I thought there were laws against abusive telemarketing practices, but apparently the fine folks at ADT Security don’t seem to think that those laws apply to them. They call me at least once a day every day and have been doing that for probably a year now. All in the name of trying to get me to sign up for their securities systems.
I don’t need ADT security. It is worthless to me. I have three dogs and one of them is part wolf. I don’t think any person in their right or left mine is going to try and break into my house. If the other two don’t get him, the wolf will. Just taking my dog for a walk through the neighborhood scares the crap out of everyone – it’s hilarious.
To understand what I mean you have to have a half wolf and half husky or similar wolf hybrid. Wolves are bigger, smarter and much faster than any dog breed. They are the best pets in the world bar none and he best guard dogs money can buy. So if you add to the fact that I am always home – I work out of a home – why would I need an ADT security system?
When I try to explain that to the telemarketers from ADT their responses that burglars carry engine cleaning spray cans which when sprayed on a dog’s nose supposedly kills the dog quickly or something like that. I have never heard of that nor have I ever seen that on the local news here or nationwide news.
I went and asked my local police officers, two of which I see quite often about this claim. They said that it’s complete hogwash and that they have never themselves heard of burglars carrying engine cleaner or other similar spray cans to ward off dogs with. He said the burglars avoid houses with dogs altogether.
So again, I tell this to the ADT telemarketers and tell them to take me off their calling lists and to stop calling here and guess what happens? They call back the next day. Sometimes even call back that same day. Boy, they are really hot on my case to get my business but it’s just not going to happen.
To me ADT’s security service would be absolute worthless. And then when I read up on the Internet about all the horror stories with ADT security service – I know that I definitely don’t have anything to do with ADT in any way shape or form. Now if only they could stop calling me and harassing me that would be great.
