MADISON (WKOW) -- State consumer protection officials have a warning about fake door-to-door home security salesmen.
The Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection says consumers are complaining about door-to-door sales agents talking their way into a number of Janesville and Milwaukee homes.
The salespeople claim the homeowner's current provider is going out of business, or that they need to provide a required equipment upgrade.
DATCP warns homeowners to be on the lookout for these operations and to avoid allowing these individuals into your home.
Sandy Chalmers, Administrator of Trade and Consumer Protection says, "If someone comes to your door claiming they represent your current home security company, call the company to confirm that before handing over money or signing a contract."
