Buyer beware. Door-to-door sales of solar panels, alarm systems, and other home improvement goods and services are rife with scams. Bad actors coupled with new technology and a legal system that has not always caught up have left consumers vulnerable.
Not all deals are bad ones, but there are things that you should look for. Never hand a sales rep your cellphone or leave your phone open and unattended. Do not e-sign documents unless you have seen the entire document and are sure of what you are signing onto. If you have any indication that a wrong address was used by you or someone assisting you during the sign up process or is shown in documents you are provided with at a later time, contact an attorney to look over the documents. You have a right to ask them to send you a copy of the agreement to your email address before you e-sign any document. If they won’t agree, think twice. And, if someone claims that you signed up for something, and you know that you did not, contact an attorney immediately. Often, time is of the essence.
