General Narrative

K.P.D. Detectives are investigating a suspect in connection with a door to door sales scam and are asking any potential additional victims to come forward.

Earlier in December, 2013, Kingsport Police Detectives were alerted that Timothy D. English, Jr. was conducting door to door sales throughout the City of Kingsport. Mr. English has been peddling a product known as “Advantage, The Wonder Cleaner” which is distributed by RNC Sales, Inc. DBA Young Enterprise, based out of Tampa, FL.

Detectives have learned that Mr. English was a former employee of RNC Sales; however, his employment has been terminated, and he therefore has no intention or capability of providing the product for which he has accepted payment. Since his termination, Mr. English has continued to take orders for this product and has continued taking advance payments with an empty promise of a later delivery of the product.

Detectives are asking for anyone who has placed an order with Mr. English during the past few weeks to contact them, because they have most likely been defrauded. The K.P.D. Criminal Investigations Division can be reached at 423-229-9429.
