A young woman selling magazines door-to-door will not be earning points from a Chesterton resident, Chesterton Police said.

According to police, at 9:12 a.m. Friday the resident reported that a young woman came to her door selling magazines for “MD Network,” in an effort to earn enough sales points for a trip to Italy. The resident listened to her pitch and then wrote her a $50 check for a subscription.

Later, however, the resident “became suspicious about some of the things that this person told her,” contacted her bank, closed her account, and then contacted the woman to inform her of her decision.

“At this point there was no loss,” police said.

“It should be noted that this person did not have a town peddler’s license and all residents should know that a peddler’s license is required in most cases when a person goes door-to-door in residential areas,” police added.

“When someone is contacted by a door-to-door sales person, ask for their Chesterton peddler’s license, and if they do not have one call the CPD at 926-1131,” police said.
