I am always leary of companies I don't know calling me or coming to the door offering something they will install in my house. After four years in the criminal defense business, I have had quite a few clients, convicted felons, who get jobs working for shady contractors that do work in the home.
We had one of those security monitoring scams going door to door in our neighborhood about a year ago. My wife called the sheriffs office to ask about them and they didn't know anything about them. They said they were going to track them down to ask some questions. A day or two after that they came around again when my wife was outside doing some yardwork. She told them she had contacted the sherriffs office and they were looking for them. She said they got a real funny look to their face and quickly went away. We have never seen them again,BTW.
Soon after that we put a no soliciting sign on our door. I just don't want to be bothered with these salesman and the junk they have to sell. About week or so ago someone rung the doorbell. I answered it and it was another one of these security monitoring scammers. I ask him if he saw my sign. He said he did and had the gall to say he wasn't soliciting and only taking a survey. I then proceeded to tell him to get off my property or I will be calling the police right away. Haven't seen any of them since. They were dressed in orange BTW and stood out very much. Actually much like the convict road workers.
