Company claimed to be part of PAL in my local community. I agreed to donate and they said they would come by and get the money from me and gave specific instructions on how it should be titled on the check. Also, they offered PBA cards and stickers for higher donations. This sounded fishy so I called the local PBA's and they had no knowledge and stated that they do not solicit donations over the phone. When I called the number back from the caller ID I was first told "Wrong number" and then could only get a message that the Magic Jack customer I was trying to reach was unavailable. When the gentleman came for a donation nothing seemed right at all. I asked him about where his charity was out of? How do they support the local chapters? and why the local PBA, police dept and sheriff's department had no knowledge of them. I told him I did not wish to donate and he said ok and high tailed it out. I wrote down his license plate and will give it the authorities. A real shame because the local PBA's are great organizations. I hope this information gets out before they scam anyone else.
