Warning given on magazine solicitation


Boys & Girls Clubs of King County (BGCKC) is warning residents that people in the Montlake / Madison Valley area of Seattle reported that some young men have solicited magazine subscriptions benefitting the clubs 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, the Boys & Girls Club said in a news release and ask people to notify police if they are solicited in such a manner.
