Guest post of the week by Deangelo Spencer

I was expecting reliant energy texas installers when the doorbell rang today. Instead I saw two cute little kids. They had a catalog with magazine subscriptions and asked me to look through them and pick a few. They said that they would get a portion of the magazine sales to help them go to a basketball summer camp that they were interested in. I looked through the subscription list and ended up signing up for Travel and Leisure, Vogue, and Southern Living. After all, the prices were pretty good and I wanted to help these little kids. I gave them a check and they were on their way. Later that day, I called my sister and was telling her about the magazines that I had gotten from those cute little kids. She started hysterically laughing. I was really confused until she explained that she had just seen a special on the news about a magazine scam. Cute kids would go door to door selling magazines subscriptions, and it turns out that everyone who had ordered something never got their magazines and that it wasn’t sponsored by the companies at all. I felt like a real dummy!
