Scam: Muster donation calls
By: Brandon Darnell, News Messenger Reporter
Recent telephone calls to residents asking for donations for the Fireman’s Muster and the Lincoln Fire Department are scams, according to firefighters. “We have not asked for donations,” said Operator T.J. Thomas. “Don’t give money to them.” According to Thomas, firefighters have not been, and won’t be, asking for donations. Capt. Scott Lombardi said firefighters have received several calls from residents questioning the validity of those calls for donations, and he echoed Thomas’ recommendations not to give money, as it is not going to firefighters or the muster.
