The Anderson County Sheriff's Department is warning the community that someone is posing as a member of the fire department in an attempt to scam money from homeowners.
Officials say the scammer went door-to-door on Old Edgemoor Road trying to solicit money by telling the residents that if they do not pay, the fire department will not respond if there is a fire.
Two residents reported the scammer. The residents say they did not pay him because they thought the situation was suspicious.
The sheriff's department says it is investigating the incidents as attempted fraud.
No description of the suspect is available.
