A new scam targets a Lexington Police Charity called, “Shop with a Cop.” And it could also target citizens.
The department store business owner received a phone call from a man who claimed he was collecting money for “Shop with a Cop.”
However, this non-profit program only takes up donations in December. But the caller said he needed the money for this weekend.
Police don’t do any of the shopping until December.
If someone calls claiming they are raising money for “Shop with a Cop,” call the police.
