KSP warns of phone scams

February 12, 2015

Special to the Mountain Advocate

The Kentucky State Police is advising all citizens to beware of phone scams requesting financial donations for fallen police officers.

KSP Post 16 in Henderson has documented a number of people who reported receiving calls from someone who states he is with KSP or another police professional fundraiser. His goal is to try to obtain donations (credit or bank card information) for fallen officers who have died in the line of duty. When asked for more information about his authenticity, he hangs-up. Complainants advise the caller may identify himself as “Rick” and calls from a 270 area code.
