Scammer trying to sell pesticides over the phone

North Dakota Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring is warning the public about a scam in which the caller tried to sell pesticides over the phone.

Goehring urges people not to buy pesticides or to give any credit information to anyone who contacts them by phone. Goehring adds that it is illegal to sell a pesticide in North Dakota that is not registered with the North Dakota Department of Agriculture.

Victims of this scam should report it to the North Dakota Attorney General's office.
