Rang twice. Hung up immediately when I picked up.

This appears to be one of many numbers used by illegitimate companies asking for donations to various police organizations, usually "Texas State" something-or-other.

I personally know an ex-Trooper who said these calls are not legitimate, and there are no organizations authorized to solicit donations on behalf of any police organizations.

I saw a response related to another of these bogus numbers that suggested requesting the organization's financials from the caller (if you ever speak live to someone), and that stops them from calling.

Caller I.D. showed Texas State. When I answered, no one responded. There was a clicking noise.

Telemarketer represented himself as Texas State Troopers Assoc. I get a call every year although I always request never to be called again.

This is a San Antonio number, and probably a political donnations because my number is on the "do-not-call-list". The caller claims that political donnations and charities don't have to honor the "do-not-call" list...

Called at 7pm on a Friday of a 3 day weekend. Answered, no on there. Likely for donations to Texas State Trooper Assoc - a scam group, not associated with any state agency and funds do not go to any law enforcement purpose. State shut them down once, but they're back.

Hung up on answering. Return call resulted in messagee "I'm sorry, your number cannot be completed as dialed." Really pretty pointless is seems.

Recieved a call from this number well after 8 pm..I only use my phone for my computer...All friends have my cell# Did not know # on my caller ID, so didn't answer, but they left no message.
This needs to be check out or pull the plug on this # so people that want to rest after a hard days work can.

Got a call from this number tonight for the first time. Caller ID read "TX." I had been receiving calls from 210-223-5021 with "Texas State" on caller ID. They did not leave a message either. I reported the number through the National Do Not Call web site. I do not answer calls I do not recognize any more do to possible phishing and scams. I'll be reporting this also.

I got two calls from this number on Monday. Thought it was a wrong number from state prison. They don't let you call back in. Got another one tonight at 8:50 pm. You gotta be kidding.

It is probably a telemarketing firm asking for donations for the State Trooper fund; it is that time of year again! They are not a State Agency.

We received a call from that number tonight and it said the same thing. Texas State. I picked up and nobody was on the other end. I will be reporting this number to local authorities.

Texas State appeared on caller i.d. on 4/19 at 6:06. If it's a State Agency, it would be closed at that hour, don't ya think?
