It is with dissapointment that we announce a SCAM claiming to solicit money related to the death of K9 Sgt. Sean Gannon.
Barnstable Police has received several calls stating they are raising money for the "Sean Gannon Fund". This is a SCAM. The phone numbers used so far are: 508-418-0669, 508-418-0431, and 508-418-0979. There are NO ACTIVE PHONE SOLICITATIONS being conducted to raise money.
The Go Fund Me by Beth Ambrosini IS legitimate.
Anyone wishing to donate may do so through the Yarmouth Police Foundation. We will accept in-person donations at Yarmouth Police Headquarters, or visit the Yarmouth Police Foundations website for mail and online donations: www.yarmouthpolicefoundation.org/donate/
This post is meant address the obvious phone solicitation scam that is occurring. At this time the Yarmouth Police Department has no reason to believe that legitimate businesses will not donate money that have collected from customers.
"Like me - briny and goodlooking - those are my oysters," said Craig Poosikian, of BHG Oyster Farms at First Encounter Beach. Poosikian was a hit at last month's Meet the Fleet. MTF's are always very popular and a chance for us to introduce people to the commercial fishermen and shellfishermen who are behind the great local seafood we all eat. Attendees also learn about the fishing industry on the Cape, socialize and eat amazing free food.
