Letter: Important tip

Kudos to WMUR for the warning about telemarketers calling by phone and falsely asking for donations to the “local police.” New Hampshire police departments do not ever call; they send any pleas for donations via the mail. I received such a call just a couple of days before this was mentioned on Channel 9. I answered by saying that I do not give donations over the phone and hung up. I hope a lot of folks heard this important message.

This is why I do not trust phone solicitors anymore. I used to give to these callers before, only to find out later on that some of them were actually scammers after I looked up the phone numbers and they came up at http://www.callercenter.com , reportedly used to perpetrate scams. Terrible people!
