Eau Claire (WQOW) – Your doorbell rings, or there is a knock on your door. Somebody is trying to sell you something, but how do you know you can trust them?
When it comes to door-to-door salespeople, Eau Claire police officers said these sellers should have a direct sellers permit. Locals can obtain these permits through the city, and they are checked and monitored through the Eau Claire Police Department. But what can you do when suspicious salespeople come a knocking? Well, law enforcement recommend asking for proof.
“So, it is completely appropriate if somebody is coming to your door to ask to see their permit, see their identification, they should be identifying themselves,” said Bridget Coit of the Eau Claire Police Department.
Coit said if you are concerned, or the individual avoids identifying themselves, you can contact the Eau Claire non-emergency number at 715-839-4972.
