to pick up the phone the third time they called me at school. Some guy asked for someone who has never had this phone # (I have owned this number since 2002) and hung up when I asked where he was calling from. Another number for my blocklist; I just wish it was free to block these calls at the carrier level.

December 5th, 2011 FedUp IL

I called their Chicago headquarters number [773 486-6637] provided by Jon Mac below [thanks!]. I told them to put me on their DNC list, and that I and others on this site will report them to the FTC. I told the FTC about these pages of complaints, and suggested they look here. I also suggested there should be calls/wk limits on exempted categories [political, charitable,...] as well.
PLEASE take it a step further and COMPLAIN to the FTC. A surge in complaints on one # will get their attention.

November 29th, 2011 Phyllis GA

Calling multiple times per day at all hours of the morning and evening and never leaving a message may be an effective fundraising method for some people, but it only makes me determined to never donate to that organization again!!!!! Just saying, Telefund.

November 27th, 2011 Candy land

Caller ID said "CALIFORNIA". A male voice came on after I said "hello" and asked for someone who has never used this phone number. He claimed to be "Shawn O'Rielly" from "Earth Justice". When I asked for the company's address he immediately hung up the phone. This is a sure sign that it is some kind of scam. They are apparently using names of reputable organizations to try to trick people into giving up their credit card numbers. Similar scammers were doing this about six months ago on the same phone line. This scammer has called every day for the last 12 days. In summary, three items indicate scam: 1. No valid name in caller ID, 2. Asks for an unknown person, and 3) Hangs up when you try to find out who they are.

these people call my home four times a day...sometimes late. I am in Pennsylvania and there is a three hour time difference. So this is an interruption of my time with my family

November 9th, 2010 Nick

I don't appreciate getting a call from what turned out to be a bunch of democrat fundraisers pressing me to give money to their cause. They didn't give a damn that I've lost my job and am still unemployed! Despicable, but oh so typical because they have no shame. I will never take another call from these arrogant ___________. BEWARE!

October 23rd, 2010 Human CA

they called several times and the line is muted so no sound is heard on the other end. Today they called at 7:40PM on a Friday. Annoying!

October 18th, 2010 MOB CA

no message; 7 calls in one day.

September 3rd, 2010 Steve CA

Called their number, dialed extension 304 to unsubscribe, and got "mailbox full". Sigh.

August 27th, 2010 Lyle WA

Outfit called once today so far only. Let the phone ring and the answering part took the call. My outgoing message tell callers if they are a market research company, survey taking company, or a telemarketer to hang up immediately and not call again. Seems to work so will see if it does with this outfit.

July 21st, 2010 Matthew CA

These guys never give up. They call at least twice a day, even Saturdays, hang up when they hear the answering outgoing message, never leave a message. I'm going to try the opt out extension 304, but I expect they won't quit because they seem to be calling for several causes I've contributed to previously.

July 20th, 2010 dardura108 CA

They have called twice a day for many weeks now; so glad i f;ound this website; the tip from Tom (below) looked good, so i tried it:
Call them back, and when Telefund answers dial 304; this directs you to an "opt out" extension. i just now did it, we shall see if it works, lol My Thanks to all the people who spoke up on this page, great idea!

July 13th, 2010 Sheri WA

I just got back into town and looked through the Caller ID -- 24 calls from 213-487-9500, often several times a day. I would be much more likely to both answer the phone and even donate money if an agency (ACLU, Planned Parenthood, whomever) called me directly, even though I hate telephone solicitations.

July 4th, 2010 Matt NY

I had been getting calls from 213-487-9500. Finaly decided to answer. It is the from the ACLU wanting to up donations. I am unemployed and my beneits ended. We said goodbye and no more calls.

July 1st, 2010 Susan Chapler

these people just called twice in one hour! they call daily. i don't answer my phone and they don't leave a message.

June 12th, 2010 MBI IL

I'm sick of hearing from 'Telefund Inc" at (213) 487-9500. They call several times per day. I either don't answer and they do not leave a message or answer and turn up the volume on my radio or TV. I just HATE solicitations! I'll try Tom's idea ...

April 18th, 2010 fer GA

After repeated calls from them w/ no messages left, I blocked their calls. They just don't get it -- they continue to call.

April 1st, 2010 Ellen FL

In the several days, I've gotten four calls from them. I don't answer 'cause I don't feel like hearing the pitch. They don't leave a message. All the groups I contribute to have my e-mail address, so why do I have to be pestered by phone?

Thank goodness for my Call Director; annoying callers never see the light of day in my home :)

February 18th, 2010 jean NJ

The caller said he was calling from the International Rescue Commission for relief for Haiti. Had our name, and said we had donated to them before. Unlikely!

January 30th, 2010 Ken WA

Over and over and over they call. At least every other day. I keep picking up hoping I can tell someone to remove me from their list but no one ever answers. If you want to give them a call their number can be found at www.telefund.com

CALLS 2-3 TIMES A DAY NEVER LEAVES MSG.

December 31st, 2009 Mike-IL

I've been receiving daily calls from this number for a couple weeks without answering. After finally doing some digging and learning the nature of the company I called their number 12/31/09 and added my name to their do not call list. I will post to let you know if it works. Thanks.

December 28th, 2009 Ruth WA

Asked for two people who don't live here, never have. Verified several times and apologized for the call. It appears someone has been using a fake number (for them, not for me) as a contact. Seemed legitimate.

December 16th, 2009 Edmund Clark FL

Call more than once a day...now I just pick up and hang up

December 11th, 2009 suzi

every day. just got 2 calls in 2 hrs. I screen all calls and they never leave a message. it's 5:40pm locally.

December 10th, 2009 susan

they call many times/day, never leave a message. I screen all my calls. i've had 2 calls in the last 3 hours.

November 20th, 2009 Maria NY

I've been getting calls from this number sometimes during the daytime and sometimes at night. No one leaves any message. I received the last call at 8:49 am, eastern time, today.

November 18th, 2009 rzs NY

If you never gave them $ before and you're on the Do Not Call list, you can report them to DNC registry here:

complaints.donotcall.gov

If enough people report them, perhaps they'll be investigated. They've been calling me at night for a week. I can set my phone to auto-block them but someone should do something.

October 23rd, 2009 Jenna MA

Please make them stop calling!

October 17th, 2009 Bob

They have called 3, 4, 5 times a day for the last 3 or 4 weeks. I never answer - goes to voicemail, but this does not deter them. Sometimes they'll call twice - a second time within a few seconds of the last call. Obviously, this is annoying beyond words.

October 9th, 2009 Dave NJ

Every night at about 715pm we get a call from "California". It is extremely annoying.How can we get them to stop?

September 23rd, 2009 M.S. VA

I suspect this is a phishing outfit. I would not be lured into calling them back or giving them my number for their "do not call" list. That probably just nets then a list of actual numbers to use for telemarketing. Probably allowing voice mail to get rid of them does the same thing, as would answering the phone. I wonder if anything can be done to rid ourselves of this kind of annoying stuff.

Akways call my cell phone - never a message. Call multiple times a day.

August 28th, 2009 D. Tanner WA

called 6 p.m. no message

August 1st, 2009 Gary CA

Calling two to three times a day. What a PITA

June 20th, 2009 jd in georgia GA

The caller is Telefund, Inc. www.telefund.com , 3550 Wilshire Blvd, Suite #1260, Los Angeles, CA 90010, (213) 487-9500 . To try to stop these annoying calls, I just dialed their number (213-487-9500), let their message play, then followed instructions for putting my phone number on the company's "do not call" list. The instructions were: press 304 and say your phone number twice. (I hope it worked!)

May 7th, 2009 Tom MD

It turned out that their caller fails. It was planned parenthood (in this case), they got through the next time. I told them they have a problem and they will look into it.

May 5th, 2009 NT OK

I receive a phone call from them at least 1 or 2 times a day. I do have caller ID, so I don't answer the phone. However, I did answer it once and there was nothin but silence. I would NEVER give them a donation!!!!!!!! They are a pain in the ___!!!!!!!!!!!!!

April 17th, 2009 Sandy

They just call and hang up when I answer, days of it. I don't have caller ID but did get the number. It just makes me want to never donate money to anyone again.

April 17th, 2009 Sandy

They keep calling my house too but never talk, they just call and hang up

March 23rd, 2009 Barbara NY

Someone called and sounded a little intoxicated asking for someone, I did not understand what she was saying. This is the first time anyone ever said anything since the 10 or ll calls they have made to me. They usually just hang up. These calls are very annoying.

February 28th, 2009 Terry NC

I too have gotten calls from Telefund, Inc. The phones will ring two or three times. They hang up without leaving a message.

Well, the calls have ceased. The answer to rid the annoying calls was in my telephone book. The custom feature is called "Selective Call Rejection". Dial *60 to activate the service and listen to the recorded instruction. The caller is put on a "do not disturb list" and your phone won't ring if they call.

Please check your telephone books for the custom feature and service. Or, contact your telephone provider to obtain the feature. It may be free dependant on your state, etc. I didn't subscribe for the feature from my telephone service provider named "Windstream".

I wish you all luck!

February 26th, 2009 C in CT CT

Getting calls from Telefund Inc 213-487-9500, almost daily. 2/25/09, today, they called again at 4:10 PM, while I was out. I did answer yesterday and a woman asked for me by name. I had donated to the ASPCA and they wanted more money. I told her that I would relay her message (to me). Everybody wants money. I'd like to be sure that my donation actually helps the animals, and not to pad an executive's salary.

February 10th, 2009 Caroline

Someone named Larry (I asked who's calling) asked for my husband. When I got him, the person hung up.

February 9th, 2009 Kay NC

Caller hangs up when answering machine picks up. Have had several calls in the last week.

January 26th, 2009 SAM OR

15 calls from this number, no messages left. Very irritating and creepy. I'm on the Do Not Call List for solicitations too.

January 22nd, 2009 Kay NC

Telefund hung up when answering machine picked up the call. Seems like the "Do not call" list is not working well.

January 17th, 2009 Denise MN

They are calling every night at the same time. Never leave a message. argh.

January 10th, 2009 Teri

Tried Tom's suggestion and it worked very easily.

November 22nd, 2008 Joe Wolf CA

Continued evening calls from this number.

November 21st, 2008 Shelly TX

Saw list of their "charities" on another # list. I have never given to any of those charities and do not appreciate getting called on my cell phone. I did not answer tonight and will not answer in the future.

November 14th, 2008 Karen S. Meehan IL

Didn't answer, left no message, I will not be taking their calls.

October 31st, 2008 Tom CO

Call the number back and go to ext 304. Give them your number and they say they will remove it in 24 hrs

July 16th, 2008 heron

Did not leave a message. Supposed to be a fundraiser for progressive organizations (ACLU, PETA, etc.). I'll not be answering their calls. Hope they'll stop!


How do I stop them from calling?

  1. Ask the unwanted caller to stop calling and put you on their do not call list (they are legally required to comply).
  2. If your number is registered with the National Do Not Call Registry you can file a complaint with the FTC.
  3. Block them with a call blocker or something like Nomorobo.
