Suspicious signature collecting

Recently there have been reports that people collecting signatures for the 2008 anti-gay marriage petition have been using illegal bait-and-switch tactics. Here are a couple of links from MassEquality that they've set up in response to these reports:

i am ashamed and mortified that i got caught out by this scam... they caught me on the way out of a Targe... and i should have known way better than to sign without reading. thank you so much for posting info about this, and especially how to explain that you didn't really mean to sign. :/
 

You're welcome ... I'm sure you're not the only one who was fooled. I hope that people's complains will stop the petition collectors from using such unscrupulous methods.
