Caller ID showed "LIFEGIVMOMENTS". When I picked up and said hello, a female asked for my husband by his full first name. He wasn't home, so when I said "He's not here. May I take a message?" the woman hung up on me without saying another word.

Same feral human troglodytes, different day. They have been calling me from three different numbers: 507-540-0340
We too are on Do Not Call Lists and have been since the beginning. All sorts of number like this call our home, we do not answer it, and yet they still continue to call.
We report them every single time they call. Sad that scammers & telemarketers have more rights than consumers.
With all our modern technology you would think someone could come up with something that would completely disable their phone systems every time they call a number that is on the Do Not Call Lists.
It is also very interesting that all these type of calls change their numbers so frequently. Makes it more difficult to track and or fine them.
It is just so irritating and alarming the amount of calls that keep coming into our homes on a daily, weekly, monthly basis.
This madness needs to stop.

Pain in the ass nobjockeys, robocalling telemarketer scammers. They also call from 815-687-8080
. Block their calls.
flagrant violation of "do not call". called - left no message. no legitimate charity raises money by cold calling and soliciting $s.
don't knowbody reelly know who these people are. I don't understand why anybody answer these calls...that's why they still callen fool....
Received a phone call this morning at 8:28 A.M.--the lady caller knew my name was Dan and she identified herself as "Amanda'. I asked her if I had given her permission to call. She said she was trying to help. I told her that it was a little early to be calling and for her not to call again. I had received a similar call a couple of weeks ago from a "SRT Research" or something like that. My wife passed away 12/5/13 so I don't know if there might be a connection or not.
Folks, the days of friendly calling are over, as is the privacy of your phone numbers. If you don't recognize the area code or calling number, DON'T ANSWER. If it's an important call a message will be left. I find the hardest thing to do is resist the impulse to answer, but remember, if it's important they'll call back or leave a message.
They called asking for someone who does not live here (male) the said oh wrong name right number let me speak to the man of the house I hung up she just kept repeating but this is life giving moments call came in 9 p.m. Stop calling and harassing people!
I am going to report them now.
this is a do not call home. what don't they understand. I am tried of there calls. will file if they don't stop
WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE??? THEY NEVER LEAVE A MESSAGE.
MY WHOLE HOUSEHOLD IS ON DNC LIST LANDLINE & CELL PHONE HAVE BEEN SINCE BEGINNING. BUT WE ALL CONTINUE TO GET NUMEROUS CALLS FROM AROUND THE COUNTRY--TELEMARKETERS EVERYDAY, SOMETIMES MORE THAN ONCE A DAY. THE DNC LIST,ITS NOT "DO NOT CALL" ITS CALL, CALL CALL! ANOTHER GOVERNMENT JOKE!!!

Yes, it's a bot. Doesn't matter what you actually say (or if you say anything at all) it's just documenting that your number was answered and a mark stayed on the phone for a duration of their blatant misrepresentation of a real call. Obviously if this was legitimate (at all) they wouldn't robo-call, but even if there was some unfathomable reason why such tactics were legit, trying to fool you into thinking you're talking to a real person gives it away that this is a total scam. The fact that the questions are so stupid and it doesn't matter what you say is just to sort out the entirely-gullible from the normally-gullible. I'm surprised they didn't try something like "This is an important message from someone you must obey: Send all your money to me at this address...."
Asked for my son who hasn't lived at home for 15 yrs & never at this address. Was not open to listen to my explanation, just kinda rude. Too bad individuals put themselves in an employment situation working for a company that is breaking the FTC laws. Hope more people would report theses types of companies & concerns.
We did not answer the call, but the caller, a woman, left a message: "Is Susie there?" This number calls on a regular basis, though we never answer the calls. This was the first time that anyone has left a message.

I don't answer calls from numbers I don't recognize. So, they need to stop calling me. I am on the national do not call list and I WILL report them.

Funny ring, not the one I have on my phone. I did not answer. Caller ID said lifegivemoments
Received a call tonight. The woman first asked to speak with Michael. I told her there was no one here by that name, and I had recently gotten the number she had called. She got haughty and said "Well, just so you know; I'm Anne Bain (Baine?) calling from Life Giving Moments." I replied, "Is that supposed to mean something to me?" and waited for an answer. She stayed on the phone, but, did not reply, so I said, "Just so you know; this phone is registered with the Do Not Call Registry and has been since I was issued this number. Call again, and I'm reporting you." She still didn't answer, but stayed on the line. I said "Fine. Don't apologize for calling the wrong number." and hung up.
I had to use *69 to get the number of the person who had called as it did not show on my caller ID.

These people rang my mum's phone this evening around 5:15pm mountain time. The CallerID said "Illinois." I answered the phone. A woman said, "hello, ___________." She called my mum's first name, like she knew my mum. I asked who was calling - there was no answer. I assumed she didn't hear me, so I repeated louder, "who's calling?"
She hung up.
Why do so many people think if their phone rings they must answer it?
You have Caller ID, USE IT! Do you let anyone coming to your door into
your home? Of course not. Wake up people, these are crooks, DO NOT
ANSWER when they call you! They manipulate the CID system so any info
you get is probably bogus anyway.
If for some insane reason you must answer it's too late! The second
you answer the phone you have told them you have a valid phone number.
They will then sell this info to other scammers. Pushing a # to
'remove yourself from their list' does absolutely NOTHING for you.
Do NOT call them back!
IF YOU DON'T RECOGNIZE THE NUMBER DON'T ANSWER THE PHONE! WAKE UP PEOPLE!
How easy is that?
Stop these calls with Phone Tray Pro - Https://www.phonetray.com/
BTW the phone block system the phone company charges you for does NOT
block all the calls Phone Tray Pro does. Disclaimer: I have NO connection
with Phone Tray Pro other than being an EXTREMELY happy customer of their
products. I used Phone Tray Free for years and now use their Phone Tray Pro.
Best money I have ever spent! I've seen references for a
Typical a-hole spammer. May Karma grant these morons and their families devastating health and financial hardships immediately as a result of their spamming and scamming.

The 1st question they asked me didn't make sense and told them so. They didn't care so II promptly asked for their website and told them I 'd get my information there instead. I hope they never call back . I strongly suspect a hidden agenda.
Not only are we on the DO NOT CALL REGISTRY, but the call came in shortly after 8:00 AM ...... Too early for even legitimate callers..... list apparently serves no useful purpose....

They call from various numbers at all times of the day. I've never picked up before but today they called at 8:30 a.m. Caller ID said "Illiinois" and I recognized the number so I picked up to demand they stop calling.
Woman who answered asked for male householder by his first name. I asked who was calling and she didn't respond but instead said she "could talk to anyone in the household who was over 18." I told her we've gotten numerous calls from them and that we were on the Federal DNC list. She said she would remove us from their list.
Will believe that when the calls stop
Called but did not leave message. Caller ID has appeared with different phone numbers before now.
Asked for me by first name
Interesting, that the name "Amanda" showed up here, too. As soon as I would have heard that name, which is associated with so much spam and scam and phishing, I would have hung up immediately. "Amanda" has been there for Credit Card Services since 2007 at least; she is a voice recording attached to a robo-call device. Her "home base" is in California, with a company called Pacific Telecommunications, which has connections to CallerID4U.
Last week, I got a call from these people. I picked up the receiver and began to punch the # key a dozen times or so. When I stopped, I heard a distressed woman's voice demanding "don't you know what you're doing?" Then, in the last seconds, I distinctly heard a man's voice on the line. I hung up.
According to White Pages, there really is a charity called Life Giving Moments, that to my opinion seems to work much like A Child's Wish. The group would probably do just as well to put fliers in church bulletins.
Caller ID said "LIFEGIVMOMENTS." The woman started asking nosy, fake "survey" questions. When I asked why she was asking me, she got very rude and just said "Okay, BYE!"
