It was just a little butt snuff cone can ash trey, no big loss...but seriously, my ash trey? :banghead:banghead:banghead

I went to an FDLE training about something very similar. Was it one of those teens in running shoes nervously looking around? They come in waves being delivered from vans who watch them work. The very real concern is that suchactivity is often kids whomare desperate runawaysthat are being extorted by very nasty people indeed. Next time, if ever, they show up ask them if they need help. If they just stare at you or run away call the cops. You might save a life (if not several).

Also could be a ploy to scout your house for break-in or home invasion, or, just a part-time job.

I tend to err on the side of caution.

Several are dirtbags.....sometimes when checked out, they have warrants on them. Also, ifin they don't have permits they can be arrested. When in doubt call law enforcement...

The meat truck has come by my house several times in the last month. I love those guys. If you catch them when the freezer is broken you can get a hell of a deal.

They showed up at my door several months ago. Actually it was a nice looking young lady trying to sell some magazines. I was surprised. and then I blew her off.I fail for this scam several years ago. It wasn't long before I had forgotten about it. Well months went by when all of a sudden we started gettingESPN magazines from hell. I asked my wife where in the hell are alll these damn magazines coming from. She said it was that 75.00 scam you fell for. I said "oops"
