Greenwood and Phinney business owners should be on lookout for possible book selling scam

July 14th, 2016 · Comments

Dr. Jason Hooyman from Hooyman Chiropractic at NW 85th Street and 3rd Avenue NW says a man came to his office on Wednesday, claiming to be selling books to donate to Seattle Children’s Hospital, and was fairly aggressive in his sales pitch, although he didn’t have any books with him.

The man said he was an Iraq war veteran and that he was blind in one eye. He was about 6 feet tall with brown hair, and slightly overweight. He was dressed in shorts and a polo shirt.

KOMO had a story on Wednesday about Queen Anne businesses that were approached by a man with a similar description and the same sales pitch. Those business owners believed it to be a scam.

Did anyone else encounter this man?
