District Attorney warns of door-to-door salesmen

Johnson County District Attorney Steve Howe is reminding residents to exercise caution when encountering individuals soliciting sales or donations door-to-door. This week Police in Leawood and Overland Park received complaints regarding door-to-door magazine salesman with an out of state company.

The District Attorney's Office says that transient merchants are often required to obtain a special license to conduct business in Johnson County. They are also required to provide a three-day right to cancel any sale made to a resident at their home. Often, these businesses conduct sales in Kansas for a short period of time and then leave the area, making cancellation or resolution of complaints difficult. In some cases, citizens pay for magazines or other merchandise and never receive the product.

Your local city office can assist residents who would like to post a 'No Solicitation' sign at their home. Door-to-door salesmen are not allowed to knock on doors where there is a no solicitation sign posted.

If you or someone you know has purchased magazines or donated money to a door-to-door salesman affiliated with Allied Group, Allied Magazine Sales, Absolute Marketing or Marquis Fulfillment Agency within the last two weeks, you are asked to contact the Johnson County District Attorney's Consumer Hotline at 913-715-3003.
