SPD warns of scam

Thursday, September 23, 2010 - 12:39pm

The Shreveport Police Department has received several complaints recently regarding phone calls asking citizens for donations.

Over the past few weeks, the department has heard from concerned citizens reporting that someone purporting to be from the Shreveport Police Department has called soliciting donations. The Shreveport Police Department DOES NOT solicit donations in any way, shape, or form and if someone calls you passing themselves off as a representative of the Shreveport Police Department asking for money, they are perpetrating a scam and you should immediately call us at 318-673-7300.

Please be extremely wary of any unsolicited phone calls you receive asking for charitable donations. While there are many worthwhile causes that truly need financial assistance, never, under any circumstances, give your hard earned money without knowing exactly who you are giving it to and what those funds will be used for.
