Scammers Reportedly Making Calls To SD Residents

August 7, 2014, 5:13 PM

SIOUX FALLS, SD -

The South Dakota Fraternal Order of Police says scammers pretending to be members of the organization are reportedly calling residents asking for money.

The organization says it is assisting the South Dakota Attorney General's office in an investigation into possible fundraising companies illegally making calls using the group's name.

Mike Walsh is the organization's state president. He says representatives do make fundraising, sponsorship and advertising calls, but they are accompanied by a "caller ID" based in South Dakota.

Walsh says the group always mails some materials before accepting any pledges. Con artists often request money to be transferred or mailed to addresses out of the state.
