(RUTHERFORD COUNTY, TENN.) The Rutherford County Sheriff's Office reports a Murfreesboro woman received a phone call Wednesday asking for a donation to help Sheriff’s deputies harmed in the line of duty and their families. But, the call was a complete hoax! The Sheriff's Office says, "This is a scam call because the Sheriff’s Office does not call and ask for donations for any cause."
The woman said the caller asked for her bank account number, but she refused to give it to the unknown con-artist. Instead, she called the Sheriff’s Office, which is what anyone receiving such a call should do - or, contact your local police department, depending on where you live.
