Scammers continue to be successful because so many people are not getting the warnings of what these crooks are up to. The latest appears to be concentrated on the Macoupin County towns of Mt. Olive, Gillespie and Benld. Someone claiming to represent Bob Sanders Waste Systems is knocking on doors in the area, claiming to represent the company.
But that is not the case, according to a statement from Sanders. Macoupin County Sheriff Shawn Kahl tells The Big Z if you feel threatened, or just suspicious, call the police.

Kahl says in one recent situation, a resident called in a report of a suspicious vehicle in their neighborhood. While they were unable to find the car and question the driver, the license plate came back to a car registered near Chicago. Kahl says that is out of the ordinary, and they still don’t know why the driver stopped in numerous driveways that day.
