HENDERSON, KY (WFIE) -

Kentucky State Police say there's someone out there trying to get donations in the name of officers who've died in the line of duty.

The problem is - it's a scam.

Troopers say the caller claims to be with KSP or another police professional fundraiser.

KSP will never ask anyone for their banking or personal information.

People who have complained say the caller may identify himself as 'Rick' and calls from a 270 area code.

If you should receive one of these calls or have questions, you are encouraged to call the Kentucky Office of the Attorney General at (502) 696-5300.
