Horry County police warn against scam phone calls

Horry County Police are investigating scam phone calls from someone claiming to raise money from a nonexistent police department.

Police received information over their tip line that an unknown person or business has been placing phone calls soliciting money under the name of the Little River Police Department, said Lt. Raul Denis with Horry County Police.

There is no Little River Police Department, so police caution everyone to not donate money or release any personal or financial data to the caller. The phone calls may display the source number of (700) 128-1047.
