Complaint Review: Marquis Fullfillment Agency

Marquis Fullfillment Agency Marquis Fulfillment Agency LLC, MFA, M.F.A. Kent, WASHINGTON - Young adult going Door to Door claiming to be a university student doing fundraising for studying abroad Buford, Georgia
She at first was trying to sell me magazine subscriptions, but when I declined I was offered a cash or check option that would in some way benefit the local children's hospital, and I decided to write her a $20 check, made out to M.F.A.
The scenario was definitely suspicious (of course now I'm kicking myself), and afterward I did some research on M.F.A. and low and behold it's what appears to be a nation wide scam of some sort, where M.F.A. is the clearinghouse.
The similarity in her tactics to those I've now read about on-line are strikingly identical - so it wouldn't surprise me if she has been coached in the tactics to lie and do whatever it takes to get a check written to M.F.A.
Everything I've read about this scam is that it's a quick cash grab - get as much cash checks as possible then split. $20 goes unnoticed by the victim, and the scammers move on to the next. I still have yet to figure out how the young kids are being paid for their "work", but they must get a kickback of some sort for every $$ they collect for M.F.A.
I am located in Kent, WA, about 20 miles south of Seattle. The scam took place on 05/01/2012.
