Avoid fraud: How to protect yourself

CAPEC - (Cameroon Association for the Protection and Education of the Child) is deeply concerned about the fraudulent use of our name and logo by unethical individuals who deliberately abuse the trust of CAPEC supporters worldwide. Following are details on how fraud is perpetrated - and how to help protect both CAPEC and yourself from its potential serious consequences.

Fraudulent offers

We have received reports that imposters may now be using CAPEC’s name - and our hard-earned credibility - to solicit members of the public via websites, e-mails and phone calls.

These abuses have been brought to the attention of CAPEC. We are alerting the general public in an effort to ensure that people do not become victims, and are lured into providing their personal contact details.

Please be advised that websites, e-mails and telephone calls offering Volunteering or prizes on behalf of CAPEC are fabricated and fraudulent. Only CAPEC is authorized to send communications or appeals to the public in CAPEC’s name.

All CAPEC volunteers pay the sum of 400euro to cover their cost of stay while in Cameroon.
