West Virginia State Police warn against scam calls

The West Virginia State Police are warning the public against scams. 

In a press release, the State Police said they do not solicit any sort of contributions over the phone, by mail, or by home visits. 

If anyone claiming to be a trooper, law enforcement officer, or employee of the State Police requests a monetary contribution or baking account information, do not provide any information and hang up the phone. 

Over the past few days, the West Virginia State Police have received several calls from people with complaints that someone representing the agency was requesting donations. The donations asked for were $35, $75, $100, $200, or $300. 

The numbers did appear with 304 area codes, but they appear to be computer generated. 

If you have received a call of this nature, contact your local detachment of the State Police.
