The calling room in Rockledge for FOP District 7 HAS BEEN SHUT DOWN!! The in house problem answer that was given was Paper-work not submiitted! THAT WAS 3 weeks ago!! What in Hyades is going on!! maybe the Chinese know..because Fla. Today and other media sources can not figure it out...or are afraid!

Tracked down the source of these calls harassing my mother's home number....but asking for me. They are the Brevard County Fraternal Order of Police. They hang up right away if the person they are asking for isn't home so that you can't ask to be put on their "DO NOT CALL LIST". Call this number in Tallahasse at FOP, to be removed from their list: 850-656-9881. Express your extreme displeasure at this treatment and intrusion....tell Joy, I say, "Hi".

Caller: Brevard County Fraternal Order of Pollice
Call Type: Non-profit Organization

Unwanted Calls

I received a call from this # last night they said they were from the Fraternal Order of Police Volusia County and tried to intimidate me, as I began to ask why the Caller ID said Brevard County the guy began to get irritated and very rude. Why would the Fraternal Order Of Police Allow this type of abuse to continue??

They started calling a couple of weeks ago. They called last week too. They don't answer when I pick up. They are a bunch of cowards. Speak or don't call.., you idiots. I'm reporting you to the Chamber of Commerce of Melbourne and the Federal Bureau of Investigations. I am on the Federal Do Not Call List and they are breaking the law and I won't stand for that and neither should anybody.

I do not know why Brevard County would be calling me. I have told these callers every time they call I do not have funds to donate. I think next time they call I will ask them for a donation to me so I can keep my phone active so I can receive their calls.

Just got a call from the "Citrus County Fraternal Order of Police" but the ID said Brevard County. I had seen the TV news stories the others mentioned below about the "FOP" calls being fraudulent and keeping the money for themselves, so I refused to donate anything over the phone. As a matter of curiosity, I said I would consider looking over anything received in the mail. She read back my address which she apparently got from the phone book and was unable to pronounce the town I live in.

These calls are continuing despite being told to take us off their call list. Told Stacy to take me off the list - she continued to talk - stating that they were allowed to call because they were not solicitors ... We used an air horn and her conversation continued without skipping a beat ... therefore, I am sure it was a recorded message. We get about 3 calls from various numbers every day and evening ... PLEASE MAKE THEM STOP! WHAT CAN I DO TO MAKE THEM STOP? Other Suspicious Numbers: (cell phone numbers:) 407-780-5539; 407-780-5539; 407-574-0871; (Brevard County Number:) 321-635-8388 HOW CAN I GET THEM TO STOP THESE HARASSING CALLS??? We re on the Do Not Registry ... but what good does that do? I keep filing complaints and the calls keep coming!

Phone says Brevard County ...above list shows Seminole COunty. Something fishy. I can't believe anyone would donate to anyone over the phone. Just a scam in most cases to get your credit card information

Even assuming a charity is placing its calls from in-house, it should still maintain its own no-call list. Same goes for a commercial fundraiser hired by a charity, which by FTC opinion (and mine) should not be totally exempt from national DNC.

You people are idiots. You don't know what you are talking about and it would do a great deal of good to actually do some research. They do not use any telemarketing company and actually do everything themselves. The guy who said the newspaper and tv did a specific article about the "scam" is the biggest idiot of them all. The reason the FOP has been around for so long is because they aren't a scam. This is further supported by the fact that the do not call registry doesn't apply to them, only for telemarketing companies. So the next time you people want to come trash talk a good organization, I fully welcome you to do so but ONLY after you have educated yourself on it. You only come across as idiotic and I hope none of these good people decide not to help out because of your erroneous slander.

From what I've read on similiar sites, this is a fundraising telemarketer for FOP. I live in the next county from Brevard and have seen news stories on them. NEVER EVER give a donation to these groups. They keep most of what you give to pay themselves. ALWAYS contact charities directly. One thing I do that makes me feel a little better is I save the number in my phones "phonebook" with any ID I decide fits.
This group is now FOP Fake Fundrazr. At least I'm prepared for the call. If they are legit, you would be able to go to a website and have your number removed.

Several calls have come in from this location, some quite late in the evening. No message is ever left. I do not pick up since it appears to be a solicitation coming inon a Do Not Call phone line.

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. revjames@pfcl.org www.badgefraud.org

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 received 2 calls from that number yesterday and each time i picked up they hung up. I am sorry but that does not seem right. If it is a fund raising deal they did not ask for anything all i heard was a click. If this keeps up i am going to the authorities with it.

These people have called over and over with their automatic dialing machine. They are phony Fraternal Order of Police fund raisers who give next to nothing to police or their families. They just barely fill the legal requirements. They are scam artists who are taking advantage of people's good will. Both the newspaper and local TV Reporters have done stories on this specific scam. DON'T REWARD THEM!!!! You can be pretty sure that people calling and asking for money should be looked at with great skepticism.

i feel reasonable certain it was the FOP as there was not any person that responded (nor automated response). This is the technique used by FOP solicition contractor to find out if anyone is home or if this number is a valid phone number. These freaking organizations are getting real creative and super sneaky to use called ID as Brevard County - an actual county in FL. I have heard if you rapidly push the '#' key it confuses the automated calling system and it cannot id your phone number for future use. Suggest reporting the misleading use of 'Brevard County' as Caller ID to Brevard County officals.

The Caller ID shows "Brevard County." This is VERY dishonest, and I intend to report it as such to the appropriate state and federal authorities.
