How do I report a fundraising/charity scam?

Scams and cybercrimes can happen to anyone, anywhere, at any time. Fake fundraisers can contact you through the mail, email, telephone, or by knocking on your door. They often claim to represent a charitable organization or give a name that may have a similar name to a legitimate charity. To report a scam contact the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre and file a report with your local police.
