10/07/2017 Charity bag scam

Warwickshire Trading Standards is warning householders to beware of scam charity bag collections taking place in Warwick District. The bags, which primarily ask for clothing, claim to support well known cancer charities. However, these charities have confirmed that they don't use these sorts of bags.

If you are giving to charity, ensure that the charity bags you are using are genuine. Look for the registered charity number and if in any doubt, contact the charity concerned. Otherwise, donate via a charity shop.
