Everyone please go here and file a complaint. This is the only way to shut these morons down and stop the calls:
I have contacted the phone company for this number and asked them to investigate this. They call me at least once a week.
Called wanting donations for bullet-proof vests for police.
- Courtesy 101
Said he was the Deputy Sheriff...refused to leave a message when told I wasn't there.
I got a call from 269-537-2015
,asked to speak to me,& then hung up.Who is this,or what is it.
I read that 269-537-2015 is from Niles, MI. Is the Niles Police Dept. aware of these annoying phone calls? If not, perhaps we should contact Police Chief Richard Huff at his e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org .
The Niles, Michigan City Hall address and main telephone number:
508 E. Main Street P.O. Box 487 Niles, MI 49120 269-683-4700
When I answered the phone, someone hung up. Is that someone just trying to verify that the tel. # is good, or to confirm someone is home? Either way, it's annoying.
This number called my home phone tonight and asked for me by name. I said yes, who is this? and they hung up. I thought that was odd (and rude), so I called the # back, and it rang and rang, then said "memory full." I registered today for Do Not Call, but it said you can't file a complaint for 31 days.
Shiesters All!!! Beware of calls form all solictors. new e-crap-no rules-no morals.
Called April 5th, 2007 @ 7:00PM CST. I picked up after 1 ring, and instant disconnect. I called them back, and it rang about 10 times, then I got a recording saying 'Memory Full'. About an hour before that, I got a call from an Unknown Name, Unknown Number, collecting for 'Faternal Order of Police', under my previous/old last name, which I haven't used in over 5 years. After I told the woman that the person didn't live here anymore, she then asked if she could have a few minutes of my time. I asked her if this was for a donation, and she said 'Yes', I told her No Thanks and hung up. I only mention the previous call, because other people are reporting them under the same #, and it is probably the same company.
They call once or twice a day. CID says "FNC HM LOANS". I think they're trying to call my octogenarian Dad. They ask for him but when they hear the voice of a younger person they hang up. Last time I just said "hello" and they laughed and hung up.
Calls at about 7:30 p.m. I sez 'Hello?', he sez nothing, I suggest that he perform an anatomically impossible feat on himself, he laughs and hangs up. I'm on all the 'Do Not Call' lists...fat lot of good that does. And calling QWEST is a waste of time. Nuts.

269-537-2015 caller ID says courtsey101 no message ever left.when i try to call it back no answer.surprise!I am on a do not call list, so much for that
These CLOWNS called at 8:40 p.m. Left no message.
Several calls over last couple weeks from this number. Never left message and I never answered until tonight. Woman named Nicole claiming to be from a Children's cancer assoc. Said I donated last year and argued with me when I said I did not. I ended up hanging up on her.
Someone report this to the fbi
CCI called. Said he was a deputy sheriff or soemthing. Asked if with Ohio..vague. Tried to send me an envelope with $25, 50, 100 donation.Wants me to commit. I said send but not agreeing to anything. Appears fishy.
Called twice in one day without leaving a message. Don't recognize area code.
this company told me they got my # from american business info. dont call them it could get worse. quest told me they took care of the problem (what a joke) i think they got my # from quest
I've had it - 6-12 calls a day for months - all times of the day and night; 5 calls within 35 minutes two nights in a row.
Let's give them a little taste of their own medicine.
Courtesy Call Inc.
1835 E. Charleston Blvd. Suite #4
Las Vegas, NV 89104
When I answered the caller said "Wrong number sir" in a fairly deep voice. From this brief dialogue I got the impression of a mid-western accent. I tried to call the number back but no one answered. Watch your credit cards and bank accounts people, something is going on since the calls are so frequent and only recently started. I've been a Private Investigator too long to believe this is just a coincidence.
Red Steiner Mar 23rd, 2007
My number is on the no call list.
Got my first call from this number tonight. After looking here I see that I may be in for a long line of these telemarketing calls.. >:o(
I didn't answer, and no message was left.
After reading all these notes here I filed a complaint with the Do Not Call registry.
My wife answered the phone, the man on the other end asked for me, by name, My wife asked him who was calling, and he replied, Mark, she then handed the phone to me and by the time I was able to greet him he had hung up
Caller ID of "Courtesy 101". When I answer the line is dead, when I don't they have yet to leave a message. Truly annoying.
Called saying they were from the "Children's Cancer and Leukemia Fund" and gave me a bogus 800# to verify their identity.
getting almost everyday annoying. I get so many telemaketers anyways that i have stopped picking up! if it is impoortant i expect a voice message. the do not call registry is useless
I get a call from them at least once a day. It was showing up as CCI. Now they are shown as Courtesy 101 on my called ID. I never answer hoping it will eventually stop.
Said he was Will with Deputy Sheriff and wouldn't leave a message for the person he asked for.
Called my house asking for Daniel.
I didn't pickup because I didn't recognize the caller. Apparently this call orignates from MI. He better not call here again - he'll get the whistle in the ear.

I would recommend everyone being harrassed by this to report it to the Better Business Bureau (BBB). You can remain anonymous to Courtesy 101, but still receive an e-mail from the BBB with resolution. You can report it at: http://www.give.org/inquire/index.asp
Received a call from Courtesy 101, and actually had a real person on the other end. He said he was with Children's Cancer Research, and thanked me for my contribution last year. I asked him when I contributed, and when he said I contributed in April last year, I asked him how could I have contributed when I was deployed to Iraq in April, and if I did can I have the number of his long distance carrier because they must be getting the best rates to make international calls to a war zone. He then said maybe it was a different month, and I told him if he knew I contributed last year, then he must have some kind of documentation that would have a date and I would wait while he looked, and he hung up on me.
CALLED AND LEFT NO MESSAGE UNKNOWN NUMBER TO US SO WE DID NOT ANSWER
Automatically called numerous times. No one answered and would not answer when called back.
Russell Brown Mar 05th, 2007
Called at 6:30 PM, asked for my husband. After telling them he was not home and asking if they would like to leave a message, they rudely stated NO and hung up.
What a scam.
I went ahead and said "yes" when they called, just to receive whatever they were to send. I got an invoice from United States Deputy Sheriffs' Assoc. When I follow through on all the "leads", WA State Secy of State says 31% of what USDSA receives goes to projects. When clicking through links, 13% of what Courtesy Call Inc. receives goes to the designated agencies.
called around 8:30 pm. They asked for my mom I said she wasnt there, then i asked who was calling and they hung up. I tried to call back to yell at them because he was really rude but nobody answered. They need to get real jobs!!!!!
They called and hung up after three rings after I answered
This number calls daily but I do not answer it.ON the called ID it reads courtesy 101.
Answered the call, no one said anything. Tried to call back number was busy. Tried another day, and no one would pick up
These guys call all the time. Start out by thanking you for previous donations. Then won't shut up till they go through $50, $25, $10 speeches. They can get downright nasty if you try and say no and cut em off before they finish. They just won't shut up or stop talking. They have numerious fronts agent orange veterans, disabled veterans, fire fighters, dare, etc ...
They did not respond, heavy breathing only! I hung UP.
My husband is very ill. Please stop calling!!
This numbers calls our house multiple times daily. I just let my 2 year old answer the phone when they call.
ID said Unknown Name. Person said they were from the US Association of Sheriffs. I informed him we are on the do not call list & hung up
Hung up before I picked up. 2nd call from this number in several days; they always hang up.
They call serveral time a week-sometimes twice a day. I reported the number to donotcall.gov
Recommend everyone being annoyed by these people make an entry on the national Do Not Call List. If you are registered they are violating the Law.
The have called twice tonight. Each time we have asked them not to call again. This is the third week in a row they have called multiple times. Do not take their calls they are fraud - not anywhere near my area code!
No message they hang up and do not leave one.
This number is CONSTANTLY coming up on our caller ID. They begin calling as early at 6:30PST and don't stop until well after 8pm. I wish they would stop!!!
They called but I was not at home.
I got called from this number everyday, I blocked it on my SunRocket phone.
I get calls from this # and others, I finally called my phone Company Qwest and they said that after each time a number calls, push *57 this cost me a 1$ each time and it is stored as an annoyance call on their computer, after the 3rd time I do this I call 1-800-582-0655
and they are suppose to send this company a letter to not call my number again? I had 2 calls already today One hung up the other was for cancer research donations or something. has anyone tried this? if not see if your phone company offers something like this? for over 2 yrs I have been getting calls from Courtesy but last 4 dig were 2014. they never stopped when I have asked them too!! I would like to know if this will work?
These people call every other day or so and never leave a message. So far, they have not spoken to anyone when the call is answered and often hang up immediately when hearing a male voice.
Calls ALL the time and I never answer - how do you get it to stop???? They call at all hours and twice on Sunday 2/18! Am getting really annoyed with the 6-12 calls a week
Caller ID: COURTESY 101
Has call several times, and never leaves a message. Calls even in Sunday.
I got a call from this number, showed up as Courtesy 101 on caller ID. The guy stated he was with the Amercian Childers Cancer something or other. He stumbled just getting out the name of his so called charity. These scumbags have called several times each with a different charity. Watch out.
Called 8:41 PM Number 269-537-2015 Courtesy 101
Courtesy is a joke to these assholes!
Report them to the do not call registry!
They called tonight, son answered phone and they asked if he was Rachel (me) and he said no, im her son. Then they hung up on him. Who exactly owns this line?
These jerks call and hang up if we answer. We put the phone on silent and let them wait.
Called 2/13/07 7:38 pm
called 2/14/07 4:54 pm
called 2/15/07 4:45 pm
did not leave a message, just keeps showing up on the caller ID
Been calling a lot lately. The answering machine makes them hang up. When my six year old answered, they asked for me by name but he told them I was on the cell phone and they said they'd call back. (I'll abe waiting with baited breath for that one)
left very rude message in a raspy voice
They call about 10 times/week. Claim to be sheriff charity of some sort. Numerous requests to have number removed from their list.

CCI 101 on caller ID,
# was 269-537-2015
I didn't answer - they didn't leave a message.
Guy calls asks for my mother and then hangs up when I ask who he is calling with!
CALLS -NO ONE ON LINE
NO ANSWER WHEN I CALL BACK
I get a call from this number (269) 537-2015 almost daily. No one ever responds when I say, 'Hello'. I've tried calling the number back, but no one answers.
They asked for my husband. I said "may I ask who is calling?" They said "no you may not," and they hung up.
Caller was very rude when I said I donate locally. I hung up on him.
No message. Low-lifes...
He asked for my husband, I asked who was calling, said it was (Can't recall). I asked what it was regarding, he said, the call is for your husband (name) is he there or should we call back later, I said, don't call at all and hung up.
Caller never replies when we say hello.
This number calls one to four times a day. They call as early as 6:30 AM and as late as 10:50 PM. These assholes claim they're looking for donations and just pester you. It's gotten to the point where I pull the phone cable out of the wall when I'm home so I don't get any calls from them and when I leave for work I plug it back it.
Calls have been coming in several times a day. Today we got calls asking for my parents (by name). Creepy. The caller was rude to my teenage daughter when she said they were both deceased. In fact, they've never lived here so I have no idea how their names were associated with my phone number.
J. Scott Miller Feb 06th, 2007
They called the other day but I didn't answer. but they called again tonight at 8:20 pt. I pick up and then hung right up.

Deputy Sherriff's Association. What a Scam! I hung up on them immediately when he tried to thank me for donating before. I never give donations over the phone.
Called two nights in a row at the same time; didn't leave a message, then the next night I picked up and got a dead line. Couldn't call back. Swine!

Keep getting calls from this number. No one answers when I do. I can't call back, no answer there.
My phone says "unknown" when they call, so I don't know where the call is coming from.
MAKE IT ALL STOP!
Pam MILLER Jan 28th, 2007
This was the Deputy Sherrif's Association. They were very rude, I said we were not going to donate and they hung up on me.
Called representing the Washington JAYCEES club asking for a donation. He said his name but I did not write it down. When I asked why the call was from the 269 area code he triped up got tounge tied and hungup.
Louis Williams Jan 25th, 2007
If you call their other number 537-2014, they say they will put you on a do not call list. You enter your number on that list and supposedly that cures it. They are casing for numbers to see who answers, so this may make it worse, I don't know. But if you answered and they know you're a live one, it can't hurt.
