Over the past few days, there have been Facebook posts of suspicious subjects going door to door asking for money in a number of Bluffton neighborhoods.
The Facebook posts have varied, but a few have mentioned the subjects have come to their door asking for a cash donation for a hurricane relief effort. Posts indicated that after being told by the homeowner that they did not have cash, the man (in some instances) or the woman (in others) had offered to drive them to an ATM to get money. There has also been mention that the subjects were driving a van with an Alabama license plate.
Please do not provide these suspicious persons with any of your personal information or cash, and under no circumstance should you get in a vehicle with them. We know of no charitable cause or any other legitimate reason for these subjects to be soliciting money in Beaufort County.
