How To Ensure A Door To Door Caller Is Legitimate
These days there are all sorts of horror stories about people calling door to door and the fact that sometimes they are not genuine but are trying to con you out of money or get access to your home with a view to stealing from you.
So what can you do to stay safe?
The single biggest thing is to ensure that you identify them. Get to see their id by either shouting through the door for them to hold up their id or opening the door with the safety catch on to look at their id.
Then phone the company using the number from the yellow pages or other business directory - never that written on the card itself - to ensure that they are who they say that they are.
