The Orchard Park Police Department is warning the public about a holiday scam making its way around Western New York.

According to police, someone is calling people who live in the community claiming to be from the police department.

The scammer is asking for donations on behalf of the "police association for fallen officers" in the form of a one-time credit card payment.

The Orchard Park Police Department says it's not currently involved in any fundraising of this nature, and if you receive a call, you're asked to report it by calling 716-662-6444.
