    We have had two visits from the same person claiming to sell magazine subscriptions for an LLC. On both occasions, he has been extremely aggressive and confrontational when asked to leave. He even tried the door handle before we answered. Today, when he was asked to leave the property he became irritated and loud. He accused us of being racist, and brought a second person around to show our place to and point us out. Not sure if this is a legitimate service but the manner that this person is going about doing business makes us extremely uncomfortable and almost bullied.

    There has been talk on ND about this in Fremont/Ballard recently. I found this article insightful:

    I’m not 100% sure if this is the activity that is happening in our neighborhoods, but based on my experience two nights ago and having seen the kids get dropped off in a van has me fairly convinced. Overall a sad tale.
