THIS IS A WARNING: To beware of thieves posing as solicitors or inspectors. Strangers seeking admittance to premises as sales- ^ ' H ' i ' ' men, , solicitors; or inspectors SHOULD NOT BE ADMITTED UNTIL THEIR CREDENTIALS HAVE BEEN CHECKED and VERIFIED THROUGH DEPENDABLE LOCAL PERSONS. * In many cases strangers, without verified credentials, are thieves or "spotters" for professional "criminals and according to police records lack of caution by the householders in admitting , such strangers often results in costly property losses and bitter , experiences. It Is natural to expect an influx of peddlers during the spring and summer months — as with the dandelion on the lawn the peddler appears on the porch offering through a cleverly prepared sales talk "something free"? to gain admittance to the home so as to , show their wares. Often times HIGH , PRESSURE METHODS are used in securing an order and 1 in most every instance there is required a c'ash-in-advance payment. 1 '" ' DO NOT PAY CASH IN AD, VANCE' TO STRANGERS— Know first who you are dealing with. Many times, checks have been given to the peddler and later the party issuing. the check has made attempts, to cancel the order and stop payment on the check only , that a third and innocent as cashed the check. On ,.,thef|a.ce of it "this is a poor way to do business." i ,/ \ ...:...'•• ' Jt'S better to be SAFE than sorry. BE SURE YOU KNOW WHO THJ3, PEDDLER IS before you permit him to enter your home.
