Two teens saying they were working with their school and a company called FTFT came to my house saying they were selling magazines to help raise $ for a childrens literacy program. If I answered a survey they would be eligible to go on a trip to Italy, so i said ok I'll answer your survey to give you guys a chance. Then they handed me pamphlets of all the magazines. I could get a 2 year subscription of Humpty Dumpty stories plus games and interactive DVDs for $22, and that included a portion of their complete earnings of the year going to another charity of my choice. I decided to do that because i felt like it was legitimate due to the paperwork they had on them. The handed me the receipt and it was for $63.I asked them why they said it was for $22 and it was instead that price and he said they added shipping and handling plus a contribution to the charity i chose (cancer research).Answer Question

Even on this site I'm finding scam artist preying on people good nature and people are falling for it. You just never know who's behind the screen names. Many are just newbies telling sobbing stories that they told many times before and it's worked.
Always pay attention to the little red flag in you when something doesn't feel right. I never buy anything on door to door unless I see the product. For example candy.
