Niagara police are warning the public about a new scam that targets local businesses in the Niagara region.
The victim receives a phone call from a person who claims they are a representative of the Grimsby Fire Department.
The scammer demands the victim give a cash donation for a ‘firefighter book.’
Police say the Grimsby Fire Department does not solicit for donations over the phone.
Anyone who is a victim of this scam or who may have information about this crime is asked to contact Niagara police at 905-945-2211 ext. 5400.
