SCAM ALERT: CSFD warns of 'whiteboards' scam

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - It appears someone is trying to take advantage of community members wanting to support local firefighters in Colorado Springs.

The Colorado Springs Fire Department tweeted out a warning to the public Friday afternoon stating a company is trying to sell whiteboards in the name of "CSFD OR YOUR FIRE DEPT." The Colorado Springs Fire Department wants to make the public aware they are not affiliated with this alleged offer. The apparent scam isn't a new one, the letter sent out asking the public to purchase these items is associated with FireSafetyMagnets.com. 11 News tried to contact the number signed at the bottom of the letter and no one answered.

If you feel you've been a victim of a scam, contact local authorities.
