PITTSFIELD, Mass. (NEWS10) — We have a new scheme to warn you about. According to police, they’re getting a lot of reports about someone asking for donations to support to Pittsfield Fire Department.

Police say this is a scam and the fire department is not seeking any donations at this time.

Police say the caller says they need the money because the fire department is underfunded and needs help from the community.

The calls are coming from the same telephone number, 857-305-6580.

If you get a call like this, hang up and don’t hand over any money or personal information.

If you have any concerns, contact the Pittsfield Fire Department.
