Composite of 'chrity' and 'mugger'. These people will stop you in the street and talk to you as if they are your oldest and best friend. All of which is a false cover for their real intention. Working on commission, they need people to donate to the charities which they 'represent' and to do this they will guilt trip you into handing over all your details.
One effective way of giving to the charity, yet not being conned into surrendering your card details and other sensitive information is to request the address and contact details of the charities head office and offer to make a direct payment. This will annoy the chugger as it cuts them out of the equation but you will have the upper hand. Otherwise try to think of a quirky reply to their begging for which they will have no answer or look straight through them.
Chugger: Do you like children?
Me: Yes, but I couldn't eat a whole one.
Chugger: (silence and look of shock)
