The Illinois State Police is warning the public about another phone scam. The scam is a variation of several others, this one asking for donations for fallen police officers. That’s not a call they make says Master Sergeant Jason Bradley.
Bradley says the call often comes from a 312 number, but the public should be wary of calls asking for money coming from any number. If you get such a phone call, he recommends reporting it to the Attorney General’s office.
