It's just people asking for donations from alumns. Every school does this. Not a scam, but they do want money- your call.
This is not a scam. They are students working for the UCF Foundation on campus. The students talk to both alumni and parents. Please dont be rude. They are just doing there job.
Got a call at 6:52PM on a Sunday night asking for $150 donation to UCF Alumni service. Do NOT give out any personal/financial information!

I graduated 7 years ago from UCF, don't know if I've had this number call since. However, tonight at 8:30,
Ok, my daughter is currently attending UCF and I received a called from this # last night. Like many of you here I was skeptical so, I called UCF and it is an active # on campus. However, I'm still not giving my credit card or checking information over the phone. I requested the literature be sent by mail to my home address.
They called me tonight asking for a donation to UCF. They called at 8:50PM on a Sunday night, it seemed like a scam to me. If you are an Alumni, UCF should have your home address and email account, I don't understand why they have someone calling me so late on a Sunday night !
They call everyday and when i do answer no one is on the line. They must be using a computer dialing system. It is definitely a UCF number. Cannot get them to stop calling!

It was a young female and she hummed about 10 notes and hung up... Didn't recognize the song!

I'm an alumni as well, and I probably would be more likely to donate had they not changed my curriculum 18 times in the late 90s! I've paid my share for that beautiful new football stadium, I'm done.
It's UCF asking you to donate money. They're very hard to get off the phone once you start talking to them. So if you don't want to donate money, don't answer.
They called my girlfriends phone number, she is a UCF student, but they were asking for me by my first name only. The strangest part is that even though we live in Florida, our phone numbers have an Indiana area code. It's also puzzling that they were calling her number and asking for me who is not associated with UCF at all? Where did they get that her number was associated with me?!?
I have been receiving a call from them every night. They do not leave a voicemail. It is from UCF Alumni Association asking for money. It's not a scam, althought it is super annoying. I have donated to them before.
They have called me and I have never been a student at UCF. I think this is a scam.
Caller ID shows they called three times in one hour- but didn't leave a message at any time.
I answered. It was the UCF Alumni Assocation asking for money because of rising tuition and to help their intern program. But, they are slick about it. First, they verify where you live and email and that they just want to ask you questions about what you been up to in the past year. Then, once you are in good and comfortable, they asked for $100 then $50 and lastly $20.13 in a future deferred payment. You will get the guilt treatment.
They've called me every day for about a week now and no message and I'm not even an alumni I'm a current student.
"makes since, I graduated there!!" Does make SENSE!!! Another example of a great UCF Education.
I have received a lot of calls this week...UCF Alumni Association...probably means they are looking for money. Maybe I will pick up if I really feel like it.
Called me every day last week, hang up immediately when I answered, no message ever!!
They call me as well... almost picked up tonight but just missed it and decided to come on here.
Anyone know what they are calling for?
I HATE WHEN PEOPLE DON'T LEAVE A MESSAGE!
Called several times now, evenings also, but leave NO MESSAGE! My son attends there. Scares you thinking something happened or is wrong! AT LEAST LEAVE A MESSAGE!!!
1st call Sunday 13Sep09 @ 17:45. Left no message.
they've been calling me EVERYDAY at 8pm for a week now!!
