PLEASE INVESTIGATE CHARITIES. You might be surprised at what you can find.

In this case Innovative Teleservices is calling for the Childhood Leukemia Foundation,
807 Mantoloking Road, Suite 202, Brick, NJ 08723, tel: 888-253-7109, fax: (732) 920-8859,
EIN: 52-1825483.

This is an actual nonprofit organization that has several programs according to their most recent
online IRS 990 form:

* distributing (used? new?) laptops and Ipads to hospitals for kids in isolation
as part of "Keeping Kids Connected"
* distributing human hair caps ("Hugs U Wear")
* distributing "Wish Baskets" with pajama bottoms, games, hygiene items, and $75 gift cards
* distributing "Hope Binders" that allow parents to keep track of their children's care
for their own needs and also in case the parent needs to hand off tasks to people
in their own support network.

Here is The Childhood Leukemia Foundation's Charity Navigator page (they get 0 out of 4 stars):

Here is their 2013 IRS 990 form:
http://www.guidestar.org/FinDocuments/2013/521/825/2013-521-825483-0a5f8e1f-9.pdf

Throughout the entire history of the organization (1992 to the date of the 990 form, 2013),
they report distributing "over 6000" Wish Baskets and "over 5000" Hugs U Wear.

For 2013, they reported spending about $656K on the Keeping Kids Connected program,
$596K in 2013 on the Hugs U Wear program, $577 K on Hope Binders, and
$647K on the Wish Baskets program.
(Not sure how many of the total items were distributed in FY 2013.)

Meanwhile, they raised 5.7 MILLION dollars in contributions in 2013 alone, 5,6 MILLION in 2014.

They paid their executive director, Barbara Reid-Haramis, $153,113 in 2013. ( $ 182,559 in 2014).

They also spent $624K on other salaries.

They spent 71% of their income went for commissions paid for third-party fundraising, including the following:

$3,078,771 for Innovative Teleservices, Inc
2740 Pine Grove Avenue
Port Huron, MI 48060
tel: 810-989-5867, fax: 810-989-5868
13% net returned to the charities for which they solicit funds

$540,486 for Midwest Publishing/MPI [publishing, fundraising, teleph. solicitation]
10844 N 23Rd Ave
Phoenix, AZ 85029
tel: 602-943-1244, fax: 602-331-0702
15% net returned to the charities for which they solicit funds
http://www.tampabay.com/americas-worst-charities/solicitors/midwest-publishing-az-inc-mpi

$82,951 for Jadent Inc [fundrasing, telemarketing]
3795 River Rd N #3C
Salem/Keizer, OR, 97303
tel: 503-393-9500, fax: 503-393-2063
20% net returned to the charities for which they solicit funds
http://www.tampabay.com/americas-worst-charities/solicitors/jadent-inc

They also raised $339,704 that they didn't spend at all in 2013.

The IRS looks askance at 501(c)3 organizations that have employees/directors with six-figure salaries,
unless it is clear those persons' salaries are competitive on the open market. It would seem that a
charity that can only manage to spend 22% of its income on its actual charitable programs could hire a
director that could do just as well for less than $153,113. Unfortunately, the feds will allow abuse
to go on for years before raising any questions.

Meanwhile, the rest of us get inundated with phone calls on behalf of this organization, and the
people foolish enough to donate don't realize most of their money goes into the pockets of the folks
on the phone and the folks administering the "charity," not the kids with leukemia. (And apparently,
those who do donate will get constant phone calls forever after seeking additional donations:

RE: 480-505-8859... Caller SAID she was "calling for GoDaddy-dot-com."
The voicemail said they "need to update my info" BUT "my info" was entirely fictitious... because I've never done business with GoDaddy.
I have my own dot-com, but all you get there is my Service Provider & they don't give out customer info without a search warrant.
This may or may not be GoDaddy-dot-com but it's a SCAM in any case. They are either fishing for SALES or they are phishing for your personal info so they can ROB you.
Likewise, the alleged "confirmation" and praise given to these scammers thru various sources including Twitter is likely posted by the scammers themselves, with a fake identity.

Interesting -- an Anaheim, California address, with a Nevada phone number. How far would you trust this place? For ANYTHING? On an unrequested incoming (probably recorded) call?

I have been called no less than four times in two days from these people (866) 457-8859. I told them not to call me again...They said they would call again. I told them that I was serious and that I wanted them to take my number off their list and they told me, "lady, I am serious, I will be calling you again!"

They knew my first and last name even though my cell isn't under my name at all..

I don't know what scam this is but it better stop.

I started getting these calls from 866-457-8859. I also signed up for a drawing for PCH so maybe that is the problem! I never answered any of the calls. I google the number and this what I came up with . This must be a scam !!!

They've called me twice today. No messages. No way to call them back. The number listed on this website (314 963 8859 is disconnected now), and the number they call from (314 963 8895) is always busy.
