A Winnipeg man faces fraud charges after some people in St. James and River Heights gave money to someone who claimed to be collecting door-to-door donations on behalf of CancerCare Manitoba. Investigators determined that the person was canvassing fraudulently and managed to obtain money from at least eight unsuspecting residents, police said.

A 38-year-old man was arrested on Tuesday and charged with eight counts each of fraud under $5,000 and failing to comply with a probation order. He has been taken into custody. It’s unclear how much money was collected in total, or whether any of the victims will get their donations back.
