Fraud Alert: Telemarketing

Posted on 17.12.2015 in the General category

It has come to our attention that a telemarketing scheme is referring to the Hawkins-Gignac Foundation for CO Education as part of a fraudulent special offer for free telephone services.

Please be advised that the Foundation does not use telemarketers to contact the public, never uses toll-for-service telephone numbers, and never sells products over the phone.

In the event you receive one of these calls, hang up immediately, never divulge information, and never use call return.

Contact your local police to file a report if you wish the matter to be investigated.  You may also report the telephone call to The Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre, a Federal agency that collects information and maintains a repository for fraud analysis at 1 (888) 495-8501 or www.antifraudcentre.ca.
