More door to door scams

Last week it was the United Way - this week, the Canadian Cancer Society.

A resident of the Hall Road area of Kelowna contacted Castanet Tuesday afternoon, warning people of a bogus canvasser in the neighbourhood.

According to the tipster, a single female was going door-to-door in the Hall Road area claiming to be with the Cancer Society.

"She does not have proper ID or paperwork. When I questioned her about it she ran off."

I have seen some of my neighbors hand over money and am worried they have been scammed."

A spokesperson with the Canadian Cancer Society says they do not currently have canvassers going door-to-door.

Their door-to-door campaign will begin in April.

Canvassers always carry lanyards and receipt books identifying them as legitimate Cancer Society volunteers.
