HEBRON – Hebron Fire Captain Ryan Wyse is warning Licking County business owners about a fundraising scam.
The department recently learned that an Illinois company – FireSafetyMagnets.com – is claiming to be raising money for the Hebron Fire Department. A Newark business owner told the department Tuesday that she had been called by the company asking that the company purchase advertising space on a fire safety magnet to help raise money for the Hebron department.
Wyse told The Beacon that no company has been authorized to sell advertising space on its behalf. He urged that anyone contacted by this company decline to provide any personal information or payment, and then call the department on its business line at 740-928-4721.
