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

They called me, too, said it was on behalf of firefighters. Here is a report which shows how little of what they raise actually makes it to the charity. Unacceptable.
This was a call supposedly from the Maine State Federation of Firefighters. They have called here 4 times since 2/17. The other number they called from was 207-480-3287. The caller asked for me by my first name. He asked me how I was, I said fine and then hung up as I didn't have time for his likely plea for money. Although the number supposedly is located in Portland ME, the gentleman calling was obviously not from Maine and I could hear other voices in the background so this appeared to be call center of some sort. I found out that the call likely came from Outreach Calling, a professional fund raiser hired by the Federation. If I were to donate it would be directly as one report found online shows Outreach Calling keeping 90% of any money donated.
