The Saanich Fire Department is warning residents about a phone scam targeting locals.
Residents have been receiving phone calls from scammers pretending to be the department in an attempt to solicit money from victims.
We have been notified from our #Saanich residents that they have been receiving phone calls from people pretending to be our department soliciting for money and giving fire safety information! We don't ask for money over the phone.
Please disregard these scammers!
