Fake Charity Bags

I have been alerted by a blog reader to a charity bag scam. Apparently the Cystic Fibrosis Trust charity bags that have been distributed in Worcester Park are in fact false. Those she left out to be collected were not collected, and after calling the number printed on the sack they got back to her and said they were bogus. The number printed on the bags does go through to the right people (the commercial partner they use) but when they called her back they said they are not operating in Worcester Park at the moment. These are the white bags with the blue writing. The charity has reported it to police. People wishing to donate can call and sacks will be sent out in a couple of weeks.
