I am the Executive Director of a legitimate non-profit in Wisconsin. I just received a phone call from a lady asking if I work with anyone soliciting funds from New Jersey for our foundation with phone number 516-900-2942. We definitely DO NOT; however, when the lady asked for their website to go learn more about who they were fundraising for they gave her MY foundation's website. This is a TOTAL SCAM!!!!
I work for the Breast Cancer Detection Center of Alaska, a non-profit 501 (c) 3 organization. We get calls from our donors saying that Breast Cancer Survivors Foundation has called them for donations. I got a call from them this morning and pretended to be interested in donating to their organization to see what they do with the information. I was told I will get a mailer in one week with information for the donation. I was also told, they do not take donations over the phone. Somehow they had my name and mailing address. When I asked how they had gotten it, they said it just popped up on their computer. They did not want to stay on the phone for long, or answer questions. Their number was blocked when they called. Now, to sit back and see what they are really going to do.
