LAFOURCHE PARISH, LA (WVUE) - The Lafourche Parish Sheriff's Office is warning residents of a scam involving Fire District #1.

Sheriff Craig Webre said someone is calling residents and asking for donations to the district. He said the calls are not authorized by the district, and residents should not provide financial information or agree to mail payment to any address given during the call.

"The Lafourche Fire District #1 Volunteers mail annual solicitation requests, and this year's mailing is scheduled for June," according to a news release. "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."

If you sent money to someone using this or any other scam, contact the Lafourche Parish Sheriff's Office at (985) 532-2255.
