IMPERSONATION IN SEEKING DONATIONS
TWC2 has been informed that during the first week of August, there have been people impersonating as staff and volunteers of TWC2, going door-to-door soliciting donations from other tenants at Golden Mile Complex where our office is located.
These individuals appear to be of various nationalities and dressed uniformly in blue polo t-shirt. They make specific reference to our unit number 09-86.
TWC2 has never and will never go door-to-door soliciting donations in such a manner.
We advice anyone encountering such individuals to ignore them and alert the complex MCST or call the police immediately.
“Heartbeat”, our next orientation session for potential volunteers is scheduled for Tuesday, 14 August 2018, at 7:30 pm. If you are interested in helping with the cause, please email the Administration Officer at firstname.lastname@example.org with the header “interested in volunteering”.
