A Northern Door fire department has reported unauthorized use of their name as part of a telemarketing scam. A major phone scam plagued Kewaunee County over the summer, but since that time, no further scams have been reported till now. Gibraltar fire chief Jared Anderson says this type of action is completely against the norm of his fire department.
The scammer is calling as part of an inspection program asking for donations and credit card information. Anderson also states the scammer is using the Gibraltar fire department phone number as a callback number. Any calls placed to that line are currently being routed to the scammer. Anyone who receives a scam message like this should report it to their local sheriff’s office immediately.
