Police are warning of scam phone calls from someone seeking donations for the American Police Officers Association.
Columbia police said the callers claim their organization provides training and equipment for police officers and needs funds “to keep our officers safe”.
When confronted by a retired police officer, the caller hung up. When the officer called the number back, no one answered.
Police reminded people to be cautious with phone solicitors and never give personal information over the phone. This was the most recent fake number they used, 831-708-6333. Rotten scum.
