Edwardsburg police warn residents of potential scamPublished 2:32pm Friday, September 20, 2013
Ontwa Township-Edwardsburg Police Chief Kenneth Ray is advising local residence of a potential scam.
According to Wray, a group of scam artists may be representing themselves as Kirby Vacuum salesman.
It was reported that there is a group of salesmen going around selling Kirby Vacuums that are not a licensed dealer representative. Ask for identification and make a note of their information.
If they show up at your house please be polite if they don’t have identification then tell them that you are not interested and then call the police to respond.
See if you can get a description of the vehicle and direction of travel and give it to the dispatcher when you call. Any help you can give police will help others.
Always be on the alert for scams. Remember if it’s too good to be true it probably is.
If they tell you a member of your family is in trouble, try contacting that person or his nearest relative and see if they really are in trouble or if they know where that person really is.
Never wire money to an unknown location or person to help someone you do know.
