Watch out for a phone scam where people are pretending to be raising money for the Washington State Patrol Trooper Association. Reports say that four months ago they started getting calls from people saying they had been contacted to the WSPTA to donate money. The calls turned out to be from people attempting to scam people.

The WSP wants the public to be leery of calls from anyone soliciting money or asking for credit card numbers or personal financial information over the phone. If you suspect it is scam, hang up and contact one of the local WSP district offices.
