Members of the public and householders across Longford are being urged to be vigilant following reports that bogus charity collectors are active in the county.

The ISPCA issued the warning when they were informed a bogus charity collector was allegedly operating on their behalf in the Lanesboro area on Friday, August 7 at approximately 7pm.

ISPCA spokeswoman Carmel Murray explained, “The young woman had no ID or permit and the ISPCA is asking to public to be vigilant and to contact Longford Gardaí on 043 33 50570 or the ISPCA on 043 33 25035 if they come across anything suspicious.”

Ms Murray pointed out that if anyone wishes to support the ISPCA, whose National Animal Centre is based in Kenagh, Co Longford, that they can make a secure donation online by visiting the website on www.ispca.ie
