This number called today claiming they are officers and have warrant for outstanding loan I never asked for or received. When I asked if they were Harris County or Galveston County the heavy accented male called me very nasty names and hung up.
Caller id says Houston tx, but wasn't home when they called and the machine has only a dial tone where the caller hung up rather than talk. Googled it and most of the wording was foreign. Does anyone know who this new pain in the a....is????
Caller ID say Texas Fraternal Order of Police. Looking for donations and DONUTS.
My mom got a call from this #, but was unable to get to the phone in time so she tried to call them right back and it said "you have reached a number that is no longer in service or has been disconnected". How does someone call from a # that is not in service??? She has had several weird calls in the past that said they were collecting money for the Policemans Ball or for Fallen Officers. She told one that she & her husband had decided to make donations differently now & the person got real crappy & disrespectful to her on the phone & then hung up!
This is probably a Debt Collector spoofing caller ID to show Faternal Order of Police instead of the actual originating station. You are likely to have gotten calls the same day from other known Debt Collector's numbers. They try to get your credit card or other personal info by asking you to make a charitable donation.
DX - Houston
Called again (have gotten many from this number).
I intentionally answered this time. A live person, who said the name of some company (didn't catch it, think it started with a C) that represented the Texas Fraternal Order of Police, specifically asked for me by name (correctly).
He went off on his prescribed spiel, taking a break when he asked me about isn't it nice to have the police their to protect us (obviously, expecting a positive answer). Instead of answering, I said point blank I was not interested in giving to the FOP and to have my name removed from their calling list immediately. After a hesitation (probably had to find the turn down part of his prepared script), he came back with something like "we appreciate your view and don't want to push you ..." (he appeared to be ready to run on, so I interrupted him again and said to BE SURE TO REMOVE ME FROM YOUR CALLING LIST. Again there was a hesitation (no response) and I just hung up.
We'll see if they stop calling me now!
THIS IS A SCAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! EVEN IF ANY OF THE MONEY YOU MAY GIVE GETS TO THE FOP, IT WILL LIKELY BE LESS THAN 10% OF WHAT YOU GIVE (the collecting company will pocket the rest as their expense to collect).
WORST CASE: IF YOU GIVE THEM YOUR CREDIT CARD INFO, THEY CAN STEAL YOUR IDENTITY AND RUN UP CHARGES.
NEVER GIVE OUT YOUR BANK OR CREDIT CARD INFO TO ANYONE THAT JUST CALLS LIKE THIS UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES.
If you are even considering making a contribution, DEMAND they mail you a donation form along with full information on the collecting company and the organization they claim to represent--they if you get it, check it out with the Better Business Bureau first!!
The caller asked for me by name (which was correct). No ID. Then said he was sorry he had the wrong number. When I tried to call back (caller ID) recording state the number is no longer in service!
yes me too somebody call me frat-ord-police 1-281-763-7532
Have been calls from FOP for donations as previous post said.....now they use a generic Houston number. The one time I spoke with someone, I asked him why would a supposed police organization want an individual to give financial info over the phone which is a HUGE no no? He hung up without answering....
*** SCAM ****
Now trying a local number front to fool people.
Never give any money (credit card info) to these type callers, it's a fraud at best.
I am so tired of getting hang up calls from this number.
These calls are annoying telling you it is for family's of police that were killed or hurt in line duty...I have a nephew with a brain injury and they did not help him as far as I know. Quit calling please!
I got a call from 281 763 7532 at 845p, I was getting my daughter ready for bed. No message was left. I have received several calls from the same number. No message was left in my voice mail. Comes in the Caller ID as Houston TX call.
The do not call list does not apply to charitable organizations it applies only to telemarketers.
Once you donate $ for teddy bears (?) or etc..these calls never stop!! Being a truck driver I figure I have exceeded my donations to the DOT/police or other highway revenue.
Looking for donations for police.
Got this number twice on my land phone, left no msg, id caller says its the frat ord police. Its a Houston, TX number, I live in West TX. Don't call me anymore.
