Claims Of Door To Door Scam Not Checking Out

An eastern Kentucky Police Chief says a door to door scam may have cheated dozens of people out of their money.

Coal Run Police Chief Todd Akers says people are claiming they are selling magazine subscriptions for a charity or a college, but he says their stories do not check out.

He says no local charities or colleges say they are selling magazine subscriptions.

He says buyers gave them anywhere from $40 to $130, and now he is investigating this as a scam.

“We can't confirm or deny anything at this point. It's a waiting game to see if what you bought will arrive in 120 days. If not, then we'll follow-up with charges,” says Todd Akers, Coal Run Police Chief.

Akers says if someone knocks on your door selling magazines, you should call your local police department.
