It is the time of year again where solicitors are out. We have taken reports and had contact with solicitors from Gracious Hands who did not have permits. Please ask to see the solicitor’s permit because each person soliciting must have their own permit. Fox9.com has a news story about a soliciting scam which is tied to Gracious Hands, but two other companies were also mentioned. If you have an aggressive solicitor, or one that does not have a permit, please call 911 and report it. A lot of solicitors are not from Minnesota and many have warrants for their arrest.
