These are scammers that try to get money for themselves (and donate less than 1% to some police organization).

They ask for a name, and when you ask to be removed, they will immediately hang up.

Fraternal Order Police is a FAKE, they are scammers. They don't even have a single link with Police Depts. The worst thing you could do is giving them a play to do. If theu call it's because they want talk to you or catch you if you take the call. SIMPLY don't answer them and report every single call to "DO-NOT-CALL". I've been traking theiR calls for more then 2 years. I have about 20 different phone numbers from FOP with different area codes. I would like to get a website where everyone can expose their numbers. There you go...

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!

Sincerely,

Rev. James

I too had yet another phone call today, let it go to answering machine, no message as usual. So, I decided to look at the history on caller id - and sure enough all these numbers have shown up with either Frat Ord Police or TX FOP, not even sure where some of these area codes are from: 281-763-7522 / 281-984-2218 / 281-763-7527 / 469-718-0642 / 469-718-0659 / 304-295-1898 / 972-769-5168 / 630-505-3008. Good Grief - Enough is Enough! Glad I found this site....

The man called and said he only needed a few minutes to give his info and i didn't have to give anything. I told him good because we had none to give. he went through his bit and asked me to donate. I said no and he said he understood, but I could could post date the donation. I had to say no 3 or 4 times before he hung up. I think he was trying to get me to say the word 'yes' in some way so he could use the recording of the word to prove I said I'd donate.

I see this "SCAM" is in business again. This is the 3rd year I've been contacted by them. Each time I call my local police department. And each time they tell me that they have gotten or will get a court order to shut them down. The police tell me that the "scam artists" go on to set up a new shop and get a new number each time. The police also say, it's citizens reporting to them that alerts them that the "scam" is back in action.

This number is from the Texas Fraternal Order of Police. I told the telemarketer NOT to call me again then I called the number back. They have options to remove your number from their call list. Whether it works, I don't know but it's worth a try.

This phone number is calling to do fund raising for the Texas State 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.texasfop.com, you can contact them there with any questions or requests.
The FOP is doing a lot of really great things for Texas police officers and the people that call are trying to help them raise money so they can do even more good.

I just got this call and caller ID said: FRAT ORD POLICE (281) 984-2218 asking for 10.00 in donation to help police officer's family... He asked for my husbands first name. I noticed there was a pause when I would ask a question.. I noticed this twice.. after the second pause, I hung up. I truly believe this is a scam... that is what my gut feeling told me....

Give to your local benevolence fund, where 100% of your donation goes to help families.

This is a telemarketer and they typically keep upwards of 60% of what they collect from you.

This is a nonprofit organization. They raise money for local police departments in Texas. I have called the number back, and received an answering machine. If you listen long enough, there is the option to have your number added to their DNC list. There is also an option to add any other phone numbers that you do not want them to call. With this in mind, there are also many scams going around about this type of thing. The only way that I will donate to my local police department/Texas Troopers Association is in person. In this day and age, my moto is "Trust no one".

just got a call from FRAT ORD POLICE from 281-984-2218. it is best not to answer because some of these number in and around Houston, Texas are calling to get use of your number for their own personal use and can only get the access when you answer. they did it to my parent and ended up with hundreds of dollars in phone calls from all over the united states and oversea charged to their phone number. they had a hard time getting the phone company to remove these charges. it was a long drawn out process and even bigger hassle and headache. so please beware of the scams these people are pulling on people unknowingly.

This is what the BBB have to state about the Texas State Fraternal Order of Police:

Additional Information about TEXAS STATE LODGE FRATERNAL ORDER OF POLICE

Attorney General of Texas (November 7,2007)
Consumer Alert: Give Wisely To Organizations Claiming To Benefit Public Safety Officers

Before donating to an organization that claims to represent law enforcement, persons should ask questions and check the facts. Donations to groups with the words "police," "law enforcement," or "trooper" in their names may not actually benefit real peace officers or their families. Two common types of organizations can serve law enforcement. The first are legitimate charities, such as police benevolent societies. These charitable organizations might honor outstanding officers with an annual gala or raise money to provide scholarships for the children of wounded or fallen officers. However, when an unknown caller solicits donations for a peace officers' charity, persons need to ask questions before they open their wallets.

Persons who want to donate funds to law enforcement charities should know how the organization will spend their money - and whether it will actually benefit any peace officers.

A second type of law enforcement organization is a non-profit professional association or labor union. Their membership is usually comprised of dues-paying peace officers who rely on the association for professional insurance, legal counsel, and representation before city, county, or state officials. These associations typically are governed by an elected board of directors that includes actual licensed peace officers. Non-executive board members ordinarily receive no compensation, so many organizations rely on a professional staff to administer day-to-day operations at the association.

Though many of these organizations legitimately represent actual peace officers and their interests, they are not charities. Because they do not serve a charitable purpose, donations to these organizations are not deductible for federal income tax purpose. For the same reason, it is entirely lawful for a law enforcement association to use donations to pay for administrative expenses, provided they do not mislead prospective donors about how contributions will be spent.

To separate organizations that actually serve or represent peace officers from those that may not, it helps to examine the size of an organization's membership, the composition of its governing board, its history, its affiliations, and the organization's willingness to disclose how it spends its resources.

While some organizations rely largely on membership dues to fund their operations, others solicit contributions by telephone and mail. Unfortunately, a few organizations that claim to represent law enforcement may not actually spend donors' contributions on items that directly help peace officers.
Persons who are solicited for donations by a purported law enforcement association need to ask tough questions before contributing to any non-profit organization. If the solicitation is made by telephone, prospective donors should take their time and ask for more information. Consumers should ask whether solicitors are volunteers or paid telemarketers. If a solicitor claims that a state or local police department has authorized the solicitation or will somehow benefit from a contribution, citizens should contact the local police department to determine whether the caller's claim is accurate.

To understand how their contribution will be used, prospective donors should ask the organization to provide a written comparison of how much donated revenue goes to telemarketing or lobbying expenses and how much directly benefits peace officers or their families.

This is just the latest attempt of the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) to scam donations from the public. These are the numbers they have used to call me in the past few years. I'm sure there are more or they will find more. Do not talk to them. They will try to make you feel obligated to donate. They call all the time. DO NOT ANSWER THEM. IGNORE THEM. REPORT THEM TO THE BBB. It's pure harassment.

Many times these phone calls are terminated before you answer. Their telemarketing machines do this regardless if you answer or not. The objective for many of these telemarketers is to get name and/or number to show up on your caller ID. If those numbers show up on your caller ID, then they (telemarketing group) are paid small amount of money (it is small, but multiply that times 10,000 calls a day and you have a business). The process is called DIP charges and they are paid by the local carrier to a third party vendor who maintains some control over 911 databases and SS7 switches. They make deals with these telemarketing companies to call these phone numbers in order to get paid. The third party vendors get paid and they pay these telemarketing companies in order to offset the telemarketers' costs. But here is the clincher, there are companies that are set up to do nothing but call your number and hang up and they get paid for it. The phone companies can't stop it because they don't get dinged on the duration of the call, but if the call went through with caller name or number on it. Major cities around the nation are set up with these bogus companies that do this. It is legal for now and you and I pay for it to maintain the 911 databases. Some idiots have found a loophole and exploit it, thus raising our cost.

Lastly, if it is an 800 number or so (or if they ask you to call back an 800 number) then the telemarketer may be getting paid twice. The 800 numbers may go to a lata where long distance termination is higher than usual. Even though these calls terminated in a high dollar lata, most likely it is being shipped by VOIP to another area.

Now YOU know. We can make this country great again. Stop these thieves.

I have gotten four different numbers that show Frat. Order of Police when I search online. This is the most aggressive telemarketing group I've ever seen - how many other numbers do they use? Why don't they display their name when they call - perhaps because they don't want you to know you're about to get a telemarketing call and maybe you'll answer??

The Fraternal Order of Police is a telemarketer scam outfit. The organization itself may be perfectly fine. But, the financial collection side of their non-profit organization is unscrupulous. They call, act like your buddy and then ask how much you can write a check for? Outrageous! They've been doing this for years from phone numbers with which the folks have become familiar. This is a new one for me. I'm more than happy to put it on my block list and "silent" ring tone file.
