Protect America door-to-door scam warning
This is a notice about people in the areas of Arizona, Nevada and New Mexico being affected by an apparent door-to-door scam. If you have been affected by this, please let people know your experience and submit your review.
Protect America, Inc., one of the top providers of wireless home security systems, has sent out a warning to customers about door-to-door scams that are happening in western states.
Residents of Arizona, Nevada, and New Mexico are being told to watch out for door-to-door ?salespeople? that are selling home security systems or automation equipment. These scams are reportedly being focused on obtaining personal and financial information and being used for illegal acts. It is also being said that in some cases it involves these scam artists targeting homes with security systems. They then fraudulently act as that person?s home security provider in order to get that person to ?upgrade? their system and lock them into an additional monitoring contract.
*NOTE: This is not to say that there aren’t legitimate Protect America salespeople going door-to-door. A good idea would be to make sure you ask for some kind of company I.D or proof that they are in fact employees of Protect America.
