The RNC has issued a public advisory to homeowners in relation to suspicious door-to-door sales techniques in the St. John’s and surrounding area.
RNC news 12
Over the past several days, RNC officers have responded to numerous reports of suspicious persons going door-to-door selling home security alarm systems.
Complainants have advised the RNC that these sales representatives are incredibly aggressive and providing false information to homeowners. They are providing false statistics about the prevalence of break and entries in the neighborhood and advising that they have a direct contract with the RNC.
No security company has a direct contract with the RNC in response to their alarms.
If approached at your home by a door-to-door sales person, the RNC is recommending that homeowners ask for official identification and contact the organization directly, prior to allowing any stranger into your home or giving them your personal information or money.
