GREEN BAY, Wis. — Green Bay Police are warning the public about a potential door-to-door scam in the area.

Police say the department received a phone call from the State Consumer Protection Agency to warn of possible scammers in the area. Police say a group of suspected scammers go door to door selling asphalt resealing/repair services to homeowners. Police say the group is selling their services without a permit.

"Additionally, this company sends out mailers, people will call for their services (usually the elderly) and then overpay," Green Bay Police say in a Facebook post warning the public.

All door to door sales that do not have a physical location in Brown County have to have a seller’s permit through the City of Green Bay, police say. If you're suspicious of a door-to-door salesman, you are encouraged to call the police's non-emergency line at (920) 391-7450.
