'Charity' callers stole OAP's cash

PEOPLE living in the Mount Merrion area have been warned about bogus charity callers after an elderly lady had some cash stolen from her home.

Two young girls called to her property asking for donations to a charity and when the woman stepped inside to get her purse some cash was taken from another room of her house.

"She was very distressed about it," a source said.

"It's very important that people living alone are extra vigilant to people calling. You really can't be too careful these days."
