SOSAD say the collectors have no affiliation to their charity
A local charity has warned people in Dundalk to be vigilant of fraudulent collectors going door to door collecting money in the Toberona and Louth Village areas.
In a Facebook post on Monday (March 12th), local suicide prevention charity SOSAD warned: "It has been brought to our attention that someone was going door to door yesterday in the Toberona area collecting for SOSAD."
The charity warned: "Please be aware that this person is not collecting on our behalf and we do not do door to door collections. If you are approached to donate to SOSAD and you are not sure of the person's validity please do not give any money and contact our office and we will be able to advise whether the person is legit or not."
A SOSAD representative posted an update on Monday evening saying: "Following on from our earlier post, we've been made aware that two young people were collecting in Louth Village also. Please do not give any money to anyone collecting door to door for SOSAD. They are fraudulent collectors. We will be reporting this to the Gardaí."
SOSAD's is a Dundalk-based charity who aims to help prevent suicide and improve the lives of all people affected by depression and suicide.
