Another group targeted by magazine scammers
Another local group appears to be the target of a scam where someone claims to be selling magazines to support the organization.
The Center for Women in Transition in Champaign said it learned on Tuesday that a person is going door-to-door in the city selling magazine subscriptions and claiming to be doing it on behalf of the shelter.
The group says it never does door-to-door fundraising and urges anyone affected by the scam to call the police.
