February 8th, 2014 Lisbon CT

Pre-recorded message from Credit Card Services with a pitch they'll lower my credit card rates. whether it's true or not, a reverse phone look-up indicates it's a T-Mobile cell phone from Lancaster, Pennsylvania. You can't stop these calls to your home no matter which button they tell you to push. Hang up on them!

February 7th, 2014 Brooke SD

When I told "Steve" we do not have any credit cards. He said "what the f**k" and hung up on me. Very professional.
We are debt free and do not have a single card in our name. DO NOT BELIEVE THEM!!!!

February 7th, 2014 Paula Crist VA

When I told caller not interested, he told me to "suck his dick hole, got it bitch". Really, you have nerve to call me and say that to me on a phone line I pay for. Crazy

February 5th, 2014 Rosetta B IN

They have called a bazillion times and usually we aren't home...well today I was. I pushed 1 to speak with a representative and someone with a deep voice immediately picked up. As soon as they tried to get their spiel out...I told them I wasn't interested and only wanted to speak to someone about getting my number off this calling list! They hung up!

February 4th, 2014 Colmcille MI

Hey everyone. Just to give you a heads up. Yes, the name you are seeing on your caller id is indeed me. However, this has not been my number since July, 2013. Someone else is now using the number and my name is still attached to the caller id. I am working with a company to have my name detached from this number. I also contacted the FBI and reported that someone or a company is using this number to try and scam people. I've actually had people hunt me down through facebook and other places to ask that I stop calling. It's not me. Just so you know. And I've tightened up my privacy settings on these sites to help protect my privacy. I do hope it get resolved soon. (That was supposedly from Amber Albright; This is very phony-looking... Those who don't bother spelling well or using grammar rules are always suspicious to me on Face-GOSSIPbook)

Just received a call from this number regards lowering interest rate on credit cards. Made contact with a Joshua. Berated him so badly regards these calls that he hung up. We need to be able to do something about these nuisance calls.

I have gotten this call and, I don't know the person he keeps asking for and I have told him to stop calling my house. He says "i know I gt the right number", i say no you don't and stop calling my house. I was told to notify the police and report it to them. i will be doing that today.
The guy who calls isn't pleasant at all, very rude. I too am on the do not call list, so I have made a complaint with them also.

Credit Card Services SCAM.... lower your rates... blah blah blah... Should be able to track back to the telephone providers in near-real-time and cut them off after a few minutes... Where is the precious Do Not Call List FTC???? Abolish them and replace with a private company at 1/10 the cost, better results and more accountability.... More govt is not the answer.

A voice asked, "Is Richard there?"
I said,"That's me."
The caller hung up.
I think that, if they didn't wish to speak with me, they should not have called.
I also think that 8:45 PM is too late for such nonsense.

Card Services offering me my "last chance" to lower my interest rates.


January 6th, 2014 Badman MA

Calls frequently; mostly the caller hangs up when answering machine message kicks in. This is in my view some kind of credit card or debt payment hustle.

(678) 606-5610

January 5th, 2014 Jennifer GA

Very friendly guy asking for the person by first name only...then asking for the man or lady of the house, but won't leave a message or state the reason for the call....Calls every night, so much for being on the NO CALL REGISTRY.

January 5th, 2014 Ramon GA

This guy calls even on Sundays. hH uses the tactic as if he is a friend. he says, "hey Ramon!" or "Ramon, you there?" Of course I don't pick up. But it's annoying. How can they call on Sundays. He never leaves a message other than calling my name on the answering machine.

December 19th, 2013 Precious VA

This person continues to call everyday and leaves no message. It doesn't matter if you are on a Do Not Call List, Pushished/unpublished ... they have no respect for you and your household. If they were getting harrassed by unnecessary calls ... they TOO would be pissed. STOP IT AND GET A REAL JOB!!!!!!!! Many are out of work, going through stressful times and they don't seem to CARE. Got a life with the Holy Spirit and leave us alone!!!!!

Did not leave a message so I called the number back and got a recording that stated they were Fundraising Information Center collecting for A LEADING CHILDREN'S CHARITY, MEDICAL ORGANIZATION, VETERAN'S ORGANIZATION OR A SERVICE ORGANIZATION!!! What?? People please do not donate to these no name charities especially ones like this that their business is to do nothing but solicit money on behalf of different charities. 90% of the money that you donate never leaves their pockets and the actual charity only gets 10% of what you donate. And how do you know that any money at all is going to the charity they say it is going to?? Please send any donations directly to the charity of your choice where you know 100% stays where it is supposed to.

September 15th, 2013 Jesse PA

We couldn't answer; our Digitone call blocker picked it up before the second ring. We block every call out of our area... and a few within our local areas. It is easy: program 97#* and 50 followed by the area codes that you want to get through. You can also invite the occasional 800 number that you want to get through. No political calls; no charitable calls (we contribute to the organizations that we are involved in); no travel clubs and no scammers... hooray! Why an I pushing our call blocker? If enough people that are targeted (we're retired, travel, etc.) get call blockers the unwanted calls won't pay for themselves. The National State Police Troopers Association sounds legitimate doesn't it? Send them $5.00 and 1,000 more fake charities will call you.

I have asked these people NUMEROUS times to quit calling us, to take us off their list. Sometimes they say okay; sometimes they hang up when the get the answering machine. I don't know if they are legitimate with lazy telemarketers, or a scam looking for empty houses to rob.

(786) 358-9718

July 14th, 2013 Jason MI

My caller ID states the name as: "CHARITY". Now I don't mind giving to non-profit groups and orgnizations even by telephone because I know that telemarketing is the best way for groups to raise funds, sell tickets to shows, etc. However, I ONLY give to groups that are in my local area or at least my own state of Michigan. I thought that 786 area code is Chicago (I lived in Chicago for many years) so I did not answer the telephone and let it go straight to voice mail. Turns out 786-358 is from the Miami FL area. I hope they do not call again.

The caller was soliciting funds for the American Homeless Veterans charity. Which means they are exempt from the toothless DNC list.

I didn't call you." The guy, said his name is Nick. Tried to argue that I had called him. When I began to laugh loudly he hung up.

October 27th, 2012 KB PA

Sorry, Crissy, there are too many thug-like fake ''hero charities'' for me to trust that ''all you have to do'' is ask nicely for calls to end. This is likely to be a commercial fundraiser, thus subject to the Telemarketing Sales Rule. Such a call center must keep and add to an internal no-call list or else risk a consumer lawsuit.

This is a legit cause and charity that they are calling for. All you have to do is answer the phone and say please take me off the call list, they will do it. I spoke with them and complained about all the calls. I am set up to only be contacted every 3 months now. I do like to donate, and they do leave a tax deductible receipt. I just didn't have items to give every time they called. So I am only contacted every 3 months. Its been over 2 months and I have not received any calls just as I requested.

This scammer has called four times in three days, including twice today. (This web site has a bug that prevents more than one report per day.) They either don't leave a message, or they leave a message that is just crackling noise.

These are the people who pick up your good items. I often give to Goodwill but you have to deliver your items to their store. This group of Texas Veterans, have a thrift store, and they will come to your house and pick up your charity items. They are the best!!!

February 3rd, 2011 Joe TX

These people are ruthless, calling at all hours, sometimes several times a day, refusing to remove our number, and ensuring that we will never donate to them. This all started when we gave a donation to Texas Paralyzed Veterans, which we will NEVER do again.

This number called my home 7 times in one night (3-NOV-10) between the hours of 5:30 PM and 8:45 PM. On the 4th call I told them we had nothing for them and to stop calling. On the 5th call I just hung up. On the 6th Call I very explicitly told them to stop calling and on the 7th call I asked to speak to a supervisor, was put on hold and then hung up on.

If you receive a call from TBS, and you ask them to not call you back, and they refuse, all the San Francisco District Attorney, TBS if you Google it was less than 20% actually goes to the charity they raise for (SFgate 3/2003) And if you tell them not to call you back and they continue to do so, that represents harassment. If they claim to be a Police Officer get their name and badge number and the police station they work at in San Francisco.

You have rights, and you do not have to be harassed if you don't want to donate to this company!

March 27th, 2010 M.R. in Waco TX

Two months ago, I blocked a 512 area code (Austin) number from "Clothing Donate" (as it appears on the caller ID), then within a week, an area code 214 (Dallas area) Clothing Donate number started calling me and I blocked that. Now I get calls from 512-443-3336 listed as "out of area" on the ID - looks like it's these same jokers. We live 100 miles from both cities - what's their deal with used clothes from other cities?!! I never answer and they never leave a message.

March 25th, 2010 NorthAustinite TX

these people are relentless, they've called despite repeated attempts to remove my name over the last 8 years. I thik that they think they are exempt from telemarketing law because they are a charity. In the past 6 months they've even started calling from an additional 210 area code number that says "clothing donate" on the caller ID

March 13th, 2010 Rudy C Resendez TX

This company calls at least three to four times per day at various time; early morning, mid morning, afternoons as well as evenings. I've answer before and told them to remove our name and number from their calling list. The people state I have to call a different number. When I call all I can do is leave a msg. They stop calling for about one or two months then it starts up again.

Two calls today. I didn't answer, and they hung up before the answering machine picked up. The second call was shortly before 9 p.m. and woke up my husband, who was trying to catch up on sleep after being up most of the previous night for work. If I find out what "charity" or political organization they represent, I'll be sure never to contribute to them.

I have received numerous calls from these clowns! One time I called this number back and was told this the March of Dimes. If the March of Dimes is using a commercial fund raiser to call, then they get NOTHING from me from now on. A commercial fund raiser will take from about 80% to 95% of your donation and give the REST to the charity. I don't know what it's going to take to convince these commercial-fund-raising idiots to quit calling me, but I plan on blowing a whistle in their ear everytime they call from now on. Maybe if I can deafen a few of them, they might take the hint.

"Call centers" use computerized auto-dialers with large lists of phone numbers. These systems filter "no answers","busy signals", etc. When the system decides a call has been answered, it transfers the call to the telemarketer. This takes a few seconds.
Meanwhile, you've said "Hello!" three times before he/she even knows you're there! That explains why it seems nobody is there.
Remember: They cannot say they are calling "FROM" any Law Inforcement or Firefighter organization. They are calling "ON BEHALF OF" or "FOR THE" said organization, "FROM" the commercial fund raising company.
Remember: The County Sheriff's "OFFICE", and the various Police and Fire "DEPARTMENTS" in our community are NOT charitable organizations. They are local government agencies assigned the duty of protecting and serving the citizens. They do not call your home for funds. However,for decades, some of these local heroes have organized themselves outside of their respective agencies, creating charitable "FOUNDATIONS","ASSOCIATIONS", etc., each with their certain focus of improving the community and assisting those who are in need. Don't let these telemarketers change your opinion of the importance of supporting them.
Remember: You are NOT making a "DONATION". You are buying a ticket. With that ticket, you are entitled to attend the specified event. Therefore, it IS NOT a tax deduction. The ticket is assumed to have value...the cost of producing the event. I guess the real problem is that 20% is better than nothing. They've been doing this for decades.

The corporate phone number for Meyer Teleservices is 1-800-676-9233.

I decided not to use their on-line DNC registration because it asks for my e-mail address.

When I called to put my number on their DNC list, the person who took my phone information told me my number would be removed within 30 days.

I told him I would post their number on the internet so everyone could call them and hang up. Have fun people!

July 22nd, 2008 koehler MI

This was a call from the Democratic Party asking for State donations for the State of Michigan. I believe that various organizations
hire this service seeking funding. I have blocked the number with my phone service, but I have found that such businesses
have up to 10 phone numbers, so when one is blocked they use another and another and another. I can block just 10 numbers
total with my present phone service.

As I understand it, being on the "do not call" list does not prevent political or charitable organizations
from calling you. Nor does it prevent any business from calling you, with whom you have had transactions after joining the list.

First call came thru at 12:21pm on 6/30/08. When I answered, caller asked for my mother and indicated she was from Democratic National Committee (caller ID said "Business Center). I told her my mother, who was recovering from surgery, was having her lunch and was not interested in taking the call. I hoped that would end it.

On 7/1/08, calls came through from the same number again, first at 12:34 p.m. and then at 1:09 p.m. I was away from the house and my mother answered the phone--no one was there either time. Same day, the call came through again (3:11 p.m.) and, when my mother answered, the woman asked by name for either my mother or me. My mother again told her she was recovering from surgery and was not interested. We are on the Do Not Call list and are tired of getting these calls.

June 19th, 2008 Cathie MI

The # was registered on the do not call list as soon as it was available and was renewed on the list this year. My parents don't give any information about me and my siblings and where to reach us but they do try to take messages when a call comes in for one of us. The womanon the phone was rude and nasty when my father tried to get info from her.

Is This Happening To You?

On behalf of those who have previously retained us, the law firm of Fineberg Gresham is investigating complaints from consumers being harassed with calls and text messages to their cell phones. If you have received calls or text messages to your cell phone by telemarketers or others who did not have your express permission to contact your cell phone or wish to report any complaints regarding this practice, www.stoptelemarketingabuse.com (this will send an email to our office). We are gathering factual information to determine the nature, extent and scope of the problem for those who have retained our law firm. All messages will be held confidential.

What Can You Do to Assist in Our Investigation?

If you have been the victim of this telemarketing abuse, preserve all facts and evidence of the unwanted calls or texts. Save the message.

Dear Mr. M. Ferlise,
Well it seems that according to Jimm, there is some homecooking in that the police org's need TBS Productions for their fund raisers in order to keep the doors open. Where is the State of California in all of this and why do they not have enough funds to come to financial aide of the local Police Depts thru out CA.? It seems the State of CA charges businesses more than enough each year in taxes and relicensing fees just do business in the State of Ca ($800 p/yr)that should cover local Police fundings. Not to mention the hefty taxes that CA. residents pay the to the State of Ca. just to live here.

It appears that either Ferlise has died or become ill or just plain given up on the cause of relentlessly calling people for donations as the postings have stopped here at least for the time being. And that is a good thing! Maybe the hint to all future posters or readers of this site to call in the authorities on Ferlise for phone stalking was enough to get him to stop. Hope so.. But if we wanted to we could get together and file a class action on Ferlise in small claims court for phone harrassment and ask for damages up to $7500.00 which if we won could be split amongst the Plaintiffs' of the suit. So think before acting Ferlise as there is those of us that know the legal system in and out and will take steps to get a court judgement on you if you DO NOT stop the phone harrassments.

1-800-679-0336 (The Dove Foundation) on January 30, 2007 at 2:44 pm on my private unlisted cell phone number.
When I asked them why they were calling me even though I was on the Do Not Call list, they said that they are
a non-profit foundation so that they are allowed to evade this requirement. Looks like not for profit is the loophole.

November 27th, 2007 ewa OK

Folks who claim to be on the Do Not Call Registry--

You can be, and non-profits (like the Dove foundation) CAN STILL call you. Certain organizations are exempt. You have to ask the specific non-profit to remove you from their calling list-- or, better yet, equip your phone with blocking capabilities.

don't call the police. tbs is a police fundraiser. according to an old article in the frisco chronicle,
they do cold calls and give police orgs 1 or 2 dimes for every dollar they raise. then they pocket
the rest of the money. the problem is that nobody else can raise money for the cops successfully,
and the calif. atty. genl., which is a police org. itself, won't shut 'em down.

I noticed the complaints about this number stopped around the end of September, 2007. So, I decided to see if they changed numbers or modus operandi. Indeed, there is a now another number being reported here on whocalled.us that sounds like the same folks using the same robotic voice responses. Go to the top of this web page and type in the following number: 5712836422 You will see a lot of the same modus operandi. They can run but they can't hide. I did not receive a call lately from 800-679-0336. I merely wanted to let people know that they should look at complaints for the new number.

October 31st, 2007 Phone Guy CA

Just a reminder - Even if you are on the national do not call registry you can still receive phone calls from Non-profit organizations or companies you've recently/currently have business with (i.e. credit card companies trying to sell you on their credit protector, or policeman's ball fund raising.) However if you request to be removed from their list and they STILL call you then you can file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission @ www.ftc.gov

October 23rd, 2007 Donatella CA

He has been calling us for one month now at least 3x a week at all diff times. I am considering notifying the Police and filing a stalker report against him. I think everyone should pitch in and do their part and also file stalker reports with their local police departments. You may also want to print out your phone bill and give it to the police to show that Ferlise is the Caller number on your bill. This is the proof. If enough people file stalker reports on Ferlise and Tbs Productions then the Police will have to look into it. And this could lead to a possible arrest or at the least a very strong warning from our local community and Police that we are not going to stand for this any longer. This phone stalker has to be revealed to the Police that's all there is to it! So make the call folks and tell the police to also look at this website page for more proof that Ferlise is stalking not only you by many others as well.

So Ferlise.....this is what is in store for you if you keep up the phone stalking!! We are all sick and tired of you....YOU CREEEpy Wrinkly Old Man!!!...

Michael Ferlise:

Bay Area police and firefighter organizations that raised money for charity relied almost exclusively on a single firm, TBS Productions, which is based in Campbell. That firm used about 80 percent of the money that was raised for these charities in 2001, according to Lockyer's report.

Groups that used TBS Productions include the San Francisco and San Mateo police associations, deputy sheriffs' associations for Alameda, San Francisco and San Mateo counties, and the San Francisco Firefighters Charitable Fund, according to the report.

"We're very happy with them. We've had a run with them going on 15 years," said Chris Cunnie, president of the San Francisco police union. "They are very professional."

TBS Productions raised $462,069 for the San Francisco police union in 2001, but handed over only $98,017 -- a 21 percent return, the report said. Cunnie said all $98,017 was distributed to local charities, including neighborhood associations, disease-prevention groups and senior citizens.

Officials with TBS Productions did not return calls for comment.

October 6th, 2007 LEAnn CA

TBS Productions:

State law requires fund-raising companies to reveal how much will go to charity if a consumer asks, but many donors simply trust that their money is going directly to the charity.

Johns said telemarketing firms raising money in the name of law enforcement can confuse donors who immediately believe they are getting a call from the actual police or sheriff's department. She said any telephone solicitor pretending to be a member of law enforcement can be prosecuted.

"Even with all the public education we've done, they still think it's the sheriff's department," Johns said. "If the fund-raiser allows the donor to think that he is calling from the police department or is a volunteer or an officer, that can be enough to file a case."
