    To: Arrest Them: Not a good idea to invite them into the house and then hold them. You could be charged with kidnapping by holding someone against their will, after inviting them inside. Just call the police and let them do their job.

    Rocky Mount. It was a van full and some were dropped off in neighborhoods and visited every house in the neighborhood. Asked for $10,000 initially then $212. Stated it was to help out with disabled persons and their homes. This particular guy said he had Tourette's and he was from WV. Needless to say, he left empty handed and very angry!!

    What city did you encounter them in? I hope they all get arrested. Everyone needs to be informed about this horrible scam. We all, as citizens, need to fight back and not let these guys target anyone else. I say invite them into your home, if you have someone else there to help you, call the police and don't let the scammer leave your house until police have arrived.
