Sales scams at your front door, state warns

The Associated Press

AUGUSTA, Maine — Maine business regulation officials are warning homeowners to be wary of door-to-door sales activities.

The warning from the Department of Professional and Financial Regulation follows reports to police departments by residents in several southern Maine communities of door-to-door salespersons being too aggressive and arriving late in the evening.

Commissioner Anne Head says that while many legitimate companies exist, home repair and door-to-door selling scams continue to occur.

Consumers are advised to check the license status of any door-to-door seller of products or services, and to report concerns or possible violations of law to police. Door-to-door sellers are typically required to be licensed through the state.
