Volunteer Fire Companies Warn of Text Scam Using Their Names

Multiple Volunteer fire and emergency services companies throughout Baltimore County are warning the public about a fraudulent fundraising text message scheme.

Kingsville, Bowleys Quarters, North Point Edgemere and many other Volunteer fire companies shared the scam text messages.

None of the VFC in Baltimore County solicit donations or sell their merchandise through text messages.

Donations can be made on VFC’s website.

Anyone that receives a similar text message from a VFC is asked to contact that Volunteer fire company.
