I was in my gallery when a little old lady came in asking if I'd like to support the police. Of course I said yes and she asked if I'd like to put an ad in the Police diary. I was dubious but she persuaded me to place an ad. It was busy, and she made me feel very awkward. I asked her if she could wait 5 minutes so i could discuss it with my husband and business partner. She said she was in a rush. I asked for her number and she said she only did personal visits. I asked if she could come back tomorrow and she said she was about to go on holiday. So I signed the form she shoved under my nose, thinking I'd cancel the minute she'd gone, as I knew, by law I had a cooloing off period. The gallery was packed and when she'd gone i realised she hadn't left me a copy of what I'd signed. I went to the Police the next day - they were supportive and said the woman didn't have a leg to stand on. I've just received the invoice, which is strange as I haven't even told them what copy I want - not that I want to place an ad of course. It's ironic that this woman is using these sort of unethical pracices to promote the police! Don't have anything to do with this operation.
