Chambersburg: Host to criminals, thugs, nekked West Virginians, and travelling salesmen.

I do feel sorry for this victimized couple.

Ok, so this article pretty much says "Watch For Scams". Honestly, who already doesn't watch for scams? It would be much more helpful if the PO would put some information about what this scam involves and how it is carried out.

I do feel sorry for the couple, but I did not get any information out of this article. Great job, PO!

The couple suggests Hispanic. Could've been Roma.
Gypsies still roam.

Unfortunately that's what this world is coming to. Most of these "scam artists" will attack the elderly. As seen in the article about the grandchildren stealing from their grandparents. It's a sad, sad world we live in. Times are tough, for everyone not just a few people. I wish the state police would put forth more effort in everything. There have been multiple break-ins around my home & all they say is if you see someone, call us, we'll be right out. Yeah, right out in 3 hours after you finish your coffee & doughnut. They definitely could have gone into more detail on this situation but it's much easier to cut it short & save their time. Frustration!

Probably Gypsies, as they at least speak English when they steal from you. I didn't see it mentioned that the thieves demanded a taxpayer funded translator accompany them to the scene of the crime, so probably not Hispanic...

Always check identification if not representing a company, Some are out to make an honest living, and it is common sense to check that those who offer to provide services be identified, before those services are ever commenced, or monies are exchanged, for services not yet rendered.

Also, all contractors are required to have a license that you could check. And, do not let solicitors inside your home.
