Last Word on a home-security scam, April 19


Homeowners take note

Warning to new home owners:  At 8:30 p.m., on April 12, my son and daughter-in-law had a man show up at their door claiming to represent a major security system and put a lot of pressure on them to get inside their home. There was an unmarked, light-colored van in their driveway in which he claimed his supervisor was sitting.  He was dressed in a sweatshirt and a cap with the company logo, but no I.D.  They called the non-emergency JCC police number and filed notice of this.  I contacted the home security company and was told that this is not their procedure.  Seems we have another scammy/criminal element loose...
