A neighbour has reported what may be a door-to-door scam, so please be on your guard.

A very friendly young black man has been calling on doors in Fawnbrake Avenue.  He introduces himself as from the Football Club in Brockwell Park. He had a clipboard in his hand. On introducing himself by his first name he offers a handshake. His initial pitch is to ask if there are any kids in the house who are interested in football. If you bite he asks for money. He is very plausible. Several residents have been stung. If you show no interest he does not hang about.

We have checked with Ann Kingsbury (ex-Lambeth Councillor) now with the Brockwell Park Trust and she checked with the St Matthew’s Football club who use the park. They state by email that they have no knowledge of this gentleman and it is not the sort of thing a reputable club would do. They suspect a scam.
