Kentucky State Police (KSP) Post 4 is warning citizens about telephone scams where the caller is claiming to represent the KSP.

“The KSP has not entered into any agreement with any fundraising organizations and, furthermore, has never solicited money over the phone,” said KSP Trooper Jeff Gregory in a news release. “We have received reports in the last few days that citizens are receiving these calls and want to make the public aware.”

Anyone who receives a suspicious call from someone wanting credit card or bank account information for a charitable donation should never give this information over the phone.

“We advise asking whomever you are speaking with to send you literature by mail to your residence for your review,” Gregory said.

Individuals who would like to donate to a worthy cause in support of the Kentucky State Police are asked to consider KSP Trooper Island Camp, as well as the Trooper Joseph Cameron Ponder Memorial Fund.

The mailing information for the aforementioned causes are below:
