Scammers using Children's Hospital's name to make money

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - Children's Hospital is warning of con artists using their names for profit.

Hospital officials say a group of young men in the Birmingham area is falsely using the hospital's name to sell books they claim will be donated to children's. The young men say they will earn a percentage of the book sales for a baseball trip to Hawaii.

A similar scam was detected last week in Montgomery.
