We've recently had a young girl calling at our house in Balham, collecting money for a sponsored walk. She claims that we sponsored her £20 in the New Year but couldn't collect the money before the event so is returning having completed the walk to collect funds for the British Red Cross. She has a long list of sponsors (all £10 or £20) by name and street (including mine) and a certificate saying she has raised nearly £8,000.
I have no recollection of sponsoring her and would not usually give that much money to a cold caller so am slightly perplexed by the whole thing. She has since returned two more times and been fairly forceful about trying to collect the money, saying she is soon to be returning to university so would like it now.
I just wondered if anyone else in the area has had a similar experience?
