Scammers Using Troops To Extract Money

Police are warning of a new scam where victims are being targeted by individuals who claim to need money for college. Scammers are going door to door claiming they are in a contest to win college scholarship money, which involves raising funds for the troops. They will usually say that they are from a specific college in Colorado. The scammer will then request personal information and may ask for cash or a credit card number. If the person seems legit, it’s recommended you ask for a contact person at the college or university and for the persons name. You should then contact the college through information or number found online not through any number given to you by the individual.
