Solicitation Call from Colorado FOP

The call was from Out of Area

Caller: Hello, Mrs. O.?

Me: Yes, hello?

Caller: Hello, Mrs. O., my name is S.M., and I work directly for the Colorado State Fraternal Order of Police ...

Me: No you don't. Goodbye.


It's possible the guy really did work for the Colorado FOP, as they do have a call center, which is surprising given the warnings from sheriff's departments and police officers to "never give money to people over the phone, period." That quote was from an officer warning the public after the Colorado State FOP itself was discovered possibly engaging in "charitable fraud" a year ago.

So if he was legit, I hope he understands and respects the defensiveness of the public to his calls.
