[ARCHIVED] Scam Alert

Color Police Star

On 4-2-19 at approximately 4:15pm, two solicitors followed a UPS driver onto a property and then tried to solicit the homeowners to have work done on their driveway. When the homeowners refused their services, the two solicitors became belligerent. 

The two solicitors spoke with a British accent and were last seen traveling in a large white truck with orange cones in the back. These solicitors appear to be part of a larger network. 

Other police agencies in the area have reported similar incidents with this same type of scam resulting in elderly victims losing money. 

No groups have permits to operate this type of business in the Town of Atherton.

If you are contacted by these people, or see them driving around in your neighborhood, please contact the Atherton Police Department at 650-688-6500.
