Southeast Iowa Fire Guard warning law enforcement about phishing scam

The scam uses the fire guard's name to request money

From Southeast Iowa Regional Fire Honor Guard Deputy Commander Eric Higdon:

The Southeast Iowa Regional Fire Honor Guard wants fire departments to be aware of a scam using the SEIRFHG name. Complaints started coming in last week from two fire chiefs in different areas in Iowa. Both chiefs received the same email asking to pay their bill. The Southeast Iowa Regional Fire Honor Guard does not use any source for collecting payments. If you receive an email for request to pay anything please notify your local law enforcement.

The Southeast Iowa Regional Fire Honor Guard is a professional support unit for Emergency Service Responders memorial events. The team assists fire, ems and law enforcement agencies with funeral and memorial service events. The team is strictly voluntary to serve, and are made up of fire, ems and law enforcement from the region.
