Door-to-Door Solicitations - Current Solicitation Scams
The Magazine Sale Scam: This occurs when someone who claims to work for a magazine company promises a consumer a new magazine subscription, or the renewal of a subscription at a very low price. Often the price is misrepresented or the magazine is never delivered. A victim who supplies credit card or bank account numbers could also become a victim of identity theft.
The Home Repair Scam: This occurs when someone offers to home repair work at a very low cost when it would otherwise be very expensive. The con artist may use poor materials and untrained workers, leave the job unfinished, or simply take your initial deposit and never return.
