BELL COUNTY, Ky. (WTVQ) – The Bell County Sheriff’s Office is warning people about a phone scam that has surfaced in the county.
Deputies say someone is calling people claiming to be with a law enforcement agency or the Fraternal Order of Police, asking for financial donations.
Investigators say no law enforcement agency in the area is conducting a fundraising phone campaign.
Deputies remind people never to give out personal or financial information out online or over the phone to people, businesses or organizations you don’t know.
If someone is claiming to be representing an organization and asking for money, contact the organization yourself to verify the campaign is legitimate.
