Watch out for door-to-door “security system” sales

A young man showed up on the blog's doorstep last week, mumbling something about "Home Security Systems" and wanting to put a sign in the front yard. He was asked to leave, and did so without much argument.
Yet it turns out the door-to-door effort wasn't limited to the South Perry Neighborhood - it's been all over the South Hill. Readers and Facebook friends (especially around Manito Park) have experienced a variety of high-pressure sales tactics over the past week.
And here's the kicker: judging from some paperwork left behind at one person's residence, the sales people say they are associated with one company, but they actually come from Utah-based Pinnacle Security which has an F rating with the Better Business Bureau.
Here's a link to the Better Business Bureau's warning.
Be careful who you hire - and look out for vulnerable neighbors.
