"An order for 6,000 boxes of Girl Scout cookies turned out to be a half-baked hoax, leaving the troops holding the boxes, KATU News reported. Two Oregon Girl Scout troops were given an order for 6,000 boxes of the trademark cookies, an order totaling $24,000, by a company in Hillsboro. According to KATU, a parent of one of the scouts said a co-worker approached her to set up a large corporate account. Then, the parent exchanged emails with someone claiming to be from the company. But when it came time to pay up, that’s when the whole scheme crumbled." (03/17/13)
