The Oregon Department of Justice issues a warning about a deceptive company named “Smartraiser”. DOJ spokesman Keith Dubanevich says they’re not what they say they are: “There are people knocking on doors, allegedly soliciting money to provide care packages to our military personnel overseas. When in reality, they are a for-profit entity and very little, if any of the money is going to our military.” The scam, so far, has only been run in Washington County, but could spread around the state. The approach is similar to a scam conducted last summer in which sales crews suggested that buying a magazine subscription was a charitable donation. AG John Kroger says Oregonians should protect themselves by researching charities before donating. Go to the Attorney General’s website and click on the “check on a charity” button.
