Just to make people aware, clothing collection bags from abc-vara claiming to be collecting for local schools is almost certainly a scam.

It is a newly registered company based in Leicester, and is already being investigated by Trading Standards in another area.

I would advise anyone to check whether the company concerned is a Registered Charity with a Registered Charity Number. This information is usually printed on the bags they supply you with, or the flyer they post.

They are not a registered charity, just a company.
