The Aberdeen Police Department is warning citizens of a phone scam that is currently going around the area.
The scammers are calling the public asking for donations for fallen officers and for officers from the Aberdeen Police Department.
A spokesperson from the police department said, “This is a scam as the Aberdeen Police Department does not solicit donations from the public.”
The department is urging the public not to donate money over the phone but rather ask them to mail you the information.
If you have any questions regarding this scam, please call the police department at 910-944-9721.
