HARRISON, Ark. – Folks in Harrison and the surrounding areas are warned of another scam this week.
Sheriff Mike Moore says someone is posing as the Arkansas Sheriff’s Association and asking for donations to fund the Sheriff’s toy drive for this upcoming year.
He says his office is not engaged in any such drive, nor is the Arkansas Sheriff’s Association. The only activity that the Sheriff’s office is working on right now is the upcoming Boone County Sheriff’s Charity Golf Tournament on May 7.
Sheriff Moore says he wants everyone to be aware that these scammers may be calling.
He says to call the Sheriff’s office at 870-741-8404 with reports of any such scam or to verify that anyone asking for any type of donation is actually from the Sheriff’s office.
