Has anyone noticed two gentlemen in your neighborhood selling magazines for “PS Circulation LLC”? They pitch this as a charitable organization but a simple search on Google shows quite a few posts that allude to this being a scam. I’ve seen them in my neighborhood for the past 3 days and am curious if other areas of Arlington are being visited as well. If you do see them come to your door, I recommend doing some research before you hand over a cash or check…
They come to my neighborhood every spring for several years. Now I just ask to see their Arlington County solicitors license; which they are required to have but, of course, never do. As noted above, some of them have launched into profanity-laden tirades when rejected.
They were in Clarendon last weekend. Luckily I’ve never had one become belligerent with me. He just kept asking as if he didn’t understand when I said I wasn’t interested. Maybe more of us should start calling the ACPD when these guys come around. I guarantee you that NONE of them have a solicitors permit.
It’s safe to assume that ALL door-to-door magazine sales are a scam.
