Hospice says out-of-state group is scamming people

Posted: Updated:
IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

One Eastern Iowa hospice is issuing a warning about a potential scam.

Iowa City Hospice said people have been calling them about a solicitation letter they got in the mail from an out-of-state organization, Hospice Support Fund. The letter asks them for money that is being raised to support local hospices. Iowa City Hospice said there is no affiliation between them and the Virginia group, nor is it affiliated with any other local hospices. 

"Any funds raised by this group do not support Iowa City Hospice or our local community, and Iowa City Hospice has never received any money or financial support from them," wrote Iowa City Hospice in a press release.

They said they don't share mailing lists and anything sent from them will have their name, logo, and contact information on it.
