Donation Request Scam Alert
Warning! Scam Alert!
Residents of Plainview, Old Bethpage and many other Fire and EMS districts have been receiving in their US Mail a request for donations from the Volunteers Firefighters Alliance (VFA).
This organization is not endorsed by the Plainview Volunteer Fire Department nor any other organization in Nassau or Suffolk Counties to collect monies on their behalf. None of the monies collected by the VFA ever reached any NY or Long Island Organization.
Unfortunately this mailing comes to our residents at the same time as our annual fund drive mailing. The Plainview Volunteer Fire fund drive mailing is clearly marked with our logo and a return address in Plainview, NY 11803.
The attached photo is an example of the misleading donation request from the VFA.
Call us or message us if you have any concerns regarding our fund drive authenticity.
Stay Alert, Stay Safe
