I own a company in Manchester UK and in January I got a call from a charity asking if I would like to sponsor a drug and alcohol awareness project in a local school, Where all the school pupils will get a drug and alcohol awareness book, a DVD, Colouring in book and some art stationairy. I agreed and paid £695.00 and nominated my sons school. Last week I got a Letter from Surry Police's Econonical fraud unit and Trading standards saying it was a scam. I went to the school and asked them if they had received anything and they hadnt. I was just wondering what your views are on conning in the name of charity and weather anything similar had happened to you
