Police: Group selling carpet cleaning may be a scam

December 9, 2011

When an Aiken resident opened her door to a group of door-to-door salesmen earlier this week, she unwittingly found herself in the middle of a possible scam.

The woman called Aiken Public Safety because the group of men, who said they were selling carpet cleaning services, became belligerent when she refused their offer, officials said. And it appears as if she isn't alone.

An Internet search of the West Columbia-based Roberts & Associates shows several people in the state had similar run-ins, officials said. From The Aiken Standard.
