Last night my phone rang from an unknown number and the caller I.D. gave the location of "Washington DC." I picked up and heard a person identify himself as a staff member for the National Police Foundation. He said he was asking for donations to help the family of a fallen police officer.

I had my computer in front of me so I started quickly googling. Normally, I would donate (and have) to police charities, but something about this felt off. Turns out, I was right.

The first thing I see when I click on the Police Foundation fraud page is "The Police Foundation does NOT solicit donations from anyone via phone. If you have been contacted via telephone and asked to make donations to the National Police Foundation in Washington, D.C., this is a scam."

If you receive a call like this, they ask you to report it HERE
