I got a call today from this number. It was a robo-voice looking for money for National Police and Troopers Association. I asked for website and they gave me www.nptadonations.org. I looked it up and the donations are not tax deductable, and this is actually part of the IUPA - International Union of Police Associations. The IUPA would not disclose to Charity BBB website - RED FLAG!! I came across an article that said in 2012 they raised $8.2 million, and $7.7 million was used to pay fundraisers. Of the remaining $500K, only $35K was used for scholarships etc. and rest was used by the union for negotiations. MAJOR SCAM!! I ALWAYS ASK FOR THEIR WEBSITE BEFORE I DONATE AND THEN I LOOK THEM UP ON CHARITY BBB AT http://give.org/charity-reviews/national/ AND CHARITY NAVIGATOR AT http://www.charitynavigator.org/. These sites can help you see their financials including how much goes to the program, fundraising costs, and what the CEO earns. Here is the article http://www.newtoseattle.com/2013/06/26/police-charity-ranks-among-the-scuzziest-trolling-in-seattle/
