BEWARE this scam of door to door salespeople with sad stories, asking you to give donations to help inner city school kids by purchasing books and magazines.
Ironically, on the back of my receipt, it says they are solicitors working for money, and are prohibited from saying they are helping underpriveliged persons...interesting.
The guy was very pushy, asked for water and came in my house, looked around at everything and then laid on a guilt trip that "the least i could do to help" was to order something from him.
He also showed me a log of people who felt compelled to share comments about his honesty, including a few of my neighbors. Then, after i handed him my check, he coached me on what to write, adding to his little list. wow, was i gullible!
oh yeah, i never received the item i ordered and called only to find out they don't even sell that item - he was working from a fake merchandise catalog.
I recommend you NEVER ever buy things from strangers knocking at your door - it is too risky.
