Beware of Package Stealers
You may have heard about the fraudulent door knockers that can show up anywhere in a hometown, “so always beware,” says Linda Webb aka The Fraud Dog. Fraudsters could be knocking on your door pretending to be a charity workers, door-to-door salesman, and even people trying to sell you things you do not need. They could be repairmen hoping to fix your roof that does not need repair; trying to sell you a new air condition unit that doesn’t need replacing; or a septic tank that needs cleaning.
Then there are the package stealers who follow UPS Trucks or Fed Ex vans. When the delivery person walks ups to drop packages at your door, someone else is hoping to steal them when you are not around. Be sure if you see some stranger lurking around your neighborhood to call the police. Look out for your neighbors and get involved to help your community be a little bit safer, says Linda Webb, the Fraud dog.
