Resident claims fake Warren High athletes soliciting donations
WRITTEN BY :   Eric Pierce, Editor

We received the following letter from reader Maria Clark, who claims boys purporting to be Warren High students knocked on her door recently soliciting donations. Her son plays on the baseball team so she knew it was a scam.

Here is her letter:

“Citizens of Downey beware! Teenagers are going door to door impersonating Warren High baseball and football players selling candy for fictitious fundraisers.

“We had three different boys at our house, two so-called baseball players and one football player. Luckily, we happen to have a son on the baseball team. Unfortunately, we were duped by the fake football player.

“If the kids are not in uniform or cannot otherwise show proof of belonging to a legitimate organization, do not get scammed! And to the parents of these scammers who make it so difficult for those who really need to fundraise, a little discipline would be nice.”
