CONSUMER ALERT: AVOID DOOR TO DOOR SALESPEOPLE

 

WARNING! High pressure salespeople are currently going door to door throughout Saskatchewan.

Many are pleasant looking and educated university students looking to make some quick cash. (THESE KIDS ARE OFFERED $350 A SALE IN RECRUITMENT ADS). These kids often wear shirts with the Honeywell logo and ask way too many questions about you and your alarm system. Once they have your name they will use it when they talk to your neighbors. Even if you don't sign up, they say you did. DO NOT GIVE THEM ANY INFO!!!

Sales Tactics include :

  • multiple reps at your door
  • blocking you from closing your door
  • will not leave
  • won't take no for an answer and can be very convincing.

DON'T LET THEM IN!!!

The Pitch:

Either your current system is flawed or FREE SYSTEM.

Either way: $0 down or $99 activation, $59.95/mo. or more for 48 months- This is double the price reputable companies charge.

TOTAL ACTUAL COST TO YOU: $2877.60 + taxes

They even told a few people "We work with Reed Security" when they have no connection to us.

These companies want to install your alarm system within hours of misleading you so that you do not have the time to change your mind.

CONSUMER TIPS

1. Alarm system are never FREE

2. A basic alarm system does not have a value of $1500...it is closer to $300

3. Basic monitoring fees in Saskatoon range from $5/mo. to $29.95/mo....do not spend $59.95/mo.

4. Always get 3 quotes...this will give you time to do some research

5. Do not install an alarm system within hours of signing up...this will give you time to think about it and do some research

6. There are several proven Saskatchewan-based companies with offices...These door to door guys do not have offices in Saskatchewan...they are here only for the summer.

7. Check to seeif the business are TRUSTED or if they are listed with the BBB

7. Call the Consumers Protection Branch: 1-888-374-4636

9. Just say "NO" and don't let them into your home

Please pass this info. on to the people you care about so they don't get ripped off!
