The Breast Cancer Prevention Foundation is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization. They are soliciting donations.

http://breastcancerpreventionfund.org/

May be a good cause thought I have not vetted them as of yet. However, they are calling numbers logged with the “DO NOT CALL” registry in violation of the “Do-Not-Call Improvement Act of 2007”, which became law in February 2008. http://www.ftc.gov/opa/2008/04/dncfyi.shtm; https://www.donotcall.gov/

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.
Possibly cybercops/spooks.

Here is their 'contact' web page:

http://www.breastcancerpreventionfund.org/contactus.htm

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

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.

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! ;=}

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!!!

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.

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.
