The phone is ringing, and I don't recognize the number, All Caller ID says is, "NAME UNAVAILABLE".
Please help me figure out who is calling and what they want
The message starts with a female asking for a specific person, you ask what number they are wanting, they then ask to speak to the man or woman of the house, then a recorded message starts about their fundraising in the area. The entire call from start to finish is recorded, no real person at all.

Q&A: The National Do Not Call Registry
To halt charity calls you must revoke permission to call yourself. You are likely to find the calls are placed by a commercial fundraiser, such as Associated Community Services, Dial America, Donor Services Group, Harris, InfoCision, MDS, and TeleFund. As commercial entities, these hired call centers are expected to honor an internal no-call list and add any number upon request. Break that order, the FTC declares, and ''the telemarketer may be subject to a fine of up to $16,000.'' They are also covered to a point by other regulations for telepests, so you can kvetch about abandoned calls, bot calls to mobile phones, and so on.
