I was at work and received a phone call on our business line from a man asking for the former manager of our store. I asked him if there was something I could help him with and he said that he needed to speak with a manager, the owner or anyone else in charge. I asked him what the nature of the phone call was and he became irritated said that he was calling from a non profit charity. I asked him what the charity was and he said the Pennsylvania Narcotics Officers Association. I told him that we are a corporate store and that many levels of management had to approve donations and that no-one at the store level had the authority to donate on the organization's behalf. He responded in a condescending manner that i was saying that the company I work for is against making donations to charities. I told him that it would be irresponsible and rediculous to come to that conclusion based on what I had said. I asked him for his contact info and told him that I would have someone contact them and he said "that's fine we'll call back again" and hung up on me. I can't believe that these ###s think that anyone will give them money after they harass people. Don't give these guys your money. For all we know they're just another fraud!!!
These people have been calling me everyday for about a week. I've asked them to remove me from their list but they refuse. They don't listen when I tell them not to call, they reply by saying things like, "you don't know why I'm calling, I'm not soliciting, etc". Today they called again and told me I made a pledge of $20. When I told them that was a lie and I never pledge or gave them any money they said, "all right Donald". I hung up. I NEVER take these kinds of calls and NEVER would give to an organization over the phone.
I want them to stop. Phone number on my caller id is [protected].
