(PLYMPTON-WYOMING, ON) - On February 17, 2020 at approximately 11:00 a.m. the Lambton County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) responded to several calls in relation to a suspicious vehicle in the Town of Plympton-Wyoming.
Initial investigation revealed the occupants of the vehicle were approaching residences and attempting to sell their asphalt services.
The Lambton OPP is urging all homeowners to be very skeptical when someone arrives at your door wanting to inspect your home or inquiring about any personal information about you or your residence.
Here are some tips to protect yourself from a potential door-to-door scam.
Don't feel pressured to make a quick decision - take time to do some research on a seller and the products first
Ask for photo ID, get the name of the person and of the company or charity they represent
Ask for the charity's breakdown of where the funds are allocated. Be sure to get this in writing.
Never share any personal information or copies of any bills or financial statements
Only allow access to your property to people you trust
Research before you invest. Don't sign anything and always read the fine print
Know your rights. Contact your local consumer affairs office- most provinces and territories have guidelines under their consumer protection act.
Reputable companies comply with the law. If you believe the business or salesperson made a false, misleading or deceptive statement you may have further remedies under the Consumer Protection Act. Further information can be found at www.ontario.ca/consumers/your-rights-under-consumer-protection-act
