Monterey Police Report Scam Phone Calls
Monterey's Hilltop Express newspaper is reporting that someone has been trying to scam local residents by claiming that the Monterey police department needs their help with a fundraiser. According to the paper, several residents have reported getting calls from someone who says they are raising funds for the Department and asking for donations. Monterey Police Chief Kevin Phillips said that there is no such fundraiser going on and that the calls are "a scam." He said one such caller even called his mother asking for donations.
