United Way officials say three Medford residents called to report that two men came to their doors illegally looking for money.
Dee Anne Everson is the executive director of the United Way of Jackson County. She told the Medford Mail Tribune that United Way never goes door-to-door, and urged people to call police if such activity occurs.
One responder on United Way's Facebook site said two scruffy men sporting white United Way T-shirts had come to her door seeking money.
United Way personnel put out a warning on their social media sites, alerting people not to be fooled.
Though United Way never seeks donations in this manner, some legitimate nonprofit organizations do neighborhood collection drives.
