The City of Three Rivers is warning Scidmore Park supporters about a website donation scam.
There are links from Facebook pages to a website not created nor authorized by the city. The illicit website encourages people to send funds to any of three prospective recipients: the City of Three Rivers, Friends of Scidmore Park, or the Three Rivers Area Community Foundation.
Anybody who has contributed through the site with PayPal funds is urged to contact Det. Sgt. Mike Mohney with the Three Rivers Police Department, 278-1235.
The city and Friends of Scidmore Park are reminding the public that donations for the park and petting zoo are accepted at city hall, or by mail to the Three Rivers Area Community Foundation, Box 453, Three Rivers.
The foundation also accepts PayPal funds through its website, at threeriversfoundation.com.
The unlawful website is: http://supportscidmorepark.bbnow.org/.
