State Police are warning people to be mindful of potential Internet scams that may be created asking for donations for the family of Trooper Christopher Skinner.
State Police say the Skinner family is only endorsing two funds for donations.
The first fund is the "Skinner Children Ed Fund," set up at the Visions Federal Credit Union. This is an education fund for the Skinner children. Anyone looking to make a donation can do so at the credit union.
The Skinner family is also endorsing the "Signal 30 Fund," which helps the families of New York State Police.
