Money Collection -- Scam



(Ottawa) — The Ottawa Police Service is informing the public 
attempts to get the victim's credit card number.

The Ottawa Police would like to remind the public that we 
do not solicit donations from the public.

The Ottawa Police Organized Fraud Unit is advising the 
public that have been victims of this scam to contact the 
Ottawa Police and make a report.

It is the time of year when many fraudsters use the 
generosity of people to solicit "charity" donations that are 
not legitimate.  
If you want to make a donation to a particular 
charity, do so directly through their legitimate website or 
by phoning them directly. 

Anyone with information regarding this type of fraud is 
asked to call Ottawa Police Fraud Section at 
613-236-1222, ext. 5162. 

Anonymous tips can be submitted by calling Crime 
Stoppers toll-free at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS), or by 
downloading the Ottawa Police app.
