A man has been charged with more than 20 counts of fraud in West Sussex and Hampshire, amounting to £236,000.
John Alexander Taylor, 63, of Lordings Road, Billingshurst, is accused of 23 counts of fraud by false representation between May 2009 and February 2011.
The charges follow a Sussex Police investigation into a complaint about non-existent charity ball in Edinburgh in 2010 and donations to charity.
Mr Taylor is due to appear at Crawley Magistrates' Court on 1 September.
The offences are alleged to have been carried out in Horsham and Kingston Gorse, near Littlehampton, in West Sussex, Southampton, Petersfield and Liphook in Hampshire.
