CITY LOYALTY ASSOCIATION Wednesday, October Do Not Pay Cash In Advance to ITINERANT PEDDLERS Warning from the CHIEF of to the Citizens and Housewives of This Is a warning to beware of Strangers posing as solicitors, salesmen or inspectors, seeking admittance to your homes. It is given in the hopes of protecting the citizens of this community. Strangers should not be admitted to your homes until their Credentials have been checked up and verified and that you are sure they are local people . . . representatives of local business firms. In many cases the person calling at your home rep- " resenting himself or herself as a solicitor, sales agent, meter reader or inspector is a thief, bouse prowler, or a "spotter" for such crooks ... just getting the "lowdown" on the premises for future references. Beware of the Crook who goes about renting rooms, or houses willing to tender you a check as the advance rental payment . . . this check is for more than the initial rent and the secures the difference in CASH . . . and that is the last you hear from him. Do not pay cash in advance en an order as too often the customer never receives anything for his money. Do not issue checks to a Stranger on an order as many times these checks have been "altered" and later cashed by an innocent party. In case you are suspicious phone the Police at once ... do not delay as it will aid the police department in locating the peddler at once. John Ridgdill CHIEF OF POLICE Hope, Arkansas
