Do Jehovah witnesses go around trying to sell stuff? Or are these guys criminal?

2 men dressing all in black went to my grandparents house claiming that they were Jehovah witnesses and they tried to sell them stuff. My grandfather said they seemed suspicious and they cam at almost 10 pm. We're these me scoping out a robbery or just telling their beliefs?

What you're describing is a scam and probably scoping for a robbery. Jehovah's Witnesses don't go house to house late at night, they don't wear all black, and never "sell" anything. All literature is free and there is no obligation involved. We're just normal people who care enough about our neighbors to offer to talk about the Bible with those who are interested in God and the future.

I don't think Jehovah Witnesses would come that late at night and they never try to sell stuff. These were scammers and this should be reported to the police..

Jehovah's Witnesses stop preach door to door at 3 or 4pm. And will never try to sell you anything. Never open your door to strangers at night.

Not criminals. Their religion is sincere but very self-serving and self-centered. They do try to raise money by trying to get you to subscribe to their religious publication, Watchtower.
The Jovies dont drop by at 10:00 pm and dont wear black. They wear normal, every day clothes. They only thing they would try to sell is Watchtower. Your parents should call local police immediately and descibe the men, get the incident on record in case there is a crime involving your parents or someone else in the area. its possible they were looking for an unoccupied home to rob.

JWs do not try to sell the Watchtower. Our work is based only on voluntary donations. You do not have to subscribe to the Watchtower either. What has led you to believe that our religion is self-centered?

Jehovah's Witnesses to do not sell anything. Their literature is financed completely on voluntary donations, and they do not preach at 10pm. Also, they do not dress all in black. Please be careful.
