Scarborough: fake charity worker doorknocking in the area

A FAKE charity worker has attempted to swindle money from Scarborough residents.

Scarborough Police officer in charge Glenn Dowding said a resident had given money to an individual posing as a Radio Lollipop worker who was doorknocking.

Senior Sergeant Dowding said the incident occurred over the past two days but had only been reported today.

“Radio Lollipop has definitely not sent people out there,” he said.

“Any person collecting money will have identification. If they don’t, report it to police.”

More to come.
