FAKE charity bags are being put through people’s letter boxes as part of a scam.

Many of the bags placed outside are stolen by gangs who research where legitimate charities are collecting and beat them to it.

The warning has been issued by Nottinghamshire Police Aid Convoy, chairman David Scott, said: “Unless people are completely happy with the small print on the bags they should not use them and should take unwanted clothing to charity shops or clothing banks at supermarkets and community centres, or ring the charity and ask them to collect.”
