Suspicious Activity: Door to Door Salesmen

The Crime Prevention Unit of the Fayetteville Police Department would like to warn citizens about suspicious activity taking place in and around the Fayetteville area.


A gentleman is soliciting door to door claiming to be from Sears.  He usually begins his sales pitch with, “I am from Sears.  I don’t want you to be afraid.”  He is described as a black male approximately 5”10” average build, dark complexion, well dressed, clean shaven and is seen carrying a clip board.  


Sears has confirmed that they do not solicit door to door. 


Do not allow anyone into your home who you do not know.  Verify credentials and permits, etc before signing any contracts.  If the sale sounds too good to be true, it probably is. 


Citizens are asked to call 911 and report the activity when it happens. 


For more information, please call Crime Prevention, 433-1034.
