SAULT STE MARIE, ONTARIO ~~~~~ September 25, 2020 (LSN) Recently the Sault Ste. Marie Police Service was notified of potential fraudulent activity regarding the Sault Area Hospital 50/50 draw fundraiser.
It is alleged an unknown man is calling people, telling them tickets are almost sold out and they must purchase tickets over the phone in order to participate. This is not how this fundraiser operates. This fundraiser is not selling tickets over the phone.
At this time it is not believed anyone has been a victim of this potential fraudulent activity.
We want to advise the public to never provide personal information to anyone you do not know, including banking and social insurance information. If you have any doubt about the legitimacy of the call, email or communication, hang up or do not respond. It is not rude, it is smart.
