Media Release May 17, 2017
The Deer Lodge Police Department has received complaints of a male who is calling residents by phone and attempting to get their credit card information. The male is apparently advising people that he is raising money for Broadwater County Deputy Mason Moore, who was killed in the line of duty on May 16th, 2017.
The male who has a foreign accent represents that he is from the Montana Law Enforcement Academy and that he is accepting credit card donations.
This is a scam. The Montana Law Enforcement Academy (MLEA) is not soliciting donations for Deputy Moore.
The Montana Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association (MSPOA) is accepting donations for Deputy Moore’s family. However, The (MSPOA) is not soliciting donations by phone.
Do not provide your credit card information to this individual.
