Door-to-door collection for local charity a scam

Sjoberg said she was made aware of the scam when a collector knocked on the door of a home belonging to the parents of one of her staff members.

The director said she has contacted police and she wanted to make people in the community aware of the scam.

“I don’t want anybody to be scammed by anyone at any time,” Sjoberg said.

Sjoberg said they do have a legitimate fundraiser coming up — an English garden party and dressage show on Aug. 25 at Hampton Green Farms in Fruitport. People may also make contributions by going to the organization’s website at www.bbbslakeshore.org.
