There's a scam phone solicitation going around the area. The Monroe Volunteer Fire Department is reminding residents that they do not solicit donations by phone. If someone has received a phone call soliciting donations, the money won't be contributed to the local non-profit fire department. Residents are reminded to never give credit card, debit card or bank account information to anyone requesting donations, especially over the phone. The Easton Volunteer Fire Department doesn't call residents either asking for donations, and urged anyone receiving such a call to ignore it. Fire officials says they were alerted to the bogus call with a caller ID reading "VOLUNTEER FIRE" in all caps with the number 475-219-2354. The caller said he was from the Easton Volunteer Fire Department and asked if they could count on the recipient for a donation.
