Same as pwr below. Anybody that doesn't show a name (and many who do!) isn't legit. I never answer 800 or unknown to me numbers anyway. Of course, no message was left. They'll never get an answer here.

No legitimate caller blocks caller id. No legitimate charity raises money by cold call harrassment. Please don't be stupid enough to be taken by these sleezy creeps.

Foundation for American Veterans - a good example of a bad example. I have access to a web site that provides an analysis of a charities activities based on their IRS Form 990 (a charity's equivalent of a 1040 tax form). According to the analysis of the Foundation for American Veterans 2008 IRS-990, FAV spent:

$3,121,404 on fundraising,
$1,400,626 on administration, and only
$619,442 on program services

So $3.1 million went to the paid telemarketers who make the calls. Another $1+ million went to "Billers/Collectors." The president had reportable compensation of $80,417 and the secretary-treasurer had reportable compensation of $251,250. The rest of the "administrative" costs were most likely rent, accounting fees, travel, legal fees, etc. Only 12% of the funds they raised in 2008 went to provide services to veterans. Draw your own conclusion.

They called late, woke up my wife, said they wouldn't talk to me then abruptly & rudely hung up on me. I'm thinking about hiring computer hackers to take down their website. If I could get their phone number taken down, or at least screwed up, I'd do that to. Maybe I'll make it my mission to do just that for the public good.
No

Received call this am for donation. Told them I had to check them out first. Wanted me to give using credit or debit card--I refused. Said they would send me a donation form through regular mail. Afraid to e-mail them because my computer system got hacked a week ago and caused all kinds of problems with my friends.

received a call from the FAV. they were asking for donations. I told the guy, I give through the local VFW because I know the G.I.'s will get any proceeds with little or no cost to management. The guy actually thanked me and hung up. so, if you want to give, contact a local VFW hall or a military recuiter, and they will guide you in the right direction.

This Toll Free Caller, (866) 842-1465, most frequently is associated with a veterans' group - Foundation for American Veterans (FAV). I do not pick up on these calls, and received no message, just the dial tone. I have to personally confirm that MDS Communications is the non-profit fundraising company for this "charitable" organization. FAV may use other local fundraising companies in addition.

If it is MDS, the home (and only) page for this company lists a phone number [480-752-8140] ... and a click-on to send an email to [dnclist (at) mdscom.com] so you can get off their List. Corporate caption on browser screen says "MDS Communications - Telephone Fundraising is Our Calling". Cache and other info reflect that there was once a corporate website. Call and get off, or send email.

Note: this AZ company also has a physical location/ number in Bakersfield, CA.

Asked them what percentage of the money collected is disbursed for their stated charitable purposes ("care" packages to soldiers serving overseas). Their response was (after a lengthy delay), "20%". "20% fundraising expenses?", I asked. "No, 20% goes to the soldiers and veterans." (Veterans were somehow added to the mix during the process.) "80% goes to YOU for making a phone call? Screw that!", I exclaimed and hung up.

Sheesh...

***SCAM***SCAM***SCAM***SCAM***SCAM***This number is the Foundation for American Veterans. They refuse to provide information to the Better Business Bureau, and according to a Charity Navigator report, give under 12% of funds collected to veterans. If you call the number back, there is NO OPTION to have your phone number removed from their list.

I didn't catch the name of the caller or the organization however they claim to be putting together care packages for the soldiers in Iraq and were looking for monetary contributions. while I am happy to support our troops I would like to know the reputation of an organization before making a pledge.

This is a legit place requesting donations for american paralized veterans. They are the companies that send out the free address labels, and greeting cards for free to those who donate to the cause. They are actually supposidly helping the vets. I will accept their call the next time just to be sure and will report again at that time when I speak to them directly. At this time I only called the number back and it gave me that information on the answering machine. I hope that this information helps everyone to figure out that this is not a debt collector.

They said something about being a Veteran organization, but I just hung up. All the Vet organizations that call, and I deal wtih, will show on my Caller ID. This is just a scam.
Dave
 Apr 30th, 2010
the person on the other end tried to high pressure me into a donation. As a veteran myself I was almost swayed but it sounded to pushy for my taste. besides, I already gave enough. When I mentioned that I was unemployed he actually got angry and pushed harder. I am sure my fellow vets wouldnt act like that so this might well be a scam.

This is a professional non-profit organizational group, for the VA. I know two of my employees whom work for me, that have given to this orginization, and have both come to find out that the $30.00 that each of them have contributed to them, $1.77 of each total has actuall made it to the individuals that they say they are helping. I haven't ever ran or started a non-profit org, but I would think that out of $30.00, only $1.77 is making it's way to the people they SAY they are humbly serving, seems a little wrong, so If I were you, I wouldn't give a penny to this FOR-profit scam!!
