To the editor:
Beware of traveling sales crews selling magazines in Flagstaff. These crews often consist of young people from a troubled past who are being exploited by a “handler” who orchestrates or drives them across the country in a van, stopping in towns along the way to exploit as many people as possible. They claim they are working for “points” to win a prize, a trip, an education, etc. By the time complaints start filing in, they are long gone.
