Auburn, Ala. - The Auburn Police Division has received several recent complaints regarding solicitors operating without a business license or using questionable practices. Door-to-door solicitation for items relating to lawn maintenance, magazines, or offering to pave driveways are some of the latest examples of the products or services being solicited. Victims have complained of being quoted a price and then billed for an excessive amount after delivery of service(s) or items. If a solicitor solicits your residence without a City of Auburn-issued business license, or if you believe you are being scammed, please contact police immediately. Residents should take note of physical descriptions, vehicle information, and directions of travel that may help officers contact the individuals involved. Again, and most importantly, contact police immediately.
For more information, or to inform police about a solicitor, contact the Auburn Police Division at 501-3110.
