FRAUDULENT REQUESTS FOR DONATIONS REPORTED, Jan. 8, 2013
Friday, January 11, 2013
The Polk County Sheriff’s Office was made aware tonight of a fraudulent phone solicitation requesting a monetary donation on behalf of the Polk County Sheriff’s Office. Our agency has only been notified of one instance; however similar requests claiming to be made by representatives of the Polk County Sheriff’s Office are indeed false and should be reported to local law enforcement. This type of activity is a crime and will be investigated and taken very seriously.
