Warning triangle

May 2014+: Warnings by the Cystic Fibrosis Trust (CF) - Bogus collectors are using the charity's old-style bags (coloured red, white and blue).
The charity says that none of these collections are genuine - they're all bogus.
 
If you receive one of these bags, please immediately contact the charity and the police and try to get the collection intercepted.  If it's bogus, the clothes can be seized.
. . . and (if you have the time) please let us know about the collection.  Contact us
 
All the genuine bags are a new, different design - coloured  yellow .
Precycle are no longer the collectors; collections are by East London Textiles (ELT) )

Stop bogus collections

How to stop a bogus house-to-house collection...

. . . You need to act quickly - see the hands-on guide below

Charity shops raise 50 times more (per item) than house-to-house collections . . .

Taking your unwanted clothes etc to a charity shop raises around 50 times more money for charity compared with giving your clothes to a typical house-to-house 'charity' collector !

Two one-pound coins

  • House-to-house collectors:  Most of these are commercial companies - who give the partner charity only £50 or so for each tonne of clothes collected (a 'royalty').
    That's only 5 pence per kilogram (35 ounces) - that's the weight of a jacket or winter dress.
    [There's a thousand kilograms in a tonne.]
    Usually the company exports your clothes (especially to Eastern Europe - eg Lithuania) and they're sold for private profit.  The company sells the clothes for over £1,000 per tonne.
  • Charity shops:  By contrast, if you take the same item of clothing to a charity shop they'll sell it for around £10, of which over £2.50 is profit (=net proceeds) for the charity.  Also, you can increase this by 25% by using "Gift Aid"  

Do you want your item of clothing to raise only 5 pence for charity - or over £2.50 . . . ?

Worse still, around 50% of house-to-house collections are misleading/bogus/illegal.
... And fewer than 1 in 10,000 (=0.01%) illegal collections is prosecuted.
... And up to 10% of filled bags are stolen before the house-to-house collector arrives.

With CDs and DVDs, around 200 times more money is raised for charity by charity shops compared with typical house-to-house collections (10 cased CDs weigh 1 kilogram) :
A house-to-house collector gives only a half-penny (0.5p) per CD to the charity !
A charity shop makes almost £1 profit (=net proceeds) per donated CD or DVD

With jewellery, over 1,000 times more money (per item) is raised for charity by charity shops compared with typical (royalty-per-tonne) house-to-house collections.

There are over 9,000 charity shops in the UK - including :

  • Age UK, Autism Plus, Barnardo's, British Heart Foundation, British Red Cross, Cancer Research UK, Children's Society, CLIC Sargent, Dogs Trust, Extra Care, FARA, Headway, Marie Curie, Mind, Oxfam, PDSA, RSPCA, Salvation Army, Save the Children, Scope, Shelter, Sue Ryder, TRAID, YMCA; local air ambulance trusts, local cancer hospices.

If you can't take your donated goods to a charity shop, some shops are happy to collect them from your home - eg British Heart Foundation (BHF)  

For more information on how charity shops raise around 50 times more than collections, see the following :

How to stop a bogus house-to-house collection...

When you receive a suspicious "charity" clothing collection leaflet or bag, look at it carefully and refer to :
A-Z list of collectors  A-Z selection of collectors  Law on collections
How to tell: is the leaflet 'genuine'?  Fake collection leaflets
Is it 'charitable'? - does it need a licence?  Licensing: enforcement

If you think it's bogus and/or unlicensed, immediately telephone (or visit) the "authorities" (the regulators:

  1. Your local council's licensing department
    Refer them to the House to House Collections Act 1939 (the "1939 Act").
    Ask them:
       (a) Have they granted a licence for the collection? and
       (b) Has it got a 'National Exemption Order' (=NEO) - or see List of Exemptions
    If it's not licensed (or exempt) but it's indicating that it's in aid of a 'good cause' ("any charitable, benevolent or philanthropic purpose"), they can stop it (even if it's a commercial company and even if no charity is mentioned).
    Note: Good councils have a diary of licensed collections on their website.
  2. Your council's trading standards department (TSD) (via "Consumer Direct", now known as "Citizens Advice consumer service": tel 08454 04 05 06) - refer them to the Consumer Protection Regulations 2008, the Fraud Act 2006 and the 1939 Act
  3. The police (for example by dialing the new telephone number '101') - mention the three laws above - the police can assist the council(s).
    Also, the police may be able to take action themselves using the Fraud Act 2006.

hover to ENLARGE

If it's bogus, try to persuade these authorities (especially council licensing) to use their powers to intercept the bag collectors (with police help) in your area on the collection day (usually a couple of days later) :

  • the collectors can be interviewed - and the van can be searched
  • the collectors can be arrested (depending on the circumstances)
  • the bags of clothes can be seized (and given to local charity shops)
  • in some cases the van can be seized
  • the collectors (and/or the 'promoters') can be prosecuted and fined

Bogus leaflet: 'Air Ambulance Service' (AAS)
Above: Bogus leaflet

Some councils (eg NW Leicestershire Council) have successfully prosecuted unlicensed collectors just for delivering the leaflets or bags (='promoting' a collection) - using the 1939 Act.

You may need to give the authorities a copy of the leaflet or bag - you can send them images of it using (a) a computer scanner and email, or
(b) a camera on a mobile phone or tablet.

If you have the time, get your friends and neighbours involved, and contact your local councillors and Neighbourhood Watch.  Also you can assist the authorities on the day of the collection (so long as you act responsibly and cautiously).

facebook icon YouTube icon [128x128]

Spread the word via social media - Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, forums, blogs and the like.

Bogus collectors rely on ignorance, apathy, delay and lack of action.  Usually they collect the filled bags only two or three days after delivering their leaflets or bags.  The collectors expect people to take a while to contact the regulators (the council, police etc) - and they assume the regulators will be slow to react.  Prove them wrong.

A word of caution - leaflets which appear to be bogus may be genuine after all - and vice-versa (eg fakes).  Also, if you do want the collectors caught, you don't want to alert them to the possibility they'll be stopped.

If the collector is a dissolved company, this is an additional offence
- see the A-Z list of collectors page - eg RA & B Services Ltd, Rutex Ltd, W & W Help Ltd.

Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) logo

After the collection day, you can complain to the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) if you think the leaflet or bag was misleading.  See the A-Z list of collectors for over 30 examples of successful complaints.

Use the Bogus collections reporting tool   on the Charity Retail Association's website.
Write to your MP.  Contact newspapers.  Contact 'Company Investigations' (BIS)  

Theft of bags:  If you see anyone taking filled bags before the official collector arrives, note details (eg vehicle registration number and description) and ring the police immediately. Guidance from the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS)   states that it's theft.
