The Child Cancer Foundation has received reports that scammers are calling members of the public, falsely claiming to be collecting money for the foundation. The caller is reported to have a foreign accent and is calling from a call centre type environment because there are other voices in the background. CCF does not use foreign call centres. Please report any suspicious calls from people claiming to be collecting for the Child Cancer Foundation to the Scamwatch website: consumeraffairs.govt.nz/scams. The 2014 Child Cancer Appeal will be in March.
