GRANT COUNTY, Wash. - Deputies with the Grant County Sheriff's Office want citizens to know Grant County Search and Rescue is not soliciting donations. 

A citizen informed the Sheriff's Department that a young man driving a white Ford Mustang was going door-to-door seeking donations for Grant County Search and Rescue, according to a press release issued on Wednesday. Deputies say the man, who identified himself as Jason Hatfield from jbtportraits.com, was asking for a $30 donation, which would get the donor a family photo in front of the Grant County Courthouse. Unfortunately, the person fell for the scam and the man got away with $30. 

Deputies say jbtportraits.com is a business that does not exist and this is a scam. They say the Grant County Search and Rescue is not soliciting donations through door-to-door or telephone marketing. If you run across someone using this scam, please call your local law enforcement agency.
