I used to support the Mi FOP, but no more. A while back, I answered one of their (many) calls and told them it was a bad time and I couldn't afford to donate at that time... The guy said "maybe later?" and I said yes, "maybe later"... About 4-6 weeks later, I got a bill from them, wanting their $50...!!!! I will never talk to them ever again....

January 3rd, 2011 MAD AS HELL MI

What is with this epidemic of FRAUD- SCAM- HARRASSING- TO THE POINT OF CRIMINAL INVASION OF PRIVACY that is plaguing this country. STOP THIS INSANITY!!!!!!! People have lives to live and don't have time for all this insanity!!!!!!

October 4th, 2010 Vicki WI

Maybe a good blast from a blow horn would stop the calls...lol think I might have to try it.

October 4th, 2010 murphy MI

these people have been calling and calling. usually no one is here to answer but today I was home and answered. A Man asked for someone who does not reside here and when I told him he started to tell me he was MI Fop and would like to tell me about his offer or something. I interrupted him and told him that I was on to the scam that they were running. He kept insisting he was not. I told him to look it up on the internet because it was certainly there reported as a scam. He hung up on mr then! What an Asshole.

September 27th, 2010 dave MI

btw if you donate to the fop "police" expect more calls for fire and other agency's they are kinda harrasing that way once they think youll give or answer

September 27th, 2010 dave MI

fraturnal order of police its not a scam its to donate to the police or firefighters..how much they really get of it who knows but in the past i gave to them before and it was cool so your choice...i hang up now lol

September 24th, 2010 Jane MI

Get a least 3 calls a week twice I picked up and nicely told them we are a one income family and could not afford it. This is when they just hang up but still continue the calls. We now will never donate to the fop even when time get better.

I have gotten calls from the MI FOP as well. No self-respecting, and I would argue - legitimate - organization would harass people with countless phone calls, or at stupid hours, or behave like some of you have reported. I don't know if the MI FOP is simply in disrepute, or if their lines have been "hijacked" somehow by scamming idiots, but here's what I did about it [I have yet to see if this works, but it should]:

Here is an excerpt from the PR Newswire website, stated by the MI FOP:

Michigan Fraternal Order of Police
636 Michigan National Tower
Lansing, MI 48933
Questions: Toll-free: 888-FOP-MICH (888-367-6424)

The Michigan FOP also reminds the public that when making a contribution
to relief efforts to be sure they are giving to a bona fide charity.
Unfortunately, there have already been instances of scam artists collecting
donations and falsely claiming they are charity organization representatives.
The Michigan F.O.P. is the state's oldest and largest law enforcement
organization with more than 12,500 members. The Fraternal Order of Police is
the nation's largest police organization with a membership of 270,000.
Founded in 1915, the F.O.P. represents professional, full-time officers from
all agencies of law enforcement.

I called that number and reported the calls I was getting, mentioning you guys as well. I mentioned that no legitimate organization would behave like this. She apologized on behalf of the MI FOP, and said she could put me on their DO NOT CALL list. I told her that others have requested this from callers, and have been told they couldn't or further harassed. She explained that while your local lodge/s may still call [I've never gotten any local calls] - that this list would affect the statewide [long distance] calling. She said to give it a couple of days to go into effect, but that I shouldn't get any more calls from non-local MI FOP's [which is all I got, anyway]. She said if for some reason I do get another call, to call her and let her know. Maybe you guys could do the same. Her name is Mary Clark. Good luck to all of us.

September 9th, 2010 barnes MI

We have gotten these calls at home and here, in our office. At home, we do not answer any call from someone we do not recognize. Unfortunately, this number, and about 10 others with similiar scam-type solicitations also call our office and I have to answer every call that comes in, as I am customer service. I took to writing down the "scams", so I would know which calls not to answer, but now the list is so long it is impossible to get through before the call will stop ringing. Idiots. Stop bothering us!!

September 9th, 2010 Carol MI

Everytime I get a call from someone claiming they want a donation for the Michigan Fraternal Order of Police,which I know is a scam called, I tell them that I am busy but please leave a name and number where I can call them back. That is when they hang up. The latest caller said, "Oh we can call you back at...." and hung up midsentence. The above number is a landline in Fremont, Michigan.

September 8th, 2010 chas MI

I stand corrected. I said "MI FOP" stood for Michigan Friend(s) of Police.... but seeing someone else's comment brought back to me the correct representation, "Michigan Fraternal Order of Police".... I knew it was something like that. But whatever they call themselves, it's a bunch of B.S.

September 8th, 2010 chas MI

For years now (over 10 years or even more, I think), I've periodically gotten a call from the MI FOP (Michigan Friend of Police). This last time the phone number on my caller ID was 231-224-2083. They're always asking for donations and each time I tell them, "I don't do matters over the phone relating to monetary contributions, negociations, payments or investments." but they continue to call ever so often anyway. I asked them to put me on their DO NOT CALL list but was told they would continue to call for donations as they felt was necessary because they were calling on behalf of a charity organization. Even when I told them they were wasting their time (and more importantly...MINE!)because I'd NEVER do money related transactions over the phone unless I was the one who initiated the phone call, they got extremely indignant. I don't know where abouts in Michigan these "guys" are from but every guy who's called over the years has had a thick heavy southern accent. I've lived in Michigan all my life and I've no clue to where in Michigan I'd find so many people with the same thick southern accent representing a Michigan charity. This last time they called at the beginning of July 2010 and after seeing the caller ID with "MI FOP" displaying, I didn't answer the phone.

September 8th, 2010 Billy MI

Didn't answer

September 4th, 2010 Gameover MI

lol..the Gypsys are at it again !!! 231-224-2083

September 3rd, 2010 Chris

These people are rude and will not take no as an answer they yeld and cursed at me when I said no several times.

August 23rd, 2010 anti snow IL

This phone number is calling to try to SCAM money for the Fraternal Order of Police. I have NOT called the number, nor will I. It directs you to a customer service department that can answer questions using potentially manipulative techniques, help you waste your donation on fundraising fees, or anything else related to the FOP getting a small fraction of your donation, 12% to 27% Some fundraiser's pocket as much as 73% to 90% and up. Also, there’s information on www.badgefraud.org on the massive numbers of warnings put out by FOP Lodges that do not use so called professional fundraisers and Real Police and Sheriff and Fire Departments. But you can contact them there with any questions or requests.

BadgeFraud (dot) org is doing a lot of really great things for POLICE OFFICERS FAMILIES and the people that post are NOT trying to raise money, they are trying to protect the money of the people who protect us, and that is something very good.

August 19th, 2010 ClassicGirl IL

They've called several times and ask for different members of the household. They have already been told NO by everyone here. Yet they call and say one of the family members pledged a donation and they need some follow up info. What a bunch of crap!

August 18th, 2010 Lil Bit MI

this is not the 1st time this number has called me and tried to get money from me... but its a bunch of crap that they call and ask for my father whom is in prison.... or my grandfather whom is dead!
both of whom do not have the same last name or even ever lived in the same town or part of the state.

August 14th, 2010 KD

Twice in 2 days they have called and since I don't recognize the number I don't answer and the don't leave a message on the answering machine, so once again I don't answer.

August 12th, 2010 0xFF MI

Scumbags don't even put a person on the line. It's a computer pretending to be a person. I've told them to stop calling, but they call back every few months with the same recorded message. I hope whoever is behind this scam dies in a fire.

August 10th, 2010 D. S. MI

Please take me off of you calling list.

July 26th, 2010 erin

2nd time they've called.

July 20th, 2010 S MI

Do not call me. I asked that my number be taken off the list several times and it has not happened. They call several times a week! Very annoying.

July 20th, 2010 Roger MI

Hey Thanks you very much Brian from Michigan FOP, After talking to you twice in the last month and telling you twice that I am out of work (thanks for rubbing it in). I got thinking that I needed to renew my name on the do not call list. Oh by the way my wife of 16 yrs died 2 yrs ago and left me with three children to raise, I get SS but not the plethora of benefits the cops do.

July 15th, 2010 JOHN MI

YOU THINK SOMEONES GOING TO GIVE YOU MONEY? NO JUST MAKES US WANT TO COME THOUGH THE PHONE LINE AND SMASH YOUR DUMB FRINMKING SKULL IN!!

July 15th, 2010 JOHN MI

Stop calling me f**kers I'm on the do not call list.... 224-2083

July 15th, 2010 rpm MI

got a call from this number and the male asked "Is the Lady of the house there". I said no and hung up. 2 minutes later I received a call from 512-8793 with a male voice telling me about some candidates voting record. I think the first call was to determine if someone was home to answer and this led to the second call.; I am on the do not call list. BIG DEAL THAT IS!!!!!!!!

July 2nd, 2010 Keep Calling MI

Yep, "Brian" with a Canadian accent. How rude and repetitive.

July 2nd, 2010 no cops DE

don't give money to the police

June 29th, 2010 M. Hoste MI

This is from the legitimate mifop.com website:
The Michigan Fraternal Order of Police represents over 11,500 members across Michigan. We do solicit donations on the telephone. Our program is completely legitimate. We are registered with the Michigan Attorney General to conduct our program under the Michigan Public Safety Solicitations Act. All of our calls are recorded and can be verified. The funds raised are used throughout Michigan in a variety of ways.

We conduct an eighth grade essay contest that includes every school in Michigan with over $20,000 in U.S savings bonds to the winners. We donate time, money and bodies to the Law Enforcement Torch Run. We give financial assistance to the families of officers killed in the line of duty. Funds from this program are shared with our fifty five lodges that support local charities and youth activities in their communities. Many of your children have played little league, soccer or football on FOP sponsored teams. Many of your children have received scholarships from our local lodges. Funds from this program are also used to improve the working conditions and benefits of our members.

These are the telephone numbers we use for our fundraising calls.

This is NOT the Fraternal Order of Police
its a scam out of Fremont, MI

happens all the time throughout the country
just beware

June 28th, 2010 SWW MI

I remember this group from over 10 years ago. I believe at the time it was revealed that although they collected money for the MI Fraternal Order of Police this is an independent group which kept a substantial percentage of the donations for their own profit. My advice, if you want to support your local or state police departments, is to call them directly and make a nice donation so you know 100% of it is going where you think it is.

June 25th, 2010 JT MI

When I answered the phone a male voice said "Is the lady of the house there?". I asked "Who's calling?" and he hung up on me. Anyone know who this is?
Michigan Friend of Police? If so, why would they hang up?

June 24th, 2010 Michigan Mom MI

As someone who has family members who are poilce officers and firemen I have been told OVER AND OVER AND OVER that they DO NOT call or go door to door for donations EVER !!!! Even my children were told this in school when the fire and police departments visit!!!! I have been told by my family members to NEVER donate via door to door or a phone call!!!

June 19th, 2010 Rev James 02 Mexico

THIS IS NOT ABOUT THE GROUP ON THIS PAGE< BUT IT IS ABOUT ANOTHER POLICE GROUP>

THIS IS OUR PUBLIC EDUCATION CAMPAIGN ABOUT POLICE FIRE VETERAN"S AND CHILDREN'S CHARITIES. It can happen anywhere and when it does we would love to hear from you.

As for the group on this page, it would be a good idea to let your fundraiser know we are out here and now you know that we are looking at them too. I would not let them misrepresent because the first time they do and we catch them, it's all over with but the crying.

Officer Down Foundation,

This is a message from Rev. James revjames@pfcl.org of the Holy Land Spiritual Church Inc. in Maryland and its integrated auxiliary Police Fire Crimeline (The Badge Fraud Tip Reporting Hotline) www.badgefraud.org

I am only going to tell you this one time. Don't you dare come out here on to this or any other board and try to say you are trying to help fallen police officers. You are not trying to help anyone but yourselves. You think I am going to let you talk to these people who are trying to protect themselves from you in that condescending manner. Let me see if I can explain this to your two week on the job backside. Officer Down Foundation's program is to teach Crisis Chaplaincy to Chaplains, it is not to provide benefits to the families of officers killed, they only pitch that because their real program would not get them one single donation, and every time you say they are providing benefits to families of officers killed it is a lie and a misrepresentation and is potentially criminally actionable against you personally as well as your bosses David Fair, Paul Kutac, Phil Leconte and David Deriks.

I will bet you did not know that those are the same group of guys that run the Police Protective Fund and American Association of Police Officers and the Junior Police Academy. These men are so honest and hard working that even after several states sued the pants off of them they had to go out and start another identical fake charity. Remember "Operation False Charity"? Yeah, wow, they were part of it, and now look at who has come to defend them and their new carbon copy of the Multi State proven fraud the Police Protective Fund and by extension The Crisis Chaplin Project.

You, a person that I already know has maybe 2 weeks experience on the phone. I am going to offer you some sage advice from one of your elders in what is left of that industry. GET A NEW JOB! This one is about to disappear.

Now, you have called into 6 of my 50 states and misrepresented yourselves, Maryland, Virginia, Indiana, Illinois, Tennessee and North Carolina and that is a problem for your organization because that is where my organization is located and our mission is to protect charitable dollars specifically raised in the name of Officers Killed in the Line of Duty. Now let me tell you what my organization does. We search out and report fraudulent Police Fire Veteran's and Children's Charities and their professional fundraisers. We protect the money of the people who protect us.

If anyone reading this wants to help with a donation for us to keep going after these scams, feel free to email me and lets talk. revjames@pfcl.org And unlike David Fair attempting to claim 501 c3 status before it is granted, Churches, like the Holy Land Spiritual Church in the United States are granted automatic 501 c3 status so you know you can deduct your donation from your taxes when the law allows.

We also recruit former professional police fundraisers as volunteers to help us go after groups like yours and you would be welcome to join us as well. And we always want to hear any tips on fraudulent activity in public safety charities so we can report them too. The days of diverting money from non profits and charities that really give their money to the families of officers killed in the line of duty, are OVER!

What a coincidence that would be huh? A church and a Minster going after a Chaplain, I would say God called one of us and the other has a big problem not just on earth, but after life too.

Do you know how much easier our job would be if your Officer Down Foundation did not exist?

I am not the kind of minister you are probably familiar with that gets up on Sunday morning to preach about Fire and Brimstone. I am the kind of minister that BRINGS Fire and Brimstone to your doorstep.

See the problem for your organization is that because of your fraudulent activity, you are making us expend our donor’s money to investigate you because you see, that is what OUR donors (Holy Land Spiritual Church) gave their money too and they knew full well that they were giving their money for us to go after groups like yours.

That would be the exact opposite of your group where the donor’s think they are giving to the families of officers killed in the line of duty but what you dont tell them is that the money they donate is really going to David Fair's personal mission of this "Crisis Chaplain" concept.

Well if you did not know we existed before I am not surprised, they never tell you phone jockey's anything, but you are about to know we exist now.

It is our duty and responsibility to protect our donor’s money and the only way for us to do that in the case of the Officer Down Foundation is for them to shut down voluntarily or we must sue the pants off of your group until you are ended. Oh and that is not all you have to look forward too, in North Carolina where you are calling, what you are doing is considered to be a class H felony.

GET A NEW JOB! THE FREE RIDE IS OVER! WE ARE COMING TO SHUT YOU DOWN!

RECORDING ASKED FOR A SPECIFIC NAME, WHEN I HUNG UP, THEY KEPT THE LINE OPEN FOR OVER 3 MIN. THIS CANNOT BE LEGAL. I AM ON THE 'DO NOT CALL' LIST.

June 7th, 2010 Mifop MI

This is not a scam you can go to our website mifop.com and look for the numbers we use.

June 2nd, 2010 Thomas MI

We are continually harassed by calls from MI FOP... There are to many to be considered as a viable call.... I cannot verify the validity of the call and would never process any request via the phone or the internet because of rampant - Fradulent scams that are plaguing each of us daily. For what it's worth, any money that you give will not be verified against anything or any item of support. It will be a black hole.. Best to give to local organizations where you will see results for dollar given.
To bad, - the good guys suffer for the *ssholes that ruin good for their bad.

To reduce this issue, I left the following email with the MI FOP website and suggest that other afflicted with these calls do the same. If I do not get a response back will solidify the call as a SCAM.

My note to the FOP website
Please honor the DO NOT CALL LIST....
I appreciate the support that you MAY give to the FOP and others, HOWEVER, I rent the phone line for my purposes and not for anyone to abuse. We subscribe to the do not call list and have done since inception for very specific reasons. The one most importatnt is that I do not want solicitaions that I did not ask for. The internet list hundreds of these violations by MI FOP that are of concern to each and that have been annoyed by these calls for donations whether scammed or not.
Prior to calling any number, especially mine....., verify enforcment to the Do Not Call harassement policy. If I get another call, I will follow through with the process to secure harassement action.
I deliberatly left off my phone number to reduce proliferation of my phone number. You can contact me by email.

Thanks

Tom

Telemarketing possible scam. Persistent caller does not leave voice mail message. Accidentally answered and some guy yammering a mile a minute said it was the Fraternal Order of Police calling but not to worry, no one will be arrested. It took a lot of raised voice for me to get a word in edgewise when he started in about this call being recorded. I said, "Great! Record this: We do not take calls like this. Take this number off your list and stop calling." I hung up and then put the number on my "block" list, which is such a great service through VoIP.

May 17th, 2010 Laurie Davidson MI

A man called my 82 yr old mother requesting money to help the families of fallen officers. He told her that if she didn't have the money now, she could donate on the 1st of the month! When my mom asked for a phone number or address, he hung up the phone! I have many friends who are police officers, and in fact one of them was killed on February 4th, 1991, so I GREATLY resent these scam artists using our fallen police officers and their families for their own personal financial gain! I'm also truly angered and disgusted that these individuals are attempting to take advantage of, in this case, the elderly! SOMEONE needs to see to it that justice is served, and not allow these idiots to get away with this!

They hung up when machine picked up.

No identifying message left on voicemail.

April 25th, 2010 Port Huron MI

This number was on my ID on 4/20/10. MI FOP. It was also under "unknown caller" on 4/16/10. No messages. I was suspicious because a real business doesn't usually use caps for business name.

April 23rd, 2010 PAF MI

Caller ID was MI FOP, did not answer phone, went to machine, hung without leaving message. All calls are screened thru caller ID, and do not answer if no message is at least attempted.

April 20th, 2010 Mark MI

This number has called me on both my cell phone and my home phone over the last month or so. Impressive! Until I saw the other number in Google Phone Book last night, I thought it, at least, was unlisted. No matter--when I see a caller ID I don't recognize, I just let it ring.

April 19th, 2010 nicole rowell MI

I also got a call from this number..and a hang up.

April 14th, 2010 Greg MI

Left no message on Callwave.

April 8th, 2010 M MI

I think using an email address other than AOL (like one based on their website) would give a lot more credibility to their efforts.

April 6th, 2010 EeeZee

I am sure it was telemarketing to solicit money for a phoney Fraternal Order of Police scam. Call was not answered. They have called here repeatedly. I'll add them to the blocked list.

March 31st, 2010 snow

This phone number is calling to do fund raising for the Michigan Fraternal Order of Police. I have called the number. It directs you to a customer service department that can answer questions, help you donate, or anything else related to the FOP. Also, there’s information on www.mifop.com. Plus, you can contact them there with any questions or requests.
The FOP is doing a lot of really great things for Michigan police officers and the people that call are trying to help them raise money so they can do even more good.

March 31st, 2010 Capt Elton MI

If you read the FOP web site and call them, you'll find out that the FOP does not solicit by phone. Seems they always want the lady of the house, funny isn't it. Being Gay, I gave the caller to my "wife". The caller also said he couldn't hear "her" and hund up. Once again, another one of those Boiler Room Operations. Just screen your calls people. And really, in this day and age of Caller ID; if you don't know whose calling: DON"T ANSWER!!!!

March 29th, 2010 Katrina MI

called the number back and got a recorded message that they are a non profit group, Michigan Fraternal Order of Police, seeking donations. If you stay on the line you are given the option to be placed on their do not call list.

March 25th, 2010 km MI

I Called FOP and the # is legit

March 25th, 2010 Sam

Called last week also. I don't answer.

March 23rd, 2010 Bob MI

They call constantly. Each time we tell them NO, Please put us on your DO NOT CALL list. They still do. At what point is it friendly soliciting for donations, and at what point does it become harassment? It's a shame that the donotcall list is worthless to stop this crap.

March 22nd, 2010 lorraine

These people are calling me constantly. I am on the do not call registry but they call anyway.

February 26th, 2010 Don Berkley MI MI

Ditto John two posts back!
I received but did not answer a call from this number. Since I didn't speak to any person I can't comment on how they would have been.

But I do fully support the Michigan FRATERNAL ORDER OF POLICE as they are a fantastic group of public servants that protect you and your families.
They post this number on their home page and I recommend that if you are not happy with how they conduct themselves I would recommend calling their main number 1-888-367-6424 and reporting it.
Please review their website and if you feel comfortable, maybe you could make a donation to these folks!

February 23rd, 2010 John

All of you should check out the FOP website and report the correct information!
Maybe call them as well, because you all seem to be spreading incorrect information./

February 20th, 2010 Claudia

My # is unlisted and on do not call registry. Has anyone reported this to f o p? Newsstations?

February 20th, 2010 Claudia

I saw this # on my caller ID, so I called it back and there was a recording stating who they were and the support FOP provides.
I am a sharp cookie, guess I should not have been so trusting... any ideas of what I should do now?

February 16th, 2010 house lady MI

A young sounding man asked if I was "the lady of the house?" I answered: "No who is this?" "Brian, from the fraternal order of police." When I tried to get more information, he abruptly excused himself and would call back to find the "lady of the house" "another time" and hung up at the beginning of my next sentence. The call ID
said MI FOP 2:15pm 02/16/10. It sounded pretty "foppy" to me. I had just returned home from a brief errand, and (I have a brief memory a similar scenario from a Brian months ago), just crawled into bed, not feeling well. I say perfect timing for a fop to call.
I intend to do something about it this time. Sounds like a technostalker to me. Thank you for this sight, provided you are not "Brian", trolling for us curious and annoyed ones.

I traced it as far as a land line in Freemont, MI Newaygo County! I guess I probably could get a more clear definition through a search company! but I'm afraid it will lead to a unknown comp terminal.

I was given the phone from my significant other and informed the caller brian that i am a officer which i really am! i was able to track the 231-224-2083 number to a land line in Freemont, MI Newaygo County the jackass caller brian started playing games "i can't hear you". and so on. then I asked for his supervisor (LISA} whowas not available and said I could call a 877-367-7570 number and speak to lisa!

Call registered as MI FOP and they were also asking for the lady of the house, and then said they'd call back later because someone was beside the speaker, what was odd is that somebody really was beside me. Wild guess perhaps or does this "Fraternity of Police" spy on people or something?

wouldn't answer how he got my name and number- hung up on me

Got a call from the MI FOP from this number. Wanted to talk to the lady of the house, and when I tried to tell them she wasnt' home and could i take a message, they said "WE CAN'T hear you, we'll call back later". Probably trying to get a sympathy donation.

Michigan Frat of Police looking for donations

February 2nd, 2010 -

was looking for "the lady of the house"

When I looked this up on reverse phone look up it said it was for Lucre, Inc. based in Fremont, MI. Luckily I missed the call and didn't have to talk with these jokers.

Don't answer! This is NOT for the MI FOP, but seems to be a scam fun in their name. MI FOP uses "C4C", not "CTC Marketing."
To donate, or verify my claims, visit www.mifop.com or www.mifop.com and click on fundraising.
Also, you can call the MI FOP at (517) 367-8000 or TOLL FREE 1-888-367-6424.

this could be a scam network; they call to ask for money for the retired police...Please check them out.

January 29th, 2010 - MI

Asked caller how he got the number and then all of a sudden he claimed he couldn't hear what I was saying.

January 28th, 2010 jim

January 28th, 2010 Jim

I was away when this call came to my home and no message was left. FOP means Fraternal Order of Police. Must be doing fund-raising.

January 27th, 2010 g.b. MI

caller claimed to be representing Fraternal Order of Police....hung up without comment when i told him i did not want to be "marketed" as the caller id showed CTC Marketing.....anyone know how i am getting calls that show absolutely nothing on the caller id? rings 4 times and appears nowhere on the ID after they hang up, shows "calling" while ringing.

January 19th, 2010 J MI

Don't you love it when you get a call and they won't even talk to your machine.

January 18th, 2010 Carrie MI

This call was reportedly from Walmart and I was entered by a friend or family member. I won a FREE all inclusive trip to Cancun and Orlando...and if I accepted the offer another trip to Cancun would be given as a bonus!! all for the sum of $299 per person.
