Walla Walla County Sheriff's and College Place Police are urging people to look carefully at their mail, especially if they get one of these.

Reported to the Sheriff's office recently, this very sophisticated scam makes it look like you're donating money to a police fund that would benefit those in College Place. However, and alert citizen brought this in, because they said it just didn't seem right.

Turns out, after the Walla Walla County Sheriff investigated, contacted the people on the 'other' end, they learned this indeed is a scam.  Any and all such correspondences that seem strange should be reported to police.

Make sure you check out any and all charities who ask for your money, to ensure they are legit.  When if doubt, don't...and investigate.
