Another group targeted by magazine scammers

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.

Earlier, we told you about a similar scam that was affecting the Don Moyer Boys and Girls Club in Champaign.

Oh, boy, I hope they show up at MY door!  I'll take a nice snapshot of these thugs and send it to the newspaper and the news stations so they can be identifed and arrested.
