Scam hitting the Midwest moves to Iowa


A group ringing doorbells in central Iowa are hoping to claim their next victim. 

With previous stops in Minnesota and St. Louis, police are warning residents in Ankeny, Pleasant Hill and Johnston to watch out. 

A group claiming to be from Warrior Box Marketing asks for $40 donations to make care packages for American troops. But the operation is a fraud. 

Experts say these scammer soften prey on the poor and elderly—those without the means to do the proper vetting.
