BEAVERCREEK, Ohio (WDTN) – Police in Beavercreek say residents have been getting scam phone calls from someone trying to solicit funds on behalf of the Beavercreek Fire Department and their IAFF union.

The male caller states that he is with the fire department and asks for victims’ bank account information or credit card information to donate money to the department.

Police say fundraising of this nature is not happening and any such calls should be considered bogus.

If you are ever unsure of an organization that is asking you to donate money, these tips from the FTC can help you discern what is real and what is a scam.
