This isn’t the first time we’ve heard reports of suspicious door-to-door sales people in the neighborhood. From a reader:
This evening our house was approached by a man representing himself as being with Honeywell. He indicated he was in the neighborhood swapping out security systems, though he said he wasn’t selling anything.
My mother in law–who answered the door–did not let him in or provide him any info. He didn’t offer or leave a business card. She says he was wearing a uniform of sorts and he said he’d be in the area for a bit. She said he appeared to be going to other houses and was driving a van.
We do have an ADT sign in our yard, but we didn’t ask for anyone to service our house. In all it was extremely suspicious and we’re pretty convinced this was a scam to scope out houses for possible theft.
