Consumer Fraud Alert Door-to-Door Alarm Sales

Posted on June 23rd, 2015 by Alert Protective

A potential consumer fraud has been sweeping the country. College students are going door to door during the summer months offering a “free” security system in exchange for allowing a new alarm sign to be placed in front of the house.

After signing the contract, homeowners are finding out that the new security system is not really “free” since the system requires a 3 to 5 year monitoring agreement at $40 to $50 per month. In the end, the free system could actually cost nearly $3,000!

We urge you to contact us, your local police or the Better Business Bureau and report any suspicious door-to-door alarm sales people in your neighborhood. ALL sales people selling security systems are required by law to carry a photo identification badge that lists company name, address, phone number and their license number.
