This lady came to my house. Said she had forgotten her ID and paperwork.
She said she lived on Boyds Walk. Promised to drop off paperwork about donating online.
Claimed to be raising money for a Deaf charity. She never came back.

She came to mine and told me her and her daughter are raising money for an epilepsy charity and Manchester evening news would match what she raised and she was near the £1000 mark ,as epilepsy has affected my family I stupidly donated I'm gonna be pretty p#$$ed if it's a con �� Also my neighbours donated .

She came to my house said she was collecting for charity and hoping to raise £500, said they were 100 short and that Lloyd bank said they would match it if she got to her target. Stated she lived on Boys walk. She first came in the day and had a young girl with her then I saw her on her own coming back in the evening to neighbours houses who hadn't been in in the day.

Also been on high street saying she had done a sponsored walk round some local reservoirs asking for sponsorship after the fact, had some tmbc id round her neck said she lived a few houses up which i know she diddnt, holding a scruffy pile of a4 with scrawl on it. Refused point blank then she asked me to like some facebook page. Set all sorts of alarm bells off and diddnt feel right at all

Yes had this lady on Harold Ave, came to my house and my mums, she was very intimidating,i questioned what it was for she said an Asthma charity, said she'd come back with more info, told her not to bother,but gave her £2,just to get rid of her.
How's she going to be stopped...?

She came to my house asking for money because her and her daughter ran a few laps round dovestones and she wanted sponsoring. No money was given.

She called at my house on Birch Lane dukinfield a week or so ago claimed she was collecting for charity and her daughter was shaving her head scum bag.

She came to my house on the Cotton Mills estate off Ashton Road last weekend that is the second time she has come round in the last week, saying she and her daughter had walked around dove stones and her daughter had her hair cut off for princess trust and Lloyds were going to match there amount and they were only about 40 off the total.

She came to mine about 4 weeks ago, said she was trying to raise money to reach a target for a charity event. Can't remember exactly because I just said no thank you and shut the door. She told me she lived round the corner on Dewsnap Lane. ��

She came To my house said her and her daughter had run round dove stones and if she was to collect 500 HSBC would match it, pouring down with rain too, husband didn't give any money but she said she lived across the road pointing to the direction of boyds walk. We're on the kingsbridge easte

She told em the same story about dove stones about a month ago luckily I answered the door and not my grandma. She was wearing at hat on that day. Said she has run a lap around dovestones for some charity and lloyds would match it. I said we don't have change on us and she said well I will come back another day or she said I will post a leaflet through the door about it. Never got anything.

I know her she has a child at my son's school. I was stood next to her yesterday she was flicking through her phone she couldn't keep still, she's often late at school with her child she always seems agitated as if she is on something that's probably why she is trying to con money out of people to feed her habit

Came to our house on Harold Ave about 3 weeks ago. Said she lived on Sandy Lane. Had a number of papers with "signatures" on. Said she'd done a sponsored walk with her daughter for epilepsy charity which could be match funded by Lloyds bank but £20 short. I gave her £2. Looked like the woman on the video.

Came to my house dukinfield giving the same story of doing a charity walk around dovestones with her daughter and she was a few quid short of their target! Gave her some money stupidly ... let her come knocking back again she will get more than just the door slammed in her face! Cheeky cow.. nothing more disrespectful than something like this!! Scumbag!! When there's genuine charities out there who desperately need funding and you get the likes of this waste of breath taking advantage for her own gain!! I'm a great believer in Karma one day it will come to find her!!

John Taylor said...

these people do so much damage to the genuine volunteers that work to get charities much needed cash I never give cash now to anyone unless I know them and know its 100%

She came to my house about 2 weeks ago, saying she was collecting for a charity, for disabled
children in Dukinfield, she had some paperwork and ID, which I stupidly never checked, she said Lloyds
bank, was matching donations, I gave her some money, then after she had gone, I sort of realised I'd
been scammed

Have the police caught up with her yet? everybody who has been conned by her look her up on Facebook you will recognise her. Her name is mentioned a couple of times in the above comments.

If she has children living with her (which is likely considering we know she has taken a young girl out with her and talks about her daughter) then I think passing her potential address so publicly was a silly thing to do. What if she doesn't live at that address and the actual owners get abuse? I'm just as outraged as all of you but either give personal information privately to John or the police. Declaring details is just asking for trouble and could jeopardise the case.

I got scammed by this woman weeks back, said she was doing a run for charity and I gave her cash!
This is disgusting and she needs stopping and reporting before I get to her myself!!😡😡😡😡

To my shame and embarrassment this woman is my daughter. She had been collecting for charity when her daughter had her hair cut but then decided to use some of the donations to feed her addiction. She will be paying all the money collected to The Princes Trust, that I will guarantee. Social Services are involved with the family and she is also under referral to Lifeline who are helping to get her rehabilitated. Id like to thank John Taylor for exposing her publicly and hope she learns how damaging her actions are for genuine charities. All of her own family feel absolutely shocked and ashamed but we are all working together to put it right.

The case is logged with the police number 565, 07/07/2017.They have not yet been in touch but will probably still be gathering evidence to build their case, I don't know why my previous comment came up as 'anonymous' , I'm logged in through my google account.

A few months ago this woman came to my house and said her infant son had hit his head and that she needed money for taxi to go to The hospital. I gave her The money, she promised to bring it back in a couple days and it she hasnt ever given it back. Later on i found out that nothing happened to The child...

I fell for it! I am so gullible and feel angry about it today! I will not be doing this again now, which is a shame because I know there are genuine people out there doing amazing things for charity. The other thing that makes me angry is that I live on a street which is mainly elderly people, and it's unlikely that this age group have access to the internet or social media so how can you warn other areas like mine about her and other potential con-artists/fraudsters!
She actually came to my house twice! A few days after I had made a donation she came back and said she missed me a few days ago when she called. I reminded her she hadn't missed me and I had given her money! She told me her daughter had shaved her head and had been sponsored to do this, she also said they had a target to reach and it would be matched, so she was just asking the neighbours, I thought she must live on the street and I guess that's why I decided to stupidly donate. I'm so glad she called at your house Mr Taylor, and now I hope justice can be done! I've shared on Facebook, the more people who are warned, the better. I was contacted by the local PCSO last night and until I saw this I was still hoping my caller had been genuine and it was just a coincidence! I feel so stupid now!
