Police advising public of door-to-door scam

Lethbridge Regional Police are advising the public of a fraudulent door-to-door scam.

On Sept. 1 police responded to a citizen complaint in the area of Sheridan Place West reporting a fraudulent door-to-door canvasser. It was reported that a Caucasian male had been going door-to-door seeking cash donations for the Girl Guides of Canada. The male has been positively identified by Police and this matter remains under investigation.

The public is reminded that the only legitimate door-to-door campaign undertaken by the Guides is their annual sale of cookies – the Guides do not seek cash donations. All such solicitations are fraudulent.
