In recent weeks, 2 male individuals have been unlawfully soliciting donations under the Hopeful Hearts nam
This has been happening throughout Ottawa, most recently in the Bells Corners and Crystal Beach areas of the city. These individuals are scam artists and are in no way affiliated with the charity.
Suspect #1 is a tall, thin, dark haired male.
Suspect #2 is a blonde male in his late teens or early 20s
One of the two suspects is going by the name of Jason.
Hopeful Hearts does NOT currently have any events where they are soliciting door to door. Should any individual come to your home or business soliciting money in the charity’s name, do NOT give them any. Please contact police immediately (Case # 14 – 266003) and/or notify Hopeful Hearts at firstname.lastname@example.org

If you notice anyone walking down the street checking car doors call the police immediately. These people are looking to steel from your cars and are looking for easy, fast access to valuables left in cars. The number to call for crimes in progress (non life-threatening) is 613-230-6211 Don’t worry, it’s toll free, make the call.
Know your neighbours so that if someone is at their doors you’ll know if he or she belongs there. If you don’t, a moving van could be next door and empty the house while they’re at work.
And that guy carrying the golf clubs out of the garage across the street, does he live there or is he helping himself to an open door?
