A teenage looking boy solicited our neighborhood saying he is raising money for his soccer team to travel to San Diego for the National Championship. At first, he was unable to tell me what club he played for, and did not recongnize the names of any of the main three soccer clubs in our city. He then said his team (the "Strikers") was with the National Soccer Academy and that he had players on his team from several locations.

I searched for his team on the internet, and could not find it which started me searching further. He also said he lived in the adjacent neighborhood and had just moved their from another school district (Wayne HS). This may explain why none of the neighborhood HS age kids recognized him.

His story was similar to the other reports I read on this webstie. We could donate the books we purchase to a local school, etc. Of coarse, helping out a neighborhood kid is something most people are willing to do, so it is an effective scam, and it is upsetting because there are a lot of kids who do raise money for legitimate youth organizations.

FYI - The receipt says the following business identifications:

Nationwide Subscriptions, Inc.
P.O. Box 2224
Buford, GA 30515

Fort Wayne Soccer fundraising ripoff

AUTHOR: A - (U.S.A.)

POSTED: Tuesday, July 11, 2006

I spoke with some people who have been very involved with soccer in the area for years, and there was only 1 team from our area who won a state championship this year (boys or girls) of any age and that was a girls team of 15-year-olds. The National Championships are held in Des Moines, Iowa this year, not San Diego as the boy claimed.

The next closest city with a state champion team of any age is Indianapolis. I distinctly remember what this boy looked like. If I see him again, I will report him to the police.
