Dublin Fire Brigade warns about scam artist posing as firefighter in pubs

The man is claiming to be raising money for a charity boxing match, all in aid of Pieta House.

DUBLIN FIRE BRIGADE has warned about a scam in which an individual is posing as a firefighter collecting money for charity in Dublin pubs.

The man is claiming to be raising money for a charity boxing match, all in aid of Pieta House.

DFB took to Twitter to warn people not to donate any money to the scam artist.

A number of Twitter users replied to say that they had fallen victim to the fraud recently.

The hoax first came to the DFB’s attention in April but the man has continued his scam since then.

DFB say that they never fundraise or collect in pubs and have asked that anyone who is approached by this man to alert the bar staff so they can contact the gardaí.

The Dublin Fire Brigade only recently warned businesses about a scam in which an individual offers advertising space in a publication they claim they are producing on behalf of the organisation.
