i get a call from that number and the caller ID saying 'Kensington MD' and they never leave a message. SOooooooOOO irritating!!!
Don't ever give these people information over the phone!!!
I am soooooooo sick and tired of these ignorant, arrogant crooks!!!! They call constantly, but from different numbers each time. They try to scam you by telling you "oh, you've donated to us in the past so please do it again." If you say you cannot donate, they make threats, say they will send someone to your home (in a threatening way, they call you horrible names, and they tell you that police will not come to help you if you need assistance in the future. Someone please put an end to these harassing calls!!! If someone threatened my grandmom they way these thugs do, I am sure she would cave in and send tons of money. How SICK these people say the money is used to help officers killed in the line of duty. SCUM! Pure, absolute scum.

I received a phone call from (301) 881-0606, today around 2:00 PM. Caller ID said "Police Pro Fund," and he was asking for Mrs. Davis I told him he had the wrong number. He then asked if I would be willing to contribute to the police fund, I told him I was not interested and hung up the phone. The people are bunch of no good people trying to collect money on behalf of the Maryland Police. Don't fall for their trap.
Just got a call from them. Funny thing is, as soon as I answered, my cat stuck his claw in my back.
They probably thought I was being murdered. Serves them right.
Thanks all for the posts. These guys call me regularly. I let them go to the machine. I have a policy where I NEVER give money to anyone who calls me at home asking for it..... ever. Once you give them money, you're on the sucker list for life.
Lets go I'm tired of this Sh*t
This bamma lives some where on Sugarbush Lane in Montgomery County, MD. Property estimated valued @ 892k I say let us organized a van pool and go there and whip his azz so he will need some real Police Protection!
Washington is western MD and DC is not MD
I got the same call today. Why real police don't take an action about it?
I get calls several times a day. They never leave a message.
I just pick up the phone and put it down. Good way to waste their time and time is money to them.
Want donations. Never leave a message. H"ow can these people do this when our number is on the "do not call list"?
Got a call from this number (301-881-0606) today Saturday 3 March at 11:31am caller ID only showed "PPF: I didn't pick up because I had no idea what PPF was. Apparently it is the "Police Protection Fund" scam thing. I never pick up those type of calls anyway.Heck I rarely answer the phone live for any call now.
Mom at work
Caller ID: PPF
Phone is listed with an "D" is front of the last name. When callers say that incorrect last name, I know it's from a phone list.
1. I have an unlisted number 2. I have a "D" in front of last name to identify people who call as if we are long lost friends.
When I told the caller that's not my name. He rudely said, "Yes you are!" then hung up. lol for social graces. I go to work to pay my bills YOU make phone calls during the day to scam people! Buy some "class" with your scam money. I'm not a Housewife of _____ .
Caller ID says "The Pol Protect" and there is no one one the line, no computer hookup, etc. Happens about 3 PM every day. Area code 301 is for Western Maryland, Suburban Washington D. C. area of Maryland. Why can't these calls be stopped?
They are raising money for police's families killed in action. The caller ID says police protection.
They guy that called was very rude, I told them to take us off the call list.
They refuse to take my number off their list like I have asked them too hundreds of times. So I started calling them back and leaving the phone on the table. So far they have been answering when I call. I'm going to continue to do things like blowing my whistle in the phone when I see it is them on my caller ID. Today I kept tapping the phone on the table. They called 3 times in a row.
I received call from this number several times and the caller was very rude.
I receive almost daily calls on my landline from this number that I do not answer. No one leaves a message but it has become most annoying.
Just got a call. They call all the time and say if they can send out the decals like they did last year. I told them I don't do solicitations over the phone and would need to see something in writing before I decide anything. They said they can't do that and this would just be like last year. I told them I didn't do anything last year and that they just bought a list of names and I must have sweared because they said they don't buy lists and they don't appreciate my swearing..."particularly on a recorded call" which they had failed to mention until that point and then they hung up. Bottom line....swear at them and they will hang up!
Today is the third time we have received a call from this number saying they are collecting money on behalf of police officers who died while on duty for their family and he was quite insistent that i give him my cheque details and routing number or pay by credit card over the phone and when I insisted that i have once donated by mail after receiving an envelope from the police he went on and on about how there is delay in receiving mail because of Christmas. He is rude, irritated and knew my name and address. How is this happening?
But does this really work, or do they just call you more often?
Another lil ol' lady on a fixed income
These people call and harass you, trying to force you to make a donation. When you refuse they get nasty. I would never donate to them if I had a million bucks - which I don't lols. They need to be shut down, because it could cause legitimate police charites to recieve less donations.
a older black man called laughing hystaricly asking for my mom then when i said she wasnt in he laughed harder and hung up.
They are a shady, technically legitimate "non-profit" called the Police Protective Fund. Here's a link about them:
This number called my house. I am home with my mom but my mom just had surgery this morning and is in no mood to talk to anyone on the phone. The person asked me "Hello is Mrs. (my last name) home?" I said no. The man asked again, "Are either of your parents home?" I replied no again. Then he rudely asked "You are home alone in your house?!" I said actually no my mom is home but she just had surgery. He then said "Ok ill call back later" and hung up. This man was awfully rude to be any part of the police protection fund. I am 17 so even if I was home alone it wouldn't have mattered. A$$ H0L3
The way I deal with the callers now - after I pick up I just put the phone down on the table and walk away. After a few minutes I go back and hang up the phone. I have given up trying to tell them my name is on the do not call list and to remove my number from their call list.
Ditto on the "way to go Jeff" bit. they called here first time tonight. I never answer calls at all until I screen 'm.
