Hey Donncha,

Nice set of information there on the charity scammers. FWIW – An actual friend of mine works for Enable Ireland. They also do these door-to-door collections, dropping bags through letterboxes and collecting them some days later. He has told me that they are finding it increasingly difficult due to the actions of these scumbags. Just last week, they were collecting bags in a particular Cork City suburb, when they were approached by a number of men driving old beat-up transits. These charmers proceeded to slash the tyres of the van used by Enable. They also threatened my friend and the volunteers who accompanied him – telling them ‘This is our effing turf – now eff off’. The nice boys in question were a mix of Corkonian scum, Dublin scum and some foreigners, showing that scumbagetry is an equal opportunities employer.
