The Boyette Springs HOA has received several complaints in recent weeks about an increase in the number of aggressive solicitors in door-to-door visits. Some are criminals casing your home. Others are local businesses who want you to set up appointments for an expert to meet with you at a later date.
Residents are not required nor should they feel compelled to answer the door if the resident believes that the individual is a solicitor. If you feel threatened or in immediate danger, call 911 immediately.
