Clare County Sheriff warning of alleged salesman scam in Isabella County
ISABELLA COUNTY, Mich. --The Clare County Sheriff is warning of an alleged scam in northern Isabella County.
They say there have been reports of people posing as door-to-door salesmen in rural parts of the county.
The salesmen attempt to get permission to enter a home and give a demonstration of what they’re selling, make an excuse about having to leave and then say they’ll return shortly.
The sheriff’s office says the scam or theft takes place because a third individual is outside and will take the opportunity to go through a resident’s she or pole barn to looking for items to steal while the homeowner or resident is distracted by the so-called salesmen.
