Scammers seek funds in coach's name

Posted: Thursday, November 20, 2008

ANCHORAGE - Anchorage police said scam artists are using an Anchorage man's battle with cancer to steal money from goodhearted people.

Dennis Mattingly, the founder of the Anchorage Bucs baseball team, is raising money for stem cell treatment he needs to fight a deadly bone cancer.

Police said scammers are using his name and calling Alaskans for donations to the "Dennis Mattingly Cancer Fund."

No such fund exists.

The Mattinglys said they're not making unsolicited phone calls asking for help.

Donations can be mailed in or dropped off at the First National Bank of Alaska or AlaskaUSA Federal Credit Union.
