Sheriff's Office Looking Into Possible Scam

The Scotland County Sheriff's Department is gathering information regarding recent telemarketing calls placed to Scotland County.
According to the investigating officer, several citizens have reported being contacted by a caller from Helping Hands regarding sponsorship of books to be distributed through the local hospitals children's ward.
The officer has been unable to establish the validity of the offer and has not been able to contact the company. The investigators are asking anyone that is contacted by the caller to get a telephone number or mailing address for the company to allow the department to continue the investigation.
