Scammers Taking Advantage Of Police Tragedy

April 30, 2018 - 7:22 am

DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - Scammers are coming out of the woodwork to swindle donors who just want to help the families of two police officers and a civilian who were shot in Dallas last week.

An outpouring of generosity has been funneling money through some legitimate channels to support the family of officer Rogelio Santander who was killed, and his partner critically injured, and a Home Depot employee who are still in the hospital.

The Dallas Police Association has had a number of reports of bogus solicitors collecting or calling for donations.

There were even reports that someone was taking contributions, complete fakers, at AT&T Stadium during the weekend at the NFL Draft.

The safest thing is to contribute only through the Assist the Officer Foundation through their website
