The New London Fire Department issued a warning to residents Tuesday morning about a scam involving a fundraiser through the telemarketing company, Firehouse Promotions.
Fire department officials said the company is making calls saying they are with the New London Fire Department. The company is trying to sell white dry erase boards and saying the proceeds will go towards the Arizona firefighters.
The New London Fire Department is not connected with the telemarketing company at all.
Anyone who receives a call from Firehouse Promotions should contact the New London Police Department at (860) 447-5269.
