Powell PD issues scam alert

(Powell, Wyo) A local business received a telephone solicitation this morning for a t-shirt fundraiser for Powell Middle School - Great idea, except Powell Middle School is not doing a t-shirt fund raiser Powell Police chief Roy Eckerdt issued this statement: " Anytime you receive a telephone solicitation for a fundraiser, verify with the organization "receiving" funds." The Chief went on to say that, "If the solicitation is legit, that wont mind checking back after you have had an opportunity to verify. If the conversation becomes time sensitive or requires you to stay on the line and "act now", its more than likely a scam." #reboot #news
