Thank goodness for the ability to block calls. This one calls at least once a day. Am tempted to call to try to stop these calls, but that will only trigger them and other phony baloney numbers from calling. ARGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Stop calling. IF we ever wanted to speak to you we would have called you.

I have been receiving calls from this number for the past year and a half to two years, ever since I replied once to the American Cancer Research Center and Foundation's mailing requesting donations, at their listed number of 888-567-0102. Ever since then, I have been receiving calls from 813-881-1700 EVERY MONTH for about two weeks each month. I put them on call block, so they started calling using the number 11813-881-1700 and a couple of other numbers. Today I received another call and even though they are blocked, they are taking up space on my call block and I only have 20 numbers I can block, so I called them and told them to take me off their list, that I'm tired of them calling me two weeks out of every month, and that if I want to donate something, I will call THEM.

It's likely the calls are placed by a commercial fundraiser, such as Associated Community Services, Dial America, Harris, InfoCision, MDS, and TeleFund. Commercial fundraisers sneak in as Do-Not-Call exemptions but do not share the same protection as their clients. The FTC rules say: ''... if a third-party telemarketer is calling on behalf of a charity, a consumer may ask not to receive any more calls from, or on behalf of, that specific charity. If a third-party telemarketer calls again on behalf of that charity, the telemarketer may be subject to a fine of up to $16,000.''

They use an auto dialer and there is delay. If you stay on the line you will get a live person in just a few seconds. I donate my used clothing all the time and they leave a tax receipt when they pick it up from my front porch. I love these folks!

When I answered this, the line was silent and then it hung up. I called the number back, and they say they are a charity soliciting funds for the American Red Cross. I asked them to put me on their do not call list and they said they would. Whether they actually do this, we'll see...

Annoying early phone calls from Merchandise Pic. They do not leave a message and do not speak when you answer phone. They are calling from Tampa, FL.
