More concerns about security salesmen

"...last year at this time is when all the door knockers and scammers came through our area."

I just want to remind all local seniors out there, last year at this time is when all the door knockers and scammers came through our area. Buyer beware!

These young people come to raise money for their college education (glad to see them working) but they all get put up in one house an spend the next few weeks knocking on doors and making promises they have been trained to do and convince people they are getting a good deal as it is free! Or is it?

Figure the payment out over a locked-in five-year contract, or look at the invoice when you try to cancel when you no longer require or dislike it or can’t get service work done on the systems.

They stated you have a 10-day cancellation time period not, try and get ahold of them to no return phone calls until your 10 days is up.

Last year when I stated I was not interested in them got firm put their foot in my doorway and wouldn’t let me close it, so I started asking around the area and learnt the information above from some that were scammed.

When I am looking for something wanted or required I look local that way I keep our local economy going, get local service. And most times receive a savings also. I look for it, and shop around, not have someone at my door pushing it down my throat!

Please be careful as I have seen so many people screwed, make sure you ask for ID and for licenses and permits and it will effect you later down the road.
