A telephone scam being pitched as being associated with the Winnipeg Police Association has prompted a public warning.
The WPA says unsuspecting members of the public are being solicited to support a Winnipeg police magazine.
“Based on the information we have received to date the call is very misleading as it outlines a partnership/affiliation which does not exist and proceeds will not in any way benefit Winnipeg Police Association members or Winnipeg Police Association charities,” a statement read.
The WPA says if you receive such a call, do not make a donation, as funds are being collected without the consent or knowledge of the organization.
The only publication the WPA is associated with is the Manitoba Police Association yearbook.
