Screen Shot 2015-04-02 at 2.02.44 PMMANCHESTER, NH – Manchester Police have warned local businesses and individuals to be wary of a group of young people who reportedly have been going around selling candy bars under false pretenses.

The scam was called to their attention by the NH Boys and Girls Club, which contacted police to report the issue.

Police said that all vendors need a hawkers/peddlers permit to sell goods, and secondly, the Boys and Girls Club IS NOT currently conducting a fundraiser that involves candy bars.

This is a scam. If you should encounter someone selling candy bars for this cause report it to Manchester Police at 668-8411.
