I received a telephone call on 11-04-09 at 7:30 pm from a woman who said she was representing the "Fairfax County Professional Fire Fighters & Paramedics." The telephone number that showed on my phone was 1-703-656-9988. She was soliciting a donation. I told her that I do not make any financial commitments over the telephone and that, if her organization would send me something in writing, I may consider it. She hung up.Looking on the internet, I am unable to find any legitimate company associated with this number. Therefore, I believe it to be a scam telephone call.If everybody would do this, calls from these kind of telemarketers would stop.
I get calls from this number every so often. I don't pick up, and they never leave a message.
