Hospice warns of false col­lec­tor

Horowhenua Chronicle - - NEWS -

Aro­hanui Hospice says they have re­ceived reports a man has been door­knock­ing in Levin falsely claim­ing to be col­lect­ing money for them.

The or­gan­i­sa­tion has ad­vised that it does not un­der­take door-to-door col­lec­tions and if some­one claims to be do­ing so on their be­half it is a scam.

“We ad­vise any­one who en­coun­ters some­one at their door ask­ing for do­na­tions to Hospice, to not give any money or de­tails, and to no­tify their lo­cal po­lice sta­tion,” a state­ment said.
