I receive numerious calls through the day; therefore, I was forced to add to my call block feature
Called here at 8 a.m. today, reminding me that Veterans Day is Monday and that they are collecting for vets and shouldn't I be proud of them and support them. Yes, I am-my son is in the AirForce.
They wanted $50. then went as low as $15. then said they'd switch me over to their supervisor. I hung up. They just called back to remind me that I didn't give them my last name or address. I hung up again. Going to put then on my Call Blocking now.
Called 5 times between 8:00 and 5:00....don't answer unknown callers. This needs to stop.
These people are asking for money. They talk quick and when you hang up another person calls you thanking you for donating. I don't know what this is about but it sure does not seem kosher.
I have received a call from this company now 2xs. They say they are ACS a charity organization. The funny thing is I work for the real ACS- American Cancer Society a credible and reliable charity approved by BBB. The people who call from this other ACS is rude, not nice, pushy, and they don't know anything about the organizations they are calling about. It's a shame what they are doing.
I just received a call this morning claiming to be a Children's Cancer Research charity, I thought it was real and told them I would donate until my suspicions took over and I hung up when they transferred me. I have a blocked number so they should not have had it in the first place and they knew my mom and I live alone. And on the caller id it just says Michigan, but not the charity itself.
Rude annoying and more
Calling regarding Child Cancer Charity. I have added them to my blocked callers list. The only number I have ever had to add to it, btw. Called 4x today and last time was at night. Be sure to add their number to your block list manually or it may block a different number.
I came across this site through a search of this #. They are now saying they are collecting $ for "women fighting breast cancer". Woman on phone mentioned the same $20 donation stated by others on this site. I offered to let them send me info, at which point she thanked me for my commitment to give them $, and that "all contracts were reported to the state". I replied that I hadn't committed to ANYTHING, and had that I have made NO CONTRACT OR COMMITMENT. caller then continued her pitch as if I hadn't said anything,at which point I hung up. They called back 3 times in the following 30 min. It seemed as if the pitch (which is almost definitely recorded) was an attempt to rope the people being called into a verbal contract. I'm by no means a paranoid individual, and this is the first time I have ever posted on a site like this. I mention this to stress the fact that this call felt like such a scam that it prompted me to research the # and then write this post. In reading other posts I've seen references to collecting for children with cancer, servicemen getting care packages, and Naval veterans. That was all on the first page of call reports (I didn't feel the need to read further). In my opinion, at best this outfit is collecting $ primarily for themselves! At worst they are attempting to collect identity info on the people they call.
They call multiple times per day. They leave messages and I talked to them. Supposedly they are taking donations for breast cancer research. They knew my name. One person talks to you, then another one gets on. I hung up--wasn't comfortable. They kept calling. Finally, I answered again and asked why are they calling so often. They said we were disconnected. I told them we were not disconnected, I had hung up and am doing so again. And, I did.
I am on the DNC list, they are breaking the law?

THE DOCUMENTED HISTORY OF THE VAST MAJORITY OF THESE NUMBERS. DARE TO PROCLAIM TO BE DEBT COLLECTORS VIA AN ARRAY OF DIFFERING NAMES.
Someone from this number calls me and says "Thank you for your donation from last year we are hoping you can help again this year." the foundation that is calling I did not donate to last year or in the past. I wish they foundations would stop calling. It is like to donate to one organization and everyone gets your name and number and calls for more money....
Started calling several times today as one call stopped this one begin
I I keep getting calls from 248 351 5713. I do not who this is except it may be someone called co assoc. I am on the do not list, but they keep calling and I want it to stop.
called from this number, when I try to answer they hang up. they call about four times a night.
I dont want calls from this #.
Assoc Comm Serv has been calling 6 -8 x/day - early am & till about 10:00 pm. Have picked up a few times - no one answers. Most annoying. Stop it.
My family has received calls from this number multiple times a day for a about a week. Many calls were deleted from our phone's Caller ID. The one's not deleted yet were at 5:11pm, 5:22pm, 5:44pm, and 7:16pm on August 7th. 9:35am, 1:38pm, and 6:50pm on the 8th, and 10:26am this morning (Aug. 9th.) 8 calls in 3 days.
Always shows up as ASSOC COMM SERV 248-351-6713, and they never leave messages. The next time they call I'm going to answer the phone and see what happens.
They're calling earlier and earlier on in the day, and a call at 9:35am is getting to the point where if they call any earlier they would be waking people up. I'm sick of getting calls from them, and spam phone calls in general.
You would think they'd get the point that nobody is going to answer after at least the 3rd call, and would leave a message at the 2nd or 3rd call if it was that important.
How do you put someone on a block call list?
Fed Up with Grifters
ASSOC COMM SERV is a scam and is harassing my elderly relative. 29 calls in less than a week. They are listed in Michigan. I will report them to my Attorney General.
this company was asking for money that they said I promised.

Please remove my name from your call list. I am on a National Do Not Call List and have no ideal
how you got my number.
Tired of getting calls wanting money and say we have contributed before.
kept calling every hour and I would not answer the phone. Assoc comm serv came up on my caller id.
started receiving unsolicited calls several days ago, calling several times daily
I am not going to buy the call block software, I will not donate to any cause you represent and last but not least, the phone is for my convience. So, I will turn the damn thing of until I want to use it.
This number called 5 times yesterday - no messages. I called them back, got voice mail, and left a mesge that they should not call my number. They called twice this morning - no messages. When they called a third time, I said hello, a woman said hello, and then hung up.
They have been calling 6-8 times per day. I have not answered and they do not leave a message on the answering machine.
Like those above me, we have gotten several calls from 248-351-6713 lately. Most recently at 9:30 this morning, and around 8:30 last night. Since we do not recognize the name on Caller ID, we don't answer. We are also on the Do Not Call Registry.
