TOO BAD, "SOSAD": Flyer Boy For Fake Charity Is Charged

Three teens were raising money for a non-existent charity called "SOSAD" when one of them spit in the face of a Lincoln Park business woman who told them to leave her shop, prosecutors say.

The three were arrested on September 17, within days of multiple businesses reporting that phones and other valuables had been stolen by young black males and females who entered their premises while pretending to be raising money for charities.

Arrested along with two unidentified juveniles was Darion Dunbar, 18, of the East Side neighborhood. He's charged with trespassing and soliciting charitable donations without a permit.

Cops say they saw Dunbar drop several "SO SAD" flyers during a short foot pursuit before his arrest.

"Please support the SOSAD Youth" the flyers read, "donate $5-$10-$15-$20 YMCA"

Investigators called a phone number on the flyer and spoke with the YMCA's executive director who told them that they "do not have anyone collecting donations door-to-door. This scam happens all the time."

The victim who was spat upon identified Dunbar as one of the offenders who refused to leave the salon and swore at her. He has not been charged with any of the reported thefts.

  2. Trespassing and soliciting charitable donations without a permit, well if that's all they end up charging him with then he will be back out to a neighborhood near you very soon. What about the fact he spat in a persons face? No charges for that? Ya can really see why people would take up vigilante justice. If he was beaten to a pulp and told he's if he came back he wouldn't make it to 19, at least he might find an easier area to do his crimes. But as it is, they are all treated lightly even when it's possession of a gun. If the parents of juveniles involved in serious crimes were charged right along with the little thugs parents might take a more active interest in what their kids were up to. But imagine the screaming if they said they were going to do it.

  3. So sad is right. I over heard them talking about robbing people to make money for food while waiting for the train at argyle. I turned to the guy and gave him some money. I told him not rob people and to use his head. Jail and prison isn't worth it. I guess some people need to learn the hard way

  5. i was in Target on Broadway yesterday morning when two of them were IN the store walking up to people. approached me with a story about uniforms for their high school basketball team. i asked if the school authorized them to be off school grounds soliciting when they should be in school at this time of the day. i was suddenly called "bogus" and all kinds of "punk mofos" and bitches for asking. in their defense, at least they actually had candy to give you for your donation, lol. i'm really surprised that they were allowed in...or maybe i'm not.

    1. That Target is a magnet for bums and crazies. Just last weekend I saw security throwing a guy out of the store. It doesn't help that it's situated right by Wilson/Broadway, which is still a ghetto puppet show every time I go past.
