Scamtastic!

News from Capacitybuilders that there’s been a bit of an overflow of entrepreneurialism as a result of the launch of the Modernisation Fund:

Dear bursary holder,

Important clarification about the Real Help for Communities: Modernisation Fund

It has come to our attention that a number of organisations in the London area were contacted by an organisation called “Whitebox” or a project called the “London Turnaround”, encouraging them to apply to the Government’s Real Help for Communities: Modernisation Fund.

This email is to make it clear that Whitebox are not agents of Capacitybuilders, nor partners in delivering the Modernisation Fund. The Whitebox ‘London Turnaround’ programme’ and the Whitebox ‘Modernisation Package’ are not strands of the Real Help for Communities: Modernisation Fund. Statements made by Whitebox in emails sent to Third Sector organisations that “funding from Capacity Builders will cover your IT requirements for up to two years” are not accurate.

Indeed.
