MONTPELIER — Police are warning Vermonters about a phone scam targeting the holiday season.
Vermont State Police say that they neither the State Police, nor the Vermont Troopers Association solicit money via telephone calls, text messages, emails, or by any other means.
If you are contacted by someone claiming to represent either the Vermont State Police or the Vermont Troopers Association, and that person is asking for a donation, please do not give them any money or any financial or personal information.
These communications are not legitimate and are part of a phone scam.
Police say they have received reports of this scam targeting the elderly.
