DARE To Be Scammed

June 26, 2008 at 1:15pm By: Mr. Wilson Posted in The Lincolnite Blog

LPD Chief Tom Casady has received a couple inquiries recently about folks selling DARE merchandise at locations around town. Lincoln has not had an active DARE program since 2000, so don’t be fooled into thinking the proceeds of your purchase stay in the community. For that matter, don’t be fooled into thinking your purchase is making much of a dent at all—the amount of your purchase being returned to DARE may be 5% or lower. You’re better off mailing a quarter directly to DARE headquarters.

The ethically challenged company behind these wares appears to be Momentum Marketing, aka JM Promotions Group. (They share the same phone number.)

In theory, I have a DARE shirt tucked away somewhere back home. I should sell it to a hipster, as they seem to be the target audience for DARE paraphernalia these days.
