Who's that clown on your front porch? A Shriner, collecting for charity

Shriners in Memphis, Tennesee and other cities are using a novel way to get people who promise to donate after being called by telemarketers to actually give the money, WREG-TV reports.

"Leave a check under your doormat," they say.

The next day, a Shriner or a paid agent for the Shrine picks up the check and leaves a receipt.

Hey... if it works, go for it. Just don't call me.
