SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — Officials in San Francisco are warning of a new scam that’s been popping up throughout the city.
Criminals are knocking on doors, pretending to be soliciting business for their fence company.
While homeowners walk to the back yard to show the contractor their fences, another man ransacks their house, stealing valuables.
According to the San Francisco Police Department, in the past five days, six elderly women have been targeted in this scam.
