The London Professional Fire Fighters Association is warning residents of fraudulent phone calls asking for donations on behalf of the organization.

John Hassan, president of LPFFA, says a London man received a high pressure phone call from a blocked number asking for money.

When the man did not cooperate, the male caller transferred him to a woman. He hung up on the caller when he realized it was not a legitimate call.

Hassan encourages anyone who receives a call like this to contact the police.

He asks that if you have relatives who are not on social media to contact them and let them know about the scam.
