The Morgan's Point Resort Police Department said they are investigating a scam after many people have been receiving phone calls from a Central Texas number asking for money for fallen peace officers. 

Those phone calls are a scam. Police said people have been receiving phone calls from the phone number 254-831-4032.

 Police said this is a scam to gather personal and financial information. Police said the scammers will pressure people and make you feel horrible if you do not donate money. 

Police said most charitable organizations will ask you for a donation via mail or flyer directing you to their website where you can make a secure donation online.
