Stroke Association of Victoria Inc. has been made aware of a scam whereby a person from a so-called donation
collection company is claiming to represent SAV Inc. Contact is made by telephone and a request is made for a
donation to his company for direction to SAV Inc.
Alternatively, a business person may be prompted to support SAV Inc. by placing
an advertisement in a nominated magazine.
The person also makes a point of mentioning the name of our Secretary in order
to validate his request.
SAV does NOT contact anyone by telephone to solicit donations, neither have we
contracted any organisation to do telephone
canvassing on our behalf.
If you wish to make a donation to support us with our work please use the options
