don't worry people -- mab is closing due to mismanagement of funds and shady business practices --after almost a century as a non profit it is closing because of nespotism and cronyism and a front room staff who has their hands in the cookie jar
Looked up "mobile blind" and company is Mobile Association for the Blind out of Mobile, Alabama and sell mops and brooms...pretty pricey per their price chart..
several calls from this number.. Called ID shows Mobile Blind, calling about the same time, no one there when phone is answered, if no answer they hang up before answering machine answers

Unfortunately, unless the companies who contract with your Contact Center provide you with a list of existing customers to contact, you are in probable violation of Federal Telemarketing Laws, especially the Federal Do Not Call List and state Do Not Call lists. Your status as a 501c3 organization only covers calls made to solicit donations to your organization or if your Contact Center client is themselves a 501c3 organization. I strongly urge you to have your association attorney research the applicable telemarketing laws and advise you on what your Contact Center can and cannot do. Right now you are at risk for indiviual, state and federal lawsuits. Every person who you called illegally could sue you in Small Claims Court for $1500 per call and states and the federal government could also sue for violation of applicable state and federal stautes.
Have been receiving this call for 3 days now. They call, it rings two or three times and then no one is on the other end. Very frustrating, to say the least.
Caller ID for this number, "Mobile Blind"
i have received this call several times a day for the past 2 wks. I just want them to stop calling. going to explain that i will report them to the BBB if they do not stop harrassing me. This is getting old fast.
Msg machine said Mobile Blind" I was at the phone when it rang but did not pick up as I have no idea who they are. After 3 rings they hung up w/o leaving a msg. OK; question is: how did they get my # as it is unlisted and not published? Robo dialer? At a charity? Yeah right.
This is one of many numbers that call frequently, even though we are on the National Do Not Call List.
Just got a call from this number - picked it up and put it on speaker. The caller said they were with payday loans and his name was Henry. Just let it sit there and he kept asking is anyone there - he is calling a buisiness and they are not with Mobile Blind they are scammers working with payday loan companies. They have no reason to call since I don't have any payday loans and would never take one out - they are loan sharks and are relentless. Don't even know how they got the number.
DON'T ANSWER THEIR CALLS NO MATTER WHAT THE CALLER ID SAYS! BUNCH OF LOSERS!!!!!
I have bein contacted by them & purchased a broom & mop, from what i gather they are lagit, the items were of good hand built quality, a little pricy,not terribly but these items are hand made of quality material & not china junk ran off by machines or child/slave labor in a third world country. sales people were not pushy. after the 3rd item in a year i told them i was also disabled & couldn't afford this often & was told i would be put on a dont call for a while list, i understand calling people who have donated, why return call people who did not. if many blind & disabled are imployed money is needed to run a facility. They offered the best product they could , and did not ask for money with nothing in return.
We are so tired of robo telemarketing calls. Please stop harrassing all of us. We don't want calls from any telemarketers! I answered this number one time and they hung up. One more call and I will block it. Our phone service only allows 25 blocks, so nearly everyday I have to delete one to add another one. I keep a list of these calls and I have three pages of telemarketing calls since June.
I have received a call from Mobile Blind 251-470-8645 almost every morning for the last 2 weeks no one responds when I answer, I have kept the line open for as long as 15 minuets the line does not disconnect like it does if they had hung-up but nothing is there no back ground noise or anything. I have called the number back many times it always says "mail box full". I think its a plot designed to dive us all mad and then come and foreclose on your home, then the government uses your taxes to buy it from them then give it to a privet corp. Fannie Mae and then sell your house back to you, then...Oh...their already doing that.....Well its a plot anyway I'll get back when I figure it out.
p.s. Hey DK I hope the number you gave was somebody you didn't like because they will most likely be getting more calls like the Mobile Blind now that everyone in the world might have the number.
I looked up Mobile Blind online and it is a company but the number they use in 1-473-3585 not 251-470-8645 so someone is trying to rip off that company and you, me and everyone else off!
Now that I know who this call came from "Mobile Blind" it absolutely guarantees that I (1) will never answer and (2) would never buy any of the products. Period.
people keeps on calling from that number and from another number 1-888-590-2265 bad connections and bad scam those people will get it . I wonder if their mothers and fathers know what they do for a living .. maybe the parents taught them to steal identitys ......
Kept getting a call from this number and would hang-ups. Today finally got a person on the line and they were asking if I needed assistance with any debts. I told him to take me off of his calling numbers and that I wasn't interested. He said the numbers called are computer generated?!?!!? Very annoying and this is a business number they are calling as well.
You think there are that many morons who fall for this s***!
Almost 2 years ago I bought some of their products made by the blind, a box of bags for my shredder and also made a straight donation. I wasn't thrilled with the bags' quality, but the money went for a good purpose so no real harm done. Since then they have harassed me by phone relentlessly. Telling them I am directing my charitable dollars among a number of other organizations and asking them to please stop calling me did no good. Today was the last straw. 3 calls by 2 pm. is outrageous.
I found their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Mobile-Association-for-the-Blind/480229245203
I plan on making my feelings known.
We are sick of this association . We will never help a blind association again, Anyone else but them. We purchase some item in the past, terrible quality, but we just wanted to help... We regrete having done so. I was unemployed the next time they called so I did not purchase anything,,, The person trying to sell me stuff turned extremely rude and unprofessional in every way, since then they keep calling.It's unfortunate people so unprofessional and rude will work for a charity. They have more money that we might think to spend it in daily phone calls nationwide...
So true, my phone number is no where CLOSE to 251-470-8645
They have called me several times in the last few days, I have never done business with them, do NOT intend to & I do NOT care if it is a "charity", sounds too much like a scam to me!
I answered & told them they are NOT to call me again & IF they do, it will be considered harassment & I will file a Police Report!
Needless to say, no one said anything, not even sorry, or we will take you off our call list.
was called three times in one day. When I answered some guy starts going into a sales pitch so I stopped him and told him he was calling the police department in new york city. The guy hung up quickly...hopefully this will stop the calls and if it does then I will use that with every one of these annoying calls.
take me off your call list
got a call today from 2514708645. What don't you people understand about the government approved DO NOT CALL LIST. I'm on it for my home and cell phones. Stop harassing me are you will find yourself in more legal trouble than you can get out of. This is harassment and since you are using the phone lines to do it it is a federal charge.
they call people 2 and 3 times A day and nite no one is there call the FBI and they will stop it.
