Scammers identifying themselves as State Police for hurricane donations

Often times, large natural disasters bring out the giving, caring side of people but unfortunately it also brings out nefarious characters who try to take advantage of those who would like to help. The Indiana State Police has been contacted by concerned citizens saying they have received telephone calls from individuals identifying themselves as State Police representatives. The caller said they are soliciting funds for victims of Hurricane Harvey. The persons that received these calls did not fall victim to these phone solicitors but instead did the correct thing and reported the incident. The Indiana State Police is not soliciting funds for the victims of Hurricane Harvey and will not be contacting citizens by telephone requesting funds.
