North Shore Rescue is out with a warning and this time it has nothing to do with being safe on the mountains.
If you’ve received a call from someone aggressively asking for donations towards North Shore Rescue, it’s a scam.
An online post from the team says in recent days people have been receiving calls.
NSR says the issue has come up from time to time over the years but want the public to know that the calls are not coming from its members.
The team says it does not solicit donations by phone and has never done so.
If you do receive a call asking for donations, the team is asking you to ask the person’s name, which organization they are from and then to call police.
