From time to time, Colgate-Palmolive Company learns of people falsely claiming to represent Colgate in solicitations for a bogus promotion or sweepstakes. As part of the scam, consumers must make a payment in order to claim a prize. When we learn of these instances, we report them to the appropriate responsible authorities.
The Colgate-Palmolive Company would never ask consumers for money as part of a promotion. Unfortunately, however, it is not uncommon for popular consumer brands such as ours to be used as part of a scam.
If you suspect that you have been targeted, please contact the Federal Trade Commission by calling 1-877-FTC-HELP (1-877-382-4357) or online at their Consumer Response Center, where you can also find information on how to identify a telephone scam.
