Police: Solicitation calls from Rochester VFW a 'hoax and a scam'
ROCHESTER — Scammers are making phone calls claiming to be from the Rochester Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW), the Rochester Police Department warned via Facebook Monday.
According to the post, the VFW does not solicit by phone. Police are urging residents receiving calls not to give out credit card information to these callers, saying the solicitation is a scam.
It is never a good idea to give out credit card information to anyone over the phone, police further advised.
