I am a former employee of Non Profit Services Inc. in Nashville, Tn. Non Profit Services Inc. specializes in the solicitation of funds for certain charities and non-profit organizations. NPS's top charity, "K-9 Police Officer's Puppy Patrol Program" is its main focus and its top charity by far. NPS uses misinformation, misdirection, and sales pressure to accomplish its sales goals which are a lofty $70.00 per hour per person. It is not too uncommon for NPS to raise $30,000+ on a Saturday. Here is an example of a sales pitch for the k-9 program/sale: Hello Ms. Smith, this James calling for the k-9 Police Officer's Puppy Patrol Program...how are you today?...Great!...I'll be really brief...I'm sure you've heard of the puppy patrol program where the police officers take their k-9 partners into the schools and educate the children on the dangers of illegal drugs and in-school violence, and so far over a million children have participated in this amazing program which is sponsored by Dogs Against Drugs and Crime Officers (DADDAC)...The way this works...you'll receive a 100% tax deductible invoice, a Puppy Patrol decal, and a thank you letter from the officers so that way you do know that it's from us Non Profit Services the only paid caller/solicitor for the program.           The way the scam works is that the disclaimer, "paid caller/solicitor for the program" is often disguised or muttered. The Telemarketer also fails to mention that NPS receives 85% of all donations or that the non profit can be donated to directly through its own website, www.daddac.com. The Telemarketer is also required to give at least 2 (two) rebuttals upon a turn-down, and these rebuttals are designed to scare or demoralize the potential donor. As a former employee, I have used these tactics as well, and I would like to sincerely apologize to the hundreds of people whom I have scammed. I rarely used the rebuttals myself, and I guess that's part of the reason why I was fired.         Many of the Telemarketers at NPS often cross the line even further by using terms like "our officers", "we go into the schools", other combinations of "we", and other lies, misdirection, localization, and misinformation. The reason for this is because the owner puts pressure on the employees to achieve his sales goals, and more importantly his credit/debit card donation numbers. I was terminated because my in-pay or returns dropped below an acceptable percentage (30% by week 5) or at least that is what I was told. I didn't receive a separation notice or pink slip however. I don't plan on entering into arbitration, and I have been looking for another job one month prior to my termination. You might say that I am disgruntled, but disgruntled or not, the truth needs to be told. Some the states often called are: Alabama, Arizona, California, Florida, Louisiana, Indiana, Iowa, Idaho (rarely), Kentucky, Montana (rarely), North Carolina, Ohio, Texas, and Virginia.
