Po­lice warn of fire­fighter book scam in Grimsby

The Standard (St. Catharines) - - OPINION -

If a caller claims to be from the Grimsby fire de­part­ment ask­ing for a cash do­na­tion to sup­port as fire fighter book, it’s a scam. Ni­a­gara Re­gional Po­lice is­sued an ad­vi­sory Thurs­day, warn­ing res­i­dents about a phone scam tar­get­ing lo­cal busi­nesses. “The caller(s) de­mand a cash do­na­tion for a ‘fire­fighter book’ iden­ti­fy­ing them­selves as rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the Grimsby fire de­part­ment,” the po­lice ad­vi­sory said.

The fire de­part­ment does not so­licit do­na­tions over the phone. Po­lice are ask­ing any­one with in­for­ma­tion about the sus­pected fraud to con­tact them at 905-9452211 ext. 5400.
