Type of a scam Charity
While they appear to have legal charity status (? questionable) they are very sleazy in their operations. They employ fast talking "assumptive" selling phone pitches which imply that the business in question has already participated in the publication previously. This was not true for us. The salesperson basically gives a quick pitch about how "we" all support youth sports and how "we" are supporting the publication again this year. They then move straight to how they'll mail us a proof and only invoice us once we're satisfied. If you don't outright stop them there they then switch you to another salesperson who I am assuming is the "closer". Thankfully I became wise to the situation and outright asked if it this was something our business participated in last year. They then finally said no. I basically shut down the conversation after that and told them I didn't appreciate their sleazy tactics. I have read multiple google reviews of businesses with the exact same experience. To whoever is receiving this notice, I would highly suggest a quick google of "young fitness" and just read through the google reviews. No authentic charity uses these kind of tactics and so they are a scam. If an inquiry was done, I would bet that the venues receiving these publications don't even request them. I even called our local minor hockey chair and asked him if he knew anything about this publication (name available if requested) and he didn't know about it. He mentioned there was a newspaper that gets dropped off but it doesn't have any content that's related to our area. Young fitness probably just drops them off and then can check off that they deliver X amount of these useless newspapers to each venue. Avoid them like the plague and continue reporting them as they are in fact...a scam.
