Over the past few weeks, the Manitoba Chambers of Commerce has received numerous phone calls from both members and non-members about a series of phone calls soliciting information on our behalf.

The person(s) making these calls will ask if the company they are calling are still at their current location and if they completed their move. In some cases, the caller(s) ask if the company have found new rental space. People who have reported the calls to our office indicate the caller(s) is persistent, abrupt and when asked questions regarding the information request, will terminate the call unexpectedly. We have also been told the scam caller(s) have claimed to represent both the City of Winnipeg AND the MCC.

We would like to remind people that MCC does not solicit information through third parties and we don’t collect that kind of information, nor do we solicit that type of information. Another way to tell that the call is fake is by listening for a simple “s”. Many of the callers identify themselves as calling on behalf of the Manitoba Chamber of Commerce. We are the Manitoba Chambers of Commerce

If you receive one of these phone calls or have any doubts about a call’s authenticity, please take the number down (if one is available on the display) and report the calls to the MCC. We apologize for any inconvenience such calls may have caused.
