Big Island police are warning residents about another apparent telephone scam.
Police received a report Friday morning (June 14, 2002) from a Hilo resident that an unknown person had called him and asked him for a contribution to purchase a defibrillator for the Hawaii County Police Department. The caller requested a donation of $50 to $100.
The police department is not soliciting donations for a defibrillator, a police spokesman said, and residents should be on guard against the telephone scam.
