Ada Boys & Girls Clubs warn of fraudulent solicitations in their name

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Ada County reported Thursday that they received a report that several people were soliciting donations in the organization's name Wednesday.

The clubs did not authorize the solicitation and encouraged people who are approached to contact local police, according to a news release.

The suspicious people were described as teens or young adults with thick accents and a crumpled Boys & Girls Clubs of Ada County business card.

The incident happened about 8:30 p.m. Wednesday in the Pinewood Lakes neighborhood in Star, according to the news release. The organization is concerned that other solicitations may be happening in other Ada County areas including Boise, Meridian, Kuna and Garden City.
