Sheriff Says New Calls Are Just Old Scams

Hampden County Sheriff Nick Cocchi is warning people about an ongoing phone scam that uses his  name.  

Cocchi says the caller is pretending to be a staff member at the  sheriff's office thanking the caller for their 250 dollar donation last year and was hoping you could do the same this year.

It is a scam.  Don't do it.

The Sheriff says a nearly-identical scam  happened this past winter.  

Cocchi says his office does not request  donations and anyone who receives such a call should pass along the  information to police.
