Two more encounters that your fellow West Seattleites wanted to share – read on:
Received tonight from Paul in Belvidere:
Between seven and 7:15 pm this evening an African American gentleman knocked on our door saying that he had talked to all of our neighbors and started naming them off with names we did not know and asked us to open the door. We pointed out the “No Soliciting” sign and he said he was not soliciting. He was well dressed with a navy or black jacket, white shirt and tie, closely cropped hair, in his early 20’s, lean and approximately 6 feet tall. He was quite persistent in trying to get us to open the door. This is a repeat of the type of activity that was occurring about 4-6 months ago.
And from Kristina, sent this afternoon:.
I live on 45th near Brandon [map]. Someone just rang my bell and my dog growled – which he doesn’t usually do. He was a nicely dressed, good looking young man/older teen (?), and he started to give me a sales pitch about helping him get ahead, get an education, or something. I think he was selling subscriptions to something – I didn’t wait to find out. He was peeved that I wouldn’t help him. On the up and up? I don’t know – but I hate door to door soliciting
