Pittsylvania County, VA has a plan in place that may force background checks for door to door salesmen. After county officials began getting 911 calls about the erratic behavior of vacuum cleaner salesmen, it was found that a group of five felons were acting as vacuum cleaner salesmen. Though there were no reports of any crimes begin committed, that was surely the plan that these people had in mind. Another case that came up in the county is where a salesman who worked door to door was found to have a phony address and phone number and never delivered the items that he sold. Incidents like this, though they are not common, could be dangerous.
County officials believe that making these changes, licensing and putting door to door salesmen through background checks, can eliminate rogue salesmen and will protect those who live in the county. Using a background check company like backgroundchecks.com could really help as well. They have several products like their instant Single State OneSEARCH. This product will search criminal records throughout the entire state, including county courts and sex offender registries. Taking the steps to make this plan an actual law could help keep the people of Pittsylvania County safe.
