Have you gotten a call from someone claiming to be from the GRFD and asking for donations?

Be wary-- The Grand Rapids Fire Department is warning the public about a recent telemarketing scam.

In a release, the GRFD say that callers are posing as representatives from the Grand Rapids Fire Department or Grand Rapids Firefighters Union and asking for money.

Fire Chief John Lehman said,

“Neither the Fire Department nor Union is currently engaged in seeking monetary donations from the public. We have asked and are not aware of any area fire departments engaged in seeking funds via telemarketing operations, please be wary of these calls.”
