Hi Charlotte,

I'm often amazed at the people in pubs who fall for the ' buy a rose for charity' scam..just because she wears expensive skin tight leather jeans, has a fabulous head of expensively streak blonde hair, tight fitting top and of course makes a bee line for the men.. waves a box under their noses with a piece of printed paper on it...

Then as Bridgie said gets into a large mercedes! One of these days I'm going to read up on the laws concerning collecting for charity!

Dear London SE1 Forum members

I guess we will all be on the look out for the woman with the roses. Any further sightings please send me a message to [email protected]

Thanks and kind regards.

Dear All

I have had an email direct to my email address ([email protected]) from somebody who has sighted our bogus collector again. He was seen in a pantomine costume at the Shakespeare Globe Theatre and said that he was collecting for Guy's Hospital in conjunction with Children In Need. He said that he was involved in a tennis match on 11th July. There is no such match going on. He was in the pub next to the Golden Hind and again in The Horniman.

I am informing the police about this but do be vigilent.

Kind regards.

Can we see the photo? I was brought up in Waterloo and my partner in Borough maybe one of us will recognise him?

Just an update following on from Al.W's post. The poor Irish guy's wife is STILL in labour and still being transferred from one hospital to another. He still hasn't got any diesal and desperately needs money to get some.

It was so funny - his routine is EXACTLY the same as how Al.W described it : running past, running back, checking you can speak English, mobile phone in hand etc etc.

Funnily enough even though I knew he was a con I still felt a bit guilty saying no. Still, he's a sneaky little git and local people should be aware of him... Last seen roaming Tooley Street.

the blonde has now dyed her hair and came in our local collecting on behalf on VMCA and plonkers still queued to give her their money...and they were warned...
