As a community remembers Yarmouth Sgt. Sean Gannon, police say scammers are exploiting the officer to try and get money.

The Barnstable Police have received several calls from scammers claiming to raise money for a so called "Sean Gannon Fund".

Yarmouth Police shared a warning to their social media page saying at this time they are not seeking donations over the phone.

However, police say a Go Fund Me page created by Beth Ambrosini is legitimate.

Gannon, a K-9 officer, was killed on April 12th while executing a search warrant in Barnstable.

His dog, Nero, was injured but is since recovering.
