New Door-to-Door Sales Scheme Raises Red Flags

We’ve heard via email and Twitter that there’s a new door-to-door scam making its way around Arlington.

The sellers claim to be helping out “inner city kids,” perhaps by asking you to purchase books, according to tipsters. They also might mention something about “motivational speaking.” In the end, they ask for a large sum of money.

At least one resident called police after a visit by the salesmen. No word on which company or organization they claim to represent.
