Call received about 4 PM. Answered. Asked who's calling and regarding what, said he was 'Ben', but no further info offered. Proceed to insist I was someone I wasn't, rudely claimed I was being 'evasive' and he would 'call back' and he hung up quickly before I could say put me on the do not call list. I called back to find out the ID of this rude personage and got a recording. The recording said, "This is the Maryland Coalition of Police" automated information system. They are calling for donations. Not a very good way to run a 'charity'. More like a shake down racket. Seems they are operating under various company names such as 'police protection', misrepresenting themselves, and unfortunately the real police receive little to nothing collected. Shameful!

No answer when i picked it up!
Man called himself Joe. Wouldn't give a full name or a company name. Or tell me what the call was about.
Oh -- and called me at 8:13 AM and when I said something about it he replied, "Hey, it's early for me too."
Called and wanted me to make a donation to a program that allows the police to attend miltarty-type training. He wanted me to know it's for the kids. I could hear operators in the background collecting credit card numbers. I'm pretty sure I read elsewhere that this place is not really affiliated with the police.
Don't know who it was. A lot of background noise and a man was on the phone. I hung up and they didn't call back.
