Two Rockford businesses are reporting receiving calls from someone claiming to be “acting on behalf of the Rockford Police Department and Crime Stoppers.”

In both cases, a male caller identifying himself as “Mike” requested monetary donations from an unknown number. The Rockford Police Department and Crime Stoppers say they are not actively soliciting for monetary donations over the telephone.

Anyone who receives a call from an individual asking for money on behalf of Rockford Police or Crime Stoppers should report the phone number to local law enforcement.
