The Winnebago Police Department is warning all Rockford residents about a door-to-door scam that has first surfaced in the Village of Winnebago.

The season of joy and giving may be upon us, but so is the season of scamming and stealing as well. As always local police stress that we all use caution while out shopping and in parking lots this holiday season, but now we all must be leery of any door-to-door solicitations as well. In particular, one where a man a woman are trying to sell home cleaning services.


To avoid this situation I saw we all just don't answer our door to any unexpected visitors or people we don't know. It may not be the nicest thing to do, but I can't help but think it may be the smartest.
