This is a follow-up to my original comment. I have received a few calls from this group displaying numbers in the same block. Two other numbers that they have used are 207-591-2055 and 207-591-1065. I called them back after the last call to find out who they are. Apparently this is a telemarketing firm located in Westbrook Maine. They specialize in fund raising campaigns. In this particular case they were asking for donations for the local ambulance service so they could purchase equipment such as a powered lift stretcher. This would be an unusual method for the local volunteer ambulance service so I sent an email to the town manager to see if this was authorized as this service is supported by local taxes. So far no answer.

I did not pick up on this particular call but have received additional calls from this same block of numbers specifically 207-591-1065 and 207-591-1052.

I wasn't here to pick up the call so I called them back. When he realized that I was on the line he asked what city I was calling from. Whe he found out he started his pitch about raising funds for the local ambulance service in my town so they could buy equipment. Something about this seemed out of character for the Department so I sent an email to the town manager to see if this campaign was authorized and if so where the money came from to pay the telemarketer. As yet I have not received an answer.
