I called the number and they said it is the Breast Cancer Prevention Fund. I want them to stop calling me. Now.
BCBF. Several calls per day then nothing for a few days and starts again. No one there if I pick up.

Have received numerous calls from this number in the past two weeks. The caller ID says "BCBF". When I answer, no one is there and I hear a slight clicking noise, then nothing. Gotta be some kind of a scam.
I work for BCPF and we are told not to leave messages on answering machines, as it is illegal.????? Also, we are instructed to advise potential donors that non profit agencies, such as ours, are exempt from the National Do Not Call Registry. We gladly add people to our Do not call list, when asked. To stop calls from BCPF, answer the phone and tell us to add you to our "do not call" list. THIS WILL STOP THE CALLS. We are instructed to "ONLY" talk to past donors, personally, when calling past donors for donations. If you do not want calls from BCPF tell them DIRECTLY, by asking to be added to the DO NOT CALL LIST FOR BCPF.

My story seems to be the same as umpteen others listed here. Several calls a week...sometimes, a day...and no one seems to to be there. Puzzling at first, enraging of late.
Jan. 2, 2010 @ 6:46 P.M. Phone rings (Had been on the internet/political).
Caller ID shows 210-892-0490 BCBF,SSD=200907
I answered, giving my first name, and heard nothing in response.

Here is their 'contact' web page:
Towards the bottom of this page, you can comment and they will receive it. I sent a complaint telling them never to call my number again, and that they are listed on many complaint forums because of their annoying phone solicitation practices, LOL
They've called before, during the day when I am out of the house. Always leave no message. Today was the same.
They call at all ours and days -even Sundays- They hang up when I answer. I am beyond annoyed.
thank goodness for caller-id. If I don't recognize the name or number, I don't answer. Period. If someone I know doesn't get past my screening, all they have to do is leave a message and I will call back ... on my nickle.
calls but leaves no message
I don't contribute to ANYONE who calls me on the phone!
SOD OFF, WANKERS!!
They asked for me and when the person at the house stated I was at work they said thank you and hung up.
They hung up as soon as I answered the phone
UNknown- No Response when I answered call
I am registered with the NATIONAL NO CALL LIST!! How the hell do these people get away with calling me?
Could barely hear the caller, something about cancer donations. I said I was the maid and would take a message,they hung up, LOL
Called everyday for awahile then no calls for some time. Then got another today.
call everyday numerous times, hangs up everytime!
Will they ever stop calling. I won't ever answer!!!!! I don't contribute to any phone calling charity.
I also have experienced the same, but wanted to clarify a comment from a previous poster regarding DNC registry ... you do NOT need to register every year. Of course it doesn't hurt anything, but you only have to re-register if you number changes or if your number is disconnected for a period of time. Again, it doesn't cause a problem to do it, but I don't want folks to think you have to mark your calendars to re-register. I have had solicitors tell me this when I told them I am on the DNC and logging their number and date and time of call to report them and THEY told me that I probably had my DNC expire .. bull puppies! I've been at the same address for over 12 years and validated with DNC I was still on the list. I just wanted to let ya'll know that although there is no way to avoid the auto-dialers, number sellers and scum balls, that you don't have to add the DNC to something you have to remember to do every year like your taxes! ;=}
they call ,, I didnot answer and they put a noise on my machine and then just let the receiver stay off the hook... I stopped that ... I just now blocked their phone number....
Dont pester me Nov 07th, 2009
No message left. Hang up.
This is a verified SCAM. I offered to take up a collection so maybe someday their parents could get married!! Just a bunch of bas---ds..
no response when answered
BCBF calls me at least once a day Mon-Sat. Wonderful thing about caller-id is I can chose not to answer or press talk on the telephone receiver and set the phone down. My advice to folks is do not trust any unsolicited charity who calls. Scams abound out there. I suspect there are move scams and shams than trustworthy charities.

wants help with breast cancer.for cosmetics and mammogram.requests for $180 helping out 2 peoplethough i said i will help i am rethinking now.many have told me not to
I have received several calls from this number. Since I don't recognize the name, I assume it is a solicitor and do not answer. I'm getting tired of these calls. I have signed up on 2 do not call lists over the years, and still the calls keep coming. I was told by one of the pesty charity callers how the solicitations work. I was appalled. I supported and gave to one reputable charity for years. They passed my name to several others. This resulted in my getting calls from charities I had never done business with 3-4 times a day. I was told that many of the charities are grouped together. Therefore, if you do business with one, you are on the calling lists for all those in that group. This is how they get around the Do Not Call regulations. I have asked the ones I never did business with to remove my name from their list. They claim they cannot. I simply do not answer my phone to any of them anymore. I agree with other comments that the hang-ups and never leaving a message is quite annoying and rude. This has made me a not so charitable person anymore to any organization.
I AM TIRED OF GETTING THESE CALLS 2 OR 3 TIMES A WEEK.. I AM ON THE NATIONAL DONT CALL LIST BUT DONT SEEM TO BE DOING ANY GOOD....I JUST DONT ANSWER THEM...
Every day I'm receiving calls from this number. Only occasionally will someone speak - I've asked to be removed from "the list" to no avail. Usually its only dead air or if the machine gets it no message. I don't get it - I know the causes I support and certainly don't respond to random calls. I've never even heard of the organization - don't even know if they are legit. Heres is a thought, stop calling all of us who don't want to hear from you - use the $$$ you pay the telemarketers into the cause. Problem solved, I'm not called and your cause makes money.
If you are going to bother to call, why doesn't the caller speak? This is getting very old - 2x's daily. Plz take me off the list - I support Susan G. Komen anyways. Or give me your number and I'll gladly keep calling you - bet you won't care for that.
We have received 6 calls in the last 5 days from the 210 BCBF number.
I have been receiving calls from this # for the last 2 days. They need to stop
called and hung up. A good reply would be, "I have breast cancer, how do I get this money from you?"
I'm on the Federal DNC list. Even if BCBF is a charitable org or non-prof, do not call me.... EVER!
I too am on every do not call list! Therefore stop calling!! I get at least 2 calls a day from this number.
They have been calling just about everyday now for a few weeks. I know I have been called by them before and told them to take my name off their list. They may take your name off at that time, but somehow they get your name back on the list. Face it, we have no privacy anymore, anytime we furnish our phone number you can bet it will generate solicitations of some sort. And I'm sure most of you have donated to one charity and then every other charity sends a request for a donation to their cause. Sadly, there's just too many causes.
Also in Austin Sep 08th, 2009
Have recd numerous calls and no one there when I answer. Today I did get the call and spoke with an individual who was soliciting money for mamograms for women. When I responded that as a survivor myself, I was offended by phone call solicitation when I dont know who is really calling. The individual on the phone decided to question and debate my response, rudely I might add. I told her to take me off the call list!!!
They have called twice now and no one responded when I answered the phone.
Call came right at 6 pm just in time to disturb dinner. Typical ploy of TM's

DON'T CALL HERE ANY MORE. WE'RE ON EVERY DO NOT CALL LIST THERE IS. IF I WANT TO DONATE TO YOU, I'LL VONYACT YOU!!! CALL HERE & YOU ARE NEVER GETTING OUR DONATION!!!!!
Called a few times this week...no voice when I picked up....???
We have received several calls from this same number. Called ID shows this number with BCBF as the caller name. The white pages online shows that it is a number out of San Antonio. For a fee to "white pages" I can get additional info... not going to happen. I also have answered and no response. One call, recently said that they were with the Breast Cancer Prevention Fund - that was the last call on 8/28. They ended call quickly when I mentioned out of work. Seems suspicious to me, although I have no first hand information.
Same number as referenced above called several times today. No message
These people have called several times. I pick up and say hello, and there is no answer in return.
There was a site that asks that they be reported to the Federal Trade Commission when you receive a call from them.
Asked for my name. Would not answer my questions. As soon as I told her that I looked up Breast Cancer Prevention Fund and there was a warning that it was a scam, she told me she had to go talk to her supervisor and hung up.
This is the Breast Cancer Prevention Fund - soliciting donations!
