One of the latest scams that has hit the area involves a phony phone call from an unknown caller claiming to be with the fire department. The subject has evidently told several potential victims that they are raising money for Rutherford County Fire & Rescue.

Adding insult to injury, the scamster claims they are utilizing the donations to help individuals who lost their homes to a fire. However, the county fire department is not calling on citizens to make a donation, nor have they. The county said the unknown caller is not associated with the fire department.
