PUNXSUTAWNEY — Punxsutawney Borough Council’s Public Safety Committee is warning residents to beware of possible scam artists who may be working their way through the area.
Mike Porada, Public Safety Committee chair, said he has received complaints from borough residents about alleged salespeople going around town and asking people if they could come into their house and demonstrate their products.
