Aggressive door to door sales tactics reported in South Bend


South Bend's 311 citizen service line has been receiving calls about people using aggressive tactics in selling goods and services door to door.  Many of the salespeople are licensed by the city, but a license does not condone actions that cause residents concern for their safety.

South Bend Police Captain, Phil Trent, warns citizens to be aware when any person comes to you door that you do not recognize.  "Have your phone in your hand," Trent said, "if it's someone you don't know; That is not a bad practice to just have your phone in your hand all the time when you're answering the door and be ready to call the police."
