I have just found out that I may have been scammed by a false charity.
I found this out by Google.
I have recently received several diverted calls from my wifes business, from the "NSW Police Association Magazine" soliciting advertising.
As she is almost always with clients, I handle most of the calls via diversion, and the same guy with an English accent, has been persistently ringing.
Recently he was most persistent, and I told him, she makes her phone calls when she gets a cancelled appointment, and so give me your phone number and she can call you. He didnt give it and got off the phone real quick.
this made me suss, so i googled the above, and whilst I didnt find them listed as a specific scam, I DID find "NSW Rural Fire brigade"...we bought some raffle tickets...they ring me LOTS.
I am fairly sure the Police mag is a scam as well.
anyone else had this one?
It is a sad thing that this sort of scam is taking place, it makes it hard to have faith.
I also get hounded repeatedly by a legit charity that I did donate to, a cause close to my heart, but they have rang me so many times..even 3 times in one day, that I told them I would never donate to them again, and please never ring me
