Questionable phone calls

Tolland - posted Jan, 17 2012

The Tolland Fire Department has received several reports that questionable telephone calls are being placed to Tolland residents soliciting funds for firefighters. The Tolland Fire Department has not authorized anyone to make such calls on its behalf, and is not attempting to raise funds in this manner. Residents who receive a call asking for money to support firefighters should question the caller carefully about the exact name and address of the organization soliciting the funds. Residents should not give out any personal financial data to anyone over the telephone. Questions or complaints about any suspicious telephone solicitation can be directed to the Consumer Protection Division of the State Attorney General’s office in Hartford by calling 860-808-5318.
