Door to door scams on the rise - Friday, May 13, 2016

Gallatin Police Department would like to remind everyone that there has been an increase of false door to door salesmen in the Gallatin area. Always remember the person must have a valid permit to sale door to door.

Scams to watch for:
1. Census workers (Since the census is only taken in years ending in “0”, they are frauds).
2. Magazine Subscription Salesperson.
3. Charity Fundraisers.
4. Utility Company Worker.
5. Alarm Salesmen.
6. Anyone using high pressure sales tactics to get you to buy today.

Never feel compelled to open the door, especially if you do not know the person. Ask to see the solicitor’s permit. Always remember to be safe and watch out for yourself and your neighbors. If you believe the person selling in your area does not have a permit, call the Gallatin Police Department at 615-452-1313.
