There is a telemarketing scam going around where a telemarketing firm will claim that they’re with the Illinois Sheriff’s association and ask the person they’re calling for a monetary donation. Christian County Sheriff Bruce Kettelkamp spoke with Regional Radio News and said how the ISA never solicits by phone.
Sheriff Kettelkamp said that you should ask for the name and phone number of the telemarketing firm who calls you when you encounter someone making this claim, and reminded the public that you shouldn’t give out any personal information to these telemarketing scams.
You should take any information on the telemarketing firm that you got to your local law enforcement. Also should you have any doubts about a telemarketing call, you should just hang up.
