Police warn of door-to-door security system sales

Posted: Updated:
SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police are warning residents of salespeople going door-to-door selling security systems.

Several Ardsley Park residents have reported people knocking on doors and offering security systems valued as high as $1,500 for free in return for the recipients allowing themselves to be used as advertising for the systems.

Authorities have found no area security system companies that market their items in such a manner. Police say any sales person coming to a resident's door must be able to show a permit from the city to do so. Residents should not accept a logo on a shirt as evidence of authenticity.

Residents who are approached or who feel unsure about the legitimacy of anyone selling items to them should call police immediately.
