Is anyone haveing problems with these people? What there doing is getting bused from community to community I guess from some where in the south---they all have deep accents. Thier"job" I guess is to sell magazine subscribtion for college money and get "communication" points.
3 weeks ago my father was cooking in the kitchen and I was in the liveing room and I heard the kitchen door just open and some guy just walked in. My father says who the F are you get out of here. So I run around to the front and stop him out side. He claimed to be selling subscription to the Boston Globe,he claimed that if I gave him $20 cash I would automaticly get a reduced subscriton. He had a stack of yesterdays papers in his hand,yet no forms for this and wanted cash. I told him to leave immediatly and called the PD because his story was about as shakey as a 3 dollar bill. They must of got back in there bus with there group cause I live near the end of a penisula and this guy and his female partner were walking toward the water and running out room to go because 4 cruisers shows up very fast and failed to find anyone.
Last year there were two Jamican men with some sort of "Charity".......It litteraly just said "Charity" on the side of thier bucket! For two weeks they would walk around a very busy intersection and cause delys by running around the street.
And last night in Wal-Mart some guy walks up to me while I was getting some camping stuff and gives me the same "Communication points" story and hands me a list of magazines I can subscribe too if I give him $30 cash. The list he showed me was ripped out of a READERS DIGEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I told him I was not interested as I noticed the lovely track marks on his arm and he left. About 10 minutes later in automotive he walks up to me again and continues to pressure me. I told the kid to screw and went and told a guy at the sporting goods counter what this bone head was doing to other customers and me. Security caught up with him and escorted him off the property.
Im not so much against door to door salesmen, but to me its soo obviois its not legit. If it was one person thats different but this seems to be a like its an organized scam. But anyway enough of me babbeling, have any of you been getting this type of stuff in the summer? Anyone know what thier story is? I see them all over the Northshore in other towns.
