Bogus Door To Door Meat Sales People In Maine

The Maine Attorney General’s Office is warning people that fraudulent door to door meat sellers have been active in our state lately.

When they arrive at your front door there’s a good chance that they’ll tell you that “a delivery fell through” and that “the meat is left over”.  They will then offer you the meat at a very good price.  Once the meat arrives more than likely you’ll find that it is more expensive than initially offered and of very poor quality.  To top if off, they will not let you cancel your order.

According to the press release, these scam artists often fail to obtain required licenses, and they often fail to give customers the required written and oral three-day cancellation notices.

Maine Attorney General Janet T. Mills goes on to say,:

Be wary of door-to-door meat and seafood sellers who stop unannounced.

Shop for the best prices — and focus on price per pound.

Insist on written notification of your three-day right to cancel.

Licensing is the law. All door-to-door sellers must be licensed or have a permanent place of business in Maine.

Write down license plate numbers and descriptions.

Of course, some door-to-door food sellers are legitimate. But if you have a concern or question, call  the Maine Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Division at 1-800-436-2131 or 626-8849 Monday-Friday 9:00 a.m. – noon and 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. or by email at consumer.mediation@maine.gov.
