The Cedar Rapids Fire Department is now warning residents of a person or group using Cedar Rapids Fire Department t-shirts to scam people around town.
The department says they are not currently selling t-shirts or calling for donations to any fund. They advise if someone in the group reaches out, do not give out your information. Delete their message and move on.
An Iowa's News Now employee received what appeared to be one of the texts in question on Wednesday morning.
It has a link claiming to offer a $10 discount for a shirt.
