Be wary of Lifeline calls

  • Print

Recently there have been a number of complaints about telemarketers contacting Headingley community members offering Lifeline services for free. Please be aware that these calls are not related to Victoria Lifeline and Victoria Lifeline suspects that they are a scam targeting seniors. These calls claim to offer free Lifeline services to seniors.


Victoria Lifeline has contacted the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre to do their part in reporting these calls and trying to stop scam artists from taking advantage of Canadians. However, it is important that the actual targets of these fraudulent phone calls also place reports to the Anti-Fraud Centre themselves.


If you have received such a call, please contact the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre toll-free 1-888-495-8501 or visit www.antifraudcentre-centreantifraude.ca
