It’s been brought to my attention there are some scammers knocking on Chester doors in the evening posing as census workers and robbing folks. This occurred on West 7th Street.

Census forms were mailed out to Chester last week and the census bureau expects you’ll respond. Only when they don’t get a response will they be knocking on doors and that’s not scheduled to start until April. Chances are, with the coronavirus pandemic expected to peek right about that time, there’s no way in hell you’re going to see any census folks knocking on doors any time soon.

Desperate times are going to result in desperate measures and there are some desperate folks around here who will stop at nothing to survive.

Be smart. Don’t be a victim.


Someone put this letter on Facebook…
