    I receive calls from the number 833-274-9586 saying they are the Fire Fighters who want donations. When I ask them if this is a real voice, the male voice says , Yes, I am a real person. When I ask them more, the voice says goodbye and hangs up. When I called this number, it says it's a non working number. So this call comes to my phone every morning around the same time, and I am sure it's a scam but it's irritating. When the call gets my answering machine, it hangs up. I'll try calling the do not call number to report it. If that does not work, I'll contact my tv/radio consumer guy to see what iu can do about it.

    Been calling for weeks. Claimed they were soliciting donations for the 'firefights support association'. They had my name. The person I spoke with had a foreign accent.
