    Default Beware - Sellers of Children's Books Door to Door

    Here are two short items that I believe should be considered for reading. They involve door-to-door selling. In this case the sellers, foreigners, are taking down personal information on children and parents.

    I live in rural central Illinois. A car pulls into the driveway with a
    Virginia license plate. Out walks this very big man with a very thick
    Russian accent and proceeds to tell me he's in the area selling childrens
    books. He said he saw my playground in my yard for my kids. Shows me a book
    where he has been to the small towns in that area selling these books and
    where the parents have given their names,their kids names and ages. And I
    can't help but be suspicious the whole time because this guy was very
    adamant about trying to speak to my wife I can only assume why. After
    telling him several times I was not interested and would not give him any
    info on my family I practically had to get downright rude to him, after he
    kept asking when would be a better time to come back. He did finally
    leave.
    The thing that got me was there was nothing special at all about these
    children learning books. He did not have a business card or any form of ID.
    This guy clearly was in great shape and way too big to be a traveling
    childrens book salesman from Virginia.
    Call me crazy(most of my friends already do) but why would anyone give a
    complete stranger that much information without any concern...

    Confirmation of Men with strong accents selling kids books and asking for
    families information. The girl I work with here in fairbanks told me about
    a month ago that a salesman came to her door trying to sell her children's
    learning books for an outrageous price. When I read the story on your
    website today, after I got to work, I asked her if the man that came to her
    door a month ago had a strong accent. She said yes, and he did not appear
    to be the door-to-door type person, more the miilitary type. He was very
    adamant about getting info from her and she had to be very blunt and stern
    with him. This is very alarming to think that they are doing this all
    across the nation.

    I agree ! I had some people come by my place trying to sell me some religious books. They told me that if I did not worship the religious texts they did, I would burn in hell. I told them I was already aware of this scam where people go door to door and try to peddle " childrens books" .

    The shot below if from about half was down my "driveway" in a rural area of Florida.

    I get few salesmen of any kind.

    With foreigners not having to learn our language, I took a little different approach
