Bogus Charity Collectors
Published: 26 November 2018
We have been made aware of a number of reports of individuals knocking on doors allegedly canvassing for money for the Child Brain Injury Trust. The calls that we have received have raised concerns that strange questions were being asked.
We have been in contact with this organisation this morning. It is based in Oxfordshire, and does not carry out door to door requests for charitable donations.
Fraudsters use the name of genuine and often well known charities to obtain money, and sadly this becomes more common as we head towards the Christmas period. We advise residents not to buy at the door. If you wish to give to charity, please ensure that you are able to make an informed choice, in your own time and be absolutely certain that you are giving to a genuine cause.
