Door-to-Door Security Salesmen - An Ongoing Concern for Baton Rouge

As this is still going on and seems to be more prevalent lately, we are posting this reminder:

We urge our customers, and all Baton Rouge residents, to be aware that unlicensed security system salesmen are going door-to-door in & around the Baton Rouge area scamming residents into "switching" to them. These salesmen, and the companies they work for, are not licensed or authorized by the Louisiana State Fire Marshal and have not passed criminal background checks. They often install shoddy or even non-functioning systems in people's homes and often move out of state after the summer months where they solicit door-to-door selling "security systems".

Please read our informative blog post about these scams to better protect you, your home, and your loved ones. If you have any questions or concerns about this or have had them knock on your door, please don't hesitate to contact us at (225) 292-5276.
