PHONE SCAM WARNING - FEBRUARY 4, 2014
To All North Island Residents: Recently some scam phone calls have been made to local residents which appear to have been made by the Regional District of Mount Waddington office in Port McNeill. We wanted to warn you that these calls are fraudulent and do not come from the Regional District - we do NOT ever make sales calls and we do NOT handle vacations, cruises, etc. If you receive a call which appears to be from the Regional District of Mount Waddington and the caller is offering/selling anything that seems too good to be true or requesting credit card or personal information: 1. DO NOT PROVIDE YOUR CREDIT CARD, OTHER FINANCIAL OR PERSONAL INFORMATION! 2. Contact the Port McNeill RCMP Detachment at 250-956-4441 to report the incident. 3. If you are unsure about the nature of the call, please end the call and phone the Regional District of Mount Waddington at 250-956-3301 or 250-956-3161 and speak to either Liette or Melissa to discuss your concerns.
