A phone scam could be circulating the Lower Mainland.
People have been contacted for donations in the name of Vancouver Fire Fighters.
The Vancouver Fire Fighters Association was made aware of the scam after, New Westminster Fire Fighter’s were contacted by members of the public who were asked to give donations over the phone.
Robert Week the President of the Firefighters Association says he didn’t expect this during the holidays.
“It’s just quite sad at this time of year that they are trying to take advantage of people’s good will and our good name.”
The Fire Fighters Associations charitable Society does not solicit over the phone.
People are asked to contact Police if they have any information.
