Gardaí are urging the public to be vigilant against scams in the county.
They claim scammers are coming into shops looking to change large amounts of money, and short-change the shop assistant during the transaction.
Gardaí add a bogus charity was found operating in Killarney recently without a permit.
The scammer, who had a national charity’s logo and bib, had collected a significant amount of money before Gardaí intervened.
Garda Caragh Kelly says it is okay to ask for a charity collector’s documentation.
