MOULTON, Ala. (WAFF) - The Moulton Fire Department sent a news release Wednesday warning about a potential scammer.

The department originally said an unidentified man was going door-to-door requesting $40 donations on behalf of Moulton Fire & Rescue.

The fire department later posted on social media that after further investigation, they learned that there are members of the Lawrence County Rescue Squad who were soliciting door-to-door donations.

Moulton officials said these members should appropriately identify themselves and provide affiliating documents representing this organization if requested.

“We still urge the community to exercise caution with any door-to-door solicitor, and should you have any concerns, report those to the appropriate authorities,” the post read.
