I have received this call at least 5 times a day for the last 3 weeks. I called the number back and found it to be "The fraternal order of the Police. I asked them to remove my number. They asked for my number then she asked if my name was Linda P.... I advised yes she then said it would take 24 hours to have number removed. We will see......

This number calls 2 to 3 times a day and doesn't leave a message.  Very annoying! Stop harassment!

We are a non prophit organization that will put you on our do not call list, if you tell the person that calls to do so.  The National DNC list does not apply to non prophit organizations, if it did, then the politicians could not call and ask for your support, or donations.

You can email your phone number to ryanh@familytv.com, and he will put you on the FOP Do Not Call list.

I just started getting these annoying calls: Feb 13, 14, 17, 19, 20, 23, 24
I never answer them because I didn't know who was calling.
Be a man and leave a message instead of repeatedly calling!
This guy is even on facebook:  Benjamin Roskelley

So ashamed of all the harassing he does that he won't even show his own face!

How many times is too many times to get calls?  I got called from this number last week and they asked for the "man of the house", I said I was and they asked about donating to the police.  I said no.  

The next day they called and asked for the "woman of the house."   I said we weren't interested.... yet the number has come up twice since then.  If the police are using these people, I will NEVER donate.  I can only assume these telemarketers are stupid or intentionally harrassing.... either way if the police really are using these bozos to raise money, I suggest they stop immediately.

Have received so many calls from this number (after initially stating I wasn't interested in donating to the Fraternal Order of Police), that I added it to my phone's "block call" list.  Unfortunately, my husband answered tonight on the 1st ring (phone feature kicks in AFTER 1 ring).  They asked for ME by name (lady of the house), but then, both our names are listed in the white pages.  Told my husband it was "Corporation of Character" calling, or something weird like that.  Can't imagine a legit business believes there's anything to be gained from continuing to call me... ???

Yep, called me 2 or 3 times a day asking for the lady of the house.  everytime I said what do you need they either hung up or said we will call back.  After about 6 annoying calls I yelled at them to stop calling and hung up.  Another call and I immediately said stop calling and the guy was polite and said he would put my number on their do not call list.  Finally no more calls.  
 Also be sure to contact UTAH DEPARTMENT OF CONSUMER PROTECTION and voice your complaints.  I spoke to one of the investigators about the harrassing calls that I and many friends were getting.  They are actually developing a criminal case against the call center that the FOP uses for their fund raising.

I'm an idiot.  I realize this, there's no need to point it out.

I decided to actually donate to this organization.  I had been getting these calls almost everyday, from the same guy (now I realize it's just a well done computer voice), so I thought if they're trying so hard, why not.  Also, my fiance's a cop, so I thought it would be nice.  I'm now trying to take back my donation (hopefully I'll be able to do this by tomorrow).  

After giving my donation I decided to ask the guy about the organization and get their website etc.  Suddenly he started going on about how he could either send me a pledge card in the mail, or I could make my donation online through the website (note: this was AFTER I had given my credit card information).  I was confused so I said "Um... I thought I already made my donation, like, a second ago..." and then this OTHER voice (much deeper and even creepier sounding, if you can believe that) came in and started talking about the website and how I could make a donation there, and suddenly I heard all this noise in the background as well.  So, confused, I asked if I had been talking to a recording before.  Then the OTHER voice we all know and "love" so well came in saying "Oh, do I sound that bad?"  And I said, "Oh, no, it just sounded like I was suddenly talking to a completely different person.  It was a little weird."  And then the guy said, "Well, I understand your concern.  Thank you for your donation today." And hung up!

This does not seem legit at all to me and I am now trying to cancel my (albeit small) donation!  Don't be an idiot like me.

They have been calling for awhile but we never answered because they never left a message.  My number is on don't call list and I just renewed it 45 days ago. Don't call list should protect from calls like this, but scammers know how to go around it. Looking at the records on this chat, they have been harassing people from August last year. Who is the State authority in Utah to take care of these guys?  Federal Attorney?   Why we still are getting these calls?

They would call my home early in the day and then mid-evening, while my husband was sleeping he works odd shifts. And they never left us a message either, it's alitle rude, but what do you do?  Then they called one saturday afternoon and I answered and they said is this sharon? I said yes and then thought to myself how do they know my name, then he went on but first he made a joke and then went on with his speech, I answered a couple questions not giving out personal information of course and then all of a sudden in the middle of his speech he said he had to go and would call later but he hung up before I could tell him no thankyou.

We have an unlisted phone number and we'd like for this place to remove our name and number from their list.
They are very aggressive and won't take no for an answer to leave us alone.
We never donate or buy from solicitors.

I will not donate anything through a telephone call no matter how rude or polite the caller may be, it only brings in more calls from other organizations looking for donations.  May I suggest to send letters - I cannot hang up on your letter; or place donation boxes throughout Utah businesses - I drop coins into those all the time.  Better luck on your fund drive, but please do not have a caller say, "This is so and so police department, but don't worry - you are not in trouble - ha, ha!" - that's as far as they get before they hear a click.  Good luck.

Wow, this totally freaks me out!!! So sorry to all of you that have been receiving phone calls from my previous phone number. I obtained the number from Qwest about 3 years ago. I have no association with those who are calling you. I no longer - I repeat - NO LONGER have this number. I totally get the frustration and anger but please do not go searching for me or post my facebook address for all to see when I am SO not the person or organization responsible for the harassment.

Have called several times, and go through the whole speech, even though it was my child who answered the phone - and asked my child to donate.  A little ridiculous.  I called them right back at the same number, and received customer service, where I asked to be put on their do-not-call list.  Since they are a "non-profit", they may be exempt from the National Do Not Call Registry (so dumb!).  Just call them and ask to be on THEIR do-not-call list.

These people have been calling my number for 6 years now and each time they ask for Mr. Forsythe and every time they call I tell them there is no Mr. Forsythe at this number and I then ask them to remove me from their call list. They apparently have no respect for that request as they call my number every year and keep calling til I til them I am not interested. My suggestion is answer and listen to their 60 second ramble then tell them to hold on while you go get your wife to talk to them. Then just sit the phone down for a couple of minutes and let them wait. Then pick the phone back up and tell them your sorry but your wife is taking a crap and it must be a bad one and can she call them back...then say wait a minute I think I hear her coming now.
Again set the phone down for a minute then return and apologize and say no she was just screaming in pain. Hopefully your consumption of their time will discourage any further calls.

A big name charity can do that because they tell the donor truthfully that they are going to do that, this type of fraud happens because the fundraisers lie, there is a difference. A big difference. LOL

Dont you have some more calls to make? LOL

I have no doubt that they are collecting money for a charity...and likely legit. The one thing to know about phone requests for money is that the actual charity will only see about 20% of any donation. I WILL NOT give to anyone calling to solicit money.

Unless you actually answer the phone and specifically request to be added to their DNC list, filing a complaint against them will do absolutely nothing, even if you are all ready on the National Do Not Call... While they are a private telemarketing firm named Corporations for Character (which by the way, is actually owned by the same people as Feature Films for Families, and Corporations for Character call centers are often in the same buildings as Feature Films for Families call centers), they are calling on behalf of a Non-Profit Charitable Organization. This makes them exempt from the National Do Not Call list, unless you specifically tell them that you don't want calls from them any more. Word to the wise though, if you do tell them you want to be on their Do Not Call list, or to be removed from their calling list, WAIT FOR THEM TO SAY GOODBYE BEFORE HANGING UP! The voice IS actually a recording, being controlled by a person sitting at a computer terminal. The real person can hear you, but you can't hear them. They simply press pre-determined buttons based on what you say to play pre-recorded audio files (for "quality purposes"), and they have a specific button to push for the DNC, if requested. If you request this DNC, they have to go through the entire DNC script with you or their system wont add you to the DNC. If you hang up early, the buttons for your call disappear from the screen and the next call comes in (hence new buttons for the new call). So, you have to wait for them to say goodbye, because after they press the DNC button, then pressing the "Thanks, Goodbye" button causes their system to automatically add your number to their DNC list. If you do not let them say goodbye before hanging up, they can't press this button.

And I know all this because, as you can tell, I am an employee of this company (ACnd yes, the call center they call from is actually based in Utah).

so a big name charity can pay executives 100k+ a year, spend multiple millions on advertising, and thats fine...because it is program expense.....I am sure television stations, newspapers, and radio LOVE these stories because guess what...YOU TUNE IN....THEY SELL ADVERTISING TO YOUR 'LEGIT' CHARITY.....and you are now informed zombies...

Ultimately, who gives a F*$@ what the telemarketers do, nobody really pays attention.....I am glad you are all focused on the BIG problems facing our country, oh thats right forget also about problems in your neighborhood.....

You are all complete idiots with too much time on your hands.

I don't think real people supporting police  would want you going door to door,and asking people to put it on under there mats.Mark it Police..be afraid to knock at the door,when you our home.To pick up donation..Then not brother showing up when its not posted on your door.I don't think our police would ever support,putting money out this way.I called Ogden Dispatch on coats for kids,here in Ogden..They know nothing about what you folks our up too in the area..How can I support that? I don't think so.Unless you show up with some type of ID from FOP don't brother coming to my house.
