Man falsely claiming to be from CC Society

Residents are asked to be on the lookout for a man supposedly canvassing for the CCS

The Canadian Cancer Society (CCS) is warning supporters not to hand over donations to a man claiming to represent the organization in Mission.

“We’ve had reports from three different people saying a phoney canvasser is going door to door asking for donations,” said Carissa Halley, the CCS team lead of annual giving.

The man has photocopied receipts from CCS with the tracking number blacked out, she added.

The incidents took place last week near Badger Avenue, and again near Dann Avenue a couple of days later. The residents who reported the canvasser were aware CCS only goes door to door for donations in April, said Halley, adding police have been contacted, and the suspect is described as a young male, clean shaven and carrying a backpack.

Anyone who has been approached by this suspect is asked to call the RCMP.

If you would like to make a donation to the CCS, visit cancer.ca, or the local CCS office on First Avenue.
