Hello nice Lady. How is Mayberry this morning? Fine I Hope.
In Kardisastan, my old home...When one recieves
a call of this nature, we just say " T am so sorry, the one you are calling just passed away." or "Allah has called Ali home". This will embarrass the caller, who will normally say," So very sorry, sorry I bothered you." and hang up. We say, this, not in English, but in our own language. Try it with a little sadness in your voice.

I have alot of family in Law Enforcement and have been myself. We never take calls for donating money they are all scams. If the police in your town or state or county are raising money they advertise and do it in the public. On very special occations they will go door to door but it has to be a big deal. The police do not call you for money that I have ever heard of. Beware. The zretirement fund is completely paid by the wages they seperate and the government matches not donations. These groups that call and pester people are actually government offices seperate from the offices that record and report wages. But most are just frauds. Those offices that are not frauds don't help the retiremnet of the officers either it usually goes into a private spending account for the elected official of the state to be spent however they feel needed. Usually for th hookers they keep off the books for the weekends without the press.
