Fire departments across the state warn of scam

By  | 

MAINE (WABI) - Fire departments across the state want people to know about a scam.

Officials say folks are getting calls from the "Firefighter Support Fund" asking for money.

The caller says the effort is to help local firefighters, but that group is not affiliated with any department in the state.

Firefighters ask that you be aware that some people will try to take advantage of Mainers' generosity - and to be very cautious about what information you give out over the phone.
