we get this call about 15 times a day - not exaggerating - i have taken the advice of other posts and picked up the phone, silently, and wait for them to hang up. sometimes there will be someone there saying "hello?" and then there is on-hold music, but other times the other end is silent.

We entered a drawing for a Pace Car at TX Motor Speedway.  We have been called no less than 20 times within the past week as a result of that entry.  They keep telling us we are 'major' prize winners and we must come to view their timeshare in Conroe within the next week.  We live in LA.  One guy even argued with me when I told him how long a drive that would be for us (4 hrs. - he insisted I was wrong!)  I have asked each and every caller why they aren't giving the Pace Car away and have gotten a different answer from everyone.  The last woman that called said that's not part of their giveaway.  What a scam!!!  They have found a way around the "Do Not Call" registry and are harassing us.  They will call 3-4 times consecutively at different times of the day if I don't pick up. They don't take no for an answer.  I'd like to know where to report harassing phone calls such as this . . .

this phone number started called us 2-3 times a day and then giving US a message.  After reading "Scammed"'s post.. I realize that we did the same thing. Entered a raffle when my husband and I went to a home show in our county's comunity college a few weeks ago. These calls started after that. So, we tried to answer it one day and there was a machine message asking US to hold...... never finished listening to it. HOW does one get them to STOP?

I made a mistake by entering into a lottery at a Mall more than a month ago to win a Mercedez on display. I am facing the consequences to this day. With "Awards verification" on the caller ID these people repeatedly call me on a daily basis multiple times though I have told them that I am not interested.They keep on calling me despite my disinterest.It is the Time Share thing & nothing more than a scam.Today the same people called and TEXAS CALL showed up on the caller ID.How do I get rid of them

I got a call today from 817-440-1032 but they were looking for a person named Joann (not me!).  I politely said wrong number and hung up.  They called back again (same representative) and again I repeated they had the wrong number.  I asked what number they were trying to dial and he actually did give my home number (which is unlisted).  So apparently this Joann person gave out a "fake" number LOL - which was mine.  I hope they don't call again.

Ridiculous!  I called them back and was adamant about not wanting what they were offering i managed to speak to a "Josh" he would was kind at first saying he'd remove my number from their automatic dialing machine. The calls seemed to slow thereafter. But since then they've been picking up, I get 5 calls a day!

Entered a raffle for a prize at an area home show a few months ago and i'm almost positive the raffle form didn't say anything about having to take a timeshare tour.  Anyway, they called me a few weeks later to explain what I could win, what I'm guaranteed to get, etc. plus the Fox River Resort timeshare tour kicker.  I brushed them off and mistakenly said call me back in a week (I didn't have time then).  So they called, and called, and called, dozens of times, when we weren't home, but left no message.  I picked up today cuz i was working from home and politely told the guy not to call me anymore because I was no longer interested.  But he kept asking me when I can come out to take a tour, etc.  I didn't want to just hang up until I got his acknowledgement that he wouldn't call me anymore. I argued with him for about 15 minutes, asked for a manager, etc but I couldn't get thru to this guy.  I finally said good bye and have a nice day.  Hopefully they never call me again.

they have been calling my house a mimimum of 3 to 4 times a day.  One day they called every 15 minutes.  When I answer the phone there is only music and then a recording.  I finally took the phone off the hook to try and stop the auto call cycle they seem to be using.  It worked for one day.

I answered the phone and it was music playing and then a recorded voice came on the line and said "Thank you for calling.You are important to us please stay on the line." I didn't call them they called me! After about 15 seconds of music I was cut off. No live person ever came on the phone. This is after I received 12 hang up calls from this number yesterday.

Yea theses scumbags called me to they said they were from the US attorneys office, when I called him on it the j*** off fell right into the trap I set, so these scumbags are just that, scumbags they tried to get into my account twice so you wouild think that my bank capital one would close my account after the first time , but they did not , so these jerkoffs tried again and my bank hit me with an insuffient funds charge which they claim that I should have closed the account. I wonder if these banks are in on it so that they can get the over draft charge thats $35.00 a piece makes you wonder who the real scumbags are. So if you bank with capital one beware what lurks in dark places , they also have a hand in your pockets.

I received a call on Monday, February 14, 2011.  A message was left by a “Dion Nash” from “U.S. Attorney’s Office” with the phone number (510) 250 1065, requesting a call back.  Before I could return the call, I received another call from this number.  The number shows up as 00000 on my caller I.D.  The caller asked if I was ******  and asked that I verify the last four digits of my social security number, which he provided.  I could not understand him due to a very thick Indian accent.  I spoke to at least 3 different men during the process and I could not understand any of them very well.The caller began by telling me not to interrupt him while he informed me of the situation.  When the phone line began to cut out and I had to ask a question, he reminded me that he had instructed me not to interrupt and to save questions until the end.  He also informed me that I needed a “lawyer” and that they were going to, “tell my employer what I had done.”  When I stated that I needed to consult with my attorney before agreeing to any payment without documentation, the caller asked if I wanted to see them in court.  I repeated that I had a right to written notification and that I could not provide payment information without validation of the debt.  I was again threatened with court and charges.During the conversation, I was informed that there were 3 criminal charges against me.  The caller listed them, but I could not make out exactly what he was saying.  I was able to make out the following words regarding the charges:-    Federal…-    Collateral…-    Theft by Deceit I asked several questions regarding the debt in question as I did not recognize the name that was provided as the original creditor, Instacash.  The caller informed me that Instacash was a sort of umbrella title for a number of online payday loan companies.  I was repeatedly told that I had received numerous emails regarding my outstanding debt at my email address, ******** .  I disputed this and requested notification in writing with an explanation of the debt, including the original creditor, contact number, loan amount, and origination date.  The caller stated that this information did not have to be shared with me and that I should check my computer activity for the information.  He also stated that the contact number of the original creditor is “private”.  He then stated that he could email a copy of the affidavit.  To date, I have not received anything validating the claims of the caller.The caller proceeded to ask if I have any prior charges and/or convictions of fraud or other types, judgments, etc. and stated that I had until 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday, February 16 to pay the amount due.  He refused to provide information regarding the original loan amount but quoted the current amount due as $8484.00.  He also refused to disclose the origination date but stated that it had been due on November 25, 2010.  He would not provide any further information until I called back later and stated that my attorney was requesting the case number, agency title, and mailing address.  The information provided is as follows:Name of Company:  Attorney at LawContact Number:  (510) 250 1065Address:  1395 Chula Vista                  Irvine, CA  92602 I do not recognize the original lenders name, date of activity, or amount.   I have checked all of my records, including my bank statement from November/December and all three credit bureau reports.  I have one online payday loan from 2010 through CashNet.  However, I did not take this loan until December 2010 (one month AFTER the due date of the alleged Instacash loan) and have been in contact with the company and am on a repayment schedule.  CashNet is also the only online payday company that I have been receiving emails and postal mail from regarding my loan status.

Received a phone call today from a Jason Robello regarding an "urgent & sensitive matter."  Mr. Robello has a "heavy Indian accent" and he told me that either my attorney of record or I need to call him back & that I better not disregard this phone call.  Something about an unpaid online loan.  I see they have moved to California now.  I've had calls from New York and Austin, TX.  I just copy the message from my phone to a cassette tape, then I turn it in to the FBI.  I will be doing that this evening and giving it to them on tomorrow.  I have made this decision and I intend to keep doing just that.

I received a threatening voice message from a female with a heavy Indian accent on Jan 29, 2011.  I called back and some guy answered, also with an Indian accent.  The guy I spoke to wanted my cell phone number to "look up my information".  I refused and asked for info on him.  He said he was from the US Attorney's office and kept saying he needed my cell number.  I hung up on him.  I spoke to my cell phone provider; they told me it was most likely a scam and to ignore it.  However, I received and took a call today (2 days later) from the same female.  She asked for my attonrney's information.  When I questioned her directly, she said she was calling from the US Attorney's office.  She said I had a criminal case against me.  I told this person that she didn't know what she was talking about and told her that I did not believe her.  To this she responded that I had better come up with $8000 or face arrest in 2 days!  I told her I was calling the police.  She said, "Go ahead, I'll wait."  I contacted the police.  They advised me to contact the Sheriff's department.  When I switched back, the lady had hung up.  I have never been arrested much less have a warrant.  However, I did take out a payday loan a while back.  Looks like I have to change my cell number.  Glad I checked this site; I knew something was fishy; but I must admit, this gave me a good little scare.

Kudos to "Sam" for giving the most intelligent and informative posts on this scam. READ, Bookmark and use as needed:http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-631-456-4041/2I have been receiving phone calls from this group since late April / early May of 2010.  There is a good chance that they also attempted to contact me roughly two years ago before I entered into Chapter 7 Bankruptcy protection, as I faintly remember hearing the same script more or less. As others have stated, the callers are difficult to understand.  Generally speaking their command of the English language is quite poor and their accents are hard to follow. At times they will get certain words or phrases mixed up.  It would be funny if it wasn't for the fact that they had:a) Your SSNb) Your home addressc) Your work addressd) Your banking infoe) Names, numbers and potentially the addresses of "references"f) A complete and total lack of ethics and a basic understanding of the FDCPA.  I have personally filed reports with the following agencies, often with limited (if any) success:Local Policemy state's Attorney General's officeFTCFBISecret ServiceGenerally the local police won't be able to help much.  The callers are using a combination of prepaid cell phones and VoIP, making them difficult to trace.  Also at their disposal are various spoofing tactics being implemented to catch people off guard - meaning the number that appears on your Caller ID isn't the number that is calling you for starters.  Without gaining a subpoena for the billing information for the numbers in question, the local police won't be able to get very far.  My state's Attorney General's office couldn't offer much assistance either.  I received a form letter in the mail that my complaint was received and I would be contacted if they needed additional info.  It was more or less the same information I obtained from the FTC.  They each advised me not to give the individuals over the phone any account information or to authorize payment.  That's just common sense, though.I never got anything from the FBI, either.  There is a good chance that since I haven't suffered a monetary loss that my concerns are low on the totem pole.  I hate to say this, but that is truly the case. Unless you were in the hole for a $1,000 (or more) you aren't going to get much more than "sorry to hear about your situation, change your phone number and move on".  I seemed to get some activity from the Secret Service.  I spoke with agent Doug Zloto. (Google him, referencing threads like these plus his name and you'll find his number also)  He seemed to care a bit more than the average person, but after giving him access to my Google Voice account, there has been no further activity from him that I'm aware of.In the meantime I changed the wireless number the fraudsters had access to, they have no direct way to get a hold of me.  (Calls at work have ceased for some reason)  That in turn resulted in my "references" getting phone calls from the crooks.  Here is a word of caution for women that have been getting these calls - don't say anything and just hang up.  The callers are quite abusive towards women callers.  Why?  Possibly the culture.  If they are Indian / Pakistani, women are second class citizens there.  You will be treated like garbage.  This happened to a family member when she was trying her best to be extremely nice over the phone.  The callers currently attempt to reach me through the female family member and an unused Google Voice number that they managed to find of mine.  I keep the Google Voice number open because, well, I can't delete it yet.  So, about every day, 4-5 times a day for the last week, I get voice messages from them.  It's usually just two full messages though - the other calls are broken up with static or they are attempts to read the script until the callers then screw up.  Really, they are that adamant on getting the script 100% that they will hang up mid-sentence and call back 30 seconds later.  At this point it's a stalemate with these people.  1) While they have the lion's share of information on us, they can't really do anything with this information.  Why?  Think about it.If they were to ever take funds out of your account without authorization, it's fraud and worse (for them) it is traceable.  That's why they won't do anything with your information, contrary to threats they make.  The money from your account has to go somewhere, and either your bank or a law enforcement agency can determine where the money was routed.  As a bank customer you are protected - you'd get the stolen money back in your account after 7-10 business days and the bank would be temporarily out the funds deducted from your account while they conducted their investigation.  The bank, along with law enforcement, would track down the fraudsters and apprehend them.  The fraudsters do not want to incur the wrath of a bank, just extort money out of you.  Remember that.    Your authorization would absolve the bank from any and all liability, leaving you holding the bag.  Never give them authorization for anything - for all you know the call is recorded.  2) We have no information on them.Seriously, this has been going on at least since 2008, possibly longer than that based on some accounts. (6 years??? Holy crap!)  You would think someone would have slipped up by now.  Sadly, they haven't.  We can continue to grow our own intel on them and compile lists of aliases and phone numbers used, along with paraphrases of scripts used in order to educate other victims.  I'm actually putting together a site now in the meantime where I'll host audio files and lists of previous numbers used.  800notes.com is great, but no two calls are exactly the same.  It would be nice to have a site dedicated to the scam and how it works. So that's where I am with these calls.  I have suffered no monetary loss, though I have been harassed both at home and at work.  They threaten me with arrest and other "fun" things in order to get me convinced I have to pay them.  My friends and family have been targeted and local and federal law enforcement agencies haven't been able to put a stop to things.  So, it is what it is.  I am out a wireless phone number I had for roughly six years, which is terrible since I was using that line when looking for a new job.  Whenever I'm bored I spoof my number using Google Voice and return the calls.  I've called them the poster children for birth control, etc.  Basically a lot of nasty things that I'm sure the moderators here wouldn't appreciate me repeating - bottom line nothing nice.  I always like to close saying their parents must be real proud knowing their sons weren't man enough to get real jobs.  That usually gets a decent response.  Way I see it - they can't do anything to me. (Despite a threat yesterday that my life would be f'ed up)  They can threaten all they want but my credit is frozen and my bank information has changed.  I've changed the only number they could really access me directly on and I've instructed my employer and family to not answer the calls.  I just call and harass them now when I find a few extra seconds.  What's the worst they can do to me?  Charge me with harassment?  Nope, then they would have to identify themselves.Oh, and don't bother contacting Cashnet USA about the calls.  Their "fraud" department could honestly care less.  Their "investigation" is merely a means of buerocratic CYA.  I would even be surprised at this point if actual law enforcement is involved in any shape, way or form at this time.  There is a good chance that the information these crooks have on us was obtained from Cashnet USA - either from a database leak or from a collector that was once authorized by Cashnet to call on delinquent customers.  The other chance is they have access to Teletrack, and pulled all of our information off of there.http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-646-274-1143/3For at least the last four years, possibly longer, a group has been calling former payday loan applicants advising them that they have defrauded a bank and are now being sued for non-payment of a loan.  The callers will claim to be calling on behalf of an attorney's office (name varies), the Dept. of Law and Investigation, ACS, or other similar combinations below:United Legal Processing DivisionMidline MarketingCrime Monitoring ServicesMonetary Crime DivisionU.S. National Bank Attorney General’s Office (usually in California)American Legal ServicesAffidavit Consolidation Services (ACS)You will be threatened with arrest, a costly trial and possibly worse.  In no shape, way or form can you be arrested for non-payment on a consumer debt.  Do not believe these threats, as they are without merit and cannot be carried out in the manner they allege.  Who are they? In the past when pressed by law enforcement for an address, the callers have provided the following information:David Morgan and AssociatesMorgan & AssociatesMorgan Associates954-727-8481 1155 Northwest 85th Street Wintergarden, Florida  33150 (Address is likely invalid)The collector's MO matches a once legit collections agency called Ellis Crosby & Associates.  Here are some links on them:http://www.budhibbs.com/collectorpages/ellis_crosby_and_associates.htmhttp://www.budhibbs.com/collectorpages/EllisCrosbyJudgment.pdfThey have been previously fined over $1.3 million for various violations.  They have been known to use phone banks in India to make their calls, which more or less coincides with the difficult to understand accent many of us detect when we are contacted.   The last time this group went by any "official" name was back in 2008:Ellis Crosby & Associates / Douglas & Morgan Associates4494 Southside Boulevard Suite #200Jacksonville Florida 32216Phone:  800-928-3536 / (904) 928-3536(Address is likely invalid)There are NUMEROUS consumer alerts out against this group of individuals:Florida:http://jacksonville.com/tu-online/stories/061107/met_176207561.shtmlKansas:  http://www.consumeraffairs.com/news04/2010/01/ks_debt_collection.htmlColorado:  http://www.coloradoattorneygeneral.gov/press/ ... lls_likely_origRhode Island:  http://www.collectionscreditrisk.com/news/rho ... -3002135-1.htmlWest Virginia:http://www.wvago.gov/internetloanscam.cfmMissouri:On July 15th, 2010 a Public Awareness Bulletin was sent out by Missouri Information Analysis Center.  "..received reports from individuals in Ohio and Illinois reference suspicious telephone calls they received. In both instances, the callers are reporting that a voicemail is received from a man, with a Middle Eastern accent, identifying himself as an officer working with the Financial Crimes Unit.  The message indicates that the reason for the call concerns a loan made by the receiver or someone in the receiver's family. The voicemail requests that a return call be made and a telephone number is provided. When a return call is made, the caller is asked to provide personal identifying information such as their date of birth and social security number.Reports indicate that the calls are frequent and persistent and that they even threaten arrest or legal action if information or money is not provided. It appears that the individuals making these calls may have access to some records connecting individuals and their relatives.  Missouri does not have a Financial Crimes Unit and all indications are that this is a fictitious agency. If you receive a similar phone call, please be advised that it is a scam and please contact your local law enforcement agency or the Missouri Information Analysis Center at 866-362-6422."Bottom line:Do not supply the callers with any additional information.  Inform them you have reported them to law enforcement and hang up.  If you haven't already, go ahead and report the calls to local law enforcement, your state's Attorney General and beyond.  Look up the local Secret Service branch's information in your area and get in contact with an agent there.  If you ever applied for a cash advance online, your information is out there.   Possible sources for the breach of your privacy are:* The scammers obtained your information from Teletrack - a reporting agency used by many cash advance lenders to determine their risk lending to you.  The service is able to tell cash advance lenders if you have existing loans with other companies, for example.  Many state laws prohibit borrowers from having more than two cash advances out at the same time. * The scammers created their own fake payday loan application site.  People looking for a cash advance went to the site and applied, thus freely providing the scammers with their information for malicious use at a later time.  * The scammers were able to get into the database(s) of cash advance lenders - probable targets being Sonic Payday and Cashnet USA.   How to protect yourself:* Inform your employer.  You are likely getting calls at home and/or at work, so make sure your employer is aware the calls are part of a scam and to not take them seriously.  Advise the callers that they are no longer allowed to call you at work.  If they continue to call, document the date and time of the calls you received.  Save voice mails left if at all possible.  * Change your number(s).  For some this may not be an option, for others a one-time number change can be done free of charge.Be advised - any references you listed on your payday loan application will be contacted.  Let those people know that this is a scam, and they can disregard. * Use Google Voice.  Google Voice is a great replacement voice mail system for just about any phone number you use.  Messages can be transcribed and voice mail recordings can be saved as mp3 files.  Pro Tip - call the scammers with a Google Voice number before turning off your old phone numbers.  Make sure when you call you identify yourself so they can start up their script.  At any point after they have your information pulled up just hang up.  They will then start religiously calling your Google Voice number.  At this point, you are free to change your regular phone number(s) and enjoy not having these people ever call you again.  (And laugh at the fact these people are basically talking to a brick wall several times a day)The scammers change their numbers frequently.  Law enforcement used to think it was because the callers ran out of minutes on their prepaid wireless accounts or they were shuttered due to fraud, but now they understand it's simply to evade detection by savvy consumers online.  With the proliferation of VoIP, it's even easier for the crooks to stay a couple of steps ahead of law enforcement.  Below is just a sampling of the 30+ numbers that have been used in recent memory.1-201-244-77221-209-349-73821-209-797-22121-212-500-08391-213-256-04081-213-995-30391-281-763-04331-347-289-39021-347-844-68171-347-844-68311-424-354-42701-516-232-89051-516-232-89351-518-212-02191-561-300-80181-561-210-41851-626-200-46461-631-456-40411-646-274-11431-646-810-86351-650-241-46041-707-401-40561-707-633-27891-708-401-05351-716-442-28241-717-862-40801-718-705-86691-760-514-01321-760-563-53841-772-318-49381-850-201-11111-858-777-19771-859-908-22811-866-860-45091-877-226-74881-888-706-74631-888-771-92491-888-785-44791-909-327-4870So can they really do anything to you?It's not a simple yes or no answer.  Logic dictates that, if they really wanted to take you for a ride and drain your bank accounts, they already would have.  So, why haven't they?  Authorization.  Why do you think you are being called so much?  Perhaps it is because they like the sound of your voice?  No, they have to have your authorization to take any form of payment from you, period.  The callers know their audience, and that audience is typically a bunch of people that have applied for payday loans in the past.  Most of those people they call couldn't afford an attorney if they wanted one, and are so used to receiving collections calls that so long as they sound like a real collector, they will likely be perceived as one.Furthermore, they don't even really want to talk to your attorney - that just sounds official and scary enough.  A real attorney would take the callers to task and write them off as two-bit con artists.  The callers need you, in writing, to authorize payment against the fictitious debt they claim you owe.  Go ahead, ask them for proof you owe the debt - more commonly known as verification of debt.  See what they say.  A phone authorization carries very little weight, so if they have something signed by you on file, you are done for - and the callers know that.  That authorization is the only thing these callers are doing by the book, and for good reason.  If they just went all willy nilly and made an ACH debit from your checking account, without your written approval, you could in turn report the transaction as fraudulent to your financial institution.  In about 7-10 business days, you would get the funds returned to your account.  Then the scammers would be up against a bank and their team of lawyers and investigators.  Bottom line:If you haven't paid the callers a dime, don't.  If you planned on paying them to shut them up, just don't.  Remember - you are not being contacted by a legally licensed, ethically owned and operated collector.  Read up on the FDCPA - http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/edu/pubs/consumer/credit/cre27.pdf - and know your rights.PS--The FBI sent out a Press Release on this scam just last week:Extortion Scam Related to Delinquent Payday Loans Washington, D.C. December 07, 2010  FBI National Press Office (202) 324-3691— filed under: Press Release The Internet Crime Complaint Center has received many complaints from victims of payday loan telephone collection scams. Callers claim the victim is delinquent in a payday loan and must repay the loan to avoid legal consequences. The callers purport to be representatives of the FBI, Federal Legislative Department, various law firms, or other legitimate-sounding agencies. They claim to be collecting debts for companies such as United Cash Advance, U.S. Cash Advance, U.S. Cash Net, and other Internet check-cashing services.According to complaints received from the public, the callers have accurate data about victims, including Social Security numbers, dates of birth, addresses, employer information, bank account numbers, and the names and telephone numbers of relatives and friends. How the fraudsters obtained the personal information varies, but in some cases victims have reported they completed online applications for other loans or credit cards before the calls started. The fraudsters relentlessly call the victim’s home, cell phone, and place of employment. They refuse to provide any details about the alleged payday loans and become abusive when questioned. The callers have threatened victims with legal actions, arrests, and, in some cases, physical violence if they do not pay. In many cases, the callers harass victims’ relatives, friends, and employers. Some fraudsters have instructed victims to fax a statement agreeing to pay a certain amount, on a specific date, via a pre-paid Visa card. The statement further declares the victim will never dispute the debt. If you receive these calls, do not follow the caller’s instructions. Rather, you should:Notify your banking institutions. Contact the three major credit bureaus and request an alert be put on your file. Contact your local law enforcement agencies if you feel you are in immediate danger. File a complaint at www.IC3.gov. Tips to avoid becoming a victim of this scam:Never give your Social Security number—or personal information of any kind—over the telephone or online unless you initiate the contact. Be suspicious of any e-mail with urgent requests for personal financial information. The e-mail may include upsetting or exciting but false statements to get you to react immediately. Avoid filling out forms in e-mail messages that request personal information. Ensure that your browser is up-to-date and security patches have been applied. Check your bank, credit, and debit card statements regularly to make sure that there are no unauthorized transactions. If anything looks suspicious, contact your bank and all card issuers. When you contact companies, use numbers provided on the back of cards or statements http://www.fbi.gov/news/pressrel/press-releases/paydayloanscam_120710

i recieved calls today at work, threatening the same thing, grand larceny, fraudulent withdrawal and deposits, and I actually got a number today that they answer the phone, the number is 5102271808, they answer, "Attorney In Law" i asked that an itemized statement be sent to the address they have on record and he said ok, thats al he said, funny thing is, I never gave my name, when i asked him if he knew whom he was speaking to, he got mad and said, "I already have all of you, we will get everything from you" and then he hung up on me.  I talked with my attorney today and he advised to take proper precautions such as pulling your vredit report and monitoring it continuously, and then making formal complaints to the Attorney General, saving voicemails, and documenting calls so that if this ever gets to the point we can get these guys, we will all have proof.  the best part about it, is that the bank account that they said it was deposited into, i opened after they said the funds were deposited!!!! but to protect myself, my credit report is now at my fingertips and i hope all of yours are too!!

I received a call from these damn foreigners too yesterday claiming to be from the U.S. Attorney's office. They were asking me if I had a lawyer and saying I'd had a court date in 3 days on allegations that I committed fraud, grand larceny and had fraudulently deposited and withdrew money from my account. I had no idea what they were talking about but I knew something was wrong because I hadn't done any of the above. When I asked the guy for his address he wouldn't give it to me, then he hung up in my face. I kept calling back and getting the same person, so I asked him where he was located, he said Irvine, CA but this is a 510 area code!!!! What is scary is this f****ng b*****d had my phone number and my the last 4 of my SSN. I called the police and the feds to report them!

Typically non-profit organizations are exempt from the restrictions of the DNC list. Check out the state website for details. The Do No Call List should stop MOST telemarketing calls but there are exceptions for:    *      Calls that you request    *      Calls made by businesses to existing customers or to consumers who have done business with the company in the past 12 months - for example: calls from banks with whom you have accounts or your credit card company    *      Debt collection calls    *      Calls from tax-exempt charitable or fraternal organizations    *      Calls from veterans organizations    *      Calls made on behalf of political groups or candidates

You are right about the 20% deal. It says so in their registration charter with the State. This is the new telemarketing scam: Create a non-profit fundraising organization that has some traction with the public and the potential to raise millions of tax-free dollars. Charge off 80% of the money raised to "administration, public education, etc" and you now have a legitimate tax free cash flow of millions and are also exempt from commercial telemarketing laws including the DNC List. Remember the "faith-based initiatives" rule under the Bush Administration? A lot of the money raised for those good causes actually went to to fund campaigns of Right Wing Republicans running for office. This also hurt long time charitable fund raising activity by organizations like The Salvation Army that uses volunteers instead of paid telemarketeers.  90% of the money raised goes directly to the poor and homeless that they serve.
