Trumbull firefighters warn of phone scam

January 3, 2019

TRUMBULL - The Long Hill Volunteer Fire Co. #1 has issued a phone scam warning to Trumbull residents.

“Just this morning, (Jan. 2, 2019) we have become aware that a group of scammers are again actively calling Trumbull residents posing as our department asking for donations,” it posted on its Facebook page.

It said the fire company is not making these calls.

“Last year, it was reported that many times the caller ID displayed “VOLUNTEER FIREFIGHTERS” or “FIRST RESPONDERS”; this too has again been CONFIRMED as of this morning. Please do not donate to these criminals. This is NOT any of the three volunteers fire departments in Trumbull!”
