    Default British Red Cross

    Just had a guy from the BRC on the phone asking for donations and wanting my bank details!

    I never do this, but i hung up on him as i don't like to give my details over the phone. But who does??

    You did the right thing, Red Cross will drop a flyer in the door if they want to canvass you, never give details over the phone unless you 100% know who your talking to, i.e you rang them on a number you know to be theirs.

    That's because she doesn't understand how much conning is going on right now, she comes from an era where if someone says they are Red Cross they actually are, I had a similar thing with an outstanding phone offer some time ago, I nearly went for it, but when the girl on the other end of the phone wanted bank details that should've been in front of her already as I'm already with the company she was pretending to be, I could hear the nearly landed it desperation in her voice, when I told her I wasn't giving anymore details she gave it straight up and put the phone down.

    Yes you did the right thing. If they wanted donations they could just direct you to their website. Flyers are the normal way or TV ad's
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
