Police said Tuesday it had received reports of people representing an organization claiming to collect money for a charity.
On Thursday, police said HopeCo is not a charity.
“(It is) a licensed business and is able to conduct door-to-door fundraiser,” police said in a statement.
“The SPS regrets any confusion caused by the initial news release.”
Police urge people to remain vigilant with door-to-door solicitation.
SPS said to ask questions and do research before making a donation.
Anyone believing they have been the victim of fraud can find reporting information online from the Saskatoon police economic crimes section.
