Wheeling Police are warning citizens of scammers who are going door to door claiming to be collecting donations with the Wounded Warrior Project.
Police say a man was in Woodsdale Tuesday, claiming to be with the non-profit organization, collecting money from people in the area. However, Wounded Warrior Project does not go door to door.
Police were able to find the suspect, who they say is from Pennsylvania. He was released with a citation.
Police say people going door to door must get a permit through the city manager’s office to do so.
