ADT Scammers Target Little Rock Neighborhood; ADT Offers Tips to Identify Frauds

The scammers use the disguise of ADT representatives to gain access to people’s homes.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Scammers posing as ADT workers have made their rounds here as they try to trick homeowners into letting them gain unwarranted access into their homes.

Matt Sullivan, a resident of Cherry Creek Neighborhood where one scammer has been spotted, told THV11 the person claiming to be with ADT looked and sounded professional and even had ADT logos on his uniform.

Unfortunately, this is not a unique occurrence. Back in January, a group posing as ADT security representatives tried entering Virginia mobile homes. And in November, a Salt Lake City man scammed an elderly woman out of thousands of dollars by posing as a home security representative.

ADT issued the following two statements for homeowners to keep an eye on in order to tell if the salesman is an actual representative or a scammer:

  1. If the rep says ADT has been taken over by another company, has changed its name or is going out of business.
  2. ADT home security systems cannot protect your home without being connected to a landline.

Sullivan just wants to make sure he knows the people who are in his home. “I don’t want strangers in my home that I don’t know,” he said.
