Easthampton Police: Ignore phony fundraising calls
EASTHAMPTON — After city businesses reported receiving calls from someone claiming to be seeking donations for the local police, Police Chief Bruce W. McMahon is warning people that calls are a scam and not to give out personal or financial information over the phone.
“We are not doing any fundraising, we are not soliciting,” he said Wednesday.
McMahon said some business owners told police that the caller even became aggressive on the phone when they refused to donate or give information. Some were also called multiple times.
