LEBANON — The Tennessee Sheriff’s Association (TSA) would like to warn
the public of a scam circulating the state targeting citizens.
Scammers are calling and posing as TSA President and Montgomery County
Sheriff John Fuson and asking for membership dues and donations to help
during the pandemic.
“The TSA would never solicit funds or ask for donations over the phone,”
Sheriff Fuson said.
“All official communication from the TSA is sent through the mail. Members are
sent renewal letters in January. Follow-up renewal letters and thank you letters
are sent in April. The annual newsletter is sent in November,” Fuson added.
The TSA requests citizens to immediately hang up when they receive a call like
this and report it to their local law enforcement agency.
