Somone has reportedly been calling up people in the Cheyenne area, claiming to be part of a fundraising effort for local firefighters.

The calls are a scam, according to a post on the City of Cheyenne Facebook page, where the city has posted the following statement:

''We’ve had numerous people let us know that a new scam is targeting people in the Cheyenne area. People have been receiving calls asking for donations for local firefighters. Cheyenne Fire Rescue is not seeking donations and we would not be soliciting donations over the phone. Please do not fall for this. Do not give scammers your money.''
