In the scam department, there have been problems with so-called entertainment books containing coupons for businesses that never agreed to participate. The ones I've heard of involve door-to-door sales, like those dubious magazine subscriptions. Sometimes they claim to be selling for a charity or a school booster club. Last year, the Burbank, California police put out a press releaseQuoteBurbank police warned residents about several young con artists going door-to-door to sell worthless coupon books and discount cards.
“The teens may tell the resident they are fundraising for the ‘Burbank Boosters,’ sports or academic teams from Burbank High School, Burroughs High School, Cal State University Northridge, or other legitimate institutions,” said Burbank police Sgt. Claudio Losacco.
“If you purchase one of these illegitimate coupon books or discount cards, you will find them useless when you try to redeem any discounts they purport to give you,” Losacco said.
The ones I was referring to are legitimate.
