How to protect yourself from dishonest visitors

Have you ever opened your front door to a salesperson, only to end up thinking: there's something weird going on here?

Follow these easy tips when confronted with dishonest visitors

Pay attention to the details and ask questions

  • Check for identification (record their name)
  • Obtain contact information for their company, including address and phone number
  • Never agree to verbal contracts (get everything in writing)

If the visitor states they're from your security company

  • Reach out and confirm your appointment with us

Common phrases

  • "Your company went out of business" (Not True!)
  • "Your company was bought out" (Not True!)
