Magazine scam reported
The Mesa County Sheriff’s Department said Tuesday two residents in the 3100 block of Carlton Court reported on Monday they had given money to door-to-door salesmen offering magazine subscriptions who falsely claimed the proceeds will benefit the U.S. Marine Corps. The scams are similar to reports received last week, which involved individuals claiming they were selling subscriptions to benefit Mesa State College. Residents are urged to contact authorities if approached by suspected scam artists.
