SCAM ALERT: Century II supporters warn of fake online collection sites

Posted: Updated:
WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) -

Members of the Save Century II organization say scammers are trying to take advantage of their efforts.

Just since this morning, they’ve received calls about other online petitions and even sites asking for money to fund the movement.

They say it’s all fake.

The only petition that can be presented to the city is the one they’re collecting at various events across the city, but that’s all done in person. Those signatures collected physically are the only ones that can be presented to the city.

Any money that supporters would like to donate also cannot be done online. It says any site that tries to convince you otherwise is fraudulent.

The group said financial donations are welcome via cash or check by bringing them physically by a new office at 435 N. Broadway in Wichita.

You can also mail it to the Historic Preservation Alliance, P.O. Box 75037, Wichita, KS 67275.
