Since it is no great secret that I think “breast cancer charities” that employ compensated solicitation callers (cold callers) are the scum of the earth, you think they would stop calling me right?
But no…. they don’t. So I called the above number’s headquarters this afternoon. The Breast Cancer Charities of America in Texas.
I never signed up for anything of theirs, I never attended any of their events, and I certainly haven’t given them any donations. Yet they magically know I am a breast cancer survivor.
Sorry that still bugs me over six years later.
I got some perky pony on the phone. In her up-talk voice she had to tell me that they operate these solicitation calls through a third-party and it takes a while to get them removed. So I gave her the 411: I’m putting her on my blog and I have been requesting to be removed from their list for months.
Good charities don’t do this. Period.
