When he came to my door, he said he was working to win a college scholarship and needed 2 things from me, 1- to listen to what I do for a living to gain inspiration-which I stay at home and of course, to him, that was inspiring enough- raising kids and helping my husband from afar at war... and then 2- to buy magazine subscriptions which gain him points to win a scholarship. He told me he was an ex-marine who had been to Iraq and knew the hardship it had on me and my family-which that was the first thing that didn't set right- ex-marines don't usually need to try to sell magazines for $5,000 for college.
Then he told me that the guy that is in the lead of the contest actually has my last name. He saw that my daughter was watching her favorite t.v. show which happened to be his too and was going on and on with her about the show and it's characters. Then he told me the more magazines I buy the more I get free. So, thinking of my husband, I got him one, me one which supposedly got my daughter one free. Of course, if you pay in cash he gets bonus points towards his goal, lucky for me I didn't have cash. So, better yet, If my check had a design printed on it and wasn't plain,he got bonus points too.
When I spoke with my husband he told me it was a scam and that they come out to prey on Army spouses at every deployment and that he was duped by one trying to win a trip to Paris and never saw 1 magazine. I was given a receipt and told to save it incase I moved and that it was a tax write off because wrapped up in the contest, depending on what magazines you buy, and of course, I just happened to pick one of them, money went to breast cancer, so it was a write off for charity. In telling some friends I found out they had been duped around the same time, all with different stories, all military spouses, though they lived off post, but in neighborhoods where many Army families live. So, in turn, I guess they see the stickers on our cars and see a blinking sign. Needless to say....I stopped the check.
