Some Long Islanders expecting Girl Scout cookies recently realized they were the victim of a scam.
Kevin Zasowski, of Patchogue, says a young girl came to his home in late April selling Girl Scout cookies. He says she was wearing plain clothes and her father waited in the street.
"You really couldn't say no to this little girl," Zasowski says. "She was so cute, she really was."
Zasowski handed her over $20, expecting four boxes to be delivered, but the cookies never came.
Nick Zavesky was also ripped off by the same father and daughter duo.
"I as just taken a back," Zavesky says. "I'm like, 'So, I guess that's where the money went.' It's a terrible thing the gentleman used the little girl for that, but hopefully it went towards the little girl at least."
According to the Girl Scouts, the scam was reported in Bohemia, Shirley, Mastic, Lake Ronkonkoma and Patchogue.
Anyone who think they could have been scammed is urged to contact the police.
The Girl Scouts say they are working with law enforcement and are offering free cookies to anyone who placed a bogus order.
