Beware of magazine solicitors claiming to represent Boys & Girls Clubs of King County

For the Reporter

Boys & Girls Clubs of King County (BGCKC) has discovered that recent suspicious activity has been wrongly attributed to the organization.

Recently, residents of the Montlake/Madison Valley area reported that some young men have solicited magazine subscriptions benefitting BGCKC through a company called P.S. Circulation.

Earlier last year, this same occurrence was reported in Greenwood/North Seattle and Queen Anne. Boys & Girls Clubs of America do not solicit donations using young people to sell magazines.

Door-to-door magazine sellers in greater Seattle mentioning the Boys & Girls Clubs may be engaged in illegal activity. Please notify police if you are solicited in such a manner.
