DeKalb Police Offer Tips on Door-to-Door Scams

A few neighborhood associations in the North Druid Hills-Briarcliff area have said over the last week that door-to-door scammers have returned to the area, targeting elderly residents in particular.

DeKalb County police may have noticed that as well and sent out some tips on door-to-door scamming. See it above.

Should a legitimate door-to-door salesperson in DeKalb County have a permit? If so, how must the salesperson display the permit? If a permit is required but not shown, what telephone number should the homeowner call to alert authorities?

Don't open the door until/unless you don't know who it is! If it's a person you dont personally know, tell 'em to go away. Thats what I do!
