First of all you said you didnt open the door, So how do you know who it could have been?
If you werent sure, why would you start a thread that states ADT door to door sales scam? Right there you're saying with a doubt this was a scam!!
You have started a rumor that has continued since 2006, Wheres the proof?
Why are you afraid to open your door? Your fear has created one big story here pal. Have you ever heard of slander?
Maybe your headline should have said, Im not sure who was at my door, possible scam? Has ADT done something to you personally?
If it was ADT then they were in your neighborhood possibly because there's been a lot of crime there. They research police reports and target those neighborhoods.
This is one of the sites ADT uses to research high crime areas.

I cant stand people who make crap up!
You started a thread and not once came back to agree or disagree with anyone. You should be ashamed of yourself mostly for being a paranoid NUT! In my opinion your a spineless coward!
Why didnt you call the cops? Why didnt you do anything but hop on here? Did you know the Internet is used for research?
Im not prone to call people names but your a jacka$$!!
To anyone thinking I work for ADT, No I dont. I had there alarm system installed with fire alarms, about 5 months ago. It works perfect not one problem and very easy to use.
"I cant stand people who make crap up! You should be ashamed of yourself mostly for being a paranoid NUT!" Thanks Dr Phil for your assessment, how people like you hold a job is one of the great mysteries of our time. Hooray for quotas!!

I currently work for a Southern CA ADT dealer. Outside sales can be very lucrative. Our reps make upwards of 5-700 dollars per self generated deal. Our training is easy and if you work only 40 hrs a week you should take home 1-2 grand a week. THINK ABOUT IT. What could you do with 1-2 grand a week? I came to CA 4 years ago in a beat up minivan with 2500 hundred dollars to my name. I found this job and have worked here for 3.5 years. I now have a condo with views of the ocean, a new car, trips to Fiji,Hawaii,New Orleans,Greece and New York all on my wage that I earn. I got money in the bank if I need it. Grant it there is no base salary BUT who cares when you make great money. While you work 40 hours a week banking your friends are working the same if not more and are making peanuts. We don't ride your ass we just want you to do good because when you do we do. What it all boils down to is numbers and attitude. Your going to have to get out there and knock on some doors and pass out some flyers to homeowners and business owners but I guarantee for every 100 people you contact you get minimally 1 sale.I promise your doing no more than any other sales job requires and your doing a lot less than you would be stocking shelves in a warehouse for 8 bucks an hour. You can contact 100 people in 2 days easily. We have a 5 step process that makes generating customers a snap. I have reps that are models, single moms, you name it. If you want to work and have a good attitude your on the team. If your interested in learning more contact me BUT please don't contact me just to waste my time. If you want a job and like money, flexibility and a cool ass boss than yes contact me otherwise please do NOT waste mine or your time. ryan@homealert.com Good luck and God Bless.

yeah, a lot of them are ex-cons that can;t get real jobs and the seedy distributors don't check their backgrounds because they make them "independent contractors" so they dont get held liable for anything that they do.
In order to sell alarms you go through an extensive fingerprinting and background check to receive an ACE license. I've been selling ADT door to door for 3 years now.

This just happened to me. Attempted break-in 5 nights ago. ADT guy parks outside my door and rings my bell. Says he's got nothing to sell when I yell through my window that I'm not interested. Immediately drives away and doesn't ring anybody else's bell. What a coincidence, huh. BTW, the cops got a nice juicy thumb print, so if this is a scam, or a desperate salesman, they better beware.

Im currently employed by ADT authorized dealer. We train hard and work hard. In the heat of summer or the raining cold days of winter. We bust our back to make a decent living. And in some cases, take a pay cut or commission cut to help out people. We get yelled at, slammed at and some times, kick out of neighborhood. But guess what? If we can help and secure a home, a family, it was all worth it. I love my job, I love my team. I love this great company or any company that gives me a piece of the American pie. I love walking and exploring difference city's, neighborhoods n different cultures. The pay is great, the set backs are temporary. The joy n happyness is a life time. You learn how to handle stress, while being under pressure. To think on your toes. To make a win win for both sides. Remember in everything, a bad apple or two will spoiled the bunch. I hope U can realize that door knocking business takes a lot of effort n hard works. Sometimes going on weeks without a sale. Won't stop, can't stop! ADT is on the rise! Much prop for all security n door knockers out there. God bless

All you do just ask if you can take their pictures. If he smiles and say sure, then he/she is good. Also make sure u send it to a friend. Look at his reaction. You should get a sense if he is for real or not. Also contact he's supervisor or ask for his id? For me, I like to give my flyer that has My picture on it. Also u can say, smile this who neighborhood got you on camera! Lol

REPLY: If you call the police you are on public record - possibly even in your local newspaper. If not reported to the police - yes you have a set-up.

If you call the police about a robbery - you are on public record, not if you didn't, its obvious that you have been setup.

Being a former ADT employee, we all had to undergo a background check to obtain licensing. They go door to door typically in neighborhoods that have documented burglaries....They are not ex-cons and some of us made well over six figures in that business!!!!

99.00 special is a false sense of security, 2 doors and a motion is not going to secure your home

So don't fall for the banana in the tail pipe trick, if you get a real alarm it's not going to take 1 to two hours install it a good security system with 1control 1keypad 1receiver 14 openings 2 glass breaks and a motion now that's a real security system and a Legit sales person and a Legit company is going to let you know with parts and labor it's going to cost you about 1200.00 installed. But that is a real security system.and it will take 6 to 8 hours to install program and test every point properly

You don't sell don't use that term. It's a service people need like cable dish network, etc... I LOVE MY JOB AFTER THE FACT THAT PEOPLE/customers say thanks for your concern on protecting!! Our home! For about a dollar a day and 99 installation fee it's a no brainier for home owners. Plus on California it's 2 year contract suckas!!

some one knocked on my door at 9pm. my family & myself were all in the livingroom. i told my husband not to open the door if he didn't know them. i asked through the door who is it. he said tyler or tyrone. i said tyler who. he said i'm with an alarm service. i said we didn't need anything. i called our sheriff's dept & they came out to canvas the area. in the mean time my husband went out to smoke. the man went to some doors but not to all. he wasn't sure if he had on a uniform but he had a flasliht. the neighbor right beside me were up & he didn't go see them at all. if he does work for an alarm service they need to stop by 7pm or earlier when the daylight is gone! I don't know if he was supposedly with ADT but that is the only people we have gotten around here in years.
Last year a a white unmarked construction van was driving slowly through the neighborhood but it had no ladders or equipment visible to be seen & 3 people were walking & 1 was driving & another riding in the front of the van going door to door. they all had on the ADT uniforms but with that many people...it seemed suspicious. If i want or wanted service i would call ADT directly to make an appointment! you never know if the person at your door works or is still working for the company they are alleging they work for. The uniform could be old or stolen or borrowed & wanting your information or scoping a possible crime.

I don't know about your area but ADT does still do door to door in Corpus. They didn't Havre a car because a lot of door to door sales groups will get dropped off in a neighborhood in groups by their manager then get picked up once they are done.

I am a attorney and it bugs me to hear things like this but lets face it security for the family and our possessions In todays society is very important I have adt and im very pleased with it but what you must understand is before you sign your name or make commitments to people or companies you need to read over the contract. unfortunately if the contract reads three years its three years and you cant blame someone else for your situations read over everything before you sign and if the next person signed up for the existing system your out of the contract there happy with the protection you got what you wanted so where is the problem even I understood hey mike we will give you a free system you pay for monitoring keep it three years so we recoup the price and some profit your safe at. night everbody wins after all there in the buisness to make money suck it up guy stop crying aand take the time to read before you sign.
