I'm sure it's a longshot, but is there anything you can do about unwanted door to door soliciatation?

I can't leave my door open anymore. I don't answer, they keep knocking. One guy tried to tell me he was the landlord(I have lot rent)I told him to go to hell. I have to keep my curtains closed, can't even enjoy my screen doors. Just stupid.

  • You can get a sign from the local office store and post it on your door.
    Call the City and see what the laws are in your area.
    If someone comes ask for their license.

  • Be nice, kindly decline if not interested. My husband used to be a door to door salesman.

  • That is crazy, I have no idea. But I hope that you get some peace. Have you tried a simple no soliciting sign and then tell that you are going to call the Cops if they do not leave you along? Is it the same people?

  • I'd say put a sign up, but that never stops the political canvassers and religion touters from knocking on my door. I guess they figure if they can spread their message to just one more person, it negates disrespecting my wishes.

  • It's either these guys selling meat, or these guys that pretend to be in highschool and try to sell magazines. I have nothing wrong with sales, but when you lie and manipulate and continue to beat on my door for ten minutes I get a little pissy.

  • Put up a sign that clearly says NO SOLICITING... I have one on my door, and I even have a copy of it on my profile here if you want to see it...
