I got a call a few weeks ago from Police Org asking for donations. I NEVER give money out over the phone so I asked them to mail me something and I would look into whether I could donate money. I got their mailer today and it is tied to the website above. Its all very very busy but they seem like they do good work. I know there are a few people on here that are associated with law enforcement. So I am asking if they know anything about this organization? Their official name it The Police Protective Fund.
Truman be ware.
There was a scam like this going on like this about a decade ago that the Berwyn Life newspaper exposed. People would call claiming to be members of the Berwyn police or fire department would call asking for donations to a fund.
It turns out these guys were a scam group in Denver. I actually donated a couple of times until I read the Life story. When I got a call after the Life story, the guy on the line claimed to work for the Berwyn Fire Department.
I asked him who Frank Marzullo was. He responded that he didn't know. When I told him who Frank Marzullo was, he claimed he was just working for a company that was soliciting donations. I then asked why when he called he claimed to work for the Berwyn FIre Department. Then I asked where he was calling from and he said Denver.
I then hung up the phone.
I don't know if this is a legitimate organization or not. But, there was a scam like this about a decade ago.
