New Charity tele-marketer Trick???

So the phoen rings last week with some Out of Area # on the ID and I let the machine get it. All the sudden I hear "hey Pete? Pete?". The voice sounded similar to my aunt so I picked up the phone.."hello? ....hi this is whoever from the children's cancer fund"

So today I get a call from an 866 # and of course let the machine grab it and all the sudden I hear "Hey Pete pick it up...."

So this is the new trick they use.

FTR my wife and I give plenty to charities, the church, vets, the blind, cancer foundations and FOP every year.

But that is just sneaky-sneaky!!!

That would be when I inform them they are never getting another donation out of me.

it should be illegal to send an unsolicited telephone call for commercial purposes. same as they aren't allowed to physically walk into your house to solicit you or put advertising signs up in your yard.

The do not call list has nearly stopped those calls for me. I've only had to report one guy.

I believe they cannot call you after 9:00pm so report their ass.

Get on the do not call list. If you get one of these calls make it clear that they are NOT to call you again because you are on the do not call list. If they persist report them.

I don't know if it happens everywhere, but here in Denver we constantly have people leaving flyers in our door. It annoys the heck out of me, and we probably get three a week. The worst ones bring tape and actually tape their ad to my front door. I'll tell you what, if my house ever gets burglarized, I'm going to sue the living daylights out of the idiot who taped his ad to my front door and announced to the world that I wasn't home.

They like to slip ads under windshield wipers here. Which means we end up with hundreds of these little papers all over the parking lot.
