    Term: (A word or expression you have seen in writing)

    Your definition or explanation:
    Blend of "charity" and "mugger", the people on the street who stop you and ask you to give them your bank details to sign up to them, i.e. these people.

    Example: (An example of the term in use)
    "Sorry I was late, one of those chuggers stopped me outside and I couldn't get away for 10 mins".

    One or more places you have seen the term: (Please give URLs/links to web pages, or a full description of a print publication.) (BBC Learn English, "Keep your English up to date", with explanation of its origin/history)

    etc etc... I think that's enough

    Have you looked for this term or meaning in dictionaries, and not found it? Yes :tick: It's not in many, so I think it's a good candidate to be added here.
