NMB warns of scammers claiming to be firemen

NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - There's a group in North Myrtle Beach that may be trying to take your money using a false story.

Pat Dowling, spokesman for the City of North Myrtle Beach said, "A firm using the name "Fire Safety Magnets" is trying to solicit funds from individuals and companies using the name of the North Myrtle Beach Fire Department. The minimum donation for a business is $500.00."

"THIS IS A SCAM. The North Myrtle Beach Fire Department is NOT sponsoring a fund raiser," he added.

If you think you have fallen victim to a crime, call the police.
