If you find a leaflet pushed through your letterbox from airambulanceservice.org.uk be warned it is not what it appears to be. We received them in South Staffordshire today but it seems that other parts of the country had them earlier this year.

It asks for donations of clothing and similar items, and even offers the chance to get an air ambulance service 'membership card' for the cost of a £5 phone call or text, but a little bit of research seems to expose this organisation as nothing more than a company that trades in used textiles.

more here. cut and paste..  http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?t=2653503


I am going to speak to a contact at our Air Ambulance EAA and also with the ed at Brandon Life asking if we can let residents know if a genuine bag will be going out.

part of the clue will be the    dot org address

Once again another leaflet from these scammers this morning. The East Anglian Air Ambulance are aware and have put their thoughts down on their website
