Be Aware of Scam Artists in Dubrovnik

Written by  Sep 13, 2023

The Association of Deaf and Hard of Hearing of Dubrovnik-Neretva County, prompted by repeated calls from concerned citizens regarding fundraising activities on the streets of Dubrovnik have reminded people that:

- These individuals are not associated with the work of the Association or with other associations of persons with disabilities in Croatia.

- They are not deaf individuals, nor are they collecting money for deaf individuals.

- They are falsely representing themselves.

These scam artists, usually two women, have been approching people in and around Dubrovnik asking for donations. They have also been reported in the Sub City shopping centre in Župa. They will come up to people prentending to be deaf and try to get people to sign a list and donate money. This money does not go into the association but directly in their pockets. Several citizens have reported that these scam artists are from Bulgaria.
