Honeywell Security Complaint - Harassment
CALIFORNIA -- A guy shows up on my porch and rings doorbell. I asked him "How can I help you and who are you representing?" He stated he is representing the Local Police Department and to please step out of the house. I said again "Who are you representing?" He said the Police Department and I need you to step out of the house. He kept flashing some badge as he would say who he's representing. I did finally step out because I had other family members home and he asked to me step out to the city sidewalk and asked me if I had any new neighbors on the block. I said "yes" but did not point out where.
He asked me several other questions that I thought was suspicious that I did not answer directly. Then he asked me do I see the signs on the block? I said no and what is this about. He then pointed to an ADT security sign in my neighbors yard and that's when I looked at his shirt that said "Honeywell" and his badge that said "APX" on it and I then told him that this is a bunch of crap. This is a sales technique and that he should not be falsely representing that he is with the local Police department. I told him I already have a home security system and to please leave my property. He then said "Maam, I need to check your old security system. Let me in your residence to check your system."
Reminding me again that he is with the local Police Department. I told him No! I do not know who you are and he then said "I don't know you either Maam". My son, then heard how loud, and belligerent the guy was getting, so my son told him to get off our property right now. My mom said she does not know you and does not want your product. He told my son, I don't know you either and I was talking to your mom. I then locked the door immediately. The Honeywell sales guy once again said I am with the local Police Dept, please open the door and at least take my brochure. I said No! Leave it on the door, and then I said no don't leave it. I'm calling the POLICE!!!!! He then left. I called my local police and after talking to three people including the watch commander, they said they would send a unit but it would be a while before they could send someone. In the meantime they would beef up patrol in the area.
NOTHING....happened so these guys are still out there. Just BEWARE!!!! This is not a Sales approach that would make me consider buying their product EVER!!!!
