The Hampden County Sheriff is warning area businesses and residents of a resurfaced scheme.

Sheriff Nick Cocchi said a scheme caller has been identifying him or herself as a Hampden County Sheriff’s Office staff. Sheriff Cocchi said the caller says, “thank for your past donation of $250, can we count on your donation again this year?”

The sheriff wants to make it clear that his office does not call to request donations.

Anyone with any clues about the schemer’s identity or location is asked to call the Hampden County Sheriff’s Office.
