Two 18 yr olds came to door representing Quality Subscriptions, Inc [QSI] soliciting donations to purchase books for a local childrens charity. Both said they lived in our subdivision and had graduated from local high schools--rattled off the school names and names of our neighbors. [We are new to this neighborhood and didn't have great familarity with the schools or neighbors]. One said he was on a baseball scholarship to the local university. They offered to wash windows or some other odd jobs in appreciating of our paricipation and scheduled us for 3:45PM Saturday.
We bit on their sell job. Very slick and convincing. They had "QSI ID", color brochures for the children's books, and printed receipts with computer-generated receipt numbers in duplicate. We got their names and phone numbers. Later our neighbor googled Quality Subscriptions, Inc and it came up on multiple scam-alert websites. All of their contact info was bogus.
