Do not call

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY VIEWS -

IT NEVER ceases to amaze me why, with all the warn­ings of phone scams, that char­i­ties con­tinue to phone peo­ple to do­nate to their wor­thy cause. I never do­nate over the phone as I do not know who is on the other end sup­pos­edly col­lect­ing for a worth­while cause.

It doesn't mat­ter if you are on the Do Not Call Reg­is­ter, or have a silent num­ber, they still con­tin­u­ally bom­bard you with their pleas for do­na­tions.

So far this week I have had two or­gan­i­sa­tions ask­ing for do­na­tions, maybe they are rep­utable, but their iden­ti­fi­ca­tion can­not be seen through the phone line.

So please, don't ring peo­ple for do­na­tions, door knock or rat­tle your tin in shop­ping cen­tres in­stead. Helen Worsley Proser­pine
