I DIDN'T RECOGNIZE THE NUMBER SO I TOLD THEM THAT I WAS NOT HOME (THINKING IT WAS A TELEMARKETER). THEY WERE VERY RUDE AND SAID THEY WOULD CALL BACK--INTERRUPTING ME AS I WAS ASKING WHO WAS CALLING. VERY, VERY, VERY RUDE AND CANNOT BELIEVE THAT THIS ORGANIZATION IS RELATED TO POLICE! THEY CAN REST ASSURED THAT I WILL NEVER, NEVER, NEVER GIVE ANY MONETARY DONATIONS TO THEM AFTER THESE RUDE CALLS AND COMMENTS THAT I HAVE READ.
Southern States Police Association. They call every morning aound 8:30, but they never say anything when I answer. I also get the "Call back later" message when I have tried to call them back to complain. Their website (https://www.sspba.org/index.htm) has a "Do not call" registration, so we'll see if it works. Here is the contact info from their website:
P.O. Box 1898
McDonough, GA 30253
I got so irritated with all these crap calls I downloaded a call zapper piece of software from Phonetray.com. So far its working very well. It records all call numbers and you can add them to a hit list to have the call dropped after one ring. You'll need an old style dial up modem which is then attached to an ordinary phone line.
to get OFF the list, call 678-289-5242
- be nice to her, SHE'S not making the CALLS!
They're located at 4518 N. Henry Blvd, Stockbridge, GA

I just got a call from Southern States, but it was a different number - 910-689-1920
. If you go to the site of www.sspba.org you can remove your number from the call list. They are the Southern States Police Benevolent Society.
Southern States Police Benevolent Association. Spam call. Automated message left different callback number on voice mail: 678-289-5246
This number started showing up soon after a private investigator from Georgia was spotted, parked in our neighborhood, and was verified by the police. I wonder if this is a private investigators number.I mean... why the need for a voice changer?
Why theres never an answer when you call back? Creepy!
I don't want calls from this number. I'm tired of answering my phone at 830 am and when I call them they never answer.
same thing as the others, you pick up the phone they hang up. No one there, the caller ID says Southern States, the area code relates to Atlanta Georgia. when you call the number back you receive the message call back

If this is indeed a law enforcement related agency of ANY kind, nice message they're sending on obeying the law.
Interesting to hear from others: Have you recently had an incident where you gave your phone to the law and then this started happening within days after?
In other words, are our most vulnerable of times being still further violated well into the future?
Or is this just a coincidence?
Yeah Right May 22nd, 2007
thanks to the link i found on who called us i found where you could have your number removed from their calling list. they say they do not have to adhere to do not call because they are non profit. i am pretty sure they are legit but they call way too much. hope it works.
The link above is very useful: you can fill out a request to have your name removed from their list. I hope it works!

Same experience as the others...
The message left on my machine said to call back @ 1-678-289-5246
or see their website, www.sspba.org. They
can all piss up a rope.

Tony is right...if you take the time to call them and be polite, they are really pleasant to deal with. Time will tell if they honor their word about removing me from the list....
Roadrunner Feb 27th, 2007
I get calls from them all the time but is either a recording or no one on the line.
I'm going to try the 800 # That tony posted
ext. 526 and they will remove you from their list
I did not answer since I did not recognize the number
Same with me. When I answered, they hung up. Tried to call back and got Call Back Later in a computer voice.
Female caller asked for my husband by name; told them he was unavaiable; they said "ok" and hung up.
answered with out anyone on the line, called back and got the same voice that states to call back.
( I WISH THEY WOULD STOP CALLING MY CELL PHONE !!!! )
got call today 02-06-07 @ 5:00pm est
We didn't answer the number because we weren't aware of the caller. When we called it back, a digital voice replied "Please Call Later."
They call everyday, three times a day from 770-302-0870 and no one speaks when you answer. Call number back and you get creepy "call back later" Number look-up shows Jonesboro, GA
We have received dozens of calls from "southern states". They always hang up when you answer. One time they talked to my wife and asked her for money which she did not give.
Dennis Ward Feb 02nd, 2007
I wasn't sure who it was....they have called numerous times..thanks for the responses
They are Southern States Police Benevolent Association. Very rude and agressive telemarketers that try to hide their purpose of calling untill they have your information and refuse to place people on do not call. Report them.
repeated calls with hang up when answered. Returned call and message says "call back later"

I have tried to block this number and have not been able to do it. Any suggestions?
I get calls from this number also. Four are on my caller id ranging from early January to today 1/29/07. I have never called the number back but I have never been able to tell what it is. ID says Southern States.

I have gotten calls from this number for a few years. Caller ID says Southern States. They hang up when I answer and when I call the number I get a message in a deep, creepy, artificial-sounding voice that says "call back." My area code is 39183. Today's date is 1/26/07 at 6:45 p.m. Central time.
I cancelled my land line a week ago for other reasons and will be using a cell phone from now on. If I get any more calls from this number on my cell phone, I will be creeped out for sure and I will post it on this website. I wish somebody could get to the bottom of this.
Gena Hopkins Jan 26th, 2007
Called back; All I got was a message - "Please call again later"
This number calls on a regular basis. No one responds when the call is answered. When the number is called back there is a message that says "call back".
