Local businesses have been receiving calls from an organization that implies it is raising funds for the Roseville Fire Department. The business says it is selling magnets to support the Fire Department.
However, Roseville is not involved with this arrangement and is not receiving support from the Fire Safety Magnet Company.
When reviewing the website of Fire Safety Magnet Company, it states that fire departments “benefit by providing critical safety information to the community…..” We did a little research and found that the business is not BBB accredited.
Roseville thanks the local business for being alert to the possibility of fraud. They called the Fire Department asking if the city was taking part in this fundraising effort.
If you get a call from someone asking for donations, be cautious. We encourage you to collect information about the organization and then confirm that the information that they are telling you is true.
