Kauai police are warning the public about a donation scam claiming to benefit Wilcox Hospital.

Residents have reported that two men have been soliciting donations door-to-door by offering magazines or books. They claim the donations will benefit Wilcox Hospital, but hospital officials say there is no such program.

The state Attorney General’s Office last week issued a warning that Hawaii residents may be exposed to a sales campaign by an organization known as "Dynasty Sales" selling magazines, books and DVDs to benefit children’s hospitals.

Officials also warned Maui residents about a firm called Pacific Coast Cleaning Services claiming proceeds from magazine sales will go to a local hospital.
