Winter Haven Police Department:
We want everyone to know that our members WILL NOT contact citizens or solicit funds for any reason – especially collecting for a sports team.
We had a kind citizen contact us regarding that exact thing. She even gave us the name of one of our members who supposedly was the solicitor. Our member had no clue what the citizen was talking about.
Don’t fall victim to these scammers who prey on the kind hearts of our citizens. If you encounter someone like this, please contact the Police Department at 863-291-6178.
