Afterword – American Police Officers Alliance Scam
Is American Police Officers Alliance a scam? The organization is registered with the State of Virginia. The Virginia filing provides an address that is linked to a virtual office space. A Google search did not link the office space to the organization. However, it did link the address to various services (listed above). It is questionable why so many companies are utilizing the same office space suite.
The Disclaimer alerts consumers, the organization utilizes automated calls to raise money. Do not leave your phone number unless you too want to be robocalled by the organization.
