Police warn of mail scam circulating Fort Myers

FORT MYERS, Fla. – Police are warning Fort Myers residents of a direct mail scam circulating the area that claims to be backed by the “Fort Myers Area Police Department.”

Officials said the fraudulent mail is an attempt to solicit donations for “Citizens Behind the Badge” on behalf of the “Fort Myers Area Police Department.”

FMPD said they do not solicit donations and encourage residents to research before making donations.

Non-profits affiliated with FMPD include the Fort Myers Police Department Fallen Officer Memorial Foundation and the Fort Myers Police Athletic League.
