Reidsville, NC -- Reidsville community members are being warned about a Girl Scout cookies scheme.
A spokesperson from Girl Scouts Carolinas Peaks to Piedmont said in a news release that the cookies were reported to have been fraudulently sold in the Reidsville area.
The organization noted that this time of year is not Girl Scout cookie season and that the people involved in the scheme are not associated with the organization.
Anyone approached by someone who is selling Girl Scout cookies is asked to report the incident to the Reidsville Police Department at (336) 349-1011 or the Rockingham County Sheriff's Office at (336) 634-3232.
A statement about Girl Scout cookies from their website:
Selling Girl Scout Cookies is an important component of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience for girls. Each Girl Scout council develops the procedures and guidelines for its cookie activities, including the dates when you can order or purchase cookies and the price you will pay per package. A council conducts only one cookie sale per year. Most of these activities take place between January and April, but some occur as early as September.
