The Summit County Office of Consumer Affairs is warning residents in Bath and Richfield townships about a woman going door to door selling educational study guides and software for kids for Southwestern Advantage.
The woman is not licensed with the county.
Complaints have indicated that she is presenting a county license application form as her license, the county said Thursday.
The Office of Consumer Affairs said residents should ask to see and verify credentials of solicitors. Residents who don’t want to be approached by solicitors, canvassers or peddlers should post “No Soliciting” notices by their entrance doors and contact local law enforcement if an unlicensed solicitor visits.
The county’s “Solicitors, Peddlers, Canvassers License” is bright yellow and contains a license number, expiration date, name of solicitor, company soliciting for, and that the license has to be shown. The Office of Consumer Affairs licenses solicitors for Bath, Northfield Center and Richfield townships only.
