Be alert for newspaper scammers
The News and Tribune has received multiple calls about a subject going door-to-door selling subscriptions to the News and Tribune.
The News and Tribune does not solicit door-to-door and anyone doing so offering subscriptions to the newspaper is participating in an attempted scam. Do not give them money or personal information. Instead, call the local police.
