New scam from the cops?

Post by joelightcloud »

I was visited today by 3 gentlemen who pulled up in a nice new police SUV, two local police and one military saying I needed to buy a fire extinguisher and showed me photographs of different types of extinguishers.

I said I didn't need one, they said your neighbor cooperated with us I said that was nice but I still didn't need one. I closed the gate, they said they would be back. I said ok then.

You have to have a fire extinguisher if you are a business or you rent rooms to non family members. you do not have to buy them from the polce, there are approved ones available on the open market. For my own safety, given the number rof electrical fires in this country, i like to have one in my room that can deal with electrical fire
