Scammers impersonating police department in Lancaster County


AKRON, Pa. (WHTM) – Scam callers are impersonating a police department in Lancaster County.

Akron Borough police say people have been getting phone calls seeking donations for their department. Caller ID identifies the police department as the caller, and the calls appear to originate from an 859 exchange.

Akron police said they never solicit funds from residents. They said people who get one of these calls should immediately hang up and call the department at 717-859-6600.

They reminded people to never give personal information to anyone over the phone.
