Beware of anyone coming to your door claiming to be there to upgrade your security system. They aren’t. They may be trying to sell you a different company’s system. They disable your current system, and without you asking for a change, they sign you up for a long term contract with another company. The excuse they use is, “we are just updating your contract.”
These scammers have used the following tactics to gain access to your home:
- They say, “I’m here from Honeywell (or some other company), representing Armed Response Team, to upgrade your system.”
The truth: We NEVER use door-to-door tactics and won’t show up without an appointment. Honeywell is just a manufacturer of equipment, and they don’t have any direct sales people.
- They say, “The crime rate in your neighborhood is way up, so we’re offering special deals to you and your neighbors to upgrade your security system.”
The truth: Armed Response Team doesn’t use scare tactics to market our services. Instead, we use our former Albuquerque Police Department Officers’ years of experience in knowing how burglars act to recommend a full-coverage security plan to protect you and your home or business right from the beginning.
If anyone shows up at your door using these tactics, don’t let them in. Instead, report them to the Albuquerque Police Department by calling 242-COPS (2677). These individuals are up to no good. Then call us at 237-2278 to let us know, too. And learn more about ART at www.armedresponseteam.com
