Police Warn Residents About Door-to-Door Scam
It is rare if anyone uninvited knocks on my door. Occasionally I will get high school kids collecting bottles, but other than that – nothing. If you are used to door-to-door salespeople in your neighborhood, heads up not all are legit (shocker).
The Clare County Sheriff’s Department is warning residents about a pair of scammers posing as salesmen. Reports indicate they will ask to come in to give some sort of demonstration of whatever they are selling. One of the con artists will then leave. Meanwhile, a third guy who is going through sheds, pole barns or whatever they can while the homeowner is occupied. The driver then returns AFTER picking up the stolen items and the third guy. What a bunch of BS. If you have any information regarding this scam, please contact police.
