AMARILLO -- The Amarillo Police Department has received at least two calls from people reporting that someone posing as a representative of the Police Department has called their home to solicit funds. 
The caller was a male, calling from a blocked number, in each case.
As a reminder, Amarillo Police do not engage in any type of telephone solicitation for donations. If you receive such a call, hang up immediately. If you have donated money or provided identifying information to any caller that identified themselves as a representative of the Department, please call 378-3038 to report the fraud.
