Police warn public about door to door scam

CHARLESTON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - Charleston City police are getting calls about people coming to residents' doors claiming to sell magazines.

Calls have been coming from Johns and James Island, West Ashley and Daniel Island. The scammers claim they are members of a local sports team, but they are not.

Police say if these people bother you, tell them you are not interested and call police. You can also post a no sales person sign on your door.

Officers say a peddler's permit is required for these people.
