PUTNAM COUNTY, Fla. -- The Putnam County Sheriff's Office is joining the list of agencies warning of local phone scams.

Investigators say the most recent scam involves telephone calls requesting for donations of money.

Earlier this year, the
St. Johns County Sheriff's Office received numerous reports of solicitors claiming they were raising money for children.

No word if the scams are connected.

Deputies remind the public that they do not request donations of any kind and urge citizens to be cautious when providing personal information by telephone.

I have received a lot of fake solicitation calls which I only found out were fake after looking up the phone number at I am not a bad person and I try to help others in any way I can but I hate being duped. Sadly, it's hard to tell a scam call from a legit one, so I choose not to give to any of them at all.
