If you see random people wearing traffic vests at busy intersections and walking thru traffic asking for donations for a teens funeral, it’s a scam.

Springfield police have had several calls on this, not only is it dangerous, but it’s also against city ordinances for panhandling.

If you see these panhandlers let the Springfield Police  Department know of the location.

Buffalo, Missouri recently had a similar panhandling group there asking for money for a teens funeral.
