> > > The phone # is NOT actually CWFA. It is a group of homosexuals retaliating against CWA. They are trying to make CWFA look bad.
Manny calls over the past week CWFA on caller id no one answers when you pick up the phone.
I am very much for The American Center for Law and Justice and am sympathtic to their cause, but this is harassment! I like Jay Sekulow and think this organization is working hard for Christian rights, but I don't like their tactics. I asked to be taken off their list, and I am still receiving calls. It makes Christians look very bad and some, in fact, do act like idiots. But, there are many wonderful Christians, and I am sure many in this organization are, but they need to understand that this is most definitely NOT the way to go about soliciting contributions. It is having just the opposite effect and turning people off or even against them. People who are being harassed - please forgive them. The cause is just, they must not realize how offensive their actions are (I'm trying to make excuses for them, but how can they not know this!). It makes me ashamed for them. I realize it takes money to fight for their causes, but wake up ACLJ and use a little wisdom in HOW you are going about implementing your fundraising because as it stands, you are hurting your cause with harassing tactics!!! I'm a Christian and these phone calls have turned me completely off. I will NEVER give a penny until this harassment stops for everyone.

I receive a call from CWFA 202-552-1966 at least three times a day, seven days a week. DO NOT CALL LIST is a total joke. Every number that I have reported in the past five years still is able to make their annoying calls to me.
is an organization exempt from do not call lists
I keep getting calls from phone number 202-552-1966. I finally answered it, since I'd been on this site before and knew ahead of time they're soliciters. A woman who clearly spoke English as a first language asked for me by my last name. I asked who was calling and though it was a terrible reception, I could make out the word 'women'. I couldn't make out the reset of what she was saying. I told her to please put me on her 'do not call list' and she said she would. Then I hung up on her.
Please remember, if you do answer the phone, you HAVE TO ask to be put on their do not call list.......or they'll keep calling you.
See Beverleys post below. "This is Ultra Conservative Right Wing Group. They're non-profit so National Do Not Call List doesn't apply to them but they have to stop calling if you notify them to stop. Here is main phone #:202-488-7000
." I am registered as a Repub but consider myself a libertarian. It is racist, fascist groups like this that should be destroyed. The person that answers the phone will direct you to the group that will remove you. That person (a racist, male-bashing, rediculous woman) claims your # will be removed whithin "a week or so". Im so mad I have to vote for a Dem just to go against CWFA!! But in this case HE IS the better choice! This set of calls was against Congressman Wolf (VA) GO VOTE!
They called, I answered, they hung up.
they don't seem to follow the rules on times to call. got one at 0830 this morning from these leaches.
Sorry, I mis labeled there name. It's American Center for Legal Justice
Call the number back and you'll get a recording stating the American League of Legal Justice has important political info for you. Follow the directions and you can get to an option to be removed from their call list. I tried it but it says it will take 30 days so not sure if it worked yet.
They called about three or four times in a row and kept letting it ring but I saw the ACLJ on the caller ID and the 202 area code and knew I didn't know them so I didn't answer. We are on the Do Not Call list but it doesn't seem to stop some calls like this one.
South Central Illinois 62450 ZIP
Somebody is spending money calling around and hanging up. Same thing here, when I picked up...nothing. Hello. Hello? nothing.
My number is on the Federal Trade Commission's (FTC) national Do Not Call registry.
Since early December 2007 I have been called about 15 times by this caller, sometimes twice a day. I have not answered the calls and no message is left on my voice mail. But each time I receive a call from this number I report it to the FTC using their online complaint format. I provide the date and time of the call.
If more people complained - even though the caller is supposed to be a nonprofit entity - the FTC would get an idea of how annoying these calls are, and (just maybe) they will do something about it. You, too, can complain at:
Click on "File A Complaint" on the left side of the web page.
These calls are from the ACLJ, according to Caller ID. Since they don't answer when you answer your phone, I suggest calling their official phone number: 1-800-296-4529
. Complain! If they get enough complaints, may be they'll get the message. Their mailing address is P.O. Box 90555, Washington, DC 20090-0555
Another option is calling you State Atorney General and complaining.
got waken up at 0815. I thought they couldn't call before 0900. I don't think charities should be exempt from the dnc list as I don't want them calling either....the whole reason I signed up it to quit getting annoyed with sales calls.
The automated caller did a survey regarding the upcoming presidential primary. Specifically, the questions drilled down to a final one: based on your feelings today, who would you vote for: Hillary Clinton or Rudy Guiliani? They collect demographics (age group, male/female, etc.). Said they were calling for a news channel and that the results would be on "Channel 8 NBC news," but my area doesn't have a local channel 8.
They continually call my house while I am sleepingand never leave any message. I nam on the national no call list. I want this harassment stopped.
If you call the number back, you can add your number to the don't call list. It appears to be another one of these non-profit companys that is exempt from the no call list. For example, the Veterans call me all the time and I tell them not to call and they say 'there is nothing you can do because we are non-profit'. Wow, that's a way to get me to contribute to your cause. LOL
They called at 9 am EST. Answered phone, dead air on their end and no message. CWFA on caller ID.
simply put: they call morning, noon and night - even weekends! When I answer, they say nothing. When I don't answer, they leave no voice mail. This means that THEY WILL NEVER GET TO SPEAK TO ME. I hate organizations like this. IF they would leave me a voice mail, I just might call them back.
Never leaves message. Calls on weekends too!
They won't be calling me anymore from that number. I added it to my selective call block list which is a service from my local phone company.
These rude, ill-bred louts call every day during evening hours and early on weekends. I can only suppose they've all been raised in barns by farm animals. They don't identify themselves first but actually have the audacity to begin the call by saying "Nina?" as if we're close personal friends. These people need to learn proper phone ettiquette. Here's a clue -- the caller ALWAYS identifies himself or herself first! But they're just a bunch of redneck, yahoo Christians. no surprises there. Of course, now we're all supposed to think Christianity is the one true way to salvation. Right. Learn some manners first, and maybe you'd get anyone besides drooling, knuckle-dragging, mouth-breathers to buy a word of your nonsense. Next time these people call, they're getting the airhorn blast.
Do not recognize these people.
just kidding,but this is annoying
we have receved calls from these same people,they call and say nothing,the phone block we put on our phone is not supposed to allow number blocked calls to come in,the last number was 202-552-1999
i dont want to alarm you but this is a common practice for many security agencies to use these other washington dc numbers for thier own purposes,usually they are in the same building.we recieved our calls late in the evening about 9;15 pm eastern standard time,the american center for law and justice is a christian organization paired with the ministry of Dr james Dobson from the long time radio show Focus On The Family.I operate a small generator bussiness,believe it or not people with exceptional technical skills are often closely monitored.
they said that they want to stop our tax money going to stop manadtory abortions in china
They leave no message,will call back and see if I can be removed from calling list.
sharon1217 Oct 23rd, 2007
Asked for a lady who used to sit with my mother. Asked to take a message was told no.
I picked up the phone, just silence,for a minute.
Then they hang up.
I am on the Do Not Call List.
Maybe when we pick up the phone, they put us on the petition?
This is harassment.
This number calls me constantly. No one is ever on the other end. I finally called the number back and used option #1 to remove our number from their list. We will see what happens.
They are Concerned Women something.Before they could go any further,I told them I wasn't interested & told them to take this #*&%$# number off their list.
CALLED @ 2:43PM ON 9/22, PICKED-UP, NO ANSWER ON OTHER SIDE.
It is Concerned Woman for America. Just call back & press 1 to be removed from their call lists.
The DNC does NOT pertain to 'non-profit' organizations people!!
They call at least once a day. I usually don't answer, but thought I'd try to get rid of them. No one there.
TWICE A DAY THEY CALL. IDO NOT PICK IT UP
They are calling once a day for over a week now. No one there when I answer.
This number call me every morning before 9am and just hangs up! I'm reporting it to my state Attorney General. The DNC list only prevents solicitation calls from businesses. I work nights and don't appreciate my sleep being interrupted just as I get into REM and then can't get back to sleep!
If you call the number, you can follow the automated recordings, and be removed from their calling list within 3 days it says... just did it so I don't know if it works or not
Phone rang, waited to screen calls, no message left. So, I dialed *69 and found that the last number to call me was 202-552-1966. I have had some contact with ACLJ, and from the messages here I guess its them. I will be writing them to withdraw my name and support.
I've gotten 2 calls so far from them, no messages left. CWFA appears on the caller id an no info when doing a reverse number lookup.
Called twice in as many days, but left no messages
They asked for someone by a first inital (that did not correspond to anyone who lives at my number) and my last name. When I told them there was no one by that name, they hung up.
CWFA call at 8:49 CST; no message. In the past we've received similar calls that are an attempt to log your acknowledgement. Once your number is verified they in turn use your number to make long distance calls.
This is ridiculous......every freakin' day I get several calls and no one there. I just don't answer anymore when I see the ACLJ on the phone. This needs to stop! They keep waken my baby when she is sleeping. >:(
multiple calls over many days. Always listed a CWFA on caller id
They have been calling at least once a day for the last two weeks; sometimes twice a day.
When I answer the phone, they never respond.
Quit wasting my time you morons.
annoying , they keep calling week after week
called 8 times in a week. caller ID displays ACLJ.
called tonight, answered phone, hello, no response for 15 seconds then click, if your here and you've got time, check this out, www.showthelaw.com spread the word, thanks. jimmy.
To whom it may concern:
They called at 12:47pm on 30-Jul-2007. No message other than a couple hello's. Everything was picked up by caller ID #202.552.1966 CWFA
they have called twice in the past 3 days, would not leave a message and today would not answer
Who is CFWA?
They called and I didn't pick up. I have been receiving lots of calls wanting my opinion.
Raleigh Bill Jul 19th, 2007
Wife answered phone and they asked for Mrs. M***R, she told them they had the wrong number and hung up. We're on the National Do Not Call List but they still call.
) Hang up call, no message left on machine. Well, if they're the Concerned Women for America it sure don't sound like they're too concerned. So what are they concerned about then? lol
called about 6 times in july its only the 15th.i just dont pick up anymore
its cwfa on display on caller ID
They called and asked for mary, when I said it was a wrong # they hung up. How did they get my # and who are they?
i cant'understand they call
me 3 or 4 times a day and nobody on the other line....
CWFA. Driving me crazy calling at least 2-3 times a day for the past 2 weeks!!!
They don't give up. Same as all the others. Wondering if there is a correlation between the ACLJ and American Center for Law & Justice possibly reving up their political calls. Looks like the CWFA (concerned women for America) calls were possibly from John McCains office? http://samhensel.wordpress.com/2007/01/18/mccain-endorsed-by-iowa-cwfm-founder/
i don't know how many times these people have called me, they don,t have the backbone to let you know who they are. something needs to be done. i hope when a new republican president gets into office he will do something about this kind of propaganda.
Caller ID showed "OUT OF AREA" and the number 202-552-1966
. If businesses don't have the courage to show who they are then they should NOT be allowed the priviledge of having telephones.
They call and when I pick up the phone to answer they don't respond and hang up after about a minute.
Jerks! same prob everyone else said
They call and just hang up. Apperantly they are a non-profit org. so the No call list doesn't apply to them.
they called at 11:30 pm when picked up no one was there
received 4 calls a day from this number in the last week. Very annoying. Concerned women for america
They call everyday and no one is there or they don't leave a message. Sometimes it is twice a day. Caller Id always reads CWFA and I am on the do not call list.
Same old story...calls multiple times, no message on machine. If you answer, no one say anything but you can hear voices in background
They call alot. I don't answer and they hang up. Only CWFA listed on caller ID.
This is Ultra Conservative Right Wing Group.They're non-profit so National Do Not Call List doesn't apply to them but they have to stop calling if you notify them to stop. Here is main phone #:202-488-7000
and FAX: 202-488-0806
. I sent fax because "Transmission Verfication Report" proves I notified them to stop calling.
I'm getting multiple calls from this number daily!! Why can't these people be included in the Do Not Call program? I'm sick of these people calling, not to mention that looking into the Google sites referencing CWFA, I don't agree with their hateful organization.
This is just plain outright phone harassment from "Concerned Women For America".
Why do they get away with this crap? I just sick of their CONSTANT calling.
Anyone who gives this this type of organization is a fool. And just contributing to their unethical business practices.
Recieved call 6:30 pm Feb 9> 4 or 5 rings > pick-up> dial tone.
Recieved call 6:30 pm Feb.10> I was not home to answer.
Both calls ID'd as CWFA
Concerned Women For America (CWFA) is a non-profit, thus not bound by the national DNC.
They won't leave you a message, they will leave you alone if you pick up the phone and talk to them for a couple of seconds.
called hung up before answer machine came on.And called 8:30 in the morning.
On the national do not call list. Called twice within last week. Will not leave a message.
They call me all the time, but never leave a message and the one time I picked up the phone, they hung up. Guess it serves me right for signing up for a free bumper sticker...
They call quite a few times here. They do not leave any messages.
Their number showed up on my caller ID, but I didn't answer the phone.
They call but leave no msg. Shows on caller id as Washington D.C.
Called at 5:14 p.m. on 1/12/07. No one responded when I answered the phone. Display says CWFA 202-552-1966. I'm on the national do-not-call list, so they shouldn't be calling.
someone from 202-552-1972
called and did not answer my "Hello". this has happened numerous times. I am reporting the number to the DO NOT CALL registry as my numer is on the Do-Not-Call listing!
the national do not call list does not prohibit no profit groups from soliciting. They can call, and unfortunately they have been, considering i get 3-4 calls A DAY from this number.
It was a call from ACLJ at this number. I googled it and got the American Center for law and justice. I assume they are also wanting us to sign a petition.
I looked them up and e-mailed their national director to tell them to stop calling me. She forwarded it to the person who is in charge of my local chapter. They still called at least 20 times after that. They called from 3 different numbers. This 202 number has a recording leaving an option to get off of their list but you have to listen to their "learn more about us" recording first.
I'm on the National Do Not Call List, so I shouldn't be getting these calls. I'd already blocked their other number - they were calling 2 or 3 times a day.
We have been getting these for over a month and no one is on the line when we answer. It is driving me nuts. I did some research: The web site, I believe, is www.cwfa.org. I left a message at the "contact us" portion and told them to discontinue calling us immediately. I'll probably keep doing this until the calls stop or they acknowledge my e-mail.
CWFA on display- Stands for Concerned Women for America (founder Beverly LaHaye)
The caller asks you to hold to listen to a pre-recorded message from Beverly LaHaye. The message is regarding anti-abortion issues. After the message it asked me to hold to be added to a petition; at that point I hung up.
Keep getting calls from this number. Whoever is calling doesn't leave a message. We are on a "no call" list. I do not answer cals unless caller id identifies who is calling.
Google says this is Concerned Women for America - right-wing BS group; as a Democrat, I'm in hell with calls from these people, no msgs., just repeat calls, showing up as CWFA; I'm on DNC list - what good is that?
This caller has called my house 3 times in as many days, and today is sunday, at 3:44. If you call them back, you get a recorded message that asks if you would like more info, if you dont chose the number one it just hangs up.
