New Berlin FD Puts Out Scam Alert
Posted: May 12, 2016 6:15 PM CDT
The New Berlin Fire Department put out a notice on Thursday notifying residents that they have received calls from citizens who have received a call from an individual claiming to be a New Berlin Firefighter asking for a donation in the amount of $50, $100, or $150.
According to the New Berlin FD they will never solicit donations over the phone.
It is a good idea to never agree to give donations over the phone. Instead, find out the caller’s name and the name of the organization he or she represents. Ask to have information about the organization mailed to you or call the organization directly to see if they are soliciting donations and if the call was legitimate.
