AUBURN, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) - The Auburn Fire Department is warning the public of a potential scam involving a haircut organization.
The department says the Booker T. Washington Center was recently approached over the phone to host a ‘Hair Kut A Thon’ where local children could get free haircuts on Saturday, Dec. 16.
The Center is not affiliated with the business promoting the event and they will not be hosting it.
The organization has supposedly been visiting local businesses requesting donations, using a form with the Booker T. Washington Center’s logo attached.
The BTW Center has not given them permission to do so.
The Center says they have not been visited by the organization to fill out a building rental application.
They advise that locals do not give this organization money.
