Someone obviously didn’t think this was a genuine charity and phoned it in, which is exactly what we want to see. No genuine business or charity will mind you carrying out your own enquiries or calling An Garda Síochána. If a person calls to your door offering you professional trade services, selling goods or collecting for a charity and you are worried they are not bona fide, tell the caller that you never deal with people who ‘cold call’ to your door. Ask for a brochure or documentation so you can carry out checks and verify their credibility. We always want to hear if there are people in the area who may be offering goods or services that are not genuine so don’t be afraid to pick up the phone and call us ’ NewsCrime & CourtTwo men arrested linked to bogus charity collection in LimerickBy Staff Reporter – February 8, 2019 2262 Email WhatsApp
