They usually ask to put a small sign on your property. When they come out, there are two of them and they try to talk you into buying a home security system. Never agree to it.

From Home Security System 202-800-5563 Asking my young daughter to buy their system. They said Ir father, gave them the cell number so she would buy it. Now, what the hell would a 17 year old want with a home security system? To top that, they were RUDE to her.
Called, left no msg.
Received a call at 7PM today from HOME SECURITY 202-800-5563. Suspected robo-dialer so answered without saying anything. After approx. 10 seconds a recorded voice said "good-bye". Called number back & left message advising I am on the DNC List and complained to the FTC about their call.
These telemarketers even call on the day before Thanksgiving.....
Constant Home Security Sales Recording. Oh that someone could put them on a block list :(
Call once a week or so - thanks for the update on pressing #2 to be put on the "Do Not Call List." I typically let it go to the answering machine when I see the number.
Got a call from this number @ 3:45pm Did not leave a message
I did not pick up and they did not leave message.
I just got the same call.
Calling @ 8:30a!! Hangs up on me every time I answer!

so are you sure this is a scam ? I just got called about getting new system.
Just got a call from this number ... caller ID said it was out of washington dc. said they were GE w national security. if i put up a security sign in my front yard tgey'd update my security system for free. I told them they are full of it, I'm not letting someone tag my house for ome of your lackies to come by & rob my house gor some faulty security system you must be on crack & hung up on them.
This number just called me. If I don't know the caller, I simply do not answer. (Caller ID is my Very Best Friend!) We're getting 4 to 5 calls daily from numbers like this, from various parts of the nation.
Bottom-feeding, low-life scum.
I don't "opt out" or ask to be taken off their list - that's just a confirmation to them that there is a "live body" at this number, and the calls will just increase.
Let 'em call. If it's anyone legit, they'll leave a message and I'll call them back.
Thank you for the info., I just called back and pushed option #2 to delete my number!
202 " AREA CODE FRAUD SCAMS".........have been going on forever !!!
( already addressed here and in the forums a million times already.......everyone should know by now !!! ).
202 area code fraud scams !!!!!
PLEASE NOTE !!! THESE SCAMMERS ARE ALSO IMPERSONATING THE US GOV'T / SEVERAL GOV'T OFFICES AND PERSONS....BEWARE !!!
- they are also impersonating DEA officials / IRS etc.... with threats to arrest you unless you immediately send money via wire transfer / western union to some offshore country !!!!! obvious scam !!!
some are landlines...many are cell phones...some are spoofed and linked to offshore foreign call centers / countries !!!!
we've traced back most of these numbers to offshore foreign call centers mostly in INDIA / THAILAND / AFRICA / JAMAICA ETC....
here's a few other numbers posted from the same area code offering a wide variety of scams / fake emails and scams after posting something on craigslist ( old scam ) ...... collecting for non existant " payday loans "....free money / scam giveaways / calling on behalf of a humane society..... $1,000's in free gov't money......... etc etc.....stories change out all the time......and the usual nonsense!!!
** mysteriously call to claim they have several thousand of dollars to send you....just provide your bank account and credit card right away etc etc.........scam scam
several of these are the usual long ongoing scams such as : you have won a free walmart / bestbuy gift card....or you have won a free ipad etc......all long ongoing scams
Kept calling...left no message...I called back and the robo answer didn't identify the company...just gave me the option of talking to a CSR or putting me on do not call list. I opted for do not call list...
Said they are GE Home Security... I hung up
Selling home security systems... suspect
Say they are GE Home Security (further investigation: GE is General Equipment not General Electric)... claim to be out of Palm Beach, FL... no website or really anything under "General Equipment Home Security" on google
