The Nanaimo branch of the B.C. SPCA is warning people to be on the lookout for fake raffle tickets being sold under the guise of raising funds for the organization.
A photo of a fake ticket was posted on the Nanaimo SPCA’s Facebook page today along with this warning;
” We are sorry to have to report this, but wanted everyone to know.”
“There is an individual or individuals selling fake raffle tickets in Nanaimo.”
“They do not represent us, and this is not an actual raffle!”
The tickets selling for $2 each or 5 for $7 purport to be for a November 1st draw and list three prizes including a Samsung 42″ flat-screen TV.
A resident in the Cedar area wrote that two men described as “scruffy” came to her door tying to sell the same tickets described by the SPCA and that she’d informed the RCMP.
