stop calling!

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.

    Checked its BBB rating at give.org. They did not disclose their rates of overhead vs. actual spent on charity. Bad sign. http://abc13.com/archive/9317273/ is a news report on them 11/7/2013 by ABC13 in Houston. It’s an eye opener. It’s not a charity, ti’s a business. That’s my opionion.
