The Sick Children’s Trust has become aware of a Twitter account that is imitating our own. Using real-life stories and images lifted directly from our official social media channels, the fake @TheSickCT account has been promoting an illegitimate fundraiser in our name.
Not only are we deeply alarmed that our charity is being imitated on Twitter, we are also horrified that the stories and images of real families, who were supported by us at the most difficult times of their lives, are being used to deceive for financial gain.
We are doing everything in our power to get this Twitter page shut down and sincerely hope that nobody has been exploited by this attempted deception. We are extremely concerned about this situation and have reported it to the appropriate authorities.
Please do not donate or send any money to this account, it is in no way connected or affiliated with our charity. Thank you.
