Based upon other info reported, I think my call from this number was a follow-up from a call a few minutes earlier from the Kids Wish Network. I didn't agree to a donation but agreed to let them mail material. I think they made the call to confirm a donation before they saw I only agreed to getting mailed material. They hung up on me when I answered the phone. The call for the donation was from 248-581-7971

I'm calling from the Kid's Wish Network, how are you today. "I'm sorry, I don't except calls like this at my home." Click. Hung up on me. No chance, Ben, for me to ask them to place me on the do-not-call list. Rude and intrusive.

They've been calling several times per week and never leave a message. I finally answered to ask if they would please add me to their do-not-call-again list and she promptly hung up. They are soliciting for "Kids Wish Network" but they act exactly like it's a scan. Warning...

some telemarketing scam. tried to get me to confirm something, very difficult to understand with background noise. told them to send in mail. when you try to call the number back you get recordered message of all circuits are busy.

called, caller ID identified 248-581-7971. They said nothing, so I hung up. I won't answer again. Sure hope this doesn't start the latest round of "mystery annoyance phonecalls."

They were trying to confirm a donation to Kid's Inc (or Kid's something) made by a Directele call 248-581-7971) a few minutes earlier.

Asking for donations to Kid's Inc or Kid's something. Apparently that's an organization for the last wishes for dying kids. Agent claimed ~69% went to the charitable uses. I only agreed to accept their mailing, consider it, and donate if it looked ok. I got a call back from 877-279-7591 (Caller ID showed TOLL FREE) asking me to confirm a $10 donation and I said that's not what I had said previously.
