Be on the watch for suspicious door to door salesmen

Released by Smith County Sheriff's Office

TYLER, TX - A group of individuals have been working the Southern Portions of Smith County this week selling ADVANTAGE Wonder Cleaner.

Residents reported some of the salesmen being very aggressive and eager to get into homes. One resident watched a salesman walk into his neighbor's back yard after he did not get an answer at the front door. The subject was observed looking into the back windows of the home.

Individuals selling this product have received bad reviews from other parts of the Country. It has been reported the product used for demonstration works very well but the product that is sold to consumers does not work as well or does not work at all.

Some individuals selling this product have been linked to IDENTITY THEFT and some have felony convictions from other states.

The Smith County Sheriff's office is warning residents not to let unknown persons into their homes. If residents choose to purchase the product; pay in cash and DO NOT release credit card, debit card, or checking account information. Once an individual has your checking account, debit card, or credit card numbers; your accounts could be wiped out in a matter of hours.

Residents are urged to use caution when dealing with door to door salesmen of any product and report any suspicious activity to Law Enforcement.
