We were contacted this week by a person who received a phone call from someone representing themselves as associated with Gathering for Women (GFW). The caller said GFW was raising money for breast cancer research and tried to get the person to give a credit card number.
GFW IS NOT INVOLVED IN ANY SORT OF PHONE SOLICITATION AND WE WOULD NEVER USE COLD/RANDOM CALLS SUCH AS THIS FOR FUNDRAISING.
The best practice when getting a suspicious call is to hang up. You should never give personal or credit card information under these circumstances and should always check the credibility of a nonprofit fundraiser through other valid sources.
