Some Montgomery County residents have recently received telephone calls from folks claiming to solicit donations for the community's volunteer fire company. These "spoof" requests are not real. The callers hijack the fire company's telephone number, so the call appears to come from the fire company. Don't be fooled... these people are not affiliated with our volunteer fire companies!
The Worcester Volunteer Fire Department never solicits donations by telephone, either directly or through a third-party. Fire Department donation requests are always sent by US mail, on official Fire Department letterhead and in an official Fire Department envelope.
If you receive a spoof solicitation call please contact the Worcester Volunteer Fire Department at (610) 584-5159, and click here to file a complaint with the Federal Communications Commission.
