Some of you may have seen posters in shops/banks/post offices etc warning of the bogus clothing collection schemes that are currently operating in this area. Just received this information from a council employee as I am the Neighbourhood Watch Co-ordinator for our street:
The bogus clothing collection scheme operated by Orellana Ltd have just distributed leaflets for collecting clothing etc from householders (to be collected on Monday). DO NOT donate any items to these people- they are on the council's list of bogus collectors and any money raised from articles donated go towards organised crime. By pure coincidence our street has just received leaflets from this company- they are orange and white in colour - A5 size and headlined with CLOTHING COLLECTION on the top. Please do NOT leave out anything to be collected by this company- it will not go to charity but to fund organised crime.

Two men were rounded up by the police on Monday collecting some of the bags in Georgetown! Apparently they wash the clothes donated and sell them on in the market to raise their dubious funds.

I have always been suspicious about these door step collections of clothing, toys and other items. I think to be on the safe side, it is best to take any unwanted clothes, toys e.t.c. into one of the many charity shops who would welcome them. Or altenatively you could always sell them at a car boot sale or on eBay?

I had a leaflet through my letterbox today. I've also put the info on the main news page.



Cae Posted - 03/03/2006 : 18:24:43
Yep- that's the one! They are targeting all the town though so everyone needs to keep an eye out for these leaflets.

Thanks for that Cae, my husband said that a leaflet came through our door - the house we are renovating. That's in the Georgetown area!
