The Moulton Fire Department and the City of Moulton is warning residents to be aware of a potential donation scam occurring in Lawrence County.
After a concerned citizen complaint earlier Wednesday, the Moulton Fire Department has confirmed an individual has been conducting door-to-door solicitations on behalf of the Moulton Fire Department in the Mount Moriah area along County Road 236 in Lawrence County.
This individual has no identification or affiliating documents representing the Moulton Fire Department or the City of Moulton.
The individual has been requesting $40 donations on behalf of the Moulton Fire & Rescue. The individual has been seen operating out of a small, older model truck that is red or dark in color, possibly a Chevrolet S-10.
The Moulton Fire Department does not solicit door-to-door donations, and any individual representing the Moulton Fire Department in an official capacity will always have proper identification/uniforms. All officially sanctioned Moulton Fire Department activities are coordinated through the City of Moulton and proper notice is given through the appropriate media channels.
The Moulton Fire Department urges all citizens to be aware and report any suspicious activity to local law enforcement authorities.
