Community alert: False solicitation offer reported

-A A +A

A heavy-set man misrepresenting himself as an agent of The News-Enterprise reportedly has been going house to house in the Governor’s Manor area of Elizabethtown offering a subscription offer.

This individual, who is not associated with the company, was carrying two-week-old copies of the newspaper and a flyer. He also failed to provide any form of identification when asked by the resident who reported the false solicitation to the newspaper office.

From time to time, The News-Enterprise does have contract carriers or staff members who call on potential subscribers but no active campaign is underway. All representatives should be able to show valid ID. Residents with questions about an offer are encouraged to contact the newspaper circulation staff at 270-505-1770.

Authorities have been contacted. Anyone who encounters this person should contact local police.
