I got a robo-call from an Orange County, CA medical center that was selling off its medical equipment piecemeal.  No special olympics mention.  I put them on our Block list.

Just sort of heads up for everyone here, I work for Dial America and have some simple yet useful info for you.
    Hanging up/ not saying anything / pressing random buttons/ pretending you're chinese/ making fart noises-then hanging up/ cussing us out/ even saying you're not interested = a call back at some point. We are not mind readers lol and for all we know it could be a problem with the telephone line. The telephone was  was created for verbal communication so it only makes sense that the ABSOLUTE VERY BEST MOST EFFECTIVE thing you can do to not receive future calls is politely ask to be taken off the calling list. You can even be a jerk about it if that's your thing and we still have to honor your request. We have a VERY strict policy enforced by law (Speaking for Dial America only) and if it isn't followed we lose our jobs, plain and simple . Also, if you're already on the National Do Not Call List and are wondering why you are receiving these calls in the fist place, you might want to do a little research about who can call you before accusing anyone of breaking any laws. Last thing I would like to say is....GFY's :)
                                            Love,

Our company has had this 800 # for almost 24 years.  The phone company told us that scammers from anywhere in the world can hijack our number and they can't be found.  The calls made are not even on my phone bill.

This was happening a lot with our number a few years ago.  Yours is the first to my knowledge this year.

When the phone company says they can't do anything it is a rather hopeless feeling.  

Everyone,  please say NO NO NO!

We have gotten calls from them constantly. They told me they were calling on behalf of the special Olympics. They wanted to sell a magazine subscription. I listened to them.... I work with those who are disabled, so I sat there to respect and listen to what they had to say. She was very nice and said they do not take orders over the phone, but they confirm that you are agreeing to a magazine subscription and they send you something in the mail and you send out a check or money order of some kind to them? I said ok.... and said that I will see when something comes in the mail if I want to do something about it (to get off the phone). Usually I would just hang up but I wanted them to stop calling because hanging up obviously didn't work before. I think the trick would be to tell them you are not over 18.

They are NOT a charity.  They sell magazines.  Go and give directly to the charity of your choice rather than feeling pressured into buying magazines (where a small percentage of your purchase goes to the charity).  These are unethical business practices.

Do what I did, I went on ebay and bought a set of phones that have a call block feature on them.  Now, when ever these idiots call, all they get is a busy signal.   set of 3 phones cost me 35 bucks used (they look new).  they work great, can block up to 30 phone numbers.  I can rest again!

These people constantly call.  I don't care if they are Special Olympics or not.  Donations are made by me locally and for sure not over the phone.  They say they want to fill magazine subscriptions.  HA!  No way am I giving Credit Card info to someone I don't know.  

Besides.......more than half the time telemarketers, etc use inmates to do their calling.  What's up w/ that?  Again - no way is anyone getting my financial info.

I'm totally sick of calls like this - what good are do not call lists!!!!!!!!!

This is a scammer... they can be calling from anywhere in the world. Do not give your info to them.

NO real way to fight this, unless you can somehow block the number through your phone company.

They call almost every other day if not every day.  It will ring 2-3 times and hang up before the machine picks up.  I do not have time for this nonsense!  What can I do to get them to stop calling??  I have been searching the internet for what this could be.

Live in KS, not CT, got the call, did not answer.  Immediately after, got another call from OU, where my husband went to school.  Didn't answer that either, they want donations.

Non-profits are exempt from Do Not Call registries.  Explains that, but doesn't explain why somebody in CT would call me.  

My guess is that it's a recycled number.
