Caller ID = Charity Pickup. They call me all the time; just look at all the complaints I've reported here and on the Do Not Call Registry. Based upon my previous complaints on this site, it looks like they call me every 4 months. Like Lupus, I will never do business with this organization. They call after having been asked politely to stop calling here. Since they don't comply with my request, I will continue to write complaints about them.

They called:

08/11/2014 - 1:19pm
08/12/2014 - 11:05am
 Aug 24th, 2014
Caller ID = Charity Pickup. They cannot speak to me because I have blocked their calls, but they continue to call me anyway. Called here:
05/25/2014 - 7:59p
05/22/2014 - 2:56p
05/20/2014 - 7:46p

And yes, I am the same Gina who has reported this caller in the past. Geesh!

Oh look, I'm reporting them AGAIN!!!
Caller ID shows "CHARITY PICKUP". I have since blocked this number from my phone, but they continue to call (or shall I say HARASS) me:
01/30/2014 - 9:22am
01/29/2014 - 7:39pm
01/29/2014 - 12:38pm
01/29/2014 - 11:59am
01/27/2014 - 8:44pm
01/27/2014 - 8:38pm
01/26/2014 - 4:55pm

So it seems that the only way to get rid of this parasite is to block the number. Continuing to report them to the National Do No Call Complaint website (which I have done each time!) doesn't seem to do anything--otherwise, you'd think they wouldn't call here any more.

Well I must be on the sucker list all by myself! My caller ID shows 1.651.748.0400 assigned to Lupus MN Pickup. However, I've been getting a lot of phone calls from Charity Pickup (tele: 1.866.959.2267).

Lupus MN Pickup continues to harass me by calling repeatedly; see below:
12/26/2013 – 8:43p
12/26/2013 – 7:56p – Yes, 3 minutes later!
12/26/2013 – 7:53p
12/26/2013 – 3:05p

However, Charity Pickup is worse than Lupus MN Pickup, if you can believe that! I received 11 phone calls from Charity Pickup between 12/15 – 12/23/2013:

12/23/2013 – 5:14p
12/22/2013 – 8:55p – Yes, 7 minutes later!
12/22/2013 – 8:48p – Yes, 3 minutes later!
12/22/2013 – 8:45p – Yes, 20 minutes later!
12/22/2013 – 8:24p
12/19/2013 – 4:24p
12/19/2013 – 9:58a
12/17/2013 – 8:24p – Yes, 2 minutes later!
12/17/2013 – 8:22p
12/17/2013 – 7:17p
12/15/2013 – 8:16p

I now have a phone that blocks these 2 numbers (however, my phone rings once before it disconnects the caller). You'd think they'd get the hint when I don't answer; when my phone hangs up on them or when I never call back to make a donation.

I have no idea who this is or why they would call me since I have never done business with them (it).
And yes, I am the same Gina who has reported them on this website in the past. Argh! (and I'm not talkin' pirate)

Charity Pickup is at it again! Called my house on 07/10 at 5pm; called on 07/15 at 7pm; called again on 07/18/2013 at 7pm. If I give them anything, it will be a piece of my mind!
 Jul 24th, 2013
Well I see that I've reported these guys in the past, and am doing it again. Charity Pickup called me again: 04/21/2013 - 8pm and 04/27/2013 - 9am. They are persistent.
 May 13th, 2013
Charity Pickup called my house several times. I did not answer.
 Jan 21st, 2013
Well it last a few months but they're back at it. Every flipping day.

They hang up on answering machine.

Received calls from CHARITY PICKUP on 01/26/2012 and again on 02/01/2012. I didn't recognize the caller's name; nor did I recognize the phone number. Therefore, I did not answer the call.

They rolled into my voice mailbox, but never left a message.

They waste our time. How?
1. You perk up when someone calls you, expecting it to be someone you know; so you stop what you're doing.
2. They roll into your message center (answering machine / voicemail, etc.) but they don't leave a message. So when they've left a "blank" message, you still have to delete it.
3. If you're angry enough to report them on the DO NOT CALL complaint form, you have to gather the information first, and then fill out the complaint form.
4. If you're still angry, you come to the Who Called Us website and fill out another complaint (like this one).
5. If you're able to do so, you block the caller.
6. Now you delete the call from your phone's Caller ID list.

All of this is wasting my time when I want / could be doing other things!

Calls me daily in the evening. Doesn't bother to leave a message..

This number has been calling my phone ever since I got my new number. I wish that they would stop calling me. They have been calling me at least once a day for over a month now. Charity Pickup??? Annoying is more like it.
 Aug 21st, 2010
I've already reported them to the FCC. They have no business harrassing people like this. And sorry, but no legitimate charity would operate this way.
 May 20th, 2010
Charity Pickup was on the caller ID. I've talked to them. They are requesting items set aside for donating.
 May 09th, 2010
They don't stop calling no matter how many times you ask. I think I'm just going to start screwing with them bigtime when they call, which is like twice a week.
 Jan 06th, 2010
Got two of these in the span of 15 minutes. Must not be quick enough to answer their autodialer; keep getting dead air.

Our phone service should have it so whenever a telemarketer calls our number they get charged a fee like a dollar or more that would be used to towards paying our phone bill.

I've had a STRING of Wells Fargo numbers call me. The JOKE IS ON THEM, I don't have a Wells Fargo Auto Loan, I NEVER have, and I haven't co-signed for one. But I get multipal calls daily, from 8 am to 8 pm. Wells Fargo are THUGS, LOAN SHARKS, THIEVES, raising interest rates when a day late, and refusing to take payments that are past due so they can charge MORE interest and penalty charges. And they do it all LEGALLY by our government. So people, if you've HAD IT, write President Obama with your personal story. Let him know policies haven't changed after our billions of dollars bail out to them. Also contact the Federal Trade Comission - FDCPA - Fair Debt Collections Practices Act. - - - - Check this out too . . .

Answered on first ring..only Dead Air so hung up
 Jun 23rd, 2009
On May 12, 2009 9:25am, we received a call from 866-959-2267. I let the answering machine pick up and the caller hung up.
What gives?
 May 12th, 2009
It's a legit charity. However, it doesn't seem to be quick to remove your name from its autodialer. I assume the charity pickup calls are done by a semi-shady third party.

I missed the called ID just has #. Called number and it is for Frienship Ventures is a pickup call center for some telemarketing company. They would not give me the name.
 Mar 13th, 2009
answered with intent to screw with him/her (I hate telemarketers), and recived 'dead air' said hello several time with no answer hung [I] up after about 15 seconds.

Woman identified herself as "Laura" calling from "Friendship Ventures." I did a websearch and found it is an organization helping the disabled.
