Family wild over scammer

A CON MAN pretending to be collecting for a wildlife charity is door knocking in Mt Lawley, says WA ScamNet.

The organisation received a report that a 12-year-old boy answered the door to a man holding an iPad, who claimed to be either from Wilde Life or The Wilderness Society.

The man asked the child a number of questions before his mum came to the door and asked what charity the man represented and to see his ID. He refused to do either. Both wildlife charities told Consumer Protection that the man was not from their organisation.

World Wide Fund for Nature told CP they have door knockers in the Mount Lawley area, but they carry ID and wear a black polo shirt with a panda emblem.
