SCAM reported

To: Maggie Valley Business Leaders

From: Chief Russell N. Gilliland

Date: October 21, 2022


It has come to my attention that someone is calling our area business leaders and requesting a donation in the name of the “Maggie Valley Police Auxiliary” by using a credit card or other means. This is a SCAM. The Maggie Valley Police Department does not have an auxiliary. Please do not donate. Please call our agency if it continues to occur at 828-926-0867.

However, Royce Publications is asking participation to support the Maggie Valley Police Associations annual calendar event. Royce Publications is legitimate and most of our business leaders are familiar with Royce Publications. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call our office at the above number. We can clarify any concerns.
