BBB Watch

With the school year about to start, scammers will stand outside supermarkets or other neighborhood stores asking for donations to help the local football team, band or other cause. Before you donate, don’t hesitate to call the school to verify the legitimacy. Examine fundraisers’ paperwork and flyers closely. If you have any doubts, call the police.
