Waco police warns public of scammer going door to door

WACO, TX (KXXV) -

Waco PD is warning the public about a man who is scamming residents by going door to door and saying he needs money for different situations.

According to police, the man is going door to door and telling people that he needs money because he got locked out of his house. He will claim he is a neighbor down the street or that he knows a family member or friend.

Other stories he tells to get money include: his car broke down, he needs gas money or his luggage went missing so he needs money to buy new clothes.

Waco police have received a lot of calls about this happening, but since the people are voluntarily giving money, there is no crime being committed.

Police say this has been going on for 2-3 weeks and it is happening in various parts of Waco.

Police have not released a description of the man.
