Telephone Scam Targets Nanaimo

Anti-bullying fraud 
telephone scam targeting Nanaimo

The Nanaimo RCMP wishes to advise the public of an anti-bullying telephone scam which has surfaced in Nanaimo.

The caller indicates he is representing the Nanaimo RCMP and is soliciting funds for an anti-bullying campaign. He asks specifically for $300. The intended target did not give the caller the requested funds and called to report the incident.

The Nanaimo RCMP does not solicit funds for crime prevention programs not does it solicit by telephone. If you receive a similar telephone call, please contact the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre toll free at 1-888-495-8501, Monday to Friday, 8:30 am to 5:30 pm Eastern time or online at
