I think this is the second call I received from this number recently.
The guy actually had the name of a person but he had the wrong area code (He apparently dialed 630 instead of 847.)
When I told him he had dialed the wrong area code, he asked who I was (didn't answer quick enough for him I guess) then he asked if it was for a business (I said, "No.") then he asked if it was a residence he had called (I said, "Yes.") Then he asked, "Since I have you, do you want to donate to Special Olympics?"
"No thanks, I do that locally." Well, OK, so they are local... ;-)

The area code 224 is an overlay for the 847 area code.

Special Olympics Illinois would be my guess based on the Caller-ID others reported as "SOIL" and as reported by "hr" earlier.

It's strange that they would hang up when someone answers though - why would they turn down a chance to ask for money? The guy that called me didn't pass up that chance.

They keep calling, refuse to leave their number. When pressed they claimed their company name is "Medallion".

Last comment should read "Per melissadata[dot]com...."
(Apparently whocalled[dot]us filters-out web addresses from submitted comments.)

Call answered, caller not identified. Apparently looking for commercial operations only (vs residential). Per , call is originating out of Lake Forest (Lake County), Illinois.
