They call me all the time,too - - - I NEVER answer!!! & NEVER will - except to blow a freakin air horn into their ear!
No, what happens is, if you remove your number they just use another number. I do a special setup in which I am forwarding all of my calls to Google Voice from my provider before it gets to my home. This way I can block just as many numbers as I would like. Just get yourself a phone number from them. it does not cost anything to get just one number. All you need is a Gmail account and if you have that just type in the search for Google Voice and set your phone number up. It's very easy to do. Just follow the directions. Get these people out of your life and enjoy more privacy.
Here is the current list of numbers that I am blocking. Before using Google Voice they showed as being either MOD or Yonkers New York. On the GV page though it will show up as Westchester New York. I believe that Yonkers is just a spoof to keep the heat off of them.
1-914-294-2431 Westchester, NY (That is what I get for all 3 and I am thinking that they are running out of numbers because the 2431 number called twice in a row even though it was blocked. What happens is that they will hear an annoying message of your choice or the default which is 3 tones and then it says,"Were sorry the number that you have called is not in service".)
Remember to try Google Voice. It will make your phone much quieter. I was going to say for evenings and weekends but these scam artist do not have any respect for you and will sometimes call at any hour. If you would like assitance on this I would be glad to help. Here is my public email address. email@example.com
Same scumbags that have been calling for months. Caller ID says MOD. Never leave a message and are going on the blocked list as this is either an ignorant nuisance caller or a scam. I take it that it's March of Dimes and they can rest assured that a check or donation with my personal information will never again clutter their desks.
Do Not Call
also received a thousand calls. these people need to take a rest.if they are calling for march of dimes, i can guarantee that there is no money for people who harass. i tell people do not contribute. see your local charities.
I will be calling the March of Dimes headquarters at 914-997-4565 to complain EVERY time MOD calls me from now on. I reported this problem to them last year. Why are they still using the same abusive telemarketers?
This is the March of Dimes!!! Jonas Salk is rolling over in his grave. Never give a dime to this unconscionable organization. Here is letter I sent and their response. Please send similar letters and perhaps we can lessen such an evil!!!!
Dear Mr, May, Mr. Dezen,and Ms, Lynch:
Many of us are the victims of your unconscionable harassment. I am writing you in the hope that you still have some modicum of decency and will take measures to correct immediately this problem.
Your overpaid and evidently incompetent CEO has apparently outsourced your fund-raising to an unethical and corrupt telemarketer who harasses us continually with robo calls with the caller identity name MOD for March of Dimes. It is my belief that your telemarketer has unethically taken my unlisted number and that of others from the National Do Not Call List. Yes, charities are an exception but you must surely understand that it is a public relations disaster to obtain your numbers to harass from this list. Furthermore, it is my strong belief without any research on my part that the number of calls you make must under some law constitute an illegal and actionable cause of action with substantial liability for your organization. A basic principle which I believe is quite valid is that you never want to stink to a jury and what you are doing stinks to high heaven, to say nothing of totally discrediting an organization formerly held in high esteem.
A small example of the extreme rage and distress your robo calls have produced is evidenced on the website 800 notes:
"FIFTH call from them in FIVE DAYS. TWO calls on the first day; then two more; all from 914-294-2431, with "MOD" displayed on Caller ID. We BLOCKED this number, so YESTERDAY (a ~SUNDAY~, **SHAME** ON THEM) when they called, their call was intercepted by our blocking system and a message played to THEM:
"The number you have reached will *NOT* accept your call!"
So, today, they called with THIS number (4088) (and "MOD" displayed on Caller ID) at EXACTLY 9:00AM, which is 'legal' (JUST Barely) but REALLY ROTTEN. ***AWOKE A SLEEPING CANCER PATIENT.*** What about "WE WILL *NOT* ACCEPT YOUR CALL" (on TOP of being on the DNC LIST) DO YOU NOT UNDERSTAND???
I have put in COMPLAINTS with both the DNC List AND THEIR (March of Dimes) OFFICIAL WEBSITES."
For other complaints on this website see http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-914-294-4088/3
At any rate I demand that you immediately remove my unlisted Do Not Call Number [removed] from
your totally unconscionable and harassing robo call list. Otherwise, I will look more carefully into whatever remedies may exist for myself and others similarly situated.
Response from Christine Thompson, Donor Services Coordinator for March of Dimes
Thank you very much for this information and we apologize that you have received so many phone calls. We have noted that you do not wish to receive any phone solicitations from the March of Dimes and have permanently removed your number from the calling database. Please note that this request may take between 24-48 hours to process but after that time the calls will stop completely. Should you have any questions or need further assistance, please feel free to contact me.

Calls but leaves no message. If I choose to donate money to charity I do so at random. If you call my home asking you go to the bottom of the list, or completely off the list.
Have been calling every day. If I pickup and say nothing, there is noone on the line (robo call) I am on the do not call list and have been for years yet these unsolicited calls are increasing

014-294-2431 keeps calling but never leaves a message sometimes up to 3 times /day
Inflicter of Pain
I find these Terrorists, they'll be on the fist C130 to Camp Delta.
Tired of this number calling me ...... can you please put a stop to it?????
This # calls every day. Sometimes more than once. When I say hello a couple of times no reply and I hang up.
I sent an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org instructing March of Dimes to stop calling me.
stupid "MOD" = March of Dimes, if you pick up, no ones there, if you call back, it hangs up on you.
Believe it or not, marketers sometimes outsource their telemarketing to prisons.
Never ever give anything (info, money, etc.) to someone who cold calls.
Please, PLEASE DO NOT CALL my number ANYMORE!!!!
They called shortly after 8:30 AM with caller Id "Private". I don't pick up unless they start to leave a message and I find the call worthy of taking. No Id, no message-NO answer. I'm sick of these AH's disturbing my household peace. Even if it was the March of Dimes, I wouldn't answer.
I am on the do not call list. Yet I receive two or three calls everyday from this caller, even on Sunday. I want it to stop!!!
They ARE constrained - to SOME extent - by the DNC List Law. If you TELL them NOT TO CALL, then they MUST 'remove you from their list' (or create their own 'do not call list') and it must STAY removed for at least a year. They do have 30 days to do so, but, frankly, once you've input your number/request electronically into their system, there really is no excuse for them to continue to call, even within the 30 days. I, personally, PERMANENTLY REMOVE *AL* 'charities' who continue to call me, even within the 30 days, OFF MY LIST (of causes to support.)
Anyone who violates this - even 'charities' - is subject to fines.
WHOMEVER these people are - either 'Charity' or TELEMARKETER FOR the 'charity' OR CON MEN -THEY SUCK. I don't care WHAT their so-called 'charity' work is, this kind of HARASSMENT is UNCONSCIONABLE.
They have been calling most EVERY day since 11/21 and MULTIPLE times with MULTIPLE numbers. So far the numbers they have used, including this thread's number are:
I have BLOCKED *ALL* these numbers, so far. They CONTINUE to call, and, unfortunately, my system allows the phone to ring once, so it still disturbs us. They have been told, REPEATEDLY, via my call blocking system "NOT TO CALL" in accordance with the DNC List RULES, and yet they just switch numbers and try again. Today THIS number (FOURTH CALL - in violation of the DNC List RULES after being TOLD TO STOP) awoke a sleeping household at 8:11 AM, (ALSO A VIOLATION of the DNC LIST RULES) INCLUDING an aging Cancer Patient. Where is the 'charity' in that????
Mr. Number website lists this number as SPOOFED. A NON-EXISTENT number. Ditto for the other numbers, as well.
If you search on any of these numbers, SPOKEO listing of TELEMARKETERS ALWAYS DEFAULTS to 914-294-2500 which I SUSPECT is the TRUE number of the TELEMARKETER involved.
And, MyCallBot lists this number as originating from OSSINING, NY, which is the SITE OF A MAXIMUM SECURITY FEDERAL PRISON. Its *POSSIBLE* that this is a ROGUE operation set up in the prison via computer/cell phones to SPOOF these numbers and GET PEOPLE's CREDIT CARD NUMBERS and other personal information for IDENTITY THEFT.
**ALL ** these CALLS should be REPORTED to the DNC LIST and any other institutions you wish, including the FTC, your local law enforcement AND your STATE Atty General.
NOTHING about these calls is "Legal" in the way they are being conducted. Even "charities" have to follow SOME rules.
This is a VOIP phone number. They are criminals working out of Europe using a server in NY. They are Not March of Dimes. Unfortunately people answer these calls. Never answer calls from unknown callers. It is the times we live in. Criminals trying to still your cc card information. It is illegal but with corrupt greedy politicians this is what we accept as normal in our society today. Hopefully the people can get legislation to pass laws that requires phone companies to give users free call blocking. The phone companies and IP providers who control are law makers make money on each call. The calls will continue for that reason. This number is used by known criminals.

It is the MARCH of DIMES . Press 1 then 3.
This number is voip number. The number they are calling from is passing through New York to Europe. The 941 number is from Bradenton, FL. These people are obviously criminals hiding their location and true identity. The NSA knows who they are maybe they could use the technology to arrest these people. They most likely change the number per the region they are attacking. You can report these crooks they are not who they say they are. They are known criminals on the web.
Mostly likely criminals trying to get cc numbers acting as March of Dimes. Very common in Florida. The caller is marked private which against the law(federal) since Dec 2010, so you know it is a criminal. Why hide your charity name unless you are trying not to be traced.
Get calls from these jerks occasionally. They don't abide by the Do Not Call rules.
