The director and 9 employees of the company that distributes these DO NOT DELAY leaflets were arrested on 15 January for stealing donations from Great Ormond Street children’s Hosptial, Marie Curie Cancer Research and British Heart Foundation.

Do not delay is the name used on leaflets by a company called Intersecond.

It appears that these scammers are thieves as well as frauds. If you get one of their leaflets, report it to trading standards and if you see them stealing from other charities, call your local garda or police.

It is so very sad that these greedy thugs are preying on our charity and the fact we want to help real causes. Don’t let them get away with it. Give your donations to regular charities but watch out for these theieves.
