Green Cross is the major Swiss (internal) charity, they are legit.

They help the poor, have charity shops, offer discount dental services, ambulances, etc.

Yes, I now know, but not at the time. We already give to the Red Cross and Cancer Research, but they always send one of those pink slips. The idea of giving my bank details to somebody knocking on my door was a bit iffy for me.

Please Tom, don't ever put greencross and legit in the same sentence again. You absolutely have 0 clue in this matter.

Crikey, necroposting is apparently alive and well.

Nice to reflect on some of the ex posters here, when it used to be a lot more of a fun and jokey place to be...

Re: Door-to-door Salesman

Anyway, these dodgy door to door salesmen trying to sell a product that nobody wants to buy are now history.

Nowadays everybody has to pay and they call it Serafe.
