Gold Hill Members Neighborhood Watch

I have been getting several reports of a scam going on in the skyway area but could move through Gold Hill. We have reports of several young people, college aged boys and girls, selling magazine subscriptions in this area. The scam varies from the “student” needing intern money for overseas schooling to selling magazines to injured troops overseas.

We have limited information at this time to follow-up on other than a possible connection with a tan colored van with Arizona License plates.

If you have been victimized by this scam and given a check to these people please cancel your check and call your bank to close your account. They won’t be interested in the $25.00 check for a magazine subscription. What they are interested in is the routing number on your check that they will use to print their own checks with to empty your accounts.

Please share this information with your neighbors and groups
