CDN thanks you is the caller. They call daily and never leave a message. I don't believe I have ever donated to them.
This seems to be the ruse now...if once you do donate, they have your phone number and call to thank you, asking for another donation. That makes me want to stop donations to such agencies.

Stader, a sales caller does not need to ''honor'' your DNC registration, as the FTC tried to tell you when you listed.

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

You are likely to find the calls are placed by a commercial fundraiser, such as Associated Community Services, Dial America, Donor Services Group, Harris, InfoCision, MDS, and TeleFund. As commercial entities, these hired call centers 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.

I'm glad no one here followed the poor example of Mr. Powell in late 2011. It is unwise to publish a phone number you meant to protect in an open forum where any data harvester and scammer can find it.

Called back, "will answer in order called," music played, no one picked up.

Justin, how exactly is your charity caller to obey your demand when ''the private phone'' being affected is not magically revealed here to them? Have you maybe tried asking the caller *directly* to stop? Did you do that on paper and send it USPS Certified with return card so that the call center cannot feign ignorance?

Caller ID says "Children." I called the number back and it is an automated hang-up.

Answered the call, no one one the other end, perhaps a system collecting info on who answers the phone & when , so they can sell as viable list to other scammers who don't honor the Do Not Call Register!

I have gone to their website 3 times and added my name to their Do Not Call, list in the last 2 weeks. They say on their home page it takes about 72 hours to remove.
The organization identifies itself as Accountable Americans.org or .com.
I am on the National registry Do Not Call list.
Sometimes the caller ID says Caller Unknown, Out of Town or CDN thanks you.
I do not answer calls if I do not recognize the name, but they also leave a recorded message on VM.

We can file a small claims for $2,500 for each call made. I might be in if others are. . .

Received several calls from this number over several days. I never answer an unknown number; rather let the answering machine get it. If no message left, typically someone I don't want to talk to anyway. Thanks to this site, I determined the caller and added their number to my PhoneTray program. If you have a spare PC and a voice modem, give it a try. BTW, I am not a paid (or unpaid) representative of PhoneTray, it just happens to be what I use, and it's very effective.

Caller leaves no message!

January 17th, 2012 CMG PA

Rang up. From my fax line. Told rep to remove two numbers. He was irritated but said he had taken both numbers down and would remove same from DNC list.

We shall see.

January 17th, 2012 CMG PA

Rang up. Rep says it is a children's cancer charity.

Doesn't mean it is.

HELP KIDS 4 XMAS on January 15th? Are they a little late or very, very early? What good is "do not call"? Oh wait, it's a government agency.

December 1st, 2011 Emil PA

Repeated calls,no response when I answer. Caller ID just says childrens. They never leave a message, and when ou answer tghey hang up on you. Won't stop !!!

You got it almost right, ValSobo. The call itself is exempt from DNC list scrubbing but the hired boiler room has to listen when you say ''can it''. Very stubborn fundraisers may need a written cease-comm sent USPS Certified with return card.

For those just tuning in .... It's likely the calls are placed by a commercial fundraiser, such as Associated Community Services, Dial America, Harris, InfoCision, MDS, and TeleFund. The FTC rules say: ''... if a third-party telemarketer is calling on behalf of a charity, a consumer may ask not to receive any more calls from, or on behalf of, that specific charity. If a third-party telemarketer calls again on behalf of that charity, the telemarketer may be subject to a fine of up to $16,000.''

This fund raising organization calls 3 times a day every day. "Do Not Call Registry" says that charities may continue to contact even if you are registered HOWEVER it also says that anybody who under contract to make calls FOR the charity may not.

4 weeks ago they called saying they were from one of my husband's charities - I responded that was not possible/probable because we DO NOT donate to anything over the phone. Only by mail or in person. Also informed them we were on DNC and please remove us from their list. They hung up immediately without even good bye (I was polite to them - they were not to me).

Since that day our phone has been called by them 3x a day, same times every day, with nobody on the other other. I believe this is harassment for turning them down.

Thomas: 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. How you handle this depends on the type of caller and what's been said, which for the readers would have been very useful information to share. That is the function of a mystery caller site.

November 26th, 2011 D W Thomas WA

Please remove my phone number from your list. I do NOT give to charities and am very tired of receiving call and nobody is on the other end. I am also on the do not call list.
