Beware of United Way door to door scam

If you get a knock on your door from someone claiming to represent the United Way - beware, it's a scam.

Representatives with the Central and South Okanagan Similkameen United Way say they received reports Wednesday that someone was going door-to-door asking for donations in the Upper Mission area of Kelowna.

The charity issued a news release Thursday morning stating, "these solicitations have not been arranged or are in no way affiliated with the United Way.

The local RCMP have been alerted and suggest anyone with information contact them."

The United Way would like to remind the public that it does not engage in door-to-door solicitations and to please call their office at 250-860-2356 with any questions.
