Received a call to my fax machine at 8:35 a.m. on 6/17/14. I returned the call, was placed on hold forever. I hung up and called them back again. When the woman answered she said, "Charity Clothing, please hold." She placed me on hold for more than two minutes and never returned to the phone. I hung up and called back again. When the woman answered I told her that I was getting calls from their number to my fax machine; could she please remove my fax number from their database. She asked me if my address was such-and-such and I replied no, it was not (the address she gave was very close to my actual home address) and asked her who the business was and why was I in their database. She explained that the person who had my fax number before me had donated to paralyzed vets clothing charity. She sounded legitimate; said she would remove my fax number from their database right away.

When 813-881-1700 calls us, multiple times per day every day, their recording starts playing on our machine and then suddenly a male interrupts the message "Hello, Mrs. _____" stating our last name. As we are not familiar with this number nor company, AND that our number is NOT LISTED, AND on the DO-NOT-CALL list, this is an invasion of privacy.

It doesn't matter if they are legit or not their spamming the American public and that is not acceptable to the majority of us. So they get scumbag rating from me. Especially considering the amount of robo calls I'm getting from them. Block and don't answer.
I, too, have been getting calls from Merchandise Pic. So glad for caller ID as I do not answer. Glad I'm not the only one getting these annoying calls.
According to the below posts the number is legit. However they are playing the call/hang up game and looking for inbound traffic. Any company that engages in this behavior must be stopped. Even with good intentions as a probable cause they are ROBO calling and that must not be a behavior we accept for obtaining their goal. I say BLOCK any company that uses robo calls and hangs up making people miserable. If you talked to this company and did what they asked your hurting us all.However I don't believe this company has any good intentions or they wouldn't call and hang up. BLOCK and don't answer.
If they are from the Red Cross then why did they say they are from my bank?
This number constantly calls my home and when answered there's never anyone on the other end. Very, very annoying and at times disruptive.
They call every day and never answer. Caller ID says Clothing Pick UP.
Your feet stink as much as your breath, so nobody could possibly be helped from anything a puke like you has!

This number too calls me constantly. I am on the do not call list and they still keep calling. Why would I help them when they call and annoy me with unwanted phone calls. I answered once and told them I am not interested in donating anything. I asked them to remove me from their calling list. They still keep calling.
Rcvd Call. NoMoRobo hung up on them. :)
OMG!!!.. these have been calling my phone over and over...
I WILL NEVER MAKE A F*ING DONATION TO THESE F*ING CHARITIES.
Don't bother trying to contact Schmidt?they use an auto-dialer and there's usually a delay of 2 to 5 seconds before they either pick up or make the next call. Instead, call Charity Clothing Pickup at 636-282-0000 and politely tell them that the way they conduct calls is highly irritating and that, because of that, you are no longer interested in donating and want to be removed from their call list.
What did you do, tell them you had no merchandise but will leave $588.00 in a brown envelope on my porch? Dumb A**! They really are the Red Cross at this number and they are always very polite.
I wouldn't give the Red Cross the fuzz from my socks that l got between my toes

This number is legit. It is from the Red Cross. I scheduled a clothing pick up online, and this number is from them to confirm my info and pick up date.
This is legitimate. Calling on behalf of the Red Cross looking for clothing and other items for donations. I have personally left items on my porch for pickup. This is one you can feel good about helping out.

My Caller ID shows [OUT OF AREA]...
Called phone number, nice lady answered, said I have reached "Charity Clothing Pick-up". I apologized, and said I had reached a wrong number. I said "Have a nice day", she said thank you.
Just my $.02
Unable to speak with a live person if there any live people. when calling the number back a recording comes on and says please hold. No one return to answer the call,
Same as others-- junk calling relentlessly, and we don't seem to be able to block it or stop them.
this # continues to call at least 2x a day - never leaves a msg - caller ID says - unknown
