A quick call to the Charity Commission this morning confirmed what we suspected; there is not, and never has been, any charity by the name of the Lauren Forsyth Appeal. They advised that a report be made to the relevant police force.
I called Staffordshire Police, who took a report from me. They asked for the web site address and the name of the person that cheques were to be made payable to (YNWA Lauren, PO Box 556, NE28 7WZ). I also gave them the name and PO Box address of the ‘company’ involved (Koptalk.com, PO Box 556, NE28 7WZ… oh, hang on, they’re the same… silly me.)
I advised the police of the call made to Koptalk yesterday where one of our commenters asked Steve for the registered charity number and why the cheques were to made payable to Dunk’s mum, and also the response to that (phone slammed down and the removal of the website).
They are now looking into it and have my E-Mail address so that they can request more information from myself, which I will readily give them.
Hopefully, this will mean that something will be done. When I saw that Fatty was accusing some people, possibly ourselves, of threatening behaviour, I knew it was time to do something.
Dunk knows that all he needs to do is take the E-Mails to his local police station (which I’ve just called!) and they will be able to help him. However, it really would help his case if these E-Mails did exist.
