The Niagara Regional Police Service is NOT calling residents soliciting donations.

On Saturday, March 15th, 2014, police received a complaint from a St Catharines resident that they had received an automated phone call from the Niagara Regional Police Service soliciting money for bullying and cyber bullying.

The complainant received a call from an automated recording in a male’s voice. The male stated it was the Niagara Regional Police Service calling in regard to eradicating bullying and cyber bullying. The message then prompted the recipient to select donations in predetermined denominations.

The Niagara Regional Police Service Fraud Unit suggests that when considering a charitable donation, take time to research the validity of the charity. Donations can be made at any time, and requests should not be made under pressure.

The donor is urged to contact the charity directly. Verification of Registered Charities can be made through the Better Business Bureau, The Ministry of Consumer Affairs, and Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre at 1-888-495-8501.
