Police investigate possible door-to-door scam

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, N.C. -

Someone knocking at your door could be trying to steal your money.

Police are investigating a possible door to door scam and 9 On Your Side wants to make sure you know about it.

It's called the Sunshine Subscription Agency.

Online, the website is all smiles. Selling magazines with hopes of big houses, fast cars, and a woman who "can't believe she's making 50 grand a year!" it says.

But is this just tabloid truth?

Police say they've had complaints of people trying to sell magazines in Greenville and think it could be a scam.

So we did some digging ourselves.

A check of the Better Business Bureau shows the Florida based company has had complaints before. In fact they have an "F" rating.

A quick search on RipoffReport.com will show plenty more results of complaints all over the country, including our state. They are from customers and people claiming to be former employees.

We also checked city hall.

Every business who wants to sell door to door in Greenville has to get a business license to do so.

Turns out, there are no records for a Sunshine Subscription Agency. No license means they shouldn't be selling.

We called and emailed the sunshine subscription agency but haven't heard back yet.

They have a place on their website you can file a complaint but police say call them first.

If someone comes to your door you can always ask them to show you their business license before you decide you want to do business with them.
