Scammer soliciting ‘donations’ for local fire companies

Scam AlertAuthorities are urging citizens to be on the lookout for a local scammer who is allegedly soliciting residents for “donations.”

Local police say a man named “John,” calling from 443-345-8283, has been phoning residents and saying he’s with the “foundation.”

The man asks for donations for the local fire service and, when asked follow-up questions, he abruptly hangs up.

Authorities say no local fire or EMS company is currently soliciting donations by telephone.
