Updated: Thursday, March 13 2014, 10:21 PM EDT
NISKAYUNA -- A mysterious phone call from a police organization is raising questions about whether it's a scam.

A Bottom Line Alert after CBS 6 viewer Ken in Troy got in touch, asking Dori Marlin about the call.

Ken said it was coming from the phone number (516) 986-2410 - which is out of Farmingdale, New York.

The caller said his name is Joe, and he was calling on behalf of the Police Conference of New York looking for donations.

Dori
did an online search and found lots of recent complaints from people
locally, saying they've received many of these same phone calls.

She
also found the Police Conference of New York "is" a legitimate
organization, based in Albany - and spoke with its President, who says
the calls are also legit.

He tells Dori, they use professional fundraisers to solicit donations - and Joe works for one of them.

So The Bottom Line: If you get one of those phone calls, it is "not" a scam.The Bottom Line: PCNY Phone Call
