Lafourche Parish Sheriff Craig Webre and the Lafourche Fire District #1 Volunteers in the Raceland area would like to make the public aware about a scam wherein citizens are receiving telephone calls soliciting for donations to the fire district. These phone calls are NOT authorized by the Lafourche Fire District #1 Volunteers, and in fact, the fire district does NOT make phone solicitations. Citizens should NOT provide financial account information to callers, nor mail payment to any address given on the phone call.
If you have fallen victim to this scam (or any other scam) and have lost money, please contact the Lafourche Parish Sheriff’s Office to report the incident at (985) 532-2255.
The Lafourche Fire District #1 Volunteers mail annual solicitation requests, and this year’s mailing is scheduled for June. In the meantime, legitimate donations to the Lafourche Fire District #1 Volunteers can be sent to: Lafourche Fire District #1 Volunteers, P.O. Box 427, Raceland, LA 70394-0427.
