Telemarketing Scam In Washington County

03-Feb-2018

Police in Washington County say telemarketers connected to an organization with questionable practices are targeting area residents. Jackson Police say callers are seeking donations for Americans for Police and Trooper Safety, which is apparently not a charitable organization, but is registered with the Federal Elections Commission as a political action committee. The group's treasurer is associated with several other organizations including one that was investigated by the IRS, FTC and states of Illinois and Missouri. They estimated the groups kept up to 90 percent of the donated dollars. Jackson Police say legitimate charities will give you time to do research and will send you an invoice, not demand immediate payment on the phone.
