It’s that time of year, when scammers prey upon the giving nature of our citizens, particularly the elderly, during the holiday season. Citizens are receiving phone calls asking for donations on behalf of the Summit County Fire Association and Hudson Fire Department. Neither organization solicits funds in this manner. Hang up and don’t provide any personal information.
At this time of year, don’t fall for phone scams. Never donate money or give personal credit card, bank account information or social security numbers out over the phone. If you want to donate to a specific organization, make sure it’s a legitimate organization and call the organization directly.
