Beware of door to door frauds

Beware of this fundraising scam:

The Edmonton Police Service is passing on this warning about fake YESS fundraising schemes. “Youth Empowerment & Support Services is warning residents of Edmonton and surrounding areas after it received a number of calls from the public reporting individuals using fake door-to-door fundraising schemes soliciting funds on behalf of the agency.
The individuals reported are selling food products in packaging branded with YESS’ logo and colours and had debit machines to process debit and credit card payments. These individuals do not represent YESS nor does YESS receive any benefit from their activities. YESS does not raise money by conducting any kind of door-to-door or telephone solicitation. Learn more at http://www.yess.org/

Suspicious fundraising activity should be reported to police by calling 780-423-4567 or #377 from a mobile phone.
