Since the disaster and the floods, calls for donations have multiplied, solidarity is being put in place.
But watch out for crooks and scammers. Boraine police warn. “Unscrupulous individuals do not hesitate to take advantage of this climate of generosity to extract money …”
And to add: “An attempted scam was recently reported to us on Hornu where a call for donations was slipped into mailboxes. This is a handwritten, incorrectly written word with an account number.
The Boraine police therefore call for vigilance. “So that crooks do not get rich off your back, these acts must be reported to the police. “
