A community warning; if you receive a phone call with a person asking for money on behalf of the Salvation Army, it could be a scam.

The non-profit organization said someone claiming to be with the Salvation Army is calling people and asking for money donations over the phone.

The Salvation Army said they do not make phone calls soliciting financial donations.

The group only calls people who have already given, thanking them for their donation.

The Salvation Army said it's not sure how many people have received the bogus calls, but said if you're contacted, call the Salvation Army directly at 804-225-7470.
