Nearby neighborhoods also reporting door-to-door scams

Officers from the Cherokee Park and Richland-West End neighborhood associations have recently echoed reports received recently about door-to-door scams in their neighborhoods. Please be cautious about anyone who knocks on your door asking for money and confirm that their requests are legitimate. If you suspect criminal activity, report it by calling the Metro Police non-emergency line at (615) 862-8600.

    Not only are scam artists out, but a male and female representing Pinnacle Security are going door to door in Sylvan Park, and even after being asked to leave the property, will beat on your front door and harrass the homeowner. Police had to be called.

  2. Thanks for sharing this. I've witnessed this scam, too, and they are pushy. I've heard several other reports as well, so they are canvassing our neighborhood. Don't fall for it, folks!

  3. Thanks for the warning. Someone came by our house as well (I wasn't there), and while they weren't rude, they were definitely pushy...

    Rhino Books was robbed by thieves who broke in and stole the cash drawer late Sunday Aug 24th. This is our third robbery since opening in Sylvan park. Please advise

  5. Solicitations are always a nuisance, but this alarm one is worse than average. Fred, I'm so sorry to hear about the robbery at Rhino Books. I've sent you a message to follow up.
