Drew County residents are receiving solicitations for money from someone claiming to represent the Arkansas Scholarship Lottery, the Arkansas Sheriff’s Association or the Arkansas State Police. The solicitations are a scam, according to the Drew County Sheriff’s Office.

After receiving reports of the solicitations from several Drew County residents, the Drew County Sheriff’s Office contacted those agencies. “The Arkansas State Police is the only one of the three that call or send out anything in the mail, but their paperwork is very distinct,” said Drew County Sheriff Mark Gober.

Anyone who has doubts about the legitimacy of solicitations may contact the sheriff’s office. They will look into it for you.
