Door-to-door sales woman who draws suspicion has permit

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) — After receiving numerous questions and concerns about a woman selling books door-to-door in northwest Bakersfield, Eyewitness News discovered the woman has a legal sales permit.

Police confirmed that Gabriela Chvojkova, who is going door-to-door selling children's educational materials, was questioned in June by officers. They found she had a legal permit to sell the materials.

Concerns grew recently among viewers over a circulated Facebook post that stated Chvojkova may have been a human trafficker. Chvojkova reportedly asked residents for the genders and ages of their children when she sold her materials.

Eyewitness News confirmed Chvojkova is a dealer for Southwestern Advantage, a Nashville, Tenn-based company that recruits and employs college students worldwide to run their own sales business to offset educational expenses, according to the company's website.

There is no evidence that Chvojkova is connected to any kind of human trafficking ring. However, a police spokesperson did say concerned residents should never answer their doors to anyone they believe may be dangerous.
