(Dover, Del) - According to the Delaware Vounteer Firefighters Association they have received three phone calls and a couple of emails this week with reference to a person soliciting funds to support the firefighters of Delaware. Sometimes they use the words Firefighters and Paramedic Association. These calls are probably a scam.

We have notified the AG's Office and have passed the phone numbers on to them. The calls have happened in all three counties and lead back to 302 area codes in the Wilmington area. One even had a 800 number where you could leave your credit card information.

If you receive any of these phone call, try to obtain as much information as possible and call the AG's Consumer Protection Unit at 302-577-8600.
