Police Warn Of Door To Door Satellite Equipment Scam

April 15, 2024

Police have issued a warning about a possible door to door scam in the area.

The Atmore Police Department said they have received reports of individuals going from home-to-home claiming to be representatives of satellite companies and requesting to enter residences to inspect satellite equipment.

“This is a play to case your house,” Atmore PD said, warning not to let them inside.

NorthEscambia.com has received similar reports from readers in the Walnut Hill, Dogwood Park, McDavid, Enon and Molino areas. Residents have reported one of the individuals as driving a grey or silver four-door car, possibly a 2022 Nissan Sentra.

    There were two, dark hair guy and blonde. Luckily I had my dogs out. They gave me a name of a lady they were looking for and her address. I told them they obviously went too far and they needed to go back where they came from. Pretty sure my dog’s have them a good message!

    Recently I noticed a man walking door to door in our Molino neighborhood. When I questioned his reason for walking between houses, he told me he was selling lawn care. I explained that he was in the wrong neighborhood to be going door to door and could possibly be caught in a bad situation.
    When I asked where his car was located, he got smart then explained it was down the road. He was also not in uniform.
    It’s sad to see for those that make a living this way, but this is not how one should do door to door sales. If you’re an unexpected visitor, in an unmarked car or no car, and you knock on my door, be prepared to explain yourself to Mr. Smith & Mrs. Wesson.

    The young man that came to my house,was light haired and driving a blue car.He knew my name.He never said his name,just went right into his reason for being here.He was very slow of speech and was very nervous,but polite.The car was a nice pretty blue.

    Add Flomaton to the list. A young man driving a newer dark gray Volkswagen model car, 4 door, came to our house.
