Just a warning to everyone.
My fiance and I met with an ADT security representative the other day. I am trying to start a home business soon and they were offering a great deal, a $1,200.00 security system for free. My fiance and I had some questions to ask before we even wanted to consider having them set up a security system. When the rep got to our home we made a little small talk and then, the rep took us by surprise. The rep stated that nothing about ADT and their services could even be discussed without our giving the rep our SSN's so our credit score could be checked. I was very reluctant to continue the meeting. We could not even ask any questions at all without giving our information. I kept hesitating, and the rep kept insisting that it was ADT's policy. So against my better judgement we both caved in. Our SSN's were scratched out infront of us after they were called in for the credit check. Then when our scores came back too low, the rep said that we would have to pay about $400.00 as a deposit right then and there before we could go any further. I said we would have to seriously consider it. And the rep left, NONE of our questions were ever discussed or answered and we never found out anything about ADT's security system.
We have decided NEVER to work with them again. I am still very upset by the entire meeting and the rep's conduct and how pushy the rep was.
When I originally made the appointment for the rep to meet with us, I was told that the rep would explain their security system, answer any questions we have, and that I was under no obligation to sign with them. HOWEVER, I was NOT informed of the credit check in advance, or that without it they can't even answer questions we had, if I had been, I NEVER would have allowed the meeting to take place.
