List of door-to-door peddlers banned from doing business in Kansas

Posted: Updated:
TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -

Kansans can now access an online list of door-to-door peddlers who have been prohibited from doing business in the state. 

Attorney General Derek Schmidt said in a news release that the Kansas Legislature passed a law in 2016 making it a crime for a person to violate a court order prohibiting that person from engaging in door-to-door sales. 

The list, which is on the attorney general's consumer protection website, contains 25 peddlers banned in Kansas as of Thursday. Schmidt said it will be updated as new peddlers are banned or if peddlers are removed from the list.

Each entry also contains a link to the court order that banned the door-to-door peddler from Kansas. 

"Deceptive or otherwise illegal door-to-door sales are among the most common consumer protection problems reported to our office," Schmidt said. "This new listing provides quick access for Kansans to learn which violators have been so egregious that a court has prohibited them from continuing to operate in Kansas."

Kansans who have received a door-to-door sales pitch by an entity on the list should contact their local police department or sheriff or contact the attorney general’s Consumer Protection Division by phone at (800) 432-2310 or online at InYourCornerKansas.org.
