Niagara County Sheriff’s Office investigating possible telephone scam

TOWN OF LOCKPORT – A Twilight Lane woman may have dodged a scam after becoming suspicious recently during a telephone call seeking donations to the Niagara County Sheriff’s Office.

The woman told investigators that the male caller had an “eerie” knowledge of previous donations she made to the Sheriff’s Office and became suspicious when the man said he was unable to process credit card donations and asked her to make out a check for $500 and leave it on her porch for pick-up the following morning.

The case is being investigated by the Sheriff’s Criminal Investigation Bureau.
