A bank fraud is going around different peace groups.

In early September, the Network for Peace spotted a mysterious new direct debit in its bank accounts. It was made out to ‘BG Services’, for just over £22.

Then we found two direct debits, each for a similar amount, also for ‘BG Services’, in a PN bank account.

The same thing was found in Christian CND’s bank account.

Our admin worker, Claire Poyner, says: ‘The small amount is presumably in the hope that most people won’t notice it. So, everyone, check your bank accounts ASAP!’
