NORTON SHORES, Mich.-The Facebook page of Find Jessica Heeringa is warning people who want to donate to the family. There is an imposter who says he is collecting money for the family.

The Norton Shores Police Department says they have been notified of at least one incident of fraud. The Roosevelt Park Police Department are currently investigating the fraud which took place on Tuesday, May 14th.

The statement below is from the Facebook page:

“This is with great disgust that I share this with you all. It has been reported that a person has been standing outside of Walmart in Roosevelt Park collecting donations for Jessica’s son. This person is in no way affiliated with any of the family. This person has been turned into all Walmart stores. I will continue to report this person to all stores. Please share this info, so everyone knows these people are frauds. If you do see anyone collecting donations, call 911!”

The Roosevelt Park Police are still investigating and they may ask the Muskegon County Prosecutor to file charges.

Police say they are two valid funds you can donate to to help the family. The Muskegon County Silent Observer-Jessica Heeringa Reward. Care of the Norton Shores Police Department at 4814 Henry Street, Norton Shores, Michigan 49441.

The other is the Jessica Heeringa Family Fund-PNC Bank. Care of Jessica Heeringa Family Fund, P.O. Box 0077, Fruitport, Michigan, 49415. You can also donate directly to the family at the Family Command Center at Points Mall Parking Lot.

    why waste time doing the facebook thing- simply walk up to the dude, offer a dollar and ask why he needs it and when he says the jessica thing then call 911 and file a complaint. the problem is he might simply say he will collect and then show up at the little stand near the station and turn the money in. at that point no harm, no foul.

    There's a female doing the same thing. She was at the Walmart on Henry. Says they're collecting money to take Jessica's son to Chuckie Cheese. She's an older woman, medium length, dirty blonde hair. She has a couple of sores on the left side of her mouth, and has a very gravelly, gruff voice. Beware of her, too.
