We have been getting calls and emails that someone is using our non-profit society to try to scam people out of their banking information.

An email from PayPal (check the sender’s email address – definitely not PayPal but otherwise looks very real) comes in to say that you made a donation to “Penticton Dragon Boat Festival Society” for $116.00.  There is a link to click if you didn’t really make the payment and want the charges reversed.  We definitely did not charge you $116 for anything and the money never left your bank, so please don’t fall for it.
