Wanted to let you know that we had a knock on our door this evening from a guy claiming to be part of the Dunbar High School Band... he was looking for donations in an attempt to raise $950 for a trip to a competition (ultimately they were he was trying to get to Jamaica). He looked much older than high school... so something seemed strange. About a month ago we also had another kid ask for support because he was part of the Cardozo High School Band (looking to go on the same/similar trip)... he looked high school age. Anyway... this guy left without much hassle on my end, but I called police right afterwards. I am almost certain this is a scam and there were other motives for him knocking on my door... so my hope is that:
1) if anyone has a similar experience please call the police right away2) would love for someone to prove me wrong, and that these requests are legitimate... but my gut says they are not
This happened at 3rd and R NW.
