SAN ANTONIO -

New San Antonio homeowners are the target of a new solicitation company papering homes with their flyers.

The flyer, delivered by a company called GeoTrek, looks like a parcel-delivery notice. 

When one of the numbers is called, however, an agent tries to sell you things instead.

The company will also sell your information to other companies if you choose to provide them with personal information.

GeoTrek uses the tax appraisal district to get information on new homeowners in town.

The practice, however, is perfectly legal.
