Representatives with the First Capital District Chapter say someone is soliciting donations door-to-door using the Red Cross name.
Representatives of First Capital District Chapter of the American Red Cross are warning locals of a scam. Susie Dalton said they have received reports of people not affiliated with the Red Cross trying to solicit funds door-to-door.
"They have a Red Cross can," said Dalton. "We don't know where they got that, but they look legit."
She added that the Red Cross does not collect funds door-to-door.
Another red flag is that the subjects reportedly say they can only take cash donations; however, Dalton said the Red Cross does accept checks so that a receipt can be issued to the donor.
Dalton said the scam artists have been spotted along Bellview Avenue, Cliffside Drive, and Crestline Road, and police have been notified.
