Charities warn of phone scam in SaskatchewanTwo charities have issued a warning about a phone scam in Saskatchewan. The Heart and Stroke Foundation and the Canadian Diabetes Association say a company is attempting to sell automated external defibrillators, medical bracelets and/or other medical emergency monitoring systems. The fraudsters claim the products are endorsed by the American Heart Association or American Diabetes Association. The charities say they are not affiliated with the company and do not use telemarketing to sell products. Police and phone busters have been alerted to the scam. The charities are asking anyone who receives a call from either senior safety alert, senior emergency care or senior safe alert to call their local police detachment or phone busters at 1-888-495-8501
