SUDBURY — Residents in several area cities and towns, including Sudbury, are reporting an uptick in fraudulent door-to-door solicitations, prompting a warning from local authorities.

The Sudbury Police Department alerted the community to a rise in complaints involving scammers posing as legitimate contractors offering services such as paving, masonry, and landscaping.

Officials emphasize that the town has a strict soliciting by-law designed to protect residents from falling prey to these deceptive practices.

Authorities urge residents to exercise caution if approached by door-to-door salespeople offering home improvement services.

The police department advises against engaging with these individuals and instead recommends that residents contact the police for further investigation.

Residents who encounter such solicitors are asked to call the Sudbury Police Department’s business line at 978-443-1042 to report the incident.
