More Suspicious Callers

There is a report that two girls were calling at houses yesterday claiming to be working for a deaf children's charity. They are asking for bank details and when challenged said they were licensed by the police. They did not offer any official identification. This is unlikely to be legitimate and I would urge extreme caution. All legitimate fund-raisers are required to carry official identification and authority. I would advise anybody NOT to give their bank details to cold-callers. Most charities now have well-publicised methods for making donations directly to them which is a much safer way of supporting worthy causes.
Please report any suspicious activity to the police on 0115 222 2222
