Sheriff Says New Calls Are Just Old Scams

posted by John Baibak - 

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.
