Many thanks to 30004USA for providing this information.
oh my gosh - this is too weird because just yesterday we had a suspicious solicitor at our door as well who claimed to be raising money for the Habitat For Humanity and wanted us to buy a coupon book just like the books the Milton High football kids are selling right now. I know this because 5 min. before the suspicious kid came up, a neighbor who we know really well had just stopped by to sell the exact same coupon book and we bought from him. so, fortunately, my husband did not buy from the kid but said he was very pushy and would not take no for an answer. Finally, he got him to leave but to throw us off even more he was wearing a Milton High t-shirt but was not claiming to be raising money for them but for Habitat. Seemed weird, must have been part of that scam...........

If you do not know the "new" neighbor, then don't give them any money. We've heard of other scams such as this with magazine subscription scams in our area. If you know the child/teen asking for your support, it's probably fine, but if you don't then be very cautious about handing over money and signing forms. And, above all, be cautious about letting someone enter your home in light of the most recent crime activity in our area.
As always, first call 9-1-1 if you suspect anything wrong, and the Milton Police will be dispatched.
