Roosevelt neighbor warns of possible scam by kids

March 25th, 2012 · 1 Comment

A neighbor in the Roosevelt neighborhood sent us this email Saturday afternoon, warning of a possible door-to-door scam by a couple of sweet-looking kids:

I live in the Roosevelt neighborhood. Awhile ago today a couple of sweet-looking females, one about 9 and the other mid-late teens, are going door to door asking for money for the younger one’s piano lessons with a teacher named “Aimee Kroll.” We never give money at the door, only food if someone’s hungry, and we route contributions to enterprises we can double-check. So we called Ms Kroll, who is indeed a piano teacher but she never heard of these girls. She said her business card might have been picked up at Starbucks’. These girls are pretty darling and believable. A shame they’re being taught to lie so well.

Did anybody else see this duo over the weekend?
