This is District 2 - Fraternal Order of Police. The paid solicitors get 80% of each dollar. If you want to donate to the FOP, call the local office and they will gladly take 100% of each dollar donated. FFOP is the police union.

Multiple times we have asked them not to call and to remove name/number off their call list.
Insists that we have contributed and recently.
Pushy and rude and when refused raises their voice in a threatening tone. I had to hang up on the caller.
The caller identified himself as (something....) Mc Coy.
Calls come in as early as 8:30 AM and as late as 9pm. until they get a real person to answer.
If it goes to the recorder....they hang up.
A local Police officer friend told us to NOT give to the group. The police do not get the $$$ nor does the Fire Dept.

See Friend below for the real identity. This has to be harassment. The guy who spoke to me was a major DB and creeped me out. I wouldn't give money to any organization that would use these people.

I was suspicious of the Caller ID. I heard no voice on the other end. I hungup, but the caller did not immediately callback, which leads me to believe it's solictation or an unauthorized use of my phone number for other calls.

June 8th, 2010 Sick of it FL

I am FURIOUS!!! EVERY single night for the last WEEK I have received a call during dinner time from the SAME extremely rude individual from 904-265-9723. The man has a rather distinct voice and sounds like Jethro from The Beverly HIllbillies. I have repeatedly requested that I NOT be called anymore and informed this man that I would NEVER donate to someone that is as rude and obnoxious as he is on the telephone. He asks for Mrs. XXX and I tell him to NOT call that I'm not interested, he insist, "you're Mrs.XXX, the lady of the house and you need to listen to what I have to say." I tell him over and over to NOT call and he ARGUES with me about who I am and what number he has dialed. I am on the national and state do not solicit list, but it has done NOTHING to deter this idiot from repeatedly calling. After this man called tonight, AGAIN during dinner and upset me I called the number for Balance Incorporated listed above and spoke with Mike Jacobs, who identified himself as the office manager for the last 8 years. He advised me he would remove my number from their list and speak with the individual that has been harassing me. There is NO WAY I would EVER donate to the St. Johns County Fraternal Order of Police is they use such an awful organization to handle their fundraising. Tomorrow I will call the SJCFOP and advise them of the tactics their fundraisers are using.

I looked up this to see who was calling me.

I was NOT at all surprised to find out that it was the Fraternal Order of the Police.
They are the people who give telemarketers a BAD name and who make a nuisance out of themselves.
It doesn't matter THAT they have a calling service do their dirty work for them.

They are rude and unprofessional. They do not take no for an answer. When you try and be nice and say I am not interested they get nasty.
I have had then curse or say that we are not nice to NOT give to men and women who serve to protect us.
HOW the heck do they know what I give and whom I give to. Both my brother and husband are in law enforcement. Neither supports this organization.

They will use unethical means. An example was when my mom said "I really don't have the time for this...." and the man said "Okay, no problem I will just send the product to you and you can pay....." My mother was like "EXCUSE ME, no way are you pulling this scam on me, I did not in any way say I was doing any business with your organization"

They did this before when my parents were out of the state for several years for work. They sent tickets with a bill. They to be paid and when we called they said "We SPOKE to them about this and they have to pay" and I said "Really? That is hard to imagine as they have not been at this residence for 3 years. So someone is LYING?"

Any ways, time and time again we tell them to STOP calling and we are not interested.
Yet we get phone call after phone call.

Multiple times a day, multiple times a day using multiple telephone numbers....

In the past 3 or so days....

Sometimes they will call 3-4 times in less than an hour. It is a nuisance and harassment.
I will NEVER give to this organization, it may be for a good cause BUT their harassment and nastiness has made us wary of doing business or giving to them.

I will support those who protect and serve us using other means but I will never support the Fraternal Order of anything due to their tactics.

They call on and on, well what stop the calls is that they do not want me to read the bible from the kjv to them, nor sing about the blood of JESUS. I also do the same on my cell phone. All these callers cannot stand it.

I tried calling the (904) 346-0024 number that the Grinch mentions below, but it's disconected.
I bet it's a fund raising company for the Firemen or Police, which I made a mistake of contributing to (quite often)
but then they keep calling & they lie & told my hubby that I agreed to send more money when I didn't and said we just want to verify the address so we can send you the pledge form. Now I was obligated to pay! One guy even tricked me with throwing "God" out there, like he was calling to spread the word of God, but what he really wanted was for me to spread more money to the firemen of Jax. Using God's name like that was a low blow. I'll make donations on my own time, but will never pledge through those sneaky slimey guys again.

Started getting a series of these phony-caller ID calls recently, e.g., UTILITIES, CONNECTING, LOCAL AREA CALL, from 904/265 or 861 numbers. I have not, do not, nor will not deal with any company, organization, agency nor individuals which/who obfuscate their caller ID. Further, I recommend to everyone who receives such calls: don't let the machine pick up; answer the call with a breathless "please hold", put your phone on hold and go about your business. Let them take as long as they need to get the point. Many supposedly worthy causes unfortunately employ fund raisers who use such sleazy tactics. Which technically enables them to legally circumvent the DoNotCall restriction. I urge recipients of these calls... don't argue, don't talk, don't even attempt to request a "Do Not Call" listing. Imagine tying up 50 lines on hold in their boiler room for hours every day! Much more effective than waiting for some government investigator to give your mundane complaint any credence or attention. Just say, "hold on please"; yes, be polite.

Started getting a series of these phony-caller ID calls recently, e.g., UTILITIES, CONNECTING, LOCAL AREA CALL, from 904/265 or 861 numbers. I have not, do not, nor will not deal with any company, organization, agency nor individuals which/who obfuscate their caller ID. Further, I recommend to everyone who receives such calls: don't let the machine pick up; answer the call with a breathless "please hold", put your phone on hold and go about your business. Let them take as long as they need to get the point. Many supposedly worthy causes unfortunately employ fund raisers who use such sleazy tactics. Which technically enables them to legally circumvent the DoNotCall restriction. I urge recipients of these calls... don't argue, don't talk, don't even attempt to request a "Do Not Call" listing. Imagine tying up 50 lines on hold in their boiler room for hours every day! Much more effective than waiting for some government investigator to give your mundane complaint any credence or attention. Just say, "hold on please"; yes, be polite.

I have not, do not, nor will not deal with any company, organization, agency nor individuals which/who obfuscate their caller ID. Further, I recommend to everyone who receives such calls: don't let your machine pick up; answer the call, wait for the telescammer to come on-line and reply to his/her greeting with a breatheless "please hold", put your phone on hold and go about your business. Let them take as long as they need to get the point. Many supposedly worthy causes employ fund raisers who use such sleazy tactics. Any good manager knows delegation requires review and follow up; they should know better. Don't argue, don't talk, don't even attempt to request a "Do Not Call" listing. Just say, "hold on please". And yes, be polite.

This is a contract telemarketer doing fundrasing for Fraternal Order of Police and other local charities. They have a whole bank of phone numbers from 265-9702 to 9728 at least. They are very aggressive and ignore requests to stop calling. I called the FOP at 398-7010 and explained what was going on. A very nice lady said that the contractor was not currently fundraising for FOP but she would call them anyway, and that she would bring the complaint the the attention of the FOP chapter president - so FOP at least is listening.

If you want to donate to any local charities, you might want to donate anonymously with a cashier's check - otherwise you'll end up on "the list" and these people will harass you to death!

Very aggressive fundraisers working for Fraternal Order of Police. They called all summer and now have called 3 times in the last 24 hours in spite of being asked not to call. The number to call to get off the list is (904) 398-7010. This is a worthwhile cause but if you donate to them be sure to specify DO NOT CALL or they will pester you to death!

Call came in at 5:48 on 3/31. Lots of noise in the background, but didn't leave a message. Tried redialing this number and got, "We're sorry. Your call cannot be connected as dialed or the number has been disconnected".

We didn't pick up because we didn't recognize the phone number or the name ("Utilities") on caller ID. Turns out that this phone number doesn't match any utility company in our area, so it seems fishy.
