Colorado Residents: Vivint’s Sales Tactics Are Too Aggressive
Vivint sales representatives have been accused of ignoring ‘no soliciting’ signs when selling security systems door-to-door in Douglas County, Colo.
DOUGLAS COUNTY, Colo. – Residents here claim that sales representatives for Vivint are too aggressive when selling security systems door-to-door.
Officials say residents have complained that Vivint sales representatives have ignored “no soliciting” signs that have been placed in front of homes in the area and that they linger on private property, 7 News Denver reports.
One woman, who is actually a reporter for 7 News Denver, says the sales representative came to her home four times.
Another resident, who is a security professional, claims that the Vivint sales rep came to his home three times, even though the homeowner told him he was not interested in purchasing a security system.
A female resident says two different Vivint sales representatives approached her – once at her home and a second time while she was house sitting at another home in the area – at 9:30 p.m. Both homes had “no soliciting” signs.
All solicitors in Douglas County are required to get a permit through the sheriff’s office; however, authorities claim there is nothing on file for Vivint.
An investigation conducted by CALL7 revealed that Vivint used the name “Arm Marketing” to purchase 51 soliciting permits from the sheriff’s office.
Violating the provisions of the county soliciting permit is a Class 2 petty offense.
The Sheriff’s Office said they’ve gotten some calls, but so far, no one has filed a formal complaint.
