claims from Jersey City Police Dept. calling Westwood??
Yup...called and left no message this morning but "hello, hello" I answer every cop organization the same way when they call: Sorry, but I gave a cop 15 years of my life and he left me for someone half my age. I think I've paid my dues there! Then I hang up :-)Doesn't do a bit of good, but man it feels good!
Calls saying they are collecting for NJ Policemens Asso. I was told the the Asso. does not collect by phone
I get many calls from this number too. I now don't pick up the phone unless I know who is calling me. If the call is important from family, doctors or other they would leave a message charities don't leave messages.
THIS NUMBER 201-204-1294 IS A KNOWN SCAM. DO NOT GIVE THEM ANY INFORMATION. THEY ARE ASKING FOR MONEY. THIS IS A ILLEGAL, BOGUS, **** ORG. SCAM, SCAM, SCAM.
aholes bothering u for money. sucks!
This number showed up as one of my "Missed Calls" while I was away from home, but left no message. I'm glad to find out it's a scam.
Guy just called my house and I answered it before I realized who it was. I lied and told him my brother-in-law is a Jersey City police officer and he handles all my donations. He sounded a bit nervous then hung up as I was saying thanks anyway!
Call from 201-204-1294 while I was out. The caller name is "New Jersey". No message.I have call intercept which means that this call shoulld have been automatically cut off!
I informed this guy he may want to google the number he is calling from so he not continue to look stupid. He claimed he did not know the number he was calling from?!?! Anyway, thanks for the info
This is not the Police Department calling you for donations. It is a professional fundraiser calling on behalf of a police union or association. The Paid fundraiser can take as much as 99% of your donation. Then they use that 99% to call you again and again and again for more donations that will do no good for your Police Department or anyone else for that matter. Your best bet is to hang up the phone and if you want to give to the police then call your local police department by getting their number out of the phone book. Plenty of info about scams like this one at http://www.pfcl.org/
Also got a call from them... big fundraising operation.... on 11% goes to charity.. they have a gazillion charities that they call for... wow..
Who is the owner?
They called my parent's house asking for me and wouldn't leave a msg. I called the number from my cell and he didnt even ask for my name before going in for the sell. I said I couldn't do anything at this time and asked to take my parent's number of this list he just said 'ok' and went quite. It sounds odd.
call from a man with deep voice claiming to be from the police department. I said that it was very late to be calling (8.30pm) to which he replied, "no disrespect, just doing my job, will call another time"and he knew my name.
call from 201-204-1294 10:32 am 3-16-11 you say hello no answer and they hang up my ID said jersey city new jersey
Asked them to send me the info to look over so I could decide on an amount, and the guy told me "that's not how it works" .....lol and I needed to decide NOW!
Just got a call from this number a few minutes ago. Said to me that he works for the NJ Police Dept. Tried to get me to buy a police support sticker for my car costing 50, 65, or 75 dollars. Said he would send the sticker to my house with the amount that I wanted to pay. When I asked if they had a website he stuttered and could not answer me. I hung up.
caller is a fraud------
I called my local p.d. they checked into it ,they do make calls asking for monies so the can help the police by vest etc.BUT STAY AWAY FROM BECAUSE VERY VERY LITTLE MONIES GOES TO THEM FOR VEST ETC. WHO EVER CALLS GETS PAID FOR DOING THIS, SO THEY CAN CALL JUST HAND UP AND KEEP YOUR MONEY AND CHARGE CARDS TO YOURSELF DON.T GIVE ANYTHING UNLESS YOU JUST DON'T CARE. MOST P.D. DO ASK FOR DONATIONS BUT BY MAIL SO YOU HAVE THAT INFO AND YOU CAN THEN CALL YOUR LOCAL TO VERIFY
The Jersey City Police Department has a web site that leads to a JCPD Foundation. They specifically say that neither their foundation, nor the JCPD will ever call anyone for donations. They go on to say that if you do get a call of solicitation, to contact their Internal Affairs Dept. Knowing the area, this call is coming quite far from any police stations located in JC. It's definately a scam! All I received was a hang up!
2012041294did not leave message.
calls saying he works for New Jersey Police Dept. collecting Donations its a Scam
