Warner Robins police warn against possible 'fallen officers' fundraising scam


If you’ve received a call to help raise funds for fallen officers in Warner Robins, it could be a scam.

The Warner Robins Police Department posted to its Facebook page Tuesday that some residents are receiving calls to raise funds for fallen officers, but officials say the calls are not from them.

“At this time, NO ONE from our department is a part of this fundraising, and this may be a scam,” read the Facebook post.

One person commented that they received a call to their business from someone waiting to talk to a person “in charge of donations” and asking for their financial information.

The department says it is looking into the situation.
