Scouting for a Scam

August 08, 1993

* Regarding "Scouts to Do Survey of Business Licenses" (Focus, July 30):

What's going on here?

Are the Boy Scouts now working for the government in Tustin as tax collectors?

If so, why?

Business licenses are nothing but a scam. They are just another scheme to shake down businesses. They don't prove skills or abilities or honesty.

Business licenses should be abolished.

I can't believe the Boy Scouts of America, of all people, would be a part of a shakedown.

I'd love to hear the explanation for this.
