Phone Scam Alert

Phone Scam Alert!




It has been brought to our attention that there is another possible phone scam related to MDC and Fire Fighters currently targeting Canadians. We are investigating this matter urgently and as always, encourage anyone who has concerns to contact MDC directly.

This is not anyone associated with Muscular Dystrophy Canada. MDC does not solicit funds via the telephone or telemarketers. We have notified the authorities and we recommend that if you did give a credit card number over the phone you contact your credit card company immediately.
