Belgrade police are warning people about a new phone scam in which the caller claims to be a representative of the Belgrade Police Department. Details here:

The scam involves a caller claiming to be a representative of the Belgrade Police Department who is contacting citizens to solicit donations for the police department. The Belgrade Police Department says it is not soliciting any donations and when raising money for charitable organizations, such as Special Olympics, they will not do so by telephone.

The BPD urges citizens to use extreme caution when contacted by telephone solicitors. They advise the public not to provide solicitors with any personal, bank account or credit card information. If you have any questions regarding the validity of a call, obtain a return telephone number and name from the solicitor and contact your local law enforcement agency.
