Cyprus Mail reports:
POLICE YESTERDAY warned members of the public to be wary of scam artists posing as religious or charitable groups.
According to police, a group of people are going around pretending to members of a church committee or charity selling pictures of negligible value for €50 or more.
Their target market is elderly people who often get duped into buying the pictures, said police.
The public is asked to be particularly careful and to report any suspicious incident to their nearest police station or the Citizen’s Hotline on 1460.
This assumes that religious and charitable groups aren’t scamming people out of money. And I, personally, find that debatable.
