I receive these phone calls time after time all day long. They say unknown so I do not answer them. I am sick and tired of having to get up and go to the phone and see that it is the same number, and listed unknown. How can I stop these calls?
I keep getting phone messages from this number. Because there are so many scam artists out there trying to steal peoples' personal info as well as their money, and the government doesn't seem to be able to deal with, or keep up with it, I now only donate to legit businesses and causes that send me mail with their contact number I can verify.
They have called at least once an hour for the last 4 hrs... answering machine picks it up... they hang up.
These people are outrageous 9 calls in a 8 hour period. Really !! All they do when you do pick up is them asking for someone and if its not who they are looking for they just hang up. I told them various times to stop calling, they say ok 15 minutes later 2 more calls
They are on the America's Worst Charities list!

Unfortunately, the Children's Cancer Recovery Foundation that these bozos are collecting for is a legit, tax-exempt non-profit, so the Do-Not-Call list doesn't apply to them. They may be scammers, but they're not breaking the law.
This is a legit, but shady firm calling on behalf of Children?s Cancer Recovery Foundation. I love giving to worthy organizations and I will investigate this one and see what they do. I *NEVER* give money to people who call on behalf of anyone (they often keep 75% or more of your donation) and NEVER over the phone. The woman calling was poilite, started by saying I was hard to reach (which is BS) and went into her pitch. I asked her to takje my number off her list which she said she would do.
If they call you, just politely ask that they not call you again. DO NOT give them money. If you like the cause, donate directly.
I keep getting calls from 877-218-8360 several times a day. I sure am tired of all the calls. I don't answer.
The Do Not Call List law is a list of people who do not want to be called and a law that requires they not be called. For a scammer its one more law to break.
On the do not call list
I am on the do not call list...yet I keep getting calls from this number.
These people call every evening-I never answer.
This number keeps calling me. This is definitely a scam trying to take your money. Don't pick up!
they call me at least 4 times a day as early as 8am and even at 9;30pm. i never answer because i figure its a telemarketer, But i want to know why they keep calling as my phones are on the National Do Not call List. apparently thats not working. I want to answer to yell at them and tell them to stop calling, but not sure if it will do any good
Another scammer 877-218-8360, looks like the do not call list doesn't keep skum hawks from calling.
They asked for my father, I said he was at work, and they said "Oh, well there is no message... thank you" and then they hung up.
I ask who dis? Dey say childrens cancer. I say we dont want cancer here. They say then I should pay them. I afraid.
I am on the DNC list too!! You are RIGHT ,it is ANNOYING!!! This has been going on for years TOO!!! They don't CARE ! Well it time for to say ,I DON'T CARE TOO!!! Do what I do ,call them early MORNING HOURS and see how they FEEL!
That is 100% true. Doesn't make any difference if they are a charity or political ads. Once you ask them to remove you from their calling list, the very next time they call they are in violation of the "Do not call" list. I have verified this with the FTC. Once you tell them and they call you again, report them to the FTC as a violation. That is the only way to get them to stop calling you.
Scum of the Earth
Just received another call from this #. Happening daily. no message left. Am on the DNC list. Annoying! This has been going on for years.
Keep getting calls from Children's Cancer Recory Center asking for a $40 donation on my credit or debit card. They do not sound like a legitimate charity.

Founded in 1990, solicitors of Children's Cancer Recovery Foundation have raised $34,657,754 in charitable donations over the past 10 years. Of this money raised, $27,605,283 was paid back to the solicitors. When compared across America's worst charities, the amount paid back is even worse than the majority of these subpar charities.
Because of the money given to the solicitors, only $7,084,183 was actually retained by the charity, and of this money, $208,823 was given as direct cash aid. The amount retained is about average for America's worst charities, and the money given as cash is about standard for these mediocre charities.
Received a call from this number this morning. I did not pick up because I don't pick up from numbers I don't recognize. I looked it up here and discovered the number is connected with yet another annoying fly-by-night cancer charity.
Receiving so many telemarketing calls for cancer is enough to stop giving for cancer altogether. And I do know all about cancer, so don't call me unsympathetic: my father died of pancreatic cancer.
Called our mid-florida land line at 9.27a on 3/7/14. They left no msg, caller ID is 800 service.
Got a call on my home phone from this number. I'm on the DNC list too. But, u need to report them to the FTC, not the FCC. I have had alot of luck with them! Good luck!
I was called in Feb 2014 for a donation. Its sad that this happening considering that my husband is terminally I'll with brain cancer
Just got a call. Was able to turn my answering machine off in time.
Got this call this morning. Did not answer. All CID said was 877-218-9360.
Constant pain in the butt.
Received ANOTHER call from this # @ 9:20 a.m. today. Did not answer & no message left. Kid's cancer. This has been going on for months. Am on the DNC list. Very annoying!
