Eugene (KMTR) – Womenspace directors say someone has been calling local residents claiming to represent the non-profit, soliciting false donations. One woman told the organization a man called her asking for banking information.
Womenspace reps say they never cold call as a fundraising tactic, and would never ask for a donor’s financial information over the phone, unless that person called the organization wanting to donate. They say if you receive a call from anyone claiming to be from a non-profit organization, check the facts before you give. Look up the group in the Yellow Pages or 411, and call the registered phone number to make sure you’re not dealing with a scammer.
