Milton PD Warns of Scam

At approximately 10:15 a.m. this morning the Milton Police Department became aware of a traveling sales scam taking place in Milton. City hall staff reported to us that a citizen had contacted them inquiring about the status of a seller’s permit for a group known as Face to Face technologies. I spoke with the complainant/victim who informed me that on Tuesday, 6/9/09 between the hours of 4:50-5:15 p.m. a woman walking door to door asked her to purchase magazine subscriptions. The woman did make a purchase from her and became suspicious when she inquired about the required City of Milton Seller’s permit. What has us believing this is a true financial scam is that the address of the victim who bought the subscriptions was never obtained, and Internet research on this company indicates it is a fairly common traveling financial “scam”.

The suspect in this incident is described as a white female between 18-19 years of age with dark black hair and Star tattoos on her right arm. She referred to herself as “Amber” to the person she sold to. There is no vehicle information associated with this complaint at this time.

If anyone who sees an individual matching this description or has anyone attempt to sell you a magazine from Face to Face Technologies, I would ask that you have them contact the Milton Police Department immediately. Further information about this or anyone wishing to provide information may contact the Milton Police Police Department at 868-6910 or by e-mail at
