Dormont Residents Warned of Door-to-Door Scammers

Dormont Council warns residents that people claiming to be collecting money for the Keystone Oaks band aren’t related to the school district.

warned residents Monday night that door-to-door solicitors claiming to be with the marching band aren’t related to the school district at all.

Council member Laurie Malka said she received an email from a resident on Monday stating that people had been walking through Dormont and asking for donations, saying they were representatives of the Keystone Oaks band.

She said a band director in the school district told her the band does not solicit funds by collecting donations door-to-door.

“If anyone comes to your door asking for donations, this is not for the band,” Malka said. “Please do not give them any money.”

I think I would call the police before my council. This is still a form of theft, is it not? Simply refusing to give them money and not taking action allows the thieves to operate with impunity. These people are only a step away from being daytime burglars.
