They say they're trying to raise money for sick kids, but it turns out they're just scamming people.

Children's Hospital of the King's Daughter’s officials say they've received complaints from people in the Lake Shore neighborhood in Newport News.

They say a crew of teenagers is knocking on doors trying to sell neighbors magazines saying the money is going to CHKD.

CHKD says they've heard of these scams before.

They also stated that they never make door-to-door solicitations.
