Really? Are you just kidding or is that what those letters really stand for? I'm just curious. If so they should find a little more new politically correct name.
called here. no msg. did not pick up.
Only number on Caller ID. Did not answer. No message was left.
ARC calls endlessly.
Says they are ARC & Cerebal Palsy but they are using spoofed VOIP line. ARC used to call me using their own phone with correct caller ID. Have to believe this is a scam. Many fake charity calls going around these days. All these donation begs seem to use the same truck that goes to a thrift shop on E. Colfax in Aurora.
STOP CALLING ME!!!
I got a call from this number 303-308-2414 on February 5th at 6:16 PM. It's from ARC and Cerebral Palsy saying that a truck will be in the area on a certain date and the person wanted to know if I had anything to donate.
It is a private cell phone, The Battista Team. Realtors. Are they using this to go pickup stuff from your porch? Pretending to be ARC? That's not cool. The post homes for sale and only take text messages. See Craigslist adds around Denver. Search for the phone number.
ARC, wanting donations. Caller ID said "Unknown Name." They usually use their own name. They call the first week of every month. I made the mistake of giving them something years ago and now I get about 8 of these calls every month always in the same week. They must share a sucker list or something.
Wow King, way to be politically correct. You sensitive? Your feelings get hurt easily don't they? Don't be such a pansy.
I just called the 303-231-9222 number and requested they take me off the list. They transferred me to the sweetest lady who promptly and nicely removed me from the list. She was very nice about it.
I need to be removed from ARC calling me every day, multiple times. This is highly annoying. My number is 303-377-1211 and I never want to see another call from ARC.
the number 303-308-2414 they hung up and it was the arc
Beating The Spammers!
I just forwarded their number to another Telemarketer. Problem solved. :-)
*63 if you have Comast VOIP.
Thanks so much. I called Linda and she said she'd take me off the list. Hope this works.
Call me at least once a week. Today I answered the call and they just hung up. How do i get off their list?
I donate to them all the time it's ARC. American Retarded Children they want household items and clothing
Got 2 phone calls from the losers at this number this morning, the first before 8:30 am. They never left a message. I don't know why ARC would be calling me as I have NEVER donated to them. Will try to block the number so they stop bothering me. I work at home and don't need these interruptions.
I have made the mistake of answering the calls before, which show up as ARC on the caller ID. The first time I agreed to leave them a donation to get them off my back and they never showed up to get it! Since then, they have called incessantly, several times a day for weeks on end. I'm lucky if I get a month break before they start in again. Each time I've answered, it's some sweet-sounding old lady calling about taking donations.Each time, I've asked them to put me on their do not call list. I've dialed them back and left a voicemail to take me off their list more than once. I've had it and it sounds like a lot of other people have too. If the number is not really associated with them, why hasn't Arc tried to do something about it?!
Something to keep in mind about all these continuing bothersome calls for surveys, so called charities and so called charity pickups despite asking them to remove you from their list:
Call centers have sprung up in my town that make use of the survey and the charity loophole around the do not call list; they have been a headache for law enforcement, emergency services, neighboring businesses and residential areas. When I ask any patrolling officer in town about these call centers, they are quick to state their frustrations about the criminal activity that some of these call centers have brought into the area. Several law enforcement agencies regularly visit some of these call centers looking for warrant arrests etc. I have heard from sources including from frustrated employees that work for these call centers complaining about the drug activity, vandalism of cars and neighboring businesses, break-ins and theft, drinking while on the job, smoke breaks are actually marijuana breaks, drunk driving, very dangerous driving, tons of tossed out litter of empty liquor containers, trash, food etc. I?ve even heard that the mangers are also involved in criminal activities and have even preyed on their legitimate employees who are simply trying to eek out a living on horrible wages. Also the operators are untrained in a very high turn around, poorly managed and dysfunctional work environment.
Also realize this when you call a companies? customer service line and get horrible service from the call center that?s been hired by the company. One time while on a call with our bank?s customer service, the operator was so loopy that it required ending the call and calling again to try and get someone else to help, think about that when you call a companies? customer service and the conversation gets odd, off the wall and obtuse ? you may be talking to an operator that?s drunk or on something. After 6 months of getting a different and wrong answer to our ongoing problem each time we called our bank?s call center, we gave up and closed the account.
With so little police left in our town due to cutbacks, they can?t always respond to vandalism and break-ins when it?s witnessed as they have their plate full responding to the major emergencies, this allows the criminal activity free reign, the neighborhood becomes the hood. Some insurance companies require proof of private security patrols before they will honor a claim due to vandalism or theft leaving the neighboring businesses off guard and uncovered. These businesses also have the added cost to hire private security, install security systems/monitoring, upgrade lighting etc. Then there are the dangers and headaches to the nearby businesses employees such as their cars being vandalized or broken into. Some businesses simply give in, pickup and move out of town.
One of my neighbors owns a call center and he requires that his operators are bonded, but I guess there?s no laws requiring this ? there should be. Right now in my town it seems like anybody can start up a call center and hire questionable labor for cheap without much regulation.
I my efforts the past several years to try and get something done, I am most struck by the fact that there?s no real help, everyone is more worried about being sued than dealing with the obvious problem - you are on your own....
First of all the Arc is calling you to see if you have anything to donate, you know....clothes etc..
And second you don't say retarded, you say mentally challenged, which you seem to be by using that term!
Please join the rest of the people living in 2012 and learn what is appropriate to say and not!!!
I'm not sure ARC does deserve any courtesy. Based on this thread, and the history on my phone, this has been going on for *years. ARC clearly has not done anything to curtail this activity. I try to ignore the call, but the call arrives at random times, making it easy to mistake for a legitimate phone call. Because they continue to call, even though I've asked numerous times to have my number removed. I consider this harassment which, by statute, is illegal.
ARC in Colorado. I called them twice last month to schedule a pickup but they did not return my call. Now they are calling me asking for donations. I wound up advertising the stuff on Craigs List and got $275.00 for it.
Tired O'there Calls
Here is what you do to any of these so called PICK UPS! First tell them nicely to put you on there Do Not Call list. If they don't respect that then give them a bogus address possibly out somewhere in the boonies, so they can come and pick up. Do mention while telling your bogus address that you have decided to donated some of your expensive jewelry and silverware.
Here are some of their numbers that we've been receiving calls from at odd hours.
ARC is a charitable organization which sends trucks to pick up any items. A recorded call comes every month regarding a truck being in your neighborhood.
i dont want to be on your call list! remove me or ill file harrasment charges! thanks
It's arc thrift store/cerebral palsy assoc. I want them to call me every month to donate items. If you don't want to be called politely tell them to take you off their list and they will.
The supervisors number is 303-308-2402. Her name is Linda I told her directly to remove me. It's very disruptive after telling them no less than 8 times in the last two months I work on-call and they wake me up, stop calling.
Got another call for donations, when I asked how many times ARC calls me per week or per month, the female caller hanged up. You have to be kidding me. We have donated on many occassions. Never again.
