This call was received today, a Sunday at 3:38 EST. The guy pretended to be official, asking for a donation for some police association that helps establish laws for the increased safety of police officers. Having been a police officer that was shot on duty, I informed him of such and told him I had never heard of his organization before. He then stated, "Ok, we will call you during our next drive" and hung up. Obviously it was a scam since he could not even give a hoot about an officer who had been shot, even though he represents 'City and state police' I have now decided that all of these organizations are dirty having never heard of them before, or even personally after being shot. What a scam. Too bad our government does not take actions against these clowns. They should be arrested.
