A cable company in Sioux Falls is warning the public about a door-to-door sales scam.

Midco spokesperson Paige Pearson Meyer said that a phony saleperson has been visiting neighborhoods, falsely telling customers that he works for the company. Once inside a home, he will offer new services under the promise that it is included in the customer’s bill.

Pearson Meyer says that the salesperson actually works for a rival satellite-based television and Internet provider. In a press release, Midco detailed the report of a man visiting customer homes in Sioux Falls.

Midco has contacted Sioux Falls police and the state’s attorney general office. If you believe someone is misrepresenting themselves, you are asked to call the police.

To confirm whether someone is a company representative, Midco advises customers to call 800-888-1300.
