Phone Solicitations

It was brought to our attention that residents were receiving phone calls soliciting money to benefit fire, police, and EMS. The incoming number is a Rhode Island number, and a male named "Fred" is on the other end of the phone.

Fred is a robot. The calls are interactive, and depending how you respond you'll receive a different prompt. It sounds very convincing. When asked if Fred was a robot, he responded that he was a real person. Fred also hung up on us on several occasions.

We don't know where specifically these calls are originating from. Fred claims Houston. What we want to emphasize is that should you choose to make a donation, we can guarantee it will not be supporting your local first responders.

Please pass word along that these calls don't support your community. If you have elderly relatives or family, who may not be browsing through their news feed on Facebook, please mention this information to them.

Thank you and have a great day.
