Just received a call from them this morning. At first I thought it was a good cause, I have a few friends that have Breast Cancer. I told them I would donate but not the $40 they wanted, then they transfered me to a other person, they wanted a credit card but I told them I didn't have any cards that I would like to use a check, then they wanted my name and address, I then said well you have my name, they kept on asking me to spell my name, I said well you should already have it, and asked them to spell it and I would let them know if it was correct or not. She tried to transfer me to another person, but I just hung up. I knew it was a scam then.
I have received several calls claiming to be charity for Breast Cancer. The callers voice is always the same voice, and when I search Google the phone number is always in the same area of Minneapolis, even if the phone number is not the same every time. If these were legitimate calls they should not call from cell phones. Charities should have callers use easily verifiable phone numbers to place their calls for donation requests. Anything else will be assumed a scam.
I just got a call from this number and the Caller ID showed Breast Cancer S. After reading the post here I'm glad I was fighting my answering machine trying to get it turned off so I could talk. I do know that 612 is a Minnesota area code, more specifically towards Minneapolis and the surrounding area.
What really ticks me off is I had a mammogram 2 weeks ago that showed a lump and a mass. The place I'll be following up though is not in Minnesota. People like these scammers need to get their a*# nailed. I have enough to deal with regarding this very issue and getting calls like this is beyond cruel.
I don't know what their parents didn't give them when they were children, but doing crap like this is inexcusable. Maybe to take my mind off my own problems I'll file a complaint against them and spread their number all over the place to blow their cover.
Called tonight, left no message. Caller ID read: Breast Cancer S...We don't give money donations over the phone and we're also on the DNC list. I'm so tired of these calls and am ready to make our phone number unlisted as well.
5/1/13 8:40PM - Caller ID showed Breast Cancer S and once again they talked over my outgoing message and in doing this their words are not recoreded. This is the 3rd call from them since 2/26/13.
4/25/2013 11am - Caller ID showed Breast Cancer S and they talked over my outgoing message asking for me by my first name. They called the first time using the phone number shown above on 2/26/2013 @ 5:30pm.
