We recently became aware that several out-of-state home security dealers and ADT Dealer Aggregators have been causing problems in Georgia. This week we interviewed Brant Henke, President of American Guardian to get his assessment of the growing problem. When we spoke to him Brant related: “ There is absolutely a growing problem from out of state companies and ADT Dealer Aggregators who use direct mail, telemarketing, and the internet to snare their Georgia customers. Most of the time they will sell the customer over the phone then obtain their social security number and run their credit sometimes without the customer’s permission. They then put them into a three year contract. Then they will send one of their subcontractors out to install a substandard system. Their installers are trained to start drilling holes in the customer’s home before the customer sees what is actually going to be installed. They do this to lock the customer in. Most of these out of state companies do not even maintain an office in Georgia. Some of the worst misrepresentations now seem to be coming from the ADT Aggregators. An aggregator is a third party marketing company that generates leads and sales for out of state ADT Dealers through internet websites and telemarketing. They sell the customers to the highest ADT bidder. Recently, one of my customers told me they got a call from an obvious aggregator. She asked what the name of the dealer was and the telemarketer told her we do not know yet but it would be some ADT dealer in your area.”
Brant went on the say, “We strongly advise that you do business with a locally based security dealer that you can check out thoroughly. American Guardian is featured on consumer advocate Clarks Howard’s website and offers quality monitoring on a month to month basis at only $12.00 per month.”
