Alleged scammers try to pull a fast one on Midland County Sheriff Scott Stephenson

By  | 

MIDLAND (WJRT) (2/26/2018) - An alleged fake law enforcement charity picked on the wrong guy Monday.

Midland County Sheriff Scott Stephenson got a call from someone claiming to represent the "Fundraising Center for Law Enforcement and Troopers." The caller asked him to provide a donation.

Stephenson said he asked the caller how they got his phone number and they hung up. The sheriff tried calling back at least 25 times but only got a recorded message on the other end.

He could not find a way to connect with a person from the organization.

Stephenson warned the public that the Fundraising Center for Law Enforcement and Troopers appears to be a scam.

The Michigan Sheriff's Association never raises funds through phone solicitation. The organization only sends mailers to seek funds.
