May 2009 Warning: Bogus Clothes Collectors operating in Creech 2009-05-21 16:18:23

Received from police beat community officer Lynsey Gamblin

Weds 27 May I received a flyer through our door from a company called Helpmates Limited offering to collect unwanted clothes at our door for distribution in the Third World some time Thursday 28 May.


We did some checking on the internet and it would appear this is one of a considerable number of bogus collectors around the UK collecting clothes for sale for profit, or worse still, as a front for theft of other property outside homes. The leaflet acts as an alibi, so to speak.


I include some links to give you an idea. I felt the Parish Council should be aware, as this has affected other similar sized towns, as you can see from this link. I believe these leaflets were delivered throughout the estate here.
