I use it as an opportunity to f*** with these pricks and waste their time as they want to waste mine so I start ranting on about government intrusion or conspiracys about ufos and that's when they get the hint to never call me again.
Must fo received 50 or more calls from this scum group. Scabs of the earth. I no longer answer the phone unless it is someone we know. Another Obama failure to go with the other thousand or so. What a mess this country is in.
I finally answered and told them STOP calling me. I am not going to give ever.
I asked her why the persist on calling eventhough politely asked to stop.
Her response was if we keep calling, eventually we will break you down.
I told her she has the IQ of a toad and I feel bad for insulting a toad like that....
She got pissed and hung up....
Today marks the 52nd call from this number. Despite being blocked with a "number disconnected" tone and message, these twits never seem to give up.
If this is really a charity, they don't deserve one red cent from anyone until they stop with the annoying calls.
Get these calls several times a day for over a year now. I have this number blocked, it is from the epilepsy foundation. The sad thing for them is that I would not be likely to EVER donate simply because it would likely ramp up the harassment from them. Bad enough now (9:00 pm on a Sunday) can you just imagine....some people just don't get it.
Please stop calling me. 888-322-8209
I have a seperate line on my fax machine so I don't know how they got that number but the fax machine picks up so the robo thinks someone is answering it and they call about 4-5 times a day. Then they must sell the number because I have about a dozen telemarkets that keeps calling which I don't mind since the ringer is off. I just signed up that number for DNC so we should see if it makes a difference.
No matter how many times I tell them I do nothing solicited by phone they keep calling
3rd time this week.
Annoyed again from the epilepsy foundation...

If it is Epilepsy Foundation they are legitimate and offer to take clothing and small appliances.
I don't know why thwy don't leave a message to say when they will be in the area to do a pick-up.
Sick of Robo-Calls
Calls two days in a row, no message left...ugh. It's the Epilepsy Foundation, according to these comments. They've been calling us for years.
This number keeps calling me. I do not wish to receive such calls from 888-322-8209
Thank you for this info. Time will tell how well it works !
Rec'd the call from 888-322-8209..this is not the first time. They called @8:30 pm and I did not answer it. I do not know where the 888 call is from so I did not answer it. Seems they called before. I called the # back and asked that my name be removed. This did not work. I am on the 'do not call register'. How to stop these annoying phone calls? Anyone!!!
Rings 4 times and no message, just another Robo-Dialer calling my house on a Sunday night.....
Thank you, I now know who belongs to that number. I found out on 411.com, it was a Victoria Tesoniero out of Wilmington, MA. So it's actually the Epilepsy Foundation. My telephone provider has the call blocking feature that I pay a fee for (*77), but I still receive "Unavailable, Out of Area and Private" calls.
1-888-322-8209 is the Epilepsy Foundation. I had it blocked so it rings once and stops ringing, but I can still see the number. After counting five calls made to my home today, all coming from this same number, I called it a few minutes ago and was connected to someone in "donations." I told the woman that five calls in one afternoon was excessive and she apologized profusely and promptly removed my number from their call list. I'm all for donating to worthy charities, but for this reason, they won't be receiving anything from me.
Epilepsy Foundation. STILL hassling us. I've lost count of the number of calls.
Whatever you do, do NOT give money to charities like this who use telephone solicitation.

Called my line 38 times never answered the call but they never stop.
they are not slime balls as you put it. Everyone has some stuff in there house that they are not using and taking up space, so why not donate it for a good cause, Next time they call, just tell them you don't have anything at the moment.
They don't learn
My phone provider has the ability to block calls from specific numbers in addition to providing a log of all calls, received, missed, etc. If your provider has this feature I would suggest simply adding the number to your blocked list, end of problem. If I see more than two calls from someone I don't want to hear from I just add the number to the list. Sad to say the list is getting long.

Agreed. When you pick up the phone, you are only letting them know they have reached a working number. These calls are made by robo-dialers.
I have kept their mailer because frankly, it will be convenient to have them come and pick up when I clean out my house.
