PIKE COUNTY, Ill. — The Illinois Sheriffs’ Association has alerted the public to beware of a telephone solicitation scam. Citizens are being contacted by telephone and asked to make a contribution to the Illinois Sheriffs’ Association to help fight the Assault Weapons Ban. Please ignore these calls! Do not give your financial information. The ISA never solicits by telephone! The Association would only send mail pieces, address membership on their social media and on their website.
The phone number that the scammers have used was (224) 324-3356 Cook County, IL. When you call it, it states the “Fundraising Center.” The Illinois Sheriffs’ Association is asking that this information be shared to help protect as many citizens as possible.
