Phoned the station last night and asked for the beat officer. I was put through to an office and left a message on an answer machine but no one has got back to me......yet.
I`ll leave it till tomorrow evening then try again.
I know how frustrating this as I have been around the houses with it in the same way you are. Please keep persisting. I have fed it in to the system through the Community Wardens who have an office on the Guy's Hospital site.
This scamster... funny, but the people here must be wise.
Someone take his picture, stick it on a stick and walk up and down the s bank to alert non users of this forum. It's little point bleating about him here..........
by the way, my car..............
ps. i love this site
Apologies for 'butting in' but I often volunteer as a charity collector and I just wanted to ask you not to tar us all with the same brush - it is a very tough job and brings in lots of money for the charity.
The case you are discussing is clearly bogus, which is very distressing, but i realised while reading the comments that it is hard for people to distingish between the real and bogus collectors on a general basis. Legally anyone collecting (or claiming to collect) for Charity in the UK must carry a copy of a "Street Collections Permit" it is issued by the local council and specifies where, when and for whom they are collecting. You are perfectly entitled (and recommended) to ask to see this before donating - and if they refuse please do call the police!
Sorry if that is off-topic and not of interest to most, but felt i had to add...
