BEWARE!! The Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office is warning residents to beware of phone call solicitations claiming to benefit the South Carolina Sheriff’s Association.
The South Carolina Sheriff’s Association has received information that telemarketers are soliciting funds
in its name fraudulently. The Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office wants to remind residents that the Sheriff’s
Association does not solicit contributions by phone or through telemarketers.
Association membership drives are held on a regular basis. These drives typically take place in the spring
and fall and then in conjunction with quarterly newsletter mailings. Citizens will know that a solicitation is
legitimate because they will always be done by mail and will include the Sheriff’s Association logo.
Anyone receiving a solicitation call claiming to be from the Sheriff’s Association should hang up and contact
the Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office at 843-524-2777.
