I received a call from this number at the end of May. In June I tried to phone the number to ask them to remove my number from their calling list. I got a recording saying that the number I dialed was "disconnected or no longer in service."

Calls daily. Nobody there when I answer it. Never leaves a message.
They have called every day for the past week - never leave a message - always early evening - VERY annoying.
Left no message.
Emailed their contact on the web site and asked to be taken off their list .
Them: Sir we are an agency doing work for non-profit companies.
Me: How do I stop you from calling me?
Them: Give me your phone number...
Me: Err how do I know you won't use it to call me more? .. what guarantees do I get?
Them: Can't help you unless I have a phone number
me: Sorry I will report your company to the IL attorney General.
We're on the do not call list - and this is the 3rd call in 2 days from this group - reported on national registry as well
"California" in Caller ID. First time 1/2/08, but 858-560-5113
(CallerID = "California") called on 12/20. Perhaps unrelated, perhaps not.
calls daily! No one answered
This fund calls every day of the week.
"California" appears on Caller ID; no message. They've called several times over the past couple days - and this is Veterans Day Weekend!
leaves no message, has called every day for 3 days.
This number is calling every day. We're on the "do not call" list. Perhaps they need a copy.
Three successive days I received calls from this number.
This company has called relentlessly. Started with one call every day or two, then every day, then 3 to 4 times per evening. Like maby telemarketers, their computers are programmed to ramp up the calls continuously until a person is forced to pick up the phone in an effort to get the calls stopped. When I finally answered and asked them to remove me from their call list, the telemarketer 3 times ignored my request and kept right on with his spiel. He did not remove me from their list, as the calls continued (3 more the very next evening), requiring me to call Telefund's management and demand that the calls stop. This company claims to specialize in fundraising for progressive, socially conscious, non-profit organizations but their aggressive tactics are those of the worst corporate telemarketers.
Am tired of getting these incessant calls.

This number calls two or three times each day, six days per week.
I received two calls yesterday. I've received calls from this number in the past. I don't answer, and no message has ever been left.
They called two days in a row. Nothing appears on caller ID except the number. No message left.
Sick to death of these calls. One most days, two some days, every day for almost a month. My air horn is almost out of air. I wouldn't give a dime to your fucking charity if it meant the electric chair! Go away and leave me alone!

Telefund Inc keeps calling and whenever the phone is answered, nobody is there. This is complete crap. Do they actually think that this will make me want to give them money?
Telefund calls us all the time. On 8/8, however, we got a weird message from one of their employees... near as we can figure, the computer dialed and connected us while he was talking to a friend on his cell phone. He kept saying that he had to whisper because he was at work, but he "got the copies you need, man," and asked when his friend would be home. He then said "maybe I'll just come burn your house down, man," and laughed and then started talking about copies again.
Called at 4:10 p.m. on 8/6/07. Didn't answer because I was on another call and I didn't recognize the number.
receiving calls daily for 2-3 weeks tried to answer- no one there after reading comments, left msg to remove my number from call list
Recvd this call 3 times today 8:54pm was the last one been ignoring these.
afully late to get this call I dont answer. Never will
caller id says california
"California" appears on Caller ID. Calls every day, no message.
My Talking Caller ID Phone is a blessing. :) As soon as I hear 323, I ignore; I don't even have to get up.
Have received calls once and sometimes twice a day for almost three weeks. No one there when I answered and I have better things to do than wait for them. Now I just pick up and hang up.
calls on a regular basis
feels like stalking.
I have been receiving alot of calls from this number i say hello they hang up it is really beinging to PO me it is not right
Received a call on 5/21/07 at 5:25 PM EST. Caller ID says Telefund Inc.
When you consider that we call hundreds of thousands of people. A small handful of complaints is to be expected.
Honestly people who dont want to get calls should let the charities they support know they dont like calls. Calling is one of the most cost effective methods of fundraising an organization can do. Stopping calls after a single attempt is crazy. The charity would be passing up on hundreds of thousands of dollars and for some of the largest groups.. Perhaps millions of dollars.
We do limit the number of attempts and each campaign has a time limit.
It is also always possible that people like yourself support many groups and it is not infrequent that we might be calling you on more than one list.
Honestly the best way to handle this is actually talk to the representative. Telefund hires people who care about these causes and spends a great deal of time informing us about the issues going on in this country.
We want to provide an excellent esperience for each person who talks to us.
You can look at it as a nuisence or as an opportunity to find out whats the latest project going on with your groups.
My boss always says above all we are to be an ambassodor for the organizations we represent.
I try to make that a reality with each call I take.
Answer the phone and have fun with the person your talking to..
If you dont want the call. Just let them know to remove you from that current charities phone list.
John, as you can tell your business practices are not doing your clients any good if this is typical. We have a planned giving program and these calls simply cause us to remove the charities on your client list from the charities on our giving list. If there is no answer on the first call, the stop the recalls.
This is not a flame just a suggestion from an old marketing guy who has learned the value of "merge and purge" when dealing with mail lists and call lists.
Four calls in the past four days, twice today. I went to web site provided by Matt and found several charities we have given to in the past. But not any more. AI is NOT one of these charities, so it would appear some name swapping is going on. Too bad as it turned of the gift spigot
called pgh pa 7pm googled....what came up: brian jones, in LA...i did not answer the call...he left no message.
called here. They hung up when I answered "Law Office"! I say good for Peter - can we really report them and get them fined? Can we notify their customers that they never actually talk to people and are a waste of money to hire?!
Hey, I hope I dont get flamed for this. But I actually work at Telefund.Inc.
We call for lots of great charities. As listed in another post in this string.
If you dont like getting called please just call us back and give us your phone number and say please dont call. (Might have to leave a message, the nice british lady left us.. :-( and hasnt been replaced yet)
All calling is done from a huge machine and then it sends the call out to a caller to handle the call for the charity. If you just ignore the call it unfortunatly will keep trying until the campaign is over. Typically a 3 week period.
Another person said they never gave to the spca. Your probably right. BUT I bet you did give to the ASPCA... THe American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
We only contact previous donors and we do try and respect the wishes of these donors to the best our ability.
Were actually a company that tries very hard to help out some wonderful groups.
Have recieved a call from them atleast twice a day for over a month...finally just answered today. It was Telefund INC calling for the SPCA. I will never give the SPCA money again now that these assholes are calling every damn day. I'M SO SICK OF IT.
Call came in at 4:31 PM on 3/14/07. Caller ID showed Los Angeles, CA.
Didn't leave a message.
called but didn't answer, left no message so i'd guess telemaketer
They called my CELL PHONE from this number and it was for the ASPCA. Nice guy, but I just told him I wasn't interested because I already do local charity work for animals.
Constantly calling at all hours. I know it's a charity solicitation, but they should get the idea when I never pick up. They can solicit me by post or e-mail or not at all!
Getting regular calls from these assclowns again. I don't answer, doesn't help.
1/17/07 10:30 AM PST
These people are relentless. I answer, no one speaks. Most of the time I don't pick up, but it is so annoying.
Received a couple of calls when I wasn't home. The latest one was on January 8, 2007. I called number (after researching on her) and they answered the phone as Telefund. I said, "Yes I'd like to be removed from your call list." The woman asked for my number and then said O.K. you might get one or two more calls because it takes 48 hours to remove a number. I said that seemed reasonable - we shall see.
Received 4 calls in 2 days, Called ID says 'California', left no message, We are on the Natinal Do-Not-Call list - guess that does not matter with them!
Bastards called me 3x this week. And they can't get booted from the do not call list.
PJ is right. If you have ever had any affiliation with any of those groups, you may get called from this number.
Yep, it's HRC and they call you if you've ever given them money or been a member in the past. They have an LA number too - 323-871-0684
Received call on 11/2/06 at 7:22 pm PST. Caller ID says unknown number. Googled and found Brian Jones & telefund. Left no message.

Telefund is a fundraising co. They call me everyday on behalf of the Democratic
National Comittee asking for a donation. They continue to call even after I requested they
Caller ID says "Los Angeles, Calif."
I answered once and was told they were Amnesty International. I think they are actually fund raisers for Amnesty.
Well, I actually CALLED them and a lady with a nice British accent told me they were fundraisers for several organizations, including the Human Rights Campaign Fund. I asked her to put me on their do not call list and she said no problem and it would take 48 hours. Think she was telling the truth?
Received several calls from this number over the past couple of days. "California" caller ID. Google resulted in "Brian Jones" and "Telefund". Very annoying.
Here is their "Contact Page" including the number. Perhaps someone should contact them.
3 calls, three days in a row, all about 4:30 pm EST.
Googled it to Brian Jones in california.
