I got a call from them last night, from 323-208-3952
. I am also on the Do Not Call registry; unfortunately, charitable organizations, political organizations, telephone surveyors, and other such nuisances, are exempt under the law-- because they are not telemarketers. My phone is also unlisted. Telephone canvassers do not use telephone directories, they just call every number in the area they want to cover (that's why their call centers are sometimes called "boiler rooms"). When I do not recognize the caller ID displayed, I usually answer (just in case), but am prepared to dismiss the caller. The rep from LA FOP asked for the lady of the house. When I told him I live alone, he started in with his pitch: "The police keep you safe, but you probably do not think of us." I Googled on LA FOP FOUND, found this page, and that Los Angeles and Louisiana both have a Fraternal Order of Police that go by LA FOP FOUND.
