They're still calling. I think they get paid per call.

Caller was rude and intrusive. Do not EVER call 360-944-0258 AGAIN. Caller asked for Greg as if a family friend and said this call was not to solicit but to thank. Just the other day a similar call with the same dnc.gov request given, but calls continue! Greg is ill with aggressive Cancer. We will take legal action if bothered again.

We do not wish to be called anymore. The caller asked specifically for Greg even though this same number was asked not to call our home again. We have an outgoing message that lets callers know we accept no solicitations of any kind. Greg has had a recurrence of a very aggressive form of Cancer. DO NOT CALL 360-944-0258 EVER AGAIN! Caller very rude, intrusive and hung up on me this morning when I asked for no more calls, and said we were just called the other day!We are registered at the dnc.gov site

They called repeatedly tonight, from 6:30 to 8:30 - no one there when I answered so I *69'd them. Same number each time - 253-581-6257 - which I then reverse lookup online and found this site. Can't seem to contact them, becoming frustrating and disruptive - contemplating legal action but unsure of what my rights are WRT phone solicitation. I am registered at the dnc.gov site.

Called at 7:00pm 2/28/2008 listened to what the guy had to say. he asked if I had changed the batteries in my smoke detector and asked if I liked oldies music. he said that there were free tickets to a concert for me. I proceeded to ask him how he got my number and that i was on the do not call list. He said that they go through the phone numbers in the state one by one and then said that he was not selling anything but wanted to know if I wanted to help firefighters. when i answered yes he then wanted a donation of $100.00. when I told him that I allready donate at my local fire dept. he got rude and said that the next time he asked for help I shouldn't wast his time by saying yes then the jerk just hung up on me. found out that "SRI" Is not even part of the wscff they ore a non profit that uses wscff's name and gives them very little money from what they collect. If this company shows up on your caller id don't aswer it. If you want to help Fire Fighters go to your local fire dept. and donate there.

Great. They just called me for the first time tonight, but I did not answer, did reverse look up to find company name, and found this website. Now I am worried they are going to keep calling. The number they used was 253-581-6257, WSCFF-SRI was name. The location I found was Lakewood, WA. They called at 8:10pm, and I have a telemarketing screen on my phone where you have to press 1 to verify that you are not a telemarketer. I will try filing a complaint with the FTC or Attorney General's office. Has anyone tried that yet? Thanks for the warning everyone.

The number that showed is 253-581-6257. I told him no one's home. They've been calling too but we ususally don't answer our phone.

Called when I was on the other line. Did I switch over? Hell no, I came here first, and as usual, I'm glad I did.

IDIOTS. (not you, the morons calling us...)

Recorded msg said "This is SRI, sorry we missed you. You can reach us at 253-581-6257" and hung up. I called back and N/A. Found out they were a solicitor. I am on the Do Not Call list.

This is indeed the Washington State Council of Firefighters (WSCFF / Sponsor Reps Incorporated, hence 'WSCFF SRI' on the caller ID).
They called and left a message on the machine for the first time, leaving a message for me similar to the one cj described.

Get a call a few times a month from these folks - each time they call out my husbands name "hello " - its really creepy.

Once again my evening was interupted by these people. What does it take to get off the list? I made my 3rd call to the office to complain again.

Just received another call from these people...was hung up on again. Called the Corp. office again. The woman I spoke to was very nice, but I don't know how many more times they may call before I lose my head with them.

Called my house asking for my husband---hung up on me in mid sentence when I said he wasn't availalbe. Tried to call back---no answer. Thank goodness for the internet...found Corp. number 877-581-4665)and reached someone live. Told her what happened and that if that was the way their reps were going to be we'd like to be removed from their list. Also, found out (via internet) most of what they collect does not in fact go to the fire fighters.
