Union Gospel Mission is warning Manitobans of fake canvassers going door to door asking for donations.

UGM was recently notified by a donor in Mitchell, Manitoba that someone had visited their home claiming to be from the 'Winnipeg Chapter' of Union Gospel Mission.

The person who came to the door is described as a tall blonde man. He also presented the homeowner with credentials.

"We do not conduct door-to-door campaigns, or use language such as the 'Winnipeg Chapter," said UGM in a press release. "We hope by spreading the word, that people will not be inclined to give cash donations to anyone soliciting for UGM at their door."

Anyone who has someone come to their door claiming to be with Union Gospel Mission is asked to contact police immediately.
