By Allison Olimb of The Press PARK RIVER, N.D. -- Scam phone calls are making the rounds in the local area. Scammers are pos- ing as local fire departments mak- ing fundraising calls. On Sept. 26, Grafton Volunteer Fire Department posted to social me- dia, 'qhere have been reports of peo- ple making phone calls representing Grafton Fire Department asking for donations on our behalf. These not representatiws from ale Graffon Fire Department. We will be sending out our annual fund drive mailer the first week in October for Fire Prevention Week. Thank you." The Cavalier County Sheriff's Office also warned against someone making calls asking for money for a "Firefighters Support Group" and encouraged citizens to be wary. of who is calling and asking for mon- etary support. The next day, reports came from the Minto area of similar scam calls. Minto Rural Fire Department volunteers stressed on social media that they are not soliciting donations over the phone, adding that the scammers were providing a web ad- dress to make donations. "Please do not entertain these phone calls and know that this is NOT your local volunteer departments." Park River Volunteer Fire De- partment President Bob Lundquist said that he has seen the comments on Facebook about these other lo- cations but to date, has not heard of anyone in Park River receiving these calls. He echoed the sentiment of these other department. "The fire depart- ment would not make calls asking for donations," he said. "We do the door to door and send out letters to businesses asking for yearly dona- tions." That annual door-to-door cam- paign is what the community of Park River should expect. Members of the Park River Volunteer Fire Depart- ment will be knocking on doors starting at 5:30 p.m. on Oct. 15.
