Beware 'Charity' Seeking Donations for Soldiers


It's a heartfelt appeal: Give the person who comes to your door some money, and in turn a U.S. soldier will receive a care package or backpack containing snack food, personal hygiene items, paperback books, small novelty items, even new underwear.

But the Oregon Department of Justice is warning consumers to be wary. It's received several complaints about a company named Smartraiser that's soliciting door-to-door in the state under the guise of being a charity that sends care packages to U.S. troops serving overseas.
