called on house number, answer and no one was there, dont care who it is! scam from wht othes have said!
I didn't answer but had a problem with them calling me at 8 pm.
This company does donate money to MADD........they call to for support ofMadd and they have a contract with MADD and so far have donated over 35 million to that progra, MADD needs the support and yes they told me they get phone numers directly from the organazation...so if you have donated some hwhere in the past they have your number. Just answer your phone ask themnot to call anymore and they won't. Poilticians call too for money........
True, nonprofits are exempt. But I've worked for a company that made calls on behalf of nonprofits, and they were a for-profit business. So how does the law treat those? Does the for-profit get a loophole because of the organization on whose behalf they're working, or are they still treated the same as they would if they were selling aluminum siding?
Caller calls often but doesn't answer back when I pickup the phone.
dial america fr201-257-40993/11/105:27pm
They called me I did not answeer I am on the NO TELEMARKETERS LIST
madd telemarketing scam
calls all day
Dial America, a telemarketing firm that gives a spiel about calling on behalf of MADD, asks if you are familiar with MADD, and goes into statistics about drunk driving. All well and good. They are not seeking a donation (of course not), but then proceed to try to sell a magazine subscription from which MADD will get a pathetic 12.5%. Told them, "no thanks, I would rather make a direct donation to MADD if I were inclined to do that." Then the spiel went that buying the subscription would support MADD year round. Sure, at about $0.25 a month. My number is unlisted and I do NOT want calls like this.

Got call from them today..no message on ansering machine..called them back was given a 800 number to call..no possibility of opting out from future call..now that makes me "MADD"
QUIT CALLING ME!!
This caller has been calling several times a day, sounds like a fax machineand leaves no message. My number is listed on the national no call list in Indiana.
At first I thought this might be a call from Mothers Against Drunk Driving (aka MADD)..."A call was recently placed to you from Dial America on behalf of Mothers Against Drunk Driving. We will attempt to reach you again within the next few days. If you would like to speak with one of our CSR's please call our customer service department at 1-800-654-1862 between the hours of 8 AM and 11 PM M-F and 10 AM - 6 PM Saturdays EST."That is what I got when I returned the call, an automated message. If they are trying to convince me not to drink and drive...don't worry...I don't have a car! But seriously....unsolicited phone calls is going a bit too far. They should buy a 30 second commercial placement on ABC or something. One of the quickest ways to turn me off of a cause is to call my HOME...because that means somehow they got my phone number...and I didn't authorize it. My only guess is that the phone company is selling my information for their own financial gain. I shall call them as well. Better yet I should call Dial America and ask them how they got it, and tell them not to give me that random dial bu***hit. Unfortunately, MADD is non-profit and thus the DoNotCall rules don't apply to them.
This number calls me several times also. I called this number and it is Dial America. If you want off of their calling list, you have to call their customer service number, 1-800-654-1862, between 11-8 monday-friday. Very annoying.
it calls three times a day and it hangs up when you pick it up. quite f***ing calling me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
this number has been the first and most consistant of unwanted calls to come thru on our new fax machine and new number. i am so tired of them. Please stop. I am a very ill person and suffer with pain and lack of sleep. when this company calls it is usually in the eve hours right at my most precious quiet time with my husband. This is unfair to disturb peoples lives in their own home.
called a bunch of times...left no message. Comes up as MADD on the caller ID.
Got a call 10/2/07, no message left. I already have a MADD ribbon on my car, that is enough for me.
None, but we do not want calls from this number.
We do not want calls from this number
HAVE HAD ABOUT A DOZEN CALLS FROM THIS NUMBER 201 257 4093NO ONE THERE JUST AN OPEN LINE
It IS indeed an organization called "Call America". They telemarket for other organizations...one of the is Mother's Against Drunk Drivers, calling for a donation. They are exempt from the Do Not Call law because they are a charity organization. What a load of crap that is. So this means that any organization can call us and ask for money, even if we are on the do not call registry. What the heck good is the law if they make companies exempt? You can call their 800 number to be removed. Thanks to poster BlueB for that number: 1-800-654-1862.
I also have had this similar call with no answer and thought it was because I was the male of the house, but they also did the same to my wife. The caller ID had a person's name but I don't know if the last name was all there as my caller ID may have cut some off, but my caller ID did have NJ on the end.. i.e. could be Park, Parr..??Caller ID: Rochelle Par NJ
Call several times weekly, dont leave messages. Caller ID as MADD 1-201-257-4099. Tried doing a little research, closest match I could find was a marketing firm listed in Hasbrouck Heights, NJ
Received three times in last several days. No message. Caller ID "MADD"
they called me too if it came up as mad its for mothers against drunk driving
Caller ID came up as MADD. Areas code (201) is a New Jersey number. Left no message.
LEAVES NO MESSAGE. THEY CALLED 2 TIMES TODAY, THE FIRST TIME THERE WAS NO ID, AND THE SECOND, THE ID SAID MADD. ANOTHER SITE GAVE AN ADDRESS SOMEWHERE IN NJ.
