It says the fraudulent solicitors appear to be seeking donations and also claim to be selling “memberships” on behalf of the CMHA.

The association says the fraudsters are reportedly wearing “official-looking clothing” and are carrying a wireless debit machine as they ask people to sign up for monthly deductions.

The CMHA says no one should give the phoney solicitors their financial information.

Anyone who gets a visit from the fraudsters is being asked to turn them away and report the incident to local police.
