Boys and Girls Club Fraud Alert

Dallas Police are investigating numerous reports of individuals posing as volunteers of the "Dallas Boys and Girls Club of Greater Dallas" going door to door fraudulently soliciting money in the name of the organization. These individuals are described as Black males wearing orange vest similar to that which are actually worn by Boys and Girls Club volunteers. However, the Boys and Girls Club DOES NOT solicit donations by going door to door in residential neighborhoods. They receive their donations on site at any of their area locations or by phone.

If someone comes to your door claiming to represent the organization soliciting funds call 911 to report the activity, DO NOT give any donations. If you are outside your home at or near an event of some sort where donations are being solicited, feel free to call the Boys and Girls Club at 214-821-2950 to confirm their site location before giving any donations.
