Lake-area fire department warns of phone scam

The Tri-County Fire Protection District, which serves the city of Richland and rural areas of Pulaski, Camden and Laclede County, is warning of a phone scam going around involving the department.

According to a Facebook post by the lake-area department, someone has been using the department’s phone number to call around for donations to a Tri-County Fire District Christmas Ball.

The department said it is not doing this and it is a scam. They will never ask you to donate money over the phone or email.
