The phone is ringing, and I don't recognize the number, All Caller ID says is, "NAME UNAVAILABLE".
Please help me figure out who is calling and what they want
Healthy Babies |
They call every morning between 8:30 and 9, but don't leave a
healthybabies calls from 6 phone numbers:
sorry that was www.homesolarusa.com
Says they are www.homesolar.com ... very strange webpage
This was at last second call from that number. I had answered on a previous call and after saying hello several times a person with a strong accent came on asking for Mr. or Mrs. (name not pronounced correctly). I asked who was calling since the caller ID said "name not found" and he gave his first name and indicated he was calling from some solar panel company. I told him he shouldn't be calling since we are on the do not call list and asked him not to call again. So today there's another call from that same number. Exasperating.
When I pickup there is a pause then when I say jello they hangup. *69 tells me, "You've reached a non working number - message 4T 1118
Call the number and you get call can't be completed as dialed. dirt bags
no message left, no idea who tried calling us
according to caller complaints --Spoofed Numbers: Caution, 243-345-6789 is a "spoofed" number, which means that whoever called you "tricked" your caller ID to display an incorrect phone number. Telemarketers do this so you cannot complain, but they failed... you can still file a complaint here to fight back against unethical telemarketers.
Caller ID shows "MOD" - calling back the number gets a recored message about the March of Dimes. If you listen to the end, you have the option to press 3 to stop further calls. I tried this and don't yet know whether it works...
They call at least once a day every day. I picked up today and the lady said it was March of Dimes but she was selling anything. I immediately told her to take me off their call list. Hoping...
Make them stop. Call twice a day at least in the past week! If it is the March of Dimes I'll never give them another dime. Maybe the real March of Dimes will stop them to avoid losing donors!
They call me EVERY DAY. I answer, they hang up.
March of Dimes - but I can assure you that no money ever is given to them. This is a scam
outfit just trying to get your money. Even though I have asked them many times to stop calling
me - they won't. The computer robo calls you at all times and any day them program in. I had
to turn my ringer off just to stop hearing the phone ring all day. There should be a way to get
them to stop but I haven't found it yet.
caller id states anonymous. Calls several times daily, even sunday! Please leave a message or LEAVE me alone!!!!!!!
Here we go again!!!!one of the MANY numbers for the MARCH of DIMES!!!caller ID read: "HEALTHY BABIES"....the MOD should be ashamed of itself for such low life behavior!...turned into telemarketers!!!!!
I didn't answer. He/she/they/it did not leave a message. Guess they didn't really want to contact me/us!
They will not give up calling you. THEY WANT YOUR MONEY!
March of Dimes will hound you. They will not not go away. THEY WANT YOUR MAONEY!
So here we go again!these fools stopped for about 6mo. now they are STARTING AGAIN!!! they used to be listed as "the March of Dimes',..now they are back calling at early AM hours!!!BLOCK THEM IF YOU CAN!!!it's all a scam!They use many numbers at least six,to eight at least.They just keep changing the last few decimals.If they ARE the real MOD they should be ashamed of themselves!!!
Frequent calls from this "MOD", whoever it is!! He/she/they/it (robocaller? Probably!) never leaves a message. I don't answer.
Calls almost every day.I never pick up.
Idiots call at 8;00 in the mornings, on Sundays, you name it. I don't answer unknown calls & they never leave a message, so who knows what or who this is.
Annoying, calls 7 Days a seek, at various times of the day, I think it is the March of Dimes.
It's a scammer. They call even through I have told them to stop for months.
Very annoying. They call several days every day now.
Calls at least 3 times a day, 7 days a week including sundays
These idiots have called at least 30 times...one at 9:45 PM and this morning at 8:14 AM!! How do we get them to STOP?
This number...well at least name...has called several times weekly for a good month or so. To reply to one prior comment from John, unfortunately charities are exempt from the do not call registry, as they are not considered telemarketers. I know, it annoys me too!
did a call back it's the march of dimess

We've had three phone calls; I've submitted three complaints!
MOD probably a robo call
I receive numerous calls from this number per week. They do not leave a message, they just hang up. If you need to call me several times a week, then leave a message or stop calling me. I called the number back and I just get a busy signal. These calls are getting annoying and I am on the do not call list.
Called and hung up if answered.If unanswered left no message on answering machine. Has called three times in the last week.
Just received call from this number. Caller Id says "Healthy Babies."
Called number and they said it was March of Dimes. Gave me option to remove from their list. Will see if this happens.
They have been calling for the past few days but never leave a message. The caller id says "Healthy Babies". I think they are playing on the "healthy babies" thing. I have no idea who they are and will not pick up the phone. Wish I had more space to block more calls. My call block function is full.
My ID said they were anonymous but when I ask who was calling she said March of Dime . This is a big scam!
It's SUNDAY!!!!! this group calls every day...just called today about 30" ago.
Healthy Babies"?? same (914-294) 2500,2468,2508 & many variations on the last 4 digits of phone no. Have been reporting to Fed do not call list for months???? never ans these calls, no one there anyhow. this is SENIOR HARASSMENT & disturbing!
No one there when I answered. Just heard a clicking sound.
No one there when I answered
I believe this is a solicitation for "The March of Dimes.
The 914-294-XXXX exchange is used by scammers pretending to be from the March of Dimes, Healthy Babies, etc. I bought a Digitone Call Blocker that allows me to block specific telephone numbers, exchanges, or entire area codes. The 253 (Washington State) and 808 (Hawaii) area codes are used a lot by scammers, so I blocked both of those since I don't know anybody who lives there. I suggest buying a call blocker. Mine blocks about 12 to 15 calls daily and saves me the trouble of running to the phone to see who's calling.
Called the number back and got a message stating it was the March of Dimes.
Calls several times a day. Don't these scam artists get it...if we don't answer, we don't want to hear their plea. Get a real job!
Calls numerous times and does not leave a message.
After another call yesterday from the 914 prefix it starts again today. This is 7 this week so far. I'm sick of these calls. I won't answer and they never leave a message. This has got to stop!!!!!
Has called two days in a row, twice today. Don't hear anything on other end and I don't say anything when answer. I'm on the do not call list.
called me twice today. they did not leave a message when I didn't answer, there was no one on the line when I did answer
Not at home when they called. No message. ID said "Healthy Babies."
This number called my home phone number. Did not answer if they could not identify who they were in the id box
No Message left. Calls all the time.
Numerous calls. No one there when I answer
called didn't leave a message.
They call at least once a day, never leave a message. I,too, am skeptical about the 345-6789. Must be some kind of scam/sales pitch. Once again, the DNC list proves itself to be useless.
when you call back the number the recording says march of dimes, leave a message. no way. sounds like one of these horrible telemarketers.
26 June 2012 -- 4:08 pm -- caller ID said unknown name. No message was left. Skeptical about the conspicuous consecutive number 345-6789.
Mean and Kristen: Your caller does not maintain this site or this web page. You will not get compliance with your orders until you deliver them DIRECTLY to your caller. 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.
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.
Linked below find the simple steps I took to rid myself of a major pain boiler room, very possibly the same one running the current March of Dimes campaign in your area, by politely rubbing its face in federal laws. You will note that I never rely on verbal cease-communication demands.
I receive calls from this phone number 914-979-2815 everyday. PLease remove my phone number (972-492-7092) from your call list. I AM NOT INTERESTED!!!!!!!!
they call everyday when i take my nap before work. I work late. if they keep it up they will be marching away from a sock filled with dimes....MOD... STOP CALLING...
no message left
Was a horrible connection (digital VOIP from India?), but I got "We aren't selling anything..." and questions about my PG&E bill average monthly cost. Call originated in India? Had to hang up due to poor connection/audio.
Reported as a DNCL violation
March of Dimes on ID keep asking them to stop calling but they still call 4-6 times a day.
A review of this thread may answer your suspicions, Steve: 9018819984
March of Dimes calls 3 times a day. 8:00am to 10:00am; midday and every evening during dinner.They have been calling for 3 weeks. I think it is the same telemarketing company that has called 30-40 times in a month caller id as: leukemia society; cancer society.
I get a call from this number about 6 times a day. (not even an exaggeration)
I don't know or care who this really is. I don't donate to organizations via the phone, since they usually employ professional fundraisers who get most of the money. These people are relentless and never leave a message.
I was very grateful to read the opt-out information!
Meanwhile, give to your local community organization, church, Salvation Army-people you know are really out there doing the work!
For the umpteenth time, the DNC registry is for telemarketers, meaning sales. Charities, debt collectors, political speech, and surveyors are all exempt as they are not included in the FTC definition of "telemarketing". This was made known to you when you registered your numbers. The exemptions can be arguably sales by another name, but that's the rule as written.
Commercial fundraisers who run these call centers are however expected to maintain internal no-call lists. You might look at the TCPA for options if requests for list entry are not sticking.
I have asked the March of Dimes multiple times to quit calling but the message hasn't sunk in. What good is the National Do Not Call Registry when the calls keep coming even though we've been on the list and filed multiple complaints about this number??
Again - all times of day and "early evening" why can't I opt out with Do Not Call ???
Call the number back and select "1" for more information on March of Dimes. At the end of the message, you can opt out by selecting "3". Sure hopes this ends the calls from this number as they have been calling at least once daily and when you answer, there is no one on the line!
They are relentless with their phone calls all times of the day. If you don't answer (I don't), they keep calling. I must get these 2 to 3 times a day!!!!
have been calling every day, several times a day, do not leave a message
Calls daily. No message left. Also call and hang up
Asked to speak with my wife who passed away more than two years ago.
I've been getting 2-3 calls a day from this number for the past week. My call I.D. justs reads "Pleasantville, NY." It stops after 3 rings. When I have answered, no one speaks, though I don't wait long.
Yet again it's time for the March of Dimes autumn campaign, being split between InfoCision of Akron and Haines & Co. of North Canton, Ohio. Haines is better known as Americalist, less better known as Ameridial. These are so-called "commercial fundraisers" hired both by real and fraudulent charities to pelt us for days and weeks and pocket most of the proceeds as profit. See reports from last year on 9147401890 and 9147401894.
In the 2009 campaign we received 58 calls between 17 Sep and 15 Dec from several rotating numbers. In early October it was twice a day. Often the caller would quit after three rings, and that same behavior is repeating this year.
Multiple calls, no message, hung up even when I answered. If and when they talk to me I'll waste their time and then ask to be put on their do not call list. The March of Dimes has one of the highest administration cost to actual benifit ratio of any charity. Since they claim to be a charity, they do not have to respect the national do not call list.
Calls frequently. Called 6 times beginning 9/9. Never leaves a message. Could be March of Dimes. I thought it might be American Diabetes Association or Discover Card. Both call so frequently it borders on harassment. I use caller id and never answer a number I do not recognize. I would be more receptive to their calls if they left a message. I feel badly for those who fill these call center jobs. I am sure they are not souless but just victims of this bad economy.
DID NOT LEAVE A MESSAGE
A decade ago, the March of Dimes was a decent and real charitable organization. Now, they will phone, harassment, force fed to living ppl by robotic machines over and over and over and over . . .
