Willow Meadows Security Alert: Fundraising Scammers Plying Their Trade Again

Please be aware that youngish (late teens to twenties) individuals asking residents for money to support various charitable efforts have again arrived in Willow Meadows.

Their clever pitch for money to support some cause varies depending on who answers the door. They often claim to be related to someone in the neighborhood, but this never checks out. These people are dropped off in WM and nearby neighborhoods by the van full by their handlers, to be picked up later nearby. Many of these solicitors have criminal records and use the appeal for funds as a way to scope out resident’s homes for later thefts or burglaries.

Call our WM Security Patrol at (713) 447-0200 if one of these suspicious fund raisers comes to your home.

Community Emergency Response Team (CERT)

Houston's Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program, part of the Mayor's Office of Public Safety and Homeland Security, "trains ordinary citizens in how to help themselves and their neighbors in the event of disasters.  In addition, because of the training that CERT volunteers undergo, they are often called upon to assist in organizing disaster response as well." (from the Houston CERT Program web site)

For more information about the CERT program, you can view the presentation that was given at the March 2012 General Meeting, visit the Houston CERT Program web site and/or the CERT Willow Meadows Facebook page, or contact the This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
