I got the same call last week. Same exact excuse they used when I told them I didn't want to give my CC over the phone. So today I reeived a mailing, with me thanking me for my donation (I told them I'd send them a check). Here is the contact information on the letter: 1-866-391-6762. 1549 Ringling Blvd, 6th Floor, Sarasota, Fl 34236.I just got a phone call last week from "the Florida Police and Troopers Association" they said they were collecting money for the families of all the downed troopers this year. They urged me to donate over the phone via credit card. I almost fell for it then regained my senses. They said the administrative costs of sending out envelopes was too high and that it would really help them out if my donation could be NOW over the phone. After a little research over the internet I could not find a single institution or police fraternity called the "Florida Police and Troopers Association" I can only conclude that they do not exist and that I almost got scammed.
The letter says "a copy of official registration and financial information may be obtained from the division of consumer services by calling toll free 1-800-435-7352. REGISTRATION DOES NOT IMPLY ENDORSEMENT, APPROVAL OR RECOMMENDATION BY THE STATE".
