Glendora Police are warning citizens to beware of phone calls from unofficial fundraisers soliciting cash donations for the Glendora Police Department.
Sgt. Matt Williams said one citizen called the department alerting them that a man who identified himself as Eric Thorton is calling residents asking for cash donations for the Glendora Police Department.
“He is not affiliated with the Glendora Police Department and we did not ask for him to solicit on our behalf,” said Williams.
“To be fair, when you call that number, it goes back to the Fraternal Order of Police, which is a legit organization, but they’re not calling on our behalf,” Williams added.
Glendora Police warns residents to be cautious when making donations from unsolicited phone calls and to be sure fundraisers are approved by the actual organization.
Williams said it is unknown how many other residents were contacted by Thorton.
