Fraudulent Fundraising Scheme

By  | 

The Better Business Bureau has a warning about some fraudulent fundraising in Colorado Springs.

According to the BBB, some people who claim to represent the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region are asking people for donations. They say in most cases they're carrying a cardboard box with yellow or red, white and blue ribbons.

The director for the Pikes Peak Human Society says the organization is not sanctioning the fundraiser.

If you're approached by someone seeking these types of donations, walk away, write down a description of the person, and call the police in your area.
