Sheriff Warns of Fake Home Alarm Reps

Individuals going door to door in some neighborhoods could be casing homes to see if they have dogs or an existing alarm system, says Sheriff Kevin Johnson.

Johnson says while there could be some legitimate companies who use door-to-door as a sales technique, homeowners should be wary of whom they let inside.

“Some criminals do pretend to represent a company in order to gain access to people’s homes. We’ve had several complaints about individuals who have been described as appearing to be dressed unprofessional but having an ADT card, asking homeowners questions about their alarm systems. One home owner reported that the person has approached their home more than twice,” says the Sheriff.
