B.G. ‘Shop with a Cop’
phone calls are a fraud

BOWLING GREEN — Police report an impostor is trying to solicit cash from those who are in the giving spirit this holiday.

Police said a city resident got a call Sunday from a man who identified himself as John Miller, a Bowling Green police officer, asking for “Shop with a Cop” donations. The department said there is no officer by that name on their roster, nor do officers solicit funds by phone for the annual Christmas-time event.

Police said the scam has been reported in other jurisdictions and caution people from giving out personal information over the phone.
