HIGH RIDGE, MO (KTVI)-- A fundraising fraud has been uncovered in High Ridge.

Residents in the Brennan`s Glen subdivision and other neighborhoods say two teenagers were going door to door asking money for a fourth grader at Brennan Woods Elementary School who has a brain tumor.

The principal at the school says it is a fraud. There is no student at the school who has a brain tumor.

If you are approached by the couple you are asked to call the Jefferson County Sheriff's Department.

    Disgusting! you see these stories more now, and include women getting free weddings, guys getting free trips and so on..My father has battled cancer for years, and I have volunteered with komen a few times, and these survivors are personally affected by these frauds, as well as their families..Sure I was a dumb kid once, but if I needed money, i shoveled snow, or cut grass, or got a pt job..Put these little hustlers in juvie for a year or two, then hit them with 1000 hours of community service with truly sick folks to see the disgusting error of their ways..
