These guys also claimed to be from a Law Office in AZ. My Lawyer is filing a complain with the bar association in AZ. I hear those jails of Sheriff Joe Arpaio get up to 120 and you get to wear pink. Enjoy

They called yet again today.

December 18th, 2011 Jim WA

This call comes in once in the morning and once in the evening. When picked up, no one answers?

persistent little buggers.

The current Charity Navigator rating is a lukewarm two of four stars, under the system revised three months ago. Let's not forget the suspect behavior of March of Dimes is multiplied by the commercial fundraisers it hires each year to pelt us with calls from rotating numbers.

Each Autumn our area is routinely swamped in ''MoD'' calls from InfoCision, the gorilla sized beggar firm in Akron. This season the calls are often abandoned, the ring patterns often too short for any human to respond, and when a human rep is finally caught, one hears the same tiresome misleading and scripted claim that stuffing envelopes to send to all your ''Dear Neighbors'' is somehow not the same as soliciting funds.

These non-sales calls are exempt from federal DNC list scrubbing, even though hired call centers are very much for-profit and pocket much of what their periodic campaigns collect. However, as commercial entities, the boiler rooms are 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.

Because I know very well a verbal ''shut up'' demand will either be ignored or conveniently forgotten by the next campaign, a cease-comm notice has been sent to InfoCision via USPS Certified with return card. My request was for all numbers affected to be placed on a master ''no call'' list, so that I cannot be disturbed about MoD, American Heart, American Lung, Saint Jude, and many other repeat can shakers.

The March of Dimes charity, which frequently describes its name on your caller ID as “MOD,” has been phoning frantically leading up to the Christmas holiday. The ten phone numbers I have seen from them, and blocked since 10/18/11, include 240-210-7121, 410-202-0116, 571-261-0034, 804-234-9034, 914-368-2551, 914-368-2553, 914-740-1892, 914-740-1895, 914-740-1896 and 914-740-1897.

I’d recommend that everyone who receives one of these calls block these numbers or, if you have no call blocking telephone equipment, that you simply not answer the phone.

How good a charity is the March of Dimes? The following description of “MOD” is from the current Wikipedia article:

The March of Dimes has been described as a bureaucracy that has taken on a life of its own through a classic example of a process called goal displacement. Faced with redundancy after Jonas Salk discovered the polio vaccine, it adopted a new mission, "fighting birth defects", which was recently changed to a vaguer goal of "breakthrough for babies", rather than disbanding.

Charity Navigator has given the organization a rating of one out of four stars based on its financial filings, meaning "Fails to meet industry standards and performs well below most charities in its Cause." It also notes that the president Jennifer Howse was paid $633,132 in 2010.

How much money could be left for those who really need some help after paying the March of Dimes president over $600,000 per year and absorbing the expense of the vicious phone call campaign they are putting on just now? Please make your donations locally to a legitimate charity that will spend most of it on those who are in dire need rather than on lining the pockets of the charity officers and other “administrative expenses.”

These guys called me seven times a day. I have been home sick and they start at 7 to 9:30 at night. Fed Up with the passive view my phone carrier takes. They will not help its your problem. So I am going to keep logging every single call they make, and I will get a dam good lawyer. DO NOT GIVE TO THESE GUYS. They have very passive aggressive telemarketing staff. They even use throw away phones with nasty messages to further piss you off if you have the balls to say No thanks.

They call once or twice a day. They will never get a penny from me.

December 14th, 2011 rlb MO

I called the number several times but only got a voice recording that said they couldn't take my call and to leave a message. There was no mention of March of Dimes.

December 12th, 2011 hvy FL

I donate money but will never donate to any assholes who thinks that calling me several times a week, again and again and demand money is a good way to conduct business. Fuck Your Assholes. You assholes clain to March of Dimes. Of course you are liers and theives. You want to steal our money! Folks, these idiots belong in jail! Please do not give them any money. If you want do donate money to charity please contact the charity directly and they will show you how to donate. Thank you looking my note. Don"t get fucked by these assholes. They are 99.9 % of all idiots on the internet. They are idiots liers and theives. Please be very careful before you donate, otherwise you money is stoley by crimanals.

I, too, have been bombarded from the March of Dimes with calls from various numbers. I have blocked them as received. I tried " Karen's" suggestion. Let's see if they follow through. If they don't I'll make sure not to donate to them in the future.

The caller i.d. says either MOD or March of Dimes. Call back the phone number - it was an automated message when the phone picked up. Press 1 to "Learn More About the March of Dimes" and then press 3 to remove your phone number. You'll have to enter your phone number but listen carefully when it's repeated back to you because it didn't get my phone number right several times. It said it will remove your phone number from the system within a few days. These guys have driven me nuts for the past couple months. They start calling shortly after 8 a.m. and keep calling numerous times throughout the day until almost 9 p.m. I have an unlisted number and am on the DoNotCall Registry - I shouldn't have to unplug my phone before bed to be able to sleep in on Saturday. I called every single number that said MOD/March of Dimes that was stored on my caller i.d. and entered my phone number so we'll see.

Received a phone call prior to 9:00 AM on a Sat. morning - how do I get them to stop calling! I refuse to pick up my home phone if I do not recognize the phone #

march of dimes calls from many different numbers/cities which i block using my phone 'block' feature. but you can call the number back and press '2' and at the end of the message they ask if you would like to be removed from the call list. enter your phone number. it says they have 30 days to remove you, so hopefully it gets done eventually. it has been really annoying to have these calls almost everyday!

December 6th, 2011 TK FL

Another call from somebody claiming to be March of Dimes. They call almost every day and sometimes twice a day. I will never pay money to any telemarketer.

9:25am Dec 6th, Waldorf, MD on caller ID. Love COMCAST call screening!


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.
