Bogus telephone calls
The Charity Commission has been contacted by a number of individuals who have received bogus calls from other individuals who have stated that they are representing the Charity Commission. The individuals claim to be from the ‘debt collection department’ of the Commission and they demand payments for various services and adverts.
The Commission does not charge for any of its services to charities, and it does not get involved in debt collection.
If you should receive calls from these people, you should immediately report these sorts of incidents to the Police. The Charity Commission would also like to be kept informed.
