They called at 8:31 pm last night with no message. I don't like companies who waste my time.
Received a call 6/13/11. I did not pick up the phone. Caller hung up before the fourth ring. (This has happened before.)
They called at 9:30 PM, I didn't answer.
Is there no regard for the Do Not Call list? I get solicitation calls all day and night on my business line. So annoying. 253 275 3619 and anotther 866 # that shows as MRS BPO LLC. Egads! What does it take?
WA FOP has been calling at least once a week, if not every other day from various phone numbers. Like many of these reports, we've been called at all hours of the night and they never leave a message (we don't answer anymore).
I asked last year to be removed from their list. Alas.
You'd think the 'real' FOP would want to investigate if CFC is using their organization in such a way! I wrote the FOP on their website to give them the info.
If they're telemarketers, they should be turned in against the 'Do Not Call' policy. That might be my next step.
Our phone is on the do not call lists, but we still get a ton of calls. I've asked to be removed from a bunch of these, but to no avail. Four years later and numerous re-attempts to 'Do Not Call' still appear to be worthless.
Although my caller ID says "WA FOP", the call I got this morning was actually from "Corporations For Character, LC"
For Washington Secretary of State's report on WA FOP see
and on Corporations For Character, LC, see
which says that CFC raised $651,809 in contributions, of which only $196,270 (31%) went to CFC's charity clients in 2009.
According to the Washington Secretary of State, the WA FOP "devoted 0% of its total expenses to program services during ".

I got a call from this # at 9:20 AM 11-09-10, yesterday 206-866-1925, and last week 253-839-4783 from the same company working for the police to get donation and wanted me to give money to them. I got robbed 3-17-09 and told the police and they didn't take finger prints or did anything so why should I donate to them any more like i did in the past. Not after this...
Also, they are using many other phone numbers calling me because I told them I would in the past to remind me I have to give to them. So, these people will also get some % of money too and not just for the police but for them too. SORRY!!!! NO NO NO MORE FOR YOU!!!
Annoyed in WA
Please stop calling this line. It is for emergencies only. Thank you!
These people call every single night between 8:30-9:00 p.m. I have to be up at 3:00 a.m. and I am so fed up with these late calls that wake me up each night. I do not answer and they don't leave a message.
The call almost daily. Never leave a message.
Received a call at about 7:45 p.m. asking for a specific person. When I said, "May I tell -------- what this is about?" the caller simply hung up. Pretty rude for an organization that wants you to donate to them, don't you think?
Searched the number and found this forum.
got a call from this number at 915pm. WTF. did not answer and no message was left
These guys keep asking for Sam who doesn't live at my house. Wonder if the WA State Attorney General can help?
This number keeps calling me also, 253-275-3619 I always get this call around 8pm and 9pm that is just too late for me cuz I am snoozing
I am on the National Do Not Call Registry...This is the 3rd time they have called since I got my phone last month, and I do not answer as their Caller ID isn't family. This time they will be reported. And for those of you willing to make donations...do it to your local police guild
I got this call many many times and this is s****y! i don't really know the true but they can't do fund raising like this, negative effect! i really made a mistake by donating them (work act, bad result). They keep stocking us from there on.
Called around 8:30pm - no message left.
The Man of the House
This guy calls at 8:45 at night, sounding all chipper, asking for "the lady of the house..." I reminded him what time it was, and further informed him she wasn't available... He didn't waste his time trying to try to soften my tone; he hung up.
David in Issy-town
Called at 20:38hrs asking to talk to the lady of the house. Sounds like a scam to me.
Washington State Fraternal Order of Police is a front organization for a large scam operation. Ask your local law enforcement people about it; they've either never heard of it; or they're aware of this scam, and will let you know that it's a scam.
There are several well-known law enforcement support organizations, but this is NOT one of them. WA FOP is nothing more than a scam to get money, while making citizens think they're supporting law enforcement.
2.09.10 - called @ 8:54pm. Did not answer. No ID. No message.
The gentleman asked for Conrado! Didn't mention FOP at all.
