Oh well I experienced this too. Nowadays, I think lot of telemarketers used to defraud people. Smart people are too knowledgeable to grab this kind of scam. But this one is different, I've just read this yesterday, a Non-profit organizations, surprisingly actually paying a lot of money to raise money, so much so that little, in some instances, really goes toward the cause the charity asserts to be working towards. For instance, Bloomberg recently found in a study that InfoCision, a telemarketing business, was pocketing up to 100 percent of the donated funds soliciting contributions for various charities. I hope they have a little conscience to the charity, there's a lot of people are needy nowadays.
