Pulaski County sheriff's deputies and the county school system are warning residents to beware of a possible scam involving door-to-door sale of books.

The sheriff's department said people were approaching homes stating that they were selling books to raise money for the school district.

Pulaski County Public Schools officials said they are in no way connected with such sales and are not sanctioning any door-to-door fundraising, the sheriff's department said in a news release.

Anyone who is contacted by people making such claims is asked to call the Pulaski County 911 Center and report the activities, the sheriff's department said.

If possible, callers should write down a description of the person or people, any vehicle they might be driving, and the license tag number, deputies said.
