Not a solicitor, but somebody going door-to-door – and just maybe, publishing a worried WSB’er’s tale will lead to reassurance that this was legit. Or not. Read on:
I am usually quite cautious with solicitors but I uncharastically let me guard down today when this nice but sketchy looking man smoking a cigarette knocked on my door this afternoon.
Before I opened the door I asked who it was and he said a neighbor, from down the street. I opended the door and he had a black lab (with a scarf around his neck) & asked me if he could come back and cut holly branches off my tree for wreaths he was making for a Northwest Harvest Auction. I didn’t recogonize him but not only did I say sure, come by anytime but I gave him my name. It would be nice to believe that he was a nice man doing a nice thing but I just don’t trust people anymore unless I really know them. I regret the whole encounter.
He said his black lab was Lucy and his name was Leroy. White male 6ft, standard build, dirty blonde beard, NW Construction worker look. I am so suscipious of his intentions and now so worried about if and when he comes back. Please post to warn the Arbor Heights neighborhood. I hestitate to give my exact location but I’m on 98th between 37th and 39th Ave SW.
