This number is calling me everyday. I do not answer but they keep calling me back. Fed up with this crap. My rule of thumb, no message, most likely scammers.
With all this cold calling, I just don't even bother wasting my time answering the phone anymore.
I just let it ring and you know what, no one ever leaves a message hmmm you would
think if it is important they would leave a message.
It's a shame because now the legitimate charities are probably feeling the pinch because of crooks out there but is there anything legitimate anymore?
Makes me wonder....
Caller: Not The Wish Foundation, That's For Certain
damn Tina you part of this sham, you should be a'Sham'ed of yourself, ''Sham'' on you, you dumb broad. ''Sham'' on you.
I don't believe her pretended the owners weren't home Scamm warning from Crimestoppers
They're on their rampage again. Calling multiple times a day and I still won't answer them. Idiots. No answer, then they hung up. I called the number back but there is no ring, just a busy signal.
I blocked them but I will call them back whenever I feel like, especially if I'm up at 2 or 3 am.
Nice try but Children's Wish Foundations call center is not in The Greater Toronto area person at other end was laughing I want them to stop calling me fed up Said they were from Crime Stoppers Scammers Called and asked to speak to the owner of the house. When I asked who it was the girl huffed and said they were fundraising for a cancer charity. When I said I would take a message she huffed again and said she would call back. Her whole tone was full of attitude; if you are asking for money at least be polite about it! Plus we are on the do not call list. said they were from crime stoppers called and asked for me, when my husband asked who was calling,he hung up God for you for giving.The problem is with the caller. Whether or not this caller is legitimate, they do not leave messages, and they call repeatedly. If they were legitimate, then they should leave a short message mentioning a website where I can check their legitimacy, maybe securely donate using my credit card. Then, I might give.If you call, and I am met with dead air, or no message, then naturally my inclination is to think you are a scammer, and tell you where you can go. They didn't leave a message and the call cannot be completed when calling back! Called claiming it was for a local charity in North Bay (but with a 905 #). Trying to Sell tickets to a local magic event with proceeds to diabetes said his name was bill Watkins calling on behalf of the children's wish foundation. I said I don't do that anymore. he said oh and hung up. I called his number and nothing. no ring or anything. just silence on the line. I have donated to this children's wish foundation for years. The people calling are telemarketers working for this foundation. I have bought tickets to go to the magic shows, took my children to the Rodeo which was actually a lot of fun. I have also sponsored a child to go. You do not have to give your credit card number you can ask them to send you an invoice. Most charities rely on a third party to do their canvassing. I had the same thing happen
