This is to inform you that KPTS has been notified that an unknown group or individual has/have been making phone calls from an unknown source claiming to represent KPTS with the false intent to “check in on you”, and /or obtain a donation for the station. These fraudulent phone calls are in no way affiliated with KPTS-Channel 8. The impersonator begins by asking, “How are you doing”, and may ask you to give a donation. KPTS is not calling our viewers for donations. We request donations via mail or email.
Here at KPTS, we value your trust and support in us, your locally owned PBS television station. If you have received any suspicious calls, please call us during our hours of operation Monday – Friday from 8:30a-5p at 316-838-3090. If you have recently donated to the imposters, please check with your financial institution to obtain the possible charge information. If you would share any information relating to a suspicious call, or fraudulent charge that would be most helpful.
Thank you for your continued support of your favorite public television station, KPTS, soon to become, PBS Kansas.
