Normal topicPossible Bogus Incidents - door to door callers

In recent days Police Scotland have received numerous calls from concerned members of the public in relation to person/s attending at their doors purporting to be from Alzheimer Scotland. Following enquiry with the charity they have issued the following statement in relation to this:

' Alzheimer Scotland are very proud of the support that we have built over the years and the many different ways that we, and our supporters, raise funds. However, there are some fundraising tactics that we do not believe in, or take part in. We do not conduct any door-to-door or cold telephone fundraising, and we would not condone this type of fundraising taking place on our behalf. We have had some very recent reports where someone has come to their door purporting to be from a dementia charity, and the householder has believed this to be Alzheimer Scotland. There are other charities in the dementia field who we know fundraise in this manner, but we wanted to reassure you that this is not in any way related to Alzheimer Scotland.'

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to email us anytime: info@alzscot.org or call us: 0131 243 1453 (Monday – Friday, 9am - 5pm).
