Just out of the WSB inbox from “JAR,” our first door-to-door alert in a while – read on:
Yesterday a “nice young man” attempted to sell me a magazine subscription as part of a fundraiser. The magazine subscription would actually go to a non-profit organization. He told me that he was a member of the Husky rugby team and that they were raising funds for a trip to Australia. This guy was very slick! After he left my neighbor knocked on my door and informed me that he checked the UW Husky rugby website and that the magazine fund raiser was fraudulent. We tracked the guy down and I got my check back. When we confronted the “nice young man” of course he denied it. I got my check back thanks to my neighbor’s quick internet sleuthing but the next person may not be so lucky.
