Wilson County Pct. 3 Constable George Scoggins and the La Vernia Police Department advised Jan. 14 for area residents and business owners to beware an unlicensed sales crew hawking cleaning products in the county.
Scoggins said the sales crewmembers, many from out of state, were selling a product called Protech, also known as “green water,” for $160 for 2 gallons. The product is available from several sources for approximately $35, according to several Internet sites.
In addition, Scoggins said the salespersons are charging state sales tax, for which “they had no apparent authority,” he said.
“They have been asked to leave La Vernia and not return,” Scoggins said. “At least two of them have warrants from out of state, but the states wouldn’t extradite them.”
When last encountered, the sales crew was in a grey older-model Chevrolet mini-van, Scoggins said.
He advises anyone who encounters these salespersons to contact the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office at 830-393-2535.
