Donation scam in Napier and Havelock North

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 22/05/2017

Police are appealing for information on a teenager who is doorknocking in the Napier and Havelock North areas, asking for money towards a school trip which does not exist.

The 16 or 17-year-old has been approaching people, many of them elderly, asking for money for a school trip to New York.

The young man, described as Caucasian, with dark hair, says he is from St John's College but is not wearing a school uniform.

He takes details from people he speaks to by noting them down in an exercise book.

Police want to know of other victims of the teen and hold him accountable for his actions.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Hawke's Bay Police.
