I manage the financial affairs of several people. One person is generous to a fault. They sent her a "Friendly Reminder" dated January 9th (received in February). Then she received a telephone call asking if the funds had been sent yet. She is insistent on sending them a token donation. HOWEVER, the "Friendly Reminder" is in the exact same format as the Firefighters Fund. The tactics are identical as well...receipt of the "friendly reminder" followed by a telephone call within a day or two. The telephone calls she received insisted that she had promised them money in a previous telephone call. I know this cannot be the case, as she always tells them she has had a stroke and cannot make any donations at this time.
