dont bloody ring me at 8pm and hang up....i will withdraw my donations otherwise!!! Save the Children is a decent group that do a lot of good. I've donated to them every month for some time and recieve monthly information via e-mail on where donations are currently being utilised such as personnel involved, equipment and programs being funded and such. They phoned me on this number to tell me that my credit card has been cancelled and asked if I would like to renew my donation with another card or simply end my monthly donation. It's not nearly as bad as some sort of hard sell telemarketer. How do you cancel donation? I can't find out how from their website... Save the Children Foundation fundraiser. I answered but no-one spoke. I rang the number back and got an automated message saying it was P&O cruises and they would "call me back." Definitely a scam. Called me and just hung up after I picked up, and it's happening a few times, how weird.... This sounds like a scam posing as Save the Children. I have had multiple calls that drop or hang up.
I will put a block on this number and prob should contact STCF if people have used this number and spoken using their good name.
No one has spoken as yet to me.
Please report this if anyone else has trouble, if we don't there is no way that they will be stopped. thanks. :)
I received the same woman, 3 times over 2 days, claiming they are from Yellow Brick Road, I asked where they got my name (yes my name) and mobile phone number from and they said their marketing department, I asked to speak with a supervisor and she tried to end the call. I said I was going to ring Yellow Brick Road and report to ACMA and she freaked They have been trying me for about a week now, i currently pay a monthly amount to this charity but obviously they didn't recieve this months 'cheque'. Going to put them on block. Automated dialer ringing me and hanging up? I supported this charity for a few months but have no intention of doing so again.This number is going on my block list. I agreed to donate every month too. Then they said there was a problem with my credit. They call me at 8am too. Then they keep call me with the number but hang up when I received the phone. It's annoying. I have blocked this number. Never want to see it again They called me and called me until I answered and then told me that there was something wrong with my credit card and I said what do u mean and they told me they couldn't take any money I told them no because I cancelled my donations per month as I can not afford it and they told me that I had signed a 2 year contract with them and i was unable to break it otherwise they charge a lump sum.
I thought this was a charity not a credit agency. I just said u are not getting my details I do not want to donate anymore and I hung up ever since then I have been constantly harassed through phone and email so I blocked. Pathetic charity I think I would rather donate to people that do not abuse people that give part of their earnings
Same - unsolicited nuisance calls that are cut off after a few seconds. Absolute pests. Save the Children rings my mobile at random times and I have never donated before and never will. Have blocked the number!! Donated for 18months and when I called to cancel my payments as I had lost my job and no one would call me back or acknowledge my emails. I ended up having to cancel my credit card and getting another one issued... never heard from them until they were unable to charge my credit card with the next months donation!! I WILL NEVER donate to these people again. Can not believe how unprofessional they are. Please don't tell me this is Save The Children charity. I sent them donations for a couple of months FIVE YEARS AGO and just got a missed call from them now. Thanks for the heads up, love that this site exists to warn people! They just did the same thing to me and I have never hear of this charity Same thing. They ring and hang up. I am canceling donations. I cancelled my donations and they keep calling me at stupid hours and several times a day because they believe i owe them donations after i told them i no longer wish to donate. Over the calls had to put them on reject call list just to stop my phone ringing every minute after 7pm thru till 8:30pm. Hell im in bed at 6:30pm to get up at 4am like im gunna answer there bloody calls at that time of the night no consideration for people who work or have familys and are generally extreamly busy once home from work to run to my phone every time it rings. not to mention they cant ever say my name right how god damn hard is it?? Noo silent E you idiots geeze!!! Man i hate these guys!! Rant over lol sorry people. They keep calling at around 8pm but never leave a message. When I eventually answer it they hang up!!!
