Citizen issues fraud alert

Dear Editor,

I am writing to inform and alert your readers concerning a home security fraud episode.

We live in Gadsby. A young man approached us at home and announced he was with a company which had bought out our current security system.

He was there to inform us and to upgrade our electronics. He removed our system and installed his.

We believed him and it wasn’t until our former company called that we knew the whole story was untrue. Our company HAD NOT been taken over.

We alerted our credit card company, the police and retained a lawyer.

Consumer Protection has been made aware also.

It is an upsetting incident and it has not been resolved yet.

 

C. and V. Gerlach
