DUNDALK, Md. (WJZ) — Baltimore County Police on Tuesday arrested a man they said ran a scheme in which he went door-to-door selling fake newspaper subscriptions.
Matthew Aldao, 33, was arrested Tuesday morning in Dundalk on a warrant service, police said.
On Monday, police said Aldao would travel to different neighborhoods in the county and surrounding areas to get victims to sign up for a fraudulent newspaper subscription and then give him between $20 and $60 for an initial subscription fee.
The scam went on for at least a year and often targeted the elderly, police said.
