The Ocean City Police Department is warning residents about a possible door-to-door scam happening throughout the city.
Police say they have received multiple reports by homeowners being approached by a frozen food salesman. The company operates under the name “Anchor’s Away” and usually approaches the home unannounced, targeting elderly persons who can be easily intimidated by a high-pressure sales technique. This technique involves residents committing to a large sum of money as a down payment for products to be delivered at a later date.
The vehicles being used are described as a white colored pickup truck, or sport utility vehicle with no identifying marks, said Captain Ang of the Ocean City Police Department.
Ocean City Police state they have been unable to locate a legitimate food company in Ocean City operating under “Anchor’s Away”.
Captain Ang reminds residents that if anyone approaches your home make sure they produce valid photo identification, and if you have any doubts or suspicions to contact police immediately.
