::Police Warn Of Door-To-Door Scams

From Raleigh Chronicle Staff And Wire Reports
Monday, May 21, 2007

RALEIGH - The Raleigh Police Department says it has recently received reports of "suspicious activity" of potentially fraudulent door to door scams in District 26 which includes southwest Raleigh.

"In each case, residents reported that subjects had come to their doors under various pretenses," said Jim Sughrue, Raleigh Police Department spokesman in a media statement.

Police said that no crimes were committed during the three incidents, but they are warning residents to be careful, since in at least two of the incidents, the people at the door were not who they claimed to be.

As described by the Raleigh Police, here are the three incident reports:

--- In the first instance, two male subjects indicated they were selling vacuum cleaners and became irate when the resident declined to let them into the home for a test. The subjects subsequently left the area.

--- In the second instance, two male subjects indicated they were working for a security company and asked questions about a nearby home. The resident was uncomfortable with the encounter and asked the  subjects to leave, which they did. It was later learned that the subjects did not work for the company they claimed to represent.

--- In the third instance, a subject indicated he worked for a cable company and asked to enter the home. She declined the request and the subject left. It was later determined that the company was not doing work in the area.

Sughrue said that residents are advised to call 911 if they suspect foul play.

"Officers would much prefer to respond and learn that nothing is wrong than to be called later to investigate a crime," commented Sughrue.  ::
