Edna Police said a group of possible scammers are going to door-to-door looking to steal your hard earned money but who they're using as part of the scam has some concerned. The youths said the money will go to injured veterans, but we don't know if it ever gets there.
Monday in Edna, police were notified of several possible teenage scammers going door to door selling people magazines. Police said they were claiming the money went to injured veterans. Police said they could not verify if they were legitimate but they were asked to leave because they did not have the proper permits. Edna police Chief Clinton Wooldridge said people need to be cautious of any one asking for money and that scammers and panhandlers have all sorts of dirty tactics. Woolridge also said other scammers will target people in public places including restaurant parking lots and gas stations. Chief Woodridge added that one good way to find out if something is a scam is by Googling the basic scenario and see if others have posted online about it.
