There’s a letter going around Westmoreland County asking residents to give, if they can, to help the Mount Pleasant Volunteer Fire Company. It looks legitimate, until you look closer. “The questionable part was when you send a donation, [the letter said] send it to Kansas,” Mount Pleasant Fire Chief Jerry Lucia said.

The letter looks official, coming from the “Volunteer Firefighter Alliance,” headed up by someone named Alan Bohms.
