Brookfield Volunteer Fire Company warns of scam

July 30, 2018 GMT

BROOKFIELD — The Brookfield Volunteer Fire Company reminded residents to be careful if they receive a call asking for donations.

A group or groups have been soliciting donations over the phone in the area—something the fire company never does, according to a post on its Facebook page.

The company said it does not ask for donations over email or phone. Instead, the company sends out three to four mailers each year with a letterhead and a return addressed envelope.

Ordinarily, the company would also go door-to-door to ask for donations in June, but postponed until September this year because of the May storm, according to the Facebook post.


Residents were urged not to give out personal or financial information over the phone.
