They are technically a charity and are, ridiculously, exempt from the laws that normally protect us. Fan then all straight to hell!
No More Solicitation
I've never donated to USOC. I don't know how they got my number. (And most recently called on a Sunday afternoon!!) But. I called the number back and followed instructions to remove my number from their calling list. I just had to listen to their Olympic spiel first.
They keep calling my cell.....if a number.net is not in my phone...I do not answer it so I wish they would stop
I receive a call from this number at least twice a day. I do not answer mostly because it only rings a couple of times. However after reading the other comments I will not answer.
These people have been harrassing me for years. After blocking each of their SEVEN numbers, and reporting them repeatedly, I thought I had finally got rid of them. But NO. Now they are back - I can't believe it. Why don't they give up? Isn't there a law against this?
I have no idea who they are they called AGAIN at 8 in the morning, plus if it's 8 Eastern, that means it's much earlier in CO where they're calling from so they know they're calling you that damn early...I've ignored them forever, today I answered and I was not pleasant-next time, I give the phone to my chatty three year old.
Received call from the 720-452-6378 11:30am 8/6/13---did not answer it but have contributed to the Olympics in the past. A month ago they called me from the 5655 number.
"Denver CO" showed up on the landlady's caller ID. As I do not recognize the number, I did not pick up.
This is a fund-raising outfit employed by USOC, the United States Olympic Committee. They have been harrassing me for years from various numbers, and now here is a new one. They also call from 720-452-5678 and 720-452-5655. They have called me at least four times this afternoon. I never answer them, and yet they persist. And it appears that I am the only one on their victims' list??? Why would they think I would ever give them a penny?? What a bunch of scammers.
