The Duxbury Fire Department said this week they have learned, form fire officials in another community, that a company called APX Alarm Security out of Provo, Utah has been targeting different communities with strong arm tactics selling alarm systems.Â They usually go after the elderly.Â The sales reps push hard for the homeowner to sign a contract on the spot, even if there is already an alarm system on premise.
Reportedly, once the contract is signed and a minimal deposit changes hands, an installer shows up within minutes!Â The tech then installs a simple, wireless system, (disconnecting the exiting alarm if there is one), gets the customerâ€™s signature, and leaves.
More than a few times, in the wake of this sell/install/retreat blitzkrieg, there remains a customer who is legally obligated to pay for two alarm systems, the one he already had, and the one just installed!
Please call the Duxbury Fire Department at 781-934-5693 with any questions or concerns.
