La Ronge Residents Warned About Telephone Scam

The La Ronge RCMP is warning the public of a scam reportedly taking place in the community.


Staff Sgt. Kirk Munro says community members have been receiving telephone solicitations which claim to be collecting donations for the RCMP.


Munro notes the RCMP usually does not raise funds in that manner, and certainly isn’t doing it now.


He says community members must be cautious of this type of call, noting it has been seen in this province before.


Munro says it is up to those being called to decide the merit of the call.


He also points out that the RCMP can’t be held responsible for any money lost to this scam.
