I have worked for this company and I will clear things up for some of you. We make calls for the California Organization of Police and Sheriffs and other charity organizations. As for us not leaving messages, we are not allowed to because the system makes the calls for us, so there is nobody that you can call back. Lastly, we don't answer right away because it takes a second for the computer to understand that you have picked up the phone.

I've received several calls from this number over the last several months. They leave no message. I am on the "Do Not Call" list.

I used to work for this company, the reason you all keep getting "no answer" is because we all use headsets with mute boxes for our mics, we get a beep in the head-set and that is our cue to say hello. because of how many #'s are being dialed at any given point in time it may take a second or two after you pick up the phone before it connects to the actual caller with the headset. be patient! all you have to do is politely request that you be taken off of the cacop call list, DON'T keep mindlessly stating that you are on the federal do not call list, we have a written rebutal for that statement. just because you state you are on a do not call list does not mean you are requesting to be taken off of a call list. follow me? the actual written response is something like "the federal do not call list does not apply to fundraising done by qualified non profit organizations, as you know these programs need support from the public and are not the calls the law-makers intended to stop" hope this helps you all in the future.

Received a call 06/11/2007, some telemarketing recording was left on my machine. Filed complaint with the FCC. ****FILING COMPLAINTS THROUGH THE DO NOT CALL LIST WILL NOT GET YOU ANY WHERE. THEY DO NOT HAVE THE POWER TO FINE OR PROSECUTE PEOPLE, THE FCC DOES AND WILL DO IT. THEY HANDLE ANYTHING THAT DEALS WITH PHONES OR COMMUNICATIONS. I have attached the website to this message. http://www.fcc.gov/cgb/complaints.html

they have been calling for weeks, several times a day as everyone else has stated, all hours. We don't pick up, checking caller-id, my message machine starts and they hang up. My son finially answered, but there was no voice on the other end.
It is more than annoying.
I refuse to pay the phone company more money to block these calls.

I leave my phone unplugged and my message machine on mute. If a caller on my ID says "unavailable" then so am I. But after reapeated calls fom CACOPM I wondered who this was. After viewing this web sight I've decided that all of us should always pick up the phone, with out answering, and wait 30 seconds. At least this way I hope they get billed for the phone call.

who/whatever CACOPM is, it/they/he/she calls me on a daily basis, sometimes 4 or more times per day. i know this, not b/c i sit around all day screening my calls, but b/c the info is stored in my caller id. a call came in over the weekend (v. early in the am), and i answered the phone, ready to oh-so-politely request that CACOPM never ever call my number again, but alas, no one was on the other end of the line. NICE!! kind of hard to direct the caller to go f*** it/them/him/herself when, in fact, no one is there. CACOPM is not the only entity/person that seems to call with this sort of frequency. another is Medallion. acording to what i could find thru sites like this on the internet, Medallion is some sort of call center for Special Olympics (meaning the callers are soliciting for money for the Special Olympics), claims to be a non-profit organization and, as such, claims to be exempt from the DNC list. (that said, it apparently maintains that, to the extent you actually speak to a live person, you can ask to be placed on its own DNC list). based on the message from "pmm" from 6/16/07, am thinking that CACOPM is a similar sort of entity.

This company calls a minimum of 5 times a day. They start calling at 8:00 AM on both Saturday & Sunday. My phone is registered with the DNC list. A lot of good that did!!!!!! It drives me mad.

I believe this is the "for profit", i.e., cannot deduct your contribution, for California Organization of Police and Sheriffs. The web site is very suspect. If you donate, then you also start receiving calls from the California State Firefighters Assocation. It all sounds legitimate, but it is a phone bank soliciting donations.

All of a sudden I'm getting several calls a day from this number. I'm so sick of people who call and hang up. I'm just going to continue to answer and hang up when I'm home to see the number.

I have caller ID. These people call all of the time, in the early AM all the way up until the late PM. They don't leave a message. I have picked up before, and they don't say anything immediately. I have asked them to stop calling me, but they still do. I am totally frustrated with these people. I am also on the national don't call list. What about "don't call me!" don't they understand!

I get at least six calls a day from this number. If I pick up the phone and hang up, they call right back. Finally when I said hello, the person on the other end asked form someone named Abby.

i answered and the caller was super rude when i asked the name...i think it is a police organization trying to raise funds..they sent you a decal for your car window and then call to get you to pledge money to them...complete jerks.

I've gotten several calls, no message, nor did I pick up. What kind of charity is it pmm?

I use called ID to avoid solicitations and surveys. They keep calling (day and night) and don't leave a message. I just wish they would give up after not reaching me after over 30 times. Who are they?

I finally got someone to talk on the other end. This is a charity organization soliciting for money. I've told them to stop calling me.

They keep calling and won't leave a message. I have no idea who they are. If I pick up the phone, there is no immediate response. I am on the national don't call list.
