I received two calls from this number this morning within an hour. I have received several calls from them in the past...it seems they call weekly now ever since I put my number on the National Do Not Call List. Usually they call regarding the Veteran's Association. The first time they contacted me, I agreed to donate. But when I received a letter in the mail from them with an envelope to send my donations in, I got real suspicious. So I looked into it. It is all a scam. Today when they called, however, they were calling as the Breast Cancer Society asking for donations for the cause. http://www.breastcancersociety.org/
THREE minutes after I received the last call from 1-866-378-9487, I received a call from 248-996-1902: caller ID said "Southfield MI". Thinking it was a coincidence and someone I knew, I picked up said hello a few times and didnt hear anything so waited, and then I heard the charity telemarketer click over and said hello. I hung up on her. Now that I have looked up information on both "charities" I cannot wait until they call back so that I can give them a piece of my mind.
I am thinking about calling them back...But I heard they do not pick up.
I have start to file complaints for charity fraud at: www.ftc.gov, www.bbb.org, and www.give.org Everyone please do the same so that this mess can be stopped!
