Call reportedly from "NJ Police Officers Foundation" Male caller stated they were raising money for police vests and support of families of injured officers. When asked what the administrative cost percentage was, the reply was NJ Law requires us to tell you that at least 10% on moneys collected would go to the charity.

The AG reports (www.nj.gov/oag/ca/charity/inquired/2011/311_411/NJPolice.pdf) that only 19% "Program Expenses" and 0% paid to "Affiliated Charities" which means that they had an at least 81$ admin overhead. That means that at least 81 cents out of every dollar collected in going into somebody's pocket, not towards the intended charitable cause. In other words IT'S A SCAM!
