Gardaí in Cavan have issued a warning to the public in relation to a charity scam

The Gardaí in Cavan have issued a warning to the public in relation to a charity scam that has been in circulation in the town.

A leaflet was distributed in and around Cavan Town on Monday which claimed to be collecting clothes and shoes in order to support a Breast Cancer Awareness prevention programme, stating that collections would take place today.

The documentation calls on recipients not to ‘Delay’.

However, the Irish Cancer Society have stated that the collection is in no way affiliated with them and Gardaí are asking people to disregard the leaflet if they received one.
