Sanford police warn of door-to-door scam

SANFORD — Police here are warning residents that a door-to-door sales pitch isn’t what it seems and is asking for anyone who has had contact with two men knocking on doors to give them a call.

“Our agency has taken a report of a scam in the city,” police said in a statement. “ Two white males with facial hair operating a white mid-size sedan, possibly a Toyota, with New Hampshire plates going door-to -door. The men are claiming they are doing roofing quotes for Gendreau Roofing and asking to enter the home.”

Police said they’ve talked with Gendreau Roofing, and the company has confirmed  they do not conduct door-to-door sales and that the men do not work for their company. 

Police said if anyone has information or if the men come to your home  call them at 324-9170.
