Scam Alert: Beware of callers soliciting funds for Franklin Police

Consumer Alerts & Scams

It’s happening again. Scammers, pretending to be with local police departments. This time, they’re targeting people who live in Franklin.

Franklin Police say they’re getting reports about someone calling residents, asking for donations to benefit police. In most cases, they’re calling from a number with a ‘731’ area code.

They are not donating to your local police department.

According to Facebook pages for Dickson Poice and Hendersonville Police, residents there are getting similar calls.

If you get a call like this, hang up. Do not give them money.
