Second warning for today! Have we all gone rotten!? Now, a fraudster is going around tricking people into thinking he is collecting money to help Malta’s disabled community. And unfortunately, it looks like he has already pocketed hundreds of Euro in donations!!!!

The Commission for the Rights of Persons with a Disability said that at least one person was going round several different towns and villages asking for money, on behalf of persons with a disability.

Looking clearly at the picture, it is very evident that there are various spelling mistakes. One alarm bell on immediately, for me!
 

This person or persons, as it is not clear whether there is more than one; is asking people to donate money to help the ‘national association for children with a disability and deaf-mute’ raise money. No such organisation exists!!!! 

The Commission for the Rights of Persons with a Disability (CRPD) warned people to keep their wits about this. They have made it clear that they do not collect funds and do not authorise anyone to collect money on their behalf.
